Audio-Technica AD500x, ATH-AD700x, AD900x and A500x Headphones


Audio-Technica announced four audiophile headphones, designed to deliver extraordinary sound quality to satisfy the most discriminating listeners. The new ATH-AD900x, ATH-AD700x and ATH-AD500x are ideal for music lovers who enjoy the spacious quality of open-back headphones and combine involving sound with long-wearing comfort. The ATH-A500x offers superb sound and a comfortable fit for music lovers who prefer the sound isolation and performance of a closed-back design.

The ATH-AD900x, ATH-AD700x and ATH-AD500x all feature large 53 mm drivers that have been exclusively designed for the headphones, with high-power magnets and Audio-Technica’s copper-clad aluminum-wire (CCAW) voice coil technology for superior audio reproduction and a wide frequency response from 5 Hz up to 35,000 Hz. All the headphones employ premium quality components with progressively finer levels of refinement; all offer an immersive listening experience with clear, natural vocal and instrumental reproduction, a smooth tonal balance, precise imaging and superlative dynamic range.
The headphones offer a uniquely comfortable fit thanks to their generously cushioned ear pads, lightweight honeycomb aluminum casing and exclusive 3D Wing Support Housing, which adjusts itself perfectly to each wearer.

The new ATH-A500x closed-back headphones are designed to deliver audiophile-quality sound along with powerful, articulate bass, thanks to Audio-Technica’s exclusive Double Air Damping System, which employs a main air chamber that houses the driver plus an additional chamber that operates in conjunction with a specially shaped housing and port to control and focus the airflow produced by the driver and expand its bass output. The ATH-A500x’s performance and convenience features include powerful 53mm drivers, a 3D Wing Support Housing and comfortable, generously padded earpieces.

All models come with a 10-foot (3.0 m) Hi-OFC oxygen-free copper cord with a 1/8-inch (3.5 mm) stereo plug and a 1/4-inch (6.3 mm) stereo adapter.
