The only way I think someone could not like these is if they are used to $500 hp's or they are a basshead.

I debated getting these for a month because of my smaller head. I'm glad I got them. I wear a 7 1/4 size hat and while they are not snug, they are great for sitting at my desk. Wish I would have bought these first. I coulda saved a little money. Has anyone paired these with a udac?
I've had mine for a few months now, and MAN DO I LOVE THEM. Their comfort, of course, can't be missed (or should I say, can't be noticed, since I forget about them while watching a movie?).
I listen to 95% classical music, and the soundstage and separation of instruments is incredible. While they may seem lacking in bass to some, for me, this is perfectly fine. I do miss some resonance of the lower instruments (string bass, organ), but I hear them fine.
Two weeks ago, I acquired a NuForce uDAC and with the AD700, it's a match made in heaven. the uDAC has a warm sound signature, and when paired with the AD700, gives it the bit of oomph and warmth that it lacks. Everything is still detailed and crisp, but there's just a fullness to the sound that I didn't have before.
So anyways, there's my love affair with the AD700. I got a pair of M50s a few months after the AD700s, thinking that the sound signature would be the same, but the M50s come off as abit too bassy for my liking, although my friends all prefer it to the AD700.
