Can't knock 'em.
Network_Droid_#56397, 16.06.2020
I'm using these plugged into a Scarlett 18i20 for use with Logic and Adobe video apps.

Noise isolation:
I have very wide ear canals so none of the included tips worked for me. Even though the included large silicon tips appear to be a very similar size to the ones on my BeatsX they still didn't quite fit so I'm using the silicone tips from my Beats X.

Sound:
Much bigger and fuller than my 'Apple in-ear with microphone' headphones (£60 from Apple.com) that I'd been using (actually pretty decent 'phones). When I plugged the E70's in, the mess that I'd made EQ-ing a beat was immediately apparent. I went in and reduced the excessive EQ and effects I'd applied. I think this is probably the most illuminating thing I can say about these IEM's - the difference was honestly dramatic and I'm not easily impressed.
I've since bought a Focusrite 18i20 and the E70 sound quality has revealed itself even further.

Comfort:
Initially I found that after wearing for several hours they'd press into my ear and cause discomfort. The earpiece body is quite angular as opposed to the Shure's and I think this is why. It's obviously personal thing to me and mileage will vary with other users but I do have sensitive ears and even over ear headphones have hurt me in the past - so don't read too much into this. Over the last week the discomfort has lessened greatly as I've adapted to wearing this style of headphone but I've ordered a DIY custom ear mould set anyway (£12) which will hopefully eliminate the issue.

Quality:
Very well made and sturdy. Cable connection to earpiece feels very solid. I was especially impressed when I removed the silicone ear tip to reveal a tiny hole for the sound to escape as opposed to being fully open - this will prevent ear wax finding its way in. Cable length is decent. These 'phones actually look better in real life than they do in the pictures.

Overall:
The E70's are probably very good for the price but then I've not tried others in this weight division so the review can only ever be limited. Like I say I'm not easily impressed and I'll often send things back several times until I find the right item but I'll be keeping these.

Message to Thomann - since we're all taking the time to report on our experiences and ultimately help you sell stuff and increase your wealth can we all get a some kind of 'reviewers discount'? I think this is a mutually beneficial and very reasonable idea. Thanks.

Serious upgrade from SE215
GarethOB, 16.10.2019
I used to use a set of SE215s for my in ear monitoring but it always felt very muddy/poorly defined. I thought this was down to getting a mono feed, but a friend encouraged me to upgrade.

It's a night and day difference with the ATH-e70. They are more expensive, but a good bit cheaper than the triple driver shures, and honestly they're at least as good. It's made a world of difference with my in ear monitoring!

Worth every penny
susman, 19.07.2019
I was looking for a good quality IEMs, mainly for HiFi and some monitoring on-the-go.

I tried quite a few different IEMs, including these praised Chinese "5 BAs/3 BA+Dynamic" miracles. Spoiler alert: don't fall for it, Chinese may put 10 BA drivers into one earphone, but there's no proper engineering/tuning, so it really doesn't matter how many drivers they may put, if they don't tune them.

I stopped my search once I heard ATH-E70. This pair is just the best 300 EUR can get.

It's 3 BA drivers, very well engineered, very balanced sound - although it does depend a lot on silicone/foam buds you'd be using.

None of the included silicone buds ( foam buds cut highs, I dropped them immediately ) fit my ears, I have generic replacement buds lying around that fit very well, so that ( the only ) problem is solved.

ATH-E70 are highly recommended for any application IEMs may be used for.

Excellent and value for money IEM
Tim1959, 17.07.2019
I have been researching the best possible IEM at a sensible price for some time now. Previously I used a Klipsch X10i which has proved OK but lacking in a balanced output - not enough lower mid and bass. At any rate, they are literally falling apart!
I trust Audio Technica as a company and the ATH-E70s confirmed this trust. Excellent build quality and really comfortable. Soundwise - again, excellent ie reasonably balanced across the range with no glaring issues. Great sound stage and dynamics. Bass is a tad elevated with a complete ear seal, but I'd rather that than be irritated by excessive treble.
Only gripe - had to buy some large comply tips. Not much to moan about then :-)
Thomann also excellent - extra year warranty the reason I went with them.
