chicolom, have you by any chance compared the Q701 to the K550. I am currently in possession of the K550, but I feel like something is missing. 
Hey MickeyVee, How do you like the Etymotic HF3s? I'm considering a pair.   Thanks
  Thanks for your input. I have been curious about how the Q701's handle completely uncompetitive gameplay. The only competing I'll be doing is StarCraft which doesn't really benefit from directional queues. Also, how do you like the Etymotic HF3s? I'm considering getting a pair. Can IEM game? I currently have the ATH-A900X and feel that these would probably suit me better than the AD900 or AD700. I also have the AKG K550, but I don't have a gaming rig right now. Just music.
I can agree with tight bass being more important than boom, but the soundtrack has some epic drums that I can't help from feeling would benefit from cans with decent impact. I appreciate your advice, and for portability, I just ordered the KSC75, so I will try them out. If I'm convinced, I'll spend big bucks on a pair of cans, but they have to give me what I'm looking for in gaming and carry over to other purposes like music (acoustic/folk/classical/electronic) and...
In truth, the more I ask myself, I just want a headphone that will take me to Skyrim. I just want to go there and disappear... for a little while, at least. I don't want to feel like I'm wearing headphones.
MLE, would the D7000 still be at the top of your list for the best all-around can? I need a can for music (lots of acoustic, folk, some electronic), movies, and gaming(immersive, fun, insert you into the world gameplay).
So how does that affect the audio? It sounds like you're saying its has no affect, but I'm not sure. Are any other Mac user's seeing this? When you go into Audio MIDI Setup, can you adjust the bit rate or are you stuck on 2ch-24bit. I just want to make sure its not just my DF, because I've been jumping around a bunch of DACs lately, and I feel like I had the option the other day. I don't want to think I messed it up.
Thanks, I'll look into these. I'm seeing that I can only select 2ch 24bit integer with this DAC. I feel like this was not the case the other day. Am I imagining things? On mac OSX does this appear with 4 options on sample rate and only 2ch 24bit integer. My final question is whether listening to a 16 bit track in this mode will be a bad thing, or does 24 bit take care of 16 bit too?
I was recently told that if my iTunes is trying to play 48 kHz while my output is set to 44.1 kHz (and vice versa) that it would not just sound less than it could but that it would sound really unnatural. Because I haven't heard any differences in earlier tests, I am curious if iTunes is changing the output automatically. It doesn't sound bizarre at all. I'll test again later. I've had a lot going on, but is it possible iTunes/the computer knows whats up?
I love the iTunes interface... So if I want to use it, I have to switch the sample rate and bit depth myself through Audio MIDI Setup for the DAC per track? I know I don't have any 24/96 files. I have plenty of 24 bit files at 44.1/48 kHz, but nothing higher. I have the DF which supports these files, so I could try it out. Again, to clarify, if I purchased such files, I would have to go into my computer settings to change the sample rate and bit depth in order to hear it...
