Audio Technica ath-MSR7b, takes the popular and top reviewed MSR7 and significantly improves on the comfort and build quality. MSR7b feature significantly lighter weight and improved ear pads, great for long term wear comfort.
The MSR7b are wired with dual sided cables and include a 3.5mm plug cable as well as a new balanced cable with a 4.4mm plug - found on an increasing number of amps and portable players. The cables are spot on too - very soft and light but they still feel durable.
Easy to drive and works well with cell phones and computers. This is a very balanced sounding, reference type headphone, great for a wide variety of music and all day use. Ideal when used with a quality dac - we suggest the newer iFi dacs: ultra compact Go Blu, the tiny & excellent Uno, or popular Fiio BTR7 THX,
two cables included, 3.5mm plug & 4.4mm balanced plug
features higher end 45mm drivers with diamond-like-carbon coating, for a faster, more rigid driver and lower distortion
reduced clamping pressure
Neoprene carry bag included - these fold flat and fit great in a computer bag / briefcase
I am accustomed to the “AT house sound” but was surprised to find good levels of nuanced bass. Their light weight and relatively compact folding will have me conflicted as to whether to pack the MSR 7bs or some IEMs. Remarkably, they arrived in 4 days, even with the devastation from flooding in the BC interior. Thanks much Travis.
I was amazed at how much better balanced headphones sound. When i received these, as well as the Hiby New R6 I purchased from you folks, I was amazed at the sound quality of both items. The Headphone bar was very helpful, all throughout my research and subsequent purchase. Thank you guys, Cheers, Dale
The Audio Technica ATH-MSR7b is a gem of a headphone which not only sounds wonderful but is very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. And while I do understand that this particular model is a lower price offering then some of the Focal or Audeze models, the performance is more than I expected. For some, seeing the Hi-Res Audio logo may prove a tempting factor in purchasing this item. Either way, you will not be disappointed.
Headphone bar has a great selection of headphones and this is a model that stands well with the others. Also, it is worth mentioning that the shipping from Headphone Bar was very quick as my order arrived in less than a week and I have enjoyed using the Audio Technica ATH-MSR7b as it is simply a great headphone.
