This new pair of open-back headphones is a delight to every audiophile. It comes in at a time when Sennheiser HD 800s and Focal Utopia rule the luxury audiophile market. 



To be more specific, the Audio Technica ATH ADX5000 uses a 58mm tungsten coated dynamic driver that promises to sound better than ever.
