I have a pair of M100's already. Leaning towards the HD700 at the moment, since I know Sennheiser usually keep the small headed in mind. I've never had a problem with Senns before.

These aren't larger than the say, HD 650, right?

Still nervous about whether or not the E17 can drive them properly. 

What's nice about the D7100 is that they're so easy to drive.

I don't believe they're bigger fit-wise. 150ohm isn't that hard to drive. Most amps should be able to do it no problem.

Hm, going with the HD700's then. Thanks for the help. Are they so open that I'll hear everything straight through when music is on?

(I've never owned an open can.)

A little worried if the clamping force will be enough for my small head. Guess I'll have to wait and see or see if they have an audition unit somewhere in Sweden. 

Thanks again.

You've heard both?

You mostly hear other things around you with the 700s but it will be slightly quieter.

The 700 is awesome fit, comfort and clamp should be ideal for you.

You will hear everything around you, as they are truly very open, but with music playing you'll be fine unless you're in a very noisy area. I personally loved them and out of a good vintage amp the bass was way better than I expected.

Oh, so they're good for small heads then? That's how I interpreted what you said at least. :) 

Well, I'm only going to wear them at home, so not very noisy but my neighbours play loud music sometimes, not sure if that'll be a problem.

I have the M100's if I'm in a superbass mood but I rarely am. Lack of bass would be a problem though, but that's not what I've head about the HD 700. I'm going to a store in an hour to see if I can audition them, not sure if they're keen on opening the box just for me to try the fit though.

 

Edit: Went to try them but they were all out. Got to try the 598, 518 and the 650 and they all fit nicely so I think I'll gamble on the chance that the HD700 will fit as well, thanks again for all your help. :)

I have been using D7100 for over 500 hours and it satisfies my taste right now. Solid lows and bright highs. Although I think mid is not enough for me on Jazz.

I think mids are recessed like th900.
I prefer d7000 over both th900/d7100.

You might want to look into picking up a pair of the D600's. I like them a lot for Jazz and the mids are good -- probably because the bass isn't as elevated as the D7100s. I got mine on clearance at BestBuy for $150; should be able to pick them up for around that in the For Sale Thread or on Ebay -- a great value at that price!

The graphs from HeadRoom seem to confirm what you're hearing.

This depends on how much deep bass that is in the music. I find if i listen to music with little low end bass - it is a great headphone - airy, delicte and the miods are great. But when the bass kicks in, I have to turn down the volume, necessarily leaving the mids less dominant... Problem with these cans is that they have a subwoofer kicking in beliw 50 hz or something (seems to correspond to the graph) But except that, I have grown to become a big fan of these. Just not with all tracks..
