Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"I missed the airy feeling of having a pair of Audio Technica's floating on my head unrestrained."
_
"Yes, it sounds great for music, if not a little less fun than the A900X, BUT it has a problem positioning audio cues in game from about 5 to 7 O'Clock in the rear."
_
"I love these headphones, but I would not suggest you buy them without driving off to a Best Buy and trying them alongside the Audio Technica ESW9As and the AKG K550s."
_
"Being that my entry to the world of headphones was with Audio Technica, I honestly adore their house sound."
_
"Forgive me if I muddle some audio terminology here and there, but I'll try my best to describe what makes the A900X such an amazing sounding piece of kit."
_
"The audio quality is great and they are comfortable to wear."
_
"Well, I introduce you to the Audio Technica ATH A900x."
_
"I wish the cord was not hard wired in but fortunately, I have had pretty good luck with Audio Technica cords in general."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Comfort - I've read many comments stating they are uncomfortable, which worried me at first, because I'm 18 and would consider my head to be on the smaller side."
_
"Sound:At home I have a beloved pair of AKG K601's, which are outstanding in terms of comfort and sound, but hard to drive (I'm using a 1983 Technics receiver that does a startlingly good job compared to contemporary gear) and open, so only really suitable for a quiet environment."
_
"Very comfortable and I was able to wear them for hours on end."
_
"The audio quality is great and they are comfortable to wear."
_
"Comfort wise, they are impressive."
_
"Excellent sound quality and comfortable to wear during long listening sessions."
_
"Sound:At home I have a beloved pair of AKG K601's, which are outstanding in terms of comfort and sound, but hard to drive (I'm using a 1983 Technics receiver that does a startlingly good job compared to contemporary gear) and open, so only really suitable for a quiet environment."

Design

Design:
"The problem with these headphones is the wing design, so when I saw people commenting on their headphones sliding down their head or that the wings are not tight enough."
_
"If the ear design was just a little more comfortable, this would have five stars."
_
"well the wing design isn't optimal."
_
"I don't have problem with the wing design."
_
"Now, many people love this design-- I'm thinking that they have larger heads."
_
"There aren't many quality closed headphones on the market, the majority are of open design due to their supposed superior audio qualities."

Fit

Fit:
"My head is fairly large, so I can completely understand how people with smaller heads would have a problem with how these headphones fit."
_
"I've read about complaints with the fit on smaller heads, but my wife did fine with these, and she has a very small head."
_
"----------------------------------------------I've ready many people say they are uncomfortable, I disagree, they fit softly over my head and I couldn't be happier."
_
"I can confirm that slowly bending the headband worked WONDERS, and the A900X now fit me as well as my old AD700 did."
_
"I found that my ATH-700 fit me perfectly out of the box."
_
"It's bizarre that mutilating a part of the headphones achieves this perfect fit, but I'm not going to complain about it."
_
"I've heard that the paddles don't seem to fit most people, but for me it is good as I have a bit big head."
_
"With this slight modification, the A900xs fit me perfectly."

Music

Music:
"If you are looking to buy a high-quality closed back headphone for listening to music while commuting or just walking around, look elsewhere."
_
"weather for music, or gaming, these headphones sound fantastic."
_
"They are amazing, just amazing, screw the sennheiser 598, these are far far superior for every type of music besides heavy rock."
_
"Crisp bright clear highs, not tinny or harsh, perfectly blended music, with great balance and very wide soundstage."
_
"I used loops of pink, brown and white noise as well as frequency ranges and music that I listen to (classical, blues, gospel, folk, classic rock, classic rap, electronic, jam band, grunge, industrial, heavy metal, hard rock, alternative, r&b;, Motown, oldies, punk ect (when most people say they listen to everything they really don't."

Price

Price:
"The AD-900X is made in China, feels cheap and flimsy, and sports a nasty rubber cable and headphone jack."
_
"The plastic looks high quality, and far from cheap flimsy."
_
"The sound is balanced although I think sound stage could be better, but for the price can't complain!"
_
"For a ridiculously low price like 160 dollars, you almost have to, being that these do well when compared to other headphones twice their price."
_
"Price range these are absolutely well beyond their competition."
_
"Pros: Great sound, great price, pretty durable."

Quality

Quality:
"The plastic looks high quality, and far from cheap flimsy."
_
"Full rich mids that blend well and don't overpower but outstanding quality."
_
"I found the ATH-AD900s to have almost painful treble and the beyerdynamic's too hard to drive and with sound quality comparable to the ATH-M50s."
_
"While the ATH-A900X and AD900X share these qualities, the A900X has the added advantage of having amazing bass."
_
"The audio quality is great and they are comfortable to wear."
_
"I think the sound quality is great although you could search reviews and forums on other sites for references and comparison, but I can say that these are better than M50x and for the price is a no brainer."
_
"Great sound quality, definitely an improvement from my Grado's SR80"
_
"My pair was manufactured in Japan and build quality in general is decent with a long weave wrapped cable and screw on 1 8 to 1 4 adapter."

Sound

Sound:
"Stage sound is excellent and it competes which headphones costing more.. well which a good amp there sound even be a problem."
_
"Sound:At home I have a beloved pair of AKG K601's, which are outstanding in terms of comfort and sound, but hard to drive (I'm using a 1983 Technics receiver that does a startlingly good job compared to contemporary gear) and open, so only really suitable for a quiet environment."
_
"In terms of sound quality, all Audio Technica headphones sound amazing but the genuine problem with the A900X is their wings."
_
"Seriously though, great headphones when it comes to the sound, but if you have a big head you won't be able to move without them sliding off."
_
"I found the ATH-AD900s to have almost painful treble and the beyerdynamic's too hard to drive and with sound quality comparable to the ATH-M50s."
_
"Being that my entry to the world of headphones was with Audio Technica, I honestly adore their house sound."
_
"Forgive me if I muddle some audio terminology here and there, but I'll try my best to describe what makes the A900X such an amazing sounding piece of kit."
_
"If the HD 598 had the sound of the A900X, they would be my perfect headphones."
_
"If you're used to the more laid back sound of the HD 598 or the warm and fun X2, the A900X may be a bit too upfront for you."
_
"The sound stage of the A900X is very impressive for a closed headphone."
