    Great mids and highs, somewhat bright ..sure sounds like a Grado to me...Maybe an RS1i. However when you factor in the comfort factor you are back with the HD700. I have never had any Sennheiser that was anything but totally comfortable. I personally find the RS1i comfortable but I have had several people tell me I must have a weird head or ears because they don't like wearing them for long.

    Are the mids vocals breathy on the RS1 and forward?

    No. If I had to choose one of the listed headphones now I'd probably opt for the HD 800 or HD 600, but saying that, the M50 is sounding pretty sweet now as I type this. However if it came to it I might deviate from this list and choose a Stax 009.

    HD700 is a little stuck in the middle. Both in price and in sound signature. But i can't elaborate too much about it since i only had a short demo.

    Kind of sparkly and clean, but might be sibilant and dry at times though.

    translation: clear treble with slightly emphasized detail with good recordings, piercing bright unnatural harshness and a thin lifeless sound on poor recordings.

    Lol not bad for someone who hasn't had a demo with it, quite close to my quick impressions.[​IMG]

    I am very much into "airy" sound and multidimensional soundstage. 
     
    After being allowed to audition the HD800 (the size of which I strongly disliked and thus - did not even consider buying initially) at home for a week (amped by WA6) - I ditched the HD700 on the second day without even thinking and never looked back.
     
     
     
    HD700 (which I liked and still consider it a great pair of cans) were really good at that, but the difference was absolutely worth both the price premium and the size punishment :)
