Curious how it will compare to this old one from the 80's. Always served me well.

How do they compare with my ATH-AD700?

Extra headphones always come in handy.

If you're going to go over the ear, go over the entire ear with padding so the compression isn't on the ear itself. Those would last me about 10 minutes tops before I'd be ripping them off my head.

I want these!

Can't wait to try these out!

I think that Audio-Technica used to import the old Gale Loudspeaker (as seen in "A Clockwork Orange"?)

I admit to being a bit jaded when it comes to headphones but these have my full attention. You can blame it on their flexibility!

What a treat it would be to win a Stereophile sweepstakes! Enjoy the print edition each month, together with the online site.

It would be a nice present :)

I need those headphones!

aaybes's picture

Re: Catch22, these are on-ear headphones, not over-ear headphones. I have a pair of each and it's true that over ear are more comfortable for long listening but they are also significantly bulkier. Trade-offs. ;)

Love to hear a pair of these. I love ATs.

jelyon's picture

Hint hint...

beerguy's picture

I look forward to trying out these new headphones.

Looks like the perfect way to enhance my hammock!

Would love to hear these for myself. Been a fan of audio-technica since the early 80's when I purchased my first cartridge for my turntable.
