Brand new member of the ATH-ES7 club here!




Love them already after only a few hours of listening. Bought from Warehouse123, very fast shipping too. Bought these to upgrade from a pair of AKG k414p, not disappointed so far

Hey Squiresire. I noticed that you have the Predator. I just ordered the P-51 Mustang and would like to know how you like the headphone with the Predator. Is it alot different amped. I just ordered the ATH ES7 and can't wait.

I honestly cannot really answer this one, as I have yet to listen to the ES7 w/o the amp... But usually, with almost all my other pair of headphones, you're looking at a better soundstage (not a dramatic change, but slightly better), and way tighter frequencies from the bottom to the top...

Thought I would ask anyone if there was more to add to the initial post?

let me know

My es7s are still going strong, absolutely love them and would recommend them to all considering!

I spent a few hours reading through this awesome site chock full of great information b/c my wife just had ear surgery and can't listen to ear buds anymore and wanted CANS that go over the ears. I had narrowed it down to Equation R-21 or the ATH-ES7 based on the budget and she preferred the look of the ES7s so I ordered them this weekend. Now I think I effed up royally because I somehow missed that the ES7s aren't circum-aural. I just assumed because they were listed as "closed" that they were. Anyway, she only listened to them for 20 minutes and said it hurts her ears too much. She wanted a pair that goes OVER the ears. So my options are now to try and sell them (the place I ordered from has a 20% restocking fee so eff that) to someone that wants a new pair or try and do some sort of modification. But I'm not very confident in modifying, and who knows if that will fix her discomfort. I'm in NYC. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thank you.

Can anyone tell if this ES7 is fake from these pictures?



post #189 of 538
100% sure its a fake. Pouch and pads are a dead giveaway.

thanks for the help.

A real bag only has the logo on it right?
post #191 of 538
The genuine bag has no logo on it. The logo is on a small cloth tab attached to the side. Genuine pads are thicker with very few creases. The genuine adjustment rods inside the headband are thicker than in your picture. The strain relief on the wire entering the earpieces has no striations on a genuine pair.

Just thought I would post my es7's

Can anybody confirm that buy.com is a sound place to buy ES7s? I read something about a guy getting some from there that said they were 'made in China' as opposed to Japan. Just wondering.
post #194 of 538
i posted up a link for buy.com under 100 dollars w/ free shipping in another thread. maybe u saw it. i posted it up because buy.com is a reputable and legit site, i highly doubt they would sell fakes there.
post #195 of 538
I would trust buy.com. I think I remember reading that someone got a fake from buy.com, but even if that were true, buy.com probably fixed their mistake.

I think it's easier to spot fakes in pictures once you've owned a real pair for a while. To the guy who posted those pictures, I can also say that the design of the headband is wrong, the cups shouldn't be rounded at the edges, the sides of the cups should look like brushed metal, and the stress reliefs should be smooth and not perforated or whatever you call it.
