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
Glad the hear that... at this rate I could have purchased the much praised HD800. After testing the different pairs, I'm very impressed by the budget Q701, I'm really looking forward to the K712. I'll have them Tuesday thanks to Prime... will definitely post back with impressions.
I love the material of the X1's cushions... I'm hoping the K712's or Annie's have a similar feel to them. I wasn't floored by the sound, the Q701's definitely sound better to me. I mean, they do sound great... really nice in fact... but just muffled, more like closed back. The bass seemed to muddy it up a bit too. But I continue to like them. I tested the HD650 too... wasn't impressed. For $415, they're going back.
