Excellent headphones for a great price

About Me Gear Head
After reading reviews, I chose this is a (relatively) less expensive headphone that would have excellent sound and so far I haven't been disappointed. Very comfortable, excellent sound and good soundstage (ability to determine direction for individual components). Highly recommended.NOTE: The headphones take a while to "break in" and will sound better after initial use. I've heard a rough estimate of 40 hours of listening time is a good length but even after a few hours they started sounding better.
The Most Comfortable Headphones

About Me Audiophile, College Student, Gamer
These headphones sound great with both music and games. The soundstage on these is amazing and allows you to become completely absorbed in whatever you are listening to. I listen to all kinds of music and they work well with: hard rock, some indie rock, chillstep/study music, country, classical, some pop music, and classic rock. They come up lacking when listening to new rap, new pop with lots of sub-bass, and any metal harder than alt-metal.
So little spent to bring this much joy!

About Me Audiophile
I'm loving my Audio-Technica ATH-AD900 headphones! Incredible sound from everything they've been plugged into! The 900's are best for home use, as they are large, albeit light and extremely comfortable, open backs. Dollar for dollar, an absolute great buy!
Audiophile Quality Headphones
Best mid-range I have heard - warm and sweet. Trebles are clear and refined. Bass is a little weak but I compensated by stuffing cotton balls under the earpads (6 small round balls each, filling back half circle) and +1 bass boost on my Fiio E17. Big sound stage. Most comfortable headband I've worn - can listen all day long without strain. Best for songs with female/male vocals (Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Dixie Chicks, James Taylor, Bread etc) jazz, orchestra, soft rock, country. Probably not good for rap, R&B, electronic. I compared this against Sennheiser HD 600 and prefer this for its sound quality, at 1/3 the price. Sounds great both amped and unamped.
Great sound stage, perfect for gaming
from Los Angeles
I picked up these headphones to use with my MixAmp Pro 2013 Ed. The soundstage is amazing and provides plenty of feedback for gaming. Music quality is also amazing on these headphones. They are light on bass since they are a open back design and feature a flat eq. So if you are looking for bass heavy headphones likes Beats then you are in the wrong place. These headphones let you hear music the way it was intended and not distorted.
Great deal on reference quality sound
Words that comes to mind are transparent, detailed, neutral, articulate, and airy. There is a large expansive soundstage. It of course sounds like it is all in your head, but this is true of all headphone. The bass is there but not emphasized. Sounds great listening to 24 bit music. You can listen for hours without fatigue. Need at least 50 hours of burn-in. My new reference.

From $200.00 to $500.00 you will never find anything better .accuracy,very detailed and imaging.highs,lows and mids compliments each other. Most natural sounding cans I have ever owned.my senheiser hd 650 sound very distant and muddy compared to my audio technica ath-ad900,so when purchasing headphones just listen and compare first before purchasing.

from Wellford, SC
After listening to many headphones, the only headphones that I liked more cost more than $1000. The ATH-AD900's are a tremendous value.
