Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1251

post #18751 of 37362

Hi I am new here :) lurked for a while. I wish I had found this place earlier..I would never have bought those horrible tritton ax pros 5.1. Sound like cheap headphones you would pickup in a 7/11, surround is just terrible and they broke in 4 months. My gaming needs a sound upgrade. I need something that would give me good positional audio in cod and battlefield in the range of $100-120. I also watch movies, and play non multiplayer games like last of us etc so I dont wanna sacrifice too much on bass. I have a ps3 and earforce dss.

 

I am on the fence with the ath-a700x for a balance of good positional audio and decent bass(from amazon reviews) I am not to sure about ad700s, people say bass is lacking and I really dont have cash to spare for a dual setup ad700 for multiplayer and some other bass heavy hadphones for movies and casual gaming. How is the a700x soundstage compared to ad700 and bass? and are they fit for my role overall? thanks :)

May I suggest going with the MA900? That's if you can extend you're budget a little bit. IMO, it's the best bang for the buck at under $200.

 

The AD700 is extremely bass lacking if you want balance, and the A700x would not be ideal for competitive gaming when compared to an open headphone (that's if you are referring to the closed A700x and not the open AD700x).

I would say HD558 would be a good option too.

 

Pretty much in his price range and certainly more balanced than the AD700.  Excellent soundstage capabilities and if he wants more bass for single player he can rape it with the DSS bass boost. 

 

Ad700 is too dry and bright for anything but pure soundwhoring.  A700 is closed and compromised.

Send me the $5000 and I'll send you a TH900 and a HD800...

MLE, if only you'd get paid for how many hits this thread gets.

 

1 million and counting........................

Just want something that's good in games (Dolby headphone preferably.....maybe THX dunno) yet looks ultra cool out on the street. I don't want to get bullied though.

I'm afraid there just aren't a lot of options in that price range.  You should save up a little more and expand your budget to $100,000.

it depends on how you define the term "ultra cool" ...

Full-sized heaphones that aren't the consumer grade brands like Beats aren't ginna be 'cool'.

I prefer something discrete above bling, and the KSC35 fits the mold.

To me, the only headphones that don't look ridiculous when worn are ones that have very little depth, and stick close to the head. Something along the lines of V-modas. I don't like V-modas styling, but they don't look awkward when worn.

Audio-Technica's ear suit line, like the ES7 also. only probably is they hurt like hell.

Hey thanks for the reply. I also note that dt990 pro 250 on amazon for 145. How do these compare?
