Audio Technica is making gaming headphones so those should be interesting

I can vouch. Fidelio X1 headphones are awesome. I was using Sen HD598 and switched to the X1.

I did some research and found this:

 

AKG K 240 MK II (130€)

A700X (~200€?)

 

Can anyone give another Option or just say if these are good for a bit competetive Gaming? Thanks

He does have an Xonar DG

 

Audio Technica AG-1? That's the gaming headset version of the A700X / A900X...

 

Sorry to sound like I'm shilling since I just got a review loaner, but just though I should point it out.

Absolutely gorgeous looking can. Will try to get a video up of this in the coming weeks, but first impressions as far as sound goes is that this thing sounds like how I remember the A900X sounds. Apparently the 3D wing mechanism on this version has been tightened up a little as well...

Ah, cool. Not a fan of the A900, but let me know how it fares.

Hope you get the ADG1 at some point, as that's be the one I'd be most interested in as a gaming headset with the AD700 sound.

Guys, just put up my Mixamp 2011 up for $45 total/shipped. Check my sig.

Have no need for it since I have the 5.8.
post #20106 of 37441

I might be a little late to the party but is it confirmed that the MA900 is now discontinued?  It's labeled as such on Amazon.  If that's correct is there a replacement?

Hey MLE, how noticeable is the hissing when using your wireless 5.8 mixamp? BTW, great deal on that 2011 Mixamp.

I was looking to upgrade my Astro A40 headsets to some audio-technica ad900x. I know that the ad700 are widely recommended by a ton of gamers but I haven't seen many people recommend the ad900x version. I have hear both side saying they are good and some say they are not good or that the ad700x are better to stick with. Will buying the ad900x be worth upgrading to or do the ad700x perform better?  I did see Mad Lust Envy say that he wasn't a fan of the a900 but is that just the close can version? If anyone could give me any opinions or help I would appreciate I ate ited

It's been mentioned many times that the AD900 performs worse than the AD700 for gaming.
post #20110 of 37441

OK I started looking back further and seen you said to stick to the 700.  Thanks for the help,  very much appreciate it

If you want an upgrade from the AD700, the K702/Q701 will give you that. It won't be a subtle difference like going from the 700 to 900. The Q701/702 is everything the AD700 wishes it were.
post #20112 of 37441

Both the AD700 and AD900 (haven't heard "X" versions) are too lean to excel at immersive fun gaming.  Which leaves their strengths at competitive soundwhoring.  The AD700 does a slightly better job at that though, because the soundstage is a tad more focused and with a little more separation.  So the AD900 is kind of in an akward place.  Don't get me wrong, the AD900 is still very good for competitive, it's just not as good as the AD700 which is crazy good.

 

Rather than get either the AD700 or AD900 I would jump up to something like Q701, which is much more full and immersive while still being great for competitive gaming.

Hey guys. I said earlier I am looking to get new headphones and it has to be from newegg since I have a gift card there. I've narrowed it down to the astro a40s and mixamp for $180, CAL for $75, HD598s for $180 or the HD558s for $120. I'm trying to stay under $200 and a lot of the options recommended are way above that or not available on newegg. Which of these would give me the most fun, immersive gaming?

CAL > HD558 > HD598

 

This is interms of immersiveness. Obviously the HD598 trouces the other 2 when all you want is imaging.

The HD558 is the most balanced of the bunch however and for $120, it's a damn good buy IMO.

Awesome thanks! How would the astro a40s be compared to those? Or not worth it.
