Audio-Technica ATH AD500X

 

Audio-Technica ATH AD500X

Great reproduction of the higher end of the spectrum ; Open, airy, almost 'sparkly' sound ; Unmatched comfort

Flat response purists would've wished it to be more neutral ; Not very suitable for small heads

More than two years ago we received the ATH AD300 from Audio-Technica for review. Those headphones left an indelible mark with their open airy sound and unmatched comfort; and when we got our hands on the AD 500X recently, it was sweet nostalgia all...

High-Quality Product but...

 

I would recommend this product to other people, even more so if adjustments were made to the headset itself concerning sizing.

Open-air headphones which are comfortable; Can be used as a stereo (though this may risk damaging it)

Not completely adjustable. I have a relatively smaller than average head-size so it's a little big. If I wear a hood/hoodie with it on it fits perfectly, but if your head is larger it should be fine. Long periods of time with it on my head in a certain...

audiophile sound, 1/4 price

 

These headphones are open-backed, which helps with audio quality and perceived soundstage, but it also allows more sound to leak from the backs, and in quiet rooms (i.e. a library) it might be noticeable to other people in the vicinity.

first and foremost, the sound quality of these headphones is absolutely fantastic, and while in the world of headphones costing $1000 or more it would be decent, with its price tag of under $200 it's one of the best values on audio equipment that I've...

the cable is a bit long, and the one I got had a bit of a kink in it just below the earcup because of the packaging, but in all this is just nitpicking.

Easy comparison to 500 audiophile headphones. Fantastic.

 

Apart from my single con of not being able to resize to my head contour, where'as the bottom kind of squeezes harder that the top.... this headphones are TOP NOTCH. They sound amazing. Might even get an amplifier and see how far they can go before...

Good sound for the price, but disappointing in Design!

 

When I first got these, I was very impressed by the sound they produced for the price. Good quality, nice clear sound all round, decent volume too! However after a while I realised that they were lacking in wholesomeness of sound and realised that was...
