Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (12 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "ATH-AD700!"
Sound: Very wide frequency range - about as wide as my Pioneer HDJ-1000 - the ATH-AT700 reaches a very low bass register - the bass is audible, but does not rumble (this is how I EQ for progressive and tribal tech) - the upper midrange is pronounced without being excessive - the treble reaches high and adds sparkle without sibilance (I listen at very low volumes) - the open-back design makes it sound like I'm in the middle of a huge arena - vs. my Pioneers, which make me feel like I'm at a rave or a concert venue exactly the size of my head - I'm using these headphones with a Yamaha home theater receiver, Aiwa bookshelf stereo system, and iPod Touch with lossless tracks - as it turns out, only when combined with CDs played through the Aiwa (which has been going strong for 10 years) do I find the bass tones to be actually missing (accounted for by the limited range of the Aiwa, per the manual) - on my iPod, I keep the volume at the lowest setting - on a sound test iPod App, I was able to hear bass as low as 55Hz, and with max vol., I could feel bass as low as 13Hz Feature: I was looking for something to contrast with my Pioneer DJ headphones (rockin for 7.5 years!) which I love. The Audio-Techinica ATH-AD700 gives me exactly what I was looking for; the open design gives a wide open sound for a more relaxing listening experience. The Pioneers emphasize a mid-midrange, while the ATs emphasize a hi-midrange. The way I use these 2 sets of hps, both cover all ranges of music with some tasteful EQing. Also, the angled speakers of the AT seem to add to the spatial effect. To me, the sound is like flawless. The physical design is comfortable, but not totally effcient for size adjustment; the hps fit me comfortably, but not securely, and they look funny. Fortunately, I don't wear these in public, and the Pioneers fill my DJing needs. Ease of Use: Just plug and play to use these things; however, I took off a piont because it took a little effort to learn AD700 posture - basically, sit up straight all the time to keep them from sliding off. Quality: Like the rest of my guitar, bass, DJ, home audio, and home theater gear, these headphones are not a toy. If you are rough with this stuff, it will break. The hps are light and delicate, but close inspection of joints, pivots, and internals shows that these AD700s are crafted well. Value: I took off a few points because there just doesn't seem to be any recognized standard price for these things. I paid $89.95, which is worth it for a fine consumer-grade audiophile-style product like these, particularly if they are in new/mint condition. However, I opted for an "open-box" discounted unit, but the box was smashed up and the headphones are in purely "used" condition - chipped paint, scrapes, someone else's hair, kinked cable. For a used product, I paid too much; they go for $79 on Amazon (brand new), $159 at the Audio Techinca website, and $169 at Best Buy. Madness! I have to still contact zZounds about the yuckie condition of these awesome headphones. Keep in mind, my Pioneer HDJ-1000s are in perfect condition, and I've been DJing small parties with them for 7.5 years. Manufacturer Support: Never dealth with them, but the t-shirts they sell at the website look cool. The Wow Factor: The crazy huge sound stage makes these the ultimate top choice for an open-bach headphone set for me. (I have awesome DJ headphones; all I need now are a Sony XB model to cover all my needs/moods.) I am not an audiophile; I am a lifelong audio enthusiast. I will pay anywhere between $0 and $30 for a replacement cable (not $3k), but I know how to twisty some knobbies to get the sounds I want. Overall: For my current desires, the AD700s are a necessity in my gear collection. If they were incapacitated, I would consider models from Sony, Sennheiser, Pioneer, and Audio-Technica (as I did when first shopping for these), but this particular model stands on the top of the pile for now.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Great Audio Technica ATH-AD700 Headphones"
Sound: The Audio Technica ATH-AD700 headphones are as good as others that are double the price. Some say bass is lacking but I find it to be accurate. If it is not on the recording there is no color added to create thump. I am very happy with these and would only state that after break in I found some of the sound stage had diminished. The problem was the smashed down with use ear cups. A quick addition of padding to create distance between the ear and driver in the head set fixed this promptly. The sound stage make these fun to listen to. Feature: Headphones, These are very nice to listen to. They are light and almost unnoticeable on your head. Ease of Use: After a slight modification (stuffing more padding behind the ear cup on both sides to return the correct sound stage all is perfect again. Quality: Only a non-crushing ear cup would improve the product. Value: For the money these are every bit as good as much more expensive cans. Manufacturer Support: Have not deal with Audio Technica. The Wow Factor: Only the color detail could be better these things are Black and gold frame with PURPLE screens on the ear piece. However, they are something special so why not make them look noticeable ? The colors make you think hummm those are kind of odd but the sound quality makes you say ahhh these are nice. They do make music fun to listen to and really enjoyable. Overall: I will enjoy these until they quit working. (and I am trying to do my best to wear them out) If they quit working I would replace them with the same model if available.
