Summary: Yup, it's purple, and beige. It also has wings! Well those are for comfort; and homie, they are comfortable. When I received the Audio Technica AD700's, I chuckled a bit when I plugged it into my receiver for a movies/games test. I was thinking...these couldn't sound better than my Beyerdynamic DT770 pros, could they? LOL, yeah right. The colorful alien from Japan just vaporized my Beyers. Sold the Beyers.
Summary: Comfort & Fit
The AD700X are reasonably comfortable. How comfortable they are and how well they fit depends entirely on the size and shape of your head. They are not made for something with a small head and they don't have an adjustable headband to account for different head sizes, although the 3D wings are flexible so it does have some head room (heh heh...) for fit.
The ear cups are quite large. They will fit around fairly large ears easily.
Pros: Very detailed sound. Great soundstage. Great separation. Good build.
Cons: Light bass. Sounds a little cold. Comfort depends on head size/shape and your ears can rub against the drivers.

Summary: With Over 88% of user headphone ratings scoring the ATH-AD700 positively (score of 4 or 5 based on a 5 point scale of 110 user headphone reviews) and not a single professional reviwer giving it less than a 8/10 (based on 5 reviews), you know these Audio Technica's are worth their weght in gold.
provides great sound for you, not so much for those around you.

Summary: lets see where to begin. certainly the most comfortable pair of headsets i have ever had. however that comes at a cost, as mentioned in cons it leaks sound. not just on the higher volumes either, if you can hear the sound, the people next to you can hear it also. the headset is also very large compared to others . this is good news for some, but if you have a small head, be aware. also comes with a good long cord.
Pros: sound quality, comfort, good sturdy cord.
Cons: leaks sound like crazy, not a headset for public use.
Summary: I bought these instead of the ATH M50, and i'm glad I did. I listened to the M50s and wasn't too impressed. After reading reviews I opted for the AD700s.
Look and build quality.
They look kinda dorky, no other way to say it. But good headphones aren't about looks. The purple/ pink outer mesh is an odd shade but distinctive, you'll never confuse these with another pair. The pads are comfy and very large, large enough to encompass my whole ear, which is good.
Pros: Very comfortable, good sound stage, neutral with slight emphasis on Hi's and Mid's
Cons: Bass can be lacking, Mid's can get a little muddled
Summary: This is my first ever headphone that I have and I really like it. I would highly recommend it as an entry level headphones. For the amount you pay for, you cannot complain anymore.
The sound is crisp and clear. Just that the bass is weak and certain genres of music are not very suitable. Classical, orchestra, strings sound really well on these cans.
In short, if you are looking for a comfortable and sub $200 headphones, the AD700 would be on top of the list.
Summary: I've had these for 2 1/2 years now, and have been very happy. They replaced my Sennheiser 570, which are also very good, but not as clear as these. The AD700 is also better than the low-end Stax that I used to use. I'm driving them through an older Arcam 45-watt integrated amp with no problems - volume control is barely above the minimum for a decent listening level.
Dynamics and imaging are very good. Bass is normal, not overemphasized.
Pros: Clean, clear sound, good dynamics and imaging
Cons: Really big, slight brightness on some recordings
Summary: this is a good beginer hifi setup
nice bas and high treble with clean sound
don't get me wrong they sound grate
all in all I would recomined them to anyone on a buget
the only con is that it has funnky coloers
