SOLD! : MINT AudioTechnica ATH-ESW9 Wood Headphones Portable
Will Ship To: USA, Canada, or local pickup.
The ESW9 are sealed wood phones with lamb skin leather pads and headband. Can be driven directly from portable devices, doesn't need an amp to shine but one can never hurt. Has a a warm tone, with mids slightly forward and lush but by no means slouchy. Bass impact and extension is very impressive, hardest hitting sub-bass tracks will have the rumble feel but nothing drastic. This is for the recovering bass-head or non-bass head listeners. The warm nature leaves the treble non peaky with 0 sibilance but still with excellent detail and slight roll off at the highest freq. To me a slight lean towards a laid back sound, almost like having a tube amp in the chian (from you cell phone!). Sounds absolutely fantastic on my Samsung Galaxy 3 for all genres, excels in jazz, acoustic, vocals and classical. Sound stage is fantastic considering the closed back designs, instrument separation is excellent as well. IMO one of the most under rated under reviewed phones.
I have all the original box and accessories also in mint condition (actually never taken out of the box). Price includes shipping to USA but not Paypal fees, you may add 3.5% or gift the payment.
Also might be interested on an ODAC/Modi or comparable DAC for partial trade. If you'd like more pics please let me know.
