OMG, is that a FX700? I sure hope for my wallet that they are not vastly better than the FX500.

I am not at all happy with the Easter bunny myself. Did not bring my D2000 yet.

Hey james!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats!! Can you send your Easter Bunny my way? Mine left nothing but a lump of fox plop outside my house

Anyway, I'm really interested to know how the vocals sound with the FX700. My main issue with the FX500 was that no matter which tips I used, or what EQ I applied, I could never get enough substance from the vocals. They always sounded vaguely thin and recessed to me. Looking really forward to your impressions

Is it just me or do they look entirely the same as the FX500?

Seems he's being a wee bit coy, because methinks they're the blurry ones in the background with the bigger housing.....FX500's are in the foreground.

Sounds right, the blurry ones have the golden ring at the strain relief

You're right, I thought it was a nice setting, the successor in the background. But I didn't anticipate folks taking the FX500 for the FX700, lol.

I got them from PriceJapan for about €280 including shipping and customs (BTW roughly the same that the Coppers cost here in Europe).

As for first impressions, I'll leave them playing/burning overnight, looking forward to a proper listening session tomorrow.
