  • Overview

    The ATH-A2000Z Art Monitor® closed-back dynamic headphones feature proprietary large-aperture 53 mm drivers to deliver exquisite Hi-Res Audio reproduction. The hand-assembled drivers include a top-quality German Permendur* magnetic circuit with significant magnetic flux density, OFC-7N bobbin-wound voice coils for ultra-efficient signal transmission, a pure iron yoke for superior transient response, and a top-mounted PCB for smoother airflow that enables precise diaphragm movement.

    The housings of the ATH-A2000Z are crafted from rigid, pure-titanium housings and incorporate a lightweight magnesium alloy baffle to reduce unwanted resonance. The housings also feature Audio-Technica’s Double Air Damping System (D.A.D.S) for deep, natural-sounding bass reproduction. The bass is further extended by the headphones’ stitched, ergonomic earpads, which provide outstanding sound isolation along with unmatched comfort. The auto-adjusting fit of A-T’s improved 3D wing support system adds to the comfort, allowing you to listen to the headphones’ pure, high-resolution audio for hours on end.

    *A material offering excellent magnetic characteristics, Permendur is used for some compression drivers and other highly efficient magnetic products.

    Great Cans, Beautiful too


    I am so glad I finally bought both the 1000 and the 2000z. I did change the ear pads so that they fit and seal better. Both are clear and great for listening to Jazz

  • Q & A

    I know most your products don't use animal leather. Is this one of them well as well?


    Thank you for contacting Audio-Technica U.S., Inc. All Headphones sold by ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) are vegan-friendly except the following: ATH-W5000 (leather earpads) ATH-ESW9A(leather earpads/headband) ATH-ESW990H (leather earpads/headband)


    Are the cables detachable? Also how much does it isolate sound? I listen to hip hop and dance and pop and some classics which one would be the best headphone? I use my iPhone as a portable use.


    The cables are permanently attached to the headphones. As the fit and clamp pressure of the headphones against your head is an important variable in the passive noise cancelling (isolation) and each person's head is different, I recommend trying the headphones out for yourself and see if they will best suit your needs.


    How big is the difference in design and used materials between ATH-A2000Z and ATH-A2000X?

    Thank you for your inquiry. The physical design of the A2000z and the A2000x are really not much different other than the ear pads on the A2000z are made of a material that is a bit more durable. The A2000z also has a higher impedance of 44 ohms vs 42 ohms on the A2000x's, and the A2000z's are a little bit lighter weighing 294 grams vs 298 grams on the A2000x's. Other than that the two models are very similar.
