From its wooden ear cups to the gold-plated audio jack, Audio-Technica designed and built the ATH-W1000X to stand out even among premium headphones. The American black cherry wood used in the headphones' construction helps it deliver an authentic natural sound. Other features that contribute to the sound of these audiophile headphones include a closed-back design and the large-aperture 53 mm drivers that pump audio signals through magnetic circuits. Unlike regular headsets, these Audio-Technica headphones feature a 6.3 mm wooden stereo plug at the end of a highly conductive PCOCC cable wrapped in an elastomer sheath.
