A40's Vs. AD700x

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, I am wondering what would be better for my sitiuation. Either buy the ad700 or astro a40s. I know the ad700x audio wins by a mile but there are some other factors that concern me. I have heard that the ad700x is quite uncomfortable, is this true? If so that will definitly effect which I choose because I play for long hours at a time. Also I stream a lot with webcam and I dont want extremely ugly headphones on, are they ugly. Which headphone would be better for me? Also if the ad700x is all those things that I have heard, is there something better then it and the astro a40's still in teh same pricerange? Thanks

A40's are garbage, I have the closed version of the AD700x , The soundstage is amazing...there is no better in that price range, kills alot of high-end headphones soundstage wise....but the bass response isn't good. If you want a bit more bass go with HD598...or even more bass, go with DT990's or Fidelio X1's.... if you want it for only positional/directional sound go with the AD700x..

There are tons of pictures and videos out there of the AD's....just look at them...

 

If you have a big head they will be al-right, if you have a small head they will bother you...

I was looking at the hd598's, how much worse of a sound stage will they have?

the HD598's soundstage is almost as good as the AD700x, with the AD's having a slight edge, not that much though, I would say the HD598 is a more balanced and overall a better headphone. it also has a better bass response than the AD's.
