Strange, I'm a college student and I find the HD700's treble to be quite pleasing. A little, little bit sharp, but nothing that bothers me too much.
 Exactly what I thought too. Had to double-check the store's setup to see if I was actually amped or not  Thanks for the input!  Sweet, I'll look into seeing if I can audition them with those FiiOs. I actually don't mind the sharp treble, I'm one of those weird people that absolutely loves this headphone for it. Just me :p
Apologies for the dumb question, but I had the opportunity to give these a go in Tokyo's Akiba department store, and I was blown away by the HD700. I even got the chance to try out the HD800, T1, and W5000 and I just found myself enjoying the HD700 so, so much more than the previous 3 even though it was unamped, running straight through my HTC One. So, the question is, exactly how necessary is amping for these cans? I was already very impressed with them unamped; is buying...
Hiya, looking for an HD700 in solid condition from someone who's willing to ship to California. Price is not firm, I'm willing to negotiate depending on condition, shipping, etc.   Let me know :)
AKG K545   Things you should know before we begin: I've been a user of warmer headphones all my life, so use that for a reference point of bias. I will also be using the HD25 as my main point of comparison as they are in similar price ranges now and it was my previous gold standard for portable audio. I also tend to listen at slightly above-average volumes. In addition, I am running these unamped out of my iPhone 5S; this being marketed as a portable headphone, and I...
RockJaw Allure sounds nice.
At the airport, standing in line at the Starbucks here with my K545, spotted another guy in line with an MDR-V6.
Apologies for creating a new thread, didn't know if the "Looking for advice - post here" thread was still in service, per se. Long story short, I'm looking for a set of headphones to usa almost exclusively at home, and there aren't any places around me that offer any good sets to audition. About what I'm looking for: I've been a long-time fan of the HD25 and it has been my personal top-tier, go-to headphone for pure sound quality. It's left my M50 on the shelves, but I...

Apologies for the bump, but I've decided to give these a shot for the first time since I bought my new 5S... and I must say, I am incredibly surprised. These are nothing like the predecessor, they actually bring a solid bass impact and have a nice amount of airiness. The isolation and comfort obviously isn't there, but I'm actually thoroughly enjoying the SQ of these earbuds. I haven't A/B'd them with my SE215, but isolation aside, the performance between these two is very...
