There is so much good stuff coming from Japan at the moment.
So why does almost every single seller here say that it ships from Japan??
I guess they are to be compared to the ES7 :
|Driver Diameter||42 mm|
|Voice Coil||Copper clad aluminum wire|
|Frequency Response||5 Hz - 30,000 Hz|
|Maximum Power Input||1,000 mW|
|Sensitivity||100 dB/mW at 1 kHz|
|Cable||1.2 m (4 ft), OFC, Y-type|
|Connector||3.5 mm (1/8") mini stereo, gold-plated|
|Accessories Included||Protective pouch; cleaning cloth|
Characteristics are almost the same. Hope the drivers are really new and better. Visually they look similare but headband looks very comfortable on the 700, cable looks a little different and has an "L" shaped jack instead of the straight one of the ES7,I hope it is stronger. Folding mechanism is exactly the same as the ES7 too and wheight is the same.
BUT these are ATHs, you in the wrong thread buddy. GET OUTTA HERE!!!
That's what you get for the non-proper use of memes.
LOL, what you posted was way worse then what I said, but hey it's all good.
Anyway with a MSRP at $199 these things better kick A** three ways until sunday.
You're talking HD 598 price range...
No worries, i just like to give people a hard time. A lil' payback for those sad S500s you have hurt and is about to trade to me. i jokes i joke, but serious though.
Done about 20 hrs of research the last few days into a good pair of portables. I was pretty much down to the ES7 and M-80 and saw these so decided to give them a shot and ordered. Mostly will be used while sitting at the poker table so I don't want complete isolation but I want to avoid as much leakage as possible as I also got an E11 and don't want to bother ppl around me. Hope these turn out as well as expected.
Will these be released outside of Japan? Although they look sexy as hell, ~$200 + $20 shipping is a bit much for me. For that price I could be getting a DT1350, which would be fine if they sound comparable to the ESW9 or ES10... but at this point no one knows what they sound like.
