Welcome to Headphone Heights, the place for all your ear bud discussion

don't agree re 701s and 650s

I owned the HD600 and HD650 one after the other. I didn't like the sound of either one, but in any case, they definitely do NOT image like speakers. The soundstage is still between your ears and inside your head. That's it.

I now own AKG K702 (same as 701 except for different color and a detachable cable). I really like the headphones, but they definitely give you the same music-in-your-head experience as the Senns and any other headphones I've tried (which does not include the K1000s, Senn 800s, or any planar headphones). Binaural recordings DO give you that surrounding experience and wide soundstage using just about anything you can put in or over your ears, but there aren't many that have much musical value.
