thats why I tried them as well... but I just dont get why people are so crazy about them. The only other 2 headphones I have tried so far was the ATH-M50 and the DT770 Pro 80 ohm. The m50s sounded GREAT and had plenty of bass to satisfy but I could only wear them for so long until it got uncomfortable and hot. The DT770s sound just as good and have the same amount of bass (maybe a little bit more), has a larger soundstage, and the ear cups are a soft material that can breathe. I can listen to them for hours and hours without any problems. I got mine at guitar center for 175 bucks. They were 199.99 but they had a 12 percent off coupon. They are currently offering 20 bucks off anything above 100 bucks though and can be done online or printed out for in store.
From the 4 I have tried I would say DT770>M50>A700>AD700. I have also read great things about some ultrasone headphones but cant say anything myself on them.
I truly have no idea why so many people suggest the AD700/A700 headphones... sometimes I think they are just trying to justify their purchase. The ear cups feel horrible, the 3d wing support is junk, and have no bass.... snap your fingers next to your ear... thats the amount of bass the AD700s produce. Also keep in mind I did adjust my EQ settings and it still sounded bad. It did add some bass but it dropped in quality.Edited by Ratjack - 2/8/12 at 10:32pm
