Anyone have any input on these?

Anyone have any suggestions?
I can't recommend anything else, because they're the only set of decent headphones i've ever owned. But they were worth every penny to me. Even if they broke today i'd just buy exactly the same pair tomorrow.

What receiver do you have? If you get the 80 ohm versions you should be ok though.

Oh yeah, they're so incredibly comfortable as well.

Receiver is TX-SR601, I'd be using the headphone out on the front just like I do now.

I love my AD700s but between the pads being all squished down (Which I know is replaceable, but its a small problem among other things), the creaky plastic from just being used, the stiff cable, and the worn plastic I think its time for an upgrade!

It depends on which version you're getting, but I believe all of them like amping. If you haven't looked into it already, I highly recommend looking at the higher impedance ones. I've read they have much better mids and highs than the 80 ohm ones. They also need to be amped I believe.

You'd be supprised. They're almost good enough to listen to using my Nexus One. I mean, obviously it's nowhere near the quality of a good amp. But they're not very hard to drive.

Just ordered a pair of AD700s + Xonar DX. Quite excited given that I've been using Sennheiser PC150s + on board sound for a while now

Well I have AD700s coming in the mail, but I got my new sound card today and just couldn't wait to try it out. Went out with the intent of picking up SHR440s to demo in the mean time, and possibly keep for music (AD700s for gaming, or maybe return if 440s worked well in games). Long story short, 440s were sold out so I just picked up a pair of SHR840s instead.

Been listening non-stop for about 6 hours now with my new Xonar DX, and I am extremely pleased so far. The bass is almost exactly where I like it, and I'm really enjoying the sound on these. They actually work great for gaming too, especially in an immersion sense. Directional sound obviously isn't perfect, but it's more than good enough to game casually (competitive CS days are long done).

I have about a week before my AD700s show up, but I'm honestly considering keeping these 840s and sending the AD700s back. I'll give them a try for sure, and maybe they'll blow my socks off, but I doubt they will be as well balanced as the 840s.

Anyway, back to the music.

IMHO ... the 840's are one of the best "bang for the buck" closed cans you can buy; they do lean towards the more "accurate" side of things, and some person's don't like that, but I love them as compliment to my much different sounding Grado GS1000's (open can's by the way and highly colored when compared to the Shures ... but colored in a very nice way, mind you).

Enjoy the cans dude.
