Random question: My AVR has 3 DH settings (1, 2, 3) with 1 being the narrowest and 3 being the widest. Do people just default to 3 for gaming for the wider soundstage or is it a preference thing?
Right now I have my Xbone optical out going into my AVR. From there I have my Recon3D hooked up and I also have DH through the AVR's headphone jack (it's an older HK). I like the THX surround but I do plan on testing both to see which is best for me and I want to make sure I'm using the best settings.
I have a set of X1's on the way and I have a set of Q701's that I scored at a local pawn shop for $150 (practically new, still in box, etc). I will be testing both of those as well and selling off the one I like least.
So far, the Q701 is great for gaming but kind of **** for movies and the music I like (Djent, metal, prog rock/metal, psybient, etc). I assume this is because of the relative dearth of bass. The high and mids are fantastic but a bit much for my music and the lack of bass sucks for movies.
I also find them to be pretty comfortable but the bumps tend to start hurting after an hour or two. Evshrug suggested using one of those baby seat belt pads, which I happen to have sitting around since I have two car seats and I'm about to buy a third (sigh). I'll try that if I decide to keep the Q's, but from what I've read, I suspect the X1's will be more to my liking.
