Their paint skills are phenomenal. Their communication skills however, are not. I didn't even get an apology for the delay, just a bump to overnight shipping (woo, a $25 value on $1500 headphones) and a "thank you for your patience." Heck, I've had better communication from Amazon over a $15 DVD than I did from Colorware.

No way! Check the icon - it's my favorite color scheme. Green-Yellow-Black.

Ha ha ha.  I waited for 5 weeks then they shipped mine.  I was cool with it..  I'll buy from them again, knowing it will take about 2 months. 

 

Hope they get the HD7000biggrin.gif

The time wasn't the issue, it was the complete lack of communication on their part. I always had to contact them, only to be told of delays with my order and very generic ETAs meant to placate me. I don't mind waiting if the vendor keeps me updated. tongue.gif

I'm really thinking about sending back my HD700 and selling the HD650 to buy the HD800.  Not that I don't like the HD700, it's just... that I love it so much that I really want to hear the HD800.  My only fear is the bass.  If the HD800 comes close to the amount of bass the HD700 has then I'll be fine with it.

The HD700 has good bass?

Yes!  To me it does.  It's not a planar type bass but it's better than the HD650's bass to me.  Very fast and detailed with just the right amount of punch.

I thought it did when I coaxed a pair out of Sennheiser at PAX East last year. Admittedly, a show floor that size isn't a good demo environment, but they were demoing the HD800s with some hip-hop and bass-heavy rap, and both the HD 700 and HD 800 put out a good amount.  I preferred the fit and finish of the HD 800 though, especially how I could still clearly make out the music despite the noisy show floor.

Damnit Gosh darn it! My family thought the same thing, too, when I showed them my Colorware samples.  My brother, being a Packers fan, pointed out the scheme as well.

 

1) I'm not a football fan, so no, they're not Packers HD 800s :P

2) I'm not a John Deere fan, so no, they're not John Deere HD 800s :P

 

I just like the Green-Yellow-Black color scheme, is all! Though I guess I should complete the ensemble with a green tee shirt and green striped overshirt before PAX East starts.  Be the Sennheiser Green Meanie!

Sounds good to me.  I expect the HD800 to reach deeper and have even more detail in the bass.  Now if I can bring myself to actually box these back up, they sound too good.

 

I've always liked the green and black of the car in Bullitt.  Almost bought one of these but ended up with a yellow and black one... ugh what was I thinking.

I'll probably get banned for saying this, but I've never seen Bullitt.

Neither has my four year old, but I have only have myself to blame for that. You on the other hand... have no excuse.
