I think that I most often use the Audio Technica ATH-AD900. They are open back phones. I don't often listen to rock. If that was my primary source for music, I might rely on the Grado's more often. They are fabulous for rock.
The ATH-AD900 have wonderful treble and midrange. The bass is certainly there, but it is not prominent. These have good bass, but it is not the primary feature. By way of comparison, the Bose tri-port and earbuds are very bassy sounding to the point where the bass sounds muddy to me. For the price of the Bose tri-port, you could have the Sennheiser 280 or the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 or ATH-A700. To me any of these choices would be far better than the Bose tri-port which also appears to be more cheaply made. The separation and detail on the instruments is wonderful. I mostly listen to instrumental music.
The sound stage is large. They sound like you are close to the source of the music, but there is a very small sense of space. The headphones ae comfortable. The headphones earpieces are covered with velour pads. My entire ear (big ears) fits in the enclosure, so they do not rest on my ear.Read more ›
Layout: There is a "Build" and "Sound" section in this comparison. The build section covers both headphones in their physical form and the sound section obviously covers the headphones sonically. At the beginning of the two sections, there is a "Top 5" listing. This is a general run down of what is to find in the upcoming paragraphs. In those paragraphs, I will go into more detail on all five of those points. And at the end of the review will be a sum up of individual aspects between these two headphones.
Tip: For a quick read -- Just read each of the five points in both of the sections. This comparison has been built around those ten points. Reading them will summarize this entire review.
5 reasons AD900 is superior to AD700 in build:
1 - The frame is made out of magnesium instead of plastic.
2 - There is absolutely no creaking or strange frame sounds.
3 - It weighs 30 grams less and is one of the lightest in class.
4 - It is physically smaller and has a bit more clamping force.
5 - All black color looks far superior to purple and champagne.
1 - I remember when I first received the AD900 on a cold morning. As I pulled it out of its box, I noticed it was very cold to the touch.Read more ›
These headphones are very durable and very handsome. Obviously they are only meant for at-home use, but I've never managed to scratch them. They are also pretty easy to drive without a dedicated amp. Even my mp3 player and PCDP get nearly the most out of them. If you want a detailed and thoughtful set of headphones for not a whole lot, the AD900 is a good choice. If bass is your main thing, though, you might consider something else.

Great headset, however they no longer produce sound out of the right ear.
I've used them VERY lightly over the last two years. Maybe, once a week, if that. Read more

The cord is plenty long.
They need power. Read more
