The A1000Z is a Closed-Back audiophile headphone that kicks out 2 - 43,000hz. Smooth and sophisticated in its approach, the A1000Z uncovers elements in songs like no other.
As with other high end audio-technica headphones, the ATH-A1000Z uses the D.A.D.S system. This controls the flow of air throughout the headphones allowing a lower and more controlled bass response. The unique Bobbin-Wound voice coil ensures the headphones drive with power and precision, allowing them to execute such a wide range of frequencies. This enables them to scale from 2 to 43,000hz. Additional dampening also reduces unwanted frequencies and increases isolation.
For a Closed-Back headphone the soundstage is huge. They maintain their clarity throughout the ranges, delivering smooth and detailed sound. They are always amusing, but never push the frequencies so far that they become shrill. They deliver audio in a very sophisticated and balanced way which will allow you the listen for hours on end.
Needless to say, audio-technica have used their '3D Wing Support' to provide optimum comfort and support. This design automatically fits your head, so no adjusting is needed. The springs within the arms simply collaborate to your head size and fit accordingly.
In addition to this, elements of the headphones are made out of Magnesium and Aluminium. This not only increases rigidity / strength and acoustics, but also reduces the overall weight. Considering these are a premium pair of headphones, they only weigh 265grams (without the cable).
All these factor enable you to listen to the ATH-A1000Z 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.
