Please do let me know when you are ready for the K612. I'm going to send them out on a gaming tour, throughout the regulars on this thread... and I'm pretty much waiting on you. I'll be sending to you, first, since you're right next door and it will cost me less. These deserve some recognition among the favorites, here... and it pretty much will not happen until you review it...

 

As far as the tour goes... I wanted no more than five people that I am familiar with. So here is who I came up with...

 

MLE

Chico

Evs

Axel (if you're interested)

Nameless

 

I'll be sending them with both sets of pads (stock and angled).

Hi so I finally made an account here. Great thread here...always a good read. Ive been lurkin for quite some time.

Im very interested in the x1s I see so many of u talking about. I currently use a pair of hd 558s with a dss1 and e11. I know the dss is probably plenty for the 558's but the e11 just seems to add a little more fullness, even at a very low level. Also have a 2011 mixamp...

I play console games some battlefield for fps's and then all sorts of other types of games.

My question is if the x1s are worth the upgrade? I enjoy the hd558s but maybe the x1s will sound more "fun" or immersive? And if so am I going to lose a great deal of my soundstage and positioning?

Just curious to hear from anyone who has heard both sets of these cans.
Thank you!

Of course I'm interested. I've enjoy the AKG sound of every unit I've head with exception to the K550. When my new toy comes in I may do a short tour myself since I'm packing to move at the end of the month and then I'm traveling most of April. I'm sure many want to hear the flagship goodness. ;)

The information is available all throughout this thread now. You just gotta know where to look. ;) I'm sneaky like that. Forum ninja.

I forgot the Alpha Dogs were a "flagship." 

 

:o

Oh.  Interesting.

post #21594 of 30066
Yes, very interesting...

Though I'm a bit hesitant to try it. Not good for my wallet :/

I understand that feeling. I would stay away from electrostats if I were you, otherwise you may be temped to venture into the expensive world that is STAX.

You're telling me, and I'm the one that bought them :p Definitely not good for the wallet. Hopefully good for the ears.

The latter unfortunately still has audio issues but due to being a Sony title it has better samples than most games and when the audio mixing works (usually well done by Sony 1st party and in this case it is often really good but akwardly dies off or cuts off (not signal-wise but within the mixing process) the Fostex proves to be my most immersive can. Thanks to low distortion, fast decay and very good soundstage it's a ******* good experience. Don't worry about the bass woofering your ears. It's really "quick" (decay) and very detailed.  

 

HD 800 is another reference for gaming but forget it with the Mixamp, only use it with the PC or a better signal than the Mixamp. This is why I appreciate more headphones that are higher up but still sensitive enough to run good from mobile and transportable devices. Very few TOTL can do it. TH-900 can. Use them on your receiver, smartphone, Mixamp, create a transportable setup. Not easy to do with the HD 800. My future will be with cans that are more flexible. I'm done with hard to amp stuff that glues me on my desk (yes, I could use long cables throughout the room, but really?). 

 

K812 is another good option with very good separation, imaging/soundstage and balance (albeit being on the sharper side) and its ability to also shine from low powered devices actually saves it a bit in its competing range (still too expensive imo).

 

I agree.

 

I had a brief experience with the TH-900 on The Last of Us, it was just absolutely chilling... in a good sense. That hotel basement level was just fantastic. Never heard anything like it.

Can you, if you want it yourself ofcourse, also let MLE review the Shure 1540's?

HE-6 worked pretty well with DH for me as long as a hefty, powerful amp was added of course :D

The bass might have been a bit too tight for full immersion, but I still loved it,

post #21600 of 30066
If I got the 6 then I would get the combo available to me with the ef6 for 1800. The air and imaging is what made me curious about it with gaming. It was the first headphone I'd heard with that much out of head height and width. It was freaky
