What Headphones For Me? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I recommend the Beyerdynamic DT990s along with a CMOY amp to fill out the bass.

DT990 - 190$

CMOY amp (I like my Penguin amp, kind of a professionally done do it yourself amp) - They're out of stock right now, go for the Ultra amp.
Penguinamp.com

You won't regret this buy (but you really do need the amp to make it shine, my amp really increased the bass on my dt880s). Beyers have great positioning for gaming as well.

How are the ATH-AD700s with music?

On the other hand, AD700 does not engage you into the music, but rather surround you with an unbeatable sound stage. Bass is there, but not powerful - just enough for any non-basshead. Vocal is slightly recessed, but nothing terrible. In short, MS-1 performs well with Rock&Roll recording, while AD700 really brings out the best of classical. SQ wise, AD700 is a better all around 'phone than MS-1 when considering all genre of music. However, depend on what kind of music you are into
I havent tried the ATH-AD's, but this might help
lots of guys here in the OCN headphones club own them,
just PM some guys to find out :]
