Upgrade Audio Technica AD700 to A900X?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have owned the Audio Technica ATH-AD700 (open air) cans for a few years now and have been very satisfied. They have a wide stage with great mids and sound crisp and clear overall. Recently I cam across a good deal for the newer A900X closed headphones.

 

Will the A900X be a substantial upgrade over the AD700? Is it worth the upgrade? Thanks for the comments/suggestions.

I can't contribute to your decision as I have not auditioned A900X in depth (only a brief listen during a meet), but just as a heads up FYI: A900X is being sold for $130 right now:

Yes, this is why I am contemplating the purchase.

The A900x has good bass, great mids, nonsibilant sparky treble, a decent soundstage for a closed phone and is airy. Bass can get boomy on badly recorded music. They also are very detailed and do scale some with better equipment. The A900X's are great headphones.  You could also consider the AD900X from Amazon Japan if you want open headphones as it is $138.00 right now with $30 for shipping through Tenso.
