Whenever one of my favorite artists releases a new album, I feel like their music deserves to be listened to with no distractions. For instance, after waiting six whole years for Vampire Weekend to drop their fourth LP, I couldn’t just listen to it on my commute or at work. I needed to hear it for the first time in a way where I could fully digest it—in solitude, with an amazing, high-resolution set of headphones. It’s times like these when I wish I owned a pair like the Audio-Technica ATH-SR9 headphones, which are specifically designed to provide extremely accurate audio reproduction.
If I’ve learned one thing about headphones at my time working at Reviewed, it’s that not all pairs are created equal. Through the extensive testing we’ve done on all different types of headphones, I know that some are better built than others for smooth audio reproduction. Audio-Technica delivers on that front, designing their ATH-SR9 headphones to meet the needs of audiophiles, and showcase Hi-Res Audio media formats the way they were meant to be heard. These headphones usually cost upwards of $450, but are currently available on Drop for only $249, which is a truly impressive deal.
The ATH-SR9 over-ear headphones feature what Audio-Technica calls “Midpoint Mount Technology,” which allows for natural audio reproduction across all frequencies. The DLC (diamond-like carbon) coating and uniform spacing of the diaphragm also help to ensure optimal audio performance. They come with two removable cables, one with a button controller to let you easily play or pause your music and answer calls, both of which are easy to replace if needed. Other highlights include a foldable design for easy transportation, and soft, durable foam earpads and headband which guarantee a comfortable fit.
If you value crystal clear audio quality above all else when it comes to headphones, the ATH-SR9 won’t let you down. This sale ends on Drop this Friday, and these have an estimated shipping date of July 26—two things to keep in mind if you’d like to buy them.
