    Sennheiser HD 700 Impressions Thread

    I use the 1.2m version of that cable and there's no difference in sound quality to me.   The build quality doesn't bother me either, the braided bit is nice and I don't mind the rubber.   Amazon US and UK sell the same cable and it has 5 star reviews.

    Sennheiser outlet had them at a reduced price then you could use a 35% discount code to further reduce the price. Just wish they had the 800's on would of got them for around £400.

    I got the 700's for a ridiculously low price of £200. To me they don't feel anywhere close to being worth what their original RRP was and the HD800's seem overpriced as well.   HD900 pricing if they ever bring such a headphone out will have a ridiculous price tag.

    What's the next logical upgrade step from HD700's? I need a goal to aim towards for the future.

      Well the 800's are 300 ohm and from what I've read the O2 works best with 150 ohm headphones.   Isn't it well regarded that to get the best from 800's you need to spend a lot on an amp/dac anyway?

    Been listening to the 700's now for a few hours with the O2/ODAC and I'm loving it :)

    International shipping can take weeks then I can get stung by customs charges.   I was actually going to order the Schiit Modi2/Vali combo but the Vali was out of stock from the UK supplier and they replied to an email saying it won't be back in stock for weeks.   I'm disappointed now...

    I'm that noob with all this I don't even know which cables I require to connect the Modi 2 to the Vali :D   Do I buy these? http://www.electromod.co.uk/schiit-audio/schiit-accessories/pyst-xlr-cables/ or...

    Honestly I don't know what I'm buying, I'm not an audiophile (yet) but I got the 700's for a steal of a price.   I'm tempted to go for the Schiit Modi2/Vali combo.

    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    Had no issues with the official ASUS drivers, do the unified ones offer anything to make me bother switching?

    [New] Philips Fidelio X1

    I've been looking for an upgrade as well, want something that still has a warm sound with good bass and sound stage. I've been looking at HD650's but I think the bass is a lot more balanced and neutral on those and I won't like them.   I think once you start upgrading from here it can be hard...

    AKG K702 65th Anniversary Edition

    I'm thinking of going from Fidelio X1's to these, are they a completely different sound? How's the bass?

    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    Anyone went from a lower xonar card like a DGX to the STX and noticed a difference? I have the chance to pickup an STX at a reduced price brand new tomorrow but don't know if it's going to offer a noticeable improvement.
