The NEW ATH-ES700.. - Page 2

post #16 of 1038

Sweet !

 

I was waiting for an improved version of the ES7s after their cable was accidentally ripped by my wife. Didn't want to buy new ES7s because of comfort and weak cable...

 

Those baby seems to have a comfortable headband, juste hop the cable is more sturdy... pics seems to show the same cable as ES7 :-/

A new cable from Audio-Technica is less than $10 and takes about 15 minutes to replace.  Fix them and sell them and get  some 700s!

I think this link should go in the OP, its the cheapest rate they can be bought.

dosley01 : no way to repair them. I tried but the very very thin wire that connects the speaker to the board where the cable is soldered is severed. This is impossible to repaire.

 

The ES700 are also available on AudioCubes for $199.99 : http://www.audiocubes.com/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=3213

Ya but I bought mine from Amazon Japan for $140. The savings was so great I also added a CKN50 in there with the order and it still came up to be around $186..$38 added for shipping and EMS shipping.. Tenso is the only way to go for stuff from Japan imo. I saved over $100 on my AD900X as well. You guys really need to try Tenso forwarding service. Just set it up once and your good to go with anything you want from Japan. And at the best price possible. That alone is worth making a Tenso account.

 

By the way the MSRP is supposed to be $200.

Since you guys seem so excited about the new ES700, I took the liberty to translate the few reviews I found of the headphones on kakaku.com (a very popular Japanese price comparing, review and product info website.)

Review 1:
買ってきちゃいました。
イヤホンでは1万円以上の機種も持ってますが、ヘッドホンで1万円以上は初めてです。
まずES7とES700の試聴機を比較すると、明らかにES700の方がクリアだと感じました。
箱から出すと、まずケーブルに目がいきました。
めちゃめちゃしなやかで全然クセが付いてない!
まだ箱から出したばかりなのでちょっと篭ってますが、これからどこまでクリアになるのか楽しみです。
ES7との差が感じられないようなら他の機種を買おうと思ってましたが、正直予想以上でした。
帰ってから気付いたんですが、この機種って「MADE IN JAPAN」なんですね。
なんだかうれしい。
I ended up buying it.
I own earphones that cost more than a 110$, but this is the first time I've bought headphones that cost more than a 110$.
First of all, when I compared the listening experience between the ES7 and the ES700, I noticed that the ES700 obviously sounded a lot clearer.
When I took the headphones out the box, the first thing that catched my eye was the cable.
It looked very supple/ductile and didn't have any faults!
I just started listening to these so the sound is a little confined , but I'm excited to see how much better the sound is going to become from now on,
I thought the sound quality compared to the ES7 wouldn't be much different and that I would buy another pair of headphones, but these headphones were not at all like what I thought they would be like and far surpassed my expectations.
After coming back home, I noticed that these headphones were actually Made in Japan.
Somehow I'm happy. (The fact that they're made in Japan and that he was surprised by the headphones....)

Nice. It is good news that it seem to have impressed the buyer who owns the ES7. An improved version it seems. AT seems to be improving all their older line up. The A900 to the A900X, the AD900 to the AD900X. Now the ES7 to the ES700.  CKS77 to the new CKS99 and CKS1000.. Excited to hear them for certain.

Nice, thanks for the review... I ordered a pair form Rakuten and hope to get them in 2 or 3 weeks.

Ya Rakuten is a good site to get stuff too but one issue with them when you check out. They want some type of bank transfer for funds. Which is completely whack. If my credit card is not good for them I will shop with Amazon Japan every single time. It is much easier to check out with Amazon Japan.

 

My package from Tenso was delivered yesterday so I am gonna guess around 4 days till I get my package, hoping before this weekend.

Wow that's pretty quick.

I've contacted my eBay mate that's in shanghai to see if he can get hold of them and if he does then maybe he can do me them even cheaper than £100.

That would be a freaking steal!

Still I wonder how big the deference is between then and the JVCs. Hopefully you will be able to tell us by the end of the week mate. ;-)

haha THIS!!!

It's definitely very interesting to see made in Japan headphones at such a low price (around 13000 JPY.) After all, I haven't heard of even a flagship sony IEM or headphone that's not been made in Thailand recently. 

post #30 of 1038

I would like to know if the ES500 is made in Japan.
