The ATH-ADX5000 Hi-Res Audio headphones set a high standard in open-back headphone performance. First of all, the headphones utilize highly developed Core Mount Technology. This technology optimally positions the driver unit within the housing to improve airflow efficiency. As a result, the headphones reproduce highly transparent mid and high frequencies and rich, precise bass sound.

Next, the 58 mm drivers combine a tungsten-coated diaphragm, baffle, and Permendur magnetic circuit in a single unit. Consequently, this reduces unwanted vibration. The headphones are lighter than they would be otherwise because they don't require screw clamps. The baffle is made of highly-rigid polyphenylene sulfide (PPS)/glass fiber composite. Therefore, it provides stable diaphragm movement.

Finally, the housings of the Audio Technica ATH-ADX5000 Audiophile Open-Air Headphones have a honeycomb-punched design. As a result, it keeps the housing face open to ventilation, while closing off the sides. Additionally, it delivers an accurate, natural sound, but prevents air pressure loss that can negatively affect sound quality. Strong and lightweight magnesium makes up the frame of the headphones. Lastly, the earpads and headbands are fashioned from Alcantara, a material known for its extreme durability and comfort.

The Audio Technica ATH-ADX5000 Audiophile Open-Air Headphones are the first of this kind by Audio Technica!

What the Press is Saying

"I think Audio-Technica ATH-ADX5000 is not getting the attention it deserves. :)

Having listened extensively to Audeze LCD-3, Audeze LCD-X, Sennheiser HD 800 S, Sennheiser HD 800, Focal Clear, Focal Elegia, MrSpeakers AEON Flow Open, MrSpeakers AEON Flow Closed, Audeze LCD-2 and Audeze LCD-2 Classic at my local dealer, ATH-ADX5000 were my favorite headphones, with incredible detail, speed, transparency, extremely airy, and completely "effortless" when playing."

"They're not $2,000 headphones, they're a portal to sounds you've never heard"

"The Audio Technica ATH-ADX5000 are wonderfully comfortable, light, and great-sounding headphones. They did a great job with their first open-back cans and I'm excited to see what they come up with next."
