the pro650 has awesome surround and sense of space but I am not really certain of its positioning...! never tested thouroughly but I can say I d some wrong clues with it... I am very experienced in gaming with headphones

Thank you, So the AD700 is better for gaming in your opinion for directional cues?

I wonder how the HD 800 performs with astro mixamp... The Pro 900 perform good without the mixamp... I woner what's the difference between the 650 and 900 in gaming. I guess not much.

I wouldn't pair the HD 800 with just the mixamp. It would be ridiculously underpowered, and because of that I can't imagine directional cues would be very accurate. I would also say the AD700 trump almost every other headphone out there in terms of directional accuracy. I can easily say it outperforms the pro 650.

The HD 800 will be powered with SPL Auditor aswell.. don't worry.

Oh ok, that post was confusing.

How durable and thick are the cables on the Sennheiser PC360?

 

They look like regular thin crappy cables on the amazon site...

post #1057 of 37425

lol,

 

the cables ont he pc360 looks the same as those on the astro mixamp, I find it nice!

I just got around to having a good gaming session with the mixamp and it really is a thing of beauty when paired with the DT990 pros. I could literally picture where people were around the corners, above, behind. You hear flies, grass, wind its immense. Even when using a decent surround setup I didnt have that much clarity. So glad I bought it! Going to try it with my 1964 Q's soon so see how they compare to the DT990's :D

Glad to hear the 990 Pros are working out. :) I didn't know what changes to expect between the Pros and the Premiums, as I only had the Premium 990s, but it sounds like they still work well as gaming cans as Pros.

Is AD900 maybe better for (competitive) gaming than AD700?

 

(If price not matters too much, which one to choose?)

No. Almost everyone who has tried both has come away saying the AD700 has better accuracy and positioning.

 

The AD900 just has better SQ.

Just wanted to add that the AH-D2000 is EXCELLENT with DH.  I'd describe it in very much the same way that MLE described the D7000...though I know the D7000 SQ is better.  Still, D2K is a solid performer with DH.beerchug.gif

post #1063 of 37425

Yeah. About two years ago when I first started looking for gaming headphones, the kings of the closed department were the D2Ks.

I can only compare the Mixamp 5.8 and DSS as I no longer have the wired mixamp.  The wired mixamp has the best signal to noise ratio of them.

 

DSS has a hair more hiss at low volume then the Mixamp 5.8, but has less hiss at extreme volumes then the Mixamp 5.8 which gets pretty hissy if you crank it to max.  You have to go really loud on both to reach that point though.  I only listen at ~35% volume on them.

 

Surround sound wise they are basically identical.  The only differences being that the mixamp has a slight boost in the upper midrange whereas the DSS is more linear, and that the DSS has a stronger bass boost that's adjustable.

 



Have you tried the Tritton AX720 decoder box. I'm wondering how the noise/hiss level is compared to the Mixamp 5.8. The AX720 are on sale for $100 at Amazon and it would be a lot cheaper if I got that but I'll be watching movies and TV shows so I was wondering how faint or audible it is.

 

Also has anyone actually used their own headphone and mic with the AX720 decoder box? I know that MLE said that there was two 3.5mm plugs for them but I heard otherwise from someone who own it and would like to confirm that there is a way to plug in your own headphone and mic.

My roommate owns it. I have plugged in my own PC360, as well as the dealextreme mic. It all works.

Hiss is a smidge more pronounced on the AX720 than the 5.8.
