Designed to fill the gap between the HD 650s and the flagship HD 800s, the new HD 700s essentially share the status of flagship top-of-the-line headphones with the 800s. The open 800s are superb dynamic headphones featuring spatial accuracy and unparalleled imaging. Their innovative design uses a large "ring radiator" driver that is positioned a bit forward of the ears and then angled slightly backwards so that they deliver a more planar wave front. That modified acoustic wave front is the source of the 800s improved imaging as it more closely mimics the way we actually perceive sound. Listening to orchestral music, for example, produces an often uncanny sound stage of depth and breadth that enables you to position each instrument with impressive accuracy as to spatial location. The timbre of each instrument is likewise accurately reproduced, making the 800s the headphone of choice for recording purposes if accuracy is the major criterion. But all of this spatial and acoustic accuracy comes with a price. Some listeners find the 800s to be overly accurate, too acoustically detailed, too "analytical" in its approach. There is a slight increase in frequency response at 7khz during the otherwise nearly perfect treble roll-off, which may be the source of that perceived aggressive accuracy which some have found fatiguing. My listening experience has not found them problematic but nearly perfect in their ability to reproduce any given recording. The 800s are well engineered for reproducing instrumental and vocal music recorded with "passive" techniques, that is without the added distortion, compression, coloring, bass or brightness of many current popular music recordings. Headphones like the Audeze LCD-2 with their potent bass and fast response may be more attuned to this variety of popular music.Read more ›

[Pre-pendum]: I have had the headphones for a year now, and my high opinion has not changed as I have gotten to know them better. I have been wearing them four to five hours, five days a week, usually with the BeyerDynamic A1 as the amplifier.

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.

--- Original Review Follows Unmodified ---

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.

I've had the HD800's for over a year now and I love them, but man, it's like living with a perfectionist. You have to have the best tube amp, with the best after-market cable and the best lossless audio source for it all to work together. Well, when I got the HD700's and connected them to my HD800 setup, they sounded almost as good: the crisp, pristine clarity was outstanding, although they are 'darker sounding' headphones, meaning they don't have as much treble presence.
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.
Build Quality:
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.
