Audio Technica Appreciation Thread

After owning the ESW9 and EW9, selling them and just recently, getting the EW9 back again, Audio Technica is now becoming my favorite headphone brand and I started collecting more and more of them. I hope this thread will soon grow over time with info and opinions from people who actually own the headphone/IEMs and be references to others who may be interested in AT gears

Following are what I own currently (not limited to woodies ):

ATH-W1000
ATH-W1000X
ATH-ESW11 Ltd
ATH-EW9
ATH-EC700
ATH-CK9
ATH-CK10
AT-HA26D (DAC + amp)
Haonan and kusanagivn like this.

How is the ESW11LTD? I have only seen lukewarm reviews about it. Comparison to the W3000ANV would be nice since I own one

Doesn't matter how many you have, as long as you like and appreciate the AT sound

A big shout out + thanks to bro Randius for creating an appreciation/compendium thread for all ATH gear owners! Wah finally got our own fanclub thread liao to spam or chit-chat anything related to Audio-technica, but pls don't vote me as chairmeh as discussed in the other M50 thread, cos I'm really not good as such stuffs lol.

Also, on the contrary of what ppl think, I don't actually own that much ATH gears actually, and it was only this yr that I finally moved up to ATH full-sized headphones in the form of my AD1000PRM/W100. Previously most of the stuff I own are actually just portable line-up, so I'm still considered quite a new bird compared to many veterans/lao jiaos out there.

Some of the ATH stuffs I currently own:

ATH-AD1000PRM
ATH-W100
ATH-ESW9
ATH-FC700 (1x Red, 1x White)
ATH-CK100PRO
ATH-CK100
ATH-CK9
ATH-CM700Ti
AT-PHA05BT LTD
AT-PHA10
Plenty of GOLDLINK series interconnects used for my home desktop DAC/amp/speakers setup.

Anyone who owns a pair of AT headphones/earphones (or more!) are welcome to join in the discussion

@Haonan: Goldlink interconnects! I was looking for them high and low but AT SEA doesn't bring them in at all

Finally finished setting up my desktop rig - MBA -> AudioQuest Forest USB -> Musical Fidelity V-Link II -> AudioQuest Forest Optical -> AT-HA26D -> W1000/W1000X/ESW11

Listening to Ace Combat 6 sound tracks and Hatsune Miku (e.g. Tell Your World, Bad Apple etc.) is simply wonderful with the W1000X Using the W1000 more for artistes like Rurutia, Olivia Ong etc. Have yet to try classical on them yet.

Also chiong a couple of AT headphone stands directly from AT office today. Still wondering why Stereo stopped selling them???

Merry christmas!!

I really love the ath sound signature. They have something that make vocals shine! especially females one.

I have the es7 and m50. But recently sold off my m50.
Didnt like the m50 compared to all others ath series.

Aiming for esw9 soon!

Or aim for ESW10JPN (time to poison more people) It has supposedly the best mid amongst the ESW series.

@Randius: Yeah, you are right.

Actually, the CK100pro do very well with vocal, to my ears.
When listening to these singer 南泥, 陳潔麗, 姚斯婷, I will automatically pick up CK100pro to listen.
