Excellent value headphones
I've lost count of the number of headphones I've bough over the last 40 years. I even spent over $1000 for a pair in the 1980s. These Audio Technica ATH-MSR7 are hands down the best I've heard. Ignore the people saying that they're bass light. It's simply untrue. Their sound is balanced and at times annoyingly accurate as they reveal sub-par source material. My only criticism would be that the clamping force on your ears is a little high, but I'm sure that will lessen with use. At way under $300 they are a incredible value. I must go now to listen to more music.
When you need to hear EVERYTHING
The MSR7 has been a favourite in the audiophile community since it was released, impressing many with its accurate, detailed sound.
This is Audio Technica's top of the line closed back headphone and the price reflects this, coming in at a RRP of $350, although it can be found as low as $280 if you shop around.
So what do you get for your cash?

Great pair of headphones
- Comfortable for short listens
- Highs and mids are very clear and detailed
- Good looks
- Head clamp becomes a bit too tight after listening for longer periods of time
- Bass is lacking a bit
- A bit heavier compared to other headphones, due to quality of construction
Good sound but peeling off of ear pads and headband after first month
I bought this headphones for the sound. It sounded more warm and detailed of my old Roland so I took the bite and bought it in Japan during a trip. I used it daily while there and after flying back into Australia it started to peel off. The headband and ear cups both started to peel leaving myriads of pieces of black plastic material everywhere. In my backpack, around all house, in my car. Because of this I decided to complete peel off with my hands the rest of the black plastic material leaving a light gray colored cloth on the head band and e...ar cups. Now the ear cups are replaceable but not the head band which looks terrible and cheap. Looks like a pair of cans just picked up from a rubbish bean instead I paid 300 AUD for them just a month earlier. This was not my first experience with this problem. I also own an old audiotecnica ATH-ES7 and it did exactly the same thing but after 3 months of use. I thought this problem was been resolved but apparently not. I advice everyone not to buy these headphones if you care also about looks because the headband it is not exchangeable and it will peel off very soon. I use them inside the house sometime but have been replaced promptly by a Sony MDR Z7 which is a jewel of art for construction and material used. Not longer audiotecnica for me.

Great Hi Res Headphone
Truly amazing headphones. Worth every penny! Remarkably clear, balanced sound. If you only want to thump the bass you might be disappointed. These are for people who know that mids and highs exist too, and recognize the importance of them coming together evenly and unperverted
