if you like HD6XY this might be for you
eima, 05.05.2020
Sounds pleasant and "flat" in a sense that no sounds stick out to "bite" your ears. The way they sound makes them suitable for very long sessions, IMO. unless, their character backfires for you and you fall asleep or something mundane distracts you from the music - as they don't really "grab" you by their sound, or attract you to particular parts of music - I can imagine some people might find them unexciting or boring. The HD650 sounds more dynamic and less boring maybe, BUT their HD650 sub-bass is nonexistent, combined with emphasized bass/lower-mids results in weird sound IMO. These have some perceivable sub-bass, actually. I like the vocals on r70x more than hd650. Hooked up to a ~60Ohm output impedance amp these sound a little more fun and with more bass and emphasized vocals - but i prefer them with my sub-milliohm low distortion amp (maybe it's not the impedance, but the low quality(?) opamp circuit in my CDP-x303es). Pads wont cover some larger ears which will likely result in discomfort. I'm sorta lucky as my ears actually go a little under the pads - no problem with wearing them for multiple hours, even though I can feel the pads not exactly right on my ears. Stock cable is around 3Ohms (gnd+signal). Thomann sent me a used Taiwanese pair (bstock?) even though I ordered new. Refunded 20€ which I consider sub-optimal but whatever. at least they're not an abused pair.

Stereo field is amazing!
Dj Chap, 23.09.2019
I am so happy I've bought this headphones! They are super light and they sound amazing. The stereo field is very clear.

Con: Not so much bass but it is not a big deal. I just realised that as soon as I started to use a Software to calibrate my room / headphones.

Thanks

Toller Sound und Federleicht
tme , 04.06.2020
Zwei Dinge standen für mich im Vordergrund: Erstens, ich will Mix und Master von unseren Songs gut beurteilen können. Zweitens, ich will einen Kopfhörer, mit dem ich den ganzen Tag arbeiten kann. Bei meinem alten AKG (geschlossene Bauform) konnte ich irgendwann nicht mehr - er drückte nach ein paar Stunden gefühlt überall.
In beiderlei Hinsicht ist der ATH-R70X ein Volltreffer. Schon beim ersten Aufsetzen ein Aha-Erlebnis: Der Kopfhörer ist super leicht und schmiegt sich extrem vorsichtig an den Kopf. Dazu die offene Bauweise - kein Gefühl mehr von Abschottung. Von "Tragekomfort" zu sprechen, trifft es nicht - man merkt eigentlich überhaupt nicht, dass man einen Kopfhörer aufhat!
Der Sound ist hervorragend. Da liegen Welten zwischen diesem und so ziemlich jedem Kopfhörer, den ich jemals aufhatte, insbesondere klingt er aber im direkten Vergleich mehrere Größenordnungen besser, als mein AKG 270 (nicht verwunderlich) und auch deutlich klarer, viel feiner aufgelöst und räumlicher als der beyerdynamic Custom One Pro, der sich ebenfalls im Haushalt befindet.
Schade ist, dass die Kabel nicht ohne weiteres zu tauschen sind - wollen wir hoffen, dass sie ewig halten (wie übrigens beim AKG270, das Kabel hält schon seit über 20 Jahren).
Außerdem etwas nervig, dass man gaaanz genau hingucken muss, wo L und R sind - bei typischer Studiobeleuchtung eigentlich unmöglich.
Fazit: Ich habe zwar keine preislich ähnlichen Kopfhörer zum direkten Vergleich - aber rein subjektiv kann ich den ATH-R70X nur empfehlen.

UPDATE: Ich habe den Kopfhörer ein paar Monate glücklich benutzt, leider ist dann einer der "Flügel" abgebrochen. Wie man auch an anderen Stellen von frustrierten Nutzern lesen kann, bietet Audio Technica leider keine Ersatzteile über den Einzelhandel an, sonst wäre das ja kein großes Ding gewesen. Immerhin, der Support war freundlich und antwortete schnell, allerdings hat es mehrere Wochen gedauert, bis überhaupt etwas kam und dann war es das falsche Teil. Ab da vergingen nochmal mehrere Wochen und in der Zeit kam es immer wieder zu Mißverständnissen. Obwohl es eigentlich auf Garantie gehen sollte, habe ich mittlerweile zwei Rechnungen bekommen und warte immer noch auf das Ersatzteil.
Das soll jetzt niemanden vom Kauf abhalten, der Kopfhörer ist wirklich toll - wenn er geht.
Hey Thomann, könnt ihr nicht mal auf AT einwirken, dass sie euch die Ersatzteile zu ihren Produkten direkt anbieten lassen? Das wäre klasse! 😃🤘
