And i was thinking about buying the zalman mic and then maybe get a blue yeti when i got more money. Will these work with the MA900's, the mixamp and ps3/ps4?

 

Yes, they don't require an amp to sound good. The Zalman mic isn't that great. See if you can get one of the Neewer clip-on mics or a dealextreme clip-on. They will work with anything the mixamp will work with.

I'd get a mixamp pro 2011 or 13 or 5.8,a pair of Philips X1, and a v-moda boompro.

Maybe consider a Schiit Magni depending on which mixamp you get.

 

It's nice that you're trying to help, but he didn't even list the X1 in his post.

Based on his lack of reading, I assumed he didn't see it was the clear choice.  :)

Or he's not able to get them easily in his region. The MA900s are available and cheaper than everything else he listed, they are the clear choice.

I actually missed the Philips Fidelio X1 and now when i have watched it it looks real nice too. Is it better then the MA900? It looks more sturdy and that's real good. I just have two concerns about it and that is it looks like it cant be adjusted so i am not 100% it would fit me and the second thing is that it is not as good as the MA900 for "sound whoring" but maybe the difference is not that huge? And the Fidelio X1 is just a little more expensive.

 

About the mic, i have only found the zalman mic, some even worse mics and the table mics here in my county. So there is not much of an option with that. The V-moda boompro doesnt excist here and i dont want to import stuff.

Is it just me, or has there been a trend of Fidelio X1 FOTM hype lately, especially in this thread?

I think it's the realisation that the X1 plus the utility of the V-Moda mic makes it the perfect all round gaming headset (open at the very least). Modmic looks good, but the extra wire needed makes it look, by comparison, clunky on any headphone.

It's not you. I haven't heard them, so I can't judge them, but with the MA900 being discontinued and the price going up, there's no reason for someone not to mention the X1s as an alternative. The X1 doesn't need an amp either and pairs well with the Boom Pro. It makes it an easy recommendation.

If you prefer basshead cans, that is.

I haven't heard that much. It's kind of hard for an open headphone to be a basshead can IMO. I'm not going to argue this point, because again, I haven't heard them, and even then, you're free to make your own judgement on that. I do know that a good majority of people find them enjoyable as an all around headphone that works well with all types of games.

To me, it's more of a borderline basshead can... but not completely there...

I think the $150 flash sale followed by the $70 price drop played a big part in that.

 

They were already one of the best all-around choices for gaming (and music), and the ability to add a mic and the aforementioned price drop have caused an increase in the recommendations for them here.

X1's basshead?? A basshead headphone will practically smother the **** out of the mids and highs - the X1 is nowhere close.... I love the thing.

post #21478 of 37356

Finally, an IEM with a stellar soundstage (for an IEM)... the Sony XBA-H3. The SM64 was nice, but nowhere near as wide as these...

 

 

I will be testing them on BF4, later tonight. Not sure how they will perform, as far as competitive gaming goes, because these have some big bass similar to that of the SRH1540.

What would be a good pair of closed back headphones to use with the stereo adapter for the xbox one? Ideally I don't want to have an amp dangling from my controller. My budget is $400. Currently have the HD 280 Pros. 

post #21480 of 37356

It's basshead territory for me and my preferences. I get that might not be everyone else's preferences, so I'm just speaking for me. But I don't think I'm the only one who classifies it as much.
