Audio-Technica ATH-W1000X Grandioso Headphone (Playback 46)

 

Audio-Technica's ATH-W1000X “Grandioso” headphone ($699.99) debuted at the CES 2011 show this past January, and from the moment I first heard it I felt that the firm was on to something special. Right off the bat, two things surprised me about the...

Audio-Technika ATH-W1000X review

 

With its new high-end flagship headphone, Audio-Technica looks to take on the mighty Sennheiser

Great bass and power ; Modest background noise reduction

Slight coloration ; Headband awkward to handle

A fine advert for the virtues of closed back headphones

Audio Technica ATH-W1000X

 

Best home on-ear headphones ?500-?800, Awards 2010. If you want to listen to music around other people, these closed-back beauties are the way to do so

Superb sound by the standards of closed-back headphones

Not cheap; don?t feel that secure on your head

Audio Technica ATH-W1000X

 

With ‘Grandioso' emblazoned in gold script on the packaging, and in black script along the lacquered wood of Audio Technica's ATH-W1000X, it's clear these headphones are not intended for the hoi poloi. No, these are ‘important' headphones.

Excellent sound reproduction, Light as air to wear

Need to factor in the cost of a headphone amp, Won’t be a good fit for all heads

Amazing Sound

 

These sound amazing paired with a dedicated headphone amp and a high quality source. Much better for various kinds of music as opposed to a certain genre, a reason why I've chose them. I used to own the W5000's and those were only suited for certain...
