ah you had an STX aswell :) perfect, i like to push it up pretty loud but within reasonable boundaries nothing thats going to blow out my eardrums and leave me deaf haha :)

Like I said before, the A900x is a lean headphone. Its more balanced than the DT770 and has a larger soundstage, but I do not think it will satisfy your taste for bass.

As much as I love the A900x for music, could never really love the wing system or appearance. They also color rock/metal in a way I do not like. Vocals are more forward as well.

AD900x/A900x have really good vocals and soundstage, but they have lean bass. Not sure how you will order them, but the DT770 is probably safer if you choose to return them.

I sold them because I had the AD900x, and they turned the saddest/darkest metal into a cheery kpop track if that makes any sense at all lol

what are the velour ear pads for, is it just just a comfort thing or does it actualy change the way they sound?

and how well does STX drive them? like i said before i do like to crank up the volume

The A900X have a very light grip on the head and the spring that work the wings are a little weak.

The Velour ear pads make the A900Xs have a slightly tighter grip, holds the headphone in place better.

The A900Xs do not have a tight seal around the ears, which I like as the venting keeps the air pressure on the ear drums low.

The Velour do provide a slightly better seal, but the velour should absorb an soften the bass a little.

Also I like the feel of Velour.

interesting, the stuff i was linked seemed to indicate they lean slightly more toward bass with good mids and decent highs

from what i have seen i have to order them from japan wich could be abit of a hassle if i want to send them back

 

i think the best thing to do is get the DT770's if i dont like them returning is easy and then i can fall back on the A900x

i might also give the k550's a try they seem to have some pretty good reviews

Trust me, they have a tight punch in the bass, but its not going to excite you. Its really lean, and its not as detailed or textured as the DT770. When it comes to the A900x/AD900x, mids come first and bass comes last.

 

Its too bad you are not looking for a semi/open headphone, because the X1 might have been the best choice for you!

 

EDIT: The A900x is really good with female vocals! Really like indie music on the A900x. Anything like orchestra or even symphonic metal benefits from the larger soundstage

i have heard alot about the X1 and it does sound like it would be the perfect headphone for me its just that i have other people around watching TV and stuff i dont want to hear whatever they are doing and they dont want hear my music or the sounds of whatever game i might be playing so it really does have to be a sealed headphone, i dont like limiting myself but needs must :/

 

i really dont know what to do i just want to buy some headphones and be happy with them i really dont want to have to mess around sending stuff back and waiting for different things to be delivered

You really cannot go wrong with either.  Just pull the trigger and go from there ;)
