Enjoy enhanced sound with these Sennheiser HD 700 over-the-ear headphones that feature 10Hz - 42kHz frequency response to reproduce sound faithfully and a vibration-damping frame to eliminate unwanted sound.
Looks like there aren't enough negative mentions yet.

The Sennheiser HD 700 has an absolutely huge sound stage and delivers on the promises of it being in between the Dark HD 650's and Sennheiser's flagship HD 800. The HD 700 has an amazing top end the middle to match, although i did find some issues when watching some movies and particularly listening to jazz. The treble will peak quite high and is sometimes painful if you have the volume to high. The bottom end of these guys is also amazing responding quite accurately and hard although, it will be missing if you do not have proper amplification. Currently i have a Fiio e10 DAC going into my Little Dot 1+, which in my opinion is under powering them. However i have tried them on an O2 and they did generate a larger bottom. Finally about the sound and my favorite part about these headphones is that are supremely detailed and clear (given the right source.) Lastly and my only negative about them is that they have this beautiful, fine silver looking mesh that has been designed to help with air flow so that the transducer isn't affected by turbulence. These parts are extremely fragile and dent very easily. Over all i cannot fault these headphones over a little build quality when they deliver some of the best sound quality i have heard and some what prefer to some of its opponents. (LCD-2, AHD-7100)

You Have Reached the Pinnacle

I own an embarrassing number of headphones priced from $20.00 to $700.00. Among them are Grado RS1i's, Beyerdynamic T90's, Hifiman HE 400i's, AKG Q 701's, Philips X2's, Sennheiser 598's,600's, 650's, Audio Tecnica MSR 7's, Bang and Olufsen H6's and Bowers and Wilkens P7's.
While I love the sound of all of those mid fi cans and thought you couldn't do much better than those for sound quality. Well man was I wrong. The 700'sound when matched with a nice amp are much better. They have a huge soundstage with great width and depth. Details are fantastic with great decay. Instrument separation is exceptional. Bass is very much present but accurate and not artificialy boomy. Mid's are flavorful and smooth. High's are outstanding.
These headphones are just a must for critical listening. The 700's match up especially well with tube amps.

Doesn't Get Better than This for Under $1000.00

I collect headphones and own an embarrassing number of headphones and iem's. These Sennheiser's have become a favorite of mine. The sound of these is simply top class. They present a balanced aural arrangement where bass,mid's and high's compliment each other rather than compete against each other. Bass goes deep without bloat or overwhelming the mid's. It is accurate without artificial boominess. Mid's are creamy smooth and lush. High's sing a beautiful song, accurate and detailed.
The sound stage on these is huge with width and depth. Instrument separation is exceptional without a hint of congestion.
The HD 700's have placed my much loved Grado RS1i's in the second fiddle position due to their larger soundstage. Beyerdynamic T90's compete well with the HD 700's but also can't match the sound stage of the Sennheiser's.
They also outperform their kin the HD 650's , HD 600's, HD 598'S and Momentum's with better accuracy, detail and instrument placement.
To truly appreciate the performance of these cans you need to listen to high resolution files with a good amp. These cans match especially well with a tube amp.

Best Sennheiser Headphone for the Money
Posted by: finsfaninjax from: on
For the price I paid for these headphones, these are the best deal out there for a non-electrostatic audiophile headphone, Yes, the HD800's are better quality but at less than half the price, the HD700's are an excellent 2nd choice

My ears loves it!!
Posted by: luv4USA from: on
I paired this with Apogee Groove USB DAC/amp and the music really stands out. I can hear every bit of instrument/s used. Every music I throw at it, oh my goodness, the sound stage is awesome. My ears simply loves it and super comfortable as well. I think it just awakened my long asleep audiophile ears.

it is good but not so good
Posted by: Talman from: on
Comparing with Sennheiser costs money on the package, I am so surprised that the producer even doesn't attach an adapter in the box !
I checked with BestBuy but didn't find any. Finally I spent a week to receive it by ordering from web.
The cord is really long long long .... kindly mess in my place !
The quality of sound is very good, but seriously not far from my other Sennheiser headphones or earbuds, generally they are very close. The sound is not that natural for listening classic music.
The quality of sound is far better than some other popular brands. But for Sennheiser itself, for the remarkable price ( now it is cheaper by on-sale ), it could be better.
