Lol, I'm not getting that. I'd love it, but I'm mostly a one headphone guy. One open, one closed, at the most.

Thanks daleb! I was rushing, honestly. So green about all that. I need to learn editing and the like.

I sold them to fund for the LCD2, and I've sold the LCD2 to fund for the Kingsound electrostatic headphone.

I'm a fickle person. Don't judge me. frown.gif

Mad, I enjoyed the video, you covered the relevant points and it felt like a friend was showing his stuff to me. Gonna make more videos?

Probably. Testing the waters.

I'll try again with the Kingsound KS-H1 and it's M-10 amp. Probably prop my phone up between two books, so I can use both hands. XD

I think the W3000ANVs are better in this regard, and perhaps even the W1000Xs. The W1000X felt more accurate to me than the Q701s, and had a benefit of subjectively better immersion thanks to its frequency response.

REALLY, wow I own the w1000x, and you feel it's BETTER... hehe lucky me.

Perhaps your preorder was premature! eek.gif

Ok, so I went ahead and purchased the SRH840 instead of the SRH840 as my closed can. I tested it for gaming and it performed quite decent except for the soundstage. It's a pretty 'fun' can, actually. It reminds me of the M50, somewhat. For music, however, these babies shine for the price range.

 

It's like when I used to have the AD700 and M50. The AD700 was for gaming/movies and the M50 was for music. It is slowly becoming the same with my Q701 and SRH840, now. I don't know if that's a good thing... or bad thing... confused_face(1).gif

 

Edit: I meant to say "purchased the SRH840 instead of the SRH940"

So uhh some thoughts on my new DT 880. I think I will be returning them. I am no good at describing sound but I will try. From playing games like Uncharted 3 I found the sound of gun fire to be fairly harsh. Its very clear but they seem to have less uhhh.... "weight" to them compared to my AX 720 headset. Sound of gun fire sounds more "full" on the AX720 than on the DT 880. Had this problem with other sounds to but gun fire stood out the most. Really hope this makes sense to someone. So I will be getting them exchanged.

 

Any suggestions of what to go for, considering how I found the DT 880 to sound. I do like its sound stage and bass though. Looking for immersion but not overpowering bass. Budget of $250
