If you’re looking for a really, really serious pair of headphones, look no further than this new limited edition model from Audio-Technica. The ATH-A900ti is a special version of the company’s A900 audiophile headphones in a special titanium finish.
The headphones’ Neodymium drivers offer an astounding 5Hz to 42kHz frequency response range, letting your ears in on the highest highs and lowest lows. Sensitivity is an impressive 103dB, and they can handle up to 2-watts of input power, which could be enough to blow your eardrums into oblivion. The ‘phones feature large, comfortable earcups to keep all the good sounds in and the bad sounds out.
Normally, you’d have to go to Japan if you wanted to get your hands on these, but gadget importer Audiocubes has a limited number of these high-end headphones available for pre-order in North America for $499. If that’s too rich for your budget, you can always pick up the standard A900 headphones for $179. They offer the same innards, but no fancy titanium case.
