Audio-Technica’s high-end open-back headphone, the ADX5000 builds off of classics like the AD2000 and AD2000X. This model uses newly developed Core Mount Technology to position the driver unit optimally within the housing and improve airflow efficiency. This helps the headphones reproduce highly transparent mids and highs, as well as rich, precise bass. The 58-millimeter integrated driver combines a tungsten-coated diaphragm, baffle, and Permendur magnetic circuit in a single unit to reduce unwanted vibrations and—since no screw clamps are required—decrease the weight. To optimize the listening experience, these headphones come with an upgraded B1XA/3.0 cable with a 4-pin connection. Specially made for ADX5000, this cable makes a perfect pairing for high-end balanced DAC/amp setups, which are great matches for the ADX5000.
In a five-star review, Head-Fi user earfonia says, “Audio-Technica did it again. The ATH-ADX5000 is a serious contender to other flagship headphones. Personally, I think it is more competent than the widely acclaimed Sennheiser HD800 and Beyerdynamic T1, which I consider a big achievement for any headphone. The ATH-ADX5000’s ability to resolve details brings HD audio recordings to the next level of auditory experience. It is one of the most revealing headphones I have ever tried. The large 58mm tungsten-coated-diaphragm driver is capable of delivering a realistic level of dynamics and detail rarely heard from other headphones in this price category. The ATH-ADX5000 deserves its place as a flagship reference headphone.”
