Audio-Technica Ath-ws99 Solid Bass Over-ear Headphones - Black is rated

Amazing bass and doesnt neglect the rest of frequencies...
I picked these up on sale about 2 years ago and these headphones are still going strong. the sound quality is astounding. the first thing that stood out is how you can actually feel the bass coming from these, even just holding them. the one thing i did notice is that if you going to listen to these with your phone it will help if you download a music player with more in depth EQ settings. once i had that and adjusted the sound they instantly made me a fan of audio-technica. so much so i bought a pair of in ear solid bass and a pair of sport headphones. only gripe i thing i have is that the 2 swivels that the headphones connect to the headband are starting to loosen, so hopefully they wont break. but for 2 years of regular use these still sound brand new. highly highly recommend to anyone wanting thier head to vibrate.

Great Uncompromised Qaulity
These headphones are awesome from the build quality to the looks and sound!!! These pair of headphones have yet to disappoint and are well worth their price point when compared to other headphones. The only thing I suggest for you if you spring for these is to buy a dac or an equivalent with a external eq to unlock these headphones true performance.

Best headphones that i've ever heard.
So, these are advertised as Bass headphones, but I really wouldn't class them there because you can listen to music in these without overwhelming bass. I would say that they have a 15 percent enhancement out of the box, but the key is that those huge drivers have the ability to produce amazing bass. I will repeat what others have said, "they need an eq" to produce bass levels to my satisfaction. Then because a true eq reduced the other frequencies rather then boosting the bass, I find that when I eq them enough to get the bass levels right I then can't get the volume levels that I desire. However, that is with a normal phone or sound-card headphone output. When I hook them up to my headphone amp these puppies can smash my head in. They have powerful and highly accurate drivers, thus they are a little harder to drive then smaller ones. I actually prefer this trait, because while I listen to electronic bass music the most, I appreciate the ability to normalize the eq and still be able to listen to jazz and classical without the bass taking over. I have owned lots of high end headphones and these are by far the best. I'm hearing things in my music that i didn't know were there. Where lots of bass headphones essentially eq the music for you,, these just give you the ability to perform, without muddling up your music with poor built in frequency boosts. I like to compare it to a ported sub vs a sealed sub. A ported sub needs less power to produce sound levels, but the port only boosts a few frequencies and it makes the sub worst at producing all the other frequencies because the speaker is sloppy and doesn't have the support behind it. These are more like a sealed sub, they need more power to drive but are accurate. I would also point out that the sound stage in these is just incredible.When before the music was just stereo, left or right, now it sounds like things are moving all around my head, the music seems to swim around the different parts of those big drivers
