Is this on PC? what soundcard are you using?

I picked up a pair of Pioneer SE-A1000 at Best Buy the other day for $35 + tax. So far I'm enjoying the sound these can put out. Does anyone have experience gaming with them? I'm reading on Head-Fi that they were a flagship a couple years ago that retailed for $200. Don't see them being worth $200 but so far they're excellent for sub $40. I have them at work right now, so no gaming on them yet.

The main thing that intrigues on those Pioneers is that their maximum input power is 1.5watts. Jesus, that is like planar magnetic power handling capabilities. So they can handle some really powerful amps and probably scale well.

Unfortunately as far as amps go, I use a cheap cmoy amp at work and my T1 at home. But even off the cmoy they sound nice. Can't do any critical listening at work, but I'm impressed so far. And you're currently running off the E12, correct? I'd be interested to hear how these sound off one of the stronger amps out there. Heck, maybe I can ship them up to Chico for a bit and see how they sound off the 1.5W M-stage. At least, I think the Matrix does 1.5W; feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken.

yeah.  It's an x-fi fatality (dont hurt me :( ) but I was having driver issues so I installed aftermarket drivers, and they remove headphone mode.  I just forgot to change the settings in splinter cell

Is there any benefit to using an e17 in line with the astro mixamp with the x1?

 

I was considering the e17 to help with the auido out of my iPad/iPhone or laptop. I know that don't really need to portable amp ability since I am using the x1 as my headphone set so I am still on the fence about purchasing the e17. I'm just not sure if the DAC in the e17 would help with listening to music out of my portable devices.

The SONY Pulse Elite Headset is getting very favorable user reviews. I wonder how they fare in their price range or vs. PC360.

Open vs closed. Pleather vs velour. Probably balanced vs bassy, large soundstage vs small soundstage.

I'm just not a fan of closed headsets, at least in terms of comparisons to open ones.

I'm sure I'd prefer the Pulse for music though.

I'd love to listen to them though. It has it's own form of virtual surround. I wonder how it fares vs DH and THX TS.

That Pulse tech supposedly gives tacticle bass feedback, some form of vibration/rumble.

I saw uravgconsumer's review on them, and he says it's the best bass he's ever heard. Though he is a basshead...

Still, I've always been interested in hearing them, but I just don't buy pleather padded headphones.

Hey guys I have been reading this site for awhile. My problem is (good one) is I only wonder dre beats they kill my ears since I wear glasses during gaming. So I need better more comfortable headphones with better sound. I am open to buying a sound card like the creative Xr/zxr.

I know there are no good wireless or blue tooth my budget is under 500$. So far I read up on the

5. Steelseries

6. astro a50
People were mentioning amps if I got that crearive card would that suffice?

Guess wireless or bluetooth does not work. Was really looking forward to sitting far away from the computer using them instead of speakers for movies.

On the other hand someone mentioned the ue9000 Logitech.

I am mainly using this for gaming and then movies sometimes music. I would like to buy something today, and prefer to not buy a lot of external hardware

Thanks

Just got my Philips Fidelio X1 and sound card hooked up and all I can say is... woah. Coming from owning cheap gaming headsets to this is just incredible. So glad I found this thread and decided to get the X1s.

The skullcandy plyr?

 

Else, fidelio x1?

I'd prefer the Plyr over the A50, anyday of the week. The Slyr is better than both for me though.
