I have demoed the HD 598, I have owned the very similar HD 555 and I own the HD 700 so I can share some thoughts and impressions on a comparison of those models. In simplistic terms, the HD 700 is a substantial upgrade over the HD 555 and HD 598 in dynamism, soundstaging, detail and tonality. Contrast the HD 700 with the HD 5xx series which is very midcentric, wooly and boxy sounding. Whether I am listening to pop music or live concerts, the HD 5xx series sounds very much...
 
Spot-on summary: fun, smooth, detailed, unexaggerated. I do not have an HD 650 in my possession, but based on my memory of it, the T5 might even be more fun than the HD 650. It is probably on account of the better deep bass on the T5. It reaches to the bottom effortlessly and I can feel and hear the lowest octave on sounds like there is a built-in subwoofer. Not a noisy, boomy one, mind you, but a tight and detailed one. This is some of the best fun and detailed bass I...
  Funny you should ask. I have the Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2 Soundtrack album on my computer, so I am giving it a whirl.

The main tones of higher tones sound so good, like that hum you hear the transitioning higher tone in the right channel at 0:55. And the lower tones have the perfect momentum and depth as well, with physical tactility to the eardrums down to the...
Nope, just the T5... for now. ;)  Yes, I was guessing from your graphs the T5 would sound like this and, as it turns out, the T5 very much do. I could find myself using these everyday as my on-the-go pair. Yes, it is slightly warm but it is not veiled... at all. I believe it so because I have tracks I run specifically to test treble texture and volume, and the T5 does very, very well with them. In one track I use, the synth tones I know very well sounded very evenly...
I am just minutes into receiving my review sample of the TITAN 5 and my initial impressions are quite positive! TITAN 5 is not my usual sound preference of choice but, oh, how ravishingly rich while also articulate and quite cohesive. Although I would say the TITAN 1 has the most exciting and open sound of the TITAN family, the TITAN 5 is by far the most inviting and enjoyable of the bunch with the most natural midrange I have heard yet out of DUNU's entire TITAN lineup....
