Balanced Sound Signature

Headphones with a Balanced sound signature presents a precise sound and an enriching listening experience, where sounds are naturally presented without extreme emphasis on any region. With a pair of headphones with this sound signature, you can hear audio with clarity and detail. The sound is vivid and revealing, a perfect mixture of instruments and vocals, lows, mids, and highs. This sound signature works for most music listeners who like switching between various music genres like Classical, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Folk and Pop.

Ideal for Audiophiles

These Wired Headphones are designed for discerning music lovers. If you are someone who cares about audio quality deeply, you'll want a pair of Wired Headphones like these. You can expect these Wired Headphones to present you with a refined listening experience. The audio quality exhibited by these Wired Headphones is a beautiful mix of musicality, technical brilliance and high precision. These Wired Headphones deliver a spacious and open soundstage that compares listening to music on actual speakers.

Metal build

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage. Modern processes allow all kinds of precious and durable metals to be used while making devices and offer a longer lifetime for users.

Open-Back Design

Headphones with an Open-Back design are rather special in that they allow air to pass through the headphone ear cups to the speaker. What this means is that since open-back headphones don’t block surrounding noises as closed-back do, you’ll be able to enjoy an immersive sound experience. The sound is more natural and high fidelity due to the lack of pressure build-up. Open-back headphones create a feeling of space, presenting a feeling as if the musicians are all sitting around you. These headphones are perfect for critical listening sessions and mixing and mastering music due to their accurate soundstage presentation.

Needs Amplification

If you plug your wired headphones directly into your phone or laptop, you are probably not hearing them at their best. This usually happens because the amplifier in your phone or laptop is not capable enough to drive your headphones to their best. A dedicated headphone amplifier is an elegant solution for this, and it can power your wired headphones to their maximum capability. When you invest in a good pair of wired headphones that are hard to drive, it's worth getting a dedicated headphone amp as it will make your headphones sound even better.

Tangle-Free Cables

Every time you reach for the headphone cables to connect them to your headphones, and no matter how neatly you wrapped them up, they end up in a giant Gordian knot of frustration. Tangled cables are the bane of modern existence, and everyone owning a wired pair of headphones or IEM can attest to this. With advances in cable making techniques and radical approaches to manufacturing, there are now several solutions to this universal problem. You get Flat cables, Mesh Design cables, cables coated with exterior covers and cables designed with a zipper style design to avoid Tangle and attempt to solve the issue.

Super Lightweight Design

When you want to be constantly hooked to your music, you’d need a pair of lightweight headphones – one that you can wear and forget about instead of one that keeps pressing you down with its weight. And contrary to popular belief, the sound quality of your headphones doesn’t change with weight. Recent designs have combined durable, yet light materials to construct lightweight headphones that are sleeker, trendier and more comfortable than ever before. Of course, lightweight headphones are also easy to take along wherever you go – they don’t add weight to your bag or occupy too much space.

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

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.
