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

Less than stellar reviews aside, the issue with these headphones isn't the price, or some twits winey SQ arguments--it's the damn missing active noise cancelation feature! Since that technology works, and because it does not detract from the headphones other function (ie listening to music without wires), it should now become a given for all BT headphones in this price range period, full-stop (as everyone says on TV these days). If not, sell the damn cans for $200! When you buy a car, you expect it come with tires and a half-tank of gas--it's a given. Going forward, everyone should expect their over the ear, $300-plus Bluetooth headphones to come with ANC--as they already do with Bose and Sony's highly rated, comparably priced products. And anyone who's going to stand here an tell me they don't want ANC on their BT headphones, and would never use ANC if it were on their headphones...deserves these headphones ;- )

ATH-DSR9BT sounds great but feel kinda bummed that I paid $340 in August 2019 for mine, only to discover 2 months later that it's now going for just $300. Feels like I've been penalized for buying earlier.

That's always how it works. I bought a Tesla Model 3 Performance a year ago for 18k more than it is right now

Yeah--and there are people in prison for smoking dope and now it's legal in Canada and half the States--how do you suppose they feel? And what about all the people who died of Black Plague before we figured out fleas and rats are a bad combination? And what about the dinosaurs? They never even knew what hit them!

Bought this for the sound quality and they don't disappoint. But rubber flap covering the USB port broke off on just my second recharge. Not a big issue but I'm surprised that it broke after opening the flap only twice. Anyone experienced the same thing? Any suggestions how to fix this or get a new flap?

Received mine 2 weeks back and using them at work all day. replacing my Sony MDR-1000X. Now for the people looking on replacement USB cable here a link from amazon.ca https://www.amazon.ca/Android-SURRI-Charger-Compatible-Smartphones/dp/B07Q6TPTRR/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=SURRI&qid=1568724799&sr=8-6 work without modification. Cable a little stiff but better then provided AT cable.

I have had these since their introduction in May, 2017. Paid the $549 and am not thrilled to see them at this price. Here's what you should know. They charge with a micro USB cable, but for some reason A-T made the connector just a bit smaller than the usual - I think they want purchasers to use the supplied cable only. Some reviewers have reported being able to use third-party cables. I managed to break the cable but received a free replacement from A-T under warranty. Service from A-T was excellent. The supplied accessories are the cable and a nice case. As they only accept digital signals, they do not work with the airplane systems that I have experienced. I suppose you could plug a small analog to digital converter into the plane audio to get a digital out, or stream from the plane system to your device if you were that determined. You can listen wired from a laptop using USB. Overall, I do not recommend them for use on a plane. The comfort and sound quality are excellent - very neutral. Not for bassheads or for people who like their music super loud. I would recommed for lovers of acoustic jazz and/or classical. Good for well produced rock - e.g. Mark Knopfler. The materials do not feel all that premium, but I have been using the cans nightly for two and a half years and they have held up quite well. Battery life has not been an issue for me, but I have never tested them. At this price they are very competitive if you do not need noise cancelling.

Would have jumped in if it was on USB C.

if there is no DAC do you just hear ones and zeroes? Or is this just marketing gibberish by someone who doesn't understand the technology. Digital audio sounds like a modem if you do not convert it into a voltage. It has no inherent information that a human ear can discern. (source, I mess with digital audio every. fricking. day.) I think what they are trying to say the DAC and BT are on one package. Or they are jumping on the resistor network bandwagon. Heck it, went and dropped a line on the product page. This is too intriguing for me not to know the answer.

but see, you have to infer a lot without anything to support it. It might be a duty cycle thing, using the transducer itself to smooth the rough edges of PWM square waves. Or it could be an integrated power amp and DAC, on one IC or set of ICs.

They are saying it's digital up to the coils, and that there isn't a DAC so I imagine those things are given. I'm not concerned about how many ICs there may or may not be, I am only making a case for how such a claim would be sensible without a ton of audible artifacts. In establishing plausibility, a few good guesses have value.

How does the headband clamping pressure compare to ATH-M50x (too tight for me) and AKG K553 (just right)?

Does anyone know what model brainwavz or dekoni upgrade ear pads the AUDIO-TECHNICA ATH-DSR9BT take?

I recommend the Brainwavz Micro Suede Oval Ear Pads. Generally speaking, they will increase sub-bass, decrease treble (slightly), and provide richer mids. Comfort is absolutely superb, with superior breathability compared to any leather or protein leather... and so soft, too!
