I suggest the 700s because they are broader, and have less bass. But only by a little.
Thanks.I bought the M-50 last night,from what I read one cant go wrong with them.I did check the 700's but the price was a considerably over my budget even without shipping which is almost 30 bucks.

Weird, from what I can find they seem about the same in price. Amazon has haid free "super saving shipping" on so I nagged mine for around $110 with no shipping a little while back.

Good luck with your new cans!

Super saving shipping does not apply to Puerto Rico, I bought the M-50's from B&H photo for $ 109 while the A700 were like $150.

Hey guys, I'm not big on spending $100-400 on an amp, is there anything wrong with this one for my HD555's?

I picked up a HD 201 a couple of months ago for $14 bucks and I really like 'em. I am interested in getting either a HD 555($93.33) or HD 595($149.95). Which would be the better buy? Should I save myself $50 bucks or are the HD 595's worth shelling out the extra $50?

EDIT: Or maybe getting the HD 555's and an amp would be the best choice?

Get the 555's, but wait until another sale happens. They've been as low as 79.99 on amazon and then pick up an amp.

you're much better off upgrading your soundcard / source than amping the HD555.

Your sound is only as good as the source, so amping with a crappy source is not a good idea. If you are really interested in sound quality it's time to get rid of a video card.
