Product Research


Overview: The ATH-A1000Z is part of the Art Monitor-series of Audio-Technica's high fidelity headphones. These over-ear headphones have large drivers that are tuned to accurately reproduce extreme low and high frequencies, including Hi-Res Audio reproduction. They have an attached 10' cable with a 3.5mm plug and a 3.5mm-to-1/4" adapter. The A1000Z headphones are ideal for studio and live work, or personal listening.

Drivers: The large 53mm large-aperture drivers feature bobbin-wound voice coils with 7N-grade (99.99999%-pure) oxygen-free copper wire (OFC-7N) for ultra-efficient signal transfer, superior performance, and wide frequency response. The drivers are installed in lightweight aluminum housings with a magnesium alloy baffle, which reduces unwanted resonance. The top-mounted PCB provides excellent transient response, and improved airflow and precise diaphragm movement, while the Double Air Damping system (DADS) augments the deep bass.

Comfort Features: The headphones feature Audio-Technica's proprietary 3D wing support system, which provides an improved fit and greater comfort for long listening sessions. The closed-back design helps keep out unwanted ambient noise, while the high-quality, stitched earpads gently surround your ear to provide the proper seal.

Cable: The ATH-A1000Z has a 10' attached dual-sided cable with an elastomer sheath that is tangle-resistant and dampens contact noise into the headphones. The cable features 4 cores of 6N-grade (99.9999%-pure) oxygen-free copper (OFC-6N) The cable terminates into a sturdy gold-plated 3.5mm plug with a screw-on 1/4" (6.3mm) adapter, so you can listen to your smartphone, tablet, and portable devices, as well as studio mixers, sound boards, and home audio components.

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
I've been using the ATH-M70x cans for the last year or so. I like them a lot and thus trust the Audio-Technica line. The specs on the A1000z are superior to the pair I use now and will take the plunge. I've spent a lot of time educating myself about hi-res files and believe using these cans and my DAC I'll hear every bit of music on my files and none of the noise. [ Scott  Dec 15, 2017 ]
