Limited, wooden portable ATH-ESW10JPN arrives! (with pics) - Page 2

post #16 of 1672
The ESW10 looks really awesome!
However the price is a little too high for me
post #17 of 1672
oh god, they look great. I can hardly wait until mine arrive. The darker wood makes it look much more subtle and sexier than the ESW9. So glad to hear that they do the same thing but better with regards to sound, as I really like my ESW9. I might get mine recabled by Apuresound after I have had them a little while.

Thanks for the photos. Would you put somemore up, along side pair of ESW9 ?

Wonder how they would compare to an APS recabled ESW9

The D5k goes for about $600, though, if I'm not mistaken.
D7000's, right here.

EXTREMELY reputable company; I've been ordering from them for years.

Obviously none in stock, atm, but they are never to long sold out of anything.

At a full $400 cheaper than any retailer that has them in stock, I'm both excited and skeptical. Headroom and Audiocubes has them at full retail, which is $995.

I'll hold my comments, however, because if it's true that's pretty awesome.

587$?
I think that price is for the D5000?

Quite a few other places HAD them in stock for $600-$700. Obviously, sold out now, but I could have bought 10, if I really wanted to. But I am not one to shell out that kind of money for a pair of headphones without any reviews; literally.

To Sasaki: my apologies for getting OT.

Have been looking for a "travel" set of cans. These fit the bill! My order is in at AudioCubes.

Thanks for the pics and the review.

Strange. All of them are out-of-stock.
I bet the price would pump up when they have in stock.

Yeah, all the places I found, that had them under a grand were sold out in about a week.

There was an eBay seller that had 5 of them for $699, shipped. I've seen them go as low as $560ish, but I didn't feel comfortable ordering from them. I've used beachaudio for years, like I mentioned.

they do look great.

They do look great, and after seeing how stunning these are in actual photos, I am more inclined to sacrafice a small amount of sound for these GORGEOUS beaut's.

Not to mention they are likely far more comfortable than the ED9's, and look better to boot.

they look comfortable.

edition 9 gets somewhat uncomfortable after some time.

My ESW9 was comfortable enough to wear them on my daily way to work. I couldnt stand them more than 1hour on my head at home however.


Sasaki: Now that the ESW10 is out, how are the chances we will see an even better limited portable headphone.. Maybe using leather and being limited to 500 pieces.. that would remind me of something we all know

I sold my ESW9 some months after i got it because it was very obvious to me that audio technica would quickly improve on it and release something better.

The portable market is big especially in japan and if these sell out quickly (im sure they will), i'm also pretty sure we'll see another even better variation. It went the same way with the W1000 (w2002, then l3000).


PS: Beautiful pictures! Maybe if you have the time could you please upload some in higher res for wallpaper use? 1920x1200 would be great for example
