I am looking to buy some A700s, but one thing that I have noticed is that the ones I have found online at amazon and the such look vastly different than the ones displayed on the AT website and at headphone.com.

Audio-Technica - Microphones, headphones, wireless microphone systems, noise-cancelling headphones & more : ATH-A700 : Closed-back Dynamic Headphones
(AT site.)

Did these phones undergo a major redesign, and, if so, does it affect the sound?

I've seen the blue one before too, but the black one is what you get when you click on A700 on Audiotechnica's website.

I don't think so. I see what you mean about the color but look at the other pics on headphone.com. The blackish looking ones are much flatter and are much shinier than the blue ones.

I already emailed them, but they haven't gotten back to me as of yet. I figured this would be much faster.
