    ATH-DN1000USB (Google it) w/built-in DAC and Trigence semiconductor https://www.trigence.com/ Playback up to 24bit 192kHz. I'm not well versed with tech so again, kindly check the specs here: https://www.audio-technica.co.jp/smt/atj/show_model.php?modelId=2665) I bought this new from e-earphone.jp on Feb 2017. Most of the time kept in its original box.

    These underrated gems were not that known outside of Japan so I'll share my listening impressions (probably the first and only one on headfi) :
    The ATH-DN1000USB is definitely a fresh deviation from the ATH house sound without being too different. Bass is a good trait of it; its warm but not overly done. Compared with the bass on HD650, it is more textured, tighter and extends slightly deeper albeit having lesser body. Overall sound is not laid back and has decent PRAT, more so than its other closed back cousins. It shares a close resemblance of the driving energy, focus and forwardness of the thicker-sounding HD660S. Imagine a closed back HD650 with an Audio Technica twist to it; crispy, clear treble, mids not that warm like the Senns but more airy and detailed with bigger soundstage. In my opinion, ATH-1000USB remedies the limitations as found in both brands - gone is the Sennheiser veil and lacking bass of Audio Technicas. Its internal DAC is powerful (adequate at 30% volume) and sounds very well on your laptop through only a removable USB cable.
