I spotted these a few months ago, and being an audio technica fan, they caught my attention. these are the highest model in the 'T' lineup and are only available from Japan at the moment. I took the plunge -from audiocubes- cost about 110$ shipped- and 2 weeks later they are here!
these are very lighweight and feel plasticy but well made(normal audio technica). the headband is very wide but looks like an audio technica mostly. the cups are metal and plastic, the earpads soft leather-ish, like the type on a shure 840(a good thing). oval cups/pads encase my ears easily. comfortable.thick rubber cable.
the sound- no burn in- forward and aggressive highs and mid highs, slightly recessed mids. nice full mid bass, small tight low end thump.sound among its siblings is between an ath-a900 and atm-m50
even better comparison- its between a shure srh840 and an ultrasone hfi780- the forwardness/high end of the 780 with the low end of the srh840.
will do an ovvernite burn in and post more impressions
