    We've just had a visit from our Audio-Technica sale rep and he mentioned that the new ATH-W5000 headphone is now available. With a Recommended Retail Price of £699.95 this is competition for the equally expensive Grado GS1000.

    We're big fans of Audio-Technica, so we'll most likely be stocking this high end headphone (even if it's partly out of curiosity to see how they sound!).

    Below in the official sales description:

    Equipped with striped ebony housing for superb acoustic characteristics, the W5000 dynamic headphones achieve new levels of audiophile sound quality and listening comfort. These star headphones deliver formidable power, ultra-comfortable fit and stunning design.

    Audio-Technica's unique Wing Support Housing vibration-proof mechanism (PAT) gives comfortable support for a better listening experience and the patented Double Air Damping System provides deep natural bass reproduction.

    The W5000s come with a high quality durable hard carrying case and cable storage bag.
