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

I am in need of a new set of cans and these would do nicely.

I could sure a decent phone!

I like free stuff.

To jam on!

torturegarden's picture

I could always use another pair of cans.

listen2music's picture

How do they compare with my ATH-AD700?

Dick James's picture

Extra headphones always come in handy.

Catch22's picture

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.

DougM's picture

I want these!

jmq's picture

Can't wait to try these out!

ohchinho's picture

I want one of these!

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

wudze's picture

These would keep the missus happy.

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.

zoltanvarga's picture

It would be a nice present :)

weso's picture

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. ;)


johnpy2's picture

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

jelyon's picture

Hint hint...

beerguy's picture

lrad's picture

Another great contest :-)

knt00's picture

I like to say that I would love a pair of these for various reasons, one being they are one of the best quality headphones money can buy. I'd also like to add that they are extremely durable and the sound quality is by far amonst the best. In ending I'll say this brand of handphones are the rolls royce of headphones. Audio-Technica if I could show case these for you I'd be more that happy to do so. You've done it again...

I've recently purchased my first turntable setup and I have plenty of records to listen to, but I lack a pair of headphones. These would come in handy so I don't wake the baby.

I would love to compare the ATH-OX7AMP to my passive headphones. Kind of a passive/aggressive shodown, eh?

All theses people saying they could use new cans sound like they actually want a plastic surgeon. But I would love to rock these headphones - at work with my cheaper turntable setup.

Well, lets try my luck :) "Any comment will do"

Rohmer's picture

I still have mixed feelings about headphones. I have always preferred listening to quality floor standing speakers, but there are a few times headphones are better to hear details. Maybe I'll try headphones more often.

laclayton's picture

Any comment will do

These would be a great addition to my very small collection!
