those are not as good as the w5000 lol i heard the esw9 and was not impressed, also, i find the earpads on the esw9 uncomfortable, and esw10 is pretty much the same. that being said, i want to switch to a grado because it is smaller, and when i tried on the grado it was actually pretty comfortable.

Raffinato! Very nice... do these require an amplifier if you're going to use them with an iPod?

eh it will sound better with an amplifier but ive used it with portable players and it sounds fine. does it sound better if i add another $500 piece of equipment? of course (and even if it doesnt you can bet that ill imagine a large improvement). the bigger impediment to portable use, and why you should get the esw10 if thats what you want, is that the cable is ~3m long. actually, instead of esw10, i would just get earbuds. if you like the audiotechnica sound the ck10 is ~$240 and better than the esw9 imo, and the ck100 which i havent tried is quite pricey but apparently very good. cheaper if you can get it from japan

I've tried lots of canalphones and iems from AT and other makers but my favorites have always been the ATH-CK7. They have the best cost:build quality:sound quality ratio of anything I've ever tried.

I got mt ESW10 for a good deal with 30% cashback late last year. They sound much better than the ESW9 but the ESW9 provides much better value.

damn i wish the cashback was still going on... really was better for electronics than clothes

1. This is a for sale ad., not for chat.
2. Why would you recommend some other headphones in someone's for sale ad?
