Audio Technica A700 VS Ultrasone Pro 550

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I want to know which one of these headphones were best for 50% Music / Movies, 50% Gaming. I watch a lot of YouTube videos and listen to Dubstep/Rap and play some Battlefield 3 and other stuff. I like the Audio Technica A700's but heard they don't have enough bass. I don't have a sound card yet but I might be getting one in the summer. Thanks in advanced.

I had both of them, but decided to keep the Pro 550. The Pro 550 has better soundstage depth and clearer mid's.

Ultrasone all the way, man.

I have the a700's running through a Xonar DG. Setting the sound card to >64ohm and full-size (in the bass section) gives me plenty of bass. I don't listen to dub step/rap, but every other genre has ample bass for my tastes. I don't have an Ultrasone, so I can't compare.

The Ultrasone easily.
