I'd suggest the HD800s if you really want to go for a flagship. Some people find it bright, though.

My brain's headphone and gaming knowledge is limited to what I read and the prices I willing to pay for headphones.

 

My statement of "Not sure why would anyone want to spend more for headphone "console" gaming" could be seen as a question and not really a fact.

Just showing I'm limited to what I've read and that what I personally willing to spend for a headphone (which is $312).

I'm personally willing to spend about $100, so I have a problem there XD

I do keep up with a lot of the hifi headphones, though, and know how a good amount of them sound.

The reason I want a flagship is because I want a headphone that is very hgh quality that I can listen to music to for long intervals with a preferably balanced sound as well as game on console that would would have superior sound accuracy and positioning and im willing to shell out a considerable sum of money for a quality one that will last me a while. ill look into the HD 800s though

Many people do find the HD800s fatiguing, because it is very revealing of the sound quality and how good the music producer really is. That might be something to take into account, especially if you listen to music that's not of perfect quality.

Care to try them out guys?

It's free for a limited time, so no harm done by trying it out.

 

A short little review about the software. Doesn't sound bad for free. I may look into this. I would love to be able to get surround through software and then use my T1 as a DAC. Mmmm, tubes. However, there is such a thing as too much processing.

It sounds pretty good! I'll be giving it a try since I don't have any DH stuff on my pc. By the way, it's "free" for a whole year, correct?
post #14707 of 37369
Thanks daleb, ill be sure to keep that in mind.

Real quick question. Have you heard the HD 800 for any extended amount of time?
post #14709 of 37369

For about 30 minutes. It was awesome.

Brotherhood is so good, it renders the original pointless. No, really. It's amazing. The story deviates from the original by quite a bit. New characters are introduced, and the way it ends, it may as well be a different story altogether.

Well, Brotherhood is based almost exactly on the original source material biggrin.gif definitely leagues better than the first anime series, absolutely. Everything about it is top notch, I'd recommend it to anyone.

have you thought about the TH-600?

I just ordered a pair from Justin at Headamp after he brought them out to the Dallas meet. Plan on getting some good quality COD time when they show up.

I'm interested in TH600 impressions.

So is it real multi-channel information or only stereo the basis for what DHT v4 sends to the headphone? That is very important for a lot of FPS gamers out on HeadFi.org and elsewhere.  And the new interface tells us nothing about what’s going on behind the curtain…
Please clarify

Hi Peter-

Thanks for the email.  In Dolby Home Theater v4 the headphone virtualizer algorithm receives and processes discrete multichannel audio.  Hope this helps.

Sooo-is it real virtual surround?
What does "discrete multichannel audio" mean...

Tried Razer surround and to be honest, being that it is free... it actually is pretty, decent.

Not as immersive as DH though and the added bass boost doesn't sound natural, suggest to keep it off. But positional cues are actually pretty okay, didn't took too long for my ears to adjust to where sounds are coming from.

 

Otherwise, on a whim where one doesn't have DH or SBX Surround, or any other HRTF tech then Razer's isn't really that bad.

Would the M50s be a good fit for the PS vita? basically looking for something to take as a portable solution which doesnt require an amp, and the M50s get so much praise. I dont like ear piece style headphones so looking for an actual headphone. It would either be M50s or something like an AD700 since it doesnt require an amp either. Looking for suggestions on those 2 pairs or something similar.

 

 

 

BTW I absolutely LOVE my Annies/Asgard 2 setup, It's just awesome playing games with them now, I can't believe how good they are lol.
