With hundreds of headphones here at HeadRoom available for the tasting, every once in a while one floats through under the radar. Dang it! How'd I miss the Audio Technica ATH-FC700A.
|[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="298" caption="Frequency response of the Audio Technica ATH-FC700A"][/caption]Fortunately all the fumbling goes away with time, and what remains is really surprisingly good sound. These headphones are slightly more lively sounding than either the PX 200-II or K81DJ overall, but also deliver plenty of wallop in the bass. The mid-range is remarkably flat and neutral making these a particularly good headphone for vocals and unamplified instruments at this price. All the folks here that participated in the listening tests were surprised how well these little cans held up to the competition, and we're very happy to offer a strong recommendation for these cans ... especially with acoustic music.|
