Wow that's pretty noticeable on my D7k's. I don't think I'd be able to enjoy listening to a song like that if I liked it in the first place.

Out of curiosity, are you sure you need closed headphones?

closed would be nice considering i live in apartment with people, but I am mostly looking for the best bang for my buck with budget of 150 dollars tops, like i said again i don't care or would use as much or often for music, I am looking for headphones for gaming/ watching movies which is what i mostly do on my computer all the time.

A700X= 130 bucks (free shipping)

A900X= 154(+5 shipping)

i keep hearing "sound stages" important when you watch movies or play computer games ( my favorite thing is horror games )

is this "Sennheiser HD 280 PRO " which is 50 bucks cheaper a better option?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=26-106-328&IsVirtualParent=1 + free shipping.

or am i better off with the audio technica for extra 30 bucks.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00007E7C8/ref=dp_olp_new?ie=UTF8&condition=new

these cost about 50 bucks also.

To its credit, the W3000ANV sold out more quickly than any other limited AT release.

The thing that annoys me about the Denon and Fostex lines is that they parade as closed-back designs, but they isolate about as "well" as open headphones do because they aren't sealed.

I wouldn't stick with the W3000ANV as my only headphone, though. Two reasons: exceptional euphony and incredibly delicate lacquer finish. To the former point, music sounds completely different from my JH13s and W3000ANVs. To the latter, I'll probably have to have mine polished, waxed, buffed and/or otherwise treated by a professional furniture retoucher somewhere down the line. redface.gif
You do have a point about getting more than 1 headphone, but that may become an addiction to collecting them. Trying to find elusive headphones and buying them is a long journey. Of course, I need to funds to buy them in the 1st place. They'll just be collector's items then tongue.gif

There's distortion in the songs mate - not your headphones.

I'll share some videos with you - remember to hit the 720p+ button (don't only incl a video but audio boost too - I guess there's some compression under HD on YouTube) - oh and edit: warning explicit lyrics etc...bla bla
Disgustingly nice bass line and song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twtOCEjXHcw

Lovely song, beautiful sub-bass:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEb7CPtpZvM

Nice song - bass is a bit distorted:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm3Hz9bLwhY

Bass is clean - lyrics aren't special - I love Rick Ross' verses:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9xpsmDXy48

Enjoy bro!

I think that's what he's complaining about tongue.gif. Since the distortion is in the song, there's nothing you can do about it.

They also have this for google chrome and probably opera for that matter. Once installed you can set it for 1080p. It also has a nice feature that buffers your video to a point before it starts playing to ensure that your video does not stop.

Truly it is a great add on. thumb.gif

This is what modern rap should be more like IMO:

Great production value (scales with gear; sounds good on low-end and high-end stuff), substantial lyrical content. That's why I'm off the mainstream rap train.
