Well if you like them, to hell what the people of Head-fi say!

They're just pretty low in Senn's lineup, so they're not admired as much as the bigger brothers. I've listened to them a bit and they're a great budget set, a lot of the qualities of the HD555 for a lower price.

What grade would you guys rate them at?
So far I'm hearing full rich sound, specifically Intricate Highs, smooth and clear Mid/Vocals, and very sharp tight bass. Not huge but decent, great impact for open's.

Running them off my Onkyo TX-SR602 7.1 reciever (In Silver), and later off my (Hopefully) new Auzentech X-Plosion.
Also getting a Fiio E5 just to try it out, see if it can boost my iPod sound any.

So I guess I could be going:
Auzentech X-Plosion --> Onkyo TX-SR602 --> ATH-AD700 (Or my 5.1 when I feel like it)

How are those AD900's treating you jpw007, I would have liked to have gotten them, but I had to cut the budget somewhere.
Still, these AD700's should do for a start. Shocking I know but this is my first pair of Headphones over $30 AUD, quite a big jump for me, well worth it.
Havn't got them yet, i thought they would be here today but its 3-5 working days to get to me from Perth. Was only 3 for my ES7's so i was holding out but alas they didnt arrive

Will def let you know what i think of them once i have had time to listen!

Tnx for that, hopefully you'll get them on Monday, only problem is you cant compare them to my AD700's, order a pair of AD700's too, than tell me how they compare!

by tuning i mean if you took the time to make a flat eq so they can sound as good as possible. This eq will be particularly for you because not everyone hears the same. You can do this with some software but im not having the best of luck with it =(. Im asking because I heard the grados are even better when tuned.

Most of such tuning was accomplished by letting my brain acclimate ...

I liked the RS1's instantly when I first got them some year or so ago.

The GS1000's were a whole other deal, though ... and at first I found the highs to be way to forward in the mix, not fatiguing, just too pronounced ...

But now I love the GS1000's and they get 99% of my play time.

The way I managed this was to loan the RS1's out to a friend for a week and so thereby forced myself to listen only to the GS1000's ...

After that week I was sold ...

Yes, compared to the RS1's ... the GS1K's have a notch up in the highs regarding the overall mix ... and yes ... the GS1k's have a bit more recessed midrange image than the RS1's ... but also true ... the GS1K's are ever so slightly more refined, quiet and resolved sounding ... bit better behaved ... and especially ... the GS1K's bass is several orders of magnitude better than the RS1's ... and in fact, is about the best bass I've heard out of any headphone.

So for me ...

Brain burn in is far more important than materials burn in ... in fact, I think that brain burn in is the better part of the "burn in" phenomenon entirely.

So good luck!

yeah but if you dont tune them, you cant hear certain frequencies coming from the music. thats why you tune them in order so you can hear everything coming from the music. Not trying to start a flame war or anything...
