Audio-Technica ATH-CP700 Conclusion

By

Aside from the funky cable and throwaway travel pouch, the Audio-Technica ATH-CP700 do exactly what they promise. They are the perfect headphone for those that exercise outside and want to stay safe with the best audio possible. It's hard to judge the Audio-Technica ATH-CP700 compared to other headphones in the sonic department because they've hamstringed themselves by allowing in outside noise to keep you safe when on the roads. According to my runner friend, they really work in that regard. If you've been afraid of using headphones when exercising outside, the Audio-Technica ATH-CP700 may be just what you've been waiting for. If you are looking for sonic excellence from an in-ear monitor, Audio-Technica has lots of other headphones for you.
