Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1098

Thread Starter 
The Xonar U3 as external, DG, Essence STX? I'm not well versed in soundcards. I myself just use the cheap U3, and feed the optical signal that carries Dolby Headphone to my real headphone dac/amp.

I'll see what I can dig up, shouldn't been too hard if I don't need a DAC/AMP thing.

Your pads have a bowl-shape to them, while my Q's have inner tube/ doughnut shaped pads.

 

Interestingly, the Q701 that I tried at the store also had "bowl" shaped pads like 712 and my Annies, except they were much stiffer and uncomfortable for me.  I wonder if it's similar to the Annies in that the earlier production units have the doughnut shaped pads and later units have the more bowl shaped pads.

You can post pretty big pictures in-thread.  I post a lot bigger than 800x600. 

 

Anyways, those DO look like the K712 pads.

 

Thanks for the confirmation pics.

 

Good to know I can post larger pictures in the future.  And thanks for confirming my thoughts on the pads.  I didn't have them side-by-side to compare so I was a bit unsure.

I admit I haven't looked very closely at my Q701's pads. I'll post a picture tonight after work.

I'm going to exchange it anyways though, just to be safe.

 

How do you power yours ON and OFF?  I've been just unplugging the cord from the back of the iCan itself, but now I'm a little paranoid that that could have messed it up somehow.

 

I might get something like this to turn it ON/OFF instead.

 

I've just been unplugging it, too. I was sooo confused when I first got it... thought I was crazy because there was no off switch :tongue_smile:

Look at it this way... you now get the updated version with the gain switches in return smily_headphones1.gif

BTW, the reason the iCan doesn't have a power switch is, according to iFi: "

Based upon EU regulations, from 2010, all electronics components when switched to Standby must consume <1W.  From 1st Jan 2013, when switched to Standby must consume <0.5W.  As you can see, this is quite draconian.

For iFi, the only way to comply is to have on/off so no Standby.  So you have to switch on/off at the wall (UK) or unplug at the outlet (US)."

Q701 has been using the same pads since it came out, which are the K702 pads.  They're similar in shape to the K712 pads (they have that steeper bowl shape) but are angled to be thicker one on side and thinner on the other and use a stiffer spring foam.

Yea it ate mine too. I replied to you AND Mad... but it only shows my reply to Mad. Anyway, I just unplug it, too...

 

Edit: And it's still not showing your whole post. Got mine to show up by editing and resubmitting. I noticed this on multiple threads also. There are many more unfinished sentences than usual. I just PM'd Curra about this.

If you're having trouble with the new editor (it has broken things for me too) please post about it in the Feedback and Bug Reports forum. That would be most helpful.

K712 PRO is on sale from now until the 15th of September for $385 using the coupon RAZORDOGK712. I will definitely be jumping on these by the last day of its promotion as I should have the funds by then :biggrin:
