There is no end be all headphone, especially not with your budget. You get something, you lose something else. If you want to analyze footsteps, get the AD700s. They have very, very little bass, so you can focus on smaller details. However, your example is too extreme, even for the AD700.

The 990s do positional audio very well.

I'm not gonna sell people BS, and claim you can hear a fly buzzing from the other side of a map with ANY headphone.

The most important thing is to have detailed headphones with large soundstages and great positional accuracy for the closest thing to god mode in terms of game audio. AD700, Q701 come to mind. Even so, it's a few percentages better than everything else that scores an 8 or so. Not night and day or even better enough to dismiss other, well balanced headphones that are more immersive.

Hmm I see. It turns out that the DT990's + DSS are too expensive for me. So I need to save up a little more.

The X1 is currently $275 on Amazon! eek.gif

Go get it!

would these be a complimentary headphone to go with the annies for a different type of sound? or is there really any need?

 

and what if I do want to hear a fly buzzing on the wall from across the map? LOL kidding

They're different, but unless you want more bass than the Annies, there really isn't a need for the X1, IMHO. They're both very competent all rounders with different flavors. The same if you happened to own the X1 and were curious about the Annie.

The only thing is that the Annie does competitive gaming better (better sense of rear positional cues), and the X1 is more immersive.

Because I happen to prefer a stronger bass emphasis, the X1 is more tuned to my preference.

yeah it doesn't really sound like I would personally need the X1s then. I'm quite happy with the Annies, gaming with them is likeatsmile.gif

I can't blame you. I'd want the Annies if only because I love it so much. But I don't have a logical necessity for it with the X1 around. Two all around headphones doesn't classify as a necessity.

 I did order the Creative Aurvana Lives for my vita so i'll be checking them out once they arrive.

I went to my local Media Markt store on my lunch break today. They have about 200 headphones on display. They have the AKG 701 and also the Sennheiser HD 650 to start comparisons. Today I auditioned the Fidelio X1 and the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro. In that environment you cannot test if you can hear a fly one the other side of a COD map behind you, but you can kind of tell if the sound signature is for you or not. When I tested the X1 first about two month ago, they where more or less meh to me, not good, not bad, just not interesting. But now they have hundreds of hour on their drivers and are fully broken in. They are really nice sounding, especially the bass. It is a night and day difference. to me they have a very big and warm bass, that is just about perfect. Very tempting.  And it is running from a demo setup that drives 200 cans parallel. Only that they are all running at the same level. Then cam the Beyer. This is also a reasonable can. The bass is even more powerfull when you put the switches to full bass. And they are comfortable. The have vinyl pads which might be an off for some. But you can probably replace them with any Beyer velour or leather pad that is currently available. The stage seemed quite big to me though, maybe MLE, you could give them a full test. I feel these are also very interesting for gamers.

What's the difference between the Turtle Beach DSS and DSS2?

post #14889 of 37339

DSS2 doesn't use Dolby headphone, it uses it's own virtual surround emulation. I haven't personally heard it, but I've heard it's not as good. But at least you can tweak where the virtual speakers are around you. Me, I'm used to DH, and I prefer spending my money on a tried and tested product. I'd still like to try it at some point.

I am looking for something below or around 100$.

Very comfortable, over ear and closed. Not for competitive but for immersive gaming and lil bit of music listening(all kind of soundtracks, some scene music, chiptune and all kind of music) and movie watching.

Durability and detachable cable would be nice features but I dont expect magic in that price ;)

 

I am also getting Sound Blaster Z to finally finish with ongoing realtek alc892 disgrace.

 

btw. Right now I have Creative SB Tactic Sigma.

 

thanks

Found em on ebay too. 100$ with shipping.. but i would prefer to get em somewhere locally, so I could easily return em or use warranty without all the hassle.

The TH-600 came in today via Justin at Headamp. First off, if you don't know Justin he is a stand up guy. For anyone that does not know, he has a demo thread where he sends out quality headphones to those who sign up...  http://www.head-fi.org/t/645941/headamp-headphone-demos-audeze-fostex-hifiman-sennheiser-stax-sign-up-now

 

My very initial impressions of the Fostex with DH were extremely disappointing....until I added an amp to the mixamp. Then everything changed. Positional cues especially rear cues are the best I have ever heard. Better than the HD-800 even. The sense of space and sound stage is enormous and spot on. I figured these were going to be beast when I initially heard them a month or so ago at a head-fi meet, but I never expected this. Truly phenomenal for gaming. Off to listen more......
