I'm a Sennheiser fan and enjoying my HD 579 on my Dragonfly Red but would like to upgrade. I'm having difficulties choosing between the HD 660 S and HD 700 which are both available at around the same price. Any recommendations?

Supposedly if you remove a piece of foam from the HD 58X, then it is the same as the HD 660 S.

Though I wouldn't recommend any of them but at least not much money is lost on the HD 58X.

Forget about the HD700 unless you like peaked treble.

Listening to the 660s right now, I'd absolutely recommend it. I've heard the hd700... wasnt for me. But they have a point above the HD58X from what people are saying is to close to the 660s with the foam removed would be a better buy overall even if its only Close to 660s sounding.

There is removable foam inside the HD58X (like the HD558 has)?

That's the saying right now. There's a video on it too, can't find it though (if it was a Zeos review then I'd be skeptical).

What type of sound signature are you looking for? I think that would be the first approach in this decision.
