SonicPro High-Resolution Headphones with Active Noise Cancellation, Black

The ATH-MSR7NC headphones combine the Hi-Res Audio technology and design features from the original ATH-MSR7 with newly developed active-noise cancelling technology to bring you the ultimate listening experience.

These headphones are outfitted with exclusive 45 millimeter True Motion Drivers to deliver distortion-free audio reproduction with extended frequency response. A miniature microphone is incorporated into the top of each earcup to pick up ambient noise that can then be blocked by an appropriate sound-cancelling signal when the active noise-cancelling function is activated. Having the microphone on the top, instead of on the side, of the housing ensures consistent noise cancellation unaffected by the user’s head movement or by wind noise. Each earcup also has an acoustic vent, ideally positioned on the side of the housing, 90 degrees from mic, to enhance tuning without negatively affecting sound quality. The result is consistent Hi-Res Audio reproduction whether in active or passive noise-cancelling modes.

The ATH-MSR7NC’s highly flexible swivel design, along with its soft, memory foam earpads and headband, ensure lasting comfort even during the longest listening sessions. The headphones also come with two detachable cables: 1.2 meter (3.9 feet) standard cable and a 1.2 meter (3.9 feet) cable with in-line controls and microphone for use with smartphones. An internal 3.7V lithium polymer battery powers the active noise-cancelling function and can easily be recharged using the included USB charging cable.

  • Exclusive 45 mm True Motion Drivers, featuring a highly responsive diaphragm and lightweight voice coil, deliver Hi-Res Audio with controlled transients
  • Noise-cancelling and venting technologies work together to maintain the Hi-Res Audio reproduction in both active and passive noise-cancelling modes
  • 360° omnidirectional noise-cancelling technology with high signal-to-noise ratio ensures consistent noise cancellation that is not affected by user’s head movement
  • Precision-tooled flange and crescent-shaped PCB balance and tune the mid/low frequencies for reduced distortion
  • Ultra-comfortable memory foam earpads and headband
  • Internal rechargeable battery provides 30 hours of continuous headphone use when fully charged
  • Two detachable cables: standard 1.2 m (3.9') cable and 1.2 m (3.9') smartphone-compatible cable with in-line mic and controls for answering calls and controlling music
  • Includes airline adapter, USB charging cable and pouch

The Move to Hi-Res Audio

While many listeners may believe that high-resolution audio came along with the introduction of the Compact Disc in 1982, constraints on the disc’s storage space always prevented CD audio (standardized at 44.1 kHz/16-bit) from fully and completely reproducing the original recorded sound. The advent and subsequent popularity of MP3s only made this problem more pronounced – the necessary compression of these files causes audio information to be lost, thus greatly reducing the audio quality. But with lossless audio file formats, faster Internet speeds, and storage space increasingly easy to come by (and in ever-smaller packages), the push is on to create audio equipment capable of capturing and reproducing true Hi-Res Audio, generally considered to be 96 kHz/24-bit or better.

The Hi-Res Audio logo certifies that a product meets the Hi-Res Audio standards. Per these standards, headphones must have transducer frequency performance to at least 40 kHz. As a producer of these types of audiophile headphones since 1972, Audio-Technica is well-positioned to provide audio solutions that meet the demands of Hi-Res Audio media formats, allowing for the full reproduction of their extended sonic characteristics.

Audio Technica has crafted a pair of headphones that might make you second guess your pair of MX50s, or any other headphone in this price range.

Here is a guide to the ATH-MSR7''s examining what they do right and where they fall short.

Build/Appearance
Pros:
+ Very "public" friendly (GREAT looking set of headphones)
+ Matte finish on the aluminum housing and nice colored accents as well as chrome touches in several places
+ Brushed chrome slider

+ Outward bulk is as minimal as it can be given the size, no strange gaps, stay pretty flushed to your head
+ Good durability and flexibility
+ They may slide a bit, but they stay on your head if you''re walking, turning head quickly.
+ Aluminum casing around the drivers and metal headband look and feel impressive
+ Balanced weight, no manufacturing oddities
+ Earphones twist (the correct way, unlike QC25 which fold outwards if you are wearing them around your neck -.-)
+ Large adjustment range to suit different sized heads
+ Tolerances are all tight and flush
+ Cable has tight fit into left headphone

Cons:
- Strange decision to put (LEFT/RIGHT) on outside of headphones. Not that unappealing though...

