Audio technica es10 comfort ?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hi .I have got couple of days ago ath es10.I was looking for some nice portable headphones with very good bass.

But first i bought bowers and wilkins p5.I never had chance to try them before what was a big mistake.

Lots of reviews were saying they have nice neutral bass.O god,they have no bass to me.They were just like a bad dream for

me specially when i listen lots of trance,goa,chill out ,drum and bass...Just soooo boring ...So i sold them..

 

Anyway I wanna ask question about es10 users.Are you think they are comfortable enough?

I find them comfy,but not as i expecting.They seem little sore my ears after while..Is it gonna change after use(stretch)???

And another important notice, i think they can get warm and red my ears after while.Is it normal for supra aural headphones.Dont

have experience with another brands.Could be reason that there is pleather pads and not leather.Or this not really matter.?

About sound i think they are amazing,they blow P5 away in every way.The BASS is terrific,so deep ,strong and funny.

Probably best portable headphones for electronica.For BASSHEADS recommend.


sorry for english.. :)

No issues with comfort here. Maybe stretch them out about by putting them over an object or extend the headband by one more notch each side?

I try.You having so many headphones as i can see.How do you compare ES10 to other phones you have?

In terms of sound and comfort?For example specially with hd25 ,M50 or ultrasones?

Do you like them?

I find them much more comfortable then my Senns HD-25.

 

I actually like the sound of the HD-25's a tiny bit more, but because of the comfort difference, I end up using ES-10 much more on the go.

 

They're not as comfortable as many circumaural headphones, and they can get a little bit hot, but overall the do relatively fine for portables.

What kind of music you listen to,when u like a tiny bit more HD-25 sound?I think ES10 work perfect for electro, but i never heard

HD-25 is more analytical, detailed, tranparent and faster. ES-10 though has more 'fun' sound, more bass and is smoother. I like HD-25's speed more for rock and especially metal, but also for other things. ES-10 though is more relaxing to me, less upfront but with a great 'body' in the sound. As for sound, I could be perfectly happy with both of them on the go, but if I had to make a choice...

For electro, I'd probably prefer ES-10's sound, but I don't listen to that.

 

HD-25 get my ears hot and tickling very fast and comfort of ES-10 is much much better for me, which is the reason I have ES-10. If comfort weren't an issue with HD-25, I'd use only the Senns.

Nice compare.Thanks.

Anyway how do you compare in sound and comfort quality ES10 to other headphones you have?Specially Z1000?

I payd for es10 400 dollars.Do you think they worth that money?Im not a person with big experience with phones.So that is way i ask.

Im pretty curious.:)

Are ES10 phones you will definitely keep?:)

The ES10s are my favourite portable in terms of looks and SQ. I prefer them to my HD25 and M50 and Denon D1100 which I also consider to be portable in the conventional sense. (Some people here would have no issue walking around outside with the LCD-2 or HD800 on their headtongue.gif)

 

I like the ES10 for it's bass quantity, bass punch and overall fun signature which works well for the electronic genres I listen to. I do also like the HD25, but while the bass is tight and punchy, it lacks quantity a bit for my taste and since I don't have an Adidas or customized version it doesn't look as nice as the ES10. I do use it over the ES10 sometimes though on cold winter days. The D1100 would probably get more use outside if it was a bit more low profile. The Edition 8 is also portable, but I doubt I would ever wear them outside.

Do you think ES10 are more comfy than denon 1100?What about bass to compare with M50 and D1100?

 

Hmm so HD25 are hotter than ES10?I think ES10 can get my ears quite warm after while.But i stuffed them with some cotton foam and 

comfort level went up little bit.Maybe i will take cotton of when they stretch later.(less pressure).

Well edition 8 is another league i think... :)And portable as portable :)

The Denon D1100 is more comfortable than both the HD25 and ES10 due to it being circum-aural. The bass on the D1100 is greater in quantity than the M50,ES10 and HD25, but seems to be mostly mid-bass and lacks extension. Some might say it is a bit over-powering, but it is definitely worthy of a basshead. However, I just cannot get over the goofy looking headband. They should have left it the same as the D1001.

 

M50 bass is more like the HD25 than ES10 or D1100. Slightly bumped up, but not enough for a basshead like me.

 

The HD25 do get warmer I think and make good winter ear-muffs, but also the robust design makes them good for harsher weather conditions where my precious ES10 might get damaged or wet!

 

I've never found clamp/comfort an issue due to my small head I think. This also has the downside on some cans of making the fit/seal not tight enough which means reduced bass response and isolation in some cases.

I compared them with the HD-25:)

There's no other portable can which I have that can compete. But Z1000's are being shipped so I don't have them yet.

 

For me, they're worth the money yes, because I use them a lot.

If I keep the ES10's definitely, I can say after I experienced Z1000's and DT1350, then I've had every worthwhile portable for me. I do have to say I'm very happy with them.

 

Edition 8's, I don't see as portables. Offcourse they beat every other portable out there, but they also beat every other full size closed can. And I'm not going on the go with 2000 usd headphones, it's just too much.

I had them twice. No, wasn't happy with the sound. If they were my first serious cans, I would undoubtly enjoy they, but simply put, I think they're 3 times as expensive as their sound is worth, compared to other portable headphones.

At the other hand, they are absolutely beautifully made; the look great, they're very comfortable also.

I really wanted to like them, but I just couldn't, too muddy, bloated, undetailed and undynamical for that price.
 

But that's my opinion on and experience with B&W's first headphones. There are others who do like them; tastes and opinions vary, I can only give mine.

I had them ones only.I was like you i just could not find any love to them.For electronica probably worst choice.No energy,no bass ,no speed.

On other side, yes they were very comfy and beautiful.I wish ES10 looks like them,Dont saying they not nice,but wearing P5 was like

driving Aston Martin.:_)Expect enjoy:)

I have one more question.Is HD580 good for electronica,were need good bass?

Thinking about open back circum aural phones.
