Personally I own a DSS, Mixamp 5.8, and a Recon3D USB, I like the recon best with a tube amp plugged into the headphone jack.


They have some surround..they don't just sound like a stereo headphone..i agree ecjcc should get some sort of surround sound unit.. I use the rdac because it's got good positional audio with a decent size sound stage.. sennheiser hd 558 and a mix amp or a dss1 or 2 would do him!

I understand how much better open headphones sound for precision, but it's just not an option because I can't use open headphones at home and then use a completely different sound on the road, I need consistency.


I tried the DT770 Pro 250 ohms but the bass is extremely heavy =/

 

Someone told me that the NAD VISO HP50's are very good for gaming.

Why not ibasso?

 

I personally always preferred ibasso's offerings over the fiio stuff.

There are, 

 

CAL!2 

KOSS PRODJ200

A700x

HM5

 

and many others

Would I miss out a lot of quality going from MA900 to AD700? How much difference is there is stage sizes

^That much difference...

Woah lol even if I really want the widest airy soundstage with good detail? That can really mimic a huge open space? And don't mind a loss of bass?

Also I see you own the K612 pro how do they fit in?

I meant that's how much soundstage you will lose when going to the A700 from the MA900.

The K612 is no slouch in regard to soundstage and imaging. Its not as wide as the K702/Q701and K712/Annie, but its still pretty wide. I'd imagine it would score a 9/9.25 in that regard compared to the 9.5/10 of those others.

Put some K702 pads on the K612, however, and the soundstage opens up a little more.

I just got my AKG K712 and Beyerdynamic DT-990-Pro-250 headphones. I am so blown away at how good they sound! These are my first headphones I have purchased besides gaming headsets, lol never again. So glad I learned about this website and about true headphones. Shout out to MLE for the guide, you rock man!!!

So just so I'm not confused the MA900 has a wider stage? I might look into the 612 pro

Yes the MA900 is wider than the closed A700. Its even slightly wider than the stock K612.

But aren't you looking into closed headphones? You do know the K612 is open, right? o_O

Sorry I meant the open AD700 I'm such a plum lol

I'm debating between them and MA900 depending on soundstage and the closest to mimic and open space butvaldo with good quality sound. I don't mind losing a bit of bass for a wider stage.
