I've never before used the original AD700 or AD900's by Audio Technica. On a whim I decided I would get rid of any gaming headphones I had and jump into a real pair of headphones. I was very happy with the AD700x's ($159) but I have Amazon Prime and noticed the AD900x's were only about 50 dollars more ($209) so I decided to give it a shot as well to pick which one I enjoy more.
The first thing I notice between the two is that the AD900x has a fuller sound. It has more thump in the bass and seems more balanced, but I find that listening to them fatigues me, where as the sound signature of the AD700x seem to fit me a lot more. I've always been the type of person who usually turns bass down and raises treble.
From all the research I've done, the popular opinion is that the AD900 does everything the AD700 does, but better. Usually the only justification for buying the AD700's seem to be the price point, which is irrelevant for me at the moment.
The AD700x and AD900x are both redesigned versions of the original, so build quality and fit are virtually identical.
Anyone have any advice for me?
I got the AD900x about 2 1/2 days after getting the AD700x... Can burn in here play any role?
tldr version; The AD900x has a fuller sound but fatigues me, where as the AD700x's sound signature seems to fit me more. Is something wrong with me?
