Are the Audio Technica RE70 (ATH-RE70) any good?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

Normally I am a search and google hound, but these headphones don't seem to have many reviews up :/  I'm looking to buy a good set of "portable" headphones for office use...portable size because I don't want a huge headphone on my head nor do I want to completely isolate myself from my environment :)

I was about to get the JVC flats when I noticed that these can be had for ~$35 ....is this a better buy considering the original price was almost 3x that?

Thanks in advance!

Who cares, right? rolleyes.gif Talkin' pennies here for bottom of the barrel cans.

I'll be back when I decide to get something worthwhile and truly in need of guidance.

I'm getting the RE70s smily_headphones1.gif

Pardon the bumping of an ancient thread, but I am Interested in these myself. Mostly just because I love the way they look. Can't find any meaningful reviews.

Other than they're excessively bright, mid recessed, and bloaty bass, don't know.

I'm trying the newer model, the ath-re700, I'll post my impressions on those, and when the re700s become localized, you can get them too, once they lower the pricing.

I might get a pair anyway, just love the way they look. Seems like a good starting point for heavy modding.

Just ordered a pair. Hard to beat for $20. We'll see what they sound like with a pair of Portapro drivers in them. Should make for a fun weekend project.

Compare them please! This will make me ecstatic as the ath-re700s will arrive at my home this week. :)

 

My ears are ready!

Care to post your impression of the RE700 ?
I like the looks of them and was quite interested in buying one :)
