The NEW ATH-ES700.. - Page 25

post #361 of 1041
Thread Starter 

I would get the ES700 first and see how you do with the stock pads but it usually takes a day or so to figure out they are not the most comfy pads on these cans.

AT's parts dept actually sells the WS55 pads for only 10$ shipped per pair - you have to inquire about them through email (parts@atus.com)

That's actually good news! I'll definitely get the pads from AT then biggrin.gif

Just wondering the actual size of these. Usually I can google headphones and you see pics of people wearing them...I guess these are too new or something. Are these like the DT1350 in size? Much larger?

Could somebody with a C&C BH/e11/portable amp comment on how much it improves the e700s? 

 

Straight out of a macbook/phone, I'm not sure if I prefer these over the m50. It may be that I more often prefer the laid-back signature of the m50 vs the aggressive, forwardness of the es700, but on some tracks the m50 has a certain dimension of depth that isn't there es700.

Is there a big difference after a burn in with these?

 

I just got them, they're quite comfortable, but they feel a tad weak. I found the treble great, but it lacked a punch in bass...hopefully a burn in will help?

Maybe try EQ? Also, since you got them and nobody complied with your request of a size comparison in the head; can you do one? :D

Haha, they actually fit really well. I would say they're slightly larger than the beats solo on my ear.

 

At first, I thought they were really comfortable, but after 20-30 mins, my ears started hurting..now i know why they recommend getting other pads.

 

They also started to break in after 3 hours or so of play (I left them playing while I was working then put them on again).

Can the ESW9 lambskin pads be fitted to these?

post #370 of 1041

No. I don't think so. My ESW11LTD pads didn't fit. I believe the size is pretty similar for the woodies (ESW9, ESW10JPN and ESW11LTD).

Is that a legit listing for sure? For $104 I might buy these right now.

The price is not from a third-party seller.

post #375 of 1041

I bought mine for about 112 AUD (incl. shipping) on amazon.jp before the price dropped. I had to use a forwarding service to get it into Australia though, Tenso is a pretty good option, they charged me about 2170 Yen in total for EMS shipping from their warehouse.

 

I wonder how they compare with my A700X
