Ya, as soon as I saw those dual di$connecting cables my face went like this > frown.gif
 

 

Same with the new Senn HD700 probably :\

MLE, do you have any interest in trying out the new AT A900x? I own the AD700 + Mixamp and I'm quite happy with it right now, but wondering if these would be an upgrade from AD700 in the future in terms of imaging, soundstage, and positioning.

Ok, so I went and did something I haven't done in a long time.... I detached the E9, and now I'm running the DT990 off just the E7, lol. The bass is lessened, but now it sounds underdriven, lol.

Damn, like, I want to return these for the DT880 Pro, I do. I just don't wanna get those and then end up not liking them either.

My only solution is the HE4. But damn, I need the Lyr with those, combined, that's enough for almost a Beyer T1. frown.gif

As for the A900x, I have no interest in wing designed Audio Technicas. I HATE wings.

Mad did you ever get a chance to try out the Ultrasone Pro 900s? I've been trying to decide between Ultrasone and Denon for a new gaming headset + mostly rock music, and was hoping you had tried both.

I wanted them earlier on, but went for the D7000 instead. Nowadays, I wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole, as they have massive mid bass, which just gives me headaches. They're known as gods of bass around here, and right now, I could use a little less bass from my headphones.

Aaaw,  I would've loved to hear your opinion on these. But anyway, good to see you active in your thread again.

I've read good things about the A900x soundstage/positioning.  Worth looking into.  I also would be curious hear the new audio technica AIR-T line to see if they keep some of the AD700 soundstage but improve the sig/bass.

Active because I was once again having the urge to get a new headphone. XD

Okay, so I take it back, it was just the song. The DT990 Pro with the E7 is still too bassy for me.

FYI, the new Air T-line has ditched the wings for a full headband.

Yeah, I saw that. I'm curious to how they will sound. Knowing AT, they'll be bass light. Probably gonna be great for hardcore competitive gaming, but not for immersive gaming.

I'm currently playing Metro 2033.  It's got a pretty decent, immersive campaign.  Good pacing - Lots of trecking through creepy tunnels, and stealth-i-ness as well.

Mixamp >> Q701.



:O I forgot about that game

 

time to quickly add that to my christmas list

 

i heard theres a new one coming out too!

I read Dsnuts review about the A900x and was very excited. MLE if you can get past the wings they may be worth looking into like chicolom said.

Naked, I know, I have a feeling that I would seriously like the sound for competitive games, but they'd be too bass light for my taste.

BTW, I tossed the DT990 aside and hooked up my humble KSC35. A breath of fresh air. The sub bass presence is similar (slightly less), but the mid bass isn't drilling my head like the DT990. Obviously not as refined, but almost as enjoyable, tone-wise.
