Audio Technica ATH- ES 10 Impressions Thread - Page 28

post #406 of 852

It took an incredibly long time for the driver to settle down, I absolutely enjoy using mine.(300+ hours)

Infact I use these whenever I listen to cello solo, nothing I own can bring the same sound for cello like the ES10.

I think the people ordered their ES10 from ebay but they are not cheap. I still do not know the improvement they bring beside the fitting comfort.

While I agree that the ES10 benefits from good sources (clean, low distortion, low output impedance, etc...), I don't think they particularly need a good source to shine.

 

Changing the stock ear pads gives much more of an improvement.

 

That said, I haven't seen ESW11 ear pads anywhere but eBay. But you can order the ESW9 ear pads directly from Audio Technica, and it fits just fine.

Yeah, but it's just a link to eBay. Click on any one of them and you'll see.

Are these earpads from eBay fake or something? I was planning on ordering a set of W1000X pads from the same seller.

post #411 of 852

Oh no... but I think you can get them cheaper directly from Audio Technica. At least I know for sure $60 for a pair of ESW9 is too much.

When you say directly from AT, do you mean AT Japan or AT USA?

post #413 of 852
I meant AT USA. I don't know AT Japan pricing, but I'd suspect that they're even cheaper than AT USA.

I got it from AT SEA (Their office is in Singapore where I live) :D

Damage was SGD78...

post #415 of 852

If you read earlier, esw11 earpads were unavailable from at usa.  They actually were rude about it last time i called, about a month ago.  I had called last year when they were released but they said to call back in a few months.  I did that and got just a hostile reply......sorry, I just wondering.........blink.gif

post #416 of 852

Well, I emailed them a while back to inquire a backup pair of ear pads.

 

And the response was much the same. They don't have ESW11LTD parts.

post #417 of 852

So I got my ES10's! I certainly see what everyone is complaining about with the pads... I might order some off eBay ASAP...

post #418 of 852

I'm finding the clamping force quite tight. Did anyone else get this?

I did, too. Stretched them over a folded pillow for a day. Much better now for my gigantic head.

Yeah, it levels out after a while of ownership.

 

And the stock pads cause the ES10 to sound dark and veiled. I know ESW9 pads cause the sound to open up, so maybe the ESW11LTD pads will have the same effect.