- Lots of creaking plastic when expanding headphones (everything except driver housing and slider is plastic)
- Not foldable
- Squirmy cable with large jack housing
- Weight (290g) - not such a big deal
- Adjustment slider is a bit stiff

Comfort
Pros:
+Earpads are large, fit all the way around your ear
+Earpad depth is DECENT, some might look for a little more breathing room - ears are VERY close to drivers
+ No sharp parts or anything like that
+ Just enough padding on the headband which wraps around a good portion of it

Cons:
- Earpads are not memory foam - they are soft, but why not make them even softer?
- OK the headband. It''s not curved correctly. Out of the box it pressed down onto the top point of your head. Flex it a bit, break it in. NO ISSUES
- OK the clamping pressure. Again, out of the box it is a bit irritating. Because the earpads are so large, the pressure from the bottom of the earpads was getting to the top of my jaw after about an hour. Again, flex it, break it in, open it, close it, open it. *lots of creaking* It will work out. STILL, pressure is above average for sure.
- Again, 290 oz is a good amount of weight on someone''s head.

Sound Quality - I''m going to try to keep this simple and unbiased
+ DETAILS. Lots of details.
+ Impressive Clarity, no muffling of vocals
+ Soundstage is impressively wide for a closed back headphone - all instruments and vocals have their own "space"
+ Natural and relatively neutral.
+ Reaches high and low: Good bass, mid and treble presence
+ Tight, focused bass that can drop fairly low

Cons:
- NOT a relaxing headphone. Ears seem to work hard with these on, focusing in and out to deal with those upfront mids and trebles especially at higher volumes
- Bass is not for bassheads or for anyone who is looking for dynamic bass response
- Because it is closer to neutral than most consumer headphones, it won''t sound as full, rather music sounds more separate and clear
- Flirts with sibilance in the treble - what''s this mean? S''s sound a bit raspy and sharp

Neutral - Personal Preference
= Vocals and treble are very much upfront
= Mids are emphasized
= Bass is only present when it needs to be
=Treble is not smoothed out (more sharp than soothing)

Isolation/Sound Leakage - A short summary
- Not great. Isolation average at best. It muffles outside noise, but nowhere nears cancels it. Sound leakage is decent. Better than the QC25''s, about the same as UE6000. It''s what you expect, not spectacularly worse or better.

Accessories
= 3 cables: short, longer, longest. The short one is for your average consumer, comes with inline remote that comes with mic and ability to play/pause, NO VOLUME. Works on Android/iOS
- Fake leather...Vinyl? well. It''s a bag. And that''s a shame. It should be a hard or semi-hard carrying case at this price point. It''s a nice bag, feels good - the headphone fits fine, but it''s still just a bag.

Comparisons
Sony MDR-1A ($300):
Boy these looks similar. Well, the Sony is more comfortable by a long shot w/ memory foam earpads, lighter, smaller footprint and no clamping force/headband issues. (it''s incredibly comfortable vs. mildly comfortable). The Sony is plastic all the way around though it is arguably better designed. Why? The cable is designed so that it does not run up on your shoulder. The cable has this neat twisting input and most importantly the plastics don''t creak. That being said: The MSR7 is arguably more impressive to hold and look at with its matte aluminum driver casings and sturdy build. Sound quality is entirely subjective. They may look the same, but they act differently. Sony is less neutral, much smoother and more relaxing. It lacks the details of the MSR7 and the vocals are a lot more subdued. The bass is very present, and fairly well behaved. The treble and midrange are definitely not as upfront.
Recommendation: Rap, Metal, R&B, Hard Rock listeners go with the Sony''s. Classical, Acoustic, Alternative, Indie: Go with MSR7

Bose QC25 ($300):
Just to shorten this, we''ll say that the QC25 is about as comfortable as the MDR-1A, they remind me a lot of each other (w/o having had both at the same time). All plastic again. Very light, memory foam, etc. Comes with semi-hard carrying case. Noise cancelling as you well know is very impressive (INCREDIBLE on a plane, not as good with ind. voices). The MSR7 has better clarity, better soundstage, more present mid range and treble. The QC25''s are pretty well balanced, with a decent bass (close to MSR7, not as refined) and good mid and treble range, They are still much more relaxing a listen. They are a jack of all trades but a master of one.
Recommendation: If you plan to wear your headphones in public a lot (loud places), get the QC25, no question. Otherwise, MSR7 sound is more detailed.

