The ESP950 Electrostatic Stereophone System is the pinnacle of audio reproduction. The standard upon which all other stereo headphones can be measured. A professional listening system so distortion free, it literally pushes the limits of the world's most sophisticated instruments that attempt to measure its performance. The result is an experience that no other stereo system can approach. A revolutionary design in electrostatic transducers which includes cross matched mechanical damping and semi-conductive coating. The result is an ultra-flat frequency response across the entire range: deep, clean bass with real power that other attempts at electrostatic transducers can only envy.
Fantastic Fones For Fastidious Fanatics1/21/2008
I have been using these on and off for about 12 years. They sound great, they are comfortable, and they come with a LIFETIME warranty! You will never buy another pair of headphones after these because most sound like crap in comparison. Your ears fit completely inside the cups, so there is nothing pressing against them - VERY comfortable. You can hear through them- no attempt was made to make them isolate you from outside sounds- it wouldn't work with electrostatic drivers anyway. Sennheiser's higher end models come close and don't need an amplifier to play. The only complaints I can make are minor. The ear pads are covered with a very thin, soft vinyl over soft foam and they can get sweaty after a couple hours, but most phones will have you screaming in pain before you can use them that long. I would have preferred the velvet cloth that Sennheiser uses. The mechanism that attaches the ear cup's bails to the head band is not strong enough to take much abuse. I have had to glue one of mine back together when it snapped due to being knocked off the wing of a chair to a hard floor. The concentric volume control knobs are a little cheesy and hard to adjust separately because of their small size. For this price they should use better knobs. The amp is very simple- inputs on front and rear panels, concentric volume controls allow you to adjust balance. I had an amp failure about 6 years ago and sent it back to Koss and they replaced it with a new one, no questions, no delays. If you have the budget to buy $700 headphones, these should be on your short list of phones to try.
