I wanted to try AT and get a small taste of the house sound.
These are open back with huge stage, apparently alot of gamers use for excellent positional presentation. Grados were my first really open headphones and they’ve gotten most of my money so I wanted fresh new sound.
Comfy to use even though your basically putting trash can size cups over your ear. Perfect amount of bass for me, I thought it might be light.
Balanced huge sound with slightly elevated bass.
I’m now a fan and want to hear a closed back AT, no bank breakers prices, just the lowest price closed versions that sound good.
For the money I spent I got a very nice sounding set. Which units tick your boxes folks?
Tell me what closed set hits the mark that mark being $0 - $150ish...the first good solid one.
I love trying new good sounding gear!
You could start with the similarly named closed back ATH-A550Z, which are similarly shaped and priced but do have a different sound signature of course, being a closed back, but a pleasant one to my ears.
