Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread - Page 93

post #1381 of 1969

I just got my pair. First impressions:

 

Compared to Tesla1, the space isn't as big and they don't pull me in as much.

Easier on the ears, tinnitus seems to go away?

Unbelievably comfortable!

I love the bass.

These are by no means bright to my ears.

 

Like river stream compared to T1's concert hall feel. Cool and smoothing. It's really easy to just breathe and let go.

I didn't like the T1 when I tried it but I think it's the amp combo. I think the 700s are incredibly exciting.

The T1 is the best all-rounder headphones I've ever had.

That's possibly true. They sounded flat to my ears, again due to the amp it was bundled with - not my home setup. I suspect it's a largely neutral headphone, with very good specs.

There is an amp, t1 bundle here in singapore for some 700 uSd new just FYI smily_headphones1.gif

The amps not worth jack though frown.gif

Personal preferences, but I thought the T1 just had a bit too much treble for my tastes. I also couldn't help but feel like they weren't a big enough step above the DT880 to warrant the tripling in price.

 

I don't know what it is about the HD700, but something about it just... works. It's not the most detailed, nor the most balanced, but for some reason listening to music through these things just sounds... fun. I stop caring about what my headphones sound like and just listen. It probably helps that I don't hear the treble peaks that everyone talks about. I think I just have weird ears because I heard sibilance with some cymbals with the HD650, which doesn't really make any sense, given their frequency response. After I got the HD700s, I stopped caring about neutrality this and source-matching that and was just there for the music.

Anyone else on the fence on upgrading to HD800? Now's the time: $1200 from Razordog Audio before they sell out. http://www.head-fi.org/t/692119/the-deals-discussion-thread-read-the-first-post/3060#post_10288515

The HE-500s do everything very well...everything is VERY balanced while on the other hand the HD700s come off as a more 'fun' headphone. 

 

Both are very good but I would give the HD700s a slightly better edge especially with the Bifrost uber upgrade I just installed today.


+1

 

In addition I think HD700 allows longer sessions than HD-500 due to the weight. For me the HE-500 was too heavy even for a 20min demo.

 

For a really good and fairly portable setup I can warmly recommend iBasso DX50->RSA SR71B -> balanced kobiconn -> HD700.

They are not "very warm" for sure.

The T1 is not warm. This guy is trolling. He's been trolling with every single one of his posts that's he's thrown up in the last week. Don't feed the trolls.

Haha not meaning to "feed the trolls" but am I the only one who finds the T1 flat and neutral?

No, IMO the T1s sound neutral but warm sounding doesn't mean neutral sounding.
