Lol, if only I could.

I'd be happy with a 900 duo.

TH-900 + MA-900. wink.gif

Mitch, the Q701 is much better than the AD700 in terms of bass.
post #16653 of 37329

so lets say we have a bass scale

the ad 700s are a 1

the scale goes up to 100

where the x1s and q701s fit

Once the PS4 is out and has settled in, I will buckle down and play it. 

 

It will be intense, but those types of games are some of the most exhilarating experiences you can have with headphones + virtual surround.

With their price drop, the ones on the FS forum have also dropped in price.

If I could score the TH-900 for $800, sure, that's as much as I could throw at it.

Mitch...

On a 1-10 scale for quantity and presence (7 what I consider neutral bass):

AD700: 3
old K701: 6
Q701: 6.5
MA900: 7.25
Annie: 7.75
X1: 8.5

Basically what I've said of the Mad Dogs vs the LCD2. A cheaper alternative.

Calling a Denon D2000 a "budget D5000" makes sense, but I doubt most people would even call a HD5x8 a "budget HD6x0" as they're two different sounds.   Same thing with the MA900 and Anniversary.

 

Alright, fair point there guys.

A cheaper alternative definitely makes a lot more sense, sorry on my part.

At first I was bummed that it was for PCs, because my PC is weak and can't handle modern games, but I just read that it's also coming to PS4.  Yet another reason to get one.  :rolleyes:

 

Whatever you do, PLAY this game in the future or whenever you have the chance. I'm so sad that games aren't taking sound design seriously these days and when an indie dev actually does, I'm just floored. There's nothing groundbreaking visuals, story or gameplay wise. It's just how immersive it is, been a long time a horror title has been this good.

Chico,

 

you have a M-Stage, I read alot about its synergy with certain headphones. How many AKG revisions does it take before you finally order your HD 800? :evil:

 

----

 

After I finish my Mixamp setup I'll start gaming again and will finish more than 3 games a year finally. I don't keep big backlogs, I just play less than I should and often I am too picky about immersion (free time, moment) so I just play a round of FIFA and be done with it. Last game I finished was Bioshock Infite, before that I played Max Payne 3 the second time. I love that game.

Just curious how does the bass on the hd 600 and 598 fit on the scale

What do you think is the most important thing on sound for rap/hiphop depending on a lot of vocals and dubstep?

598: 6.75, but too much mids for me.

558: 7

Never heard the 600


but the HD650: 7.75

not sure what you mean in the last bit of your sentance

 

the main reason i listen to the genre is for the instrumentals/beats which are amazing for example

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_iTsvBWhRY

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSXiNdTbTA4

 

i think i will go with the x1s

https://www.eglobaldigitalcameras.com.au/philips-x1-on-ear-hifi-headphones.html

 

i guess for all music im more interested in the beat, hence my love for the hip hop and rap genre no matter how pretentious half of the artists are.

i should listen to more house

this realisation has made me decide on the x1s

Some of us told you to get the X1 what feels like ages ago, lol. It's a headphone almost everyone will love unless they're specific about wanting bass that is more natural.

What would your scale look like if it was based on bass quality? How would the orthodynamics's bass such as the LCD2 and HE-400 compare to the dynamics you listed above?
