My Audio Technica FC7's broke recently, so I decided to go with the slightly pricier A-700's(sealed back). I've had them for two days, and I'm not that impressed. They are very comfy though.SQ wise, the highs are fantastic, but that's about it. The bass is ok. They seem to lack that mid-bass punch that I like(I listen to all kinds of metal), but anything below 60hz, roughly, they do fine. But the deal-breaker for me is their midrange. The midrange sounds weak, almost distant/recessed. This is especialy noticable while watching tv. Has anyone with these headphones experienced this lack of midrange? Do they just need some "burn-in" time? I can deal with a slight lack of bass, but lacking midrange drives me insane. How do the other AT's stack up against these? Any input is appreciated!
