With that said, I prefer the AD900x's to those sets overall. (Although I feel that both the Grado's and the Beyer's excel in certain areas when compared with the Audio Technica's)
Yeah, I agree. I really appreciate the the amount of detail the AD900x provide. I did a comparison with a couple other headphone (Ultrasone Pro900 and Superlux HD668b) and I could really hear so much more detail.
I actually did a comparison while watching a the movie Brave. While listening to the same scene over and over, I was very obvious that the AD900x beat out both those headphones in almost every way.
I was very impressed with the bass in comparison to the PRO900 as it had a similar impact and you could feel the bass, but it made the PRO900 seemed bloated (which is known in the community as having clean bass)
Of course the mids and highs are great, but I was not expecting to hear the amount of detail in the movies environment. It made the background environment come to life and brought the details out that were absent / faint from the other headphones. It did this without distracting from the dialog.
I also just like something that about the Audio Techinca sound signature. It is so clean and airy and i guess refreshing in a way. the AD900x seems to do many thing right. The bass is impressive in my opinion, and in some cases I could "feel" the punch of bass more so than the Pro 900. Very clean and punchy bass.
I am still getting to know the headphone, and I am mainly using it for movies and games and it has been great so far. I was impressed as well with the short time I used them to listen to music as well. I have not had a lot of time to use them, but I have let them burn in since I have been busy lately. But I was impressed in the sound even straight out of the box (compared to the Pro900 straight out of the box)
Great headphone so far and I like them better than the AKG Q701 from what I can remember about them.
