Is it better to hook it up to my mobo or the Logitech speakers? I would love to listen to music using these cans at its maximum power!!

Motherboard would be better quality than the subpar headphone out of  PC speakers. Don't give yourself tinnitus.

Thanks! By the way, nice set of headphones. How do you like to use one of your babies A700X personally? And how big is the difference between a700x and a900x?

The A900X is quite a bit better in my opinion, The A700X sounds rather like a bass shy or bass neutral A900X. Worth the money since the A900X regularly sells for $150 in the US.

Which explains why A700X is a better flat-response headphone, no? I produce music daily and chose A700X over DT-770 PRO and A900X since the latter two have extra bass and not the flat-EQ I'm looking for

I would choose the KRK KNS8400 over both for a flat headphone(though it looks anything but in the freq graphs, which is strange).

The A700X is the Art monitor version. Unless you mean the older A700 one, in which case, I don't know, I've never tried the A700.

What's Art monitor? I keep seeing that crap everywhere. Is it just a marketing term for the revised version of A700?

It's just their branding moniker, all ATH "A" series are called Art Monitor, at least my AD900 box had that stamped.

Axxx series = Art.
