I think that is what's causing the delay on every new Sony models.  I want the MDR-Z1000.  I may just pay the high prices to get them now like I did with the XB1000.

Oh, just that American cars used to be made in America, not so much anymore. You know, Motown / Motor City, where the majority of American cars were manufactured.

 

Everything is outsourced these days, so "German" cans, from Ultrasone, to Sennheiser, or even Denon's (Japan) flagships, etc, are pretty much all made in China, like many many things.

My wife's iPad was the same way.  Too many critical components out of Japan, for it not to be an issue...

 So the XB1000 is not good for hip hop? I had the 700's and thought they were very good for hip hop, and I just bought the 1000's yesterday. I hope I didn't make a bad choice.

Not that it is not good for Hip Hop, the XB700 has more of an in your face sound that is better IMO for Rap/Hip Hop.

 So does the 1000 have deeper bass than the 700? One member said it does, but I wanted your take on it.

Indeed. I never saw myself buying one of the XB series, but the thought of what sounds like pretty linear bass that has good sub-bass AND a very large soundstage is highly appealing to me. It seems very difficult to find a a headphone that has good sub-bass and a wide soundstage, as usually the larger the soundstage/more open the headphone, the more sub-bass tends to suffer. I hope they come out sometime this summer. I've been heavily contemplating headphones like the K701 and DT880, but this actually sounds tempting enough to make me buy it instead; I just need more comparisons to higher end headphones.

D7000 has amazing bass and a very open soundstage. Give them consideration as well. Though they are above the average price for what you're looking at.

I auditioned the D7000 at a a store today through a very cheap setup and they were by far my favorite of the headphones on display despite what was likely poor amplification for all the top tier phones. But yes, they are way above my price range. Budget is under 400.

The D7000 is a GREAT headphones with good bass, but it's not the same bass as the XB1000. The XB1000 gives you good bass presure (SPL) like subwoofers that the D7000 doesn't.

The thump and SPL is the reason I want the XB1000, those 70mm drivers tell the story.
