What do you prefer?
Also is there a can that is analytical and warm?
I remember seeing a graph which put in a lot of cans on a scale of this but don't remember the location of it.
Anyone who can link to it = great

I prefer a perfect medium not warm or analytical. Too much in either direction takes increasingly becomes is a sound that will get old over time.

the hd600s are fun and warm but also analytical.

If I were to pick among your 2 choices, it would be hard. It just needs to sound closest to reality for me to be fun

I totally agree here.

Since the perfect can hasn't been made yet though... we have no choice but to pick one that sounds closest to the real thing.

I agree with Rob here, but if I had to choose I prefer slightly warm over slightly cold.

I've never heard a phone I'd describe as cold, fun, or analytical.

With regard to warmth, I've always found that relative.

With regard to preference, I've never thought about any of this stuff.

Can you describe the sound you get from the hqeadphones your selling?

In comparison to the AD700:

Clearer. Maybe wider. A touch warmer. There's a nice sense of space in the middle, and the bass is more present.
