just thought I'd chime in... I own an ATH-W100 and an "all-out" META42 (AD8620/EL2009s/Black Gates). I'd like to quickly share my three month experience with them.

I started off by upgrading from HD590s to my current W100s. I was amazed at how smooth and musical the W100s sounded, especially w/ (female) vocals and acoustic guitar. I bought them used, but continued to break them in w/ very loud, aggressive muisc for a few weeks. This helped in the bass dept. I was a little displeased with complex tracks (orchestras for example). This all changed when I swapped out my META42's 2x2 EL2001 buffers with EL2009s... it was a complete metamorphosis. Everything improved across the board, detail, bass, treble. Complex tracks are handled with much more seperation and clarity. I guess what I learned was that the W100s had much greater potential than my first listen and that they love EL2009s.

I am so happy that people are discovering and enjoying their Audio Technicas, in the same way that I have. I'll be one of those first in line for a W1000...

(I'm almost done building a KG dynamic... I'll post how it compares to my META42 w/ the W100s soon.)

Wow, that sure makes me want to buy some AT cans, especially since I'll be receiving my JMT max-out META42 in a few weeks. I am looking forward to a more detailed report I take it you prefer these to your 580's?

HI: You mentioned the 580s. Here is my opinion on that. Think of the 580s as a bunch of cows out in the paster eating grass nothing really happing. Now think of the ATH-A100ti as a magnificent race horse on the starting line and you are on it and off you go at full speed passing all the other horses deregulating with excitement to be way ahead of the other horses to the finish line. Full of life ,excitement,happing, the winner by a mile. Alive with everything about you.
lol, niiice analogy. well by the looks of it now, team AT here i come .

please forgive me for being crass - but since all the links i come with are in japanese, what did you pay US for them? it's just that i've heard so much talk about them, wooden enclosures and all.

wallijonn, which headphone are you talking about? if you are talking about the A100Ti or the A1000, they aren't made of wood and are titanium. no set price on the A1000 because they haven't been released yet, but i think the targeted price is around $300. the A100Ti can be had for $280 from audiocubes. also, the pages you get linked to can be translated at altavista, so it isn't really a problem.

They can be had for roughly $280 (+ $18 shipping to the US) via audiocubes.com. And dammit, LTUCCI, you've pushed me dangerously close to buying these!

post #13 of 124
thanks for the audiocube link. i had seen pictures of the w100 (wood 100?) and didn't make the Ti connection. man those things are pretty. also saw the a9x's - do they only come in silver?

LTUCCI1924,
I told you that you will love the A100Ti. Great sounding cans with elegant fits and finish. Do you like the super soft earpads? I hope you do. Please, write more when you can. Try the A100ti out of your portable Headphone out, and you will be very impressed with their efficiency. Go team A100Ti

Purk

P.S.
Be very careful about scratch.....

Congrats Lou! Glad you finally got them and they're living up to your expectations. Now I wonder how they compare to the A900?
