Oh man. I hope their manufacturing tolerances have improved. I've always loved how the ESP950 sounded, but never heard a pair that didn't have 'the squeal'. I've bought them several times spanning over the last 10 years, and it's just gotten worse. I keep returning them.
The lifetime warranty is worthless when every time they're serviced The Squeal gets worse.
Take 'em apart and look-- the conductive stator coatings suffer from overspray and poor masking, and I'm guessing that's making for intermittent leakage from coronal discharge all over. It's a serious pity. The design is solid, inexpensive and good. It's the manufacturing that falls down. "SQQQUUEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeee snapsnapsnapsnap"
I'll give 'em exactly one more try.
