Woo and HD800's can I be your long lost brother from another mother? biggrin.gif
One of these days for sure!

In the meantime I'd settle for the "Big Neutral Trifecta", the DT880's which I own, add an HD600 and a K701. That would cover the neutral bases perfectly.

But if I had MIKELAP's money it would be Audeze for the endgame. biggrin.gif

Being in MN really is like living in lower Canada lol... I bet a few of us could help satisfy your need to demo some AKG's and Senn's.

Thanks for the offer, very much appreciated.

New Prague is 3400 km's away from me and MIKELAP is 1200... I could probably talk the wife into a trip to Montreal... But Minneapolis might be stretching it a bit far... Now she has some quilting friends in Des Moines... Nah it would never fly. biggrin.gif

End of the month, the Audio Show in Montreal. Woo and Audeze will both be there and you need to hear how amazing the Woo WA2 can be paired with Ortho's.

LCD-3's, X's or XC's... The lure is strong, like a sirens sweet song! biggrin.gif

I have had them on my head for less than an hour, but first impressions, these are crazy good. :) 

The pads appear to be velour, not leather. While I never thought my HE 300 were uncomfortable, these are considerably more comfortable. The HD 700s are little smaller and lighter than the HD 800, but my impression is they have a very similar fit and feel.

Hi Gibosi,

 

Congratulations on the HD700 headphones!

 

Way back I had a pair of HD600 but I could not wear them for a long time - too hot and not comfortable for me. Bought a pair of Audio Technica ATH-AD700 that are very comfortable. However, the sound and resolution is better from my inexpensive Polk speakers.

 

Any suggestions for very good sounding, comfortable headphones in a low price range?

Mordy, it depends on what kinda sound your after... Do u want something laid back or aggressive? What kinda eq profile? (airy dry or lush and euphoric) and how cheap is cheap?

cans I usually recommend around $200 would include...



k/q7xx
ad900x
dt880
hd598

and they are all pretty comfy!

Is the DT990 Pro worth $135.00?

They are worth it if you want a v shaped sound... They are super fun and pretty detailed... I kinda miss mine lol

the 880 uses the same basic driver... The difference between the 2 is the housing and dome foam. I'd look at 880's because u can easily remove the foam and basically have the 990.
