Granted, I typically don’t post many products here on Mavromatic that are not of the higher end quality, but come on… $1,669.00 for a pair of headphones is a bit outragous. The Audio-Technica ATH-W5000 headphones are indeed special since the cans themselves are made out of striped Ebony wood, which provide “superb acoustic characteristics” and the pads are made out of the softest leather available which feature Audio-Technica’s “ultra-comfortable total ear fitting design”. If you plan on taking these cans on the road, Audio-Technica is also throwing in this lovely padded, protective hard-shell storage case.


The ATH-W5000 is part of Audio-Technica’s Import Series which means the highest audiophile quality components and manufacturing and price tag.
