I played around with the Annies a bit after they arrived yesterday. They are fairly comfortable and I like the velour earpads. The only thing is that it seems that I have such a massive head that the headband doesn't really give me a comfortable enough fit. It's snugh, but I feel that there is a little too much force on the top of my head. I'm glad I got these as opposed to the regular Q701s. I can't even imagine trying the bumps, my head hurts already...;)
As far as sound quality, I can't really comment on that as of yet. There did seem to be some grain on some music I listened to, but to be fair, that was using my built-in computer DAC. I'm going to at least buy a decent one (along with an aditional amp for gaming) before forming my final opinion.