Audio Technica MX50 (~$160 at time of review):
Here we go. The younger brother (kinda). This one is tough. Well they are similar in many ways. The MSR7 has slightly improved earpads (softer). Clamping force is a little stronger on MSR7. Otherwise, comfort is pretty similar. Build is similar, except you have aluminum instead of plastic, frankly the MSR7 look a lot more "grown up." Weight is similar. The MX50''s fold up (That''s nice.) MX50 cord is a little better (who cares at this point?). OK, sound: MX50 has more bass, MSR7 has a little more detail and better soundstage. While the MSR7 bass is a little more refined (less boomy) the MX50 bass gives a much more dynamic, better overall impression. MX50 mids and treble not as forward as MSR7, so more relaxing listen.

Logitech UE6000 (Discontinued, available for $115)
UE6000, again, is more comfortable. Less so than the Sony''s and Bose headphones, but the lighter weight body makes the difference here. Clamping force is also a relief. Overall, the sound is worse than the MSR7. It''s not as detailed and much less clear. The bass is just a tad bit more pronounced, but given the lack of clarity, well, it''s not worth that loss. Build quality is good...it''s plastic again...fabric carrying case (not a bag), comes with headphone slitter which is nice. I should say came with it, these are discontinued.

UPDATE: Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 comparison
I got my hands on the new Momentum 2.0 and 2.0 Wireless at this years SXSW trade show. The MSR7''s and Momentum''s were positioned a few yards from each other, so a few awkward walks back and forth gave me a good idea of how these stack up to each other. The new Momentum''s (especially wireless) are about as close to perfect as you can get for a portable consumer headphone. They are supremely comfortable, have great sound, and are quite stylish. They isolate noise better than the MSR7''s, and even weigh a little less. I would argue that they have slightly better build quality with a leather headband and no creaking plastics. The sound? Well they both sound great. The Momentum''s dig a little deeper in the bass which makes them a little more dynamic, but they do not separate sound as well as the MSR7''s. They are not as clear and unfront, they are a more relaxing, balanced listen. But then there is the price. It''s $350 ($500 for wireless) vs. $250. That''s pretty significant. The original Momentum''s started at $370 and are now at around $200, so I would suspect a similar decrease. That might take a while though, so reach into your wallet and see what you are willing to spend. Oh. They fold up and come with a nice carrying case as well...

Recommendation: I would buy the Momentum''s if you have the money. They are just incredible comfortable and sound really good. If you don''t care about the fancy features offered by the Wireless version, and strictly listen to piano or acoustic based music, I would consider getting the MSR7''s.

Note: The Wireless version did a GOOD job cancelling out noise. Better than average, worse than Bose. The bluetooth was pretty skippy though. I think they used an 5s if I remember correctly. Might just be an isolated issue. You can connect a cord to the wireless Momentum''s if you want.

Others to recommend in similar category:
Sennheiser Momentum 1 ($188 at time of review) and Momentum 2 ($350) and Wireless ($500)
Bowers and Wilkins P5 II ($300) and P7 ($400)
Bang and Olufsen BeoPlay H6 ($400)
NAD VISO HP50 ($300)
Denon AH-D600 (~$300)
V-Moda M100 ($300)
and many more...

Summary: Beautiful design and nice matte black aluminum finish marred by some creaky plastics. The comfort level is a notch below "good" because of the weight (290g), clamping force, and headband pressure. Accessories are OK, 3 cables of varying length and just a cloth bag. Sound quality is excellent, though not relaxing. The mids and treble are very forward and border on fatiguing, especially at higher volumes. That being said, details are excellent, soundstage is impressive, bass does a good job, and nothing sounds unnatural. Isolation and sound leakage are nothing special.

No point to recommend these to you, because I do not know who "you" are. Facts are facts and preferences are preferences. But these are good headphones. They do a lot of things well. I hope if you read this, you know which direction to go in.

Here are some other things:
***These headphones were tested on a Dell XPS 13 (2014) and LG G3. No amp. Various sources (Google Music, Soundcloud, Youtube, "Hi-Res" audio, Surround sound tests, bass tests, etc.)

