How much sound does a headphone leak, and a demo comparing between different styles (open/closed/etc) of headphones:

Last time I checked Samsung and Sony both sourced their S-PVA panels from the S-LCD company.
Samsung is also notorious for having a panel lottery. My TV uses no less than 4 different types of panels in the same model.
Yeah, fortunately I was able to find out the code for determining the panel on mine so I was able to nab a 1st party S-PVA panel.
A ****-tonne of people have been referred to this thread in their search for a good set of gaming cans. Thank you loads mate. This is the No.1 place to go to for reviews of the current best gaming headsets and headphones. There is nothing else on the internet like it. Don't let this slide please.
You're onto a good thing here; so right now do not quit. Hopefully some manufacturer's will send you their sample's for testing. And I bet you've punted a lot of custom their way over the last few years.
I can and I've tried. Its the silent cinema headphone technology thats messing with my sound mix. It amps the signal and changes the mix no matter how I hook it up. I can't turn it off. It automatically turns on when you plug in headphones. I guess I just prefer dolby headphone to game with my Q701s.
I thought real LED displays were the ones with NO backlights because the pixels are MADE of LEDs instead of an LCD matrix. Natural local dimming!
That, of course, limits things to OLED/QLED panels that don't have much presence in the market yet...maybe one day, we'll have awesome 120 Hz OLED panels with >=2560x1440 resolution and NVIDIA G-SYNC, among other things.
In the meantime, though, I guess I gotta settle for a 1080p LCD like this if the FW900 bites the dust.
Unfortunately, the HDTV market is full of crap that's undesirable for gaming (like post-processing with lots of added input lag and advertising 120 Hz displays that don't actually have 120 Hz video inputs, making the feature useless), and the ones that meet my standards are...well above my family's budget, to say the least. If you think Head-Fi makes your wallet feel inadequate, then just wait 'til you visit the AVS Forum...
We could also use a new one, because our decade-old Hitachi 43FWX20B is having convergence problems. Yes, our primary living room HDTV is a rear-projection CRT set that doesn't even have HDMI ports. I have an idea on how to fix it, but it'll require a couple of ICs, some soldering work, and some improved cooling to make sure the replacements don't overheat.
I'm sure you also would've taken up my SR-Lambda + SRM-T1 loaner offer if that weren't the case, but it's a bit late for that now...
