One of my favorite tunes to listen to on these headphones. The IM70 have a modern design, but also evoke memories of 1980s electronics for some reason. I personally find it rather appealing in its aesthetics. The dual symphonic drivers are housed in a hard hybrid plastic that looks quite sturdy and feels hard as a rock. The fire engine/Ferrari red color is very slick and stylish. The detachable cable starts with a thick 2-pin connector attached to a flexible memory wire.

Fortunately, Google has made significant advancement on this front, and the Nest Audio sounds much better than the often muddy and unpleasant-sounding Google Home. Two Nest Audio speakers can be paired in a stereo configuration. It competes with the likes of the GR07, a head-fi classic. It can handle anything you throw at it from Rock to EDM to Jazz, and even serviceably handle Classical. Its sweet mids, impactful bass, and 3D soundstage make it a great option for film and video games as well.

While I’ve heard quite a few complaints over the memory wire, it hasn’t been a problem for me once I got it initially set into a comfortable position. The cable comes with an adjustable chin slider and terminates in a well relieved and sturdy 90° L plug. Overall, the cable isn’t anything to write home about, and a bit on the bulky side, but seems very well made and strong. I’ve always heard great things about the Audio Technica brand, and had often seen fans of the brand lauding their products. When I had a chance to get my hands on their IM series in a trade with a fellow Head-fier, I jumped at it and got the IM50. I was impressed with the way it presented vocals and how fun it was to listen to, so I wanted to see if I could find the same type of signature with a more refined sound.

When the drums come in, each drum moves from once channel to the other and Mark Knopfler’s finger plucks pop and crackle into your left ear. The snare drum can sound overbearing in a few places with certain headphones.
Its limits are where you’d expect them to be from something of this size, and the Home Max is still the better choice to soundtrack a dance party or fill a larger-than-average room. The Nest Audio has a 75mm (three-inch) woofer and a 19mm (0.75-inch) tweeter, which are significantly more than the lone 50mm (two-inch) driver on the original Home. These combine to provide a much fuller, clearer sound that is more pleasant to listen to at higher volumes. Interestingly, the original Home is able to get about as loud as the Nest Audio, but the Nest Audio sounds much better at any volume. Design is important, but when it comes to a speaker, sound quality matters more.
As with other Nest speakers, there’s a physical switch on the back of the Nest Audio to mute the microphones and prevent your voice from being picked up by the Google Assistant. Every smart device now requires you to agree to a series of terms and conditions before you can use it — contracts that no one actually reads. It’s impossible for us to read and analyze every single one of these agreements. But we started counting exactly how many times you have to hit “agree” to use devices when we review them since these are agreements most people don’t read and definitely can’t negotiate. Overall, there’s very little to complain about with the Nest Audio’s sound quality, and most people will be very happy with it for everything from casual background music to more dedicated listening.
As if to prove it doesn’t have a dual symphonic driver for nothing, the IM70 can also hold its own in symphonic music. Though not the widest stage, the depth and 3D presentation do a very nice job recreating the size of the hall and the dynamics of the instruments. This song starts with a synth echoing throughout the soundstage and Sting’s voice trailing off into the depths.
