If they're as comfy as the 800s (most comfortable headphone on the market imo) and sound nearly as good, then for the price I think they'll be unbeatable at the moment.

not too sure of the styling of the 700. too many years of being used to the 580s/650
but yeah definitely looks like this one a hd800 lite.

looks like the cables arent replaceable either without a recable, what a pita. could be wrong.

I would not be tempted with HD800 walking around in case someone realises the value of the headphones that I have.

The cable is replaceable.....
ahh ok, so i was wrong, doesnt look like it uses the same lemos as the hd800 though, or does it? maybe its just that 3d realization above that doesnt look right because the artist didnt have the spec for the connector

However, I find that (physical) retailers (other than headphonic in Perth) have limited range of headphone amps. But then most purchasers go online anyway etc. Too much of a niche.
Easier to sell speakers, AV receivers etc where testing or auditioning is important and less prone to an online purchase (being more expensivethan a headphone amp)

dont mean to dissagree firefly, but see it is just so easy to demo headphones. dont take up space. nothing required re demo room and a simple headphone amp and source all needed. so dont understand why retailers wouldnt take the effort. In as far as listening to them before purchase I'd say just as important. as having owned 3-4 sennheisers theres quite different sound character between even them. Important to listen before purchase as a blind buy here too could lead to disappointment, or just place in a buy sell cycle until end up landing upon what might appeal !
I absolutely agree with you 100%.
Important to listen etc before buying.
