It’s the time of the year! Audio-Technica Japan releases press images of all its top headphones. From top down, Audio-Technica ATH-W1000x, the 10th generation of Audio-Technica’s wood-line headphones priced at 71400 Yen ($820). Equiped with large 53mm drivers, these beautifully lacquered monsters come manufactured with the newly designed “floating wood frame.”
Then, followed by the new Audio-Technica ATH-ES10, the highest model yet in AT’s EARSUIT line made with forged Titanium. The ES10 will be priced around $550 with the current (outrageous) USD-JPY exchange rate.
WS70, Audio-Technica Japan’s first “Solid Bass” headphones, utilizes the new “single chamber” for deep bass reproduction. These cans are priced at a more affordable 12600 Yen, which translates to around $150 as an Japan export.
We are already planning to have the W1000X available for demo at AC Gears‘ NYU Store and the ES10 available at the Greenwich Store. Both WS70 and PRO700GD should become available at both locations as soon as they are released. Go Team AT!
