Audio-Technica ATH-A700

Audio-Technica ATH-A700, $127.34, Amazon, Returned, Refunded
Stereophile rates the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 "Class A".  The Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 is an open headphone, while the Audio-Technica ATH-A700 is a closed headphone.  Maybe the Audio-Technica ATH-AD700 is very different is character than the Audio-Technica ATH-A700, because the Audio-Technica ATH-A700 is not in the same league as the Sennheiser HD800 or HD650 (both also rated "class A").

Hoping that the Audio-Technica ATH-A700 was an inexpensive closed headphone in the league as the DT770 32ohm, but no such luck.  The soundstage is small and compact, sounds like the instruments are right next to my head.

Build Quality - 6, Lot's of plastic, doesn't feel like they will last very long
Comfort - 6.5, large ear cups fully enclose ears, the headphones feel as if they are falling down my head 
Bass - 5, thin sounding bass
Mid Range - 6, Realistic sounding 
Treble - 6.5

Rating 1-10, 10 being the best
