OMG! What A Difference...

FirstTimeAudiophile, Crutchfield
2 January 2014
  • Summary: This is my first time buying a high-end audiophile quality headphones so I am basing my review solely on how the SD700 compares to my low to medium quality headphones of the past. I have been listening with the SD700 for about two weeks now and I have nothing but praise for these cans at this point.
  • Pros: Sounds absolutely awesome to me although I admit I am NOT an audiophile at this point and do not have experience with other high-end headphones to compare it's actual sound quality and reproduction. Build quality also seems very good and leaves me with little doubt they will last a lifetime.
  • Cons: None at this point.

Acoustically Balanced Soundstage in Your Head

INROCK, Crutchfield
10 December 2013
  • Summary: On some level, I find it presumptuous to think anybody cares to read my opinion on a set of headphones. Yet, here I am offering my experience with the Sennheiser HD 700 headphones. As a preface, I'm just a rock and pop music lover. I don't purport to be an expert on studio recording or production, and respect professional audio and audiophile journals for their knowledge and perspectives.
  • Pros: Sturdy and lightweight construction; Comfortable; Fully envelopes ears; Sound is clear, honest and intimate. For me, the HD 700 produces private music listening nirvana at a price I can afford. MY STEREO HI-FI SET-UP: Onkyo A9070 amplifier; Onkyo C7070 CD player; Technics KAB-modified audiophile SL-1210MK5 turntable with an AT 440MLa cartridge; Axiom M80 tower speakers. [NOTE: Headphones powered directly by Onkyo equipment; i.e. no separate headphone amp.]
  • Cons: None. [NOTE: The HD 700 headphones are ideal for home audio listening and appreciation, and not designed or engineered for sound isolation. My noise reduction rating acknowledges this reality. I seldom listen to music at greater than 90dB, so leaking of sound is not a problem in my household.]

  • Summary: I've used most of the old-school brands (Grado, AKG, Sennheiser, Sony, Koss, David Clark, ...) and have tried several of the Jonny-come-latelys, and the HD700s are simply the best for comfort and sound that I know.   I can wear them for hours and never get fatigued.   Most of the others that I've heard fail relative to the HD700 in terms of either wearability or audiophile sound.   I use an after-market cable that's shorter and lighter than the stock cable.
  • Pros: Comfort, light weight, spectacular sound: response and imaging
  • Cons: Not cheap

  • Summary: Introduction: 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.   Build quality: The construction of the HD700 is very similar to the HD800. Just by looking at the headphone, you might mistake one from the other.
  • Pros: Sound, build quality, price-to-performance ratio
  • Cons: Could be lighter

  • 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 impressions by playing segments on my fidelio x1.   wow!  the hd700 had what felt like a 220-240o soundstage- i was sitting in the center of the quartet.
  • Pros: big soundstage, precise imaging, immersive sound, clear lines from individual instruments in, e.g. chamber music or jazz quartets
  • Cons: rare sibilance

  • Summary: January 1st  2014     Initial impressions http://www.headfonia.com/ls-take-on-the-sennheiser-hd700/   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. As mentioned above I’m using a Bryston BCD-1 as source balanced to a BHA-1 for amplification, so no hiss, hum, you name it just a jet black back-round allowing every little nuance to come through unscathed.
  • Pros: Very good imaging, staging is very speaker like, seamless tone from top to bottom, excellent clarity, midrange and tight tuneful bass.
  • Cons: Unruly cable

  • Summary: Sennheiser HD 700   At the moment I unfortunately have no time to write a complete review. So my apologies for that but I'm going to finish this review as soon as I can                     Audio   Low pitch: 4/5 maybe not enough bass for the bass heads but for my taste just enough -and whats more important- HQ bass   Medium pitch: 5/5 absolutely stunning!
  • Pros: overall sound quality, clarity, detail, mids, soundstage and separation, extreme comfort, good cable
  • Cons: little sibilant in the beginning, some fragile parts, maybe too bright for some people

  • 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 only listened to the HD800 for around 30minutes therefore i will not compare them (c'mon guys its Sennheiser's flagship headphone for a reason).
  • Pros: Comfort, large soundstage, clear audio, design
  • Cons: Pricing, bright trebles, large redundant box
