Hello! I was seriously considering these headphones for gaming/music. I was looking for something super immersive that treated vocals, environmental ambience and electronically-laced music very well (with no worries about the bass response being super heavy, just "right"). Need them to be very comfortable for 6+ hrs and not fatigue your jaw.
The only issue that has come up when reading reviews was someone mentioning that layers can "bleed" or "blend" into each other. I listen to some very complicated, heavily layered tracks and I love to lose myself in complex soundscapes. Unfortunately if this were the case that might be a deal-breaker for me. Can it keep up with cluttered tracks, like this or this? Does it treat music with a lot of electronic sound well?
Most of all, I want immersive, generally darker or electronic songs to sound fantastic, definitely not blended or flat. Ex: Homesick by Parov Stelar, Parks on Fire by Trifonic, Rusty Nails by Moderat, Hearts Collide by Little Boots.
That being said, I listen to a wide variety of genres, and of course I'd also like them to work well for games. Right now I'm comparing them against Sennheiser HD598, which seems like an all around good headphone too. I'm mostly worried about the layers thing. Any opinions?
PS: What are the differences between 900 and 900X?
