ATH-OX7AMP SonicFuelâ„¢ Premium On-ear Headphones with Built-in Amplifier
Terrible build quality
The sound is great but the build quality especially considering the price is apalling:
The head-band snapped after two months of normal-to-careful use. The plastic is hard and the spot right next to where the soft padding starts is really the weak spot. After it breaks you can easily see why it breaks there: the metal support ends right there so when you take off the headphones that place gets most of the stress.
Also for the price I would expect the amp to feature auto-off which it doesn't. If you leave them turned on the battery will be empty in the morning.

These headphones are amazing! The built in amp is what really make them stand out. Whether I'm listening to music or watching a movie on my iPad these cans deliver!

These are a great pair of headphones. I've had mine for a few months now and I love them. The integrated amp is what makes these cans really shine. I would consider the sound with the amp off to be slightly above average - not bad by any means. They definitely produce better sound than many other headphones out there. But the sound produced with the amp is superb! The only slight down side to these would be the build quality. Not bad, just average. I assume Audio Technica tried to keep the price of these headphones lower by not going with top notch building material. In my opinion, it's a worthwhile trade off.
