I am looking for an amp to drive a2000z and I hope the price is below $300. Is there any good recommendation? Someone recommended sustain84 to me, but I hope to find a cheaper one.
I owned these briefly when they came out in Japan 2 years ago - loved the clarity and high resolution - liked much less the missing lower bass tones. Not suitable for Hip Hop or Electronic music at all. The red A1000Z, even though missing the high-res feeling of its bigger brother A2000Z, is almost perfect. Bass reproduction was pretty accurate while the rest of the specter was beautifully flat.

I own A2000z and I do agree completly with this. The A2000z don't have bass , but really good clarity and high resolution in the mids and high .

Almost all Audio Technica high-fidelity line of headphones seem to be treble happy/bass light with a few exceptions
Someone at AT really loves their treble
Does this headphone have removable cables?
Eloiro7
Nope
mahee
Thanks, pass on these if not removable.
How are these compared to the opened-back Air series, in terms of the highs and imaging/sound stage? I bought an AD1000x recently, I love it. But, now I'm tempted to return them and get this instead.

closed 'a' series also sound very open. Not as open as the open 'ad' series, but still close
i own a990z and its a very dynamic sounding phone, and quite a bit fun to listen to
It's the same price at B&H Photo with free shipping too if you don't want to wait.

Isn't that used condition?
mahee
Yeah my bad, B&H shows the used version in Google results with no indication that it's used. Only on the page itself in tiny print does it say "Used" condition. Bit of a shady practice in itself.
I wish Dekoni would make pads for this line of headphones, currently only Audio Technica themselves to and their pads touch my ears too much. I solved that by stretching Brainwavz pads and putting them on but they don't always stay on

@FrostyP Thanks for the great idea! We were able to work with Dekoni to have these made. The live drop can be seen here: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/dekoni-premium-earpads-for-audio-technica-a-ad
Love the open airy sound on the lower priced models in this line. Beats headphones costing 3X the price. These phones are the upper end of the product line and all I can say is if they sound better than the ATH-AD500X's which I am sure they do, these must be great cans.
Waiting for 1000z to drop
mahee
Seconded. We want the ath-1000z!
here is my buyers guide dont get this if you like neutral sounding. get this if you like Metal, specially get THIS if you like weebshit.

Thanks for the buyers guide I love weebshit
I kinda wish Massdrop would offer some of their wood series headphones. This is a little to bling-y for my tastes.

Still gotta agree w Vince's wish though... AT's wood cups are ~gawjuss~
So are you happy with these?
I don't find the look very appealing. Not sexy but looks sturdy.

I own around a dozen headphones including the usual shit hd 600,m1060, lcdx,he400i/s not showing off just so you know I have a point of reference, and this are definitely on my favorite list and the reason is because they have personality I want to hear all my music trough them because they are not as perfect as lcdx but they are different than evrything else they have fantastic if somewhat very elevated highs but dont sound sharp. would I recommend them to someone buying 1 set of high end headphones? probably not, the atached cable sucks! but if you are somone who is bored with the whole neutral headphones thing and evrything has to be a loyal reproduction of the track then this are for you. tldr they have flaws but is the sort of flaw that makes you love something kind of like an old dog.

Thank you
I have open back version, it is super comfortable to wear, just need swap the pads.
The sight of these makes me regret missing the Ath 1000 drop a month ago.
