There are a lot of things $1000 will buy you. A few hours at the “club.” Rent or a good chunk of your mortgage payment. A down payment on a Rolex. It will also get you these Sennheiser HD700 Headphones. Why would anyone spend $1000 on this particular pair of headphones? Because they’ve got a vibration damping frame, an ultra-wide soundstage and specialty steel mesh for the drivers. That means the 40mm Duofol transducers coverage a range of 10 – 42,000Hz with a total harmonic distortion less than 0.03%. In other words, the highs, mids and lows of the original are reproduced almost perfectly. At this price they’re for serious audiophiles only, but if you happen to fall into that category you should start setting aside some dollars now.
