  • Overview

    The ATH-A990Z Art Monitor® closed-back dynamic headphones feature proprietary large-aperture 53 mm drivers with OFC bobbin-wound voice coils to deliver Hi-Res Audio reproduction. The drivers’ integrated yoke and top-mounted PCB contribute to the high-resolution performance by providing superior transient response and smoother airflow for precise diaphragm movement. The lightweight aluminum housings reduce unwanted resonance and incorporate Audio-Technica’s Double Air Damping System (D.A.D.S) for deep bass reproduction. A-T’s improved 3D wing support system ensures a great, comfortable fit, aided by the headphones’ soft, premium-grade earpads. The 3.0 m (9.8') tangle-free cable is cloth-wrapped for lasting durability.
