These un­usu­ally shaped head­phones are an au­dio­phile’s dream. Au­dio-Tech­nica’s first pro­fes­sional open-back ref­er­ence head­phones fea­ture an ex­clu­sive 45mm sound driver, a pure al­loy mag­netic cir­cuit, and ef­fi­cient mag­nets to de­liver re­fresh­ingly nat­u­ral sound, with crisp mid-tones, fine de­tails, no no­tice­able dis­tor­tion, and a fre­quency re­sponse from 5 to 40,000Hz. Their 3D wing sup­port de­sign is no good for porta­bil­ity but it dis­trib­utes their 210g weight so evenly you could for­get you’re wear­ing them. A hard case to pro­tect the car­bon com­pos­ite resin con­struc­tion would have been smart, but for the purest sound and com­fort the R70X head­phones are un­matched.
