Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7BK SonicPro® Over-Ear High-Resolution Audio Headphones:
I'm listening to them as I write this and they are amazing. They've handled every music genre I have thrown at them with grace. Like others have said, they are not for bass lovers. That being said though, the bass comes through naturally and it sounds so good.
Once they are on, noise isolation is OK. With music off, they are so-so. Funny, I laughed at the other reviewer that said he felt that the noise was amplified with these headphones. But, he's not far off. Not saying they amplify the noise. But the muffled sounds feel more present. To me anyway. And apparently to the other reviewer.
I have a big head and I don't feel the clamping pressure others have mentioned. I've worn them right out of the box for an hr+ and they fit good. Ear cups could be a little deeper, but nothing some aftermarket parts can't fix.
I have the black set and they look as good as they sound. Solid construction. Great trim coloring. Just overall A+ attention to designing these headphones.
It comes with 3 cables and a lame bag. And that's where the 4 star review comes in. At this price point and considering they are labeled as portable, Audio-Technica needs to mean it and include a case. No excuse around it. It's just annoying to have that bag. It serves its purpose at home. But that's about it. Out and about, the superb headphones will definitely get beaten up. And why Audio-Technica, why?! Why design such nice headsets with awesome color schemes and not protect them?!
Other than my annoyance Haha, great purchase. Wait for a sale as they sometimes drop 20$-30$. You'll need that to buy a case for these darn things (OK I'm done talking about the case. *think happy thoughts*). The sound is amazing. They look amazing. You won't regret the purchase.
... Except no case. :P

Q:I currently own the m50x and like them a lot. I listen using a boombox. I listen to artist such as The Beatles, The Alan Parsons Project, Boz Scaggs, Supertramp, Steely Dan, Chris Rea and Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. My question is will I like these even better than the m50s
A:Whether you will like the ATH-MSR7BK's more than your ATH-M50x's is subjective. Both are amazing-sounding headphones and you can't go wrong with either choice. The MSR's have bigger ear pads and might be more comfortable for you. The frequency range on the MSR's are different than the ATH-M50x's. You might notice that the MSR's don't extend the low-end quite as much as the ATH-M50x's. Like I said, you can't go wrong with either pair!
Q:Is their a switch for active noise canceling
Q:Is the microphone cable wired according to OMTP or CTIA standard? I need a splitter to connect the mic/headphone to my PC and this information is needed to obtain the correct one.
Q:are these wireless?
Q:Are these headphones prewired for balanced operation? Do you make a balanced 4-pin XLR cable? Thanks.
Q:Can I buy a 3 party cable and use with the headphone.
A:You may use a third party cable with unidentified limitations. We recommend using the intended Audio-Technica manufactured cables.
Q:Great phones, but very frustrating to find the correct cord for plugging into a 1/4 inch stereo receiver. I need a solid 1/8 male to 1/4 male 10' cord. Where do I find this? Any reason an adapter isn't included. Thanks, Paul
A:We do not manufacture a 1/8" to 1/4" stereo cable. Please contact our audio solutions department at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance obtaining an adapter.
Q:Is there a case for the MSR7 available?
A:You may use any third party headphone case that will fit your headphones.
Q:Case that's compatible with the MSR7? Looking for protection for when I'm on the go. The bag doesn't protect anything.
A:You may use a third party case for your ATH-MSR7 headphones.
Q:What is the audio quality difference for the M70 headphones and MSR- 7 headphones?
A:Each headphone will have its own sonic signature and features. I always recommend trying them out for yourself. The ATH-M70 headphones are designed for professional recording studio use, while the ATH-MSR7 headphones are designed for Hi-Resolution audio playback.
