Rawrster, I bought these because they did look a lot like AD700/900 cans, but they are actually oval as compared to round, and they sound nothing like the AD series because the bass is so much more pronounced. They also have none of the fit issues I had with the AD700 in particular as they are snug on the old noggin.
If anyone is interested in trying these all I would want to recoup is my shipping costs and the $40 they cost to buy. If you want them re-cabled, I'll have to talk with the person who cabled mine to get a price for you though. I suspect it will be around $25 but he may have just been doing me a favour when I bought mine and may actually charge a bit more than $25 to ensure all his costs are covered as well as some of his time. But I will find out if you want him to do it. He might also be willing to prep the cable and let you finish the wiring job yourself if your into DIY stuff. I'll also find out what type of cable he used if I can.
These do seem interesting and not surprisingly I'm always a sucker for a good deal. If you can get me a pair recabled I might be tempted although I do have enough stuff in my house already. How long have you had them just out of curiosity? How hard are they to drive as well.
