Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1253

As stated earlier, today, if it's not on the guide, I have:

a. Haven't tried it

b. Don't have enough experience with it

c. Tried it and thought it wasn't worth putting on the guide


I know it may seem like I'm able to try as many gaming cans as I can, but I'm sure I make much less than most of you, and I don't get paid to do this. Most of the headphones I've reviewed/owned have all been out of pocket/very impulsive purchases. I haven't had a review in 3 months, because times are hard, and I can't afford buying things/borrowing them and paying to ship them back, etc. My recent purchases (PS4), were either already paid for ages ago, or I sold stuff to fund it.

I'd love to sit here and review many new headphones/headsets, but reality isn't that simple.

I'm particularly interested in the Sennheiser G4ME One, Audio Technica ATH-ADG1

as far as headsets go...

Surely the G4ME one is a PC360 rebadge.  Look at the product pages.  They didn't even bother to differentiate them.

You're probably right. It may actually be inferior to the PC360, since the vents seem less open...

My guess is they're phasing out the PC labelling and giving them an obvious name for easier recognition.

Though the PC360 was also called the G4ME.

We have our G4MEs, our SLYRs, our KRAKENS.... what's going on with the gaming headset industry and their l337 sp33k? Though judging by the abundant amount of gamers with names like xXXQU1CKSCOP3ZxxX I guess it's understandable that they're targeting a larger audience.


Just waiting for the eventual Beats PRO ELITE GAMING headset, backed up by the best of the best tournament players. Frankly, I'm SHOCKED that they haven't released a Beats gaming headset. From a business standpoint, they would probably be the most popular gaming headset in the world. Love 'em or hate 'em, Beats is a monster of a company (no pun intended), and they care surely profit from gamers as well.

Man .. MLE... you really ought to be professionally reviewing gaming headphones/headsets. There's a resurgence in the HP market; and along with it a huge market in gaming headsets too. A lot of gaming/tech sites are refocusing on audio, and to a man they practically don't know squat.

 

Can't think of anybody else I'd want to review **** like this. There's some 'respected' dude who reviews headphones, who also reviews sneakers .. I mean come on.

Hah, you're talking about Joe, akaTRENT? He's one of my main motivations into starting this guide. His reviews were great.

He stopped reviewing headsets on his youtube account because he got hired by Engadget. He uses his akaTRENT account for shoe reviews now.

I'd call his story a success. He got into the business. And deservedly so.

He also posted here, lol. I haven't seen his reviews lately, so I hope he's still with Engadget.

This is true.  I remember reading a review of the A50s where after devoting several pages to the looks and presentation they spent all of three sentences describing the actual sound.  *facepalm*

Have you ever thought about venturing into creating your own review website?

Change, that would require a lot of web knowledge, editors, capital, etc. Lol. Things I don't have.

Erm, why do we put socks on our X1s? I really dunno can somebody brief me in, please?

post #18791 of 37340

You could probably setup a decent wordpress site that could do it.

Only to keep the pads extra clean.

Or to not get the feeling of pleather hitting the skin. Yes, I hate it that much.
post #18793 of 37340

akaTrent -that's the guy. Yes he was very good and it was unfair of me to mention sneakers in light of his albeit few but excellent headphone reviews. But seeing as we're asking about sock-mods......

To be fair, he could've mentioned on his youtube page that he was gonna start doing sneaker reviews, lol.

MLE has the most consistent review scheme for headphones that I've seen. That's why so many people read it and why we're all begging for more. If someone's getting paid money to do this, you ought to be as well. Screw capitalizatioN and punct!ation. Nobody gives a damn
