The ES700, AT's entry to the closed portable segment

Posted

Pros: Excellent bass response, lush mids and tamed highs; remarkable build quality; made in Japan

Cons: Uncomfortable after an hour of use; funky headband; availability

Intro   While looking into a new closed portable, I came across a discovery thread created by Dsnuts.

Pros: beautiful, price, and uh oh the mids... most beautiful mids i've ever heard

Cons: Pads, availability

I purchased these upon recommendation of a friend who has never led me wrong. And he hasn't with the ES700s.   These imports make me wonder what else is going on across the Pacific! The sound is very accurate, yet fun enough to plug into an iPod. Bass is very controlled and deep, surprising amount of sub bass for this price level.
