What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Audio-Technica ATH-AD1000X Open-Air Dynamic Headphones
  • The cups, drivers, headband, and wing supports are light-weight and that lightness goes along nicely with their sound.
  • My favorite thing about these headphones is the weight, they truly are super lightweight.
  • Light-weight, fairly comfy headphones that produce audio quality that surpasses every head pair of headphones I've used before it.
  • The sound is perfect for me, I love the sound and they are very comfortable/lightweight.
  • They stay on my head quite well, but after a while I feel like the earpads are carrying the majority of the headphones weight, which gets a bit fatiguing after 3-4 hours.
Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000X Open-Air Headphones
  • Its extremely light and the earpads (I don't know what its called) is remarkably soft and comfortable.
  • The best sound I have ever heard of. Very light and durable constrcted.
  • Light weight and comfortable design. Nice vocal reproduction.
  • These headphones, I feel, are very airy and spacious. I'll jump right into this by saying how the upper-mids are what is emphasized in this headphone.
  • y favorite thing about these headphones is the weight, they truly are super lightweight.

What customers say about "Features"
Audio-Technica ATH-AD1000X Open-Air Dynamic Headphones
  • The wing system works great for me, I have no issues, they stay where I put them, unless I'm chewing on some food, then they seem to move around a bit.
  • The mids and highs sound clear and crisp allowing you to pinpoint where foot steps are coming from.
  • The highs and mids were very, balanced. The lows are good, too.
  • These headphones got a huge presence of the treble, very shiny. Clear mid frequencies and not bassy. Huge and natural soundstage.
  • The cable connecting to the headphone gets really annoying because of the way they bend, really have to break them in.
Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000X Open-Air Headphones
  • It sounds amazing! this headphone also has an amazing 3d sound that really makes you feel like you're in the game's environment.
  • I've dropped this numerous times and its still fine! the headphone itself, also doesn't feel cheap at all.
  • Exellent comfort when wearing. And open dynamics makes listening for a long time also way more comfortable, then closed ones.
  • Excellent sound! Transparent crisp and airy signature. Great mids. Good punchy bass but not for bassheads. Recommended!
  • These headphones are amazing for vocals, particularly for female vocals. Folk, jazz and acoustic music really shine as well.
