Ok, I've got a couple threads interested, so I'm going to be updating a first-impressions post (yes, the package is headphones, the K712 Pro) over the next hour or so with notes live as I listen on my journal thread.

If you have the listing up for two weeks without selling, close the listing for a while and then try again near the end of October. Make sure you keep it clean, and take nice looking photos that show off how well you took care of them.

Yeah it has 8 watchers and i had an offer but declined it by accident Hahaha

There is only brand new ones for 450 aud

So Steam has a Blops II free weekend. Downloaded it, and commenced getting my arse kicked. I dunno if it's because I'm using a controller or I'm just bad at the game...

Also bought RAGE, and the game makes me rage at the fact that it crashes as soon as I start it. I want my $4 back.
post #16777 of 37420
So wait... BLOPS 2 is F2P this weekend? This weekend only or we can get it free this weekend to keep using into perpetuity?
Feel like teaming up? biggrin.gif

F2p tbis weekend only, so basically only today is left.

I'm at work now. I might play later on today.

I'm under my name here, I believe.
post #16779 of 37420
Ah. How many hours later from now, do you think? I'll debate sleep/practice the meantime, lol.
post #16780 of 37420

Oh how I wish I were able to game tonight. Only reason I'm not asleep yet is I'm waiting on confirmation that my Q701s are sold so I can pack it up and ship it out tomorrow before work. Silly work, interrupting my game time.

 

While I'm sitting around not doing much, and on topic of gaming, what do you guys think about the announcement of the Steam Family Sharing? If it works out like I want, then that could be an excellent way of getting friends to experience games with excellent audio. I know quite a few people on my friend's list who haven't played Skyrim that would absolutely love the immersion that game can offer.

post #16781 of 37420
I think it's a good idea. Funny to think though, Steam is well-loved, but in many ways is like how the Xbox One was marketed.
I have Skyrim on DVD, but haven't installed it yer.

You're selling your Q701?? But wait... Haven't you tried tdockweiler's mod yet? It's all the rave in the Q701 appreciation thread!

Yeah, I'm selling it off. It's been good to me, but I really have my eyes on the Alpha Dogs coming out around the end of this month. Lately I've been playing games where I don't need a mic on my Mad Dogs, and I haven't played a ton of games where I needed chat functionality. The Mad Dogs are more comfortable than the Q701 are. I like the heavier weight they have and their clamping force is just perfect for me. 

 

Lately I've been looking into upgrading my MD to AD, maybe getting the X1 as my next open full size headphone, and then after those maybe save up for a new amp to replace my Aune T1. But for now the T1 is a heck of a little DAC/amp combo. A bit sad I only get the tube sound when going USB, but I like what the package offers. Can't complain at all considering I got it for about $115. And as far as selling goes I may be selling off a couple other things here and there, though they're not really anything special; Monoprice headphones with Beyer DT250 pads and things like that. Just trying to consolidate things into a smaller collection with a focus on end game. I figure the "fun" X1 would go nicely with the reference ADs, plus the X1 would be perfect to use with my BoomPro mic that I currently have on the M-80 when I play using them.

 

I haven't seen anything about the mod. I'll look it up, but I have a potential buyer lined up already and I'm still planning on going through with the sale. That money is needed elsewhere right now.

Finally got Rage to work. seems all I had to do was disable the Steam Community. What a fail.

Axel, if you want... I'm planning on loaning my X1 out to the peeps once I get the MA900 back. I may let them go to one of you guys for a little less since I'm gonna ship it out either way. You'd have to wait until Matt, Evs( if you're still interested in demoing a dark/warm headphone now that you've heard the K712), and calpis have had their runs with the MA900.

Gotta pay my brother for buying his monitor, and selling the X1 would basically break me even mor or less.

Just placed an order for the PX100-II for work use. Kinda been wanting it for a while, and my KSC35 keeps snagging onto things here and there, so I want something I can keep around my neck with no issue.

I recently put the KSC35 clips back on to the KSC35, and man... it really does balance out the sound more than the KSC75 clips. The PX100-II better be comparable...

Axel lives about ~45 minutes from me, so he's also welcome to try my X1s.  I figured he would have heard them at a meet by now, but it hasn't happened yet.

 

The PX100 II is a lot warmer, darker, and thicker with more bass impact than the Koss.  The soundstage is more intimate too.  The clamp on them is fairly strong, a bit too much for my ears for an extended listening session.

Hmm.... you're scaring me about it's comfort. Though things clamping onto my head don't bother me, as long as it's not HD280 Pro clamp. I feel the Parts Express headband to be too loose, so maybe the Px100-II will be a better fit, though nothing beats the KSC75 clips... though the 35 clips are comfy enough and the 35 sounds better with it's own clips.
