Summary: I put off this review for a while for a few reasons. First, I wanted to try these out with more than one amp before making a call on these. Second, The HD700 have some things that just generally confuse, or/and seem a bit odd/hard to describe.
Summary: I wanted to discuss a bit about HD700 today. I wouldnt include graphs or too much technical information. Simply the way I hear them and how I made a system around them as that is very important with HD700. So, lets get started with little details.
BUILD AND FINISH
HD700 is built very well.
Pros: detail and resolution, dynamics, imaging and huge soundstage
Summary: January 1st 2014
First off "Happy New Year"
Took awhile but my HD700s finally showed up yesterday, a cursory listen (5-6 hrs) mirrored more or less yours and Mike’s impressions.
Pros: Very good imaging, staging is very speaker like, seamless tone from top to bottom, excellent clarity, midrange and tight tuneful bass.
Summary: Let me start off by say that i am not a perfectionist nor am i a totally audiophile, but rather an enthusiast (because my rig is mostly mid-fi) that never really found any need to post a headphone review, but since the HD700 has been getting mixed impressions i'd like to give my opinion, also i've...
Pros: Comfort, large soundstage, clear audio, design
Cons: Pricing, bright trebles, large redundant box
This is my 1st 5-Star Review.
I am a very picky reviewer and I am a true believer in 'every little bit counts' and honestly I have little to nothing to complaint about aside from the headphone being a little bit heavy.
Pros: Sound, build quality, price-to-performance ratio
Summary: my experience with headphones is very limited, as is this review, but i thought someone might benefit from these observations, someone who wants to listen to classical and jazz.
i started with the hd700 by listening to the melos quartet playing schubert's "death and the maiden," and then checked my...
Pros: big soundstage, precise imaging, immersive sound, clear lines from individual instruments in, e.g. chamber music or jazz quartets
Summary: I picked these beautiful-looking babies on amazon few days ago when price dropped on amazon (used ones from amazon warehouse for $400), which was a bargain; compared to $300 price tag on HD650's.
Pros: wide soundstage, clarity, good separation of instruments, eye-candy design
Cons: somewhat genre specific, performs best with classical/opera musics. (isn't this a pro??), build quality
Summary: I would like to share my experience with Sennheiser HD700 and compare them directly with AKG K701.
I bought HD700 as upgrade to my K701.
At first please note that I wrote these impressions immediately after I finished the listening of mentioned track/album.
Pros: almost perfect all-rounder, very realistic and wide sound stage, impressively detailed and very live-like sound presentation, extremely comfy
Cons: ocassional sibilance, for some electronica it lacks just a bit more subbass energy
Excerpt: A mid-range audiophile offering may sound like a clumsy stepping stone for Sennheiser between their HD 650s and HD 800 headphones, but the HD 700s are anything but. We dive into sonic sublimity with the Sennheiser HD 700 headphones in our full review.
