For used headphones/amps/DAC's, with the reputation system on the classified and AWD categorizing the condition, seems like a no-brainer again.


You have still got to watch out buying a used car..take a qualified mechanic with you..some times too good to be true deals are not what they seem..might need a new chassis!

Oh agreed, which is why I got mine from a dealer.  I could have maybe saved a little more, but it was worth the peace of mind.

When you buy 'like new' you may save some money, but you forget one thing: no warranty (unless specifically stated). Those Amazon warehouse deals have no warranty.

True, but they do have a return policy, if you have any initial defects that you notice.  Down the road though, you may be out of luck, like you mention.

Hi :D

How good are the HD518 for gaming? are the HD 558/598 significantly better for gaming?

Also How do the HD518 compare to k240 & dt990 for gaming?

Thanks

I would go for the HD558 or AD700x for gaming. both have a large soundstage and both are pretty comfy.

if you are running low on money you could grab Superlux HD EVO.

I am running a little low on money frown.gif
So the superlux HD evo are better than the HD518 for gaming?
I thought the HD518 would be closer to the HD558/598 as they share the same driver

Hi,

I just ordered a new gaming pc with Asus Xonar DGX sound card.

As I'm going to play first person shooters most of the time, I want to buy the Audio-Technica AD700x.

Is the Asus Xonar DGX sound card a good configuration for this headphone or can you recommend a better one?

 

Thanks and greeting from Germany!

You can output dolby headphone through s/pdif and connect external dac+amp for even better sound, but the card alone is great.
