I just ordered mine. Give me a month or so with it and, if you're interested, I'll send it your way with an amp for review. It'd be interesting to see how they'll stack up in a gaming situation.

Once I'm done with:

DNA On Ear, Astro A30, Ultrasone HS-15 (thanks Calpis!) I'll consider reviewing something else, lol. Let me first get through all this... :'(

Don't forget my HE-400i, price depending of course. Or I may splurge on myself and get the 560, still undecided. Longer wait for the 400i.

Isnt it like a $400 difference? Hard pill to swallow.

Can anyone confirm if the ATH-M50's work with the BoomPro?

The original M50, no. Cable isn't detachable. M50x, the cabke is removable, but apparently someone asked Audio Technica directly, and they said the proprietary twist lock input wouldn't work. So I'll say, probably not.

It's fat at the jack. I doubt it would fit the X1 for instance (the cup/mounting would get in the way). I'd bet it's a quality mic though (maybe the same as on the Beyer 300), but be careful.

 

I asked them about this and they say it's <1 ohm so no resistance worries.

The plastic/rubber enclosure around the input plug that goes into the headphone looks chunkier than the Boompro. That'll limit the amount of compatible headphones that'd be able to use it, especially ones with recessed input jacks or locking mechanisms.

I've got this boom mic from Radioshack

 

It seems to fit just fine into the X1 and the boom ends up in the right spot.  I haven't actually tested the mic portion of it yet though :tongue_smile:

Twice as expensive, less likely to fit many headphones compared to the BoomPro... hmm, I'll take my chances with the BoomPro, though the Beyer one looks legit.

Nice find, Chico. If I didnt have the Boompro, I'd easily try that one, though I like that the Vmoda cable is practically indestructible.

Please let me know how it works out, that seems like an awesome cheap alternative to the BoomPro.  I always worry about the longevity of any cable with a volume slider (fraying seems inevitable), so I'm hesitant to drop $30, but I could easily stomach $8 if the quality is comparable to my cheap Zalman.

It's better than the Zalman clip-on. But problem with the Auvio is the built quality... that in-line volume controller, ugh. But hey, $8 right? :)

Matrix M-Stage. Best entry level amp I heard with the HD 800. Very popular in Germany.

Okay, thanks. I was half asleep when I wrote that, so I was really talking about the M50's with the detachable cable, haha.
