The AD900X are Open-Back headphones that sit comfortably with any true audiophile.
Utilising the Open-Back design, CCAW and D.A.D.S, the headphones bring an exceptional level of clarity into your living room.
The massive 53mm driver is supported by audio-technica's CCAW (Copper-Clad Aluminium-Wire) voice coil technology which allows the headphones to resonate with power and precision. They also utilise the D.A.D.S (Double Air Damping System) which controls the air flow inside the headphone which improves and extends the bass response, without introducing unwanted discolouration or distortion.
The massive 53mm driver doesn't just go low, but it also maintains it clarity even at higher volumes. Needless to say, we don't recommend blasting the sound on continuously, but we can say that the AD900X is always in control of the music, even at higher volume levels.
Combined with its Open-Back design, the AD900X produce a huge sound stage, in such a natural and transparent way. Detail is delicate and insightful, uncovering lays in songs you have known for years.
As with many high end audio-technica headphones, these headphones are here to stay. They will not hit you in the face with extreme frequencies, but instead reward you over time with an insightful, sophisticated sound. A headphone which will enable you to listen for hours on end, and leaving you wanting more.
Like many of the audio-technica range, the ATH-AD900X uses the '3D Wing' to support the head. This allows the headphones to sit comfortably on any head with minimum disruption or unwanted pressure areas. Many say this system of pressure distribution is one of the best out there.
Elements of the headphone are made out of Aluminium and Magnesium. This reduces the overall weight of the headphones to just 265grams. It also adds to the rigidity and strength of the headphones.
This in conjunction with the soft velvet, memory foam ear pads enable you to listen for hours on end.

Please note that professional reviews for headphones are much more varied than traditional Hi-Fi. With Bookshelf Speakers and the likes, it's quite often to get 5 stars straight across the board. With Headphones, it's very rare that everyone agrees on the quality of the product, therefore straight 5 star reviews are very rare. Critically acclaimed headphones will generally average around 4 stars regardless of performance, so don't be put off by this.
That being said, we always prefer to show each review where possible, even if the review isn't so flattering. It is after all a very subjective opinion as everyone has different hearing abilities and preferred styles. Think of it like wine, you can buy a £100 bottle, but prefer a £6. At the end of the day it's down to taste and taste alone.

If you're looking for an open-backed set of cans to adorn your skull at home, the ATH-AD900x will do so in style, clad in backs that are reminiscent of black metal fishnets. Just keep in mind that these headphones mark a slight departure from the previous iteration, as they do not have a completely even frequency response—they underemphasize some of the higher sounds, and that may or may not fit with what you're looking for.Read full review
