What could be the excellent headphone with Asus Xonar essence stx sound card?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I was recently a headset user, but who found the path of choosing mic+headphone. I mostly use headphone gears for listening music mostly and games. I'm not sure if I would like heavy-bass, but I want sound quality to be great and clear. I also want a comfortable wear and nice design.

 

There were three options I found:

 

1) Sennheiser 598

2) AKG Q701

3) Audio-technica ad700

 

I am considering to take one of those 3, but I'm always welcomed to hear other gears too.

 

I want to hear what is good and what is bad on each gears and what could be the best solution for my pairing with soundcard.

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

 

Xonar STX won't have any issues driving those headphones.  
AD700 doesn't seem to be a great contender for HD598 or Q701.

I think AD900X vs Q701 vs HD598 are real contenders.

 

HD598 has a smooth sound signature while Q701 seem to be more detailed and also brighter.

 

Best Luck!

ATH-AD700 is very bass light.

Add the Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro 250-Ohm to your list.
