Just my opinion after owning them for a while.
Forget about crappy 7.1/5.1 emulation over software. It screws with your music and using ALchemy + EAX in games has the same affect, without screwing with your music.
I also used to use the Crystalliser, but with the AD700's I don't see the need any more.
Hope this helps.
Whether or not the AD700 lacks bass depends on your reference point. If your reference point is an Ultrasone PRO550, then heck yes, the AD700 lacks bass.
If you think it's just right, then by all means enjoy your headphones. I think the AD700 is completely unexciting.

Yeah thats why i meant alchemy + EAX for 7.1/5.1. one question about the headphone. do i run directly from my titanium hd or i need to amp this headset?
Most headphones around the $150 don't require a headphone amplifier. What's your budget for this purchase?
