I posted once before about having trouble with my mixamp and astro headset.. well i sent them in and they replaced the mixamp but not the headset. So the mixamp is fixed, i no longer get uneven sound. Still cant really pinpoint where sounds come like they are advertised.. in your review for the ax720, you said that they werent that great. my astro headset is no where near as good as the ax720. I was hoping you could try to get a review out for it. I was hoping to buy the q701, but dont have enough money at the moment for it. So now its between the pc360 and the ad700, which according to your reviews, they have about the same score.. maybe you can compare the two against each other? The mic wouldnt be a big issue. Im hoping the pc360 at least sounds as good as the astro. Im leanning toward the ad700 more cause its cheaper. i really loved my ax720. So im kinda confused how good the ad700s are. sorry if i asked to many questions lol.
Keep in mind MLE mentions many times that the scores he gives aren't to be used in direct comparison with each other, but rather an objective number as to how well the HP compares in that aspect of its use (ie: competitive, fun, ect.) If you liked the sound qualities of the AX720 headset then I would say that you might be let down with the AD700. I wouldn't say that the AX720 has "good" bass, but it is quite plentiful. Going to a HP that has been described with "anemic" bass would be a mistake IMHO (...but I have no idea what you're looking for). After owning the AX720, and having auditioned the AD900, I would say that they two completely different beasts.... although the AD900s were superior in every aspect except for how much bass is throws out. The quality of bass was better, and had much better definition, but little to no impact. I've read that the AD700s have even less.
Having already owned two headsets you should have a pretty good idea of what characteristics (bass, mids, highs, soundstage ect.) you're looking for and listing them will help the community in suggesting what HPs to check out/research further.
