I had ath 50’s before, so i have comparison between these two, and it’s quite often question if ath 70’s are worth extra. If you’re expecting great sound, with rich bass and treble, and you’ll like to use them mostly for music listening, gaming etc. , stay with 50’s, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re searching for very clean, flat sound, good for mixing (or/and for custom equalizer setups) ath-70’s are superior. Also the build is much better with more metal parts, but still far lighter than previous ones. They won’t fold like 50’s, but that folding part is the one that has broken for me after couple years, so i am happy with that. Overall audio technica make another fantastic product.
So, i got these for my birthday just over a week ago now and i thought i would weigh in with my thoughts on them. If like me you’ve done the homeworkand watched the unboxing videos on youtube you will be well aware of what’s in the box, let me tell you the carry case, pouch and cables are to my mind all of good quality as are my first impressions of the headphones themselves. Firstly i will talk about comfort. After wearing these headphones for about fourty minutes my jaw and ears became a little sore, which was not a good start but after trying them in different positions on my head i think i’ve found the most comfortable way of wearing them and i can now wear them for a lot longer than fourty minutes at a time. The build quality appears to be good, these things seem very robust. For the past two years i have been alternating between two sets of bose in ear phones, the qc20s and the soundtrue ultras. I used to use an ipod but i’ve recently purchased a sony walkman nw zx100 and a sony pha 1a portable amplifier, i think the sound is great with this set up but i felt i was missing out when i read some of the reviews on the m70x.

One of the best true sound headphones out there. Reproduces clean, clear, true sound as it was recorded in the studio. . I can’t complain about the sound from these headphones. They are crisp, clear and very detailed. However, if you like to listen to music that has a lot of lower mid range and bass notes, these may not accentuate the oomph and punch in the bass notes that you may want. So rnb, hip hop, most pop music will not sound as full as you’d get from the audio technica ath-m50x headphones (which i also have). If you listen to a lot of classical music and/or want to hear music recorded in every tiny nuance and detail, as if you were in the studio with recording the music with the artists/musicians present, then these headphones are spot on for that. The sound is probably the clearest i’ve heard of any headphones/earphones. I own a few mid to high end headphones/earphones and these are the most neutral, ‘true to audio as it was recorded’ sound that i’ve heard. My musical tastes are varied but i do end up using my other headphones more instead of these.
Excellent headphones, he is delighted with them. Requested by my husband as a birthday gift as he does the sound desk at our church. Excellent headphones, he is delighted with them.
Got a broken pair, the second totally made up for it. The product was exactly what i needed for music production, my old songs sound pretty bad on these headphones (i made them on the m50xs) so i know my beats are and vocals sound so much better now i can hear qll the flaws with these headphones. The first pair i received we’re detective and i had to buy another pair straight away, both packages turned up the next day after ordering them. Ive decided to still give 5 stars as the package was fully sealed and this clearly wasnt the sellers fault, ive been refunded. I did not speak to the seller bur i know he gets his packages off when theyre supposed to be sent.
Audio Technica ATH-M70X DJ Headphones : These live up to the reviews, i’m well impressed and would recommend to all who need monitor headphones.
