I'd also like to point out that "Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven" is probably one of the 10 best albums ever made. No joke. And I don't agree that the AD900s sound better than the K702. It's been awhile since I've heard the K702, but my Q701 are virtually identical and completely stomp my AD900s in sound quality across the board. And I listen to metal almost exclusively.

To each his own, though, I suppose.  

Thanks!

 

Yes

 

and thanks I guess:)

Have you had a chance to hear the Q701? While they are almost identical to the K702, I do feel that they have some slight differences. Slightly more body down low, and a bit smoother up top to my ears. 

I also noticed that a lot of the listed prices are full-on retail, but many of these headphones can be found at significantly lower prices even somewhere like Amazon. Just thought I'd point that out.

Agreed...matches my experiences to a "T" as well.

I haven't yet heard the Q701

An amazing read! I'm starting to get familiar with all of the more technical aspects of headphones.
I had two questions:
Does the Sennheiser 600 leak sound like a typical open headphone?
And have you had a chance to try the Sony MDR-1?

Dave, i have a quick question, do you have flats on your HP1000, and if so, are they the TTVJ ones, or are they the new ''improved'' flats that Joe has?

When I did the review I had the ones that TTVJ sells.  I've since upgraded to the new ones that Joe sells.  There is a difference, but its very slight.  To the naked eye, and even to the touch, they appear to be the same material and same shape.  There is however a slight sonic difference.  It's a very VERY marginal difference, but I do perceive it as an improvement.  I haven't done double blind testing on this, but I feel confident in saying that while the difference is minute, the new pads are an enhancement.

Hey David,

Have you ever tried the Ultrasone HFI-2400 or Pro 2900?
If so, how do you think they compare with the AKG K701 & Sennheiser HD 650
