  • But I felt the strongest frisson from listening to "Finale," from producer-engineer Cookie Marenco's (SACD/CD, Blue Coast BCRCD 1012). Following Glen Moore's bowed solo on his rich and gritty double bass, there's a long pause that makes many think the show is over—though not those who can hear the continuing soft ambience. Hang in for a bit and be startled by a brief, nonsensical monologue that seems whispered almost in your ear. This first fascinated me when I listened to it in multichannel. That a mere pair of Aerial 7Ts could pull this off was a testament to their clarity and neutrality.

    Unless a flashy style is your main objective as a DJ, the Aerial7 Tank Headphones aren't really going to cut it. Audio quality is not up to snuff, with the main issue being the loose and loopy low-end flailing around the sound space. The result is music that sounds as if it's coming from underwater, with highs that mesh together and mids that fall flat. That said, listening is not intolerable, since there is no background hiss or obvious distortion. And one plus is that audio sounds pretty open for headphones. Still, the muffled quality extends to all music, so no genre sounds good. These are not a good choice for people with a keen ear.

    I've already noted that the 7T's low frequencies weren't as powerful as that of larger, more expensive speakers such as the Sony SS-AR1 or my B&W 800 Diamonds. On the other hand, the Aerial's treble performance fell somewhere between those two references: more incisive than the Sony, a bit softer than the B&W. The 7T shared, to a lesser extent, the Sony's reticence in the upper midrange, just above the range of the human voice. In my room, the 7Ts produced a somewhat wider soundstage than the Sonys, but I've heard the SS-AR1s do magical spatial things in larger rooms. That the differences were small means that the Aerial 7T deserves to be considered in the rarified company of speakers costing nearly three times as much.
