Great

  • Excerpt: I would say I'm somewhat of an audiophile and have a really good ear, but not all headphones are made for everyone. I also own the HD650 so to compare, the HD700 has a much wider sound stage and bass that is not as dark as the HD650.
  • Pros: Attractive Design, Durable
  • Cons: Not The Most Beautiful, Unattractive Design

Finally A Keeper

  • Summary: I have gone through many open backed headphones from Sennheiser HD 558, 600 & 650, Beyerdynamic Tesla T90 and all open DT seies headphones as well as a few Grados and HiFImans. I was looking for a fun headphone, something that with a full sound but still with a smooth response.
  • Pros: Full sound, open soundstage
  • Cons: Feel a little flimsy

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.
  • 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 ...
  • 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: 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.
  • 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...
  • Pros: big soundstage, precise imaging, immersive sound, clear lines from individual instruments in, e.g. chamber music or jazz quartets
  • Cons: rare sibilance

  • 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

Simply fantastic

TheBrainguy, Crutchfield
11 January 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased the GRADO SP500 headphones. Although they produce very accurate and warm sound the soundstage is terrible. So I made the decision to try the Sennheiser HD700. Although the Senn's are more they are worth every penny of the difference.
  • Pros: Definition Tonal Accuracy Power Bass Sound Stage Comfort Design Quality
  • Cons: They are open phones and can be heard by anyone in the room. I live alone so this is not a problem for me.

  • Summary: Intro:  I have owned this headphone for about a year now and so far so good! I have found that the HD700 is a very revealing headphone that drastically changes its sound signature from each amp//source you listen to it with.
  • Pros: Looks great, Comfy, Wide Soundstage, Great Imaging
  • Cons: 6k Treble Spike, Plastic Design, No Bass Impact
