Audio-Technica ATH-A900 Headphones Reviews

My first "real" headphones.

Posted

Pros: Extremely comfortable, great sound, unique style.

Cons: Not very portable.

The A900s are my first set of headphones that I spent more than $20 on, so I don't really have much to compare them to.  They sound great and are very comfortable.  it's like wearing a big pillow of sound on your head.  I've worn them almost every day for the last 3 and a half years and the show no signs of wear or damage (aside from the little scuff on the side from dropping them on a concrete floor).   Some people may not like the huge ear cups, and strange looking head band design, but I love it.  Not only does it make them extremely comfortable, but it makes them stand out when compared to other headphone designs.  If you like to take the road less traveled, these are the...

Pros: great sound

Also another owner here for whom the ATH-A900 is the first pair of good headphones.   They definitely stand out with their styling and massive aluminium cups. I just dig circumaural headphones. They're just so much more comfortable that on-ears.   Love the sound which works well for my taste in music (electronic/rock) and for use on PC watching movies, etc. The bass is good, but their is something lacking in the midrange. Nothing a EQ change won't sort out. I have run these through a C&C XO amp fed from ipod line-out with no EQ change on the ipod and they sound good. They can take a good whack of power (if you're into going deaf) without distorting in any way....
