People will disagree but don't get Senns for female vocals, my old HD650, with the same amplification, do not come near to AKG K 701 in terms of classical and female vocals 
I don't think the technicians at Sennheiser were thinking along the same lines as those who think that an amp will absolutely change the veil factor or their laid -backness. When I owned my pair, I used them with different amps (powerful portables, tube and SS) and none of them changed their sound signature. They gave the HD650 different flavors in different genres but amps are not designed (I am ready to be corrected) to change the sound signatures that the headphone...
I am with you on all points except for HD650. No Sennheiser can beat HD800 in terms of aesthetics :)   
Although I perceive notable differences after burning headphones in, no headphone will turn into an "awesome" phone from a "trashy" one after burn-in. To me, it seems like we're hoping too much from that burn-in process. What matters is the sound signature and that will not change, no matter how much burn-in applied on a particular phone. I don't think a phone should require a 1000 hour burn-in process. If after the, say, 100 hours, you still don't like the K701s, I...
I am now listening to D7000 with M-Stage and loving the combo. They have the best bass I've ever heard in a full size can. Not boomy, bloated or anything of that sort. Actually, I am now listening to Victor Wooten and D7000 are giving me a pleasure with this album I've never had with any other headphone. 
I am using my new K 701s with M-Stage for about a week now. I switched from HD650 to AKGs. I am sure Senn boys will tell me that I've made a mistake but so far I am really enjoying the classical and jazz I've listened to with K 701s. I've tried them with progressive rock and other genres like that and preferred my AH-D7000. From the first day, they have never blown me away but the more I listen to them, the more I get used to them. First of all, their soundstage is...
1) HD800 2)Audez'e LCD-2 3) AKG K 701  4) Grado RS-1i  5) Denon AH-D7000
Well if we approach everything like that, this forum would be meaningless. We're just sharing our opinions and in the final analysis confirm the saying that "we all hear differently". There are,  I am sure, many factors which make or do not make HD650s dull or boring, we haven't discussed them yet either. However, I've done lots of reading before I bought my pair and you're the only person I've encountered who finds them too bright. Granted we all have different tastes...
I've owned Grados, Sennheiser HD555 and HD 650, but sold all of them. Now I have Denon D7000 and K 701. I am trying to get used to the sound signature of K 701 and will decide later if I want to keep it or not. But one thing about the HD650... They are just... dull and boring... No one should say they are neutral because they are certainly not... Grados are too bright for my taste, that's for sure and as I am listening to Bach's Cantatas through K 701 right now, I can...
I bought mine from ebay from the seller service-and-sales for $258. Cheaper than amazon and they were delivered in 2 days. Very fast
