I have had one problem: the headphone cord broke, developing its fault near the 1/4in phone plug. I received a return authorization from Sennheiser, and sent the cord to them. Perhaps they see it as a wear and tear item, but sadly I have had no reply including to my additional requests for information. I have not had problems with Sennheiser before, and they have reconditioned quite a few of my headphones over the past 15 years.
Fortunately, the cord that Sennheiser sells for their 477 and 497 headphones fits the HD700 just fine. As I mention in the review below, the connection to the headphone is usual sub-mini mono TS phone plug, so these are headphones that you should be able to make a cord for, of wire of your choice, in a length of your choice.
The case is holding up well: I pack the headphones in it five days a week as I head for work.
The ear pads and headband strap are in good shape, and they are easy to keep clean.
The sound seems as fresh and clear as it did the day they arrived. In the past year I have spent as many happy hours with this audio product, and I recommend them highly. They are probably the most satisfying part of the music reproduction chain that I have yet owned, although I hear that David Janszen's new speakers are a work of art.

My hope is that this review will complement the material in the other reviews, and not be simply another rehash of how great the sound is.Read more ›
Which is good for me, frankly, because the treble on the HD800 would tire me out sometimes.
In the sound department, the bass is tighter, though still not anything close to 'bass-head' headphones. The soundstage is smaller, which I find better. It's like being in the front row of a concert, instead of being on the actual stage, which is how I describe the HD800's.
The micro-fibre material is soft and luxurious. Sennheiser hasn't said whether they're using the same Japanese Alcantra fabric as the HD800's, but it sure feels the same. The headphones weight in at 14.4 oz, which is heavy, but the light clamping pressure and fabric makes for a comfortable fit where I didn't notice the weight. You could wear these for a long listening sessions without any discomfort.
These are not portable headphones. There is zero-noise isolation, which helps with the soundstage and openness of the headphones, but wouldn't make you very popular on the commute. These are designed for the home-audio enthusiast.
Overall, if you want the highest quality headphones possible and liked the HD800's, but balked at their price, these won't disappoint. They also don't require a perfect setup for them to excel. I used a cheap E7 Portable Amp and they sounded just fine.

Amazing sound when your ready to step up. Works well with any device but you will need a good DAC or amp for this to be worth it. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
Comfortable, open sounding, and detailed. Should be driven by good amp with good DAC.Published 2 months ago by Juanf
I wanted cans that could take full advantage of high resolution and full 44.1/16 cd quality recordings, and the 700's certainly meet that requirement. Read morePublished 2 months ago by jerry
