5.0 out of 5 stars Upgrade in comfort and clarity from ATH-ES9
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 May 2020
I've owned a pair of ATH-ES9 for nearly 9 years and I wanted something more comfortable for office/home listening.

Given my love for my ES9s I was only buying Audio Technica and I was looking for over-ear and closed-back for comfort and isolation. Personally noise cancelling makes me feel sick (similar to sea sickness) and I'm really not keen on charging a pair of headphone for bluetooth listening. These headpohones offer neither of these gimmicks.

Sure these headphone aren't the top of the range audiophile phones but also they're not break the bank expensive. I can use them all day and it's genuinely a pleasure to throw them on in the morning for a day at my computer and know I'm going to be in a bubble.

It was a bit of an adjustment coming from my ATH-ES9 of over 9 years but that's to be expected. I've always liked a kick in at the bass end which my ES9 gave me. These are more balanced and more crisp across the full range. They're super comfortable and easy to put on because of the auto adjusting fit from the paddles on top of you your head. If you're used to a smaller set of phones these are big, you're going to look like a try-hard in the office but also you probably won't be able to hear what they're saying about you so why care.

All in all super comfortable, a great balance across the range, affordable and the subtle metal green finish looks great.
