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 bought these for gaming and the sound stage was just what I was looking for. However even though my head is 60cm they fit loosely on my head which wasnt a massive problem as I was going to use them for gaming (Sitting still). However the main problem and the reason I sent them back was that the cushions rest slightly on my ear. This ends up being unbearably uncomfortable after 20 mins. In the end I went for some Senn's which don't touch the ear at all.
