I didn't really hear sibilance on the K240, so I didn't mention it.

Odd, they have as much sibilance as the DT 990 Pro to me, a little bit of EQ tames the spike.

The K712 doesn't change the soundstage too much.  I think it will still be oval shaped.  I can't remember the AD700s soundstage depth.  I thought the MA900 was oval shaped too.  Depth is tricky to pull of.  The T1s and HD800s had nice depth tongue.gif

Chico (or any new K712Pro owners),

 

Great review/impressions of the K712 and very much appreciated.  Well, actually you guys are constantly making me look for the next best thing so not so appreciated....Damn Head-Fi! LOL.

My question actually concerns the competitive gaming prowess of the K712.  I currently own the D7000 for single player and movies and the Annie for online multi-player so would the K712 or even the Sony Ma900 improve on the competitive performance of the Annie (since I recall you mention the improved soundstage, albeit w/ less air)?  It seems that they may not see much benefit from the Annie but, wanted some first hand knowledge before curiosity gets the better of me.

Going from the Anniversary to the K712 just for multiplayer gaming won't be worth it.  Any changes will be too subtle for that.  Same with the MA900s, except IMO they're a minor step down from the Anniversary, so I wouldn't go that route if you already have the Anniversary.

 

You could stick angled pads on the Anniversaries which which will make it better for sound whoring.

K712 sounds different from K702.

I love the Stax, but I can't afford any. And if I were ever to get one, I want the SR-007. Of course, the SR-009 would be a dream come true.

So I got the K-702 Annies. THEY ARE AMAZING.... They blow away my ****ty dr dre beat Mixrs. I have only worn them for an hour, but you barely feel like they are on. Which is especially good since I wear glasses.

 

The only purchase I am not sure of so far is the KEF M200 Hi-Fi Earphones

 
 
Has anyone used these? I am can't tell  the difference between this and the Iphone 5. These are harder to wear and keep on coming out of my ear. Should I push it into my canal deeply? Or am I just using them wrong? I connected them to my phone and kindle and they feel slightly under-powered. 
 
Was hoping these would be better for gym, walking the city, etc

Glad the Annie is working out for you. I love them... a LOT.

As for the KEF... I can't ever justify spending so much on IEMs. That's what my Koss clip ons are for, and they're stellar, and cheap.

Was hoping the Yuin G1A would blow them away, but they were less musical than I wanted, though they were quite a bit more refined. The bass was rough though. It was grainy, and crackled.

I would totally buy another high end clip on....if someone actually made them.

I was close to buying the iGrado, but I thought they'd probably not fit my head, and I heard it's not comfy.
