No kidding. I've always thought the Westone IEMs were a bit lackluster and boring sounding, but they friggen nailed it for me with the ES5. I like things a bit soft on top, and these things suite me to a T!!!

They are AMAZING! A bit bright and bass heavy for my tonal tastes, but out-of-this-world in terms of coherence and imaging.
I could live without the JH13 having the ES5, but not the other way around. Fortunately I have both. :)
And they pack pack away nicely in the JH tiny Otterbox, which is now stuffed and ready to go for tunes on the way to the Munich High End Show tomorrow.
Got the V-Moda Metalo case for my Galaxy SIII and the Vamp Verza for DAC/amp duties on the way as well.
Woot!!! I'm a styling traveler now!
