Audio Technica awesomeness!
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
After much deliberation, I finally decided to pull the trigger on a new set of cans for use primarily at work. Seeing that I listen to an array of music and for long periods, I wanted something with a solid blend of comfort and superb acoustics but was also wired. I looked at several different options by audiophile grade, reputable manufacturers and had an opportunity to listen to all those in consideration with the exception of one set (a pair of Focal monitors). Once I'd done so, I decided on these outstanding Audio Technicas and have grown to enjoy them since first placing them on my head and firing up my fave Pink Floyd song. Excellent build quality, a clean and high end look, and clean audio are all hallmarks of the MSR7. I've yet to be disappointed and don't suspect I will be. Give them a listen and you'll understand.
Pros: Overall tonal clarity Clean, clear bass Expanded frequency range vs non "Hi-Res" headphones Subdued, sharp look and overall design Comfortable earcups Tight seal prevents noise intrusion without ANC Three included cables (one with mic for calls) High quality storage bag
Cons: Doesn't fold down as small as some competitors Hard travel case would be preferred for this price point
