That is almost the opposite problem to the sound that I have. I find the treble just perfect. I much prefer to have great treble and mid range and bass that is a little weak rather than slightly messed up mid range and treble with good bass.

Just finished a cosmetic/removable cable mod. on my ATH-AD700s.  Turned out pretty nice if I don't say so myself.

What cable do you use now? I thought the quality of the cable on these is about the best I have come across.

 

I have had my AD700s for over 3 years now. This thread hardly gets any posts so I never know If I would get a reply. I still love the sound of the AD700s. I don't know what other headphones will sound very similar to these but just have a little more bass. I don't want to loose any of that bright sounding treble because that is what I like most about them.

I just re-terminated the original cable which was pretty straight forward.

I just don't know what to get next if mine ever give up. I haven't heard better treble on any other headphones or speakers. I like the really clear midrange too. Bass is noticeable but it isn't very powerful.

I always want to try and listen to these gain but my DT770s win every time, I can stand the lack of bass. I've looked for mods but all I can find usually is people painting them or adding mics. I want SQ mods....bass mods specifically. anyone have any ideas? I know the bass is there its just in the current configuration its nearly impossible to hear.

There was a mid involving taking some foam out of the earpads but i don't remember how was it done. Maybe you could search for it but i'm nota sure

I must just be used to bass light headphones because I can easily hear the bass in these. It is deep, but very lightweight. There are very few songs that I can't follow the bass lines on even when the AD700s are on flat. I would like quite a lot more bass that these have but not a huge amount more. I find the treble just perfect and I wouldn't want it to change at all. If I had any less treble, I would feel like I am missing something. Maybe if I got used to more bass, I could find these more lacking. I just don't understand how the bass is nearly impossible to hear. When I listen to my 2.1 stereo, that has a huge amount more bass but the bass on the AD700s is still definitely noticeable.

Anyone know of DT-880/990 like headphone pads that could be used with the AD700 headphone to make them more comfortable?

K702 earpads and use double-sided adhesive tape to stick them on.
