Audio-Technica has introduced the ATH-R70x, their first professional open-back reference headphone, joining the new ATH-M70x in A-T's flagship professional headphone lineup. This is the story in their own words...

Featuring Audio-Technica's comfortable, self-adjusting 3D Wing Support Headband Design that adapts to automatically fit any wearer with no need for adjustment, the R70x also has breathable fabric ear-pads, providing prolonged comfort for continuous use in professional environments. The proprietary driver unit, specially designed for the R70x, is the culmination of over 40 years of headphone design and manufacturing experience.

The ATH-R70x employs high-efficiency magnets and a pure alloy magnetic circuit design, reducing distortion and ensuring accurate and extended high frequency response. Use of its carbon composite resin improves structural rigidity to provide detailed transient response. The headphones' acoustically transparent aluminum honeycomb mesh housing provides a natural and spacious open-back sound. The ATH-R70x's feather-light weight (approx. 210 g w/o cable), combined with robust construction, is perfectly suited for professional use. It also features a unique dual-sided detachable locking cable that is L/R signal-independent, always ensuring proper stereo orientation.

ATH-R70x Specifications:

  • Driver: 45 mm
  • Frequency Response: 5-40,000 Hz
  • Maximum Input Power; 1,000 mW
  • Sensitivity: 98dB at 1 kHz
  • Impedance: 470 ohms


Pricing and Availability:
The ATH-R70x will ship in March 2015 with a U.S. MSRP of $489.00.
