Product Description
The Audio-Technica ATH-DSR9BT is considered by many—including Head-Fi founder Jude Mansilla—to be one of the best-sounding wireless headsets on the market. It features the company’s Pure Digital Drive system, an exciting new development that allows the headphone to operate without the sound-degrading D/A converter that conventional wireless headphones rely on Read More

Only 2 issues (small, but annoying)
I love the sound that these produce. I've tried them with and Android, a PC, an iPhone and an Opus #2. All fantastic and no problems. I like bass and these have them, but not thumpy. The bass is there, but not overwhelming. Classical was great to listen to (Anne-Sophie Mutter, Bach: Concerto No. 1). Pop really sounded fun with wonderful vocals (Sam Smith & Demi Lovato, I'm Ready). But, the classic rock of Steely Dan and the Eagles was the stuff that I was surprised about. Really easy to listen to the various different instruments on Steely Dan that I hadn't heard before. So, issue #1, and the most annoying; The LED's on the left ear can blink every 5 seconds. In the dark it's distracting. Sitting outside at night on my deck I noticed that I can see the reflection of the blinking in my glasses. They are covered with tape now. Which is a pain because those lights will also tell you the battery level when you need to know. Issue #2, is the Mic. I didn't get these for the Mic, but it's terrible. The mic picks up every sound around you. I tested it on multiple devices and it's just not good. So, ignore the mic. Overall, I love the sound. I don't love the blinking LED's. I would recommend to a friend!

A great set of headphones, but an unusable microphone.
If you wan’t a truly great set of bluetooth headphones, these will not disappoint. But don’t expect to be using the built in microphone, it picks up as much, if not more of the surrounding environment, than it does you.

Great BT Headphone for Office
These replaced my Sony MDR 1000x for office use. I paired them with a A&K SR15 using Aptx-HD and they sound amazing. I’m not sure how some people find them bass lite because playing some electronic tracks bring the tight and well refine bass notes. They connect over BT every-time without missing a beat. I can wear them for hours without fatigue. The battery life is pretty good. I normally charge back once a week. I mostly listen to progressive rock, Jazz & acoustic rock with a bit of classical and I’m very happy with the quality of reproduction these AT give me. I have not tested the Mic but I this was not a priority.

Not even close to satisfaction ...
I am quite a cheap guy. When I pay $357.60 for a headphone that should be much much better than this. I have to use an EQ with this headphone. It is just a pull down in the lower end (from 128 Hz and lower), and sometimes a pull down at the higher end (16KHz and upper), but I cannot use that without EQ. That is not good. Because otherwise the bass thrashes and ruins everything in it. And there are something disturbing "scratchy" sounds at higher frequencies sometimes. And listening to metal or something energetic and bassy music the cymbals are rattling at the higher end like hell. You cannot EQ that out, because you ruin the top of the vocals ... (At least, I could not.) And its bluetooth range is significantly smaller than much cheaper ones. I cannot walk in the house with it, while I can easily with others. And the rubber cover of the charging socket broke down from the headphone at the goddamn second charging. Still it sounds nice with many tracks and mostly ... when it wants to ... :) So maybe one day I will use it on the go, or something like that ...

These sound glorious, if a little anemic in the bass department (the bass is tight and responsive, but light compared to other comparable cans imo). Excellent clarity and detail throughout the upper mids. The major problem is the microphone. Whenever anyone calls me, they can hear their voice echoed back to them at nearly full volume. It makes taking a phone call on these headphones nearly impossible without annoying the living hell out of anyone who calls. It kind of defeats the purpose of a convenient wireless Bluetooth set of cans to have an unusable microphone that requires me to remove them for a phone call, tbh.

Yeah, I was responding to someone saying something different, which appears to be edited out now. My point is that these are bad in the mic category and I tried them on all devices, not just an Apple device.

Mic wise. It sometimes depends on where the mic located. Just like a collar mic, if you really wear it near your collar and let chin stand in between with mic and mouth (right place is chest), it will sound bad regardless. Apple put mics on the bottom of the handle on airpods 2 (secret in their better performance), and removed it on airpods pro. You can search for comparison and see which sounds better, I would guess it is the 2. BTW, if you want to see apple's optimization you have to use beats since it is the only officially intregrated device on apple that doesn't carry an Apple logo. Beats BT products on Apple is even giving a different battery gauge indicator than any other 3rd party brands. Put a beats on apple and android and you will see the difference in software.

If user12 thinks they are "fantastic" (in bold), I wonder what user11 thinks of them?
