Comparison Review: ATH-A9X, ATH-A900X, AKG K550

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1. My Audio Preferences:

-I listen to mostly new age and orchestral pieces, so natural/realistic instrument presentation and strong vocal performance is important to me (good timbre).

-I like rich and lively sound presentation. So warm, pronounced mid-range; clear, sparkly, but unoffensive treble; and tight, controlled bass (that isn't overly loud).

-I dislike over-abundance of bass. My ears are very sensitive to bass; headphones with bass-emphasis make my ears uncomfortable very quickly and gives me a headache after a while (to put things into perspective, the Superlux HD668b is considered bass-heavy by me).

-I've been a long-time Audio-Technica owner, because their traditional sound signature is very much in-line with what I like: Rich, full-bodied, warm and engaging, with an emphasis on mids. The treble and bass presentation are typically pleasant and unoffensive on the AT's that I've tried. Aside from its narrow soundstage, my old ATH-A9X has always been my absolute favorite for music listening.

2. Reason for Choices & Purchases:

While I love my ATH-A9X, I have been looking for a worthy upgrade that will improve upon its main weakness - the narrow soundstage (as well as having just a bit more substance in the bass region - the A9X is pretty bass-shy). After some research, I narrowed it down to two cans: The Audio-Technica's own ATH-A900X, and the AKG K550. Both of these are hailed as having very expansive soundstage for closed-cans, and both supposedly have a warm, "musical" presentation. They are reported to sound fairly similar to one another, according to several Head-Fi'ers.

In terms of the sound quality of the A900X, you probably can't get better sounding headphones in the $200 price range.

Prior to buying these headphones, I was using the Sennheiser HD280 Pros for a good year. I hated those cans and after doing many hours of research on the head fi forums, I decided to try my luck and upgrade to the A900X. I must say, I made the right choice! The A900X destroys my old cans in every way possible.

I noticed significant night and day changes to the sound I was listening to when I put on these cans when compared to my HD280s. I heard high end details like the crash of cymbals and airy vocals that I never heard of from my old cans. The bass on the A900X was tight and alive (but not muddy and overpowering), unlike my HD280s which had very weak bass that made music lack a certain kind of fullness. The mids on the A900X is quite rich, making guitar, drums and vocals truly pleasurable to listen to. My HD280s had honky mids that I had to lower using an equalizer. And of course, the sound stage on the A900X is incredible considering that these are closed cans. The sound stage is wide and you can clearly distinguish the positions of the different instruments and vocals from one another. My HD280s had practically no sound stage and sounded rather congested. I don't game but I imagine it would be awesome with the A900X; movies and videos are also excellent to sit through thanks to the sound stage of these cans.

These cans definitely need to be burned in for maybe 50-100 hours in order to get the best sound. They still sounded awesome when I first got them, but I could hear some sibilance. That sibilance has since gone away after the burn in.

this is my 2nd round with the a900x. I had originally purchased one used and foolishly sold it after a year, thinking I could do better for the price (srh840, which i hated). i regretted selling them immediately, so when i saw the Japanese import model price dip into the $120's, i had to get them.

summary: the overall sound signature is mid-centric and slightly warm. bass is decent (mid level impact with good extension), highs are sparkly and energetic, and mids are some of the best I've heard under $400. overall detail resolution is good, especially compared to sub $200 headphones. soundstage is awesome for a closed headphone. the soundstage is VERY wide, with decent depth. it's easy to drive, and is built really strong. the 3d wings are not the greatest for fit/comfort, but easily remedied by a rubber band. overall just a killer headphone considering it's price. it's a shame this model doesn't get the recognition it deserves. i find it leagues better than the similarly priced m50x.

ok lets get into the finer details! keep in mind I'm mainly reviewing them in the $200 realm, unless i specify otherwise. if i say something is excellent, it's excellent compared to other headphones up to $200, so dont say something like "the hd800 has excellent highs, the a900x highs are junk". of course the $1500 hd800 will have superior sound quality!

i run my headphones all day at work from a pc to a schiit modi dac and magni 2 uber amp. my source is spotify premium streaming service (320kbps mp3 quality). i tend to listen loud, and am somewhat treble/bass sensitive. hot/sibilant highs fatigue me very fast, as does highly impactful sub bass (example dt770). i listen to just about anything and everything that isn't rap or country.

highs - excellent!
