Audio-Technica ATH-W1000Z: Headphones with spectacular earcups made of teak wood

The Audio-Technica ATH-W1000Z headphones attract attention with spectacular lacquered earcups made of teak wood, which is one of the three most valuable wood species in the world. The company emphasizes that thanks to this material it is possible to obtain a warm natural sound with natural rich bass. Enhancing low frequencies is facilitated by DADS (Double Air Damping System) technology, which is a system of double damping of secondary sound vibrations, which helps to minimize the acoustic resonances of the cups and achieve excellent realistic sound with deep bass delivery. The emitters are 53 mm speakers with highly efficient magnetic systems, which enhance the magnetic flux density and improve sound quality. The drivers use coils wound with highly purified OFC copper wire, which has a positive effect on the transmission of musical nuances.

The model features a permanent, double-sided 3-meter cable with four purified copper conductors (OFC-6N + OFC) and an outer protective sheath of thermoplastic elastomer that prevents tangling. The cutting is done using a 6.3 mm jack placed in a wooden case. The headphones do an excellent job of playing HD audio formats, as they have a wide frequency range, the upper limit of which reaches 42 kHz. The impedance is 43 ohms, i.e. These stereo phones are not a heavy load for amplifiers.


Durable elastic headband arcs are made of light magnesium alloy and are connected to the cups via a “floating” anti-resonance mount. A special 3D Wing Support mechanism is attached to the arches, which includes two “legs” capable of moving in three planes with soft damper pads. This system provides excellent comfort and automatic adjustment to the required head size, and also reduces the influence of mechanical vibrations. The earcups are equipped with soft-filled synthetic leather ear pads.

The Audio-Technica ATH-W1000Z is capable of delivering rich, dynamic and musical sound with clear, transparent highs, a slight warm accent in the midrange, a wide stage and deep bass that will appeal to even sophisticated audiophiles.
