I've been researching a lot for my eventual purchase of portable headphones and was wondering if people can give me impressions of the ath es-10. I'm using IEM right now, MTPC & UE TF10) but my ears get fatigued a bit after extended listening (especially with the sparkly treble of the triple.fi) hence my decision to get a nice pair of portable headphones.
How do these compare to the ATH-M50 or the Phiaton MS-400? I have the m50 & like how they sound except I feel the bass is a bit slow and veils the mids and vocals along with a slightly recessed high. I've listened to the esw-9 and I thought they were very mellow and laid back, but lacked the sparkle and clarity in the trebles. I guess i'm looking for a slightly more analytical esw-9 but still fun to listen to.
Any input would be appreciated. How does it compare to the Beyer T50-P?
