Our take on the Audio-Technica ATH-A1000Z by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Do you like the extra bass punch you get with closed-back headphones, but still prefer a larger sound stage? Look here. The ATH-A1000Z over-ear headphones have massive earcups that are generously padded. Audio-Technica's improved 3D wing system keeps the headset stationary without clamping too tightly. Once you have them in place, they deliver precise, dynamic sound within a huge sound-field.

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.

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 ]
