So I got HD700 about 5 hours ago and didn't put them down from my head yet and have urge to share some of my initial impressions :)
I'am not some audio pro, but I had quite a few headphones already and now I guess my taste for sound is somehow screwed up :D because ... I love these since the first song I heard and damn I'am running them straight from pc soundcard without anything.
Not sure what's the main reason that these headphones got me that much, probably combination of fast,full of treble,forward sound, tight bass and great mids.
Have no idea why these cans got so terrible reputation and reviews, can't wait to hear them amped. Also read many times they suck with metal, well I don't think so. New album of Five Finger Death Punch - The Wrong Side Of Heaven is absolute blast on these ! Or Ex Deo - I, Caligvla ... just perfect.
Comfort - 11/10 - What more could somebody want, these are light fit me perfectly and I don't even know I'am wearing headphones in few minutes.
As for hot treble, maybe it is, maybe it isn't. It depends on taste in my opinion, but I like it. Oh and they are definitely not bass light :)
It looks like I got keeper.
I cannot agree with you more!
