Just got my A700's

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
AND WOW! Super impressed with the sound quality they give out for $100 cans! Jamming out to some Pelican,Mastodon, and ISIS right now. Great buy to anyone who's is thinking about getting them. Going to give some home theater receiver a shot after I finish up with the music. Tested out the Ipod with them a bit ago and they sound great on that. Damn do they get loud!

Also very excited about how light they are. They really don't feel like they are squeezing your head at all. Just waiting to see how hot they get, hoping they breath well.

High's from the drum set's and low's from the bass kicks are clear as day's and just a little bass to give you a good feel for the music.

A700's or AD700's?

Mine don't get hot at all either, and I live in a ~25c ambient

A700's, I didn't think they were as big as they are. my wife laughed at me when they were on my head (not that head for sick people like me)

Yeah they certainly are large! What's the bass like? People think the bass on the AD's is not enough... but I find it short and punchy, and not overly loud. It could do with a lower frequency response from what I've seen. And they are open designed.

So, question is, what's the bass like on the A700's?

The AD700 bass is in no way punchy, Linkin. Quite the opposite. The sound is there, but there's no rumble or punch at all. I like high-pitched music though, so I don't mind.

I don't have anything higher-quality to compare to, but my in ear heaphones and my old headset (cheap Creative gaming headset) sound really bad in comparison to the AD700s.

Congrats on the purchase. Good set of cans! Enjoy it . They are a bit bass short for my taste and I am not talking of that horrid boom which is forced in your ear at high volume, I am referring to pure low bass which is round and precise.

A good example is the following song : Daft Punk - Da Funk, Daftendirekt. The majority of cans will boom in your head and give you the impression that you have bass. A short selection, like the D2K will go fairly low and constantly push those low frequencies in your head and not outside .

The Bass on them is there. Just threw in my Incredible Hulk Bluray(The good one) and the bass the cans produced was quite good. Almost sounded much like my big sub I have on my 7.1 HT setup minus the rumble and shake of the floor/house. Audio was clean an clear during bass driven parts, all in all great pair of phones.

Final test: time to play some BF3

Nice choice of cans. I've been using AD700's for nearly two years now and always wondered how the closed version sounds. Good to see you enjoying them.
