HELP!! need help deciding between ad700x vs akg k702 for competitive console gaming

  1. SS4 Goku
    The headphone i currently own is the sennheiser hd 558, and i am looking to upgrade my headset to something better for fps competitive console gaming. Based on the research i've done is that the akg k702 would need something better to power it. Could i get away with plugging the akg 702 into the controller for loud enough volume? I own the xbox one

    The 62-Ohm AKG 700 series is somewhat power demanding

    Have you tried removing the black rubber tape from inside the cups of the HD558?
    How about buying a used Astro mix-amp ($50)
    Xbox > Mix-amp > HD558

    The ATH-AD700X is very bass light, so easy on the ears.
