I don't know what it is :X But, that SE-450 driver looks quite different from the Monitor 10-IIs. Intriguing.  I should be able to post pictures of a Toshiba HR-810's drivers relatively soon.

1: AKG Q701 and Sennheiser HD250 Linear II: Too close to call. Equally technically capable, Qs are a bit more natural but have bass roll off and upper midrange hiss, Linear II has better extension in both directions but can sound way too bright and bassy. Both have huge, intricate soundstaging and are very fast and clean. HD250 isolates like crazy. Q701 is prettier and feels nicer in the hands.   2: Pioneer Monitor 10-II: There are some really nasty cup resonations going...
This can happen with any headphone. The REAL test is how your other headphones sound after using it for a good, extended period of time. If you do this and find yourself wanting to go back to the MDR-Z7, you should probably hold onto it. If your other headphones immediately sound better than it, and continue to do so, you should probably move on. 
These will not give the bloat, bloom, or slam that bassheads like. Get an SZ2000 if you want a high quality basshead headphone.
The TH600 has much more treble and most people will probably prefer it. I find the TH600's treble disgusting and would rather have none (or close to none) than what it offers. The MDR-Z7 has a better presentation and is more comfortable. It's also built better. Otherwise, the TH600 is superior "technically". Both are slaughtered by a 32 year old supra aural in every imaginable aspect except comfort. This is my problem with them; form is given priority and function takes...
Honestly, these have their place on the market right now, I'd take them over the TH600 in all aspects (build, sound, comfort), at $50-100 less.    I was just massively disappointed that they couldn't even match their grandfather, let alone fix its problems. I was hoping these would help Sony would pull themselves out of the recent hole they've dug themselves into and spark another era of excellence from them. But alas, it is not to be. Maybe they'll do something amazing...
nay if you're me or byrnie
I would not advise you to do either of those if you want "quality" bass. The SZ2000 is too muddy for audiophiles and the Pro 900 will give you hearing damage because of its ridiculously aggressive treble. The best bass I've heard so far was from a Sennheiser HD250 Linear II. Unmatched tightness and control while still maintaining the capability to pound your skull to oblivion. They don't go for very much either. Unfortunately, they're very hard to find. Another option is a...
they felt like protein leather to me but Im not 100% positive
