Dang dude - you had me excited there for a second! I have some 7520's en route, and I'm sending my MA900's back (they have a defect in the headband). I'm hoping the 7520's meet all my needs for a home headphone, but I've been reading about lack of soundstage.
I may have to order another set of the MA900's depending on the sound of the 7520's. However, I'm not crazy about the physical design of the MA900: non-replaceable cable, sliders that move too easily, too-narrow headband that causes some discomfort (and is basically a piece of non-replaceable foam that will wear out), and earpads that don't feel right after extended use (they don't cause pain, but they give me an uneasy feeling after a couple of hours - not sure what it is).
All that said, they produce outstanding sound for gaming and are excellent for music as well. Maybe there will be an improved version? I'm definitely sold on the technology of the drivers/ear cups.
