I quite stuck in between this and M50 for portable use as the WS99 is very hard to find... sadly.
How do ES700 compared to the M50?
which one do you prefer over these two? Cheers.
Hmmm that sucks to hear about the WS99s....
Never heard the M50s but have owned their Monoprice DJ bootleg version, and many say they sound very similar. Lets just say the ES700s are much more refined esp. in the mids region. The overall sound of the ES700s is much more intricate/ complex compared to the dull/ basic sound of the Monoprice DJ cans.
For $20 what you get from the Monoprice DJs is a steal indeed, esp. since you get pretty good bass quality/ quantity, ok mids as well as highs, but the ES700s is a completely different animal/ beast. And if the M50s indeed sound very similar to the Monoprice DJs then it is a no brainer the ES700s is gonna best them. You might get more bass quantity on the M50s, but quality wise the ES700s should be better not just in the mids/ highs but bass as well, me thinks.
The Kicker cans are the same as the Monoprice DJs it seems and the nutman did a comparo with the M50 in his thread wayyy back.
Happy reading. :)
