In the years 2014 and 2015, most designer headphones like Beats have taken all the attention. They’ve certainly taken the spotlight away from brands like Sennheiser and Audio-Technica who always used to focus on sound quality. This shift in power has meant that more and more people look at the appearance before anything else when buying a new pair of headphones.
As a consequence, these highly famous brands have also started to focus on the look. This has led to the creation of headphones that look great but also perform superbly. One such product is the ATH-MSR7 by Audio-Technica.
This $250 product is associated with eye-catching looks and top of the range performance. The MSR7s are made almost entirely of metal and the overall design looks of highly premium quality. The ear cups also feel like they’ve been made with very soft and luxurious material.
Being an Audio-Technica product, the sound has to be great and I found this to be true. This model offers highly detailed sound that is clear. This is delivered in an excellent combination with a tight bass.
If you end up going for this, you’ll also get an attractive carry pouch. I think at the price of $250, this is a superb product. The only problem is that the comfort could’ve been a tiny bit better and the tightly clamping headband is to be blamed for this.
