!st impressions is WOW these are supposed to be "BASS" cans. Hot damn they sound well balanced!!! Nice extended treble w/o harshness/ sibilance with mids that just wraps around you and eats you up, combined with deep textured lows that makes you want mo'. These things are HOTNESS. And i didn't even burn them in yet, now i know how WAYNE felt when he 1st got them, they need burn-in??? LoL

Those are pretty damn sexy right there! Did you choose next day air to get them that fast!?! I'm so used to only paying $3.99 for next day... $25 just hurts

Yes. The combo of dsnuts and ATH definitely has impacted my bank account lately. But my ears are pretty happy biggrin.gif. I absolutely love both the WS99's and the AD900X's.

Still waiting for Ds comparison between ES10 and WS99 to make my decision ... ES10's price has dropped to ~25000Y on Amazon, starts to be an interesting offer.

Maxx134 has both and has done some comparisons in this thread. He might be able to provide you with more impressions. I've also been waiting on his final verdict :)

Great :3
I gave a listen to ES10 in the only AT store in Paris. Immediatly fell in love with its sound. But less with the 530€ pricetag ... :/
However WS99 isnt available on Europe still so cant give a listen , that's a shame .. Seems to fit my needs tough, i listen mostly to House/Techno music, with heavy and fast kicks.

If you don't mind, could you provide me a link to a few good House/Techno songs? I prefer soundcloud because the bitrate is usually pretty high, but any links will do. Thanks!

Of course mate.

 

Found some HD tracks on Youtube, as most of them are previews on Soundcloud.

 

 

Head High - Rave (Dirt mix) : classic techno track, with heavy kicks. A joy to listen ! (320kbps here)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vfOedkrWL4

 

DVS1 - Evolve : a bit more metallic sounding

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cguAMLEJIQE

 

Floorplan - Confess : nice house track, with fast drums kicks

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2qaDZLkWXM

 

WAX - 50005A : Dub techno, more on the chilly side 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKO9yJgQn6o

 

Joy Orbison - Mercy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tAmoMIhKK0

 

Last but not least : 

Samuli Kemppi - Escape (i love it, however SQ on youtube is a bit crappy on this one)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoC5McQSxCg

 

Enjoy!

Get the es700 if you liked the es10 as is has similar signature yet not as grand.
Although the S700 still larger than most other on ear cans.

Get the ws99 if you want more lower mids in the sig and different type of bass... a "solid bass".

Personally I am still amazed by the es10 mids,
That are sweet like the highs, instrument separation and details are high.


But they seem missing the weight of the mids that the ws99 has,
wich solidifies the instruments in their respective space...
hmm.
More burn in necessary. ..

I guess it's a matter of preference as es10 sound brighter in the mids than the ws99..
 

And I don't doubt a single word of that. I replaced a DT880 (600 Ohm!) with the ES10, and I never even bothered looking back.

Thanks Bill. 

 

Looks like it's going to be WS99 for me, but I'd have liked to give a try first..!

 

An add to my previous post : this is one of the best live techno set I've ever heard. I could use some of the WS99's "Solid Bass" on this :D

Try it in 1080p, it sounds rather nice for a live record. enjoy

The problem is that neither are burned in properly except my es700.
I have the es10 not only with new drivers but with a cable upgrade and new esw9 lambskin pads.
In that state it should be a killer. .

The second problem is that the es10 keeps changing sound on me.
Notably the bass more than anything. Tighter and more detailed..amazing. . But only at less than 30 hours burn.
I need to setup a burn station lol.

NOW onto the ws99. ..
These are changing in that the mids are getting deeper and deeper. .
This thing is getting BIGGER. .. :O
Dynamic range is high and percussion can hit amazingly hard with certain music.
So, at only mmaybe 60hrs am not close to burning them in yet!

They are both increasing and I doubt I will find any portable that can beat this dynamic duo...
