This baby is indeed rocksss !!
Now it becomes my most favourite portable headphone for under $300, for my taste I think I even dare to compare it directly to their big brother ESW9 and easily surpass the ES88.
The main point from this headphone for me is about the midrange, it's forward, sweet, and full bodied without sounds muddy. The treble is smoother than ES7 but still has nice sparkle. Overall I think this ES700 has balance sound with forward midrange.
Compare to ES10, definitely ES10 has bigger and more spacious sounding and also bassier. But if we talk about midrange only, I think ES700 is more enjoyable, especially for female voice :)
