Help! I don't know if I should get ad1000x or fidelio x2s. 80 percent gaming 20 percent music long hour sessions.

How does the AD900x compare to the AD1000 (NOT the AD1000x)? And how do I need to do the rubber band mod?

AD1000 has a more forward sound and no angled drivers. It has cleaner treble and more clarity overall, and better imaging but in a smaller soundstage.

is the soundstage good enough for gaming?

And is the AD900x a bit harsh sounding? Im looking for the best gaming headphone around 60 euros

I've listened to a lot of harsh sounding headphones. The AD900x isn't one of them, and I greatly preferred it over the HD598 and SHP9500 for the soundstage and mids. Good comfort too. I even think there was more bass, but I'm not sure, and they're all bass light anyways. If I had to pick one headphone $300 or under (not including sales), it'd be the AD900x. It's the best price-to-performance headphone I've ever listened to. The ONLY step up for me is the HD650. The X2's are nice too, but were too boomy and lacked clarity in comparison.

 

The AD900x is better than the AD1000x and AD2000x for gaming if you like soundstage size. The latter are more forward sounding and not as good for the price in my opinion.

Are the mids of the AD900x forward, neutral or recessed? And you said that the imaging of the AD900x is worse than the AD1000, but is the imaging of the AD900x still good enough for FPS games?

It's good enough and much more immersive because it's in a larger space. You should be able to judge the distance of sounds better on it too because of this. The AD line is known for forward mids, which I think is a plus.

If it matters, I thought the AD1000 had a bit harsher highs than the AD900x.
