This is my first post on Head-Fi, despite having browsed several times in the past. I'm currently really torn between AD900X and the MA900 because of your review. I was convinced that I was going to buy the AD900X, but it seems the the MA900 might be the better choice for me.
I honestly listen to quite a wide range of music, but I'd have to say that most of the time it's electronic (dubstep/DNB), rap, rock and metal. I do listen to music that isn't that bass heavy though and I'm worried that the more bland treble of the MA900 might not give that "sparkle" to the music. This is the first time I ever buy higher-end headphones, so I'm just trying to do my research before I drop the cash on a pair. Also, whilst I do listen to bass-heavy music, I don't enjoy overpowering bass. I actually dislike using the Beats that several of my friends have because the bass just feels too forced.
Based on this, do you guys think I should go for the MA900 or AD900X?
EDIT: Also, just for a point of reference, I'm currently using Sennheiser CX280 IEM's.
EDIT 2: Damn, this is so hard. The more research I do the more headphones I find and the further away I get from choosing a pair I want. I'm also looking at the Phillips L1 Fidelio now, because they seem to be even more suited to bass-heavy music than the MA900's.
