The Audio-Technica ATH-AD500X is a great headphone. It presents a highly refined and clean sound that is suitable for audio professionals and audiophiles alike. The soundstage on these headphones is massive and they're comfortable to wear.
AUDIO-TECHNICA PRESENTS THE ALL-NEW OPEN-BACK HEADPHONE - THE ATH-AD500X
Audio-Technica presents the latest addition of open-back headphones to their line-up of legendary headphones - the ATH-AD500X. Audio-Technica ATH-AD500X is designed for incredibly comfortable listening. With a lightweight honeycomb aluminium casing and magnesium frame structure, these open-back headphones produce no sense of pressure on the ears, offering a completely natural listening experience. Newly designed 53 mm drivers with CCAW voice coils reproduce remarkably natural sound, with impactful bass and outstanding vocal projection. The self-adjusting wing support automatically adjusts to your head size. A straight OFC cable at the left earpiece terminates to a mini plug with included 1/4" adapter.
EQUIPPED WITH 53MM DYNAMIC DRIVERS WITH CCAW VOICE COILS FOR PRISTINE AUDIO
Audio-Technica is well known for designing some of the most accurate sounding headphones out there and the ATH-AD500X is no different. In terms of sound quality, the ATH-AD500X manages to maintain the classic Audio-Technica sound. Equipped with 53mm drivers, they reproduce crystal clear audio with just the right amount of bass. Along with the drivers, the ATH-AD500X also embeds CCAW voice coils to produce remarkably natural sound, with deep bass and outstanding vocal projection. You’ll find that the drivers are further away from your ear than with most headphones. This design adds to the “open” feel to deliver an immersive listening experience. The open-back design keeps any pressure away from the ears, to allow for a natural listening sensation.
EXPERTLY ENGINEERED WITH A LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN AND 3D WING HEADBAND STRUCTURE
Carrying on the tradition of the air series, the Audio-Technica ATH-AD500X is as comfortable as ever. Most headphones, even in the circumaural category, end up causing some form of discomfort, either they’ll get warm, or the headband clamping pressure gets a little too much after a while, or the audio itself can lead to things like bass fatigue. The ATH-AD500X, with its lightweight honeycomb aluminium casing and magnesium frame structure, seems immune to these issues. The large honeycombed aluminium housing provides a sense of clarity and exceptional ventilation. The ATH-AD500X also comes with 3D wing headband support which is Self-adjusting and offers comfortable support for a more enjoyable listening experience, making the headphones feel weightless, even during prolonged use.
DURABLE EARPADS, QUALITY CABLES, AND BUNDLED WITH ACCESSORIES IN THE BOX
The soft fabric-lined earpads are comfortable for extended listening and the “self-adjusting 3D wing support” as Audio-Technica names it, provides resistance to keep the cans on your head. The earpads provide exceptional comfort that elevates the listening experience tenfolds. The single-sided OFC (oxygen-free copper) cable with an elastic TPE covering is provided to prevent tangling, and it is a considerate addition. This equipped cable is exceptionally long – almost 10 feet. This feature is often overlooked but is an advantage for home use when you want to sit back while listening to some nice tunes. Even if you plug it into your entertainment setup, the cable will allow you to go to your couch. A stereo 1/8″ (3.5mm) connector with a 1/4″ (6.3mm) adaptor in gold plating is included in the box to get you started.
