  • Summary: When I was on a look out for my first serious headphones, I came across this beautiful 'Geisha' by the name of ESW9. 'Gorgeous' was the first word that I uttered upon gazing the headphone for the first time. But seeing a lot of stylish cans coming out as of late, I was wary; will it be another of those style over substance type of 'trash' I was hearing about? I did some more in depth research and decided that I pull the trigger on them.
  • Pros: Outstanding midrange, Good for a variety of genres, Beautiful design (especially the wood housing)
  • Cons: Worst isolation for a portable, somewhat fragile construction (particularly the swivel joints)

  • Summary: I got these as my first set and I couldn't be more satisfied.   I ordered them refurbished for $149.00 from an audiotechnica certified dealer on the internet (ironically, I ordered the ESW9As, but got a set of these instead--what serendipitous fortune!).   Seeing as I listen to Jazzy Beats (see songs such as 'The Strange Fruit Projects - Maintain' for reference) as well as soundtracks ('A Dark Knight,' etc.
  • Pros: Amazing high and mid ranges. Female Vocals, Jazz and Orchestral Music is amazing.
  • Cons: Bass is not very heavy, but it is there (compared to a pair of ATH-M50s)

  • Summary: there really is nothing else like the esw9 headphones out there. If you love warm tubey like sound on the go there is simply nothing that can compete.Yes they are colored and the bass overblown but its so well judged that they remain hifi quality still giving you a glimpse into the music. Theres no sharp bass slam, if you like your bass punchy and hard hitting like a blow from mike tyson in his prime then you wont like these.

  • Excerpt: Наушники приобретены в декабре и уже 4 месяца я их не снимаю. Совершенно шикарный звук даже в связке с не топовыми источниками (Cowon C2). Широкая сцена, прекрасная детализация, прекрасный тональный баланс. Слегка приукрашены ВЧ, но мне очень нравится. Звучание динамичное. Очень круто.
  • Pros: - звук - звук - звук - качество материалов - удобная посадка - дизайн
  • Cons: Недостатков не обнаружено
