I am going to pull the trigger on the HD700 and the dekstop amp of headroom, taking advance of 10% discount.
Can you please let me know your opinion on this combo.
No idea about the amp, but the phones are good. Flawed, but good.
Mids are lacking a bit. But a little EQ helps.
They can get pretty bright on some tracks, not all, but a hotspot is there.
Otherwise they are pretty fun. Nice bass, mostly good treble. Very comfy.
I would try before you buy though. No matter what anyone says.
I recommend that you try them. It's just a matter of time before they are available in your area.
Electronic sounds good to me. So do most genres, but some tunes show the treble peak. And sometimes the mids feel distant.
I won't recommend you buy a $1,000 headphone you haven't heard. We might like the exact same music, but not the same headphones. What I do recommend is that you wait, and find a way to try them, or buy from a dealer with a good return policy. That's all I can recommend.
Consider planar magnetic cans also, if you are looking for ultimate electronic music experience. I'm fairly sure Hifiman headphones are available in retailers in Taiwan, which you can demo.
Depending on the exact genre within 'Electronic' I honestly would prefer a closed can to almost any open one.
I recently sold my LCD 2 because it wasn't as good as my HD800 (for genres like Rock) and not as 'fun' for Electro (and the heavier EDM stuff in general) as a good closed can like the D7000.
It all really depends on what genres you like.
C'mod dudes. We need more real impresions to counteract the other HD700 thread with all it's negativity.
How can you guys dismiss the other thread? The problems they mention are experienced by many, not just one or two people.
I also really wanted these to be great headphones, but it turns out they're a big let down.
