    Too bad that it is matte black, that worsens its light reflection...
    No the pads are actually better and do not create pain, no worries.

    Pads are basically the same as HD650 as far as I can tell. Can’t be sure though as I already sold my HD650.

      Maybe this was their inspiration?

    The show was CanJam Europe: https://www.canjam-europe.com/en/best-of-show-award-2/. No mention about how winners are chosen. The organizer of the event got to decide who receives these "awards" and I wouldn't put much weight into it.

    Amartignano, I think I saw you on another thread reviewing the HD599's (sorry if that wasn't you). If you've heard HD598's before, could you tell me a bit about how they compare to the HD700, in terms of the sound signature? For example, would you say they sound more like 598's than 600's? I've heard hd600's and wasn't thrilled with them, mostly because of the smaller soundstage, but also wished they had a little more warmth/bass. I know opinions are mixed on the 700's but you seem to love them, and I'm really curious how they sound. I love the signature of the 598's, do you think they sound similar enough that I would like them? I also ask as a fellow classical fan. :)

    Hi fellow classical fan! Yes it was me! I had also the hd598 (which is almost equal to the hd599 overall). You'll find wider and airier soundstage on the Hd700, but the 598 is maybe more "dense" sounding overall. The Hd700 has admirable detail and air coupled with involving warmness, but with a somewhat weird response in the mid-high region, because of this some timbre are slightly over-analyzed (violins, trumpets). Nevertheless, when ear is accustomed to this (mine was almost suddenly), with the Hd700 I feel a sensation of being in the concert hall like I do live, which is quite unique among the many headphones I had in life. Pure classical fun for me! As always, you have to listen to know if you'll like the Hd700.
