Great thread, just what i was looking for. MLE, can you tell me if there is any difference between the sony dir800c unit vs the 2013 mixamp? i got an xbox one to go upstairs and didnt want to move my setup with the xbox360, so i bought the mixamp to pair with the xbox one. Im currently using Sony F1's plugged in to either the dir800c or mixamp and came across your thread in search of a new gaming can that might out perform the F1's. my budget is $300. my use is gaming 90%. only other headphone ive ever tried was the ad700 amd hated the comfort. thinking sony ma900, but if theres a better one in my price range im all in. Suggestions? thanks!
Didn't get a reply so I'll ask another way.....currently use sony f1's for gaming, are akgq701's better for sound whoring?
Also, does the Sony DH decoder http://wireless-headphones-review.toptenreviews.com/pioneer-se-dir800c-review.html here do the exact same thing as the mixamp?
