Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-AD900X Audiophile Open-Air Headphones:
I love these headphones!!!!! I'm really into music! I'm 41 and have been in love with music since I could understand what it was. I use the Fiio Mont Blanc amp. But, they aren't necessarily needed with these outstanding headphones! I'd heard that Audio Technica headphones were a cut above the usual suspects like Sony, Seinheiser, And the like. I pulled the trigger and got the 50x. They were really good. But then I wanted a really nice pair for home use. I saw some intriguing videos referencing the Ath AD900x headphones and every video basically said the same thing. They all said they were outstanding! I got a very good deal on eBay and listened! Let me just say, you have NEVER heard your favorite music like this before! Also, as I'm writing this review I'm listening with them now! I want to try the closed back 900x too.

Q:Plastic or aluminum? If i add a headphone amp will it boost the bass?
Q:Do you know of a good carry case for these headphones?
A:You may use a third party case for your ATH-AD900x headphones.
Q:Are there replacement wings available?
A:Please contact our Service Department for assistance with this. They may be reached at (330)-686-2600 ext 5004 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q:Can I purchase the driver from these headphones separately?
A:Yes you can. Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at email@example.com to purchase this item.
Q:Can these headphones be used without an amplifier? Say, plugging in directly to a mobile device or computer?
A:With any current-model Audio-Technica headphones, it is not a requirement to use/purchase a (portable) headphone amplifier to be used in addition to your playback device (such as a mobile device or a computer). However, if you prefer the sound of a dedicated headphone amplifier, that shouldn’t be a problem either.
Q:Is there a frequency response graph available somewhere?
A:Unfortunately, Audio-Technica does NOT offer or publish frequency response curves for any headphones. This is also consistent with other headphone manufactures in the industry. Generally speaking, there is both an art and science to manufacturing headphones, and the frequency response curves for most headphones (not limited to A-T) do NOT always line up with human perception (and thus, the frequency response can appear to be misleading). For headphones, it is always best to judge for yourself whether they sound "good" or not.
Q:What makes these headphones better than the two less expensive modes?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Although similar, the ATH-AD900X can handle more power and in some cases has better frequency response.
Q:DAC + Amplifier
A:The answer really depends, simply put something like a Fiio E17 will drive it very nice, and the E17 is a DAC and Amp, although I would recommend you get something like a Jds Labs oDac and a Garage 1217 Hybrid Tube Amp, as the AD900X would really sound magical with a hybrid tube!
A:We do not typically make recommendations for these. Personally, I have heard good things about the Audioengine D1 D/A Converter. needledoctor.com is a good source for a DAC + Amplifier.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Please contact our parts department at 330-686-2600 option 4. They can help with this.
Q:Will W5000 Earpads fit on the AD900X?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. I checked with our service department and they advised that they will fit.
