      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-AD700X Audiophile Open-air Headphones:

      Let me start out by saying I love these headphones. Using these plugged into an NI Traktor S2 with grant you very rich audio quality, and the open ear design is perfect for what I need the headset to do. It also keeps up in the gaming side of things, providing great 3d accuracy (at least as far as it can with a stereo setup). The complaints that are present are purely with the flashy design that do more harm than good.

      First complaint, is the lack of a coiled wire. Although this seems like more of a luxury, I've seen a buddies pair of lower-end ATs with a coiled wire, and it really puzzles me why they would include it on a lower-end pair and not a higher end pair.

      Second, is what's replacing the basic headphone "headband". I don't really know what to call them other than "head mounts", so for the sake of this review, that's what I'm talking about when I say head mounts. These things move organically to the shape of your head, rotating in 2 axis to fit a roughly average-sized head. They are not adjustable, and they seem very, very fragile. Although I haven't broken them, they seem to have a weak point where I've been waiting for them to break at. Every time the wire gets caught under the wheels of my office chair (remember: not coiled) and I trip over it nearly every time I attempt to leave the room, launching the headset across the room. Surprisingly, the head mounts haven't broken yet, but every time it falls I cringe. By now I should just have faith in the design, but it really does not seem like it will stand up to too many more trips over wires.

      I'd love to see a sort of stress test on those head mounts to put my mind at peace about them, but they really look weak. Although I love the sound, I can't trust them for on-the-road use, and because of that I don't think my next pair of headphones will be ATs.

        • Q:

          Would it be worth buying a DAC and AMP for these headphones?

          If so, what?

          • A:

            With any current-model Audio-Technica headphones, it is not a requirement to use/purchase a headphone amplifier to be used in addition to your playback device. However, if you prefer the sound of a dedicated headphone amplifier, that shouldn’t be a problem either.

            Overall, it is your call to use (or not to use) a headphone amplifier. It depends on what you prefer.

            Since Audio-Technica does not manufacture any headphone amplifiers for United States markets, if you would like any further recommendations, you would need to ask a HiFi dealer that sells headphone amplifiers.

            Thanks!
