Yeah. That was... an interesting response. Also, the bass isn't as audible a difference? Dude, you tell me about how different cables sound but can't hear how big a jump in bass it is?
The bass is similar sounding on either pad, however, the bass is more emphasized to the point it's as forward, if not more so than the mids. The Q701's bass might sound similar, but it takes a back seat to the mids. Also, put on some bassy music, the difference will be quite obvious.
Give it time, either way. Look at Chico's response after he spent two weeks with the Annies alone.
Go back to the Q701 pads after two weeks.
But yes, your Q701 was still a bit brighter than my Annies, so that's also a factor here.
Still, I'm sure you'll come around. You own the HD650, so the ANnie pads should put your Q701 in between the two, sonically.Edited by Mad Lust Envy - 3/18/13 at 4:03pm
