Audio Technica ATH-MSR7: The lowest priced high-resolution headphone

Headphones
[MUSIC] Hi I'm David Carnoy from CNET.com, and this is the Audio Technica ATH-MRS7, an excellent over the ear headphone that costs around $250 online, and comes in a few different color options. Aside from being a nicely designed sturdy headphone, it's comfortable to wear, with plushly padded ear cups. It comes with three cables including standard 1.2 meter and 3 meter cables plus a 1.2 meter cable with an in-line remote and microphone for compatible smart phones and other devices. The headphone is equipped with Audio-tehnica's proprietary 45 millimeter true motion drivers. And the company calls this a high resolution headphone, and says it is designed to reproduce high-res audio. Now, I can tell you that, until now, we haven't tested a so-called high resolution headphone in this price range that can truly reproduce high-res audio. But to its credit, this audio technica can, which is why we are calling it the most affordable high-res headphone out there. There's a lot of energy and life to its sound along with lots of clarity of course, so you feel a strong connection to the music. It also projects wide more outside the head, stereo imaging and it's particular open sound for a closed back headphone. The only downside here is that it's also the kind of headphone that's not shy about revealing harshness or distortions in recordings. So grittier sounding material can end up having a rough edge. In the end the Audio Technica ATH-MSR7 is a great headphone. It's not quite as comfortable as some competing Sony models, like the MDR-1A. Which is a little bit more laid back sounding and forgiving headphone. But if you are listening to well-recorded tracks, it will certainly bring out the best in them. I'm David Carnoy. Thanks for watching.
