    Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica ATH-W5000 High-Fidelity Dynamic Headphones:

    These headphones were fantastic and clear. They did well with my desktop amp and lasted a long time. i use these with a portable amp on the ride to school and crank them up. I didn't expect them to do well with metal music as well as they did. However the clarity really shows in the songs by bands like Nightwish. I highly recommend

      Not being a stranger to audiophile quality headphones, and after owning my fair share of headgear, these cans offer an excellent and reliable sound stage that offers a neutral listening experience. These are the closest I've ever come to experiencing studio monitor quality while not using actual studio monitors. Get these if you want the best bang for your buck!

          I am a fan of music that requires accurate reproduction of the mid-range and the ATH-W5000 does this very, very well. If you are not looking for DEEP BASS then these phones deserve a listen.

          I have had them for almost sixty days now and they are really breaking in nicely.

                Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica ATH-W5000 High-Fidelity Dynamic Headphones:

                I use these headphones for many things including solo instrumental recording/editing, watching TV, and listening to an iPod or other audio device. The headphones seem to give a true sound quality for the most part, but give almost perfect low end bass quality. They allow the user to become a true audiophile and shun things away that compress your music (you can tell with these). The comfort level is unsurpassed. You will never want to wear another set of headphones and can forget that you are wearing them all together. Overall they are great headphones, but I wouldn't wear them out in public because you'll look like an alien with them on.
                my score = 9.5/10

                    Comments about AUDIO-TECHNICA Audio Technica ATH-W5000 High-Fidelity Dynamic Headphones:

                    The W5000's are the best headphones I've owned or listened to, and I've been around the block when it comes to headphones. I could honestly writes pages about these but I'll attempt to keep it brief.

                    These headphones have a very specific purpose in the broad range of things. There are head phones for travel, for working out, for walking to the market, and for studio use. The W5000's are none of those. These headphones excel and should be applied to a very few specific purposes only, mainly as headphones for one to just relax and enjoy music with.

                    These full sized headphone's sound signature excels with female vocals, acoustic guitars, and string and brass instruments. If you enjoy these kind of musics, or any music with pronounced mid ranges and trebles- you're in for a treat. If you're looking for a greater bass extension or a headphone that's better suited for a broader range of music I suggest you check out Audio Technica's AT-W1000X.

                    Despite being low impedance headphones a headphone amp is recommended for these to really give the music a full body.

                    My biggest recommendation is to keep them in their case or on a headphone stand (mine are on the Audio Technica AT-HPS500) until you're ready to use them to keep these beautiful headphones safe.

                    The included case is very high quality and borderline luxurious.

                    If you're serious about music like Audio Technica is than these may be the headphones for you.

                        I bought these awhile back, and they grow on you everyday.
                        The soundquality with a great soundcard with built-in amplifier just rocks my world.

                        They fit so well, and me as a gamer wear them for hours, it feels like they aren't on me.

                        And they can take a beating, have dropped them on the floor a couple of times, still works fine.

                        All in all 10/10

                            I do location classical recording. Many times this will be choir festivals where I am recording 6-8 hours. The A700 headphones are accurate and true to the sound being recorded. Just as important they are very comfortable and seem to float on my head. I feel no tightness or pressure points and the balanced reproduction keep my ears from being fatigued.
