Ben Mynott – Keeps its Chilled with Audio-Technica

DJ, producer, radio presenter and leading light of the UK chill-out scene discovers the sonic superiority of ATH-PRO700 headphones


Leeds 03-29-2008 DJ, producer, radio presenter and leading light of the UK chill-out scene discovers the sonic superiority of ATH-PRO700 headphones.

With a list of credits that includes the Big Chill fluidnation nights, Chill (DAB), the Fluid Nation compilations, and a previous career as one half of the massively acclaimed production duo Fragile State, Ben Mynott, DJ, radio presenter, producer, artist and label manager, is a veritable mainstay of the downtempo club scene.

A man who demands sheer quality from his monitor cans, on the decks or at the mixing desk, Ben has found sonic fulfilment with Audio-Technica’s ATH-PRO700 professional headphones.

“I’ve used many major brand DJ headphones,” he states, “and I always find that either they are too trebly or if they have good bass response, then the top end clarity suffers. But I’m absolutely blown away with the ATH-PRO700 headphones. A lot of music I am mixing is orchestral in style, a lot of stuff with upright bass; with the Audio-Technicas the sound is beautiful. I love the bass response and the clarity. I have never used a headphone that’s so perfectly balanced.”

A resident fixture at London’s Big Chill and Chill House nights, and on Chill (DAB), Ben now pursues his multifarious activities under the Fluid Nation umbrella; producing, compiling and remixing compilations; more than 20 albums to date, including for ilabel, Hed Kandi, Bar De Lune, One World Music and Slip ‘n’ Slide.

With 53 mm diameter drivers, neodymium magnets, and 3,500 mW power handling, the ATH-PRO700 headphones deliver outstanding sound reproduction. The circumaural design achieves remarkable isolation from ambient noise, making them perfect for immersive listening in loud environments. Build quality and sonic performance make this Audio-Technica’s top of the range DJ headphone.
