Manufacturer Description

The ATH-R70x is Audio-Technica's first pair of professional open-back reference headphones. Together with the ATH-M70x, they stand as a flagship model in A-T's professional headphone lineup.Featuring specially designed drivers and acoustically transparent housings fashioned from aluminum honeycomb mesh, these headphones provide an accurate and natural open-back sound. They also incorporate a new, improved design of our popular 3D wing support system to provide even greater comfort during the prolonged use often required in professional settings. Robust yet lightweight, and equipped with a unique, dual-sided detachable cable that automatically maintains proper stereo orientation (no matter how it's attached), the R70x headphones are built for lasting comfort, convenience and audio purity."The R70X have a character that might be described as 'scooped', but it's obviously different from that of the M-series 'phones. There's still a definite high-frequency lift, but on most material it manifests itself much more subtly as a soft, airy, understated presence rather than a brash treble boost. The bass is excellent: deep, clear and even, and slightly forward without ever sounding unbalanced or overpowering. The mid-range, meanwhile, seems pure and uncoloured, albeit slightly recessed and soft... Quite a few other high-end open-backed 'phones have similar just-on-the-scooped-side-of-neutral frequency responses: if not quite a smile curve, then a definite glint-in-the-eye curve
