Audio-Technica's ATH-W100 wooden headphones were among its most popular models. Now, those phones have been revamped into the ATH-W1000, sure to carve their own niche in the audiophile market. The closed back, Double Air Damping System (D.A.D.S.) provides solid bass reproduction, while the faux-leather ear pads with wooden cups are comfortable and look beautiful as they isolate your ears from outside noise. Compatible with SACD playback for the ultimate sonic experience.
Known for their comfort, Audio-Technica's ATH-W1000 is no slouch in the sound quality department, improving on the qualities of earlier models. While featuring a closed design which isolates you slightly from the outside world, the large body, wood shell and high price tag makes the W1000 a poor option for travel or listening on the go. Rather, it is much better suited for use in a quieter environment for things such as gaming, watching tv or listening to music.
