ATH-W5000 Raffinato is one of the most detailed headphones, and their soundstage is really wide and three-dimensional. There are great reverberations (because of closed wooden cups), which are especially good for acoustic music and female vocals. Three words, which are most associated with their sound: airy, clear and detailied. ATH-W5000 has upward shift in tonal balance. They don't really lack of low frequinces, but they aren't bassy, especially in comparison with Denon AH-D7000 or Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro. The quality of Raffinato's lower frequinces is very good, but there may be lack of quantity. So, ATH-W5000 is definitely poor solution (considiring their 1000$ price) for metal and other heavy music. You should buy Denon AH-D7000 for it, or pay 500$ more and buy Ultrasone Edition 9. But for classical music, jazz and other kinds of acoustic music, ATH-W5000 is by far the best solution from all non-electrostatic serial headphones (from all dynamic headphones, excluding Sony MDR-R10, Sony Qualia 010 and ATH-L3000).

Like all headphones, this one too has a distinct sound, ie. it is not neutral. I find the W5000 to be the right balance between warm and neutral. The soundstage is very large, and all the details are present. I find that when listening to vocals, especially female vocals, or listening to a concerto, the solo instrument/vocals tend to stand out, making it harder to hear the details. It sounds very natural, but is a matter of preference. Additionally, the bass is not as pronounced as on other headphones--it is there, and very tight, but not overwhelming. I like it better than the Denon D2000, which is too cold and analytical. Compared to other ATH offerings such as the A900 and the ES7, it has a much wider soundstage, but the flavor of sound is pretty much the same. Basically, you are just getting more of the benefits of those headphones--more details, more soundstage, etc. I have used this with an Onkyo receiver hooked up to a Sony DVD player, and it sounds very good. It also works well with my Cowon D2, and also very well with my Sansa Clip, believe it or not. Basically, it has very low impedance, so I can listen to it at a fairly loud volume with my Clip volume set at 3/4 of max. Overall, a great headphone that gives you great enjoyment, even if you don't spend the extra thousand to buy an amplifier and DAC.

I have had these for just a few days now, and I have to say they are beautiful. They are the perfect closed compliment to my open AD2000, and I really can't wait to get my RA5000 amplifier back from servicing but they sound quite good out of my hybrid HiFiMAN EF5 as well. I highly recommend these for their clear as a bell "Audio Technica house sound". If that is your thing, the W5000 is a real treat to listen to. Like my AD2000, I had to stuff some surgical tubing behind the earpads to get the inside of the cup off of my ear physically, no biggie but that design flaw is the only reason these earned less than 5 stars.

I bought my Audio Technica ATH-W5000 "Raffinato" headphones from J&R Music World several months ago. These are the best headphones that I have ever owned. I am a member at Head-Fi.Org under my real name; I have written a longer review about my headphones. There is a distinct Audio Technica house sound so you have been forewarned. These headphones excel at reproducing classical, opera, female vocals, and acoustic music. They are very stylish and lightweight on my head. The fit and finish are impeccable. If you can afford these headphones and you have heard other Audio Technica headphones, then I would recommend these top of the line headphones. They are truly for collectors of high end audiophones.

I've been hunting for the best closed-back cans I can find that don't have the inherent cavernous sound that comes with closed-back headphones. I've tried everything from Denon (D2000/D5000/D7000), Fostex (TH600/TH900), JVC DX1000, Smeggy Thunderpants, as well as other Audio-Technica products (AD900x, W1000x, W3000 ANV), and I feel pretty confident in saying that these are the best I've heard. Granted, the Audio-Technica L3000s would be the holy grail but that's a little too much for probably 99% of people.

The main factor that separates these between similarly priced cans, such as, the Denon AH-D7000, Fostex TH600, and the W1000x is that there is just an added level of craftsmanship. The wood cups are nice, probably not that much nicer than the Denons or W1000x but you will know immediately after opening the shipping carton that a lot of thought and attention are given to these. The case for these isn't your typical hard wooden box or rugged plastic, but looks like a mini retro Samsonite luggage case. It's pretty cool to say the least. I think it's satin-lined but it could be some other material. Inside are the headphones as well as a little pouch for the headphone cable.

Enough of the aesthetics, the sound is really what I think puts these above and beyond the others. These cans really sound like semi-open headphones instead of closed-back. The low and mids are very clean, and distortion is minimal. The highs are also great, and I think these can benefit from a nice amp to really tighten the overall sound signature.

If you are looking for a closed-back can that doesn't compromise sound based on its design, these are pretty darn close. Not sure I would pay full retail price for them, but they're definitely worth it if you haven't found the perfect match yet.
