Hi Aerius, can you please share with us - amplification and source used during your audition of K701.I did A-B K701 with three different amplifiers and they all sounded different from good to excellent to amazing.
... I've also used Grado S-80s (exciting, but with a narrow soundstage and hell on the pinnae; the wiring eventually gave out, a common problem with Grados),...
I've been considering upgrading to the 701s or making a sideways move to the Senn 650
Also, I don't think you would necessarily go for the Sennheiser 650 if you heard it - or have you? I much prefer the 501.

A guy I really respect on rec.music.classical.recordings, Simon Roberts, swears by the Stax Basic, and he listens to a huge amount of music through them.
From a musical point of view, the RS-1 is worlds ahead of the others, though many would disagree with me on this. For lack of a better term, the GS1000 does not have the Grado soul & magic
I am waiting to receive my AKG701 re-cabled by moon-audio. I think I am going to stay put for now.Looking at the frequency response Grado SR125 look most interesting and least colored.Thank you all.
