I'v been considering these two with a zalman mic for about a month now, and im hearing good things on both of them. im on a budget, and want to get the most possible for the least possible.

i would mainly game on them, but use them for music from time to time.

the hd201's are about $15 cheaper so i would expect them to have worse sound quality, but is it a $15 difference. would i notice it that much worse?thanks in advanced.

RX700, man. The HD201s were largely disappointing when I first got them, clear but relatively hard to drive and quite boring in fact.

The RX900s were amazing.

I know this is a necro, but I've heard the RX700s are pretty uncomfortable. This is important to me, since I find the Senn 280 Pros to be unbearable after about an hour. How do they compare?

They're similarly closed. It may be worse for some people than others. I don't use my closed headphones much during the summer.

At ease, soldier!
Well I will get a chance to sample more cans, when I feel the need to. I am quite happy with my budget set of cans for now
