I feel a little guilty, but I'm indecisive, and I did ask a rep before ordering whether or not there would be a problem with me ordering a few sets, trying them, and returning the ones I wasn't happy with... the rep said no problem. Hassle free return if I'm not satisfied.
I think ordering the 712's is best though... while I still have my Q701's I can both test the 712's on their own, and try their pads on the Q701.
edit: I may also keep the Fidelio X1's... I'm not sure, something I like about them... I love the build quality and comfort. Sound is a little muffled for me though.
Oh, it'll hold. I've returned many more than 5 pairs of headphones... although, I'd spread them out a bit better in the future and give them other means of business.
Besides, Amazon is knocking out smaller businesses left and right. They're obligated to give buyers the benefit of the doubt, and deserve the fallout of returns.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the two when you have them both. I'm certain you'll appreciate the added benefits the K712 brings to the table. I'm banking on you'll like the sound better too!
BTW, I think the Annie is much more comfortable than the X1, but think the X1 beats the Q701 in that same regard. Personally for sound, I'd say: Annie > Q701 >>> X1
