It's a deliberately colored headphone, if you wanted more neutral you should have gotten HE-500, which is still warm too.

Ok, this actually jives with my perception of it, so we'll see.

I want to hear the D7000s combined with this.

It fully supports 3D movies and it even gets the lighting of the cinema right. This looks amazing.

Virtual Surround Sound should also work I believe?

I never understood showing people the vids. Only people with the rift can see those vids properly...

It gives a very good idea of how it works...

 

Plus, if you go cross eyed it goes 3D biggrin.gif

Is the ATH-AD900X the best headphones available for gaming/first person shooters? I'm thinking about buying a pair.

"Best" is subjective. How much are you wanting to spend and are you sure you want am emphasis on competitive FPS gaming?

I'm trying to find headphones that have a big soundstage just like the AD700's as well as the best directional accuracy. I would also love for them to be able to produce deep and accurate bass. $700 is my budget.

AD700 has sharper imaging then AD900, and probably the AD900x too.  You won't find deep bass an any Audio Techinica ''Air" headphones.

The X1s do a good job of deep bass + soundstage and imaging. You may also want to look at the T1 which has nice bass and a big soundstage.

Thanks for the input. Would you say that the AD700x is even better for gaming than the AD700?

I haven't heard the AD700x, and there aren't that many impressions floating around so l can't say. I would search in the dedicated thread about them.

If you're looking looking at deep bass, the Audio Technica AD line is the last thing you should be looking into. No, seriously.

What about the DT 990?

The 990 is bassy, but most of its bass is mid bass, not deep bass. As far as open cans with deep bass goes, the HE400 and LCD2 hit the deepest. The X1 is very good on deep bass, but bigger on mid bass. If I had to choose on bassiness, definitely the X1 has more of what I look for in terms of emphasis and presence.

You can't expect a lot of deep bass from open cans, and they are few and far between. Don't expect it for cheap, either.

My recommendation for you for gaming of all types is the Philips X1. For more balance, yet still very good bass, the K702 65th Anniversary.


In other news:

Dealzon has a lot of sales for PC games. I just got the last DMC (Devil may Cry) for $24. It's the lowest it's been ever, and I didn't wanna wait any longer for it to go down. I knew it'll probably go down like another $10 in a few months, but I can't wait that long. Been waiting to play that game for like ever.

Man... I think the X1's have spoiled me when it comes to the "fun" factor.

 

I've been switching back and forth with the Annies, and it's hard to get used to the Annies sound signature again. For genres like hip hop, techno and trance and some rock, I'm finding the X1's to be much more enjoyable at the moment. And they are super easy to drive as well. TV shows and movies are a blast as well.

 

The X1's also beat out the Annies when it comes to comfort in my opinion. The cushion that rests on top of your head on the X1's is nice and wide, and the clamping is nice and secure. I can instantly put them on and start listening.

 

Not to say that the Annies don't sit securely on my head, but they feel looser and I find I always have to fiddle around with them to get them in the perfect position on my head. Not to mention that the sound of the Annies changes drastically as you move them around on your ears. And the part of the headband that sits on your head is really thin leather with no cushioning and I sometimes have to readjust it because I can feel it digging into my scalp.
