WINNER: Audio-Technica ATH-A900X
Because competition in the headphone market is so tough, it takes a special pair of cans to win this award – and Audio-Technica’s ‘A900X is precisely this. It sounds clean, open and smooth with oodles of detail and insight – and you’ll want to listen all day and all of the night thanks to the high level of comfort, courtesy of a clever headband design. Build is excellent, too. A worthy winner.
