Pros: Excellent build quality, comfortable, airy soundstage, mid colouration beautiful for female vocals
Cons: Bass still not linear, may lack transparency for some
The below review is a summary of a full comparison of the AD1000X to the AD900X and Sony MA900 found here:
I also made a Youtube review of the AD1000X. If you like the video check out my channel for more reviews! :)
The AD1000X has fantastic build quality with a magensium alloy frame. The 3D wing design is comfortable, though it does not work for everyone's head. The AD1000X features angled velour earpads that are quite comfortable. The angle helps the headphones conform to the shape of the skull. The AD1000X has a double entry cable unlike the AD900X. I actually prefer single entry cables but from a balanced channel design standpoint I suppose this is a good thing.
