Audio-Technica ATH-DSR7BT Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Pure Digital DriveThe ATH-DSR7BT over-ear wireless headphones gift your ears with Digital Sound Reality. These innovative headphones feature Audio-Technica's new Pure Digital Drive system, allowing them to operate without the sound-degrading D/A converter found in conventional wireless headphones. By utilizing Trigence Semiconductor's Dnote chipset, the ATH-DSR7BT headphones are capable of receiving a Bluetooth wireless transmission, processing the digital audio signal and transferring it to the drivers where the digital pulses of the chipset move the voice coil and diaphragm forward and backward to create the sound waves heard by the listener. The Pure Digital Drive system likewise depends on re-engineered 45 mm True Motion Drivers, which feature specially designed diaphragms and lightweight, bobbin-wound voice coils to deliver incredibly nuanced, high-resolution sound reproduction. A pair of acoustic resistors controls the airflow in front of and behind the diaphragm to ensure a natural, balanced sound, and the entire driver assembly is housed within a layered aluminum structure that minimizes unwanted resonance and isolates the electric circuitry from the housing's acoustic space, resulting in optimal phase and transient response. The Pure Digital Drive system also enables the ATH-DSR7BT to overcome the sonic limitations of conventional Bluetooth wireless transmissions by supporting the 24-bit/48kHz Q...

The headphones did not come with the original box but with a white box stating that it has been factory renewed, which is a bit of a downer but I guess that's what I get for the price. Inside it includes the USB A to USB b cable (which you can use to both charge and listen), the user manual, a carrying pouch, and the headphones itself. They all are nicely wrapped in plastic bags and are not wrinkled at all, which hopefully means that they have been handled with care.
Now to the headphones. Man, it looks beautiful. If it isn't for the box and the plastic bags, I would have thought that it is brand new. There were completely no scratches at all - no sign of wear. The buttons are responsive and all, and it's clamping force is still tight as hell, as if it wasn't even used at all. The appearance of it looks perfect for my unit.
For the audio quality, all I can say is..."clean." It's crisp and clear and watching all the other reviewers say that it somewhat lacks bass, I think it is somewhat true but not entirely, at least if comparing it to mainstream headphones for outdoor use like the latest Sony anc headphones. This one just has a flat sound signature. It sounds really balanced and smooth across the field. Its bass is nice and tight, mids and vocals are clear with incredible detail, and the highs are pleasant and crisp. I tried it wired while gaming, and oh my lord the bass, yea it's definitely there. To all that says the bass is not present, this thing just blasted my ears with a ton - at least way more than my old Sennheiser Momentum 1.0. (I know it is questionable using these to game but hey it works.)
Comfort-wise it is much better than my old Sennheiser Momentum 1.0. The ear cups of it are much bigger and softer and the padding on the headband is superb. However, compared to Sony's 100NM3, the ear cup is not as deep as Sony's and not as soft. But overall, it is very comfortable and can be worn for some hours - like 2hrs - due to its not-so-deep earcups, the drivers slightly touch my ears and over time it starts hurting a bit. The clamping force also came into play but it will loosen up over time.
Moving on to the "flaws" that came in with this renewed product. The USB B connection isn't very secure in my unit. When plugged it charges fine, but it couldn't transmit any audio. It was only after a long frustration and messing around with it, I realized that the female USB B port in the headphone was slightly damaged or just slightly out of place. All I had to do was adjust the connection to a certain angle and it connects just fine. Luckily the connection was tight and it doesn't come off so I didn't have to readjust it every time. Just throwing the cable over my shoulders did the trick and I could enjoy my High Res Audio with no problem.
Overall, this is the greatest value I have ever gotten. A 300 dollars worth of headphones just for 60? Shut up and take my money. However, it is still a renewed product after all. Expect it to come with some flaws but if it didn't, good for you, you just won a jackpot.
It seems the main reason(s) that buyers don't like these phones is because they are slightly behind the curve in the convenience end of Bluetooth tech, which is legit, because that's sorta why Bluetooth exists, right? They take longer to charge; doesn't have the usual 1/8" direct connectivity when not using them with Bluetooth, you have to use a mini USB connector; not really made for running (at all, I suspect), and on and on. But these things were listing out at 300 bucks as recently as a month ago, and there's a reason--they sound great, I mean, you can listen to classical or jazz through these things and hear a lot. None of that boomy, "enhanced bass" BS. I would give them 4 1/2 stars, 'cause at the 60 buck price point, these are INFINITELY beyond anything else in sound. If I were spending 300, I'd probably shop around, but I doubt if anything you'd find at that price point would actually SOUND that much better; it'd just do the convenience stuff mentioned above better...
I’ve been looking for a nice set of Bluetooth headphones for work and saw these, decided to give them a shot. I was surprised pleasantly with the sound coming out of these. They sound great with a very full spectrum. I liked the idea of the digital drive, and I have to say, they nailed it. At least for me these are a win. I also liked the idea of being able to plug them in via USB and get hi res sound. I have not been able to figure that part out on my Mac yet, but I look forward to trying it on my Windows computer when I get back into the office. The battery life seems good and they are comfortable to listen for a couple of hours at a time. I haven’t tried them for meetings or calls yet. The price was good as “Renewed” and I am happy with my purchase. They look and feel brand new with no signs of wear.
I have to admit that I bought them but I did not expect much from them, but well it is not much money but I got a good surprise, I am impressed, I collect headphones, I have openback and closeback
From thousands of dollars to super cheap that are not bad because they are cheap, some are super quality koss pro or superlux with upgrade pads both but those are open back
in close back I have very few but among them I have: (after listening to more than a hundred)
Meze 99 classic , Sennheiser HD8 and PXC550, Sony MDR -1ABT ,AKG K361, 1MORE, Marshall, Master & Dynamics MW40, Blue Mo-Fi and ELLA , Even H4, PLT Back Beat Pro2 E.P. ,Audio Technical ATH M50 ,Oppo MP3, Audeze Mobius , Neumann NDH20, Foxtex Purple Heart ,And if I have to add that they are cheaper than 100 dollars and bluetooth they have no comparison, they sound better , they sound better than most of them and especially much better ATH-DSR9BT ($400) I think I won the lottery sound incredible I have no more words
I own several wireless headphones including the Sony WH-1000xm3 and the Audio Technica ATH-M50xBT but this one outshines each of them in the area of clarity and detail. The mids and the highs come thru crystal clear and there is just enough bass to round out the sound. I only wish this headphone had active noise cancellation and a audio jack. I would recommend this purchase.
Disappointed with music sound quality through BT. Please there is NC, MSRP is rediculous IMO. Sound quality with USB cable improves quite a bit, but the point is BT.
The headphones came in plain packaging but the contents in the box looked to be all new. The headphones did not show any signs of usage, looking brand new. The headphones sound great, clarity and soundstage stand out, though I find it too bright at times. However, they are not great with passive noise isolation. Best used at home and not for travel. Overall for $60 this is a great deal.
I loved the quality of the sound, but the dropouts killed the usefulness and after two pairs I am not ordering a third.
