Well mine arrived in the post yesterday and I'm delighted.
In a way that reminds me of the Chord Mojo, these cans somehow spread the sound across a wider stage, offering real depth. Also, the bass was surprisingly muscular - something I consider to be a positive for listening enjoyment.
I am told that the Senn HD6XX offers greater detail, but then you will have less richness in the bass and a slightly smaller soundstage (again, so I am told), so it's swings and roundabouts.
As far as I am concerned, the AKG K7XXs have surpassed expectations.
Just wait until these burn in, I've heard they have an unusually long burn in time but supposedly they really fall into their own after letting them burn in for a week or so playing your library on repeat for a week or so while you're out sleeping/working. So tempted to grab these, but I just picked up the lza4 OEM do, can't justify both at the moment, at least Amazon has all the 700 series for around the same price.
Thanks, I've heard mixed reports on the legitimacy of "burn in". Tyll Hertsens of Innerfidelity has some videos on this which can be taken both ways. Seems his "subjective" test was in favour of the notion that improvement after "burn in" is a reality. Found some curious Youtube burnin tracks, btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9TgmvZhgJI
