Some recent off-topic posts were deleted. Let's get back on-topic, guys.
 I have two pairs as well, but both are well-used by now. Keep in mind that pad compression after a year might explain at least some of the difference, especially because the other pair had no use at all.
 Sorry, guys. The production-version MDR-Z7 arrived just before I left for vacation. I took it with me, though... I was able to get some listening time with it. We're in the middle of shooting the CanJam 2014 preview video (late, because I partially lost my voice for the past few days), so I don't have the time right now to say much about it. What I will say is this: To my ears, this is Sony's best headphone in quite some time--for my preferences, perhaps their...
