|soozieq, would you mind saying a bit more about isolation and microphonics? Is isolation on par with other canalphones like the CX300, or does the ported design of the ATH-C700 reduce it even further? Is music drowned out by the sounds of the trains/planes/buses you mentioned, or do the C700s still afford enough isolation to enjoy each part of the frequency spectrum?|
|The cord/earpiece design seems to suggest that over-the-ear looping is not really possible (at least not sustainably so) -- Can you in fact loop the cords over your ears without them slipping off? If not, how microphonic do you find them when worn hanging straight down while you're in motion?|
|Also, my stock question: Do you find them at all harsh or sibilant?|
The only concern I can see, is that the filters could get clogged quite easily and I can't see how to clean them. One of the reviewers said he used to stick a pin in his Sony filters when they got clogged, but he didn't really want to do that with an expensive set of headphones. For the moment I'm making sure not to throw them anywhere dusty until I figure out how to clean the nozzles.
Re: pics. I'll try, but I still haven't managed to upload a photo on here yet that was bigger than a small spider (although some kind forum member has been guiding me through it!). Once I figure it out, I'll post some pics.
