Overview headphone Audio-Technica ATH-SR9: portable “monitors”

Japanese autogiant with the speaker called the Audio-Technica was founded in distant 1962, but to this day pleases us with interesting devices. Starting with the production of pickups for phonograph records, the company soon began development of portable turntables and professional microphones. It is now Audio-Technica is more known for its headphones: glory came in 2007, when the company released headphones for monitoring and mixing, ATH-M50.

But today we will not talk about this model (and not the successor to the ATH-M50X). Today’s guest is no less worthy is a full-sized headphone ATH-SR9, which will give odds to many competitors in its segment.


  • Emitter: 45 mm, dynamic
  • Sensitivity: 97 dB
  • Impedance: 47Ω
  • Frequency range: 5 Hz – 45 kHz
  • Cable: removable, with A2DC connectors and remote, 1.2 m
  • Microphone type: condenser
  • Maximum power: 1500 mW
  • Weight: 270 g

The package

For the brand box Audio-Technica is another (already black) box, which conceals the headphones are neatly Packed in a hard case with the logo of the manufacturer.

Actually, the last (and a 3.5 mm cable with the user manual) and is limited package contents ATH-SR9. In the removable ear pads need not here, as in the adaptors, which have in the Arsenal of every audiophile. The presence of removable cable can not but rejoice, because it is a real springboard for experimentation with sound. The cable, incidentally, is equipped with microphone and remote control playback — it provides easy connection of headphones to the smartphone.

Appearance and ergonomics

With than the ATH-SR9 sure no problem, so it is with the design. Headphones produced incredibly efficiently — all parts fit with the precision of a perfectionist, and a large amount of metal in the construction makes it even more reliable. The weight is good, not much affected.

Headband and ear cushions made of leather. The bowls are large in size to even big ear fits in them without a problem — in this feature of models of monotone type. Put them on, and seem to isolate themselves from the rest of the world, alone with music. Due to the high quality of the materials used and decent ergonomics can sit in the headphones, many hours (most importantly, even after that, the head and the ears will not sweat).

The ear pads are moderately hard to and control over the bass was, and wasn’t feeling that low-frequency “hammering in the skull”. A comfortable fit is largely facilitated by the possibility to rotate bowl in both directions. Therefore, this model is suitable for the students with any size head and ears, what can be said about those in-ear headphones.

The Japanese in General lately pleasing design experiments, and it concerns not only audio equipment, and even cars. Design ATH-SR9 admirable at first sight, this balance between convenience and futuristic very difficult to find.


If you look under the ear pads, you can immediately understand how tech ATH-SR9. The voice coil is wound with wire made from oxygen-free copper OFC-7N for best conductivity and Hi-Res speakers with high-performance magnetic system with iron core to maximize the sound output. Membrane, incidentally, is coated with a special material, Diamond-like Carbon.

The secret of the success model not only in lightweight construction cups, but also in a lack of different rattles (again we must pay tribute to the build quality). The “heart” headphones are a 45-millimeter driver TrueMotion — they are especially precise and smooth work on all frequencies.

But this technological “filling” of the headphone does not end there: not only is the sound at high frequencies is improved through the use of diamond-like carbon coating of the diaphragm, and the speaker acoustically balanced thanks to the technology of the Midpoint Mounting. All of this allowed the engineers at Audio-Technica headphones to the maximum to balance and make them universal.

As sound?

It’s a natural question after such a baggage of the technology used. To unleash the full potential of the ATH-SR9, we decided to use a new product from Astell&Kern portable audio player KANN. Its important that both devices are peers, so the levels are consistent with each other.

Of course, in addition to FLAC, with a few to listen to not want anything more. The tracks are pleasantly surprised by the detail and incredible high frequency — hard to say what the headphones in the segment fulfill them better. MIDs are balanced and clean. The bass is not overloaded: low frequency sound without any accents, what may disappoint fans of hardcore hip-hop. Headphones are clearly designed for versatility, and is undoubtedly the engineers succeeded.

Despite the fact that Astell&Kern KANN many possibilities to customize the sound equalizer for his “services” to resort didn’t have. ATH-SR9 without this sound level — it is just the case when you can connect headphones to the source and not to bother with the settings.

For example, collected a few songs.

Theory of a Deadman — Say Goodbye. If the appearance of the first album of this band had a hand Than Kruger of Nikelback, with the fifth helped himself Alice Cooper. Yes, some of the composition of the group you can safely send to the festival of country music, but clearly not this one — such a bright combination of vocals, bass guitar, jazz and Blues makes shivers up the skin.

Got Take Me To Church. Keen on Church chorales, Blues, jazz and soul Andrew Hozier-Byrne has recorded a sensual song that instantly won the hearts of millions of listeners. This composition allows to understand clearly all the benefits of treble in the ATH-SR9, but I have to give credit to the source.

Benjamin Clementine — Cornerstone. Why not test this couple with one of the best compositions of the musician who draws inspiration from the best authors of the piano — Chopin, Ravel, and Satie? Benjamin Clementine has long been not singing a Cappella, but his vocals makes you listen over and over again tracks one after the other. And I must admit, here is our today’s hero is surprised: piano worked on 5 out of 5, vocals — even better. So their use with classical music is the place to be.


Audio-Technica ATH-SR9 is a very interesting headphone in terms of design and in terms of sound flow. Despite the fact that the model is more universal, it is not devoid of its nature: every time listening to familiar tracks, if you open them from the other side.

It is worth noting that the best such headphones would feel at home or at a recording Studio, but sometimes they can “walk” paired with a smartphone — no wonder the engineers wanted to create a model for everyday use.


  • Crystal clear high frequencies
  • Genre versatility
  • Comfort
  • The quality of the product


  • Brand MMCX connectors instead
  • Perhaps too large to be portable

For music lovers who prefer music of different genres and styles, these headphones will certainly be an excellent option. The price they have, of course, relevant, but Japanese quality, however, has never been cheap. All the details from the link below.

  1. I discovered your blog site on google and check a few of your early posts Continue to keep up the very good operate I just additional up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader Seeking forward to reading more from you later on!?

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish For sin is the transgression of the law We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
