  • Overview

    The ATH-S700BT offers clear, full-bodied audio reproduction with Bluetooth® wireless operation. The headphones are equipped with a mic, and music and volume controls, allowing you to easily answer calls, adjust volume and handle playback (play, pause, fast-forward and rewind) of music and video on compatible smartphones and other portable devices. The headphones remember up to eight devices and automatically connect with the last paired device. A 1.2 m (3.9') smartphone cable with mic and controls is also included to provide a standard wired connection that can be used in areas where Bluetooth wireless use is prohibited or when battery power is low.

    The headphones feature 40 mm drivers for powerful sound and efficient signal transfer. The housings are designed with an acoustic chamber that’s separate from the electronics in order to maximize driver performance. And the audio is given an additional boost from the high-quality, built-in headphone amplifier.

    The ATH-S700BT is equipped with an internal lithium polymer rechargeable battery that provides six hours of continuous use and up to 200 hours in standby mode. A 1.0 m (3.3') USB charging cable is included.

      Everything is fine, but the real problem is the cord. It's weak and the durability really needs some enforcement. The length of the cord is fine because you won't be using it other than music on your phone/PC, unless you're doing actual Studio works.

            It is exactly what I was looking for to pair with TV. You can turn off TV audio completely and still turn up the headphones making this perfect where I live. They are super comfortable for hours of movie time.

                Seriously great headphones. They fit comfortably and are really lightweight and have really nice sound. Comparing these to my brother's m50x's, the sound quality is just a scoche under the m50, and that may be strictly because of blue tooth. Comfort wise between the two, they are very similar around the ears. I actually prefer these cans because of the weight. If I make any jerky movements with the m50s they want to roll off of my head. With these, they are rock steady no matter what I do.

                Alot of people think the construction looks cheesy or is built poorly, but I'm not under that supposition. I think they look pretty decent and if you take proper care of them, should last a while.

                Only downsides I can see is the button can be a little stiff and tricky to get right, and the battery life lives up to its claims of six hours. Wish it would last a little longer

                  Just one con, i had them in a backpack for not even a day, and the button got a little stiff :/
                  it still works, but I just have to push the button a little harder when i am trying to connect or something.

                      I asked prior to purchase if they can be used while charging and was told no. This info is not entirely correct. They cannot be used while charing via the Bluetooth function but if you plug the in-line audio jack to your phone and headphones they can still be used. This is somewhat restricting but does allow you to still use them while charging.

                        I found my headphones. Premium audio, very comfortable. This in my opinion would be a brilliant purchase cost to value. My advice before you finalize on a logo driven unbalanced pair of headphones is to put on a pair of Audio Techs and experience them.

                            Great pair of headphones. Clear highs, crisp lows, everything you expect from a pair of Audio Technica's. The construction is a little plastic-y, but after a considerate amount of daily use (9 months or so) there have only been a few niggling issues (leather surrounding pad detached - easy fix, power button is stuck but still works). Definitely worth for the price.

                                Thanks for your inquiry. Here are some steps to help you pair with your iPod.

                                1. Begin with the headphones powered OFF. You may choose to not wear the headphones around your neck while pairing to see the indication lights above the Power Button.

                                2. Make certain the Bluetooth device you are going to connect the headphones to is not currently paired to any other Bluetooth devices.

                                3. Turn OFF Bluetooth on the Bluetooth device you are going to connect to.

                                4. Press and hold the Power Button on the headphones. While holding, you will hear the first beep (also see Blue indicator light), continue holding until the second beep (also see a flashing Blue and Red indicator light) which puts the headphones in pairing mode.

                                5. Turn on Bluetooth ON the device you are going to connect to.

                                6. Select the headphones which will appear in your Available Device List. (if applicable)

                                7. Both devices will connect and you will hear a beep in the headphones indicating the pair was successful.

                              What is the max amount of decibels that these headphones are capable of producing? How loud could they get?

                                Thanks for your inquiry. The ATH-S700BT's Output Sound Pressure Level is 100dB/mW. It will damage your ears if you listen to is more than 15 minutes. However this specification is only of wired mode. In Bluetooth mode, you are relying on the built in amplifier and the Bluetooth connection.

                              Why is there a HUGE latency when I connect my headphones to my iMac? It's so terrible (a full second) that I have to plug it in. When wired it works great, but bluetooth is sorely lacking.

                                Latency is inherent in any and all digital connections. Additionally, latency in any Bluetooth connection is high. If you are using headphones for low latency applications, a wired connection is recommended.
