Need Your Help Please! Ultrasone Pro900 vs. ATH-ES10 for me? - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Thread Starter 

I haven't tried the Pro900 (yet) but based on what the other guys have said here, I am anxious to try them based on how much I already love my ES10s.  I doubt that you would regret the purchase and there should be many who will want to buy them from you if you decide that they are not for you.

 

Out of curiosity, what is the pricing of the ES10 in Japan?  And is it any different than those sold in North America?

 

Good luck and be sure to let us know what you think since you are a much more qualified evaluator than I.  My listening and commentary skills with respect to HPs is similar to shamrock's post #6 above.

you can find the prices on ES-10 by going to the site kakaku.com...right now it's about 29,627 yen.  I'm thinking about getting them too.

 

Users have given it 4.11/5 stars based on reviews...thought some of the reviews on read on that site are very skewed, but overall it seems like good reviews.

Just a quick update.  I still have both of them and I would have the give the nod to the Pro900 for their completeness on the sound side.  It does a better job of separating the sounds than the ES10.  But I would have to give the nod to the ES10 when it comes to portability.  AT did a great job with its headband and the clicking adjustment mechanism.  Easy to set without having to look at it because the clicking is quite clear.

 

I just can't put the Pro900 down and I haven't even done the Kees mod to them yet.  I'm not sure if I am going to because they are so good as they are.  Plus, I'm a bit of a sound freak because I have a pretty high threshold for both sibilance and strong punchy bass.  I'm listening mostly to electronica/dance and some live singing with orchestra background.  The sound stage is quite amazing for a closed HP.

Did you ever end up getting the ES10?  If so, what are your thoughts?

I recently got a headstage arrow 2g to use portably with my es10. I must say the es10 responds very well to the arrow's bass boosting.

ES10 + bass-boost on setting 2 + dubstep/dnb =

I just ordered the ES-10 yesterday, so once I get it, I'll be posting up my impressions and review.  So, looking forward to these portables.

Shaggy-FOO, how are you doing with the ES-10 HPs?  How long have you had them now and are they keepers?  I see that you are interested in the Pro 900 too.  I love mine and I can't imagine a better set of HPs for trance/electronic.

 

Shamrock and zenpunk, it was enjoyable to read your comments again and I can't believe how spot on your comments are.  Now that I have had these and the Pro 900 for an extended time now, I can clearly see/hear what you guys have described.

 

Shamrock, I will have to admit that I am feeling a little upgraditus, although it's a 'bit' of a stretch but from the little that I have read so far, I like what I am reading about the Edition 8.  Your set for sale looks particularly interesting to me but I think I will need to wait a little since I just made a career change and I am making a lot less than I used to.  Would you mind sharing your thoughts on a comparison of these three headphones?  Thanks!

How are these as far as sound leakage? I tend to listen to music at pretty loud levels and when I'm at work I've only been able to get away with wearing IEM's due to not wanting to leak sound and bother my office mate. Would love to find some full sized headphones that do not leak sound and have a sound signature like the Pro 900's.
