I thought you didn't like the LCD2? What changed?
I gave the AD700 a higher MP score due to the extreme accuracy it has in positioning. Only the DT770 Pro 80 matches it, but due to its muddy sound, it obviously doesn't work as well.
Again my scores aren't meant to be directly compared. They're there as a reference as to how I felt they performed for me, and not how they performed against one another. The HD598 is a better overall headphone than the AD700.
As amazing as the K701 is just off the Mixamp for gaming, its hard to tell people to buy it just for gaming purposes. They deserve an amp for every other purpose. The HD598 comes close and has an easier time unamped.
Yep that's right. Check the last post on this page http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/453116/audeze-lcd-2-orthos/12630
Let's assume money isn't an object here (as I'm sure you've gathered with me ) and I want the absolute best for competitive gaming straight into the 5.8 mixamp, i.e no other amp, to remain wireless. Which is best with mic and which is best without?
