      Comments about Audio-Technica ATH-A700x Audiophile Closed-back Dynamic Headphones:

      Not being a stranger to audiophile quality headphones, and after owning my fair share of headgear, these cans offer an excellent and reliable sound stage that offers a neutral listening experience. These are the closest I've ever come to experiencing studio monitor quality while not using actual studio monitors. Get these if you want the best bang for your buck!

          These sound wonderful. Good base response and good audio sound all around, mids and highs. I am disappointed that the foam on the ear pieces is coming off already.

          • Q:

            A700x replacement pad alternatives

            Since the thin laminate of the earpad is prone to breakdown and peeling, what AT ear pads may fit the A700x? Will the real leather pads for the W5000 fit? Or is there a good aftermarket alternative? Paper sleeves aren't an option.
            Asked on 6/26/2014 by pmiddlet72

            1 answer

            • A:

              The leather earpads from the ATH-W5000, and the Velvet/Cloth earpads from the ATH-AD700x, will work with the ATH-A700x. If you are located in the United States, these earpads can be purchased through the ATUS Parts Department (parts@atus.com).

              PLEASE NOTE:

              - Using different earpads (other than the stock earpads) will indeed effect the frequency-response of any headphones.

              - The non-leather material ATUS uses for the A700x headphones is made with a vinyl-based or polyurethane-based material that ATUS refers to as “leatherette”. It is not prone to breaking down if the headphone earpads are properly maintained. To clean leatherette earpads, first you must UNPLUG them from any device. Then, use a small amount of mild-strength detergent and water. Please make certain that you do NOT use a detergent that is known to irritate your skin. Also, AVOID using any products containing any amount Bleach, Alcohol, or Ammonia, as they could dry out the material. It is recommended that you do NOT soak the headphones with the cleaning solution; rather, dampen a cloth and try on an inconspicuous area first. Do not “scrub” the headphones; rather, just give a gentle cleaning. After using the recommended cleaning method listed above, please wipe down with a water-dampened cloth. Allow to dry thoroughly before again using your headphones.

              If you are not located in the United States, please contact the Audio-Technica division for your world area:

          • Q:

            Is this model (ath-A700x) theoretically better for classical music reproduction than the m50?

            I am looking for accuracy, clarity, flat response when listening to orchestral classical music from my cd/flac music library. I understand this is subjective but would like to know what is the general consensus.
            Also does this model have good isolation?

              Yes. They are excellent and really pick up the smaller nuances that usually go unnoticed with other brands. I love these due to the fact that they are super neutral and the sound doesn't bleed.

            • A:

              Both are very accurate headphones and for your application, either set of headphones will be excellent. The ATH-M50 are designed to be perceptually accurate. The ATH-A700x are designed to be very high quality headphones for the audiophile community. Both have excellent isolation. You are correct that this is subjective and quite difficult to answer.

              However, a consumer review related to your question, that might be helpful, can be found below:

            ATH-W3000ANV --- Replacing an earcup

            W3000ANV ask a question page seems to be closed to new inquiries, therefore I am using this page to ask
            A. - Can I get/buy a replacement for one wooden earcup of W3000ANV headphones ? And can I get/buy another earcup as a spare in case of the future need ?
            B. - Can I buy a spare set of the W3000ANV drivers in case of a future need/problem ?
            C. - I think Audio Technica should have offered a purchase of safe transport/carrying case for the W3000ANV as an option. Can I buy from Audio Technica a carrying case for W5000 ?

            are the ath-a700x better or worse in: sound, comfort, build quality. over the ath-m50

            • A:

              Thank you for your inquiry. This is hard to answer because headphone preferences are very subjective. Also, they are designed for different uses. The ATH-M50's are designed for studio use, so the frequencies are somewhat flat (not over emphasized). As a recording engineer the ATH-M50's are my favorite headphones. The ATH-A700x are audiophile headphones will have an enhanced low end. Build quaility is similar between them.
