Made from pure natural Teak, one of the three most precious woods in the world, the earcups allow the ATH-W1000Z to deliver a warm, natural and resplendent sound devoid of any superficiality.


Both of the headphones’ 53 mm drivers is engineered with a unified yoke, comprised of two magnetic circuit parts, that boosts magnetic flux density for increased efficiency and better sound quality. The drivers also feature high-quality, bobbin-wound OFC-7N voice coils that ensure nuanced sound reproduction.

“Double air damping system”

The ATH-W1000Z features the Double Air Damping System (D.A.D.S.) structure - featured across the entire Art Monitor range of headets from Audio-Technica - which provides deep bass reproduction.



Lightweight and highly rigid magnesium frames and baffles separated from the wood housings via a special “floating mount” system, help to reduce unwanted resonance.



Teak wood in its natural state (high density) is only used for certain rare instruments like guitars or bass instruments, because of its cost. It delivers exceptionally rich tone.



The ATH-W1000Z features the 3D wing support structure provides a great, comfortable fit making it feel as though the headphones are not there; only sound remains, allowing for prolonged use.



The 3.0m dual-sided, four-core parallel cable with a thermoplastic elastomer sheath to prevent tangling. The cable terminates in a 6.3mm gold-plated plug with a wooden sleeve.
