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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
