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.
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...
Summary: The Audio Technica ES7 does so many things right that you gradually realize that it's quite special.
= The ES7 can be worn like an ordinary headphone, then folded flat for storage in a backpack or briefcase. Few portables allow this kind of versatility. It's well made enough that it's clearly designed to last.
= These are closed headphones - so your music is kept private (for the most part, anyway).
THE VERY BEST "ON THE MOVE" CLOSED BACK HEADPHONES I HAVE HEARD REGARDLESS OF PRICE

Summary: Absolutely brilliant headphones that live exactly up to their excellent reputation. I cannot fault their performance - powerful, weighty bass combined with a highly detailed mid-range and sweet, clear treble, all underpinned by a wide deep 3D soundstage. Their mirror-finish stainless steel cups with contrasting black leather earpads and headband are real head-turners so don't expect to go unnoticed.
Summary: audio technica headphones are amazing Nuff said! i produce house music and for my production sessions i use audio technica athM50 headphones, for listening on the go i use these athes7's. the sound is nothing short of astounding, they sound even better after some burn in time, kind of like a fine wine the athes7 have many different layers of flavour for your listening pleasure.
