- Take your listening to Hi-Res Audio status with the ATH-W1000Z audiophile headphones, the 11th generation of our prized W Series. Featuring uniquely grained wood housings made of pure teak – one of the three most precious woods in the world – these headphones deliver warm, resplendent audio, aided by the wood’s ability to reflect thick, natural bass sound. The bass extension is further improved by our exclusive D.A.D.S. (Double Air Damping System) housing structure.
Both of the headphones’ 53 mm drivers is engineered with a unified yoke, comprised of two magnetic circuit parts, that boosts magnetic flux density for increased efficiency and better sound quality. The drivers also feature high-quality, bobbin-wound OFC-7N voice coils that ensure nuanced sound reproduction.
Lightweight and highly rigid magnesium frames and baffles, affixed to the wood housings via a special “floating mount” system, help to reduce unwanted resonance. Resonance is further reduced by our 3D wing support mechanism, which also provides a great, comfortable fit that can be enjoyed for hours on end.
The ATH-W1000Z comes equipped with a 3.0 m dual-sided, four-core parallel cable with a thermoplastic elastomer sheath to prevent tangling. The cable terminates in a 6.3 mm (1/4") gold-plated plug with a wooden sleeve.
