haha! so you fell in love with the mids! Ha
Yes I sold my "old version" esw9 for these and then proceeded to extensive burn and mod the s400 to increase bass and trebles..
I was able to mod it to its limits to sound very much like the AKG k67 (small one) I had.
I sold it and consider its moded level approaching near tier of good mid priced cans but not punching above that especially NOT in stock form..
Oh and by the way I had both s400 & s500.. And similar gear with the hifimedy and O2..

Yes that speaks volumes in terms of quality and special signature sound that they don't trust china to do

Haha, looks like your in need of the cork mod first post, OR...
The full cork mod a few pages back
(Edit: cork mod revised..)
But then it really does kick *ss in bass over most portables to me.
I have to say in the es700,
Audio Tech made the drivers with greater potential then scaled back to tailor the sound..
Jvc did that to the s400 bass.Edited by Maxx134 - 6/18/13 at 9:28pm
