“Striped ebony housing”

The exclusive 53mm wide drivers are encased in beautiful wooden housing made of smooth ebony. The attractive looking housing is not only for aesthetic purposes but also delivers very high quality acoustic characteristics, allowing for a deep and very natural sound.

“Lambskin earpads”

The earpads of the ATH-W5000 headphones are incredibly comfortable. They are made from lambskin leather from Spain, which gives them extreme softness and comfort. Once the headphones are worn, the memory foam pads delicately marry to the ears to perfectly isolate outside noise while allowing the skin to breathe.

“Exclusive d.a.d.s. system”

The ATH-W5000 features the Double Air Damping System which also features across the full range of Audio-Technica Art Monitor Headphones to improve bass reproduction.


Floating mount system

Separating the magnesium frames from the wooden housing, thus removes the transmission of unwanted vibration to obtain a sound of a high purity.


OFC-8N voice coils

The OFC-8N voice coils are used to maintain optimum efficiency in the signal transfer process.


3D WING Structure

ATH-W5000 is equipped with 3D Wing Structure that allows a perfect fit of the headphones, whatever shape the head, while its lightweight structure makes the headphones comfortable to wear for extended periods.


Luxurious carry case
