    The article linked earlier says that it's a specially designed driver for this model, so it's not the same as the ES10 one.
    Although AT writes that about all pretty much all their new/limited models. Even though they all seem to fall into a certain size category (generally 42 for portable and 53mm for full sized), all the models I've heard
    definitely sound distinctly different, so I reckon they did something special for this one as well.

    The ESW9/10 only had 42mm drivers, so it's quite a bit bigger than those. My friend had the ES10 with the 53mm sized drivers, and I recall those sounded more aggressive than its wooden cupped counterparts,
    I wonder how this one will sound.
     
     
    Of course I'd want to have one, but I'm really happy with my Beyer 1350 and this one's just too hot for my wallet.

    There must be fine differences, because the AD2000X also has a 53mm Driver.
     
    There is one question I have. When Audio Technica talks about "Limited editions". How limited is this really? I mean, are there only 1000#...or 10000#

    It's complicated, because not all limited edition headphones are labeled "Limited." That's actually just one of the names they use for their limited editions, the other most common being "Japan." How many headphones they produce for each limited series varies from one to the next, but a common number is usually 2,000 units (W10LTD, W3000ANV). Sometimes however it can be as low as 1000 units (W2002), 800 units (W11R), or even 500 units (L3000).

    I've seen reports of 1500 (1000 for Japan, 500 for export).

    I'm so interested. When will these be available Stateside?

    That makes sense, it's always seemed like there wasn't a whole lot and they sold out fairly quickly unlike the W3000ANV which must have been 2000 worldwide.

    Damn it! How many different ES models are Audio Technica going to release? Now we have: ESW11LTD, ES10, ESW9, ES88, ES700, ES7, ES55, ES500 and ES33.
     
    Right now the ES7 is listed at just around 9,800 yen on Yodobashi, and the ES700 which will be released in November, is listed at 14,800 yen.
     
    The ESW11LTD looks nice, but it might be the same drivers as in the ES10. So I think I'm sticking with my ES10. However, I wonder what the differences are between the ES7, ES700 and ES88...

    From what read here is that the cups are now brushed metal and the headband is different, more like the higher priced ESWs or the ES10. The driver is probably the same, but the ES7 has 32 Ohm and the ES700 has 36 Ohm.

    I really hope the ATH-ESW11LTD does have the same ES10 drivers! The new ES500 looks a lot more like the current ES7 with a similar headband. Audio Technica is trolling us a bit with the numbering scheme?

    Sorry, I should have written "I wonder what the sonic differences are between the ES7, ES700 and ES88".
     
    I wonder if the ES7 is going to be discontinued? But the ES55 is pretty new and the ES500 would logically be a replacement for that model. Why did Audio Technica introduce the ES88? Questions. So many questions!
