i owned the w1000x for a while now - it has that "romantic" mids - smooth - a bit recessed but brings out the beauty in vocal songs. It's quite bass shy - you don't get much short pulsating bass , however that doesn't meant it does not has bass. the quality of the bass has good depth and due to the wooden cups , the bass resonance is very natural. treble is pretty detailed but not fatigue comparing to entry level headphone where they could be overly sharp for prolonged listening.
I find the w1000x performs more like an semi-closed rather than a fully closed. It has sound stage and imaging of a semi / open headphones.
I think the main reason people are getting the ATH wooden cups series are mostly due to the unique sound signature you are getting from the depth and musical imaging of those headphones.
you don't buy those for absolute clinical resolving tracks..
