Rearch: I bought my daughter some black Beats Solo 3's for her birthday from Costco and of course she wanted another color from Best Buy so I decided to keep the black ones. After listening to them for a week or so I really found them uncomfortable and the sound was not great. My ears sweated and the bads "stuck" to them. The sound was nothing to note. Kind of flat. Admittedly, I am using my Samsung S7 for a source. I returned them.
I then picked up the Bose On Ear Wireless Soundlink headphones. They are comfortable and very compact. That said, they do feel a little like ear muffs as they really do sit on your ears and have foam in the center. I kept playing with the settings on my phone trying to get more separation out and vivid sound out of them. They just sound muddy as some others have described.
So, after watching the documentary on The Avett Brothers I noticed they use Audio Technica in the studio shots. I tried to find a retailer that carried the SR5BTBKs locally. No luck. I ordered them on Friday night and they showed up this morning. Testing so far: with high res setting on my phone for audio: Diana Krall (various songs), Pink Floyd, Khalid (off my daughter's playlist - this kid Khalid is really good), Wes Montgomery, Neil Young and some Dave Brubeck. Listened to the same music with corded hook up as the directions say that is the way to get high res. Bounced back and forth between the Bose and the AT's. The result: The Audio Technica blow the Bose (and for that matter the Beats) off the map. Even though they are on ear, they almost hug your ear instead of pressing against them. Very comfortable and not "ear muff like" like the Bose. They are not as compact as the Bose really fold in and these just turn to lay flat. I think there is more sound leakage than the Bose but not much. Sound w and w/out blue tooth: Bright, vivid, nice separation but also have a sound stage. The Bose almost sounded like a mono recording which is fine if that is what the source music was recorded. Some say the AT's are too bright. I disagree, they are vivid. Do they have bass? Yes, Khalid sounds great. They just reproduce the music like it was recorded. You just notice things that you didn't on the others. On Wish You Were Here, you hear all the sniffing and moving by David Gilmour but then you also hear his fingers changing position on the strings. Not changing between chords but actually moving on the strings to get in position.
I am very happy with these. I think the ultimate stamp of approval is that I just keep reaching for these to listen to another song. The Bose sat on my desk for weeks. Also, my wife put them on for about 10 seconds after listening to the Bose - same song from Diana Krall, put them down and said "those sound much better, I hope you still have the box for the Bose so you can return them"
Listening-wise, these are quality headphones in line with what I'd expect from Audio-Technica; they are solidly built, as far as headphones go, and quite light. The earpads are soft but do not cover/wrap around your entire ear, so if you're looking for the physical noise barrier you get with studio headphones, you won't really be finding it here. That said, they do block some noise and are comfortable.
The Bluetooth is easy to set up and pair with a first device (especially if you read the instructions). Once you add other devices, it can be a little difficult to make sure the right device is selected/paired...this is pretty common with my experience with these kinds of devices and is inherent, I'd guess, with having a really simple user interface. Sound quality is good with Bluetooth, and I give the designers extra props for allowing a traditional plug-in option...it really irks me when those kinds of details are left off, and in this case a perfectly usable pair of headphones could be rendered useless with, for example, my old iPod classic. Battery life is impressive--supposed to be 30 some odd hours and I am still going strong off my initial charge.
I did contact Audio Technica customer service--after less than 2 weeks of gentle, indoor, home use, the earpads started wearing through and splitting in the area where their sleeve slips around the plastic of the phones (see photo). There is a 2-year warranty on the phones, and after contacting customer service with a photo and my information I received a response in less than a day and replacement pads in less than a week without needing to send the phones in. Kudos for good customer service!! Although, it's not super inspiring that part of the phones wore out through so little use. I am cautiously hopeful that the more important components will hold up a little better but will update if anything catastrophic happens.

I've had these Headphones now for over three months, I have purposely not written a review when I first got them as they definitely didn't sound like my old headphones (AKG-K451),
bearing in mind that 'different' does not mean bad or worse, I wanted to give them a chance to run-in and prove themselves.
With daily use of about 2 hours of music a day these headphones took 2 weeks to really start to sound good and after a month the sound difference is noticeable.
After using these headphones for many types of music and sound (Pop, Rock, Classical, TV Audio, Death Metal, Jazz etc) over the past three months, generally they give good detailed sound although Bass can lack in some areas. However, the Bass that does exist is well controlled and, for the most part, this can be remedied by putting the Bass up a notch on the equalisation.
