I am not at all a fan of the A30s. Would say no to Logitech 930s (but if I'm honest it's because I have no experience with these whatsoever), and no to the Sennheiser PC350s (though some people swear by these)

That leaves you with the AD700s, but don't mix those with the mixamp. They won't get any boost from the amp. I'm not sure any of these except maybe the a30s will get a boost from the mixamp.

AD700s are excellent for pinpointing where things are in FPS games an excellent for instrumental type music or vocals, but they're not at all bassy headphones. They don't handle many types of music well so if you buy these, know that these are for gaming only for the most part.

If you're looking for headphones that do it all, I suggest you look elsewhere. Even JVC RX900s would be a better buy if you want all around functionality and gaming.

Those are great headphones, but it really depends if you can hold out for a while and keep saving for them or if you just need something cheaper. It's up to each person and their own personal preferences. In my experience, EVERY time I've tried to skimp on an item due to price, I've regretted it. I always try to go with the best quality now and worry about price afterwards. It's so much better to try and find a deal on a quality item than to just get a cheap price on a meh item.
