WARNING
I wrote this review for the Audio-Technica ATH-A700 which has since been discontinued, *not* the newer ATH-A700x model. Amazon seems to have just carried over my review when the product was updated. So any differences between the two models are not accounted for so take this review with a big grain of salt! There...you've been warned! ;)

SUMMARY
With excellent sound fidelity and a wide sound stage these are a great pair of headphones for the price (current street around $120 US). My only quibbles come from the mechanical design of the headset which leads to unwanted sounds when listening at low volume levels. If subtle extraneous sounds don't bother you, then they may be perfect for you.

PROS
Excellent sound quality - Extremely wide soundstage, clear instrument separation and strong, but clean bass.
Extremely comfortable - Very little pressure around the ear and the headband system doesn't have any hot spots.
Great cord - Long cord allows for some mobility and the woven fabric sheath doesn't transmit sound when bumped.

CONS
Mid-range lacking - May sound like equalizer is on "U" shape. Not as "smooth" as the Sennheiser HD-280.
Noisy headband - Creaking sound transmits through headband system into the ear cups. Fine if you keep still, but when you move around you may hear creaking sounds.
Poor insulating pads - Foam ear pads with thin covering don't insulate outside sounds well and actually create sound when you move.

FULL REPORT
I wanted a pair of headphones to use while at the office to help block out outside sound while listening to music.

The Sound: For me, these headphones took quite a while to break in and warm up. At first, I had the bass cranked up and the treble turned down. The sound was very clean and sometimes to sharp/bright. After about 40 hours, I have the bass/treble both centered and a virtually flat equalizer. These headphones are exceptionally versatile. I listen to a wide range of music and game. They can handle to dirty grunge of metal guitar, the ultra distortion of NIN, and be very light and acute with symphonies. With as much as I listen to music with headphones (can't blast music with roommates all the time), I should have bought these earlier. After breaking in, I don't have to adjust my equalizer between genres, these headphones always sound good. The crystalizer from my x-fi sound card also helps liven things up--especially when gaming too.

The look: From the pictures, the headphones look really round, that is not the case. The blue flake paint on the sides is also much darker, almost black, compared to the pictures.

Comfort: These headphones feel very light when wearing them. Each cup forms to your head independently. Only the two upper wires connect them, a 90 degree rotated picture would do this product some good.

It is said that to get the equal quality sound from speakers you have to spend 10 times what you would on headphones. This set retails for $299 and I believe you would have to spend about $3000 to get a speaker system that sounds as good. I owned the Airtight Dynamic Monitor Stereo Headphones and Sennheiser PX 100 Collapsible Headphones before upgrading to the ATHA700s. I have the ATHA700s for about a year. What a joy they are to use! The fit is wonderful, although they do get hot. The earcup covers your ear and drowns out most outside noise. They are very comfortable and I have a large head. The earcup cushions are very soft. The linen covered cord is classy. The blue paint looks lighter in the photos here, mine are like midnight blue with metallic flecks. I listen to both movies on my laptop and VBR mp3s with them and hear things that I never did before. The bass is there, crip, and not overbearing. High notes are clear without distortion. You will hear details in songs you have been listening all your life that you didn't know existed. I use it with the TURTLE BEACH Audio Advantage Micro which seems to bring out even more detail. I have never heard better sound anywhere. Buy a set, you won't regret it!

How do I start this great review:
I should probably say that when I first received theses headphones I almost returned them. That was because I'm a part time DJ of West Coast Swing and Hustle Music. I needed a pair of cans that allowed me to hear the music even when the dance floor was flooded with sound. Noise canceling head phones don't do a thing for drowning out other loud music, but these over-the-ear head phones would. So I ordered a pair of ATHA8700.

When they arrived, I was a little surprised. They weren't good for DJing at all. They were enormous (the cans / ear-cups wrap entirely around the ear) and there was no way to fold them up and transport them. I immediately ordered a pair of Pioneer HDJ1000.

As I awaited for my new Pioneer headphones, I started using the ATHA700s with my computer and for my home stereo and portable MP3 player to listen to music. I was overwhelmed by the quality of sound, the comfort and overall fullness of everything I listened to. It felt that I wasn't just listening to the band/orchestra, I was surrounded by the music.

Don't get me wrong, these aren't surround-sound headphones....they're just so good that they capture all the nuances of the music as if you were playing in the band or the conductor of the orchestra.

The fact is that these headphones impressed me so much that I couldn't bare to part with them. At the end of the day, I use my Pioneers for the DJ booth and parties, and I use my ATHA700s for everything else.

Sound Quality: 10/10
Comfort: 10:10
Portability: 3/10
