Equipped with Hi-ENERGY neodymium magnets for improved transient response, the ATH-P5 is engineered to provide excellent sound quality for portable audio, video games, computers and home stereo in a lightweight, affordable package. These open-back dynamic headphones feature cushioned ear pads, adjustable headband and lightweight design for long-lasting comfort.
This review is from: Audio-Technica ATH-P5 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Supra-aural Lightweight Dynamic Stereo Headphone
Pros: I wasn't expecting a whole lot from a pair of phones this cheap, but these sound a great deal better than my $50 cr3a71ves! These especially shine when it comes to mid-high range clarity. Listening to guns & roses, I notice that I was missing out on strings and even some drum kicks and cymbals. Gorillaz, anything synth comes through absolutely crystal. They weigh close to nothing, sometimes I forget I'm wearing them. Also, they can get freakin' LOUD without distorting.
Cons: The bass is defined, but not very strong. But for the price and design, its good. Zero sound canceling might be bad for people working in a noisy environment. These are my first set of open cans, and the trade off is a very pleasant airy effect. Cord is a little short (looks like 3 ft.) but I had an extension laying around.
Other Thoughts: The ear pads aren't necessarily bad, but I ripped them off and took the cuffs off of my old phones, glued those bad boys on, and now they are some of the most comfortable phones I've ever had. (albeit they look silly now)
