    ATH-W5000 Audiophile Closed-back Dynamic Wooden Headphones 5 5 2 2
    Lucious . . . I am a fan of music that requires accurate reproduction of the mid-range and the ATH-W5000 does this very, very well. If you are not looking for DEEP BASS then these phones deserve a listen. I have had them for almost sixty days now and they are really breaking in nicely. June 19, 2012
    Creme De La Creme The W5000's are the best headphones I've owned or listened to, and I've been around the block when it comes to headphones. I could honestly writes pages about these but I'll attempt to keep it brief. These headphones have a very specific purpose in the broad range of things. There are head phones for travel, for working out, for walking to the market, and for studio use. The W5000's are none of those. These headphones excel and should be applied to a very few specific purposes only, mainly as headphones for one to just relax and enjoy music with. These full sized headphone's sound signature excels with female vocals, acoustic guitars, and string and brass instruments. If you enjoy these kind of musics, or any music with pronounced mid ranges and trebles- you're in for a treat. If you're looking for a greater bass extension or a headphone that's better suited for a broader range of music I suggest you check out Audio Technica's AT-W1000X. Despite being low impedance headphones a headphone amp is recommended for these to really give the music a full body. My biggest recommendation is to keep them in their case or on a headphone stand (mine are on the Audio Technica AT-HPS500) until you're ready to use them to keep these beautiful headphones safe. The included case is very high quality and borderline luxurious. If you're serious about music like Audio Technica is than these may be the headphones for you. October 20, 2011

    Answer: 
    There is no active noise canceling however the passive with music on is rather good, matter of fact someone was just now using a drill and I didn't hear it till my music went into a silent period. Bass is neutral and extends well with great detail.

    Answer: 
    The ATH-W5000 are designed to be acoustically balanced between bass, midrange, and treble. They are not an active noise-cancelling headphone.Generally speaking, the most bass for any Audio-Technica headphone can be found in the A-T Solid Bass headphone line.

    Thanks!
