Great guide Mad Lust. On Amazon the ad700x is considerably cheaper then the ad700 and I'm not sure which to buy. Anyone here try both of them and know what the difference in sound is. I don't have that much money since I'm in highschool so saving is important to me.

Essentially the same headphone. Get the AD700x. A trusted friend tested both side by side, and couldn't hear a lick of difference between them. They basically just changed the aesthetics, it seems. The reason the AD700 has jumped up on price is because it's discontinued.

Honestly though, I'd get the HD558 instead or PC360 if you plan on using a mic.

Not really going to use mic since I don't like talking much and on PC it's all text anyways. So if I want the best possible sound I should go for the AD700x right? Also will I need a soundcard for my PC if I get these?

The AD700X will provide great sound, as long as the sound does not require a lot of bass to sound good.

The AD700X works fine with out a sound card, but chances are a sound card would improve audio quality over the motherboard's on-board audio.

The all round looks good, but they're in a different price range than ad700, from where I live I can afford only the Fidelio ( I really like them, but i'm disappointed with the non removable pads, i've never used cans so I don't know how much this can be important) and the MA900 ( that don't look nice to me, but I need performance and from the guide they're great so I don't care).

The fact is that gaming is much more important to me, I thought with ad700 I could have the best headphone for gaming and using a funnier headphone for everything else.

But maybe with MA900 I can have the best of both worlds, how do they compare to ad700 in gaming?, I mean, the difference is noticeble?

So, Sennheiser actually DID repair my headphones for me. I also have the Asus Xonar U3! I can now do surround sound! I just need to find a game to test it with...

So I'm looking for a bassy, open, headphone that still has solid soundstage for gaming, reading through this has made it a toss up between the 990, x1, and he400. I don't mind buying an amp but I already have a xonar essence stx that is amped. I guess it would be plenty for the x1 and 990,but I'd need more juice for he400.

How would you directly compare them, trying to decide if he400 worth extra costs and equipment.

Also I'll be wearing them for long periods of time, and I have an extremely large head, my pc360 extended all the way barely fits, so comfort and fit are important.

I'd say the X1, but if you have an "extremely large head" you might need to bend the headband to make it fit.

Okay... after extensive neck exercising (and some PEDs), I think I am now ready for the Alpha Dog...
