Audio Technica ATH- ES 10 Impressions Thread - Page 3

post #31 of 884

I've always been interested in these. Can anyone compare them to D5000s or my HJE900 IEM, in regards to tonality and overall timbre quality?

post #32 of 884

I received my ES10s a couple weeks ago, and I love them! They are very detailed, reasonably comfortable, have a decent sound stage, and sound great with all music, though better with some music than others. I especially love the crunchy sounding percussion. The treble seemed really excessive at first, but improved to large but reasonable levels after about 20 hours burn-in. I'm not sure how much of that was psychoacoustical versus actual burn-in. The only substantial downside to the sound is that the mids sometimes sound a bit recessed -- vocals are sometimes drowned out by instruments. These headphones especially sound great with Dark Side of the Moon. And they're visually stunning to boot.

Anyone know where I can find these cans in the U.S. hopefully under 300$, at least under 400$.

I think these headphones are underrated sadly...

post #35 of 884

I am looking too.  Hard to find.....

You are searching amongst sellers like joynetcafe on fleaBay or pricejapan.com, right?  They are Japan-exclusive headphones so mainly the exporters carry them for us people overseas.

They appear to go for ~$350 on Amazon Japan, so $400 shipped for us is not too bad a price, although I think I've seen it for as low as ~$380.

So is buying thru Amazon marketplace....going to eliminate bootlegs/knockoffs?  It is a little cheaper than pricejapan.  They are still around $400. but i would hate to get a copy.  I know the esw9 had alot of problems with that.  I got mine originally from pricejapan right at release so there weren't any yet.

 

Edit-Checked Joynet too, that looks pretty legit.  

 

Anyone tried these?

If it ships from Japan, then it's probably legit.  I doubt that there are counterfeits for such an expensive headphone.  If it sold like Beats or ESW9 do, then there would be.

cool, prob just get them thru Amazon marketplace, there are a few there.  Thanks.  Hope i like 'em, sight unheard.  I have esw9's that i love and Ed8 LE, these would fill in the middle i hope.  Kinda tweek sometimes going portable with $2000. headphones but sometimes the esw9's just aren't quite enough either.. my wife just looks and says "spoiled brat!"

lol what? Did you actually just spend your time photoshopping that picture? Nicely done though darthsmile.gif

post #43 of 884

Mine are so scratched lol.

post #44 of 884

Well I ordered on Sunday eve-Monday morning Japan time.  Thinking about some kind of screen protector or something to put on the cups, in the end though scratches probably just come with the territory.  Either way this phone seemed like it would suit my taste better than the other two options i had in mind.
