HD558 vs. AD700X for my situation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Which of these is better for my needs? I will be using this mainly for playing battlefield 4 competitively. However I will also be using them for monitoring my commentarys that I record for youtube and for just everyday use (watching youtube videos and playing other games.) That is what I need in headphones and I have ruled them down to these two headphones. Which would be better. Please keep in mind I will proably spend 5-12 hours a day with these on so comfort is important but I would not put it above the audio quality. Also I do not have a dedicated soundcard yet but I am planning on getting the xonar DG. Thanks in advanced

I have the slightly older ATH-AD700s, but i do prefer my HD558s over the AD700s.

The HD558s offer more bass, the HD558s are not "bassy" headphones, but they still offer more bass then the AD700s.

Amazon has HD558s from $92 to $122.

The Asus Xonar DG & DGX can easily drive the 50-Ohm HD558s.
