Our take on the Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7

I like it when I don't have to add the qualifying phrase, "at this price." These Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 are some of the most highly respected headphones on the market, period. The fact that they come in at a relatively affordable price is just gravy.

I like it when I don't have to add the qualifying phrase, "at this price." These Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 are some of the most highly respected headphones on the market, period. The fact that they come in at a relatively affordable price is just gravy.

They offer incredibly detailed, well-balanced sound that works for almost any genre of music. There's not a ton of bass, but it is very tightly controlled. In fact, there's not one sound characteristic that jumps out at me — it's just an overall pleasant listening experience.

Product Research


Overview: The ATH-MSR7 is part of the Sound Reality-series of Audio-Technica's consumer headphones. These over-ear headphones have large drivers that can deliver the wide frequency range of High Resolution Audio. The headphones come three cables, all with a high quality 3.5mm gold-plated plug: a 52" and 10' straight audio cable, and a 52" cable with an in-line remote/mic for controlling music and phone calls on your mobile device. The ear cups swivel 90° so you can fold them flat and store them in the included vinyl storage pouch.

Drivers: The newly-designed 45mm True Motion drivers feature lightweight voice coils, a custom-mounted PCB, and specially designed diaphragm for superior performance and wide frequency response. The Multi-layer Air Damping system features layered aluminum/magnesium housing and a triple-vent system for controlling the air flow and reducing vibration.

Comfort Features: The headphones feature ultra-soft memory foam earpads and headband with stitched covers.

Cables: The ATH-MSR7 comes with three interchangeable cables. One cable can be used with your portable devices, and has an in-line, one-button remote and microphone for controlling your music and phone calls. The remote lets you play/pause your music, and skip to the next track, plus accept or reject incoming phone calls and activating Apple's Siri or Android's voice assistance. The remote has additional functionality with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, including fast forward/reverse, and skipping to the previous track. The other two cables do not include the remote/mic, and are 10' and 52" in length. All three cables terminate into a high-quality, gold-plated 3.5mm plug.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Reviews are outstanding and a great price. [ Kevin  Oct 26, 2018 ]
I was needing a hi-def set of headphone non Bluetooth . I did a lot of research of many headphones by reviews and also Crutchfield takes and I came to the conclusion that these was the best value for the money . I plan to get a nice pair of Bluetooth headphones later on but got what I need most at the moment . I feel the sound quality of these will exceed any Bluetooth headphones on the market . [ William Blaine  May 30, 2018 ]
It received excellent reviews in sound quality and comfort. The prices is reasonable and the 2 year warrantee is important to me, I like a company that stands behind their product. Unlike Bose and Sony that have higher price tags with only a 1 yr warrantee. [ ThomasZ  Jan 28, 2018 ]