Please feel free to comment and ask questions. I really do hope this helped. If it did, please give me some credit for this exhausting review.

As a replacement for my Sennheiser Evolutions that I purchased ~15 years ago I purchased a pair of Sennheiser HD380s. These headphones sounded wonderful but seriously lacked bass and clamped very tightly to the head, as they were studio headphones and the tight fit was to prevent bleed back to the mic. I gave those to my son and then ordered a pair of V-Moda Crossfade M-100s, These had a nice deep bass to them and were much more comfortable then the HD380s; however, they were not nearly as clean. I longed for the clarity and accuracy of the HD380s and the bass of the M-100s. Research led me to these and I am really glad it did. They have almost the clarity and precision of the HD380s and good deep bass. They are also very comfortable for those hours long listening sessions. If you are doing studio mixes then the HD380 are a better choice in this price range as they are more accurate and the clarity is a little better. However, if you are a picky audiophile who cannot afford to spend a grand or more on headphones. I would give the babies a try. You''ll need a headphone amp. I am pushing mine with a Dragon Fly Red and they sound wonderful.

There are some pretty stellar reviews in here that are accurate and were the basis for my purchase. If you want highly technical reviews about how bright these are and how accurate, but not overpowering the bass is, keep looking. This is a laymen’s review.

I am very happy with the MSR7. I do wish there was a headphone this clear and detailed that had a button to turn bass on and off, but I can never go back to a headphone without this detail.

My preference is open back planar magnetic so I’m already used to losing a little bass, but I really wanted a nice sound stage. These delivered. For this pair, I needed a closed back solution for work and these are impressing some of my colleagues (which include audio engineers in our game studio). However, instead of leaving these on my desk I find I am wearing them everywhere. I have listened to more music in the past few days than I have since the beginning of the year. I keep feeding these headphones new and old tracks to hear how they sound. What is weird is I’m hearing clarity on individual instruments I could never hear before, in tracks I know from heart. Even if other headphones make a warmer sound, “warm” might be another way of describing when sounds blend together, with less separation.

About the bass: I like clean sub bass and listen to a fair amount of EDM music. These are better for my ears than Beats. I don’t feel like these are doing as much damage even though the bass feels missing at times. For an example you can try at home, the Deadpool 2 title song from Celine Dion has this low frequency sound that is super satisfying on my Dolby Atmos system. These headphones reproduce that more cleanly than others and i scour the music catalogs looking for other tracks that use that well. I can listen for longer and have been without fatigue and that earned it five stars...especially for my audio books and movie watching on my commute.

About the squeaking: yeah these squeak when you have them around your neck and when taking on and off. Haven’t figured out if the hinges need oil or if a plastic part is rubbing. Not a huge annoyance, but I docked them a star for it. Everything else in this build is great.

The main solution I have is to buy a pair of Monoprice M560s to use open back at home so I can have both experiences, because I saved so much money getting these vs the M1060Cs which were my first choice for closed back, but at twice the price that I couldn’t justify in a planar magnetic I couldn’t convert to open when needed and still trust to keep sound in at my desk.

Love these headphones, but everything you read about them being bright/cooler is correct. The best thing is that you may find out, thats exactly what you always wanted and didn’t know it.

I''ve been trying to find something in a headphone that sounds this amazing for several years. My quest started about 7 yrs ago with a set of Sony V-6''s Sony MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones with CCAW Voice Coil , crisp and clean sound, but the highs were too harsh to listen to at moderate volume for too long, I gave them to my daughters to use when I bought the Koss Pro DJ 100''s. They used the V-6''s until the earpads fell apart. They have since moved on to earbuds, oh well....
The DJ100''s Koss ProDJ100 Headphones were MUCH better! Warm, clean sound and easily driven, they were my go to headphones for a few years until I recently bought the Koss Pro 4s.
The Pro 4s Koss Pro4S Full Size Studio Headphones, Black with Silver Trim were an improvement over the 100''s and was very happy with them, but as always I''m looking for better headphones than what I had previously. I had gone about as far as I could with Koss Headphones, the next step up was their ESP "phones" Koss ESP-950 Electrostatic Stereophone but at about a grand each and the lack of portability, for those reasons they weren''t even a consideration.

What can I say about them that hasn''t already been said? These are the absolute best headphones I''ve owned, so far...

