Oh dear, more ATs I'm going to have to go and try. They look like mid-range, open or semi-open-backed supra-aurals.

According to the Babelfish translation of this page, they are supposed to be open, if I'm understanding it correctly. I'm quite curious as to where they're supposed to stand in AT's product lineup. At JPY6980, they would appear to be cheaper than the ES7s.

They look like open ES7s. I wish that AT would release some limited woodies like they did in olden times. I feel like I missed the boat on the W11JPN, etc.

wow I just bought a pair of ES7 and now I'm wishing I hadn't as I love open versus closed phones...

I will be eagerly waiting reviews of these as I love my AD700 phones.
