Audio-Technica is teasing with a bit of information on three new sets of audiophile grade headphones that it will be unveiling for the first time next month at CES in Las Vegas. If you are an audiophile, you know the Audio-Technica name most likely and the new headphones have some impressive features.

The high-end offering is the over-the-ear ATH-W1000x "Grandioso. This is the tenth generation of the W series headphones that are as high-end. The W1000x headphones feature an American black cherry wood housing and use 53mm drivers and rare earth magnets. The cable uses oxygen free wire for better sound and the frequency response is an impressive 5Hz-42,000Hz.

The headphones promise smooth tonal balance and deep bass, they should be perfect for the high-end audiophile with means. The headphones will sell for $699.95. They use the self-adjusting Wing support housing and a golf plated plug for connecting to stereo gear.

The next new set of headphones is the ATH-AD900 that are open back headphones. They use a light aluminum honeycomb casing with the same self-adjusting housing as the other high-end headphones. They have 53mm drivers and a frequency response of 5Hz-35,000 Hz. The cable is ten feet long and they come with 0.25" and 3.5mm adapters. They will sell for $299.99 when they launch.

The final new headphones are the ATH-A900 closed back. They are much like the open back model I just mentioned and have aluminum ear cups with a blue finish. They will sell for $249.99 and all of the new headphones will hit stores in February 2011.
