  • Summary: These are my initial impressions after a week of use, with a 2011 Macbook Air & RSA Shadow.   Value: 5/5  Value is relative, so I'm defining this value as relative to the top end IEM market.  I don't have any experience with other top end IEM such as the JH13/16 or UE11/18 so I can only compare price.  In that case the ES5 has the lowest price for a top end, brand-name IEM at $900-950.
  • Pros: Everything

  • Summary: Please excuse my inexperience in reviewing audio gear - however I wish to contribute what I can to information on this product.   First a bit of background - I previously came from sony ex700, earsonics sm3, and HifiMan reZERO.  es5 is my first custom, and the closest earphone I have heard to it is the earsonics SM3 which I will be using as the basis for comparison in many areas.
  • Pros: smooth sound reproduction, lush mids, slightly warm, impact and presence
  • Cons: forward mids can get a bit uncouth on some recordings
