Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000X: Flagship headphones capable of reaching peak power of 2 W

Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000X heads the company’s Air Dynamic series. These open-back monitor headphones embody the best technology and expertise from Audio-Technica.

The stereo phones feature new large 53mm wideband drivers with powerful permendur (iron/cobalt/vanadium) magnets and voice coils wound using high-purity OFC (7N) oxygen-free copper wires for more efficient signal transmission. The result is precise, detailed sound with high resolution and deep, well-balanced bass.

The Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000X have large cups, the outer parts of which are lightweight metal grilles with oval branding plaques attached to them. The earcups are equipped with durable, comfortable suede ear pads with soft filling. The headband includes two elastic metal arcs, as well as a proprietary 3D Wing Support Housing, consisting of two “paws” (with soft pads) that can move in three planes. This self-adjusting system provides an exceptionally comfortable fit without any pressure and helps eliminate mechanical vibrations. The design uses magnesium alloy elements to reduce the total weight of the model, which is 265 g. The headphones allow you to enjoy your favorite music for hours without feeling tired.


Audio-Technica’s flagship ATH-AD2000X is capable of reaching peak power of 2 W, has a high sensitivity of 103 dB and a wide frequency range from 5 Hz to 45 kHz. The headphone impedance is 40 ohms, however, to fully unlock their potential, it is advisable to use a separate specialized amplifier.

Stereo phones have a straight, non-removable, two-way cable 3 meters long with a protective elastomer sheath that prevents tangling. The cores are made of OFC copper, which improves electrical conductivity. Uses a gold-plated 3.5mm plug. A 6.3mm adapter is included.

The Audio-Technica ATH-AD2000X excels at reproducing classical music. Live voices and the sound of acoustic instruments are reproduced flawlessly. The headphones work well with other genres, providing absolutely clean, open, natural and natural sound with smooth tonal balance, wide dynamic range, large-scale stage and accurate localization of images in space.
