New cans: MA900 or HD 598

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am planning on buying a new pair of cans and was wondering whether I should get the MA900 or the HD 598s.

Here is a list in which I give highest to lowest priority: gaming, movies/tv series, music (mostly metal, rock, classical).

I do not have a sound card but I do have an astro mixamp (don't know how good this thing is).

The ma900 is basically a HD598 with a larger soundstage, better imaging, more bass, faster drivers, more refinement, less treble, more efficient (no need for amp). The DT990/880 are both better for metal though.

I probably would have decided in the MA900 already if it didn't look really flimsy, how comfortable is it compared to the HD 598, do you know?

 

Also if anyone else can confirm or share opinions on what Trunks is saying here that would be greatly appreciated.

Theyre equally comfortable, but many will tell you that the ma900 is more comfortable. Take this question to the MDR MA900 appreciation thread if you want more opinions.

I feel as though that thread and your opinions are bias though.
