The Sennheiser HD 700s are an open, circumaural, dynamic stereo headphone that has been uniquely designed to produce sound in a way that simulates a set of stereo speakers.

The angled drivers send sound waves to your ears in a way that creates a wide soundstage for a more pure listening experience. The earcups feature a steel mesh open back and ventilated magnet structure to control airflow, which reduces turbulence for ultra-low distortion levels.

With similar design features to their top-selling HD 800, the Sennheiser HD 700s utilize a vibration-damping frame and specially layered headband to effectively eliminate unwanted resonances. This advanced construction produces warm, detailed, and balanced sound. Additionally, a connectable silver-plated oxygen-free copper cable allows for improved conductivity even at higher frequencies for a smooth, extended treble response that truly glows.

These high-performance headphones not only produce glorious audio, but are comfortable enough you’ll want to sport their soft, velour ear cushions for hours.

The HD 700s can be driven using the headphone outputs on most home audio systems but generate their best sound when used with a headphone amplifier.

Extremely comfortable, Clean well-balanced sound

I use these in my work environment where there is often a fair amount of background noise. Since the HD700 is open back, they do not do a great job of blocking out external noise.

On the one hand, this makes it relatively easy to hear when someone walks in my office, but I have to crank them up fairly loud if I want to block out external distractions.

That said, these phones are amazingly comfortable and sound fantastic. They are relatively neutral so they don't accentuate the bass like a lot of phones do. Excellent detail and beautiful vocal sounds. I can keep them on for hours at a time without getting uncomfortable, either from the sound or from the physical presence of the headphones themselves.

The HD700 is obviously not a budget headphone but they are extremely well made, very comfortable for extended listening, and sound great. I've been an "audiophile" for several decades and have spent ridiculous amounts of money on audio equipment in the past and these are the best sounding and most comfortable headphones I've had the pleasure of using.

I'd give them a 5.0 if they had a bit better sound isolation and/or were a bit cheaper, but I have no regrets with my purchase.

Superb Audiophile Headphones

I purchased these last month as an upgrade to my Sennheiser HD 650 headphones. Everything I've read about the 700's seems to be right, the sound is sharper with more clarity. I'm listening to these through a Schiit Lyr headphone amp. Overall I'm very pleased. Audiogeeks' price was very good, and the shipping was very fast.
