Believe it or not, after all this time as an audiophile-favorite, Audio-Technica is releasing its first Open-Back Reference headphone. Their ATH-R70x is a new flagship model and should be a much welcome addition for those seeking the purest audio quality for their home listening setups.
The ATH-R70x features specially designed 45mm drivers coupled with aluminum honeycomb mesh housings to give you that accurate, open-back sound. The headphones also feature dual-sided detachable locking cables that are signal independent so you always get the proper stereo orientation.
The ATH-R70x headphones are available for $489 at audio-technica.com.
