Sound card advice - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I own both AD700S and rx700s and i havent put my rx700s on sense >_> unless i listen to dubstep.

also AD700S need alot of burn in, same for rx700s. ive already noticed a big change within the 3 days ive had my ad700s playing music 24/7 even when sleeping, as for the rx700. the bass and soundstage widened aswell.

the rx700 are headphones that are good, but dont excel at anything.


the ad700 excel at soundstage, classical/acoustic music, but lack in bass, but then again, i dont care if i cant feel the bass, aslong as i can feel it (and i play bass guitar to LOL)

some people dont like the ad700's airy sound, but thats not because its ad700s, thats because its open backed headphones.


BUT remember every person is DIFFERENT with there ears, only you can actually make the sound decision, and all else fails, easy to return.


btw make a new account at newegg use NEWCUSTOMER10 promo code and its like 85$ for the headphones, and then make a free trial with shoprunner for free 2 day shipping then cancel, *Lol

I think RX700s can be useful as an inexpensive reference point to compare other headphones with, though, so I'm glad to have a pair.

Also I think burn in is an exaggerated phenomenon. Both of my headphones made these sporadic scratching noises for the first few hours, so it exists on some level, but when that went away, nothing else happened. If something did change, I wouldn't be able to tell you.

Also the DG should be fine. I don't believe in one sound card being better for a certain purpose either. After all, they all sound the same in my computer.
Honestly, it makes sense for me to start in a low price range anyway, as I haven't known anything but turtle beaches when it comes to over ear (I realize after using 2 models that I was better off cranking up the tv volume, holding up some cellophane wrap to my ear, and calling it hi-fi). Thanks for your frank advice.