I bought the Audio-Technica MSR7BK to pair with my new Fiio X3 2nd Gen FiiO X3-II High Resolution Music Player (Newest Model) (Black) . First listen straight out of the box they sounded a little on the bright side, but not harsh. After some time they did seem to settle down (could just be my ears adjusting to them, too. I''m still on the fence about burn-in) and sound just the way I had hoped.
Side by side with 4s, they both seem to be just as accurate at reproducing sound, but the Audio-Technica''s beat them out in the higher frequency range revealing even MORE detail than was possible with the Koss, amplifier noise that was non existent from my Dell d630 laptop (plays 192/24 FLAC perfectly fine) with the Koss revealed itself with the Audio-Technica''s.

More to come.......

PROS: The main feature of the headphones, the audio, is exceptional quality. I am pleased with it. I primarily bought these for work but ended up using to monitor some of my mixes in the studio. I do notice some slight bias in the EQ of the output audio while comparing/monitoring samples, 3rd party masters, and personal mixes. As far as bass, it''s not too much and not overdone like their cousin, the ATH-M50x. The bass seems accurate enough and smooth. The mids seem to be dropped about 1db and the highs seem spot-on. Maybe the highs are just a tad much higher than what I''d like.

Honestly, I feel these are better monitors than the ATH-M50x''s--Ironically, they''re not marketing the term "monitoring" in this model. I suppose they''re not made specifically for reference quality or monitoring, but it''s good to know that I can use them to prevent background noises with ANC anywhere I use them. Would I suggest these as a studio headphone? It depends--If you''re trying to use it solely for mixing/mastering reference audio, it''s not made for that IMO. The bias on the audio is slightly there. However, you can use it to hear unwanted clutter in your mix like any good monitoring phones. If you''re really skilled, you can still use these for more than minor monitoring in the studio, but you better use your loudspeaker monitors 80% of the time to maintain an accurate frequency (EQ) in your songs. It''s great for hi-res sound for regular listening to final/mastered tracks. It''s great for noisy environments while trying to listen to music or just reduce noise.

Everything else other than the sound is great too. The comfort is there and the quality. The pads are soft and seem to be expanding back in their original place after use. I became an Audio-Technica fan after my first pair of ATH-M50x''s. Whether these are a bit audio biased or not, Audio-Technica has always had the best sounding cans IMO.

CONS: The cable for non-phone use is too short. My M50x''s have plenty of cable length and so should these. In the photo, I''m hardly able to route the cord away from my keyboard without it getting in the way. With my 50x''s I can move it under and further away making it less annoying.

I bought this pair and ended up not needing them but decided to keep them anyway. I am really glad I did. I have a pair of M50x''s as well as with several other pairs of headphones, but these are by far my favorite set now.

I can listen to music for hours without my ears having any discomfort from distorted highs or unbearable lows. I hate when people use the word sound stage, as it is something that can''t be measured, though I will say that reproduction of different environments is excellent.

Your audio source is going to have the greatest impact on your audio quality. If you''re plugging these into a phone or PC, you''re probably going to be able to hear all the feedback and distortion that already exists even better.

So use a good DAC or other source with decent filters and a lossless (or as lossless as possible) audio source and you will be extremely happy with these headphones.

These headphones are better than the M50x''s. The clarity IMO is about an entire step above them. You will lose a little bass, but the bass in the M50x''s creates annoying distortion for most music. I''m able to drive these headphones at higher volumes without any loss in clarity.

I use them with the Mayflower ARC DAC. I can highly recommend it. Though I can also recommend the SMSL SD793-II if you''re looking for something less expensive.

As with all headphones, you will have to buy them and test them for yourself. Sound pressure level is relative to altitude, your ear canal size, and a number of other factors. We''re not all hearing the same thing. Just make sure before you rate these headphones you used a good source, not your phone and not your aux port on your PC. If you have a bad source, these will make that source sound even worse.

OK so I''ve owned the 50x''s for 2 years now and these went on sale for $150... what the 50x''s are normally. My girlfriend has been all over my 50x''s lately, so I got her these and ofc had to listen to them asap. Jesus they blow the 50x''s out of the water in my opinion. I had to buy a second pair for me at this price before I missed out!

