The A700's are the closed back variant of the AD700's.

7ranslucen7, but are these a excellent sounstage? They are closed back. I prefer this because it is isolates, but I need soundstage for that games.

Iceman23, my priority is gaming, but I also want an excellent quality in music pleasure. This is the problem.

Thanks everybody for excellents posts and pacience with me.

Moltar, people say that A700 are poor for gaming. If this is not true, it would be the choice.

List of priority for me:

1 -Gaming
1.2 - Music (any one).
2 - Movies.

Preferences: extra comfort, closed-back for isolation, comfy, comfy and comfy!

Well, if you also want a great music experience we have to determine if you're willing to buy an amp. And a concrete budget would really help Without an amp, closed back, and also for music - I would go for the Denon D2000.

I have both the AD700 and Denon 1100 along with 8 other headphones.
I will say the AD700 have better soundstage, but they have terrible bass.
The A700s are decent, not worth the price, considering their bass is actually not that much better than the AD700s, they go from anemic to punch. They will sound decent at best for music because of this.

I believe you will enjoy the Denon 1100 much more, if you have the right soundcard you can EQ for better soundstage. But they will be better overall if you are using them for Gaming + Music. I use the D1100 for team fortress 2, and AD700s or 555's for Battlefield 2.

I loved my A700's for gaming. The bass is not outstanding, no can in the $100 price ranges will be, but for that price bracket, I found no equal in other closed cans.

Seeing as he is not budget limited, I find the D2000 a big increase from the D1100. D5000 is nearly the same as D2000 to me. I think you will be wowed by their sound with music, I know I was. For this reason I can't recommend A700 - they simply have no bass

Thanks guys! Your posts are very useful for me.

Please, keep posting if you can.

Well, I confess that I am more confuse now

I would like test these cans for I may to choice the one that more please me.

I think the general consensus is that A700/AD700 is great for gaming, but due to lack of bass is not the best choice for overall enjoyment with music and movies.

The Denon headphones are closed, amazing with music, and pretty good for gaming. They also will work great with just your soundcard. Depending on your price limit, you could get any in their line. However, I think the D2000 model is the sweet spot - that's where the magic starts. D5000 ~= D2000 to me, not worth the extra price. D7000 is a step up if you really want to pay that much.

I agree, they have no bass. But we are talking about tripling the money spent on cans. In my opinion the OP should start small, IE the A700's, and than work up to the D2000 to gain a sense of sound and confirm his likes and dislikes.
