Wow, the X1 for $150. That is mind blowing. If I had the funds, I'd totally get them. Half tempted on selling the MA900s, getting the X1 and a V moda boom mic. Though since the A30s will behere soon, I won't need to do that, so it's not necessary.

You like the X1's better than the MA900?

No. They're different. I like them both about the same. But the X1 has the advantage of being able to become a headset with the vmoda mic cable. The MA900's cable isn't removable, so I'm stuck using my clip on mic, which loves to tangle.

I'm looking for simplicity and versatility now. If I hadn't ordered the A30 bundle, I'd have bought the X1.

I haven't found anything wrong with the stock cable compared to my V-MODA BoomPro cable. Sounds similar to each other.

Hello everyone. Out of suggestion. Can anyone help me with a solution for this "problem"? > sound-card-to-play-both-pc-and-playstation-surround-audio-is-it-possible-astro-mixamp

 

Thank you all in advance

I sent them an email about a refund of the price difference and got a response almost instantly. Refund incoming in 2-3 days. Now that's customer service for you.

Amazon? 

 

Honestly I thought they have gone down hill a bit lately. You can hardly buy cheap cables, and connectors any more as you have to spend at least $25 if it is considered an "add on". Then on top of that their shipping has become ridiculously overpriced if you do not qualify for free shipping. I was playing around with an order of around $25, and the total price was $50 total once the shipping was included. They also raised the free shipping up to $35. Granted this could all be avoided by purchasing their prime membership, but I do not do enough amazon shopping to warrant that. Also you could avoid Amazon Items all together. I pretty much avoid Amazon now unless something big is on sale. I was purchasing cheap CDs, and what not for a little while.

 

Their CS is top notch though.

I generally prefer Ebay for international orders though Amazon has improved there considerably IMO.

Amazon.uk is pretty good though [especially with frequent discounts]

Have you read the news?

I hope you test them both (or at least the open ones) as soon as possible. Make it happen sennheiser, send him one.

Alas those headphones are basically reskinned versions of their older models. Read MLE's review of the PC360 - it's a great competitive headset.

Have you thought about getting the MA900 modded so it can have a hanging entry like this?

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

... but with a 3.5mm entry, instead, for the boom mic? Just a thought...

I can't speak to the sonic differences, but the Recon3D can definitely handle chat.

hi, has anyone tested dss1 vs recon3d?

Both devices have been discussed plenty throughout the thread.

 

One uses Dolby Headphone (DSS) and the other THX Trustudio (Recon).

I probably already know the answer. I already ordered my x1 and they still haven't shipped. They must have sold out now as I don't see the $150 price. Any chance of getting an adjustment or am I sol for working mornings and being asleep by the time the deal was posted.

Like wouls it have been documented somewhere that it was on sale?

If you havent received the item or its within 7 days of delivery then they should be able to refund you the difference. Give them a call!
