The A990Z enters the world of High Fidelity headphones as it stretches across the frequency ranges, and presents audio in a detailed yet refined way. Something the 'average' audiophile is always looking for.
The A990Z provide a very spacious and natural sound which extends throughout the frequency range.
Like many high end audio-technica products, the A990Z uses the D.A.D.S (Double Air Damping System) technology. This controls and manoeuvres the air flow throughout the headphones so that they extend the audio to lower frequencies. That being said, these don't sound flabby. Quite the opposite, these headphones are in control of the music.
Often people say that these headphones are very balanced. By this they mean the high, mid and lows are in synchronisation with each other. They don't accentuate one frequency range or cause distortion which may colour the sound.
As a result, you never get tired of listening to the headphones, they are always a joy to listen to regardless of the genre, or mood that you're in.
Beneath the Deep Metallic Forest Green paint lies an Aluminium housing. This not only works well for acoustic resonation, but also reduces the weight of the headphones.
Often Closed-Back headphones can be rather weighty due to the isolating materials needed, however the Aluminium housing and '3D Wing Support' effortlessly sits on your head with minimum pressure.
The Wing Support fits many head sizes and the ear pads are very large, so can accommodate even the largest of ears.
All these features allow you have to very lengthy periods without any discomfort at all.

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.
