Summary: I had a set of ATH-AD700 for about a year. Generally, I liked the sound and learned to live with the 'one size fits all' design. Their bulk was a little annoying, but acceptable.
After about a year of ownership, the left channel developed an audible buzz / vibration during passages with very low frequencies, so I decided to send them back to Audio Technica Australia for service. That was where the fun started.
Summary: I really wanted to like these headphones. They sound really good - very clear and three-dimensional. However, notice carefully as you look at the pictures of these phones: The earcups can adjust/rotate about a more-or-less vertical axis, but they cannot adjust/rotate around a horizontal axis. They are firmly attached to the spring wires that go over your head. The only way to make the earcups parallel to one another is to pull them apart until they're parallel.
