Second headphones review: Audio-Technica ATH-AD1000. The ATH-M50 impressed us when reviewed headphones under $150… But what about this up-market product? Audio-Technica ATH-AD1000.

Los Teignos’ Conclusion

Audio-Technica ATH-AD1000These headphones are comfortable and guarantee an excellent high-frequency reproduction. In terms of sound signature and performance, the ATH-AD1000 nearly reach the quality of the AKG 702. The problem is they are a bit more expensive than the AKG while having some disadvantages, like the non-detachable cable. As a consequence, even if there is no reason to advise against these headphones, there is also no reason to recommend them.

Advantages:

  • Comfortable and light
  • Very good high-frequency reproduction
Drawbacks:
  • Irreplaceable cable and no exchangeable ear cups
  • Not as good as the K702 but more expensive?
  • No accessories
  • Too expensive compared with similar products

Audio-Technica review: ATH-ANC3

Audio Technica ATH-ANC3

Audio Technica ATH-ANC3

For travelers who want to listen to their favorite music without bothering others or being bothered, using an ordinary pair of headphones doesn’t always give you total isolation. So then came along in-ear headphones (that go directly into the ear canal and therefore isolate the listener). Then, after that, noise-canceling headphones, featuring electronic circuitry that reduced extraneous noise, appeared on the scene. Audio Technica now offers headphones with both these features, but is it enough to provide total isolation?

I personally bought them and use them everywhere now, from plane to the street. It’s such a comfort to listen to music in the silence! 🙂
