Audio-Technica announces the introduction of its ATH-WB LTD audiophile wooden headphones. The limited-edition ATH-WB LTD is designed to deliver richly detailed, natural sound and is exquisitely handcrafted from layered woods and premium materials. 

Audio-Technica is an advocate of the benefits of wooden headphones, both for their natural beauty and beneficial sonic properties. The ATH-WB LTD continues this philosophy. Each ATH-WB LTD is finely crafted in Audio-Technica’s facility in Tokyo, Japan. The housings are made from flame maple, walnut and mahogany, for a striking multilayered appearance. The combination of the different woods yields excellent acoustic damping properties, for purer, more musical audio reproduction. To complement the stunning woods, the earpads and headband are made from sheepskin for long-wearing comfort.

The ATH-WB LTD incorporates a proprietary 45 mm driver with a powerful magnetic circuit and a DLC (diamond-like carbon) coated diaphragm for warm, detailed analog sound. The headphones offer extraordinary sonic realism, with articulate, textured bass, exceptional midrange accuracy and presence, and open, extended high-frequency reproduction. The headphones are compact and have a fold-flat design for easy portability, making them the ideal companion for everyone seeking true high-end audio quality from personal audio players, laptops, smartphones and other devices.

The limited-edition Audio-Technica ATH-WB LTD wired wooden headphones will be available in limited quantities in June 2024 at a suggested retail price of $1,599.

Audio-Technica was founded in 1962 with the mission of producing high-quality audio for everyone. As we have grown to design critically acclaimed headphones, turntables and microphones, we have retained the belief that great audio should not be enjoyed only by the select few, but accessible to all. Building upon our analog heritage, we work to expand the limits of audio technology, pursuing an ever-changing purity of sound that creates connections and enriches lives.
