whats the best ath headphones in your opinion??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

i was looking to buy some headphones and read ath m50 is best. Then i read the A900x is better than the m50. Then i read its better to get ad1000 or ad2000 rather than the A900x. So what is actually the best. Please break it down.

There is no best. They are like colours, everybody can like another one . If you ask which one is flagship then i will say for hifi listening with open back it is ad2000x.

In my opinion? ATH-W5000 are my favorite. But like Gonomon said there are a lot of shades of difference - AT makes *a lot* of products and they don't all follow a single linear progression from "good" to "great" (like Grado or Koss does). It really depends on what you like - AT probably has a headphone for every taste if you're willing to look for it (and live somewhere that you can get most/all of their product catalog). Personally I like the coloration on their W series, and the W5000 best align with my tonal balance preferences (bright/airy/spacious/etc). Doesn't mean I dislike other ATHs - I like most of the ones I've heard over the years, but they can be very different. For example ESW9 are, imho, a very good sounding headphone but they're very different from W5000 - they're dark, bassy, somewhat narrow, etc.