The soundstage at this price is unbelievable. I still my use my 50x''s in a few rare applications based on the genre since these are soooo neutral compared to the 50x. However, that said the separation of instruments and clarity - Just EVERYTHING is incredible in comparison. If you hear about people complaining about bass - it''s cuz they''re bass heads and enjoy bass heavy headphones. If you''re looking for a neutral sound and truly going into the low end hifi headphone range. You can''t beat the sale on these.

All that said, I wouldn''t buy these at msrp I don''t think($250). There are probably better headphones at that price point and at that price point I''m testing headphones in store etc before purchasing. I''ve found these most enjoyable so far testing rock studio albums so far. Classical was slightly underwhelming. I can''t really go further into details yet though because I''ve owned these for less than 24hrs. It''s 1:30 AM and I don''t want to sleep because of these though.

Lighter and better build quality than 50x too!

Seit Ewigkeiten bin ich dankbarer Besitzer eines Sennheiser HD 520 II (offen). Das gute Teil tut noch immer seinen Dienst und erfreut durch wunderbare Auflösung, bequemen Sitz und erfreulich geringen Körperschall (kaum Übertragung von Geräuschen durch Berührung am Kabel und am Kopfhörer). Das nur als Basis-Info. Vor knapp zwei Jahren habe ich begonnen, nach einem Zweit-KH Ausschau zu halten. Bei einschlägigen Großmärkten mit einer gewissen Angebotsbreite ist die Qualität der Hörstände zumeist miserabel. Das ermöglicht kaum realistische Einschätzungen zum Klang der KH. Dennoch habe ich nach zunächst planloser Suche den Sony MDR-1A für mich eingekreist. Im angebotenen Sennheiser-Sortiment war irgendwie nix dabei oder halt oberhalb meiner angesteuerten Preisklasse. Viele andere Geräte im Regal war zum Teil erschreckend unausgewogen bis regelrecht schlecht. So kam ich nicht weiter. Suche vertagt. Im Oktober 2017 neuer Anlauf im Amazonas-Einzugsgebiet. Nach stundenlangem Lesen und Vergleichen von Rezensionen habe ich vier Kanditaten ins Haus geordert. Im Vergleich der Geräte möchte ich mich kurz fassen: 1. Audio Technica ATH-MSR7 High-Resolution (ca. 182,-) + tolles Klangbild (unten mehr dazu) + solide Verarbeitung und schönes Design + schwenkbare Hörmuscheln (praktisch zum Verstauen) + auswechselbares Kabel (3 Kabel) - etwas zu fester Sitz und Bügel etwas zu hart - deutlicher Körperschall 2. Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H6 2nd Generation (180,-) + solide Verarbeitung und schönes Design + schwankbare Hörmuscheln + auswechselbares Kabel + koppelbar mit weiterem KH zum gemeinsamen Hören - im Vergleich zu den anderen KH überraschend "verhangener" Klang - Ohrmuscheln grenzwertig klein 3. beyerdynamic DT 880 Edition 250 Ohm (189,-) + sowas von bequem!! + hohe Auflösung und Detailfülle - für meinen Geschmack etwas zu analytisch, es fehlt ein wenig Wärme - nicht ganz "mein" Design, ist halt Geschmackssache 4. Sony MDR-1A High Resolution (135,-) + schick! + bequem + für sich allein guter Klang, wenn auch schwächer als DT 880 und MSR7 - viel zu kurzes Spezialkabel und absolut unbefriedigende Antwort auf Anfrage beim Hersteller nach Verlängerungsalternativen Zuerst habe ich den B&O aussortiert. Im Vergleich zu den anderen KH gibt es meines Erachtens keine Musikrichtung, bei der der B&O die Nase vorn hätte. Der DT 880 bezaubert mit Details und Räumlichkeit, ist mir aber auf die Dauer zu "kalt". Da ich musikalisch sehr breit aufgestellt bin (s. u.), kann dieser KH nicht alles abdecken. Der Sony war meine Einstiegsdroge und hört sich wirklich gut an! Wenn ich ihn allein hörte, schien er genau das zu sein, was ich wollte: Schönes volles Klangbild, wärmende Tiefen und schöne Auflösung, ohne nervende Spitzen. Ab und an waren mir dann allerdings die Tiefen etwas zu unpräzise und irgendwie brummig. Damit kam der ATH-MSR7 besser zurecht (Hörtipp: "Shortline" von RY X). Auch in der Darstellung der Details blieb der Sony zunehmend hinter dem ATH zurück. Keine Frage, das ist Meckern auf hohem Niveau! Wenn Sia Furler beginnt, die ersten Worte ihres "Breathe me" zu flüstern, hört man auch beim Sony das leise Geräusch, wie sie bei jedem Wort ihre Zunge ganz sacht vom Gaumen löst, aber beim MSR7 ist es so, als würde sie das direkt neben meinem Ohr tun! In Olafur Arnalds "Living Room Songs" sind die Hintergrundgeräusche, das Klacken der Klaviertasten und -pedale, das Rascheln der Kleidung und andere "Spielgeräusche" so plastisch, als säße man im selben Raum. Und so weiter... Richtig geraten: ich habe mich letztlich für den Audio Technica ATH-MSR7 entschieden. Da ich ausschließlich stationär (über HiFi-Anlage) und dabei meist im Liegen höre, fallen der etwas straffe Sitz und der Körperschall weniger ins Gewicht als zunächst befürchtet. Ich meine auch, dass der Memoryschaum wirklich was bringt. "Heiße Ohren" vom längeren Tragen habe ich noch nicht bekommen. Resümee: Wer ein exzellent klingendes Mulitalent bis 200,- Euro sucht, sollte den ATH-MSR7 unbedingt mal zum Probehören einladen. Von mir 5 Sterne! Wen''s interessiert: zum Abschluss noch die Hörliste für meine Bewertung: Alter Bridge - blackbird Andreas Vollenweider - behind the gardens / behind the wall / under the tree Antonio Vivaldi - Die vier Jahrezeiten bear''s den - islands / red earth and pouring rain Dave Gahan & Soulsavers - angels & ghosts David Gilmour - rattle that lock Hans Zimmer - Interstellar OST Kiasmos - Kiasmos Muse - greatest hits Olafur Arnalds - living room songs Paul van Dyk - evolution Ray Wilson - Genesis vs. Stiltskin - 20 years and more / song for a friend Rae Morris - unguarded RY X - Dawn Sia - colour the small one The Weeknd - beauty behind the madness / starboy Zero 7 - :simple things 3 Doors Down - alle Alben ;-) Hab vllt. noch 1-2 Sachen vergessen, das sollte als Info zum Querschnitt aber reichen. Die Vorauswahl war nervig, aber das Probehören machte richtig Spaß ;-) So, nun hoffe ich, meine Rezi hilft Euch ein wenig weiter.

