Re: Which Sennheiser headphones?

It's a small world sometimes. I own Martin Logan EM-ESL's & love them. Another coincidence is that when I was in the navy I visited Cairns, Townsville & Brisbane for Battle of the Coral Seas celebration. This was about 1964. We were the first U.S, Navy ship into Cairns since WWII. The hospitality will not be forgotten.

Re: Which Sennheiser headphones?

Thanks Wayne, for ruining my marriage!
Don't know how it is in USA but here in Australia HD700 is almost twice the price of HD600.
And strange enough, if I have found very tempting offer from USA it also has a tag saying "For USA shipping only".

We'll see if HD700 will cost me: arm only or leg only or both maybe!?( I have only one leg left after Martin Logan ESL purchase.)

Cheers

Re: Which Sennheiser headphones?

Thanks Russ.

1964, I was 8 years old and living in Europe. Came to Australia in 1994 after surviving war in Bosnia.
I like Cairns a lot, very nice place to be.
I would say hospitality is still in tact even 1964 is so last Millenium.

All the best from hospitable Australia.

Re: Which Sennheiser headphones?

Thanks Wayne and Russ.

Problem solved! It is HD700, selection.
Ordered it over Internet from Melbourne, without audition.
Very good price (AUS $600, AUS $ = 0,71 USA$) for Australian market.
First test and it was Madonna Ray of Light CD and "Swim" song. Sound of the lazy sea waves are there crystal clear. Same test with old HD465 and no need for more testing.
Out of nice box and it feels heavy but put it on and it is very comfy.
As Russ mentioned it, before, very important not to get very hot ears, for me living in almost subtropical area it is esential.
Sound stage, you ask!?
Don't mention it!
It is so wide, beyond belief.
For untrained ears/brains it felt like someone is knocking on my front door and I had to take headphones off to check it out.
If I have to sumarize after few hours of testing this Sennheiser HD700 headphones are much more music X-Ray headphones than anything else.

Thanks again for your support.

Re: Which Sennheiser headphones?

The headphone pads are a standard replaceable part and can be bought as a spare from a Sennhieser supplier. Sennheiser are good when it comes to spares. I have replaced capsules and cables over the years.

Re: Which Sennheiser headphones?

Sorry for reviving an old thread but as I read Sennheiser I couldn't resist. PXC 550 are the best Sennheiser headphones I have ever used, great battery life and range. Quite expensive but overall great headphones
