Audio-Technica Announces Revised ART Monitor Series, New Open Headphones - Page 8

post #106 of 113

As far as I understand TAD series use a totally different driver.

They are basically open versions of ATH-Txxx headphones.

I had the closed ear ath-t500, and thought they were a great deal for 100$

I'm interested in the open ear tad500 for sure.

 

Also need a comparison of the a900 and a900x. the a900 being one one my favorites cans ever

Thank you very much spartan86 biggrin.gif

Can someone post update on a900x?

I am really interested in mid-section. How do they sound with vocals (especially female)?

The thing is that I want closed headphones from AT. I have experience only with AD series?

Do a900x have the same sweet (coloured?) vocals as ad700/ad900?

P.S. I can not decide between a900x and a500x/tad500 combo confused_face(1).gif

 

Update:

I've got some info from Japan and a500x seems to be very plasticky with a quite hollow sound.

I'll try to listen to some music with some female vocals. To be honest, I might end up selling these since I am really tempted to try some open headphones. I haven't tried any high end ones yet

I'll be buying Brainwavz HM5 most likely. 

These are getting a lot of positive reviews.

Thanks anyway ;)

That's about right though isn't it? If you convert the Japanese price to USD, it's ~$90. Still, I don't think I would buy from that particular seller...
