Why Has it Scored 76?

It has great expert reviews and exceptional user reviews with an average overall rating of 90%, based on 19 reviews. This pair of headphones has received a "Recommended" award from Onheadphones.com. Looking across the entire Sony headphones range, the average reviews for all Sony headphones are also excellent.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer headphones with better features are available. However this Audio-Technica pair of headphones has good reviews so it may still be worth considering. View the latest earphones 2018.
The ATH-W1000 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

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.
