I think the Z1000 is a bit brighter through the midrange into the treble,

and I think it has greater clarity and detail at the top.

 

The 7520's are great closed headphones

so are the Z1000's

The Z1000's have their flaws, but on the other hand they

do some things better than any closed headphone I've ever heard

They're startling at times

 

I'd hate to have to choose between these two.

Some things? Such as?

 

 

They have a coherence, a seamlessness, particularly in the mids 

up through the lower part of the treble which I've not heard in other

closed headphones.  I notice it every time I listen to them.

 

They also are superbly detailed without any harshness; a very neat

combination that's tricky to achieve.

I notice a very similar thing on my 7509HD's. Although the graph looks terrible from the perspective that flatter is better (something which, it's becoming increasingly clear, probably doesn't apply to HP's), the similarity might well account for what we hear.

Your wait is now over:

The 7520 are freakin awesome. :atsmile: My opinion of them will never change. In fact I plan on rebuying them in the future. I recently sold off a lot of gear to try new things like the K812 and Sig Pros. It's a sickness an addiction. Give my baby a good home Matt!

Yup. It's an expensive hobby. Thankfully, I'm so happy with my 7520 that I think I'll be content for the next several years. I only need to find a somewhat permanent solution to the creaking. Will try that lithium grease someone was talking about, if I can find it.

I find them a bit dark and closed-in sounding, yet with an emphasis on sibilants. But they have a very tight and musical sound, no doubt about that.

Many here have confirmed there is definitely a break-in period with this headphone. I personally noticed the bass to mellow a little bit over time and the highs to become a bit more relaxed. But if you're listening to a badly mastered recording, this headphone will not smooth it over, you will hear every flaw.

Wondering if this is recording or setup dependent as sibilant would be the last word I'd use to describe their signature, contrary I've found their treble quite subdued out of the box but it cut through after more than a week just fine, still very mellow (relatively). I can go up in volume significantly before treble starts bothering, almost like LCD-2 when I had them.

Bass gets more civilized as well, give them some time.

+1 (My thoughts exactly)

 

*Although... I've talked to a couple of people who found the treble bothersome, so it might be an ear canal shape thing.
