Audio-Technica ATH-ADX5000 Reference Open Back Headphones


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.

    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.


    Packaged in a luxury protective storage case, the ADX5000 also includes a 6NOFC cable with a machined stainless steel 6.3mm plug to avoid resonance and provide stable sound reproduction.


    Well known for its durability, Alcantara material is used on the earpads and headband to deliver outstanding wearing comfort for an extended home listening experience. Alcantara is used in the automotive and fashion industries combining durability and high quality texture.


    Combining the efficiency of a honeycomb punched design with a closed-side housing to avoid side ventilation, this structure provides perfectly balanced audio without any air pressure loss.


    Every ADX5000 headphone is individually identified by a laser etched serial number.
