Hey guys, I was almost certain with my decision on what to buy after loads or research. I was going with audio technica's ath-w1000x's. I was going to have them delivered to a usa adress by amazon and my friend over there would bring it to me. (to avoid tremendous shipping costs and taxes and trouble at the customs)
Then, I realized audio technica has a not-that-much-more-expensive pair called the ath-w5000. They look almost exactly the same structurally. The color is darker on the newer higher-end one. Whathifi has reviewed the older ath-w1000x and awarded it five stars. They haven't reviewed the newer ath-w5000. My guess is that they would sound pretty much the same. I believe that higher price is an indicative of higher quality.
Anybody with any knowledge about the ath-w5000?
