Main things I'm looking for in a headset are good music performance, good comfort for multi hour play sessions, decent positional sound, and nice immersive rumbles and booms from my assorted World of Tanks tanks.

 

Thanks again all



you just described the mmx 300. its exactly what your looking for.

 

What I would do though, is get a used dt770, since thats what the mmx 300 essentially is. 

 

I haven't seen a lot of direct comparisons but I heard they sound pretty similar, and you can always just get a clip on mic from amazon for $10 

 

theres no way i would pay $350 for those.

I agree ^

 

Yes, the MMX 300 are nice, but overpriced.  They are basically DT770s with a mic that cost several hundred dollars more.  A DT770 (32 ohm version?) + antlion mod mic would save you $$$.

you could find a used dt770 in the sub $150 category if you look hard enough :D

PC gaming, or console?  Do you have surround sound virtualization such as dobly headphone already?

I think I'm gonna go ahead and just not kid myself. I want the D7000 again. IF they somehow manage to go down to $600 new like when I bought them last year ($590!), I'll take that hit and call it a day. We'll see what happens in the coming weeks, as deals are bound to be plentiful during the holidays. They were absolute magic, and caused me to not search for anything better. I did get the HE4 after, but that was because I wanted something open. They were different, but the D7000 was what made my jaw drop every time.

Heck, you can find them NEW at that price if you look hard enough.

I think a Dobly Headphone sound card would be good.  I'm not a pc gamer so I don't know my sound cards.  For music amps, the Matrix M-Stage is commonly paired with K701s.

Hey, thanks for the reply! That amp would cost me more than the headphones themselves cost me.. Is there anything cheaper than would give me the same performance? I know it might be a dumb question, but its just difficult for me to believe it would be another 250 to get the best performance out of these.

You could get a FiiO E10.  The amp section obviously isn't on par with the m-stage but I like it for the price.  An E9 amp double amping the laptops headphone jack doesn't sound as good as an E10 alone.

Do you by any chance know the quality difference I'd hear using the M-Stage over the FiiO E10?
