Product Information

With newly designed drivers and in-line mic and control, the ATH-WS1100iS Solid Bass over-ear headphones give you portable, smartphone-compatible headphones with Hi-Res Audio reproduction and truly deep bass. The 53 mm Deep Motion Drivers, designed exclusively for the ATH-WS1100iS, feature an ultra-powerful magnetic circuit that works to deliver highly accurate audio with a wide frequency response, while the large diaphragm surface area of the drivers causes considerable air movement, helping to produce a rich, textured bass sound.

The rigid housings of the ATH-WS1100iS, which incorporate Audio-Technica’s new Extra Bass Venting System, also contribute to the headphones’ audio clarity. Each housing features an aluminum stabilizer ring that helps produce clear mid-to-high frequencies. Vents, including extra side vents not found in other models that utilize the Bass Venting System, are positioned for optimal control of air movement inside the housings, aiding in the reproduction of high-fidelity bass sound. Exclusive dual-layer earpads, comprised of a firm internal layer and a soft outer layer, provide excellent sound isolation with amazing comfort.

The detachable 1.2 m (3. 9') cable includes an in-line mic and control that lets you answer calls and handle media playback on your smartphone or other portable device. A convenient carrying pouch is also included.

Would definitely buy again; Completely satisfied
These headphones are stunning, the package alone was pretty incredible. So far as I am pushing a range of sound these babies are conquering everything I am throwing at them. They are well priced by comparison to there competition *looking at you Astro*

The audio range is excellent, loud highs, defined mids and firm Bass. They don't rattle to much either.

The faux leather may not be for everyone though, so far they are pretty comfy. They are also pretty good at staying on your head through bumping your head and jumping around, so I am very satisfied these so far :)

Oh, and they shipped early, said 5 business days, got them early on the 3rd day. Thanks Audio Technica for the awesome product!

I'm Looking Forward For Premium Designs
This was my first time using solid bass series. Design looks so premium, only it needs to design a bit of metallic premium finishing touch. Right after I've unboxing the package, I was really speechless.. everythings looks so classic and premium.

For the sound, I've used ext amp Soundblaster E3 from Creative. I love loud muziks.. am a audiophile loud listener and sound producer. The sound.. its vibrations.. its eq etc. I'm so shocked and satisfied! The bass I would give a 9/10 and treb/mid 9/10

Not much to say but the pricing, design and sound are worth it. Comfortable too.. I would deny for those who have said bad for this. I'm a muzik producer and I know the differences of sound. And I'm a fan for Audio Technica.

Great headphone with affordable price
One of the best headphone I've ever tried and have until now.

It's sound great regardless of whatever the source I use.

Only one disadvantage for me is it doesn't support balanced connector because it use 3 pin 3.5mm female connector rather than 4 pin.

EQ Needed but Great Sound
I was concerned when I used them without an EQ because the highs were really loud and annoying and the lows weren't quite loud enough, but after 10 minutes, they sounded great. If you, for some reason, aren't able to use an equalizer with your headphones, I wouldn't suggest these, but I used the djay 2 app's equalizer for iphone and it actually worked very well. I had already played my music through this app and it worked perfectly with these headphones. It may be a simple EQ but that's all that I needed to make these headphones sound amazing.

In short, these headphone we comfortable but I returned them since they had a faint rattle in on of the drivers. I didn't own them long enough to get a full grasp of their sound quality, first impression was that they didn't have the neutral or wide sound spectrum I was looking for.

I just got them yesterday. So right now, I'll say maybe so!
I just got them yesterday. So these comments are without burn-in time. They are attractive looking and comes with a nice [black pleather--fake leather]carrying pouch. They are quite comfortable to wear for extended periods without sweating out your ears. The sound is very good. However mids could be a lot stronger. So a decent EQ app makes sound much more to my liking. Remarkably, with minor EQ adjustments, they sound good even with my old iPod classic. The only big disappointment for me is that I want to have a volume control on the inline remote.
