My ATH-A700s for sale, I've owned these for a couple of years now, they're great headphones for the money.  In very good shape, they have a few very light and barely noticeable scratches on the outer housings, I'll put in a photo that sort of shows what I'm talking about.  The couple of small scratches are very difficult to see, these have a very nice dark blue metallic finish on the outer plastic that looks much better in person than in photos.
 
The only other thing is that I carefully trimmed back a few millimeters of the insulation on the headphone jack because of the stupid design of the first generation iphone and its recessed jack, it was the only way to make it fit without getting an adapter.  You'll hopefully be able to see from the photo that there is still some pretty solid plastic insulation covering the wiring and solder joints, so it nothing there was cut or affected.  These sound great, are in great shape, have a few hundred hours of use and should be fully burned in.  The pads are perfect as can be seen in the photos.  Cable is nylon braid covered (shoestring) and is in nice shape, no noticeable fraying.  1/4 inch adapter is included, but I do not have the original box anymore.
 
I'm asking $$$SOLD$$$ shipped to the CONUS, and accept Paypal only.  Thanks!!!
 
---Just noticing that adding photos is not like it used to be, I'll see if I can post a reply and add photos.  If not, please PM me and I'll be glad to send photos.---

Been wanting a pair of these for a while.  I do a bit of business traveling - is it more on ear or around ear and how is the isolation?



Not trying to scare you away from these because they are nice headphones, but I've read reviews that say isolation is decent, but not quite at the level you may want for say flying in a plane. These also have a 10ft cord and a high impedence (65ohm, I think) which is not ideal for traveling. They also do not fold for easy packing and are large in size (circumaural or around the ear as you mentioned).

Isolation is decent, not enough to completely block airplane drone, though. These don't clamp down real hard and while that results in less isolation it does make them more comfortable to wear. These are big as hell, and they don't fold up, so these aren't a great choice for traveling. I've never had a real problem driving them straight out of an iPod and getting them comfortably loud with sufficient resolution but the drivers are big enough that a decent amp will improve them, though not by a huge degree. The cups are huge, and should easily provide a good circumaural (around the ear) fit for most people.
