Only for the moment where I would need voice. ;)

Yeah, I use the Modmic with my AD700s and with the MA900 and Q701 I tested out, I was meaning the few headphones that have a 2.5mm removable cable or some other type of plug rather than 3.5.

Once my camera battery charges a little I'll get a photo of the BoomPro on the Mad Dogs. It's not a bad combo, and I've used them together on multiple occasions.

Don't know if you saw my post from last night... but how are those 1964 Qs working for you? You ever use them for gaming?

I tried my SM64 last night, and (like others mentioned) while IEMs aren't the ideal choice due to lack of soundstage... I was very impressed due to its superb imaging and separation... and above average soundstage for an IEM. And the isolation is unmatched... for those who REALLY need isolation while gaming.

I did have to use westone silicon tips, however, because my complys made them too warm, bassy, and congested for gaming.

As I mentioned, I'll be using them for gaming until my K612 gets back. Not a knock on the 1540... these just have the slightly more forward mids and slightly leaner bass that are needed for my competitive binges (when using the silicon tips).

I guess I did miss this from last night, yeah. I've used the 1964Q for gaming on multiple occasions. They're the best IEMs that I've used in gaming experiments. That said, they'll set you back $550. The soundstage on them can't compare to more budget friendly full size or on-ear headphones. The CIEM that are known to have the largest soundstages are in the $900-1500 range.

 

A good place to look for IEM that could game well is in Chico's Soundstage Head Club.

 

 

Here's a quick and dirty photo for you guys. It's only slightly awkward and works quite well with the Mad Dogs.

Considering the HD800 references on the OP and on this thread, it'd be quite nice of you that you review them.

 

When doing so please bear in mind that they require a solid amp to work properly, considerably above the mixamp.

I picked this mic up after I snatched up that ridiculous Philips X1 deal on amazon. Then I ruined my savings by getting a mix amp for my PS4. Either way, the mic is excellent and the headphone works great with it. I've used the headphone pair for Skype, projects, even talking on the phone. Sounds excellent for my BF4 nights.

A lot of great info here :)

 

I was actually just looking at the BoomPro a few days ago but could not find if it works with my Sennheiser HD 598's. Does anyone know if it will work? I mean as long as the connection fits then the locking mechanism wont matter I assume. Question is does the connector even fit?

 

Thanks guys!

I'm sure MLE will get right on it after you send him a pair with an appropriate amp.

I use headzone as my Dolby decoder. What amp would you recommend with the h1?

If I was to purchase hd800

MLE..thanks for the reply. Your description of the headzone is dead on. What amp would you recommend if I did get the hd800?

This thread has a lot of good information in the TC and you can always ask if you have any questions after that. I'm sure most of us here haven't owned, much less heard a HD800 for an extensive amount of time.

I could only dream of reviewing the HD800, lol. I hear the Vali actually sounded real good with it, for a budget choice.
