Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9 Headphones Review

The ATH-ESW9s are likely priced outside the reach of the average consumer.

Tour

The Audio-Technica ATH-ESW9s are predominantly black and brown, with a reddish-brown, wooden exterior to the outside of their cups.

The insides are a black leather material covering a small amount of padding.The bottom of the ear cups have small cord guards that are minimally rigid.

In the Box

You will find two lonely items in the ATH-ESW9s' box: the headphones themselves, and a lamb skin pouch.

Durability

We didn't see any specific durability issues on the ATH-ESW9s. They had passable cord guards, the cups met well at the band, and the band itself seemed durable. Overall, the headphones were solidly above average.

Aesthetics

The ATH-ESW9s are classy headphones. These are the headphones you should listen to when you throw on your red smoking jacket and want to listen to some Vivaldi while you peruse the paintings in your study. Interestingly enough, the ATH-ESW9s are ergonomically designed for high brows (this is a joke, we have no idea if brow position was considered during the manufacturing process).
