Striking Wood Cups, Large Dynamic Drivers

Considered two of Audio-Technica’s most stunning designs to date, the W1000Z and W5000 headphones feature ear cups made of pure teak and striped ebony wood, respectively. The company’s 3D Wing system ensures a stable, comfortable fit, while the wood cups look beautiful and provide superb acoustic characteristics to boot. The eleventh generation of Audio-Technica’s prized “W” Series, the W1000Z delivers a warm, resplendent sound with thick, natural lows. Meanwhile, the W5000—nicknamed the Raffinato, Italian for “refined”—is rich and detailed. In both models, the 53-millimeter dynamic drivers benefit from the Double Air Damping System, which brings deep bass reproduction. Finally, the cable’s elastomer sheath prevents tangles. 

Note: At checkout, choose the ATH-W1000Z (base) or the ATH-W5000 (+ $170). 

Praise for the W5000 Headphones
  • “Our first impression is of a spacious, clear presentation and that opinion doesn’t change with extended listening. These are one of the few closed-back headphones that can stand toe to toe with their open-backed alternatives." What Hi-Fi
  • “On the matter of soundstage, the ATH-W5000 paints a very wide, tall, and deep canvas to showcase the musicians. Within that expansive soundstage comes precise imaging that is spot on. Each musician and instrument occupies its own airy space.” – Head-Fi
  • “With the A-T 5000s, your initial impression is of balanced warmth. They sound like transparent headphones, with good macro balance … bass, midrange, and treble are present in about the right amounts. I would add that the 5000s have what I've described in the past as an ‘n’-shaped perceived response: low bass and upper treble are reduced and midrange is slightly emphasized.” – Hi-Fi Plus
