      • Solid wooden enclosures house these headphones, yet don't add the heft you might expect -- the W1000s are still fairly lightweight. Inside the cans sit luxurious earcups, which are both exceptionally soft and comfortable for long periods, particularly as they press only very gently against the skull. A 3m oxygen-free cable comes with a 6.3mm gold-plated plug fitted as standard and is wrapped in a tough cloth. Cloth is more prone to wear and tear in time if not carefully cared for and as headphones can last years we're not fond of this quality. Moving inside the headphones, you've got a 53mm driver backed by a neodymium magnet, responding to frequencies between 5Hz-40kHz, plus a sensitivity of 102dB and an impedance rated at 40ohms. Like the W5000s, the W1000s are not the loudest or most sensitive reference-grade headphones we've heard, but can handle a high power input of 2,000mW at 1kHz.One-year Audio-Technica manufacturer's warranty.
