I've had my K7XX for a couple of months now and I really enjoy the very wide soundstage and the spacing of the instruments....like the sound is coming from outside the headphone cups.
In looking for something I'd like even more than the K7XX, the logical choice seems to be the AKG K812.  
Anyone heard any headphones that do what I want.?  I think I'd describe what I want as the very wide soundstage of the K7XX with possibly more detail and even greater clarity/fluidity.

This is what happens when you buy from a group discount site. If you want good communication and fast delivery, pay amazon $450 for the k712. Otherwise, stop complaining so the rest of us can enjoy this steal of a deal in peace and harmony:p

I have been dealing with LH Labs for awhile now. When I first bought from Massdrop I actually marveled at how well they communicate.
I guess everything is relative. Anyway, I know that when you are waiting for something... in a world of the expectation of instant gratification... it can be tough.
Shipping out 1000 sets of headphones is a non-trivial task.
 
I am pretty sure that you will get your headphones soon. If not, contact them.
 
Far from being an apologist for Massdrop... I am just trying to be realistic.

Did anyone from the most recent drop get a tracking number and/or receive their pair yet?


Nope, still waiting for mine to ship.


I received mine last week


What number were you?




Jeez! last in first out i guess. Unless you were from the last drop and not the one that ended on March 5/6th?

Didn't the most recent drop JUST end? Highly doubt anyone has gotten theirs, yet. Dude clearly had to have been talking about the second drop. Patience, people!

Someone on the mass drop page got theirs, although they said they live close to NJ so it was only one day in shipping.

SO all this time I was thinking the "bass port mod" was just removing that foam crap from the out cap, didn't know there was actually a sticker covering a hole inside. Removed them and it sounds a lot less boomy.
 
I'm curious why they'd even put a sticker over it.

lol I removed them and I would say boomy is the what they become to each his own I guess.

Try the original K701, the K702 or perhaps even the Q701.  I've owned the K701 (for years) and now own the K712 and the K7XX.  I think the latter two have more bass response but sacrifice some of the mid and upper detail, and soundstage, of that from the K701.  Never heard a pair of K812.  Point of diminishing returns and all that.

Anyone have any recommendations for an inexpensive shorter cable for these headphones? I was thinking about getting one of those ~$15 ones from ebay. Has anyone tried those? They look decent
