It's sad he passed away, he really was a different character in many ways in this line of business.But so far the shop is still open, I did visit there today, so you could still have made a visit. Too bad you ended up with an amplifier you have to argue with yourself about the quality of it's sound!The noise/hiss is an issue with this stated in several reviews.Good luck anyway, hope you stay satisfied.
The room inside the pads, to accommodate your ears sticking more out, is much deeper on the L700 than on the 507. So if this is your issue, the L700 is better.
Which is more comfortable, would be a personal preference.I have a big head, big ears, sometimes felt in the beginning my ears touched the inside of the pads of the 507.Now it does not bother me.The L700 I have not used that much, and is already "trained" to not be bothered if my ears should touch the pads.The L700 did feel "lighter" to wear when I first started using them.
I have both the 507 and the L700 here now, both connected in parallel to my T1, have not had much time listening yet.I own the 507, have borrowed the L700, but I would not spend the extra money for upgrade to the L700 permanent.The L700 does have a higher output compared to the 507, noticeable so.The L700 is also brighter, but this can be equalized to get more even, if necessary.Hall ambiance, stereo width, resolution between these two are not very different.Unequalized...
The little reviews there is shows complaining about hiss. That is not good. I have a set of Shure E5c, and they do hiss with any poor functioning amplifier. LaRocco, Ray Samuels and Xin portable amplifiers, either run on battery or on grid power, does not hiss at all. But if you can easily access and try out, do that.
Sorry, I have no experience with this one.
Do not wait too long to visit Lyric HiFi. There is opening hours every day now, one man mostly taking care of customers. You can try calling the shop if they are open, just for reassurance. The other shops are all well manned, have a lot of headphones and some amplifiers available. As well as DACs, and players. Oslo HiFi Center is the "Oslo HiFi asylum" from the well known Øystein Sunde lyrics! There they have the more expensive and exotic items!
Etymotic ER-4P is for connecting to a player/phone directly. It has more bass, a little cut-off in the treble, but you do not notice when using outside! I have the old line of Shure E3, E4, E5, SE420, had the E500 (but that one failed completely!). The E3 is my favorite using with my phone (an old Samsung Galaxy 3 ). The other ones are better connected to better amplified sources/players. The E500 was never my favorite connected to any source. So your preference and...
You do not have to "arrange" anything, just bring your music source, necessary cables, headphone etc. Go there in the middle of the week, not so many customers. And all these shops let you sit down and try out if you ask.

Lyric HiFi is not there on the map, just outside of the map border, still within walking distance.   https://www.google.no/search?q=oslo++stereo+butikker&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-b&gfe_rd=cr&ei=PAfcV86oOJHEYIXjh5AB#q=lyric+hifi
