Uncharted isn't good for demoing headphones. Bad positional audio. But yeah, the 880s are bright. You might want something smoother. Maybe the 650?

HD 650 are quite a ways beyond my budget....... 

 

Im guessing the DT 990 pro would be the same as the 880 with the gun fire sounds

 

anything @ $250  comes to mind?

So, to get me of this computer I decided I'm going to watch Zero Dark Thirty with my Q701s (haven't seen it yet). Memory foam pads or stock pads?

 

Decisions... decisions... rolleyes.gif

Uncharted 3 has pretty good positional audio; Uncharted 2 isn't that great. The gunfire in Uncharted 3 is also much more bright than most shooters so it isn't the best in that regard.

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
At one point I almost expected you to brace the box with your feet so you could get the dang stuff out, haha! Propping the phone between books is a good idea, smoother video too, but maybe you could affix the phone to your forehead so it sees what you see? Kinda like some tech-doctor? Probably should just stick to the feet idea biggrin.gif

So, how did you hear about Kingsound, and why do you trust them? That's the same designer as your amp too, right? I'm not saying they shouldn't be trusted, I just don't know anything about the brand except that you plunked down like $500 for their amp.

PS I have too many games to play right now. I'm almost done with Assassin's Creed and ES: Oblivion, but I still have my long term mainstays CoD4, Reach, and Starcraft II, I'm dabbling in Star Wars: the Force Unleashed and Halo 4's Forge mode, and I own but have yet to get into SW:TOR, KOTOR, KOTOR II, Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, Batman: Arkham City, and probably one more I forget right now. I buy games to relieve stress from work, but I work too much to play games as regularly as I used to. The DSS is still treating me well, though I still get the strongest sense of imaging when I use the tube amp with the DSS.

My backlog is as follows: FO3, FO:NV, GOW Saga, GOW: Ascension, Hitman HD Trilogy, Max Payne 3, Metal Gear Rising, Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider HD Trilogy. I am close to finishing Dead Space 3 and Hitman: Absolution... and just started Dead Island: Riptide.

 

I play games to relieve stress, as well, but school has had my time tied up these past 9 months. It still hasn't stopped me from buying more games, though... smh

I have a pretty huge backlog of games I want to play through over the summer.  Luckily most of the games are getting pretty cheap now. 

 

I recently finished Singularity (surprisingly good and similar to Bioshock and Metro 2033 styles) and I just picked up FF XIII-2, Max Payne 3 and Mass Effect 3.

 

Still need to play RE6, Dead Space 3, Halo 4, Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, Tomb Raider, and many more...tongue_smile.gif

The 990 has more bass and more treble... so it might be worse. Still I'd give the 880 a chance to break in [break into ur brain that is] but seriously once you adjust to the 880 sound you might like it, but the dt series is bright... although apprently the w1000x is brighter than an 880... which it is. I own both. Still... I don't mind bright cans... I don't find them harsh [even on solid state] it's bass and mids that get me angry with any can... bright is nice so long as it's airy and smooth

Smoother, comparative cans are the 650 and K702 Anniversary. Mad Dogs as well but those are closed.

Mad Dog isolation was great for MY gaming needs, but it was WAY to dark for music imo

Did you get 3.2? It's a complete turnaround for me, compared to what I originally reviewed. After I review the PLYR1, the Mad Dogs are getting updated. This time, it's considerably more favorable. I absolutely love the new MD.

Are the Sennheiser HD 518 good for gaming?

The Emperor ES HP has one of the worst builds I've ever seen. It really looks and feels very cheap. Sound didn't impress me either.
