I edited it a bit - yeah, it's just my opinion - I'm sure lots will disagree.
So far, I actually hear MORE detail in AD2000 - especially in bass section.
AD2000s definatly have punchier bass, unlike HD650's smooth bass.
I may let go of my K701s, because AD2000 does everything better IMO, save for classical music -I may get K501s instead.
As for transparency, AD2000 is transparent with quick decay. Perceived
transparency, however, goes in favor of K701s due it its lack of weight past mid-bass.
If you see K701 as good, accurate machine that plays out everything in its right place, I see AD2000 as becoming immensed with the music, so much more weight to every note, so emotional.http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f4/my-...ad2000-302281/
here's a small review I did earlier.
Are you thinking of purchasing a pair
