The Q701 can be driven just fine from a Fiio E10, E11, or E17 though, so it doesn't cost a fortune to use them properly. I'm very happy with mine used with an E17.

I wouldn't risk it...Many people said that they are even harder to drive than HD600/650

I want my headphones to sound perfect to what they are capable of (or at least 90%), not just sound fine. My budget isn't huge so I try to avoid amp-picky cans as much as possible

I would also like it know between HD598 and AD900X, which one would I chose. I am a metalhead, will mostly be using it for gaming and rock music. I plan to use a modmic and turn it into a headset.

Honestly, these 2 headphones are not meant for rock music. If you really have to choose, then pick AD900X and then amp it well or EQ to get more bass.
