Solid sound for electronic/hiphop

Posted

Pros: Tight base, sweet mids, good at faking tonal balance

Cons: Not the most extended highs or detailed lows, fragile cable

I'm an Audio Technica fanboy, and I love their sound. Compared to the AD2000 headphone with a Gilmore Lite and Bel Canto DAC3, I actually didn't miss it when I only had my ES7. Just a nice headphone to have for fun listening. I used the 'phat pad' mod for both. The ES7 and the AD2000 share a more similar sound signature than the other ATH cans. Some of AudioTechnica's headphones can be be tedious, the W5000, M50, and AD2000 come to mind. Technically proficient with detailed, balanced frequency response and PRaT but not as much about 'fun'. Because of the trademark Audio-Technica sweet mids they are all all are indeed 'musical' to a certain degree. These are two extremes that the...

Fantastic traveling headphone if you got a small head

Posted

Pros: Sound, Style, Modable, Value, Sleek

Cons: Comfort, Rubber headband

I got a good deal on these and took the chance since I owned the AD-700 and tested the M-50 once.  Audio Technica knows what sound is and they do a fantastic job for their low price headphones.  After reading that these things have nice bass and people prefer them over the AD-700, I had to give them a try.  I wasn't impressed at first, but people said with burn-in, they become better.  So I burned them in a little and they were definitely correct in that aspect.  The bass started to come out as well as the clarity in the other frequencies.  The comfort wasn't bad at first, but once I had them on my head for several hours my ears were in throbbing pain after...

Audio Technica ES7

Posted

Pros: look good, good sound quality amp driven or not

Cons: wire looks weak

I purchased these primarily for travelling for £134 GBP and was looking something a bit cool, so after reviewing it hear felt I could take a gamble and buy these online without trying them first, my home cans are Senn's 598 and these are not for public use, though I have tried and No No No...lol   on opening the packing I was pleasently surprised that the phones small and as I have small ears fitted me nice, checked the mirror and the image was positive as having a bald head can make can look enormous but these looked good.   Plugged it into my blackberry 9780, played a range of music from Reggae (lovers Rock), Jazz Hip Hop, Soulful house, Latin and thought they...

entertaining on ear phones

Posted

Pros: Great sound, good detail, fun engaging listen

Cons: uncomfortable

the ES7 were my first 'expensive' headphone. I'd never spent more than $50 previously. Buying these was the start of my headphone passion. I'd always been a hi-fi stereo person, as i need to feel bass, i don't like it boomy or over whelming but i need to feel it. I thought i could never get a similar sensation from headphones so i never bothered buying mor than cheap upgrades over the awful sound from stock earphones.   The ES7's were a revelation to my ears.  brilliant engaging sound with deep bass and wonderful clarity (i began to hear things my $50 cheapo phones never even hinted at. I was amazed at the tight bass the detailed mids and eye blinking highs. music sounded...
