    From sonarworks, individual correction for the HD700.What do you think guys?

     I share your excitement - L Shankar is one of my favourites too (check out Shakti - the original albums like Natural Elements or Handful of Beauty - both with L Shankar ... or his album with Jan Gabarek)  ... as well try newer recordings like Zakir Hussain 'Making Music' -- instrument separation, 3d stage - exceptional with the HD700  (or check George Brooks - Summit album)
    Sooo much good music, soo little time  :)

    I am so surprised by the polarizing opinions on these headphones.

    Listened to them the other day with a Marantz CD player, using its headphone output.

    I loved the sound. More than the 650? Absolutelly. The 650 sounded smaller and muffler. And even with some volume, I didnt find the 700 fatiging (and I'm usually quite sensitive by these things).

    Maybe they are too source dependent?
  5. SomeGuyDude
    I have a feeling they are CRAZY dependent upon what they're hooked up to, because as much as I'm aware of the light treble spike, they do not strike me as super bright like others are claiming.
    What I notice more than anything is the longer I listen, I keep finding myself gently nudging the volume up and up and up. I wouldn't be able to do that if they were painful.

    Can i know whats the current batch number on Amazon 430 pricing? Mines on the way.
  7. SomeGuyDude
    No idea, but I got mine through the same current Amazon pricing and I adore it.
  8. slex
    Nevermind, almost summit-fi atmid-fi price:grin:
  9. SomeGuyDude
    I still can't believe they're priced at nearly the same as the HD650. O_o

    HD650 went down $330 last i seen on amazon. Now i wish some padding companies will manufactures the Pads for HD700. It cost almost a quarter price of HD700 now.

    Anyone knows any custom made pads for HD700?

    I was shopping for the HD650 a few months ago, and stumbled across the 700 at the $430 price. I decided to buy both from Amazon, put them through a shootout with my Lyr2 and happily sent the HD650 back. 
    I didn't pay any attention to the HD700 when it came out, so I was only vaguely aware of the wave of negativity. I just don't understand how people could possibly hate the sound that I'm hearing every day. Something doesn't add up.

    I think it was the $999 price tag at the time. Someone had a problem with the treble spike and it just snowballed.
  13. SomeGuyDude
    That's gotta be it. I definitely wouldn't spend $1000 on them, but I sure as hell would never have spent $500 on the HD650s either. 
    Side note: if anyone's looking for a cheap-ass IEM to go with your 700s, the MEE M6 Pro is SURPRISINGLY good and seems to scratch the same itch.

    I would say they ARE summit-fi. I think that in years to come, they will finally be considered as one of the classic headphones of the last 20 years. When the Denon AH-D5000 came out, no one predicted that they would be so highly sought many years later. I think the HD700 will follow the same path. I'm definitely going to hold on to mine for as long as possible.
  15. SomeGuyDude
    I agree. I haven't heard the HD800 in a while (and never the 800S), but I know flat out that while I liked the 800 a lot, it sounded too sterile for my personal tastes. There's a weird allure to the 700, one that tells me they'll have a place in the stable for a long time.
