How do you guys store your 550? I removed the plastic mould from the box and store them flat inside, so you can admire them through the box window. I normally throw the box away but this one is pretty nice and heavy duty, it might as well function as a case. I don't want to put it on a hanger/stand because I'm worried about marking the foam on the inside of the headband.
I used my Tiamat 7.1 straight from my MOBO for about a week. When I upgraded to a dedicated sound card the difference was huge. It may seem obvious, but have a look at the controller unit and make sure all channels have their volume set appropriately, you might have some muted. You might also want to check it's not a software issue (windows sound settings or mobo drivers). Finally, I recommend plugging the usb cable into a power supply, you will get a lot of grain and...
The SE215 do not have filters. The special edition comes with foam tips with built in wax guards (none of my other Shure IEMs came with these) but neither version has any sort of filter/damper. The difference in sound comes from the drivers.
The ones they sent me are definitely legitimate. I did a little bit of research before buying from them, but everything I found was positive and some of those reviews were from head fiers.
You won't be disappointed with the normal SE215, though I would say an extra £20 is definitely worth it for the special edition.
I have both. To put it short the limited edition is bassier and has a shorter cable. There are more subtle differences, mids are not as recessed, but other than the bass the differences are small. I use the normal ones as my everyday IEMs and I'm very happy with them. I bought the limited edition from Accessory Jack and had them delivered to the UK, no problems.
They haven't done anything great in the music department because they haven't tried. Sure, they might market some of their headphones for music but it's clear they're designed for gaming. This Adaro line seems to be designed for music from the ground up, so let's see how they turn out. As for the krakenn forged edition, it was clearly just a "deluxe" reskin of the original kraken. I don't know why you expected it to sound any different. The headfi world is no stranger to...
Seems to me like you're judging these before they've even come out. My experience with razer is that they make high quality peripherals but price them too steeply. It's true that they market their headphones with wild exaggerations of sound quality but then your username is thatBeatsguy so I should think you've come across this before? So far they've been making headphones designed for gaming, and for that purpose they're good enough. They've got the materials and...
There's a lot of anger in this thread. I own the Tiamat 7.1 and I'm very happy with it. The build quality is superb, the whole thing is packaged and made like a premium product. The sound quality is good for its intended purpose: true surround sound in a closed headphone. All 10 drivers are clear, the bass drivers are powerful, the controller module lets you tweak the volume of each channel. For playing games and watching movies it is an excellent product and I would...
Thanks, you've given me some peace of mind. I'm actually going to hold off the K550 and get Grado SR80 for now, but I'll defninitely be looking towards the K550 and E11 combo soon after.
