    The Cure For the Common Basshead Do not let the words on the sides of the cup fool you, these are in no way monitoring headphones. You will not get an entirely accurate representation of the music. What you will get is a experience of the highest quality and most bass impact you have ever experienced. Audio Technica's legendary ATH-M50's are great for all genres of music, but if you can't get enough of those lows then this is your logical next step. The build quality and aesthetics are top notch, as always. But what is remarkable about these headphones is that Audio Technica manages to have tidal waves of bass thrown at you without compromising any of the miss and highs. While other competitors who try to do this end up mudding everything up, this company has managed to keep the other frequencies clean while still delivering on endless amounts of bass. They're not the most comfortable headphones even once you've broken them in, not due to the tight fit but the way they sit on your ears. But they're terrific portables and really shine when paired with a small portable headphone amp. If other headphones have left you hungry for more bass look no further. However if you need a headphone that is solid on all genres of music, you may be more interested in something a little less bass biased like the ATH-M50's or the ATH-ESW9's if you have some money to spend.

    Wow! O_O Best pair headphones I've ever owned. Definitely more than you bargained for as a slightly above average listener. Bass is awesome, crisp clear mids and highs. Good stuff AT. June 24, 2014
    Great headphones! I'm the envy of all my friends! Nearly a year ago, I was looking for headphones to replace my old junkers. I came to audio-technica on a friends advice, and was a little more than skeptical. I went out on a limb and bought these headphones and to this day, I do not regret it. Even after a year of extensive use, these headphones sound like they're fresh out of the box. Anything, from a Mozart Sonata, to the heaviest rock and metal, and even the bassiest electronic(dubstep or otherwise) sounds clear and crisp. Every range in every song is clearly defined, and these headphones never distort a higher register to compensate for a heavier bass line. Parts you've never heard in songs will break through and complete your entire listening experience. Absolutely GREAT headphones. I give these a massive 2 thumbs up! September 12, 2013
    CAN YOU MAKE THESE SO YOU CAN WEAR THEM WITHOUT PAIN? These cans have huge bass and seem made to be virtually indestructible. I have a low end hearing loss. I often have trouble EQ-ing to compensate for it. These headphones solve that problem. if only I didn't actually need to wear them on my head. They feel bulky, heavy and tight compared to the m50's. The cups are too small to be truly around the ear, so even adding padding won't make these comfortable for long. I added the padding from the most comfortable ear cushions I've ever had. It keeps me from ripping the headphones off within five minutes, but before an hour is up, I'm in pain. They do Isolate sound well, partially because they fit like a vice (leaving them to stretch out over a box 3" wider than my head and other manipulation of the band has not helped.). The most comfortable position for my ears and head hurts my jaw. And I am someone who can wear osh kosh hats. Style wise these are not mobile headphones, but the cords are too short for use with anything that is not attached to you. I can't maneuver around my work area, nor get far enough away from my TV. They are kind of a miracle, too big, too small, too bulky, lightweight, yet feel too heavy. They come with both a straight and coiled cable, but both too short and no coupler supplied. I'm going to have to return these. Probably for the less expensive and infinitely more comfortable m50's. I'll need run every sound producing device I own to run through an equalizer but these things are too uncomfortable. May 3, 2013
    An Amazing Headphone These headphones are amazing. I know quite a bit about sound quality and about headphones, and these really are nice headphones. They may not be the best headphones ever, but in my opinion, Audio Technica is the best provider I have ever found for headphones. The only problem is this headphones comfort, but I solved that with a simple modification. I made the mod in the beginning, so I don't really have an opinion on comfort. All I did was take a little strip of memory foam, a thin strip, took off the headphone casing or earpad, and slid it underneath and just put the casing back on. Now i can wear the headphones for literally hours at a time. I'm not necessarily a bass head, but I like a good amount of bass. I mean, who doesn't? I listen to my music around one fourth of the max volume, and that's PLENTY of bass for me. It has a nice strong driver that really lets you know it's there, without giving out the mids or the trebles. I feel like this is great for all around kinds of music. I haven't found anything that doesn't give that Studio sound out of the headphone. It has a strong sound quality and one of the strongest of mobile headphones I have ever used. These headphones aren't really something you'd be wearing a lot around places you need to move around. I have a moderate sized head, not all that big, not all that small, but when I put these around my neck when I need to talk to somebody for a certain amount of time (maybe a half an hour or so), I get a little nauseous. Now, I can just take them off and I'll feel better, or put them back on my head, but sometimes it can bother me. Types of music that I will listen to is Jazz, Electro, Rock, Rap, and all around other kinds of music. It all seems amazing on these headphones. I recommend these headphones to somebody who loves to listen to music. These also are great for gaming. The sounds on shooters are amazing, the crispness of the sound of the bullet just really puts you in the game, or just a simple old fashioned game of Super Mario World will really put you in the game. February 17, 2013
    Brilliant headphones These headphones.... WOW! I've tried all types of headphones and none of them had what I wanted, then I bought these in high hopes and boy do they please, the bass is amazing, the mids and highs are clear and accurate, and no matter what you do they will not distort, stretch out the tempo and slow down the kick, and they will hold the notes perfectly, vocals do not let down they are exactly how they sound on my home theater system. So far they are comfortable considering other complains with stock pads, although i have a narrow head so clamping isn't a problem, but my ears do touch the drivers and can get a little irritating after a couple of hours, easily fixed with M50 pads (have not done this). All in all highly recommend although everyone prefers different sound signatures, so try these out!! Also isolation is very good at low levels it blocks out enough, but once you start playing you can't hear a thing and people around you cannot either. February 13, 2013
    Amazing Headphones If you're an average listener or you do some studio work either way these things are amazing. I've owned them for about 3 months now and I just absolutely love them! The bass is incredible and I'd say their very good for studio artists and "beatmakers" such as myself, these are definitely not entry level headphones by no means, these give you excellent sound quality in every range: high, mids, lows. These work best with a good sound driver and even better with a headphone amp. You can blast these to the point of like "instant" deafness and there's still no distortion. I'd recommend these to anyone. These headphones are obviously better then beats, skullcandys ect. Their great competitorswith brands like sennhieser, shure, ect. December 20, 2012
    Too tight, wasted my $170 I am avid AT fan. I have had over the years almost 10 different Audio Technica and was never let down. But these headphones have let me down. I originally bought ATH-M50 from Amazon and loved how comfortable they were, except they lacked bass. So I heard good things about these and purchases them. I have had them since March now and honestly I have only used them about five times, 'cause no matter what I do they don't see to loosen up and I do have a big head. I had them stretched out many night over jars and food containers but nothing has helped. They are a little looser but the earpads are too thing that your ears touch the interior of the foam pads making it very painful. I do not know what to do with these now. My first disappointment with AT. Other day I tried Sony X and they were the best and most comfortable I have ever worn. I don't know what to do with these now. October 24, 2012

