Thanks for the great thread, guys 'n gals, good stuff.
I find the mids a tad recessed; and the treble while a little bright for my taste is wonderfully well refined; bass seems a bit too mid-bass boosted but it's fairly tight and well extended. I prefer the HP50, but the P7 has some fun and excitement that the HP50 doesn't have.
Actually, my biggest problem with these cans is the ear pads. They seem a bit too stiff and apply pressure too strongly where they touch. I think the problem is not using memory foam, so they're always trying to hold their own shape. As some have said, this may settle down a bit over time. The bigger problem for me is that the plate at the bottom of the pad that holds the magnets is about 1/4 inch thick and forms a shallow well at the bottom of the ear cup, and creates a little step in the well. My ears touch the corner of this plate and becomes uncomfortable after a while.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Review will be up by/on Monday.
Thanks for sharing! Personally I'm not bothered by any excessive mid bass boost on the P7, I find the bass (while a tad stronger than neutral) very even and tight with minimal intrusion into the mids. But I look forward to your review!
Oh and the pressure WILL loosen up. My P7 clamped uncomfortably the first hour, and now after maybe a month of use the headphone is really, really comfortable on my less-than-huge head.
