The Q701 doesnt have the upper mids issue that the K70x series has, though.

Uh, maybe if the driver is tensioned differently... which would make it sound wildly different.
A vintage guy I see. Good luck with the K1000. 
The SR-X MKIII I have works fine, too. You just have to be gentle with any high end headphone, really, regardless of what drive technology it uses. Take good care of your things and they'll last forever.
Very interesting, I can't seem to find it again. I noticed it a while ago on these forums but the search isn't turning anything up. He drew a trace on the foil with a sharpie, glued it to the plastic, then melted it off with trace etcher. He made two of them and made a headphone out of it...
Sennheiser hasn't produced a planar in their entire history of Hi-Fi. "Isodynamics", "Planar-magnetics", and "orthodynamics" were first being designed around the late 60's - early 70's.
