ok ty, may I ask you what you are looking at when compare various headphones?

 

btw from http://www.techradar.com/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/headphones/audio-technica-ath-es10-710246/review

 

es10 review

 

A couple of large-scale orchestral recordings proved that it's got nothing against classical music as such and its imaging is unusually good. These discs have plenty of detail which came through well and it was possible to hear some slight tonal balance anomalies, but nothing serious.

You have a ways to go.........................

You will need an amp. Possibly a DAC, too.

For orchestral on a budget, I'd look for a used AKG K-501 or Sennheiser HD-600.

What's your budget?

Dac / CDplayer (better) + Amp + HD800   ----> always the best combo for orchestral music rolleyes.gif
