Hello! I was seriously considering the ATH-AD900's for gaming/music. I was looking for something super immersive that treated vocals, environmental ambience and electronically-laced music very well (with no worries about the bass response being super heavy, just "right"). Need them to be very comfortable for 6+ hrs and not fatigue your jaw. I don't actually know the difference between the 900 and the 900X (I would love if someone could enlighten me, I'm having trouble discerning), but to cover all my based I'll cross-post this here too.
I listen to some very complicated, heavily layered tracks and I love to lose myself in complex soundscapes. Can the ATH-AD900X keep up with cluttered tracks, like this or this? Does it treat music with a lot of electronic sound well?
Most of all, I want immersive, generally darker or electronic songs to sound fantastic, definitely not blended or flat. Ex: Homesick by Parov Stelar, Parks on Fire by Trifonic, Rusty Nails by Moderat, Hearts Collide by Little Boots.
That being said, I listen to a wide variety of genres, and of course I'd also like them to work well for games. Right now I'm comparing them against Sennheiser HD598 and ATH-AD900 regular, both seem like all around good headphones too. I'm mostly worried about the layers blending into each other in any way. Any opinions?
