amazon Audio Technica ATH-LS200iS reviews
The ATH LS200 is completely redone compared to the ATH IM02. Although the angle is more, but the wear on the LS200 feels much more comfortable, because they are compact and fit the ear. The headphone housing is transparent to see the structure and components inside. The inside of the LS200 printed the headset with the left-right (L-R) symbol. The headphone tube is made of metal coated with plastic to increase the sound quality.
LS200 is designed with removable strings, using the standard name A2DC. Due to the unique characteristics of a Japanese audio company, ATH does not use common headphone connector standards such as MMCX or 2-pin.
On the body of the rope is a micrphone support conversation with the transfer button. The 3.5mm audio jack structure is nothing special, also made of plastic and folded with L-shaped corner and a little reinforced to prevent breakage.

Audio Technica ATH LS200 sound has many similarities with IM02, but not so that this is not an upgrade. The sound of the LS200 is generally still sweet, slow and warm, but the sound field is clear as well as the detail is much better. If the CKR line is for Pop, then the LS focuses on slower, vocal, jazz with a more subdued bass.
Thus, the Balance armature, the LS200 bass can not be compared to the Dynamic, even Dual Dynamic of the CKR. Bass compared to the general level is quite good, not much. But with a pair of dual headphones, the LS200 can be called enough. The sub bass is not a lot, but it still tries to get this to a certain depth. Jazz songs sometimes pop up a bit of sub bass in the background so the tracks are also less fragmented and tedious. One of the good points of sub bass and bass is the regularity, lyrical, smooth and bass are not beaten into lumps. The bass in Gravity from Alison Krauss is very smooth, less punchy but also so comfortable listening. The bass of the LS200 is not that small, but it also does not fit the genre of music depends much on this. The LS200’s bass mixes with slower and lyrical music, like more jazz because the bass is sweet and not violent.
The highlight of this headset is the mid section. This is a mid section of Audio Technica, sweet and full. The low mid section is not really firm, as husky as the display of the Dynamic speaker membrane but not too submersible. The male vocalist is still a bit young, but not too much. Trying out the voice of famous male singer Allan Taylor, the LS200 expresses its character with its colorful, lively mid-section and very flexible. But the female voice is the strength of the LS200. In a small offline session, I gave a Japanese fan to listen to the LS200, he was using the Sony MDR 1A and complimented on the middle part of the LS200. The middle part of Japan is ATH always has a strange substance, bright but not glare, many slightly but not thin, color but not to the level called distortion. This mid-range who listen to lyrical music, especially the Japanese voice will be difficult to get out.
The treble of the headphone is not less than the edge, quite a bit IM02. ATH do treble well, the LS line is their light music, so this part is also cared better. The LS200’s treble is crispy, does not dissolve too fast but does not have the thickness, uncertainity and brightness that is smooth and comfortable. This mid-range, as well as high mid, is extremely well controlled, so plug in bright music sources without being sibalised. This treble also contributes to the wide field of the LS200. The LS200 does not sound too long, but sound can come out of the ear easily. Everything is set down very naturally, without the pressure.
