Just to butt in...yes, the creaking's only noticeable when moving the head. I daresay if you used one of those medical "haloes" to clamp your head you should have no problem at all.

The Creaking disappears after while of use and also you really don't notice it and when you have them on its not like you are gonna be moving your head alot.

Hope you enjoyed my review!
Nice review. Nice pics. Pretty much sums up my views on the AT as well. Nice open, natural detailed sound that lacks artifical "punch". The punch should be in the music, not the gear.

Just demo'd these on Saturday - I came away with a generally favorable impression. Soundstage is very nice, fun forward sound, lacking bass impact, average detail. Just didn't like all the plastic, but it's hard to find a solid magnesium headphone at that price point ... can't really complain. And the fit was very lose on my head.

There's creaking? I never heard it, even when I intentionally move my head around.

I never heard creaking on my AD700.

I do if I swivel the cups...I think. Don't have them on hand at the moment so cannot confirm this, but at one point they definately did creak. IDC though, best gaming headphones I ever tried. Keeping them just for that.

review is spot on for the ad700s, my only gripe is the slight hissing with anything with a S sound in vocals.  "unlimited" was the first word I chose in describing the stage.  Its like a dome of music over your head, it feels like its not measurable left and right.

 

It actually works better unamped with a fuze and direct to my pcs audio jack than with any of my amps.  My MKii and Cmoy BB 2.02 drive it worse than just the fuze alone or my pc.  It makes them noticeably more garbled in the lows, and there is not much change but a slight warmness due to the amping, punchyness and sparkle remain the same..  The amps bring out the highs and create massive hissing even with the high range set lower, and garbles the crap out of the bass.  No need for an amp, any normal pc can run them fine and the fuze at 90% volume and full bass sounds excellent.

AD900s weren't sibilant :)

Good to hear Mr Joboto. Have you heard the AD700 in comparison to the AD900? If so is the bass better extended. I don't have a prolem with the bass on the AD700 other than that it rolls of very quickly. Also are the upper mids/lower treble more pronounced (they are a bit trecessed on the AD700).
