Our Verdict:
A good spec and critically acclaimed 350g Head-band style pair of headphones. This pair of headphones is really quiet and good-looking but it has [an awful] display.

Why Has it Scored 75?

It has very good expert reviews and superb user reviews with an average overall rating of 89%.
This pair of headphones is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer headphones with better features are available. However it has good reviews so it may still be worth considering. View the latest headphones 2018.
This Audio-Technica pair of headphones has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Bigger than average speaker size
Longer than average cable length
Does not support Bluetooth
Heavier than average

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each pair of headphones by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.
