Right, it's the Alpha Dog!
I read yours over the Alpha Dog thread already.
Keep up the good work.
I'm pretty sure Chico has done a sock mod on his X1. That's a great way to keep them clean and it's not supposed to alter the sound.
Hi Mad Lust Envy, great guide!
I have a qustion, I'm pretty much an hardcore gamer, I recently bought a xonar stx and i'm gonna buy my first headphone.
I noticed that the best headphones for gaming lack in bass, and I would like to use the stx for music and bluray too, with a pair of cans that gives it justice.
My question is: if I buy something like the Fidelio, or the dt990 (that from your guide are fun but even competitive), and I set a profile for gaming, decreasing the bass and increasing mids and highs, can I obtain that detail whoring of something like ad700? Or I have to buy ad700 for gaming and something else for music and films?
Do you have any suggestions? Gaming is my priority, so I can plan to buy a second pair of cans in future for everything else.
Thanks to everyone who will help me =)
Hey Mad Lust Envy, it's me again, the one who was asking about the Phillips Fidelio X1s :) (Here)
So, I bought them and they are really, really good. Much better bass and a great soundstage. Now I have a few more questions :)
1. The 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable and adapter that comes with it seems to be ok, but you recommend buying a different one. Will a different increase sound performance due to no adapter?
2. Also, I got the Xonar DGX Soundcard and eventually I got it to work but my driver can't detect it, when I open Asus Audio Center it says 'Can't find any device'. I want to tweak sound settings but without driver access I can't What do I do?
Thanks for your help in the past too :)
1) If you're using an adapter you'll want something like this in order to not put strain on the jack into which you're plugging. MLE recommends a different cable in order to improve the sound slightly and also not require an adapter.
2) Contact Asus support here.
Yay! Finally. I was considering the SRH1540, but I wanna read up on these too. Thanks :]
First of all thank you for the reply,
I heard good things about the titanium, and maybe i'll try out that soundcard in the future, but also lots of players prefers dolby headphones for gaming and what I like about the stx is the internal amp so I can choose headphones without thinking too much about the impedence.
I'm pretty sure you're right, probably there's not an all round headphones, but i'm asking cause this guide is based on console, and since i'm a pc players with a soundcard maybe there's a particular headphones that can be set for gaming and for music/movies with good results.
Aside from that, I really like the q701, they look awesome. The reason I haven't bought them yet is they're sooo much pricey than ad700 and for gaming maybe ad700 are the better choice...dunno
