Audio Technica ATH-W1000X Headphone

The Audio Technica ATH-W1000X Grandioso are full-size audiophile sealed headphones with precise musical detail and that wondrously deep instrumental soundstage space we've come to expect from high-end AT designs. An even-keeled rhythmic pace caters to knowledgeable ears seeking resolution and definition along with comfortable listening privacy. Beautiful and unique ATH-W1000X earcup housings are real Black Cherry virgin wood often used in piano construction for graceful sound and looks.

Occupying a choice spot in the high-end sealed headphone panoply, the Audio Technica ATH-W1000X Grandioso are lovely audiophile-oriented cans with precise musical detail and that deep sense of instrumental soundstage space we've come to expect from top AT designs. These large circumaural headphones have a richly present bass that is expertly balanced with clear vocal mids and detailed highs without audible edginess. A weakness of some less expensive Audio Technica models is perhaps a lack of musical body and acoustic fullness, but these issues are not heard in the ATH-W1000X. There does, however, exist a hint of resonance in the upper bass and low mids bringing a vague honkiness to certain recordings, most noticeably with tracks that are dense with low frequencies and can be prone to muddiness; some extensive ‘burn-in’ time may help clarify that nit-pick. Nevertheless, the ATH-W1000X maintain an engrossing level of definition and musical separation, even if slightly lacking an organically "natural" tone — frankly, always a difficult feat for any sealed-back headphone. The beauteous ATH-W1000X housings are cut from real Black Cherry virgin wood often used in piano construction for distinct sound and graceful looks.

The Audio Technica ATH-W1000X circumaural full-size earcups contain large 53mm aperture drivers featuring specially built, proprietary 2-part magnetic circuits that produce extremely high speed magnetic streams for significantly improved sound quality and quick-response dynamic extension. Traditional Audio-Technica '3-D' wing supports on the headband are well-suited for larger noggins. The ATH-W1000X's headphone cord extends about 9.5ft and terminates to a high-quality 1/4" [6.3 mm] gold-plated stereo plug; cord braid is a high elastic Elastomer sheathing and PC-OCC conductor cabling. Very nifty wood inlay on 1/4" plug adds yet another highly distinctive cosmetic touch.
