Will do. I heard one this past weekend with 880s and really enjoyed it. Had a unique sound but it wasn't a long enough listen to get a gauge of what it was doing. I'm excited to finish it up, just waiting for some parts. When you screw up or lose parts they ship you replacements. Bottlehead is a really cool company and their forum has lots of help for first time DIYers.

I'm not enough into the whole scene to "test" headphones but when i get some new ones the first song I run through them is The Stranglers-Golden Brown.

I've found that its a song that seems to scale particularly well with quality, but that might just be me I think its the harpsicord that does it tend to sound really muffled and/or tinny on cheaper headphones.

My HD558's arrived Friday. I hooked them up to my PC speaker setup Fri night and have just been letting music play nonstop. I got up a bit ago and have just been listening to music for the last 45min or so. With only 36 or so hours on these headphones they sound fantastic. Color me impressed. I haven't gotten a new pair of headphones for a while, and honestly I haven't listed to my HD555 in a few months, and it's been several months since I've listened to HD595's, but I do not remember the 555's being this good. While not as open and clear as my HD600, they just have a great neutral sound to them.

Setup as of right now: iTunes playing Apple Lossless - USB DAC - Musical Paradise MP-301 speaker amp.

I'll have to find a connecter that I can use and get a better cable on these to see what they can do. I originally purchased these for that sole purpose, but now I'm genuinely interested for myself. I can see myself grabbing these headphones over some of my other sets if I don't feel like setting up my dedicated headphone rig. I believe I've found my new favorite entry level headphone that I will be recommending to friends and family.

Interesting, how do you feel they stack up to the 595s?

I have a pair of M50s and am wondering if the AD700s are that much better than the M50s for games like BF3. Any opinions/other recommendations?

Yes. My experience with the M50s were that they had a very closed off soundstage, which is not what you want for gaming. The AD700s have one of the best soundstages out there, while it may be slightly unnaturally large, it makes them perfect for positional audio. For music, however, they're much more particular than the M50s, which are more of a "do-it-all" headphone. They have some genres that they excel at, while they fall flat on their face in others.

I've always heard that the AD700's were great for gaming. The M50, not so much.

@pangolinman: off topic> Fate/Zero and Fate/Stay Night all the way. Two of the best anime out there.

I found about Fate/Zero first and then found out about Fate/Stay Night. I watched a bit of Fate/Stay Night but it's not as epic as Fate/Zero. Plus, while Waver Velvet was in the school library, it gave us a good description and introduction about what the Holy Grail War is. Plus, the description anime sites give are pretty informative too. It's also great to see Girl's Dead Monster in more animes too. I just couldn't get enough of them in "Angel Beats!". Japanese Music > Everything Else.