These headphones are not for everybody, but are perfect for my uses. First off, the sound. What you’ll get with these balanced, neutral headphones is clarity. As a listener of all kinds of metal and rock, the separation of instruments is a revelation. For the first time on portable headphones I’ve been able to hear all the guitar riffs and patterns of Dark Angel’s Darkness Descends. Suffocation’s Breeding the Spawn, meanwhile, no longer sounds like a muddy mess. Most portable headphones emphasise the bass and overshadow the mids. These cans really let them shine, perfect for the frequencies of electric guitar. There’s no roll off in the treble either, so percussion lovers will love the smashing high hats and cymbals. You’ll have gathered by now then that the MDR7s are probably not ideal for dance music or those that want a thumping bass. While perfectly serviceable to my ears, they’re a less exciting listen for these genres compared to my Momentum’s and other popular headphones. With so few MSR7s available to audition, it’s important people understand what sound they’ll be getting to avoid disappointment. These headphones are equally adept at home or mobile. No amp necessary to drive them, they sound great through a phone. I’ve also compared lossless files with compressed, and streamed over Spotify and Amazon. The sound holds up better than you might expect given the precision of these headphones.. With these being the noise cancelling variant I was apprehensive how much the sound profile would change with cancelling off. I’m delighted to say that aside from a slight reduction in volume, you’ll be hard-pressed to tell the difference. You can happily use these with a flat battery (and you’ll get around 35 hours) safe in the knowledge you’re getting a faithful sound. You can’t say that about other noise-cancelling cans that employ lots of processing to filter out the noise. The by-product of this is that the noise cancelling isn’t very powerful. It works best at removing lower frequencies, with a minimal reduction higher up. It’s light years away from the Sony XM3s I demoed recently (so effective I couldn’t even hear my own voice) but enough to dull the rattle of the tube train so that raising the volume (and potentially damage your hearing) isn’t necessary. Personally I find the uber cancelling efficiency of the XM3s or QC25/35 potentially hazardous in an urban environment, so for me the MSR7NC’s strike the right balance. My only criticism is that the noise cancelling amplifies the wind. I’ve had to turn it off several times in what were only moderately breezy conditions. Comfort: fine. I have average sized ears and they fit with room to spare. The headband exerts some pressure on the top of your head, but has never become uncomfortable even after a couple of hours. Your mileage may vary though. That these headphones will creak, however, is inevitable. I’ve sampled an older pair of MSR7s and as well as having peeling p-leather on the earcups they were noisy around the hinges. I’m fully expecting mine to go the same way over time. Otherwise these headphones are supposed to withstand a fair amount of abuse. No headband snapping or other significant faults I’ve read about, and these headphones have been around a while. Comes bundled with two 1.2m 3.5mm cables (one with inline remote) a USB charge cable, carry bag and aeroplane adapter. Box doesn’t come sealed, this is normal apparently and doesn’t indicate a return! Very happy overall, just be aware that what I value in my headphones may not be the same as you. Ostensibly, these are bass-light, creaky headphones with poor noise cancelling and a legacy (wired) connection! I will of course update this review should any glaring issues come to light.

