Audio Technica MSR7 is designed to give you honest, detailed, authentic sound, exactly how artists intend to convey their music.
Along with Sony, Audio Technica is one of Japan’s leading brand specializing in audio gear. MSR7 is the company’s flagship consumer headphone, with well balanced “honest” sound.
MSR7 is a wired, over-ear, close-back, high-resolution audio headphone, that is designed to give you honest, detailed, authentic sound, exactly how artists intend to convey their music. It is commonly used by music enthusiasts for home studio mixing, due to the accuracy of its sound.
The headphone is equipped with exclusive 45 mm True Motion Drivers, which uses lightweight voice coils, a custom-mounted printed circuit board and custom designed diaphragm to improve transient response and minimize sound distortion for rich, detailed audio reproduction.
It is designed for snug fit, but quite comfortable to wear for a long period of time. The styling and build of MSR7 rival the flagship headphones from competing brands like Beats and Sony. MSR7 is a solid no-nonsense, well made, well performing headphone that is well priced at around $200 (street). It is our recommendation for over-ear wired headphone for the $200 range.
If you opt for more fancy features such as wireless connectivity, active noise cancellation, luxurious finishes, and exclusive industrial designs, then take a look Bose QuietComfort 35, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H9 and Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless. These models offer sounds that are more colored yet forgiving, resulting in more entertaining listening experience.
