Pros: Comfortable, smooth yet detailed, fairly neutral response
Cons: Relatively expensive
Bought my ATH-W1000X headphones used, with leather earcups and an improved cable. Using a Linn Mimik CD Player and an older Woo WA-3 with Amperex (Holland) tubes, and getting what I consider exceptional sound for from dynamic drivers. I also use a Stax Sigma with a Stax SRT-1W amp/preamp, and the Audio Technica 'phones come reasonablyly close to the Sigmas through the Woo amp. I listen to classical and jazz both through speakers and headphones, and I'm quite please with both the sound and feel of the ATH-W1000X's.
