With all the hoopla about the AKG K7XX, I'm trying to process all the info and come to a decision. I would really appreciate feedback.
My primary use - or the use that I weigh more heavily - for headphones will be gaming, a combination of competitive fps (COD, Halo), sports games (FIFA), racing games (Forza) and some single player games. I currently have a 2014 Mixamp Pro and Audio Technica AD700. I have had my eye on the Q701 for some time, and was planning on purchasing it at some point. The release of the K7XX has changed things.
Considering these things would the AKG K7XX be a no-brainer over the Q701? I could always try the Q701 pads to see if I prefer them for competitive gaming over the K7XX pads. Plus the AKG K7XX has a more comfortable headband.
I will try the AKG + mic with the Mixamp Pro alone, but if I find it lacking power, what DAC/Amp would you guys recommend I pair with the K7XX? I would like to keep the price in the $100 range.
