A flagship model in Audio-Technica’s line of professional studio headphones, the ATH-R70x is lightweight but robust, with an open-back design and a dual-sided detachable locking cable. Its sleek, modern look is complete with a matte black finish, made in collaboration with Paris-based ARRO Studio. Fashioned from aluminum honeycomb mesh, the housings provide acoustic transparency, while the breathable fabric ear pads and improved wing support offer long-wearing comfort. As for the sound? One Head-Fi reviewer praises the “very natural tonality” and “almost ruler-flat tonal balance,” and says that, within its price range, the “ATH-R70x deserves five stars.”
Note: Due to this headphone’s 470-ohm impedance, we commend using a high-powered DAC and amp combination to achieve the best sound quality.
