Q701 is good. The HD558 and 598 are good. The HD600 and HD650 are even better. You can buy them used for a little bit more than $250.
IMO, the HD700 does some great things, but it also does some really bad things.The HD650 and HD600 are like fairly good looking cute girls. There's absolutely nothing wrong with them and one can be extremely content and very happy. The HD700 is kind of like a really hot chick, but with a penis.
I found this utterly funny, and a dreadful thought crossed my mind:
"Depends on the media, it could be a turn off or a turn on... Senn is making a futaphone."
Now I'm both laughing and scared at myself.
