Read that countless times. I wanted to hear his own impressions. Always good to hear other opinions on headphones.

Would really like to hear Pro 900 vs XB1000 comparison for 3D headphone virtualization FPS gaming from those who have heard and actually tested both in games.

 

Neither are going to win any accolades for musical or tonal correctness, but fun factor and positioning accuracy comparison would be interesting.

Hello everyone! I'm about to get some PC360 and a mixamp as I heard wonders from this combo :p

 

But I've never heard Dolby Headphone before, just played stereo. Please tell me that Dolby Headphone is better than this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUrk2W_r5fc&fmt=18 'cause this is a bit crappy sound. I saw this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fligG_SLnOc&feature=related and is f*uckin great, I hope DD is more like this last one. But this last one is binaural recording so I think is better than DD.

Dolby Headphone is great for positional audio, I can't imagine playing any game without it.

 

Has anyone used this mic?

I'm looking for an alternative to a clip on mic

post #2150 of 37283

you should buy the  Labtec LVA7330 it's a good mic

You'd need a 1/8" female to male cable, which can be had for next to nothing + the cost of shipping.

Hello gamers, my Q701's came in! The headband is pretty comfy and audio cues are good. I can tell from the front/back(footsteps) no problem and no ear fatigue after long hrs of gaming. I have them hooked up th the fiio E9 and then the mixamp. I'll keep tested them out some more before I give my review.

post #2153 of 37283

Look forward to it. I see you own/ed the Ad700s, would love to see a comparison.

Please elaborate how you're keeping a Dolby Digital signal from the E9 to the Mixamp. It should be the other way around, since you've been feeding the Mixamp a stereo signal from the E9, whereas the Mixamp would feed a Dolby headphone signal to the E9...

so could anyone tell my is there significant differences in sound quality/sig from old and new batch of pro-proline 750 ?

and saw on some reading, that some ppl prefer pro 550 over 750 ? is 750 lack of some soundstage/bass ?

 

post #2156 of 37283

Yeah, its the other way around, the mixamp(hooked up to 360 with optical), the fiio E9( hooked to the mixamp with the 3.5 mm cable),I bought some mid price cable then the q701's hooked into the fiio E9.I'm using the 1/4  cord. I still own the ad 700's and I'll hook them up tonight afterwork and I'll get back to you. I don't know if all cans  are like this but when there is a chopper in the air (blk ops/mw2)it overides the other sounds like footsteps coming near you. So far,  I have only 20hrs on the 701's. I'd like to thank ENVY for this thread because I wouldnt have known these headphones existed. My online gaming sure improved, and the other day some fella invited me to try out for his clan because I did so well on FFA(blk ops).

This is exactly what I bought, but from eBay instead. The mic looks exactly the same. It works okay, but the sound is a bit crackly. Might be the cheapo cable, though, I'll have to investigate. Even so, AU$2.50 ain't bad, and it works great with the Mixamp. The only downside of doing it this way is that there's no mic mute switch.

 

Now I've just got to figure out a way to connect it to my DT770s. Velcro didn't quite work as I intended; keeps peeling off and it's not stable enough. Might look into something more permanent anyway.

post #2158 of 37283
I use a piece of hanger shaped to fit around the earpad with a microphone attached to it. It's non permanent and stable.

I've actually bought some cable sleeving and plan on seeing if I can't embed a 1/8" female to female connector piece into an earpad. Then the mic and cable would both be detachable.

I'm not a PC gamer, but I would look into whatever soundcard has Dolby headphone/Dolby Digital Live, like the Asus Essence STX... sorry, I really don't know about soundcards.

None of these headsets need much, so an amp isn't necessary.
