Does anyone else have an issue with one of the drivers making crackling sounds and loud pops?

Yeah.. I'm not surprised. If you google a bit you'll find that it's a common problem with the W-series. Try the typical suggested 180 hour burn-in. If the popping noises don't go away, you have a bad driver.

Things to improve: Remake with detachable cables and normal fake pleather headband and you'll have a winner. The ear "wings" are barely strong enough to hold up the AD900x, they will not do these wood headphones justice. Also, offer more wood types.

I'm a W5000 and an AD2000 owner. I'd say instrumentals--the W5000 is king. For vocals, the AD2000 can't be beat (not even by its successor, the AD2000X). Audio-Technica has a house sound, but there's a reason they're so coveted. If you're a M50x user, this is a completely different animal being offered here, so I wouldn't let impressions muddy what these will be like. :) Y'all got my 10/10 recommendation!

I've had a pair of W5000 for many years. I bought it on sale for around $800 at the time. It is not a versatile headphone and it is ill fitting. I kept it though. Why? It is the best headphone I have ever used for classical music. It doesn't sound good with metal, rock, punk, etc. etc. I really only whip it out when listening to Classical music and it doesn't disappoint. If you have money to burn and want the best possible Classical music headphones, this is it!

It is really frustrating to figure out what items are covered by warranty on massdrop, just not consistent.

For anyone getting the w5000 and finding the fit odd: Try the Dekoni A/AD sheepskin pads with attenuation rings. The pads themselves form a more consistent seal around the head and the attenuation rings will ensure the sound is as close to stock possible (just swapping the pads will increase midbass and muddy up vocals; the rings fix this). Spent a year trying to crack the comfort and sound code on the W5000 and came to that as my final conclusion. Alternatively, if you want a fun alteration to W5000, try ZMF eikon suedes. Makes the W5000 sound darker and wider.

I wish Audio-Technica would go back to using red cherry wood. These look good, but to me they don't come close to matching the W1000 (not W1000X or W1000Z) and W2002, which are still what I consider to be the most beautiful headphones I've ever seen. It's one of the reasons that I can't help but love my W1000s despite the acoustics being objectively ill-suited to a fairly wide range of music (the bass is just noticeably weak compared to almost any other headphone, even for someone like me who is as far from being a basshead as can be). And now I really want to track down a pair of W2002s...
