"The ADX5000 is extraordinarily revealing and open – especially through the upper mid and high frequencies – and delivers a breathtakingly crisp and clean presentation. It has a responsive low end that has satisfying extension and just the right amount of slam, a balance that is not easy to achieve."

A landmark in open-back headphone performance, the ATH-ADX5000 provides a new reference in home listening audio, blending Japanese craftsmanship with Audio-Technica’s pursuit for perfect sound.

With newly developed core-mount technology, enlarged 58mm integrated driver units, tungsten coated diaphragm all encompassed behind a honeycomb punched design, this flagship headphone marks a culmination of the latest in audiophile listening.

  • Tick Newly developed Core Mount Technology (PAT.P) for a wide range audio reproduction
  • Tick Integrated driver unit design for maximum reduction of unwanted vibration
  • Tick 58 mm driver unit integrated in baffle utilises a Permendur Magnetic Circuit
  • Tick Tungsten coated diaphragm provides high rigidity for an improved transient response
  • Tick New honeycomb punched housing design without side ventilation to avoid undesirable air pressure loss from inside
  • Tick Japan made - Each housing is carefully hand assembled in Tokyo
  • Tick Magnesium frame and arm results in a rigid, thin and lightweight construction
  • Tick Each unit is individually identified by a laser etched serial number

Integrated driver unit

The driver unit design is an integrated construction. Diaphragm, voice coil, baffle and magnet are all combined in to one unit to reduce unwanted vibrations and to save unnecessary weight from the removal of screw clamps. Made of PPS (Polypenylene Sulfide) / glass fibre, the baffle is highly rigid to provide stable movement of the diaphragm.

Core Mount Technology

The driver unit is located in an optimal tuning position within the housing to improve airflow efficiency contributing to a highly transparent mid to high-frequency sound reproduction and a rich, precise bass sound.
