Of course I can.
I get most of my stuff from Amazon due to their great return policy. You can give these a try and if you don't like them you can return them.
They're extremely comfortable and currently one of the most popular headphones on Head-Fi.

Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface is fantastic. Just be aware that if you go into sleep mode, I have read these don't power up properly afterwards. I personally never put my pc to sleep so it isn't an issue.
Also I think on boot up there are some popping noises while it is powering on, but it doesn't bother me.
You'll have crystal clear, raw audio with this setup (assuming drivers and settings are proper). I would be very surprised if you didn't like it. It is extremely balanced sound.
If price is still of concern for you, the original AD700 headphones are very much recommended as well, especially for gaming. They have less bass response than the AD900x but provide very clear, crisp, detailed sound. They're basically brighter (higher treble) which is a good thing for FPS gaming, but not as good for overall multimedia use.
In this case you can afford both the USB Audio interface and the AD700s.Edited by gl0ry - 8/22/13 at 9:07pm
