Audio-technica AIR Dynamic Headphones Ath-ad900x

Fantastic Entry-Level Headphones with Clear, Engaging, and Natural Sound

manbear

Pros: Fun and aggressive but not harsh presentation, bass impact, natural mids, unique and large soundstage

Cons: Grainy and not the most resolving

Background and listening experience: I bought these as a complementary headphone for my ZMF Vibros. I wanted something open and I've been curious about Audio Technica for a while. In the past, I've owned the MDR-V6, DT-990 Pro, Q701, and HE-400. Listening was done straight off my laptop as well as through my Concero to Ember desktop setup.  Overall: I'm very pleased with these headphones...

Fostex TH 900

Pros: U-shaped signature is good for techno, mids are great, comfort, and plenty of reasonably tight bass, soundstage width is tremendous

Cons: Price, really hard to pair properly, the closed-back design holds them back, imaging is only okay, the far ends of the soudnstage are a bit distorted

T1, a very competative TOTL offering

Audio-Technica ATH-M50S

“(Disclaimer: This review was written while considering the very low price-point of the M50, and what you can get for that amount of money. It does not mean the M50 can go up against the high-end headphones that cost several hundred to thousands of dollars. My main headphones are high-end headphones, and the M50 is only used while I'm doing tracking or traveling. I wouldn't use it as my everyday...” --Lunatique

Sennheiser HD 800 Headphones

“ REVIEW: Sennheiser HD 800Overview Reviewing a statement product is tough – especially one that was as highly anticipated as the HD800. There is already a huge buzz on head-fi about them, and many have already declared them the best dynamic headphone on the market. But most of these proclamations have been from owners, One potential difference between my listening to the HD800 and other...” --Skylab

Sennheiser HD-598

“The Sennheiser HD-598 Open-Backed Headphone is a great value for how it's priced. Found mine used with only two hours use, and I must say that these babies are a joy to listed to for any most any genre of music.   Sound The sound of the 598 is warm and detailed, with light emphasis on the low mids and upper bass. I find it quite refreshing, especially after my last phones, the ATH-M50s...” --CallMeFishmael

Sennheiser HD 600

“The Sennheiser HD600 is an open dynamic circumaural head-phone which Sennheiser market for audiophiles, and also state as ideal for studio monitoring.     Pre-amble (about me at time of writing) I'm a 44 year old music lover.  I don't say audiophile - just love my music.  Over the last couple of years, I have slowly changed from cheaper listening set-ups to my current...” --Brooko

Beyerdynamic Tesla T1

“This is not going to be as thorough or long as my normal reviews for now - but I wanted to get something in place.  I have always liked Beyer headphones, but they all had some very defining character or flavor - even the most neutral, the DT880/600, was a little hot in the treble and a little light in the bass, IMO.   Well, the T1 changes all that.  While maybe just a touch lush, it is...” --Skylab

Superlux HD-668 B

“ As the saying in the title goes, this has never been truer than for these headphones. Thankfully, Superlux sells sound quality, not an overhyped brand name. Can you really get great sound for $40? Oh yes, and it's right here.   I was recommended these headphones by a fellow forum member and after a day or two of investigation I decided I really liked what I read about them and...” --WrxSTI
