  • Summary: I'm an Audio Technica fanboy, and I love their sound. Compared to the AD2000 headphone with a Gilmore Lite and Bel Canto DAC3, I actually didn't miss it when I only had my ES7. Just a nice headphone to have for fun listening. I used the 'phat pad' mod for both. The ES7 and the AD2000 share a more similar sound signature than the other ATH cans. Some of AudioTechnica's headphones can be be tedious, the W5000, M50, and AD2000 come to mind.
  • Pros: Tight base, sweet mids, good at faking tonal balance
  • Cons: Not the most extended highs or detailed lows, fragile cable

  • Summary: Very good portable, especially for the price of around 90 USD. Soundstage and highs are strenghts, bass is what you usually get from AT phones, good quality but impact isnt there, but again, it's a matter of personal taste.

  • Summary: These come in two different models, white and black, filling the need for a closed portable at a moderate price. - The pleather earpads are comfortable for perhaps an hour or two of listening, though hardly as plush as Sony's V6. But these have the advantage of folding flat - good for carrying in backpacks or small cases. You can achieve notable improvements in comfort by rolling rotating the earphone appropriately. Supra-aural, they're also a modest size.

  • Summary: I got a good deal on these and took the chance since I owned the AD-700 and tested the M-50 once.  Audio Technica knows what sound is and they do a fantastic job for their low price headphones.  After reading that these things have nice bass and people prefer them over the AD-700, I had to give them a try.  I wasn't impressed at first, but people said with burn-in, they become better.  So I burned them in a little and they were definitely correct in that aspect.
  • Pros: Sound, Style, Modable, Value, Sleek
  • Cons: Comfort, Rubber headband

  • Summary: the ES7 were my first 'expensive' headphone. I'd never spent more than $50 previously. Buying these was the start of my headphone passion. I'd always been a hi-fi stereo person, as i need to feel bass, i don't like it boomy or over whelming but i need to feel it. I thought i could never get a similar sensation from headphones so i never bothered buying mor than cheap upgrades over the awful sound from stock earphones.   The ES7's were a revelation to my ears.
  • Pros: Great sound, good detail, fun engaging listen
  • Cons: uncomfortable

  • Summary: I purchased these primarily for travelling for £134 GBP and was looking something a bit cool, so after reviewing it hear felt I could take a gamble and buy these online without trying them first, my home cans are Senn's 598 and these are not for public use, though I have tried and No No No..
  • Pros: look good, good sound quality amp driven or not
  • Cons: wire looks weak

  • Summary: As i have said in previous reviews, the only way to adequately evaluate a pair of headphones is to own quite a few for a long time. This way you have some valid ground for comparison. If this is you're first venture into quality phones then of course you'll rate them highly but compared to what? As far as portable low impedance headphones go these are some of the best I've heard. The burn in period is short. Sonically these can crank out some addicting sounds.

  • Summary: My new headphones rock. For someone who likes to listen to experimental and classical music in addition to more raucous music, the clarity and depth are about a million times greater than with the ol' ear buds. Plus I paint in a sometimes loud communal studio area, and I wanted a way to drown out the commotion without going deaf or being limited to music with a beat.

  • Summary: I saw this pair of headphones at the local Apple Store. They had it on display with the iPod and it sounded wonderful (but don't buy it there; their mark up was insane). If you're an audiophile, you may be impressed with its performance. You could hear everything the artist intended for you to hear. Even with the amount of people around me, it didn't fail to let me hear the music clearly. The only problem I had was how flimsy the wires were...
