The ATH-SR5 is a stylish On-Ear, Closed-Back headphone driven by a 45mm driver that's bound to impress.
The ATH-SR5 is the non Bluetooth variant of the ATH-SR5BT. This makes it more affordable due to less technology being packed into the device. However, it still contains all the audio that the SR5BT has to offer.
Like many audio-technica products, the photos never do them justice. Once you unpack the product from the boxing it immediately strikes you how well built the headphones are.
Soft memory foam ear pads adjust perfectly to your ears, making them feel so comfy you won't want to take them off. An almost symbiotic experience.
The ATH-SR5's are made with top quality materials, making them feel chunky yet light and portable. The foldable design makes them that much more practical when on the go.
Similar to the SR5BT, we love the sound and feel that for the money, they are hard to beat.
We love it how the headphones are so neutral. How there is no dip or shortfall in frequency range. The treble is glorious and mids provide plenty of punch. Bass is very present but not overwhelming. Overall they prove to be great for all listening types. You can listen to them for long listening sessions, but they are by no means boring to listen to.
These don't have the aptX Bluetooth technology of the SR5BT, however they still provide exactly the same quality of listening for a cheaper price. Overall we would say these are quite a class leading on-ear headphone for this price bracket.

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.
