    ATH-WS70 Solid Bass Over-Ear Headphones 4.5 5 4 4
    Great look and durabilty but average sound. This is my first pair of AT headphones, and I must say I really dig the look and the external quality. Love the all black over the ear brushed metal look. Unfortunately, that's probably the best part about them. When I put them on the first thing I noticed was how tight they were! I even asked my 13 year old daughter to try them and she said the same thing. I went for a walk, and in about 20 minutes in I started to get a headache. Then, of course, I wanted to test the bass....I was very disappointed. The sound was very clear and loud, but the bass seemed liked average headphones. Another thing that bothered me was how short the cord was and how easily it got tangled up. I have had a pair of Beats By Dre, which is double the price, and I immediately wanted those instead. Bottom line: They are a pricey pair of average sounding headphones with a great look. October 19, 2012
    Great headphones The sound quality in mid, high and lows is incredible. The bass is powerful and clean. The only problem is that they can be uncomfortable after a few hours. Incredible quality for money. You are defiantly only paying for audio quality unlike certain other brands. May 18, 2012
    Phenomenal. After searching for a pair of headphones that not only looked nice, but sounded incredible as well, I stumbled upon Audio-Technica's site. It wasn't long before I came across these, and after reading a review (the only review about this particular pair, at the time), I decided to see how much they ran for. $149 isn't terrible in the least, as a decent pair of quality headphones in today's market will set you back $200+, easily. So, I bought these. Within seven days, I had my new metallic headphones, and ever since, I've loved them to death. There's some incredible bass in these, as well as a beautiful range capacity. The trebble and middle classes come in crystal clear, without any distortion. Durable, stylish, and audibly stunning, these headphones will please any audiophile. As a bonus, they pack up well, too. I highly recommend these. December 4, 2011
    great headphones! buy these headphones! they have amazing bass, especially for the price! better than my friends 200+ dollar beats by dre! plus the aluminum housing and metal parts make it very durable and its really hard to scratch them. and since they have a tight fit on your head when you wear them, they wont fall of when you head bang or look down.

    Answer: 
    No question about it: Audio Technica has the best sound quality in the business and the other audio company you are mentioning doesn't even compare to Audio Technica. Audio Technica is worth what you are going to pay.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question and for your interest in our Solid Bass Headphones. This is a difficult question to answer since everyone's taste for bass response is different. Here at Audio-Technica we typically strive for balanced audio, that is, in the Solid Bass headhpones you will probably find that while there is a solid, punchy bass response you will still be able to hear the nuances of the highs and mids. The Solid Bass product line is comprised of headphones that have a double air chamber system that natrually expands the bass without sacrificing the highs and mids. In my opinion, with the Beats you may find you get over hyped bass with mids and highs that underperform or are lacking.
