I just finished watching some videos and that seems right. So looks like time to save the pennies for a mix amp

Congrats. I wish I had already hit that point. So far I've only done so with my work headphones, the M-80, and my CIEM, the 1964-Q. But I am digging the L2s and I spent a few minutes with the T1 earlier before packing it up with most of my headphones. Super comfy, but would be even more so if the cups were slightly oval shaped like the HD650s.

I've had the V-MODA BoomPro for about 2 months now and I've gotta say that the cable is pretty horrible. It tangles really easily, a few strands from the braiding have come loose near the top and the braiding has ripped apart maybe half an inch to the point where I can see a little bit of the plastic that covers the actual wiring. The product still works just like new but the cabling looks like crap. I don't think V-MODA will offer me a replacement either since they don't consider cosmetic damage a part of their "premier warranty".

 

I take care of all my electronics really well. I handle with care and always place the items in a safe place. I'm not sure if my cable is just defective or if others will eventually run into these issues. I'll contact V-MODA tomorrow and see how they handle my situation.

 

To MLE, I thought the MA900's bass was a little too anemic for my tastes. The X1's bass is where it's at. Both great headphones and I do miss my MA900's at times. Too bad about the non-removable cable though.

Contentment for me is...not easy. I have been very happy with many headphones to be end all in terms of sound, but then comfort gets in the way. Or I get a super comfy headphone, but sound isn't what I want. I think if I were to add things up, there are only a few headphones that I could live with, and have the least amount of tradeoffs:

HD650
K702 Annie
MA900

Notice how all 3 of these are open, warm, non-fatiguing headphones. the 650 works because of it's oval shaped earcups which I prefer greatly over round ones, as it's easier to lay down with. Both the AKg and Sony are a little too big to lay down with.

That's it. yup. Where's the X1? Unfortunately, the bass needs a little more control for my taste. What about the D7000? The D7000 would almost be perfect, if it weren't for the pads, and the headband which doesn't sit right on my head.

I've had the BoomPro since August and while I agree with you that it does tangle, my experience with the durability is quite different. I haven't had any of the braiding come loose or rip open. I wear collared shirts quite often and the cable does tend to rub against them. I also have a V-Moda audio cable on my M-80s at work. Neither the BoomPro nor the audio cable show any sign of unusual wear due to friction or normal use. It could be possible that you received a bad one from the batch.

I'm thinking I got a bad egg as well. I haven't seen anyone else complain about the braiding coming apart in any way. I hope V-MODA comes through and offers me a replacement. I'll find out tomorrow. Doesn't V-MODA advertise the cable to be tangle-free?

I've never seen them advertise that it doesn't tangle. The BoomPro does tangle a bit more easily than the audio cable I have. And from what I've read about their customer service, it seems V-Moda is a classy company, so they may take care of you in an exchange. I've asked them about pads before and they said that if they ever wear out I can send in my pair to get them replaced, even outside the warranty period.

Do you untangle the cable or leave it as is? It's pretty annoying since it's not so easy to untangle.

I try my best to keep it untangled. You're right, it does resist untangling but I can usually get it looking like normal.  Since I keep in one place and use it only for gaming it doesn't get out of control.

Starting to write in the Astro A30 review. I know I said I need a break, but I'd like to get the A30 and Ultrasone HS-15 out of the way, so I can be in peace for awhile. wink.gif

So this would assume control game volume on DSS and chat volume on chat adaptor?

 

Hey, I managed to get it all working using a couple adapters. You cant plug the mic straight into the chat adapter. You need a PC Headset to Mobile phone adapter. You plug the mic into the mic end of the pc headset adapter, and then I used a 1 female to 2 male 3.5mm adapter to split the headphones, one to DSS, the other to chat adapter. I listed out instructions earlier in the thread, but they are easily missed. Feel free to PM if you have any questions.

Anybody ever tried for gaming; Stax 202 with 212 amp, and the Astro Mixamp. I wonder how this setup will work in FPS like COD for positioning
