He wanted one for music! The AD700 has a very poor genre bandwidth. A900x on the other hand is way more musical, you can find it on buydig frequently for $99.
Just because it is closed does not mean it has a poor soundstage. I've seen people hail the pricier FA-003 as the best bang/buck headphone, and that it sounds like an open headphone. Well.. I can assure you they haven't tried the A900x!
In general, these are my conclusions between different Audio Technica headphones I have owned.
For competitive gaming: AD700 > A900x > AD900x
For usual gaming: A900x > AD900x > AD700
For music: AD900x >A900x > AD700
A900x is certainly mid-fi worthy. You won't believe how good they are until you buy them, especially at $99!
Check often, as they come and go quickly around the internet.
