Audio Technica ATH M70x

the Closed Flagship of the M professional models from audio Technica, bigger brother of the (in)Famous M50x, community loved M40x and the new boy M60x, its smaller than the former but still bigger than the portable on ear M60x.

the M70x has polarizing opinion on a lot of people, it’s hated by some, loved by others, Zeos on one hates them, while others like them and used them well years for their main mixing gear.

in my opinion, it’s still one of the most unique headphone you can get under $250 IMO, not a recommended daily beater, but it sounds different enough to have a pal e in any collector’s stable


My impression is very similar to lachlan, it’s very, flat in measurement, in practice it sound a tad brighter than neutral for me, one myth people have on the M70x is that it doesn’t have bass, but no, man, it has a lot less mid bass, but the sub bass man, it is prominent, mids are less forward than the M50x and MSR 7, and treble, is man oh man, where it shine, the detail retrieval of this is way better than any of the M model and the MSR, it can be bordering to over the limit for some, but for me, its just the perfect amount.
Overall its a unique tuning I only ever hear matched by a Final Pandora Hope IV, even then on some aspect I still like my M70x better than it.
