You guys are awesome. I was completely lost and 2 posts and I understand. Love this community.   PurpleAngel: Thank you for the info and advice, I feel stupid that I was so lost on how to hook my amp up. I just have no experience with PC sound so I guess I was making it more confusing than it needed to be.   Jd007: Awesome info man, thanks. I'll be using my GS-1 amp to drive my K701's therefore I'm not too worried about a built in headphone amp, so I think I'm...
So...I'm building a gaming PC, my first one. I'll be using k701 headphones. I own a GS-1 headphone amp that I'd like to incorporate into my gaming rig if possible. But I'm confused. I have zero knowledge of PC audio so any help is appreciated.   Firstly, which card is better for headphone gaming? I've read that the X-FI Titanium HD is the better choice for gaming and the Xonar Essence STX is better for music, so I was leaning towards the X-FI.   Now, X-FI doesn't...
I only listen to music at night, in bed, and have had no problems. Use a narrow pillow, or fold a full pillow in half, so that it does not contact the earpads and push them forward.
I'm confused as to how a soundstage as presented by headphones can be "unnaturally wide"...I always assumed headphones compressed the soundstage, therefore making it unnaturally narrow, given it's harder for a set of headphones to reproduce an accurate soundstage that comes from a well positioned loudspeaker setup. If anything the soundstage on the K701 is closer to a more natural, realistic loudspeaker-type soundstage. Great review nonetheless.
There was definitely a lot of initial K701 hype that could be attributed to "FotM"...however, I think for the most part the novelty has worn off and the K701 has proven to be, for a lot of people, a very, very good headphone. They are the real deal, IMO, and it doesn't suprise me that there are plenty of people who prefer the K701 to the HD650.
I really wish eBay would do something about "revenge negging". It sort of defeats the purpose of the whole system if a crappy seller can ruin an honest buyers reputation by leaving untrue negative comments in retailation...

The next logical step, if you really like the HD555 sound, is the HD595. The HD580 may be considered a step down from the HD595, depending on what your tastes are.
Can this amp still be purchased new? I was under the impression they have been discontinued...
