Hi there, currently I own an HD 598, paired with Apple ipod nano 6th gen, HRT istreamer and Schiit Asgard. I'm very satisfied so far with this combo, but I'm looking for an headphone upgrade with eventually more resolution, more bass extension and even wider soundstage (HD 598 having already a big soundstage).
I was leaning toward Senn HD 700 but I'm a bit concerned after all the negative impressions I read in this forum: too bad I cannot have any chance to audition them before purchase.
I'm looking for an advice mainly from someone who has/had both hd 598 and hd 700, even better if matched with Asgard: I need to know if HD 700 is a consistent upgrade with regard to HD598. I'm considering also HD 650 as cheaper option, but I really don't know if I can appreciate its signature, very different from HD 598.
The musical genres I listen to are mostly soundtracks, rock, pop and classical.
