Nice vid Mad!
Informative, good summary of things you've learned so far. I bought a pair of Koss KSC75's a couple months back cuz I needed a portable pair, sometimes the clips and treble get fatiguing after a while, but overall they sound better than they have any right to sound, and are my most versatile headphone.
One idea, write a general outline of topics for you to cover. You'll know when you've covered what you want to say, and you'll know what you're going to talk about next, in general it helps you speak more confidently and smoothly with very little effort. When I write reviews or even essays, I write an outline then go back and fill it in, the organization actually makes my total time spent less.

I have a new headphone incoming!
You might be proud, but then you might be disappointed when you find out which headphones they are. They should be pretty decent though, I'll share my impressions when I get them! With a DSS and all my amps!

You mean converter. That's what I always want to avoid. It's an active device that also comes with a PSU. Too much clutter for a Notebook.

Yeah, unless you can hide it behind the desk, it is quite a bit of devices tethered to one another. But they're small, so they aren't that hard to hide. It is very much cheaper than the U7 alone. MUCH.

Evs... I have no clue. I'd say the X1, but I dunno if that's the kind of sound you like.

Playing some Batman: Arkham City with THX Tru Studio. Really good positional cues, though it's off in that even when the person talking is close to Batman, they sound like 7 feet away. I'll have to test it with DH to see if it's an in game thing, or THX being wonky.

Does anybody else have an issue with a buzzing/humming noise coming through their headphones? It's really driving me nuts I can't get rid of it. Basically i can hear it when there is no noise happening and the amp volume is to high. Example: sitting at the xmb on the ps3 or the desktop on my pc. On low gain mode the volume has to be turned up more obviously than on high gain mode. On high gain mode the buzz/hum is amplified like 10x where I can barely turn the knob past 7 o clockish.

The thing is then, when I start a game up, the noise gets louder. For example ill use world of warcraft since I am playing that on pc ATM. I can be sitting at the desktop and its fairly quiet and when I start up the game to the login screen the buzz/hum gets quite loud. You can't really hear it when the game sound is on but when it gets quiet you can hear it in the background.

Is this normal ? I realize all electronics can have noises but its just annoying as hell to hear it and be constantly fiddling with the volume knob. I've read about people having issues with a hum noise coming from the amp itself but this isn't coming from the amp I can put my ear right on it and its dead silent so it's just comig through the headphones.

I don't have any other amps or headphones to test out so I'm at a loss if this isn't normal. I've tried plugging the amp directly into the wall and also through my surge protector

I want FiiO to bring their own "Mixamp". They would definitely do much better than all the other contenders, especially with signal quality.

I didnt have such an issue with Arkham City (PS3) if my memory serves me right. I would say it should improve with DH? Let us know :)

Yeah, it's an in game thing. The sounds are positioning around Batman, and not the screen, which is why I thought it was so weird. if I'm pushed up next to someone talking, they sound slightly further away than they are.
post #14980 of 37450
Arnt most games that way? Positioned around your character and not the screen?
post #14981 of 37450

I mean, it seems to be related to the screen, not the character.

So I've been looking at some headphones on the list and looking at your ranking of them. I live in Israel and the prices are much different here than they are listed here. If I were to have the following options what would you suggest as far as best bang/buck

 

AKG 701 - $438

Sennheiser HD 598 - $402

Sennheiser PC 350 - $191

 

I'm using it for gaming sure, but nothing competitive. This is more for use in TS3 and such so that people don't hear background noise and for some good sound. Would either of those 400$ headphones be worth it? I mean they're almost twice the price you've mentioned. Any help would be appreciated.

We can both of these here for $250, so definitely not worth that much. Also, all 3 are competitive focused. They won't be too fun to listen to. Also, all 3 are open, so sound leaks in, and you'll be able to hear everything going on around you outside the game.

Wait, what?

 

*turns out they're nothing like the PC360s*

 

The power of Sennheiser naming!
