EarSonics announce new model: the 5 BA ES5

The Headphone List has a long tradition of reviewing EarSonics models; between average_joe, ljokerl, and I, we’ve pretty much covered all of them in the last years. Some models as the Velvet were even covered multiple times. The reason isn’t that EarSonics is a partner of the site in any way; we all happen to share a deep appreciation for their models. Even though their house sound is continuously changing, EarSonics has always offered a very musical sound at its core, combining emotional sound with technicality.

Their latest in line is a new 5 driver model, the ES5; in Max’ words, the marketing director, it combines the best features of the Velvet, S-EM9, and EM10. I’m personally hoping that means the sub-bass power of the Velvet, tone of the EM10, and technical precision of the S-EM9, but I’m aware that might be a lot to ask. But hey, one can dream. Max has confined it’s become a personal favorite, so I have no doubt that whatever the outcome, it won’t disappoint.






Nic is currently in pursuit of a PhD degree in social neuropsychology, while trying not to get too distracted by this hobby. In pursuit of theoretical knowledge by day, and audiophile excellence at night. Luckily for him, both activities are not mutually exclusive which helps to lighten the workload. Always on the go, Nic's enthusiasm for hi-fi is focused on all chains of the portable system: iems, cables and daps.
