With huge realistic sound and a boldly crafted design, the ATH-W1000Z Audiophile Closed-Back Over-Ear Headphones have been designed to provide you with the ultimate hi-fi listening experience. These luxury headphones focus on delivering audio that rivals anything open-back headphones produce without sounding airy, whilst maintaining a large soundscape that mirrors a live environment. Reproduced Live Sound As opposed to your standard closed-back headphones, the ATH-W1000Z reproduces a large, clear soundscape that you'd normally find in open-back headphones. Read more… The resonant wood cups and aluminium housing present warm, resplendent audio, aided by the wood's ability to reflect natural sounds, producing sound that extends upwards as well as outwards. Considering these factors and their ability to sound big, yet not completely airy, these headphones will give you a sense of being present during a live performance. Maximum Style & Comfort The pure teak wood housing of the ATH-W1000Z nods an appreciation to the Maestro-series heritage, emanating a nostalgic natural design. The heavily padded and spring loaded arcs rest on either side of your head, providing a sturdy fit minus the pressure points that cause discomfort on your head, whilst the slightly angled drivers sit in line with your ear cups for direct listening. High-Resolution Audio With 53mm drivers you will find a sound that is more driven with more depth and increased efficiency, providing your tracks with a better all-round sound. The drivers also develop nuanced sound reproduction due to the high-quality bobbin-wound OFC-7N voice coils that provide the motive force of your music. Double Air Damping System The ATH-W1000Z produces bass that pummels its way through tracks, without becoming dominant, thanks to the exclusive D. A. D. S (Double Air Damping System) housing structure. The pure teak housing of the earcups possesses the ability to reflect thick, natural bass sounds that add further depth to your music. Resonance Reduction With its 3D wing support and the lightweight magnesium frames, these headphones are able to reduce unwanted resonance from spilling into your mix as you move around, giving you clearer and more comfortable listening experience. Tangle-Free Cables The 3. 0m dual-sided, four-core parallel cable is crafted with a thermoplastic elastomer sheath to help prevent the annoying habit of tangling wires.
