Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1304

post #19546 of 37442

I was wondering how does the MA900 compares to the AKGs? [Q701, K612, K712, K702 Annies - either of these or any other model.. not that there are :P].

How different is the signature? I was thinking to get the taste of an AKG sound...

I'd appreciate any help, as I am currently thinking about getting a basic Audio GD DAC/amp [11.32, 15.32 or Compass] and an AKG to back it up, but I am not sure if there'd be appreciable difference in any direction.

Thanks!

Has anyone used the V Moda BoomPro Microphone? http://v-moda.com/boompro-microphone/

 

I wonder if this is same quality as the Antlion Modmic

Search is your friend. I've talked a out it here in the forum. It's a very nice mic. It is easier to use than the modmic if your headphones have a detachable cable.

Happy new year everyone!



So, his Highness Kojima, God to us all, twitted this picture. Does anyone know what headphone is that? Look like some Focal, but I'm most likely wrong.

Sony Z1000?



What Metal Gear Solid game is that? I still have yet to play one...but it's always fun to watch someone play it. I still want to play MGS4: Guns of the Patriots.

The HD598 is the polar opposite of the XB500. I don't think, hell, I know it won't satisfy you in the bass. The 598 is mid centric. I don't personally like it for music in any shape.

Everything will be a huge difference from the XB500. You're gonna be giving up a looooot of bass for anything else. Not that the XB500 is a good headphone for me. I personally owned it and sold it immediately after. So don't expect any similarity on my guide. You might do best with a DT770 Pro 80 as far as what's in the HD598 price range.

hmm damn alright. i'm actually not a huge fan of the xb500s either despite putting at least 2000 hours of solely music listening into them so far because the bass seems to drown everything else out so much so that i can't focus on lyricism in hip hop as well anymore (i listen to hip hop primarily) but they are definitely fun. i was thinking the 558 foam modded/598 would be like an intermediate so i could still get some bass/feel it but properly listen to my library.

 

the dt770 are a little out of my range and i dont have a Xonar anymore for virtual surround anyway so ill have to onboard stereo them but regardless i dont want the same competitive shortcomings the xb500 (almost no sense of position/staging etc) are giving me. i feel like the bloated bass would cause these same problems

it also seems like id have to get to buying two completely different headphones instead of looking for the perfect compromise (which i thought the Senns would be lol)

On a technical level, the K712 is a slightly better headphone, meaning it has little extra bit of detail and refinement.  It's not a huge difference though.  It is NOT in a "completely different league".  In terms of signatures it's going to be a draw based on personal preference since one is a little more balanced and the other is a little more fun.

 

If you're looking for a complete upgrade from the X1 though, I don't really think the K712 is it.   The K712 is basically more of a sidegrade than an true upgrade, since they're both very nearly on the same level in many respects.

 

TY Chico.

 

The X1 doesn't seem to do it for me - it doesn't offend in any way; it's a great fun experience and is great in games. It's annoyingly a complete toe tapper with music, but from my point of view it unforgivably just seems to fold the notes into eachother. In Head-Fi terms it's muddy. I really really do require something more detailed. Much more. You mention the T90.. expensive. Something I'll look into though.

 

I'll be getting a Compass 2/Sabre soon (uber great deal - one that I could not ever ever pass up... like ever)... but that's not going to raise the X1's game too much. From now on I'm looking for treble sparkle (often seen as a drawback.. or even fatiguing).. .each to their own. 990's maybe

 

$600 fat ones is the limit.. .................. The X1's stay though.. I love them. And Happy New Year to you all.

!!!

I think that's the one! Thanks. biggrin.gif

And that's the next Metal Gear Solid game, Ground Zeroes. Or better, the prologue to the next MGS, which will be called The Phantom Pain. You've still got about three or four months before the next game comes out, so go play MGS4! wink.gif
