Will the A900X be a substantial upgrade over the AD700? Is it worth the upgrade? Thanks for the comments/suggestions.
The A900x has good bass, great mids, nonsibilant sparky treble, a decent soundstage for a closed phone and is airy. Bass can get boomy on badly recorded music. They also are very detailed and do scale some with better equipment. The A900X's are great headphones. You could also consider the AD900X from Amazon Japan if you want open headphones as it is $138.00 right now with $30 for shipping through Tenso.
