    Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 Discussion Thread

    I think you need to understand that the price on kakaku is their street price and that is for a product which is already 7 years old. The MSRP of ESW9 is actually 36,000 JPY as listed on the official JP product page. Naturally, the retailers will lower the price to push the product since it is...

    Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 Discussion Thread

    I m quite surprised to hear that the MSR7 is more expensive than ESW9 because it is certainly not the case in Singapore. ESW9 is selling for 438SGD whereas the MSR7 is 268SGD (LTD is 288SGD) Are you sure you got the prices correct?

    New Audio Technica Limited Edition Woodies: ATH-ESW9LTD!!

      Unfortunately, I have not heard the ESW10JPN to comment on the differences between them. But the mid-range on ESW9LTD is forward, clear and actually a little on the cold side (but does not sound analytic / mechanical). Frankly speaking, I prefer the mid on ESW9LTD over ESW11LTD. In fact, I am...

    New Audio Technica Limited Edition Woodies: ATH-ESW9LTD!!

    In terms of build, ESW9LTD is the same as ESW9 and features the same thin, flimsy cable but now with a L-shaped connector. The earcups are glazed with varnish so they actually looked pretty nice (and maybe easier to maintain), a pity that the Audio-Technica wording is on top and not underneath...

    Review of Audio Technica ATH-IM01, ATH-IM02, ATH-IM03, ATH-IM04, ATH-IM50, & ATH-IM70

    IM03 dropped to 18,900 JPY at one point, many ordered at that price but very few people had their orders delivered. Shortly after a few units were shipped out, Amazon JP realised the mistake in pricing and cancelled all subsequent orders. Even most of the buyers who ordered on 6th got their...

    Review of Audio Technica ATH-CKR9 & ATH-CKR10

      It is interesting to know that the change is significant after long burn in but how much did you have burnt in on both models? I came across a review that the owner spent 170 hours on the CKR10 and he didn't notice much difference. The mid-range is what some owners kinda dislike because they...

    Review of Audio Technica ATH-CKR9 & ATH-CKR10

    Tried out both the CKR9 and 10 and I will say though I prefer CKR9 a little bit more than 10, IM03 is still better than both in treble, sound stage and tonality. The cable is also very microphonic (more so than IM series original cables). They should have made both models with removable cables...

    Audio Technica AT-HA5050H and HA22Tube

    Though it looked like the HA5050 had been silent for quite some time but I have gotten news that it should likely be available at end of this year.

    Audio Technica AT-HA5050H and HA22Tube

    Two latest products from Audio Technica made their appearance at the recent Hong Kong high-end A/V show - the HA5050H and HA22Tube. The HA5050H has a completely different design from the HA2002/5000/5000ANV and does not have any of that famous, wooden front panel at all (WTH?!). It features...

    Where to buy Audio technica ESW10?

    Quote:   That links to ES10 and not ESW10JPN. These are two different earphones and ESW10JPN was already discontinued. You may wanna try your luck on auction sites but chances are slim. The ESW10 is going for pretty high price on Japanese online auctions.

    Audio Technica ATH-CKW1000: Through the Ages

    Dying to get one but the only set available in Singapore has a ridiculous price (by Jaben). Hoping to get it through Tenso.

    1964 Ears

    Read fellow Headfier Sopp's post on Mobile01 forum that V4 may (hopefully) be available early year and they are working on components that will allow the Q to be upgraded to V4. Now I am gonna take my quads off the classified and wait for that to happen
