    Why are so many K701, 702 for sale?

    Why are so many K701, 702 for sale?

    ^ Most studios use monitors to mix and master, and closed phones for recording. Marketing aside, the K702 isn't a "pro" headphone anymore than the Macbook Pro is a "pro" laptop.

    Amp for Audio Technica ATH-AD500's?

    Quote: Originally Posted by KidJethro Ok, the AD700's showed up. First impressions- Other than color, and the model # printed on them, they are identical to the AD500's in appearance and materials. I can tell by looking at the driver's that they are different. The AD700's looks larger...

    Amp for Audio Technica ATH-AD500's?

    I've also read both phones are virtually alike. Would be fun to do a blind listen between the AD500, 700, and 900. I wouldn't be surprised if the differences could easily be attributed to preference.

    What is the affordable 'best' of each manufacturer.

    I don't understand this pathological drive to describe the K501 as a $100 headphone and various Stax rigs as $300 gear; they aren't. It's like telling someone they can find savings accounts with 15% APR if they look around for a good deal. Such options are few and far between for most people...

    how close sennheiser PX100 to HD595?

    The HD595 is an overpriced clone of the HD555. Get the HD555 and call it a day.

    Metro.fi 200v w/ mic for 24.99 @ amazon

    Well, I've had them for a few days now, and am very happy with them. They work well for listening while riding, which was why I'd bought them. I ordered two pairs. Incidentally, Amazon is no longer directly selling them, as of this evening. The price is currently $85. For that price, you could...

    What is the affordable 'best' of each manufacturer.

    As someone else who also owned both the AD700 and K701, I'd take the former over the latter any day. The argument that you need to spend $500 to make a $300 phone sound "better" than a $100 phone merely indicates how underwhelming so many expensive phones are.

    Mid-hi-fi vs Hi-fi

    ^ Yup. No phone is objectively better than another; it's all subjective. Some phones cost more, some cost less. SQ depends on the listener.
