In regards to all the talk about how these sound, I'm getting them for music, period. I also don't use phones or PCs or little gadgets for sources. I plug straight into my amps/receivers, so I need not concern myself with how they sound with games, TV etc. I predict these are going to work well for me. I'm getting them as an upgrade or at least something different from my Senn HD518s. I'm after better detail, wider staging and balance across the frequencies as best as possible (in other words, nothing too over done. From what I have read these and the K712 deliver that). Again though its all what flavor you like and I may like this flavor.
One thing I have noticed is how slow this drop is going. I jumped on it yesterday because I've tried 3 times in the past and the drop ended a couple of hours after launch and I was thinking, "oh, I'll just wait until I get home and jump in." Only to find the drop ended hours before then. Now, I'm looking at this thinking I could have waited, but then again there is Murphy's law to contend with, so I'm glad I did not make the same mistake as the 3 times before.
I predict that your prediction will be correct.
I bought my K7XX's last year for the exact same purpose - to listen to music from dedicated analog equipment (from the 70's - 80's). I have been perfectly happy with the sound and the build quality. I have not had any issues whatsoever. A (subjectively) neutral sounding headphone that I think is superb for the price. I believe you will thoroughly enjoy them!
In regards to how "slow" the drop is going, I don't believe they're going that slow. This drop has only been made available since 6 AM PDT yesterday, and it's already around ~320 units reserved considering it's just a day and a quarter of another.
I'd say this is how it normally goes, so you might expect these to ship out earlier -- probably within this week, if we're being optimistic here. The last few other drops had less in stock at their warehouse, I believe, which is why they ended so quickly.
Hmm, didn't look at it that way, makes sense.
I'm in no rush, they can ship mine whenever.
