Audio Technica ATH-W1000 review

 

We enjoy some late-night listening with AT's striking ‘phones

Comfortable ; Quite lightweight ; Great sound detail

No 3.5mm adaptor ; Styling won't be for everyone

These snazzy 'phones are very comfortable to wear

Comfortable ; Quite lightweight ; Great sound detail

No 3.5mm adaptor ; Styling won't be for everyone

The presentation may be a little too 'bright' for the liking of some - and it can't be 'tamed' unless a treble control or equaliser is to hand

Audio Technica ATH-W1000 headphones review

 

These are an exceptional pair of reference headphones for the price with sonic accuracy across the board and brutal detail from upper low end to the top of the high end. Only deep bass fans will find fault with the subtle bass presence. Overall, these...

Superb sound quality ; Transparent sound ; Stunning detail across the board ; Bright without being harsh ; Great design ; Decent construction

Cloth-wrapped cabling ; Low-end presence isn't hugely prominent

Conclusion Without question these are superb reference headphones and are pitched at an attractive £400 price for the serious home musician or the discerning audiophile. If you crave that extra bass presence, look towards Denon's outstanding AH-D5000s

Expert review by:

Audio Technica ATH-W1000 Sovereign

 

Pricey, but they do exactly as the designer intended

Comfortable; deliver a massive amount of insight into a recording; well-judged sonic balance

A slight lack of subtlety in the midrange and treble

The W1000's are comfortable cans and fit quite perfect on my head. The cups don't swivel in the vertical plane, so if you have an unusually small or large head, this comfy fit may not apply to you. The surrounds are leather(ette?). Fumbling with the...

These cans are a pleasure to own. They are beautiful to look at and the sound is warm and liquid. That said, I need to stress that 98% of my listening consists of big band vocals, show music, 1950-90s ballads, Streisand, Sinatra, Broadway shows. etc....

Product Specifications

Audio-Technica's ATH-W100 wooden headphones were among its most popular models. Now, those phones have been revamped into the ATH-W1000, sure to carve their own niche in the audiophile market. The closed back, Double Air Damping System (D.A.D.S.) provides solid bass reproduction, while the faux-leather ear pads with wooden cups are comfortable and look beautiful as they isolate your ears from outside noise. Compatible with SACD playback for the ultimate sonic experience.
