That's surprising--unless you're talking used.  I've seen a few sales of late where the M50's have dropped just below $100, but never for the 840's.

The KRK is just better--and a good deal smaller.  The HM5 is OK but it is also bland and lacks the clarity, detail and depth of both the 8400 and SRH 840.  To me it's the "you could do worse" can of its class.

Anyone knows how the hd 598 fares in performance against the a900x. Like in terms of bass, vocals, lows, mids and highs. Can't actually find a direct comparison between them since the a900x is relatively new and has not much reviews on it too. =/

Yup, used. Have not got the highest budget here.

Lets see the HD598s are open and the A900Xs are closed. I own the A900Xs and HD558s with the black rubber tape removed.

What are you going to use to drive the headphone?

If you are considering used, you should include that information when seeking advice and input. 

 

Everyone has been on a tight budget at one time or another.

I thought I did o_O oh well, next time. Thanks for the tip. I'm a high school student with social obligations, saving for a car, etc. Can barely scrounge up enough cash for something for me. Weekend cashiers don't exactly make 6 figures XD So, anything you'd recommend now that the door to used headphones has been opened?

If you can get a pair of 840's in good shape and with full kit for under $100, jump on them.  Just understand that even with their mid-bass hump, they are not basshead cans.  They have excellent mids, which translates to great vocals.

post #18549 of 29490

Ok that's fine. I'm not a basshead, I just like a little extra oomph behind my bass. Vocals are definitely important. Thanks for the advice I have a set all lined up in decent shape for $100 :D

I'm going to drive them ampless and probably straight out from my galaxy s3 or my pc which has Creative PCI Express Sound Blaster® X-Fi™ soundcard (not very familiar with soundcards though)

 

P.s. I'm relatively new to these kind of stuffs

 

Edit: Oh and I might plan to get a FiiO E17 if I got the money... and isit true that the hd598 isn't able to pair with the e17?

Can't see any reason the HD598 would not work with the E17.

The HD598 is only 50-Ohm

My HD558 (50-Ohm) works great (easily) with my E11, which is about equal amp. wise to the E17.

Just about any headphone should work well with the E17.

The E17 will improve the headphone audio quality over the X-fi sound card.

Need some suggestions for well rounded over ear headphones for mostly gaming, but with quite a bit of music/movies as well. I need something that is not bass dead (major complaint of AD700's from what I read), with a closed back that doesn't leak too much sound.

 

Budget is $150, $250 if the purchase is through Bestbuy.com(Preferred due to a $100 gift card).

 

I have little knowledge in this area, but I was looking at some audio technica ATH-A700x as well as ATH-A900x.


Slightly off topic, but I will be purchasing an audio card shortly as well as I do not have one at the moment. My primary choice right now is a refurbished Asus Xonar ST. Figured I would add that bit in there as it may influence suggestions.

Thx for the quick feedback. So isit unfair to actually compare the hd598 with the a900x? Since 1 is open and the other closed. But I have seen some people mentioned that the akg 550 being a closed headphone has almost the same soundstage as the hd598. Is that the case also for the a900x?
