Audio Technica ATH-EW9 review

Featherlight 'phones that use real cherry wood to enhance their sound; awesomely detailed performers Tested at £159.00

Our Verdict

Featherlight 'phones that use real cherry wood to enhance their sound and looks.

These featherlight 'phones use real cherry wood to enhance their sound (and looks), and a cunning slide-fit design to keep them in place.

They're awesomely detailed performers, but can sound harsh.
