I was thinking the same thing, but its a lot of money, $50 off the original price. But their is also a sense of pride when buying something around this price brand new. At least for me.
And some one tell me - Are the Razer Carcharias head phones closed or open? If they are open, that's kind of really good news because they work really well to me with my metal music so the AD700's would as well
I use them mostly for games; as for music metal, classic rock, classical, jazz, electronica, occasional trip-hop/jungle/house. They are accurate/sharp, some people say it's fatiguing but i find it refreshing since it doesn't mask any of the sounds.
I do have a pioneer elite amp & cambridge soundworks (pre-Creative) surround setup in my living room, so when i dont need to be at my computer that's usually where i listen to music though.

The DG hp amp would do a very poor job with powering the AKG 702s.He would be better off with the AD700 or some other easier to driven headphone.
True, they wouldn't sound the best w/ the DG alone; but he could save up & get an amp w/ a line-in later. A Bellari HA540 is a good choice, I think Rolls sells it for a little over $200 if memory serves.
kinda moot anyway since its out of the current price range he's looking at.
the AD700 & A700 are both great for the $. The A700 has more bass, the AD700 has better positional audio & is a little more comfortable. Choose whatever's more important to you.Edited by pale_neon - 5/30/11 at 10:18pm
