Considering how affordable these headphones are, we believe that for the sound quality that it delivers they are an amazing purchase. While they look really big and bulky they are actually quite light in weight and you will enjoy using them for a long time since they are durable and easy to use.

We got our hands on the headphones almost a year ago and they managed to work extremely well without giving us any problems. Since these headphones are affordable, they make a great investment.

We have to say that when we received these headphones we were in for a surprise. While the headphones look like they came out of the 1970’s, the performance was definitely top notch. In terms of its looks, they are not the best headphones you will get.

Since they are open back we would not suggest stepping out wearing these headphones unless you plan on doing it during Halloween. They are not the best looking headphones you will find and since they are open back people will also listen to the music. This makes it a little uncomfortable for those around you.




If you looking for headphones that deliver good quality sound with an airy feel, then this headphone is just what you need. Since these are open back headphones, you cannot expect any sort of noise isolation or even a noise cancellation feature. However that does not take away from the fact that the sound quality is clear and enjoyable. You will manage to differentiate the depth and distance between each musical instrument and the vocals will also sound very clear.

These headphones are great for bass music lovers and the melody is unmatched. If there are low frequency noises that you plan on eliminating, then you can always turn up the volume. The treble that these headphones offer can get a little harsh but it’s nothing you can’t get used to.

If there are loud noises around or you plan on wearing them while you travel then these headphones is not an apt investment since they are open back. Most people that look to get their hands on the Audio Technica headphones mainly look for the sound quality to relax at home and listen to good music.

We have to admit that while these headphones don’t look appealing to the eyes however they are extremely comfortable to wear. We don’t like something that feels heavy on the head or makes our ears uncomfortable and this is why these are the best headphones that one could get.

One of the best features about the Audio Technica ATH-AS700X headphone is not its design but its comfort level. They are extremely large and preposterous to look at but that doesn’t take away from the fact that we find it extremely comfortable.

The best thing about them is that they are completely airy and they allow a lot of breeze to pass through thereby making it a comfortable headphone. They are also very big in size which enables you to cover your entire ear. The sound quality these headphones deliver is amazing for open back headphones. You can feel all the dynamics and even if you want to crank up the music you are not going to feel uncomfortable in anyway.

The ear cups are extremely comfortable and they do not press down again the ears. While they look big, fat and bulky they are very light weight and it doesn’t feel heavy at all.

If you are looking for a stylish headphone, we wouldn’t advise investing in these headphones because they aren’t a piece of art. They look funny and are not stylish in any way. This is the reason they don’t get much brownie points when it comes to looks. However, if you are looking for something that is durable, then this is a great investment.



The headphones are easy to use and connect with multiple devices which makes it easy for you to invest in just one pair of headphones and use it for various reasons. One of the best things we find about these headphones is that they are extremely airy and if you are one of those people who tend to sweat a lot these headphones are perfect for you.

Although they are open back and lack the noise isolation or noise cancellation feature, it does not matter because it is not recommended wearing the headphones outdoors. If you are willing to overlook the fact that they lack noise isolation, you may actually grow very fond of these budget friendly headphones.

They say that first Impressions are the last and leave a lasting impact but that’s not always true. Our first impression for these headphones was not that great. However, after using it for a few days we actually realized that these headphones not only manage to deliver top-notch quality in terms of sound but they are one of the most comfortable headphones that we have come across.

While they look really heavy, the looks can be deceiving and these feel like a breeze to wear. We have watched movies with the headphones on and there have been no problems. Even if we have it on for prolonged hours we don’t feel any sort of discomfort.
As this Audio Technica ATH-AD700X review stated, the headphones come with an open back that allows a lot of sound to escape from the headphone. We would definitely recommend not turning the volume very high because this could disturb the people around you.

This has become one of our best companions, not only to watch movies and listen to music, but also when we are working. These headphones are so comfortable that we just play some really soothing instrumental music and not even realize that we have the headphones on.

While these headphones do lack in the looks department, they definitely gain a bonus when it comes to performance and durability. The ancient looking headphones will not disappoint you when it comes to comfort and sound output. Let’s face it; while looks are something that tend to impress others, it is the performance that matters.
