+1 :rolleyes:

You should delete your link. Head-fi doesn't like people linking to group buy sites. You could get the K612 at Razor Dog Audio for a while with a code. I can't find it and I don't know if it still works. Maybe Change knows off-hand, I think he was the one that mentioned it.

Fair enough.  But all other things equal, that's a massive difference.  When everything else is so close, it's something to help with the decision.

 

That said, trying them both is probably the best thing to do.  Then return the MA when you discover that's it's close enough.  ;)

Agree with Mike. These links shouldn't be posted here. People have been banned and threads have been locked because of them. I don't want to see this thread locked.

Thanks much. Now if we can get Rooster to edit the quote we'll be perfect. I have no issue with that site personally, but it's best to stick to the forum rules.

If you have a small head, maybe look into the smaller versions of the K550's, the K551's and the even more portable and stylish K545's. The K545's were on my shortlist, but I think they might be too diminutive for my 'Elf' ears. :)

 

Honestly, if you're new to headsets and headphones like I am, don't be afraid to experiment. Find a few cans you like the visual style of, are on sale, have the features you require (such as closed-back, detachable cable, carrying pouch, etc.), and have generally favourable reviews, and maybe consider buying a few different ones and sending back the ones you don't get along with as well. Of course, if you like them all, you may end up not knowing which ones to part with. ^_-


And don't solely go by the guide here. It's just one man's opinion, and he hasn't reviewed all the headphones out there. I had to look elsewhere because none of the ones listed fitted my criteria.

 

If you're confused by the jargon that people use in reviews, so am I! That's why it might be better to focus on features and price more so than sound signature. Because let's face it, basing  your opinion on another person's interpretation is rather silly by definition. There are so many factors that need to be considered, such as source music, amplification, how tight the seal is, etc. Then of course you have the myriad of different ways the human ear is formed based on your DNA.

 

I've not tried the X1's so I can't say how well you will get along with the lack of isolation. It's been on my mind as well. I live in Ireland, though, so returning items bought from Amazon or elsewhere is expensive and not easy. Otherwise I'd buy them and see for myself whether I can live with the noise or not.

 

thanks for the help.  I ended up buying the HP50s.  Now all I have to do is wait until I get them so I can try them out.

hey everyone,

 

check this out :

 

http://www.razerzone.com/ca-en/gaming-audio/razer-megalodon/

 

 

it is basically a new surround engine, the so called maelstrom engine...I emailed razer and asked them whether this engine is the same engine used in the razer surround app, and they said that it isn't...I hope razer will make a separate sound card that can be used with any headphone, kinda like a sound card like Xonar U3 that isn't attached to a headset/phone...

 

it has cool features ... you can increase the volume of virtual surround speakers...

It's not really anything new, it's been around since 2009. I find the headset uncomfortable.

post #21869 of 37400

what about the surround engine ? is it as good as the DH and razer app ?

 

I only care about the sound card...I wish they made a separate sound card...like just the soundcard part with headphone output and mic in jacks...

I looked at the PC363D, but it's not wireless.
