Audio-Technica delivers beauty, style, elegance and performance in its new ebony headphones

Leeds 05-08-2008 Audio-Technica, the leading Japanese manufacturer of high-performance microphones, headphones, wireless systems, mixers and electronic products for the home and professionals, has unveiled the ATH-W5000 model; a pair of beautifully crafted ebony headphones that can deliver formidable levels of power; and offer an ultra-comfortable fit from a truly stunning design.

Equipped with a striped ebony housing carved from a solid block for superb acoustic matching, the W5000 dynamic headphones achieve new levels of audiophile sound quality and listening comfort. These “high-end” headphones deliver extremely high sound pressure levels with true fidelity and absolute neutrality whilst offering an ultra-comfortable fit and an appearance design that is simply stunning. The super powerful large aperture 53mm neodymium magnet based transducers have coils wound with what engineers call a “super pure 8N-Oxygen Free Copper with bobbing winding voice coil” which translates into a sound producing system which projects sounds with incredible delicacy and detail from an ultra low 5Hz to a super high 45kHz.

Audio-Technica's unique Wing Support Housing vibration-proof mechanism (PAT) gives a comfortable support ensuring a pleasurable listening experience no matter how long you enjoy the pleasure of good music. The unique and patented Double Air Damping System provides a really deep bass extension and accurate reproduction rarely heard from headphones.

The Audio-Technica W5000 headphones have 3 metre cables made from the highest quality Oxygen Free Copper conductors and are supplied with a high quality durable hard carrying case and a cable storage bag. The suggested retail price will be £699.95.
