What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Audio-Technica ATH-R70x Professional Open-Back Reference Headphones

What customers say about "Features"
Audio-Technica ATH-R70x Professional Open-Back Reference Headphones
  • The headband is great. You can adjust the clamp force by shaping the metal band to your liking.
  • The headphones themselves and the ear cups are somewhat small but fits me perfectly.
  • Love these headphones. I have ascended from crappy "gaming headsets". I cannot recommend these enough. They are GREAT for beginner audiophiles.
  • The R70x's is super neutral, very open, and very comfortable. The soundstage is not the widest but its wide and immersive.
  • They deliver details and neutrality and fun that many ~$1000 headphones tried to but failed.
Audio-Technica ATH-M70x Closed-Back Dynamic Professional Studio Monitor Headphones
  • The most transparent sound from a headphone i've experienced. Clear highs, good solid lows, and very comfortable.
  • I love my new set. If you are used to the m50's you'll love these, they are well built, light, comfortable, come with plenty of cable options, a nice case, and sound great.
  • If you are making music and need to mix and master your work, these headphones are great for that.
  • Very smooth, detailed, and balanced sound. Perfect for mixing. These headphones, when listening to a well engineered and recorded source sound amazing for the price.
  • If you want nice everyday headphones for music listening and enjoyment, DON’T BUY THESE. These are NOT for everyday use at home, in the subway, etc.
