I feel kinda bad that I'm dragging this question out again, but I ended up spending the last week in the hospital and now that I'm out I went back to trying to find a pair of headphones. The main uses are going to be rock, jazz, gaming, movies (pretty much in that order). My original budget was $150 so the DT990s are more wishful thinking, but I'm still keeping them on my short list.
I like open headphones, but I'm afraid the AD700s just won't have enough bass, so I'm leaning toward the closed A700s. My two main questions are...do they sound good? And are they comfortable? I found Sennheisers to be way too tight. I plan to power them straight out of an X-fi Titanium HD for now.
Also, are there any others I should look at? I'm trying to find something that's more fun, as opposed to reference.
