I don't know how these Audio Technica ATH-AD700X have done it, but they nailed the directional audio. I can feel when someone is in front of me to the right... or behind me to the left. The way the noise hits in the headphones is amazing! It's greatly improved my game since now instead of hearing footsteps and trying to guess where it's coming from I can actually know with 100% assurance that they're to the right and in front of me or whatever the case may be.
I am so happy I bought these!!! I'm a Gold 1 in Rainbow 6 Siege, so I'm not a bad player, but these will help me reach into Platinum since I can finally "sound whore" like the best of them!!!
Grab a Modmic as well, some of the reviews say it's hard to attach, but it's not true, it was super easy for me!!!
I wouldn't recommend these for music listening due to the fact I love bass and these do not really have any, but for gaming these are amazing at the price point!!! The other con I would say is the headset can be uncomfortable if you're head is super tiny. I don't have to use the rubberband fix to fit my head since I was a 7 1/2 New Era fitted so my head is huge and these fit just fine.
One thing I did notice for me is it kind of rubs my ears weirdly, not enough to bother me, but I definitely notice is. My Phillips SHP9500S were definitely more comfortable, but they sucked in terms of directional audio with these ATH-AD700X are the kings of!
The ad700x are open back headphones. Which simply means they do not isolate the sound into your ear. What the open back headphones do I have noticed is create this sense that the sound is coming from your entire room. It creates what they call a large sound stage which allows for sound to travel outward and freely vs focused into your ear ( I think thats what it does). You couple this with a nice external DAC/Amp and you have your self one of the best gaming headphones you can ever buy and at a bargain. The mids and highs sound clear and crisp allowing you to pinpoint where foot steps are coming from. If you listen to music than the sound feels like you are at a concert hall with just you and the band.
I have minor trivial gripes with this headset and that is its lack of bass. Because of the nature of the open back, bass essentially gets lost. Aesthetically, these headphones are not the sexiest on the market so if looks are your thing these are not the ones for you (refer to my lovely model Duncan the penguin photos. The microphone does not come included. I created my gaming headphones by simply buying an external microphone to attach to my headphones). Lastly if you game or listen to music in a room where there is noise or constant hustle and bustle than having any open back headphones is not ideal since those sounds will bleed into your experience.
When compared to a closed back headset like my astro a40's, the sound on he ad700x is substantially better. Again, I am speaking from a gamers perspective. If you are the type of person who enjoys good deep punchy base and feeling like the sound is enclosed and tight than closed back headphones are the way to go.
Overall this is an amazing pair of headphones. The large sound stage it creates will eliminate the need for surround sound. I place my settings on stereo across the board and because the sound stage is so large, surround sound is naturally created through its design.
