I find my EL8s to be pretty heavy at 460g, I modified the headband and changed the pads and I can wear em all day at that point, but 700g...

Dang! That's pretty awesome! I'm hoping the 700 grams is the weight of the entire product itself, box and all, and not just the headphones. Hopefully it was a mistake.

I see they also introduced a M1070 which might be a replacement for the M1060. If it solves the sonic issues of the 1060, there’s a great chance it will be an Audeze killer.

These specs are definitely worth it for $599.99. Not to mention its protein leather pads.

What in the specs would make it worth the price... What in the specs for the Utopia, HD800, SR1A, etc. make them worth their prices. You can't see a frequency response, square wave, an impulse/needle response, anything that would indicate how the things sound.
