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.)
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。
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....)
