Open to: Audio-Technica ATH-AD500X

Range of headphones, the Japanese company Audio-Technica is able to surprise even the most experienced audiophile, one only category Hi-Fi manufacturer offers more than 10 different models. Many of the full-size wired headphones Audio-Technica are a special series of AD, and the initial version here is ATH-AD500X, which was at us on testing.

The abbreviation AD stands for Air Dynamic, i.e. all of the line headphones have an open back design. At the same time, it is not only in appearance but also sound: the AD different from the others, spacious and “airy” sound that became possible thanks to the drivers with the sound coils with aluminum core with copper coating (CCAW) and an open acoustic design.

ATH-AD500X has 53 mm drivers. Yes, the larger diameter increases the mass (and who cares if it’s headphones for home) and forced to use stiffer materials to reduce the distortion due to the deformation of the radiating surface (not to mention high requirements to the amplifier), but it increased the driver outputs typical headphones AD series sound. By the way, some of the internal elements can even see through the grill: diaphragm with straight holes is covered with a rear metal deflector. If you look on the other hand, you notice that the driver is at some angle to the frame. Why was it made? As a rule, to expand the audible sound of space, but there is also a view that this design forms a three-dimensional sound stage.

The mechanism of the headband — proprietary 3D Wing from Audio-Technica. The construction is made in the form of two elastic metal arc (lightweight aluminum body), dressed in a plastic tube. It does not require adjustment for a particular head (two “pillows” played a role), the headphones sit very comfortably as it has the minimum pressure. Yes, when moving the head cups begin to slide down, but this is clearly not the headphones for running, isn’t it?

The attachment of the ear cups, and cups, made of black plastic. Ear pads ATH-AD500X is trimmed with velvet, while the part that serves to attach the cushions to the shells made of thin faux leather. Damping a cloth strip is their integral part, so we replace will not work. How long such material? Usually for a couple of years about the problems it is possible to forget, and there to find a replacement will not be difficult.

Cable oxygen-free copper and non-removable unilateral. You can treat this differently: Yes detachable cable is easier to replace. BUT! Audio-Technica makes very high quality wires that don’t need updating even after several years of operation, especially if we are talking about a device that you use at home or in the Studio. And it is not necessary to remind that the extra contact is a potential source of problems. Remember, many manufacturers have already suffered enough because of trouble with connectors.

By the way, a nice bonus included — gold plated adaptor 6.3 mm. a useful Thing, though the 3.5 mm Jack cable no thread for its fixation. However, if you do not try to pull the cable with your foot, it will remain in the nest.

Of course, the main thing in the headphones does not look (you are unlikely to be in them in the subway, on the street, in an airplane), and the sound. Go over the specifications and let us all in order.

Sound

As older models of AD-series ATH-AD500X free and have a very atmospheric sound. Space these headphones draw very well, sometimes even the sound seems too easy, although the dynamism and mobility he does not hold.

A lot of bass, but without fanaticism. Lacks a bit of upper mid and high frequencies, which slightly reduces the number of supported genres, but the bass of the composition and the metal come to cheer. Vocals and guitars sound brighter and more legible the same can be said about dance music. Overall, the model sounds very vigorously — we can safely recommend it for driving genres (sitting by the fireplace, leave something like the ATH-AD900X).

FREQUENCY RESPONSE ATH-AD500X

Not to mention that the ATH-AD500X significantly reduces the “mud” of the source. We tried first listen to these headphones with the iPhone and Google Pixel XR 2 and was pleasantly surprised that even with the help of streaming services on a smartphone, you can get pleasure from listening to music on this device. For long-term background listening during some not too important things.

Then in the course went heavy artillery in the form of the FiiO M9: Exynos 7270, a little less than a Gigabyte of RAM, about two gigabytes of ROM, the touch screen from LG, module Bluetooth with support for all conceivable codecs. For the audio portion of this model is the solution already tested by the company in practice: a pair of AK4490EN and the balanced amplifier on the basis of the OPA-shek. The decoding signal is engaged in a “specially trained” FPGA-shka.

Needless to say, that player immediately produced the best quality output. The sound became more transparent and realistic, albeit without the stunning effect of being in the Studio or at the concert. The fifth violinist in the third row to hear will not work, but it is not necessary: the dynamic entries with a dense sound, they work out at 100 percent.

If you use these headphones on purpose, you cannot do without a home stereo system (or computer power). We started testing with Yulong DA9 and Resonessence Labs Concero HP in the role of the DAC and amplifier. In the first case, it was clearly evident that added a bit of HF to provide supply closer to neutral. The second DAC was pleased with its ruggedness. Sound any sample rate and bit depth, as well as newfangled DSD records that turned out for him. Gaining control of bass, it became much easier to set the song “under itself”, while MIDs remain tight, and high — the same crystal.

So using the ATH-AD500X with amplifier or home speaker system — must have if you want to fully discover their potential. In an extreme case, you can do player. As for the smartphone… better forget about him. It’s definitely not headphones in order to work in the subway chase.

Open to all

Perhaps the ATH-AD500X is a great example of how to implement the open design of the headphones. Large 53 mm drivers have allowed to reveal the potential and the comfortable fit promotes long-term music listening experience. And the price is 11 000 rubles — quite adequate for such a device, because here it is not determined by the steepness of the components and not the cost of materials and labor, developers who set up the whole system. And the result is really worth it.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

  3. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666 ”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR ” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness (James 1:27) What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any religion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
