Audio-Technica ATH-A990Z


Released Mar 1, 2016

What's in the box

  • 6.3 mm (1/4") stereo adapter


the lower and upper mids are punchy and clear while the "mids" are slightly lesser. I do not find these cans fatiguing to the ears, but they are heavier and the "rubber band mod" was necessary to keep the wing-system together enough and keep them from sliding down on my average sized head. Overall, I'd recommend trying the open-back versions of these headphones first, but these might be an interesting addition to your collection if you love punchy mid-bass.

The A990Z is a fantastic all-rounder with a wide soundstage and a pleasant amount of warmth. Great for someone who's looking for a balanced sound but wants a little bit of oomph in the low end to make genres like hip hop more enjoyable.
