FYI, my own D7000 and HD700 graphs look different, especially in the bass.


Red = Denon D7000 (which is actually less bassy than D5000)
Green = HD700



I see...damn english biggrin.gif

and d7000 has spikes quite like the hd700

in addition i would say that in my case treble peaks are more controllable with a good vst equalizer for foobar

a lack of body, dynamics , sluggishness and many other flaws are difficult to fix

LFF and I would like to apologize to you for making you exercise unnecessary care and caution in your selection of the HD700 as your cans of choice. Obviously, we caused you a lot of harm. As far as our HD700 review causing you to nearly not bother trying the HD700 when you had the opportunity, I call BS on that, because it would have been really dumb for you to not to try it, even for 2 seconds - no review trumps hands on experience.

I had a chance to hear the 700 and thought it sounded really lousy.  Meet conditions and all, but still....

I have a HD700 for 1 month now, and i can tell that it's a great headphone (i am an owner of HD600, H650V2, HE-5, Beyer 770/880 and T1). The trebles are not a problem with an appropriate amplification. It's a good mix between HD650 and HD800, on the warm side.

The HD700 is definitely better than the HD6X0.

Some sites allow MOT's or dealers to voice their opinions as long as they include their financial/filial interests, others don't allow them to participate at all.  Head-Fi has a sort of middle ground where they can participate but in a very limited fashion.  They can no longer say something just as "them", as they always represent their company.  

 

This is my understanding of the situation.

 

Historically, MOTs aren't allowed to post either, unless it's a direct response to a question.

Looks like LFF couldn't even speak his mind in the mildest manner possible-- his post got nuked.

Yeah...

 

I like Sennheiser. I like and appreciate Head-Fi.

 

I think the HD600 and HD650 sound great. I recommend those headphones often.

I think my HD700s are defective -__-.

 

Static keeps occurring on the left side. Tried switching the plugs but same issue occurs.

 

I'm using the Schiit Lyr as my amp and my HE-500s don't have any static so I don't think it's my amp.

 

Has this ever occurred with anyone else?

Just picked up a pair!

They should be here by next week, Deo volente.

Would the Sony PHA-3 serve as a good portable DAC headphone amp for iOS devices and laptops when using the HD 700?

They should have been called the Flagship HD Mini Me.

I've had this on my head for, what, a month now, after passing by T90's and other phones etc.. (I did have them in the past)

 

Now, they say this 'phone can sound good out of many amps, and this is largely true I think..

 

I tried it with the following before purchase:-

 

Burson Soloist

Woo WA6

Schiit Lyr

Schiit Valhalla 2

Burson Conductor SL

Matrix M-Stage

Sennheiser HDVA600

 

What did I buy?

 

HDVA600. 

 

What would have been my second choice?

 

M-Stage.

 

 

The Bursons/Schiits/Woo were all ok. Nothing special at all.. either too sharp (Burson/Schiit) or too mellow (WA6)

 

Both the HDVA600 and the cheapest amp, the M-Stage pasted them. Really.

 

Senns own amp brings out the best in these phones, by a loooonnnnnnnggg shot. It ticks all the audiophile boxes AND entertaining the casual listener. My HDVA is driven by a Matrix Mini I Pro, (this PASTES the Conductor SL, and for the record, I don't care what chip is in it. It's not that good), with Mogami XLR's into the amp. Can't wait for the balanced cable in a fortnight:) I think any listener wanting to hear what these phones are capable of, should grab a HDVA. Other amps don't match as well, or do the phones justice. If you still hate them, then fair play, the HD700 is NOT for you!!!!!

The Burson amps never impressed me at all.

My favorite solid state amps have been the Lehmann BCL and Beta22 so far.
