Okay, but what about the ES700? I guess it has less mid bass than the WS99, but that is not so important to me. Is the sub bass adequate for tech house tracks? I don't need some thumping bass, but the sub bass capability is important for that genre

Hmmm, My results only got the red and blue cabled ones for $99.00. Didn't search hard though. Nice deal if all were under $100 :)

 

Hopefully some people got a deal. As of now I only see 99.00 for the two and 129.00 for the silver.

Yeah, I just checked my orders on hold jant71, I caught the discount, but prices are up for both the silver cable and regular flat cables ones now. Same was true for the headphones (the sliver cable one was like $115 then jumped to $179. I didn't buy the headphone though).

Actually yes the ES700s will be a nice upgrade for you. The bass is excellent the mids are where these are much better over the HA-S500. The highs are done very well also. Good call. I would try these. Look into getting a pair of WS55 pads when ordering these however.

The M100 was uncomfortable, too and wasn't as engaging as the WS99 to me. Which one should i try next? I'd go with the X1, but i prefer a portable option (IEM or on-ear). 

 

ATH  WS33X!:

Bass is slighly on the loose side but its not all-over-the-place loose but a controlled loose. Extends very deep as well. Its like middle ground between ws99 and AD900x. No burn in was needed I loved it from the start. Guess what's the best part. Its only 50bucks:)

This might be what happened to you, jant71:

 

Onkyo IE-FC300  (regular cables various colors)

 

Onkyo IE-HF300 (copper silver-plated cable)

@wayne Yeah i read that, seems a bit too good to be true though :D I'm waiting for at least one additional opinion on them.. 

post #12368 of 32865

Double check on that Wayne. Maybe a case of two better headphones not being driven right? Though i have heard about the 33X being oddly bright and not the usually lower model less treble/more bass thing. Just to be safe:)

 

Gotta love the red 33X though. Would have been perfect with a black plug and black pads.

Exactly. The 33X seems more balanced and not that bassy so you might just think it is wimpy :)

 

I find it intriguing though.tongue.gif

I definitely find them intriguing based on what Jung Woo Cho said:

Portable headphones that sound like "middle ground between ws99 and ad900x" and that cost only $50? Yup, color me intrigued!

How do the X1s compare with the HE-400s
