Thank you for your posts, ze humor makes my day ^_^
Shows promise, more options seem to be popping up, so companies are at least recognizing the demand even if nobody has produced a optimized product yet.
Mid-fi is the best value obviously, but I do listen enough that I can justify owning one hi-fi can and I know it will get used and appreciated.
Testing the T90 I was surprised that even some older recordings and stuff that I never thought of being perfectly recorded can still sound better on the T90. Like some soundtracks from the 90's and some 50's/60's jazz. The T90 still extracts more detail from them that I didn't even think was there. That makes me feel better about the HD800, knowing my music library can still work with it. Now, if the recording is a hissy sibilant compressed sounding mess, than something like the T90 or HD800 isn't going to fix anything or due it any favors.
So are you planning on keeping the K712 and Q701 both or something? I thought you would sell the Q701 and then get some angled pads for the K712. I don't think it's worth owning both of them as they're too similar once you mess with the pads.
I'm still trying to suss them out and compare. Haven't even used the Q701 since getting the K712 though, trying to give myself adjustment time. Haven't had the chance to swap pads yet, or rebias my tube amp for my fav tube (been listening to my K712's straight out of my iPod and Recon3D USB, tbh). And theeeen, the MA900 just arrived yesterday, so I gotta give time to that. I probably will let one go, but I can afford to wait a bit (probably the sale will fund my first smartphone).
I'm glad you like the T90! But... kinda sad that you don't think you'll keep it, like it could be an end-game contender like you felt with the Q701. I mean it's good you enjoy it, but I get the sense you're just trying it on your way to summit-fi.
Where is there you are?
Am I awesome? Sorry but I don't think so. I just made a lot of use of the Google Translator. This what I'm writing here right now is, in much of, supported by it. Even so, thanks. I'm still not understanding whether that word was suitable. Whatever. It may be because both Portuguese and English make much use of Latin words. e.g. In Portuguese, we have the verb "manifestar". I think this is a cognate. Two languages and the same word. It's funny, is not it? Once again, thank you so much for your reply.
One point that makes me look more likely to the Sony than the AKG is the fact that the former is much easier to drive. Furthermore, there is the price point. Do you think it's a good idea to use the same headset for PC and console? If so, the MA900 has advantage because I intend to use it with a Sound Blaster Z series. As its amplification is enough good for the Sony but is not for AKG, and as it is not a good idea to use an external amp with SB-Z...
A more question: Do you or anyone know whether NFL Madden for PS3 will be avaiable for streaming for PS4?
Manifest fit the context of your sentence well enough, I was just surprised because it is the kind of word that people rarely use in conversation.
SoundBlaster Z will have enough power to drive the AKGs, and it's fine to hook up an external amp to it. No reason NOT to use the MA900 with both computer and console, I think it'll do fine. From my first impression of the headphones, the AKGs simply are better if you can afford them, but the MA900 doesn't embarrass itself and is pretty good for the price.
