But, they aren't a BAD choice. They are still very nice.
Monitors huh? What do you think of those KRK KNS6400 I heard about.

Ad700s are more comfy, and are a litter bit better for footsteps and the like, in FPS games.

AD700s are basically a comfier version of M50s with no bass. IF you are into Rap and stuff, or just like bass, Ad700s are bad.
I like clarity. I like to be able to hear each pluck or strum on an acoustic guitar track. and I like to be able to hear the slight changes and character of a singers's voice.

I think you want to look into Studio monitors then. I'd suggest M50s as i own them myself, and playing back FLAC Metallica i can hear every little detail, even small distortions in the recording and background noise/echo, compared to 320.

But then, any studio monitors in that price bracket are all good, and designed for REPRODUCTION, not comfort/soundstage.

So what would need to be spent to get the best of both worlds?

I'm not sure what the return policy of the AD700s are, but if you can try them out, and send them back if you dont like, that is optimal.

I know this is the devil, but the super expensive Beats by Dr Dres are accually very similar to the M50s or other studio monitors (abit alot more expensive).

Go down to a store and listen to the Dr dre, see if you like the bass.

If you like it, look into some monitors.

Personally i find my M50s fine for gaming, and after a few weeks they don't hurt my head.

But if you've ordered your Ad700s, i think you'll be ok.

I'd say $500-600 including soundcard.

Personally for gaming ad700 are fantastic. I prefer ad700 over Sennheiser 555 (I own Both). Music sounds great from both but I hear better in fps games with the ad700.

It's a matter of standards. This review and the video review posted on page 1 are done by people who are expecting the best; seriously crazy audiophiles. Go read the Head-Fi forums if you want to know how insane these people get about their headphones. It's rather puzzling to me that they would review a $90 pair of headphones and try to compare it to something like the AKG702s which have an MSRP of like $500. Even worse if they have used some of the $1000+ stuff like the HD800s, LCD2s, HE-500s, D7000s.

I think it's more of a case of "this is how far you can get to the top of the line stuff" with a more budget oriented headphone. Anyone on headfi will know all about those pricey models and maybe dream about them, but of course we all can't afford them.
