I'm very sorry to read that, mate. All the best!
Hope everything works out for you
It's a shame I didn't choose an amp that could power orthos (don't get me wrong, I'm happy with my choice, but that rules HE-4/5/6 out)
I've been considering an HE-4, but I'd probably prefer a solid state amp. I know I could do some funny business with a receiver, but I only have the room for a headphone amp sized device. Is there anything like this that can really power orthos?
Just remeber it's cheaper to keep it than to sell it and buy it later.
By the way this is a great thread. Thanks for the info. I don't have alot of different headphones and I got a HD-650 like 4 years ago with a zero and I have loved it. I wish I had more headphones to try and a better amp, but I have a kid and one on the way so my fun budget when bye bye, but now I am older and make more money.
Anyone else tried the DT770 Premium 32ohm for gaming w/DH?
I've just got one and it seems pretty decent in CSS. It barely has any bass so could it be superior to the Pro/80 for competitive purposes?
I'd still like to try the AD700/K701/HD598 as I really want the best directional/positional accuracy.
I know you're a basshead, so I'd like to know what you think of the bass out of the HE-4.
I'm also thinking that it might be a good idea to make recordings comparing CMSS to Dolby headphone, though I'm not sure what way would be the best. Playing back a TF2 replay with a loopback is the best way I can think of. Maybe even a toslink loopback?
Would the AudioGD FUN be able to handle orthos?
If the specs are honest it should handle anything short of the HE-6 unless you combine earsplitting volume with insane EQ.
Just bought an Ultrasone HS-15 off of ebay, it's basically their HFi-15g (which I also have) with a boom mic. I've been using the hfi-15g instead of my hfi-2200 in black ops for the past few days and found them to be very comparable. The 15g has much less bass than the 2200 which helped a lot. The 15g is also super light weight and I do forget that I have them on. I can't wait for my HS-15 to come in so I can stop using a clip on mic.
