PCCG has both for $149. What would you choose? Which is better? State reasons and proof/experience
For gaming? AD's have a killer soundstage and positioning. And they're the most comfortable phones I've ever worn.
Audio-Technicas. Have had both, currently have the ADH-AD700's and prefer them (although theyre quite ugly colour wise)
ad's sound amazing
comfy as (8 hours of wear and you take it off like they were never even there)
easy to mod too
apparently get a hold of some 3000 series drivers REALLY cheaply, cheaper than the new price of the phones alone... and they screw right in.
That settles it then, the AD700's will be mine... soon.
3000 series? You meant the ATH-AD2000 possibly? You can get them on ebay now for about $500. They used to be over $1200. I'd spend extra and get the ATH-AD900 instead of the ATH-AD700, unless you've got a lazy $500.
not sure. was in an ad-700 modding thread on another forum
i remember w3000 or something tho.
Just got a pair of the ad700 yesterday would recommend them to anyone to use great cans .
I'm pretty happy with my AD700's. I bought them from Amazon shipped to Aus for $100. You may want to consider that if you want to save a bit of cash.
Well I'm new to all this audio business, so $500 to replace some drivers isn't exactly cheap
I have also seen people do the HD555 to HD595 mod. Does that change anything?
I've had my ad700's for 5 days. They are awesome.
But I disagree with you about the colour I think they look cool
There's plenty of love for the AD700s already but I feel I should throw in that they're the best headphones I've ever owned in every way - build quality, comfort, and sound. I honestly can't imagine why you'd want to buy anything else remotely near that price range.
Yeah I think there's enough love in this thread for the AD700s already, but hell, I'll throw my agreement in too. Comfy, sound great, good price. You won't do better without laying out a good chunk of cash on top.
The ATs are still better. The Senns have a bit more bass, but lack comparatively everywhere else. But that's what an EQ is for, right?
