Wait, you have the E17? I'd keep that and use it WITH whatever soundcard you get. The E17 is both an spdif and amp, both which Xonar cards should work with.

Been thinking of getting the AKG K702's for gaming and music but would it be good with the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD or would i need a desktop amp?

Just wondering, has anyone ordered from this guy on ebay? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-MDR-MA900-Stereo-Headphones-Full-Open-Type-/331005616312?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item4d1178e0b8 I'm considering these but I'm not sure on the seller. Also, how much do these leak? The only headset/headphone I've had was the Audio technica a700 (closed) and the turtlebeach hpx (semi open) both of which don't leak much sound out at all... If anyone has any apple earpods, can you compare them to the sony headphones.. I just want to get an idea of how much they leak, for example, the earpods @100% would probably be the max for me for sound leakage.

The MA900 is the leakiest headphone I've ever heard. THERE IS A GAPING HOLE BETWEEN THE DRIVER AND THE PADS. LOL.

PM me, I've been tossing around the idea of an E17 as my work amp. We can talk details.

So a safer bet would be something like the dt 990 pro 250 and sennheiser 558s? I'm looking for something in the < $160 price range that doesn't leak across a closed room that is decently sized.

Are you looking for immersion in gaming? Sub bass is nonexistent on the 600.

So the hd 600s are the ad 700 s on steroids?

I haven't heard the ad700, but if you are mostly gaming, the 600 is probably not the set for you. They're wonderful for classical and rich vocal music, but I wouldn't spend so much on a gaming set. The ad700 has been proven to be great for competitive gaming while the X1 is much more immersive.

Headphones that you can't go wrong with as all-rounders IMO:

 

- Fidelio X1

- Sennheiser HD558

- CAL

- Sony MA900

- Beyer DT990

- AKG K702 Annies

 

Just a handful of headphones that will play nice across any type of material you throw at them. They're not the best at what they do, but certainly they are very good for whatever you want to listen to.

The DT990 won't do quite as well with vocals, as they are heavy on the bass and treble. The rest are pretty solid.
I'd throw in the Koss Sportapro with the KSC75 clips in there as well.
