  • Summary: There's a lot said on this forum about these cans. Nearly all is positive, which was also the reason for buying them. My conclusion: they REALLY need burn-in and they are fine, but not that good as some here state. Don't get me wrong, I'm an Audio Technica lover, but maybe I was expecting too much.
  • Pros: nicely built, low profile look, yet distinguised, fine mids
  • Cons: no sparkling highs, no padding on headband

  • Summary: Not much to say, it is better than other entry on ear headphones in how neautral the sound is. But some other headphones in the same range can have a more fun sound and better comfort.
  • Pros: Nice sound and quite neutral.
  • Cons: Not soft enough on the ears compared to other on ears.

Sound great, but evidently poor plug design

  • Summary: I won't repeat the praise others have given - I think they sound very good and this is compared to the pair of Sennheiser PX200 I had before, which when I first bought I thought sounded like the best thing since sliced toast, but these sound even better, so must be like sliced toast with jam on top!

Great sound, pity about the headband

  • Summary: These are a lovely sounding pair of headphones. They have a well rounded and punchy sound and because they are closed backed block a decent amount of sound coming in when used as a commuter.

A good pair of earphones

  • Summary: I can see why these got such a good review in 'What Hifi?' - they are light with excellent sound. Another bonus is that they keep the sound in your ears, rather than let most of it spill out and annoy other folks on the train. The only downside is the rather flimsy cabling.

A review after a few weeks of use

Mohaimin, Amazon

  • Summary: Most people write reviews within the first hour of getting their product but in the case of headphones this is probably not the best approach. After a few weeks I don't think I've gotten the full burn in period as I haven't used them constantly everyday, but in general they are getting progressively...

Great Headphones with small problem

Jack, Amazon

  • Excerpt: Брал для жены - она использует их исключительно на улице. Поэтому наушники должны быть стильными (для девочки всё-таки) и лёгкими, чтобы уши не уставали и ободок не давил. В итоге, этот вариант понравился, т.к. отвечает всем перечисленным требованиям, да ещё и звук не самый плохой.
  • Pros: Дизайн, габариты, вес, сборка, в целом - звук не самый плохой.
  • Cons: По звуку - средне. Задраны средние, не хватает низких. По сборке - всё ок, но штекер мини-джека могли бы сделать прочнее. Кабель традиционно для audio-technica хлипкий и может порваться в любой момент.

  • Excerpt: Долго себе искал наушники на каждый день для плеера. Купил эти ES55, потому что они единственные удовлетворили меня по соотношению звук / эргономика / цена.
  • Pros: - Звук, - Прочность / Долговечность, - Эргономика, - Цена
  • Cons: - Комплектация, - Слабоватые басы

  • Excerpt: Несмотря на то, что в моем отзыве поле "Недостатки" заполнено более емко, я все же не могу сказать что наушники плохие, их оценка "4" и я считаю это достаточным.
  • Pros: За эту цену они, несомненно, хороши. Звук на уровне, достаточно чистый, по моему чуть преобладают верха. Уши легкие, достаточно удобно сидят на голове. Дизайн с использованием алюминия производит хорошее впечатление.
  • Cons: Плохая шумоизоляция, был откровенно разочарован ей. Хотя, скорее всего, мои ожидания от этой модели были несколько завышены, и не следует ждать чего-то великолепного от наушников стоимостью 2.500р, но все же, в метро помимо музыки слышно много чего, чего не скажешь про улицу - на ней шумоизоляции...
