Why Has it Scored 77?

several reviews mentioned that it has very good expert reviews and brilliant user reviews with an average overall rating of 89%. Looking across the entire Audio-Technica headphones range, the average reviews for all Audio-Technica headphones are also excellent.
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.
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.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the pair of headphones is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec headphones come to market, the older headphones will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
