I've narrowed things down between the V-MODA Crossfade M-100 or waiting for the new ATH-AG1x to be released. My budget for a good closed headset is $370 or less and do not want to use a modmic. I have tried the Hyperx Cloud II and I didn't like the background noise I experienced. This headset will be used for gaming but also for listening to music and movies.

I know no one has any hands on with the AT yet unless you tested it at a tradeshow I just need to know other peoples opinions of whether or not it's worth waiting or just order the V-MODAs

two different kinds of sound..

ag1/adg1 are bass light (based on a700x/ad700x headphones) with very large soundstage.
m-100 are fairly bassy with poor soundstaging (closer to the m50x than anything else i'd say)

for advantage i'd say you cant go wrong with the ag1/adg1 headsets. the game one (based on hd598) is not bad either. its more neutral with a bit more bass than the at's, a bit less soundstage and is more mellow and easy listening.

is there a reason you did not like the modmic? honestly its better than some of the mics that come on headsets you buy so its about the same thing.
