Heard that my head-fier friends here in Thailand are saying the ESW10JPN sounds like ATH W2002 in smaller scale.

need your help guys.



Interesting question - about a brand new kid on the block.
Can't be many head-fiers who have heard these new guys
and can give you a reliable answer.
No detailed reports yet out yet on their sound signature.
Focusing on exactly how they differ from the 9s.
Do you have a pair of the esw10s?
Or have you heard them?
I do have a pair.
Recently acquired, naturally.
I found myself putting a pair of Beyerdynamic leather earpads
I had lying around over and around the esw10 earpads.
It seems to add an extra fullness to the sound.
Though I haven't switched back and forth to confirm the change.
Of course, the Beyer pad does change the minimal appearance.
Probably a (the?) major attraction of these cans.
I wonder what substituting a fuller cup to esw10s would do to
the sound.
That might be the answer to your question.

i have heard the esw10 personally and i am amazed by the sound that it produces.

however i am planning to get a full size can, thus i need to find one that sounds like the esw10.

any idea how the esw10 compare to the d2000?

Have you listened to the ESW10 hooked up the WA6?

Yes, sorry. You mean you couldn't read my mind?

Okay, ESW10JPN sounds very very nice with the WA6 maxed, I have no complaints and it is good enough that I never bothered to try the Single Power Square Wave XL sitting right next to it.

Sorry I was just messing with you before.
