Don't like the look of the red but the black one looks really sweet, I think the logo looks so much nicer in black + silver.

I'll wait for the ATH-WS99x to come out in 2014

I know right! If the ws99 is this good! They gotta make the red version for them, it looks sick.

I hope that Audio-Technica will create a really cool masterpiece. In fact, I admire JVC creatures (the JVC HA-SZ1000 and the JVC HA-SZ2000), but they are too HUGE for me.

So next year there comes another ws99..? it's just out and a new one is coming,really want one and think i will also wait cause most of the time they get better......d^_^b

Only was an assumption on my part, but seeing as to how AT operates it wouldn't be a surprise. With the WS55x at around only $99 USD and no scheduled date for US release, who knows when the 99x will come out. What does the X stand for anyway? Easy enough for me to wait and see since i have the WS99 already..

X is a slight improvement on an old series for whatever reason. On the solid bass series it really looks to be an improvement on the older stuff lower part of the line up that was not so great. So, they fixed up the CKS 55 and 77 and the WS lower level. I maintain there will be no 99X. The line up is set now and won't be tweaked but replaced. The next year replacement should be the WS100 or WS1000 or something like that. Probably done till a whole new line of Solid Bass. I just hope they don't wait years like they have done in the past like the ES7 released in fall of 2005 was not replaced till the ES700 in fall of 2012.

 

Also since no one posted it...

...the red 33X which looks quite nice, Though maybe a bit too red. Black pads would have been nice to trim them out.

We'll see about that. There never was a WS33 to improve on anyway, so that's new. The whole AD series recently got the X treatment as well. There always seems to be room for improvement.

post #11 of 38

Jeez the red ws33 looks very cheap,what an ugly red color,they should have used the old deep wine red from the ws55

post #12 of 38

the specs dont look to good for these I dont think they will be better than the ws99, so just wait it out for the new flagship solid bass from ath

post #13 of 38
They're only like $100, so they shouldn't be better than the $200 WS99.
post #14 of 38

Anyone have these yet and can tell us what they're like?
