One question I have: how's the wearing comfort? Many people applaud the HD800 comfort...

 

I can confirm that the HD800 is excellent in comfort, it feels wonderful. So if the K812 is just as comfortable that's saying a lot.

Spending more time with this MMX 300, listening to music...geez, this thing hammers bass notes into my ears in a way I'm just not quite used to, if the source calls for it. I would NEVER call this "bass-light" by any means.

 

This is going to require some adjustment if I'm to use this as my main headphone for a while...

Sounds like a bass heavy MMX300...

The complete opposite of what the more recent impressions on the MMX300 have been. Again, inconsistency on Beyer's part.

I agree for the most part mle. it does have a beats type sound with a lofty bottom end but it's much tighter and being that it's a dynamic driver that goes down to 5 it does have some rumble that might feel like resonance but i never experienced it getting in the way of anything.   didn't get to hear enough music to hear any hollowness but it did feel a bit compressed.  will have to borrow again. I don't think the midrange is recessed though.  I agree there is some trickery going on with the imaging because vocals are clearly separated from the rest of the range but i don't think they are recessed.  they where never covered up and the headphone almost seamed focused on the midrange with the highs and lows having their own domains.So i think i see what you're saying with the pseudo soundstage but i quite like it.  It is not your typical flat, open sound but i have never been more engaged with the sound.  To me, it's easier to comprehend the sound from lesser dynamic audio.   Have you heard the Th-900?  they have a fairly similar frequency response and i'm hoping they have a more reference like resolution that is more resolving headphone of more dynamic audio.

No, but I've owned thee D7000, which is what the TH900 sounds most like based on what those who have owned both have said. The D7000 is in a whole other stratosphere from the D600. Like... night and day.

This is why I haven't owned a Beyer, to this day. It's actually the only well known brand I have yet to try...

 

Pitty... because what people describe, sometimes, make them sound intriguing.

I bought the 600ohm DT770 because of all the reviews stating it was very well balanced and a little bass light, which I actually wanted. What I got was possibly the most bass I've ever heard on any headphone, with the exception of the XB500 (which wasn't even as fatiguing). Like, it added bass to everything. It was a mess.

They only headphones they're consistent with is their 880s/990s from my experience. However driver variation made two different 600ohm DT990s sound a little different when I compared side by side.

The Seinheiser G4ME ZERO seems to be getting good reviews, it's pricey at 280$, but it has a great mic and looks comfortable and has a good build. Should pair well with a SoundBlaster Omni, I think that's what I might do. Anyone have any opinions on the headset?

Pretty sure they're rebadged PC350/360s... Like Chicolom pointed out, the Game One's page was identical to the PC360's page. Nothing was changed... at all, except the images.

Slap a new fresh coat of paint, call it new. Taken right out of AKG's playbook.

Of course, Sennheiser can always prove me wrong and send these to me for testing/reviewing. wink.gif

Yeah I suspected that, the 350 SE is a good 90$ cheaper on Amazon...Hmm...

The earpads do look more comfortable on the ZERO compared to the 350 SE. Probably not worth the extra price, I will think this over a bit, I did just nab the SoundBlaster Omni off Amazon for 55$ grand total after tax. So at least that investment is done, seemed like a great deal.

Yeah.  "G4ME ZERO" and it's open variant "G4ME ONE" are both very likely rebadges and thus overpriced.

 

If you want the closed headset go for the PC350 for ~$100 less: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-Special-Edition-Performance-Headset/dp/B008O510Y8

 

Personally I think Sennheisers pleather pads look horrible, so I'd go with the PC360 (same as the G4ME ONE) http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-360-Headset-Pro-Gaming/dp/B003DA4D2U

 

Plus the open one should have a better sound quality soundstage.  Sennheiser doesn't really seem to do closed headphones all that well.

 

Or just get an HD558 + your own mic (modmic) http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-504631-HD-558-Headphones/dp/B004FEEY9A

I think once my warranty ends, I'll have someone recable my MA900... or at least have it where it has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and use a Vmoda boompro mic cable.

Yeah I agree, it all comes back to me now wanting sound leakage, but knowing open has better sound argh...

Also when it says the PC 360 are HiFi, what exactly does that mean, like even in BF4 between headphone and HiFi what is the difference?

Marketing jargon. Don't pay attention to terms like hifi and hd sound, etc.
