ESMOOTH - Gorgeous headphones... - Page 2

post #16 of 135

Looking forward to your thoughts! Am very curious about the acoustic properties of different kinds of wood, and esmooth seems to have some really funky off the beaten path choices for wood!

But crappy drivers in exotic wood enclosures = frown.gif

a perfect cheap foster phone candidate?

Received them Friday - pretty quick, no issues with customs - kind of them.

 

They LOOK nice, been burning them in, they didn't sound very good during the first quick listening session.

 

Will let you know...

Burn really docent DRASTICLY change the sound, burning in the HD25's really has only brough the mids up a pinch but then again they only have about 15-20 hours on them.

Anyone know where to buy these here in the States?  They look like great fosterphones.

Since I really enjoy the disappearing SFI tweeters in donerphones, I would love a pair of the first ones posted (the 610?) as a portable pair.

Wood on headphones always look so classy!

I've been interested in making my own IEMs for a while and those cases look kinda tempting to shove my own drivers in cool.gif

Hey could you please take some photos of them? I would like to see what they exactly look like in real life rather than in those pretty & heavily PSed official shots.

Will post photos when I get time (travelling for a few days) - but I must say - they do look that good in real life. The wood is so perfect that I was sure that it was plastic, but I opened them up, and it's clear that the wood is real, just well made and highly polished. The plugs on the cords even have wooden enclosures. I have been modifying the bigger ones a little to see if I can get decent sound, and they are a bit clearer, just not a lot of lower bass.

I'm very interested in this. Could someone please post a review on how they sound?