    Answer: 
    To expand on the previous answer, the original PRO700's did not feature a detachable cable. The pair in question are the first edition which have since been revised with that feature. From what I understand, the PRO700's did not have many counterfeits, but if you're concerned you can contact an authorized audiotechnica retailer and they may be able to assist you.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    I'm a big fan of the PRO700MK2's however you are correct, they tend to be a tight clamp on those with larger heads such as us. This is my recommendation, which has worked for myself and others in the past.

    You can either take a melon or a ball, and pet them on it as if it was wearing it- overnight. This tends to loosen them up a little bit and if you're you're using an average size melon or any other spherical object.

    If you're not comfortable with that, or don't have something like that on hand, the headbands are pretty rugged and can take a bit of a beating, so don't be afraid to stretch it out a little by even just by pulling the cups apart to push against the resistance. They'll break in.

    But you don't want to lose that tight seal, afterall, that affords you some of that great powerful bass the PRO700MK2's are known for, but you do want to be comfortable.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. Many factors are considered when sizing headphones and it is hard to find a size that is suitable to everyone. You could try storing them around something that is a bit larger than your head and they may relax a bit, but be careful not to damage the headphones by placing them on something to large. Please note that outside noise isolation is feature of these headphones, so a tight fit is necessary to accomplish this.

    Sound Quality

    I was wondering about the sound quality for these headphones. I know that they have good bass, but was wondering how the mids and highs are. An example of some music would be Linkin Park.

    The sound quality is excelling with the PRO700MK2. They have excellent frequency response. If you would like another option, the ATH-M50 are also excellent.

    Answers

    Answer: 
    If you listen to strictly those genres than the PRO700MK2 will suit you best whereas the bass response is much stronger. However if you listen to music where the bass is not the main focus as well as bass centric music such as dub step, you will benefit more from the M50's whereas the M50's are much more flattering to music where bass is not the main focal point.

    Thank you for your inquiry. This would be a personal preference question. The ATH-M50 have a more flat frequency response, while the ATH-Pro700MK2 may have more low end.

    The headphone I bought today are suppose to be Audio-Technica ATH-PRO700......After looking at them, they don't have the AUDIO-TECHNICA in white across the top of the headband, like the others. Also on the phones themselves, it says ATH-PRO700 only.....not ATH-PRO700MK2..or ATH-PRO700SV or ATH-PRO700MK2ANV....the cable is straight then coiled then straight. I've never owned Audio-Technica before but for a high end set of phones, I thought they would sound better, than these do. Are these one of the first set of ATH-PRO's, that they made, or are these FAKE? DOES ANYONE, KNOW?

    Answers

    Answer: 
    It's quite possible you purchased a counterfeit product from a retailer whom is not an authorized Audio Technica retailer.

    A good giveaway is the lack of print across the top of the headband whereas that is on both the older revision, the PRO700 as well as the PRO700MK2 series of headphones.

    Always be sure to purchase from an authorized retailer to ensure you are getting the quality Audio Technica product you're paying for and expecting.

    Answer: 
    If the headphones are silver in color they are the ATH-PRO700 SV. The headphones will have just ATH-PRO700 written on the backside of the earcup. The cable is straight, then coiled, then straight again.
    If they are black in color, they are the ATH-PRO700MKII and will have ATH-PRO700MKII written on the backside of the earcup. The cable is detachable and two cables are provided with the headphones. One coiled and one straight.
    As far as I know, the audio-technica name has always been printed across the headband on either model.
