If you seriously need isolation, IEMs seem like the clear choice when I think it through. I really only have experience with Shure and Etymotic models. I don't wear the olive-shaped eartips of Shures well, meanwhile Etymotic included several sizes of silicon and foam eartips which go a long way towards finding a long-term comfortable pair. Of course you can get custom molds, which should be awesome biggrin.gif

On IEM soundstage, I agree that there isn't space to create natural occurring soundstage. That said, also From personal experience (FPE? FPEx?), they can create very focused and pinpoint accurate imaging and reference flat FreqResponse, and there are a Lot less shape variables for a surround HTRF to account for with drivers in-ear, so soundstage could be processed into the sound well, and surround could work well with a broader range of individuals (if it takes in-ear driver positioning into account).

I just don't need the isolation of my ER•6i much anymore.

What do I need to get a ps4 online and play bf4, apart from the game and premium?

Mad, your Vomda mic review got some front page love.

I wish K812 had 3,5mm connectors instead of that Lemo thing. Could have been an amazing headset with that VMODA Boompro :mad:

Just for the sake of argument, if I had a pair of K812s, I would likely not be console gaming which means I could easily set up a nice boom mic.

Wow, I didn't think such a short entry would warrant front page coverage, but I ain't complaining. biggrin.gif

I better start really doing some homework on what headphones are compatible with it...

Agreed! I have the X1 paired with mine but would be interested in other options too. Or maybe using an adapter of sorts for those with non-3.5mm removable cables also.

Those headphones without removable cables are better off with the Antlion Modmic, though managing the extra cable will be up to how good your skills are at wire management. I don't possess any skills to hide wires, so not possible for me.

I too have no wire management skillz. BUT for a better can, I would sacrifice the wire mess.

 

BTW, I have narrowed my desired "CLOSED" headphone for both gaming and then music to the following:

 - DT990 Pro 32Ohm (assuming since I will only be using the Astro mixamp)

 - SoundMagic HP100

 

Does anyone know if either of these cans will work with the Vmoda BoomPro mic?

 - Of the open headphone, will the Q701 or Fidelio X1 provide ANY isolation from outside noise?

post #21131 of 37465
The HP100 has a 3.5 mm entry... but the jack entry, itself, is a bit weird. It may or may not fit...

Regarding mad dog's compatibility with the Boompro.

 

The phone socket comes from the side.

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Wouldn't the strait angled boopro look and feel strange coming from the side?, not to mention the constant cable strain.

DT990 Pro is fully open.

As for the Mad Dog... sure it will look a little weird coming out from the side, but the mic placement shouldn't be an issue, and it's flexible.

Think it will fit the HP100?

 

 

Here is the stock cable... 

 

 

It has a locking mechanism... but if the cable fits, it will click in like any other cable entry. The BoomPro may be able to fit inside the housing, from what I see...

I assume it's like the T50RP. I believe that has a locking mechanism, but you can still use most standard cables. Correct me if wrong.

The BoomPro's barrel is skinny up to the mic part...




It'd be nice to test all this out...which is why I can't confirm any twist lock entry headphones...

The Mad Dog comes with a Vmoda cable, which is why I know it will work.
