Audio Technica ATH-A900X vs Audio Technica ATH-W1000x?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am looking to upgrade from my ATH A900X and I don't know where to turn. If anyone wants to recommend a non-Audio Technica headphone that's perfectly fine too, but I'm just comfortable with ADT. Can anyone tell me if the ATH-W1000x is good enough (better than the A900X) to justify a purchase?

 

Anyone heard both?

 

 

Or what about the ATH-W5000? Any thoughts? 

 

Thanks. I am a bit of a noob when it comes to this stuff but I love the sound I'm getting from my A900X's

 

:P

I would look at other cans in the $200 to $300 price category.

 

You have a very nice set of headphones but going up to the $800 and higher price bracket won't necesarily give you what you want ....especially if you're a noob as you say.

I've been thinking of replacing my A900X with the W1000X.

What sources are you plugging the headphone into?

Just a Fiio E6... Maybe I am looking for a good DAC/amp combo as well?

Honestly I owned the A900x and I still own my W1000x

 

if you like the A900x the W1000x is a NICE easy upgrade. The W5000 I've not heard , but grab your self a W1000x and enjoy :3

 

they don't need a lot of power so the E6 should be more than enough!