Detail of small noises is good Lady Gaga's Artpop have some nice edges to the echoing notes. TV sound is surprisingly good and the channel separation is excellent. I was actually surprised when a piece of piano was being played in the distance to one side and, for a second, I though that the our computer was playing piano music
Sound is very clear tracks like Nightwish's 'Ever Dream' sound energetic and not muddled. Classical music such as Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker - Waltz of the flowers are particularly good, small noises and movement on instruments like the Oboe can be heard. Death Metal also sounds very good with these Headphones, the detailed notes and guitar sounds can be heard over the general 'drudging' over driven guitar. Albums like Edge of Sanity's 'Crimson' sound great, and for me have been given a new lease of life.
It is worth pointing out that these are High-Gain Headphones, to get the best out of them, if you have a High-Gain option for your headphone jack on your system them try switching it on.
If not then you may need to turn the volume up. Due to this discovery, I also upgraded the cable and purchased a 29AWG gage cable via Amazon (Sinmova MPS X-7 Eagle 5N OCC Cable)
I am fortunate enough to have several pairs of headphones around the house which I can use to compare and contrast. Generally, these sound better than my AKG-K451, the actual sound quality is better, the AKGs sound good (good range) but sound can get muddled on some tracks and the detail of sound can be lacking.
While these Headphones sound great they are obviously not at the level of AKG-Q701 or AKG-K702 (with cable upgrade), which have superb sound but are open back.
However, for myself I find that these are actually a lot better than Beats Solo3s, the ATH-SR5 have more detailed sound and the do not have the boomy muddled Bass of the Beats.
1: Cordless is a must - I can't stand having a cable getting caught on collars / zips.
2: I wanted something which had decent sound volume (I'm not an audiophile, so was less concerned about super crystal sound quality).
3: I also wanted something that would allow me to make the occasional call.
These headphones cover the first two, but are let down by the third.
They're very comfortable, and don't get too hot on your ears. The trick is to ensure they're extended well, so they fit loosely over your ears. The sound volume is good - plenty high enough to hear when commuting, although it is of course dependent on the volume of the source (phone or whatever). One real plus point is the battery life - it's great. Advertised as about 38 hours, I haven't tested it to that extreme but I can certainly have moderate daily use for a good three or four days without it running out of battery. Shame there's no indicator other than a low battery light (with no idea how much time / charge is left)
A minor downside is its handling of bluetooth - it's not particularly easy to switch between devices, as it only seems to remember what ti was last paired with. It also doesn't always reconnect with your device if you go out of range and then come back. You often end up having to switch the headphones off and then on again to reconnect.The sync is good though - watching movies on a phone is fine, no sync issues that I could notice.
That aside, the only real negative point with them is the microphone quality. When on calls, I can hear the caller perfectly, but everyone says I sound like I'm underwater when speaking to them. Unsurprising when the mic is just a single tiny hole next to the headphone jack.
Other than that, they're a great set of headphones that allow comfortable listening for days.
- I liked the controls, which are sensibly laid out and feel solid. They aren't going to snap off
- In a quiet environment, these cans sound really good. The top end is crisp and exciting (without being too harsh, in a Sennheiser way) and the mids, whilst being a little honky for my personal tastes in the female vocal range, were clear. Bass is well-defined but quite light compared to most modern cans of this price range. In a quiet room I found this really good, but on a noisy train platform, I couldn't hear my music.
- Fit is comfy and the cans are understated and low-profile, which is what I wanted.
- Bluetooth performance was solid, no connectivity issues with my iPhone 6S
- Sadly the lack of noise-cancelling and lighter low end sound makes these not a good choice for being out and about in noisy environments.
Over Bluetooth they are empty of Bass to mid using a Sony NWA-45 source yet with iphones they sound very balanced (not quite as sharp) and go louder than wired but the sound clarity does not sparkle like when they are wired, unfortunately the speakers and Sony walkman have no equaliser to compensate.
The headphones come alive at higher volumes and need to be driven to get the best from them.
I have not listened to similar priced headphones, so I do not know if I am being over critical, but I did not expect the tizz/ distortion.
I do not hear distortion on my home surround Denon AVR-X2000 with Qacoustic Q7000i speakers!
I bought these as i wanted to use bluetooth set in my office to handle phone calls. But i wanted them also to be good quality in-case i wanted to take them around for music as well. So easy option i went for the same brand in my price point.
They sound OK but not as nice as my wired pair.
They are very comfy.
They look great
Good build quality
you cant easily switch between devices, its a horrible pain. I mostly use on my iphone , but when i wanted to watch a movie on IPAD, i have to disable bluetooth on Iphone, and they attempt to connect about 20 times with my IPAD to the headphones , this has happended every time and i dread to have to do it.
Reviews say the AKG headphone are good at same price point, i may get a pair of these to compare. I trusted
