Audio-Technica ATH-AD900X


These cans are comfortable and swank, but have a somewhat odd frequency response.

Great headphone, Can use it for hours without fatigue


My personal thoughts on audio hardware When I heard these headphones, I wasn't blown away at all. But headphones never did this with me, and in my opinion, all headphones sounds kinda the same anyway. When I heard the LCD-2, my thoughts were, sure...

Very comfortable (best part for me), Good sound quality

Cheap cable

Excellent value, good representation of the ATH AD sound


Note: This headphone is for music that does not rely heavily on bass for enjoyment; it doesn't have that body at the lower end that is for that genre. If you listen to mainstream pop a lot, these are likely not for you. These headphones are not all...

Crispy highs, wide soundstage, great with vocals

Lacking bass impact, highs can be slightly fatiguing, can be picky with genre

Wonderful sound and soundstage


I'll start off by saying I am by no means an audiophile, just a kid with some money and a passion for music. These headphones, as far as I can tell, have more prominent mids than most headphones. They really bring out vocals and instruments, but the...

Great soundstage; good, balanced sound; VERY open (can be a con for some); sexy-looking pair!

Non-removable cable that can slightly irritate your shoulder; some buzzing when using my amp at low voltage;

Audio Technica have done a brilliant job with the ATH-AD900x


Having a V-Moda Crossfade LP2 for a while now and very impressed with its sound quality and comfort as closed-back headphones, I was looking for a set of open-backs for certain genres of music that the LP2 does not deliver too well: live music and slow...

Audio quality, comfort, easy to drive (38-ohm), nice looking albeit large

Made of lots of plastic parts, cable not replaceable

Fantastic entry-level headphones--clear, natural Sound and don't need an amp at all


Background and listening experience: I bought these as a complementary headphone for my ZMF Vibros. I wanted something open and I've been curious about Audio Technica for a while. In the past, I've owned the MDR-V6, DT-990 Pro, Q701, and HE-400....

Aggressive but not harsh presentation, bass impact, natural mids, unique and large soundstage, no amp needed

Some grain and not the most resolving

New to headphone hobby/obsession, but i am loving it with these bubs! Just a quickie on the stars: half-star off because it's not really adjustable for head-size unless using a rubberband or shoelace like many others have said. Quarter-star off because...

sound quality, sound stage, comfortability, light weight

not adjustable to fit my head so it slips downwards a bit, as many others have reported

Excellent detail, Excellent price


Today I went into my local headphone store with a mission to find a set of headphones to pair with my iBasso DX50. I had been running with a pair of UE6000's up until this point but felt I wasnt getting as much as I should be from my DAP so I took it...

Beautiful sound, solid design

Un-boxing is a little anti-climactic, Felt a little loose until rubber band mod, No removable Cable

Great sound stage with beautiful airyness!


Let me start be addressing the "le no base XD" ... No these cans are definitely not for bass heads by any means (so they could use a bit for for those who mainly listen to things such as dubstep or really bassy rap and what not) but these headphones...

Sound stage is super wide, Punchy Bass, Sparkly highs, really detailed!

Without the rubber band mod they're kinda uncomfortable, not for bass heads
