Love KH. I last finished Birth By Sleep. smily_headphones1.gif

As for soundstage, I find nothing has bested the AD700, even the K701 (though it does have a larger left/right width in stereo mode).

The soundstage quality is what is better.  The AD700 has a vast soundstage somewhat giving it a negative when distance is in question.  I like that it doesn't have a lot of bass so is not as fatiguing.  The FA-011 has the soundstage but distance-wise is easier to hear though the bass gives it a movie atmosphere sometimes lol

Sounds like the DT990. Also the DT770 Pro 80. Soundstage isn't AD700 size, but it was the easiest in terms of judging distance. Too bad it was so bloated and muddy for online gaming.

Ok.. not whole day.. only 7 hours tops :)

 

I don't find that bad the treble.. but maybe is because I'm not putting a lot of attention to the music... or just i'm insensitive (my wife says that a lot) hehe :)

Just got a pair of the AD700's and want to add a mic to them.

 

The legendary Labtec mic that everyone has used in the past is no longer available. And way overpriced on ebay. 

 

What is a good mic to use for adding to it nowdays?

 

I don't want the zalman clip on mic. I want a boom mic to add on.

I would buy one of the TB mics, never had a problem with the X41 or PX5 mic.

I want a mic I can attach to the headphones with double sided tape, not one I will have to mod the headphones to use.

Hey MLE,

 

My DT990's 32 ohm came in today but for some reason I could not hear a big difference between my ad700's and the dt990's. Currently, the dt990's are unamped because I don't have enough money to purchase an amp yet-- would that make a big difference? I already turned the volume all the way up and the sound hurts my ears so I feel like the amp may just make things worse. Also, my dt990's are refurbished but they seem pretty solid still, perhaps something happened within the headphone that cause it to have less bass. Or maybe my ears are just bad, who knows? =P

Responded in the thread you started on this -- it can be done with those boom mics with some velcro.  I used the boom mic  from the Amazon link posted in your thread (along with a couple of others) with good results on my D2Ks.

The DT990 definitely shouldnt sound anything like the AD700. For one, you bought a refurb, meaning something was initially wrong with it. It should have been fixed, but I never trust refurbs. Two, you're running them unamped. I have mentioned several times that even the 32ohm Premium Beyers NEED an amp. I blame Beyer for making them not work properly unamped. They lose a LOT of their potential unamped.

I'd return it and try again.

DT990s should sound absolutely nothing like the AD700, amped or not. Definitely return them.

post #1573 of 37363
Also, maxing the volume on your player/computer right now is NOT going to simulate amping.

Has anyone been fortunate enough to try the Smyth Realiser?

post #1575 of 37363

MLE,

 

I connected the 5.8 mixamp RX to the E9 via 3.5mm male to male cable, the E9's line in to the headphone jack of the mixamp RX. Maxed volume on mixamp, plugged headphones into 6.3mm front jack of E9, and adjusted volume with E9 on high gain. I tried the T1, HE500, DT990, and HD800.

 

All of them sound much, much worse with the E9 hooked up than just plugged straight into the mixamp. I tested all four of them with and without the E9 real quick on Black Ops. With the E9 the environmental noise way way louder, positioning was all screwed up, things seemed to have echo, and the sound was just much more of a mess. This is with DH on btw.

 

What happened here?

 

Edit: Went ahead and also tested two other games with the T1, this time trying low gain and and stereo too. It's all the same.

 

Oblivion: Background music w/ E9 way louder, when I fire fireballs it's impossible to pinpoint their direction, music seems to echo. w/o E9 it's flawless.

 

Brutal Legend: Tested a few of the music tracks. Same results here too, whether on stereo or DH there is echo and louder background noise and music sounds messy w/E9. Again, w/o E9 perfect.
