Will A900x be good choose for Jazz/blues listening ( primary use  )and some light gaming ( non -FPS , non compatitive )  and some video watching at home , i know ad900x will be good for gaming but i need closed ones , will A900x gain more from adding fiio e09k or e17 for jazz/blues listening ?Do you think sony Mdr-v6 or 7506 alternative to A900x if it is not suitable for jazz/blues

 

PS : I  like to hear neutral sounds ,and not like bass

 

Thank You

I like using my ATH-A900Xs for a lot of different audio, I consider them very musical headphones, the music bleeds just a little, but the over all sound (balanced) is nice.

I added the Hifiman HE Velour ear pads ($10+shipping) to my A900Xs.

The A900Xs are easy to drive, the FiiO E17 has a lower output impedance (>1-Ohm), then the E09K (10-Ohm).

Technically the >1-Ohm impedance of the E17 is a little more desirable for 42-Ohm headphones like the A900Xs.

In my Opinion yes.

The only issue is that depending on your ears, they might get warm after a while. The original Pads did cause some sweat after gaming for me. The 3d sound image is good (not like Sony MA900 or HD800 but noticeable wide).

The A900X are easy to drive. Did not benefit greatly from an amp.

this depends 7506 has more energy in the highs then the V6 and the 7506. I would go for the V6, but it has a bit more bass then the 7506. Or its just the more in high energy on the 7506. I could just be the age of the earpads when i had them.

The V6 might be to bass heavy then. I personally would recommend the AKG612, but they are open.

Great review!  As someone who bounces between Beyer DT 880's and the A900X (and occasionally 7506's), I agree almost completely with the reviewer's assessment of the A900X.

 

I too have a large head and can only manage to wear headphones designed to accommodate that.  I would also give the Beyerdynamics the edge in comfort, but I appreciate the design that AT utilizes to take pressure off "headache-inducing" areas.

 

With sound, it's hard to compare the 900X with the 880's, since one is closed & one is semi-open.  I would rate the 880's a little higher in almost all regards.  The 900X's exhibit a LOT more bass, which is nice for movies, games, and even a lot of music.  In that vein, I would call the 880's more balanced overall, but it depends on what you prefer.

 

The 900X's are a lot easier to drive than the 880's, despite my choice of the 32 ohm version of the 880's.

 

For around $200-$230 at the moment, the A900X's are a steal.
