Audio-Technica ATH-A700


A close cousin to Audio-Technica's ATH-AD700, the ATH-A700 read as if they are simply the close-backed version of the same headphone. On closer inspection however, we discovered several key differences which help to earn the A700 a much higher rating...

Excellent midrange production ; Rich Bass ; Sturdy construction ; Cloth-covered 10-foot cord

Bulky ; No storage or transport case ; Require a powerful source

The close-backed ATH-A700 outperforms its open-backed cousin in every way, seizing a deserved spot at the top of the heap for this price range.

Audio-Technica ATH-AD700


We've reviewed several pairs of Audio-Technica headphones over the past year and really enjoyed them. On paper, the ATH-AD700 look like they could be another winning set of cans from Audio-Technica, a highly reputable manufacturer of all things...

Excellent midrange production ; Accurate Bass ; Well constructed ; Long, 10ft cord

Ill-fitting and cumbersome ; Aggressive, metallic sounding Highs ; Won’t fit directly into iPhone

High-end looks and airy midrange make Audio-Technica’s ATH-AD700 appealing for the price tag, but shrill highs and poor fit drag down an otherwise impressive pair of headphones.

Audio-Technica ATH-A700 Headphones Review - Intro


The Audio-Technica ATH-A700 headphones are on-ears intended for use with your home sound system. The cable is long and covered with a woven-cloth casing, so it should be safe stretched across your room. There's also a 1/4-inch adapter included to...

Interesting aesthetic, seem durable ; Very, very low distortion, good maximum volume output ; Very comfortable, long cord, can disassemble ; They have much lower distortion than we typically see

Will look silly on a layperson, bulkier than average ; Average to below average performance on every other test ; Not portable, not many customization options ; You can find better headphones for less money

The Audio-Technica ATH-A700s are above average. They have great distortion and cable connectivity, and are comfortable enough for any movie marathon. Like all over-ears, they're not particularly portable, but chances are, if you're reading this, you...

Audio-Technica ATH-AD700


While their looks aren't for everyone, the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700s should satisfy many.

Considering their price point in conjunction with their sound quality, the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700s are a fantastic buy for novice audiophiles, or anyone looking for a good set of headphones for their tablet or computer at home. Additionally, they...

Audio-Technica ATH-A700X Review


Personally I usually prefer my ATH-M50 because I prefer boosted deep bass and less midrange emphasis, but these ATH-A700X win on open and airy sound.

Audio-Technica ATH-A700 Headphone Review


After three weeks with the ATH-A700 Closed-back Dynamic Headphones, we very much enjoyed these but we encountered a few caveats. The ATH-A700 headphones are extremely comfortable and these look beautiful. The headphones were very good in our music...

Audio Technica AD700 Review


The Audio Technica AD700 is a very popular headphone that is widely considered to be among the best-sounding headphones under $100. I have listened to the AD700 several times in noisy meet situations and left away liking it. Now that these headphones...

These two headphones are very good-sounding. In fact, I’m quite amazed at how good their sound quality is considering their price. In the past few years, we have seen increase an influx in choices in the higher end part of the headphones market;...

Audio-Technica ATH-A700


The Audio-Technica ATH-A700's are large, over-the-ear headphones available for $299. Their low distortion and lack of isolation makes them good for a private listening session. Their size and loose fit means they aren't ideal for walking around town....

The ATH-A700's performance was inconsistent. The frequency response was all over the map at higher frequencies, with particular de-emphasis on the drums. They lack active noise cancellation and leak a lot of noise, so if you're in a public place,...
