 Pretty sure M-A is talking about "Out Of Your Head" software - threads/links:http://www.head-fi.org/t/689299/out-of-your-head-new-virtual-surround-simulatorhttps://fongaudio.com/out-of-your-head-software/ At this stage no good for gaming - due to latency. I own it.  It's brilliant for music.
 Sorry - only have experience with a Xonar, and my current X-Fi Titanium. Mine would be overall.  Competitiveness (accurate imaging) + comfort + immersion. A lot of people swear by AKG's K701/K702/Q701 but I personally found them too L/C/R - whereas AKG's K612 Pro has much better all around imaging.  I'd personally put the AKG K612 Pro above the AD700 - but it's been a long time since I owned the AD700 - and I've never had the two side by side.  MLE rates both the AD700...
And here is the other thread you might want to look through .... http://www.head-fi.org/t/593050/the-nameless-guide-to-pc-gaming-audio-with-binaural-headphone-surround-sound
Interesting thread.  One in which you'll get plenty of opinions, but a lot of it comes down to preference.  I'm a casual FPS gamer - so I appreciate directional audio.  I've also come from onboard 8.1 audio (which to be quite honest didn't work out all that well for me for gaming), but have a set-up now that whilst not state of the art, still manages to cover everything I need.   First - if you're gaming on PC - my personal recommendation would be to get a soundcard with...
Yes - they are pretty special - and amazing value. I managed to pick up an XBA-4 for an incredibly good price last week (too good to turn down), so will be reviewing them soon. And Vic just sent me the Fidue A83 to trial - it is incredible. X5 definitely getting a good workout!
 Yep - guaranteed.  Started already.  Will be interesting when ClieOS posts his findings.  I couldn't tell the difference in the quick ABX I did.  Mind you I can't tell any difference between FW versions (using FLAC redbook) anyway . The believers will make their claims .......
Posting answers from Joe on the question of SQ changes from 2.0 (including Betas) through to current 2.20 final. Here is what I asked: 1) Did you change anything that would affect frequency response (or codec) in moving from any of the 2.xx series through to 2.2 official release? 2) Has there been anything else changed - especially between 2.0 and 2.2 to account for "perceived" sonic changes by some members of the forum? His simple answers - "no" and "none" Hopefully...

Owned both cans.  As far as bang for buck goes - I'd definitely recommend the Audio-gd NFB-15 http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB1532/NFB15.32EN.htm   Oodles of power, very good DAC, and has inputs for USB, optical and coax.  You'll want the spdif optical/coax options if you're gaming, and still want to use your sound card's DSP.   Although I've slowly moved up the chain with headphones, my NFB-12 (earlier version of the current NFB-15) has stayed constant....
 Tip dependent, and also depends what you're comparing them to.  I don't find them cold at all.  Definition of warmth is bass and lower mid emphasis.  To me they are more warm than cold. Cold tends to indicate treble emphasis with little bass, and also little body (mid-range). Again - I simply don't see the S5 as being cold.
