ATH-ESW9 Sovereign Wood Headphones


The ATH-ESW9 Sovereign Wood Headphones (what a mouthful) from Audio Technica ditches fine grade plastic in favor of Japanese Hokkaido cherry tree wood, featuring 42mm neodymium magnet drivers encased in fiberglass, and comes complete with a gold plated mini plug as well as a sensitivity level of 103dB. As any audiophile will tell you, anything with sound that comes from wood will definitely be richer and warmer, and the ATH-ESW9 Sovereign Wood Headphones does a pretty bang up job while looking good. They're pretty expensive though (as anything involving chopping down trees would), retailing for $369 a pop when October 19th rolls around.