A propos du casque Audio-Technica MSR7. Après plus d''un mois d''utilisation intensive et deux premiers commentaires, je peux désormais en parler avec plus de précisions. Coté mécanique du casque, j''ai résolu le grincement désagréable des rotules d''oreillettes avec une légère pulvérisation de WD40. Le grincement dû au frottement a totalement disparu, plus de bruit disgracieux. Coté confort, je ne ressens aucune pression sur les tempes ou sur la tête, même après plusieurs heures d''écoute, donc casque très confortable en ce qui me concerne. Coté audio c''est parfait, j''ai même l''impression que le casque se bonifie avec le temps. Dernièrement j''ai pu le comparer avec un de ses concurrents, chose que je n''avais pas pu faire avant de l''acheter, j''avais comme référence mon ancien Bose AE2 moins bon. Donc relié à la même source audio, un baladeur FIIO X1 II raccordé à un ampli Fiio A3 , lecture de fichiers audio FLAC au même volume sonore, le MSR7 est supérieur dans bien des domaines. Le son est plus neutre, plus équilibré, plus puissant et plus précis, je n''ai pas constaté de sibilance au niveau des aigus et les graves sont bien là où il faut sans être envahissants ni surfaits. Ceci est mon avis car je pense qu''il faut écouter et essayer avant d''acheter, bien entendu si vous le pouvez car peu d''endroits le proposent à l''écoute au détriment d''autres marques plus commerciales, c''est bien dommage car la comparaison est intéressante. En conclusion, je ne regrette absolument pas cet achat, l''Audio-Technica MSR7 est un très bon casque en comparaison à d''autres produits dans le même gamme de prix. Il faudra tout de même le relier à une bonne source audio avec de bons fichiers (FLAC ou WAV, éviter le MP3 de base), pour qu''il s''exprime pleinement. Il n''est pas fait pour de l''écoute sur smartphones ou autres... au risque de ne transmettre que des défauts. Si comme moi vous hésitez ou êtes perplexe au moment de l''achat, vous pouvez m''adresser vos questions je vous répondrai avec plaisir.

Good sound quality, but very tight headband on a large head like mine. Once again the one-size-fits-all assumption for headgear proves to be a little optimistic. Those with a big head will hear their blood pounding in their ears courtesy of the pressure this audio vice will exert. So probably not ideal all-day wear for the large of cranium; better off in bursts of an hour or two at a time. While you can bear to have them clamped around your head, you''ll enjoy clear, crisp sound. And one benefit of the, ahem, snug fit is that they do a good job of dulling outside noise. UPDATE: After two-and-a-half years of wearing them (indoors) for between fifteen and twenty hours every week, these headphones are still in excellent condition. Unfortunately they are also still agony to wear for more than an hour at a time. With the recent switch to working from home all day every day, these headphones were just too painful to be bearable, so I''ve laid them aside and bought a pair of Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones for all-day use. I''d say that the sound quality in the Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7GM is a little better (clearer midtones), but the Sony headphones are so much more comfortable over long periods that it''s worth the trade-off.
