Not sure if it's available in the UK or not though.  What was nice about this one was that a reviewer had confirmed that it worked great on the BoomPro, so I decided to give it a shot.

Glad to hear they're getting it sorted out. I've only had good dealings with them so far and I'd love to continue to do business with them.

I'm supposed to receive the new BoomPro according to rep David. Amazing!

I've pondered hitting the 1-click purchase on some hd650s today. Worried I won't like the treble. It's either those or the w1000x. On the graphs the x has great treble extension. People say it's. Got a romantic quality to it. But I can't find any comparisons to the 650. I could just keep waiting as these funds are technically for the he560, th900 or jade 2. Just socks I don't have any headphones now except my a40s.... Bleh

It'll work great; I know that Stax setup first-hand, alongside a few other Lambda setups. The entire line excels at competitive gaming.

I still prefer the old Normal bias Lambda in terms of sound signature, though.

There's a new version? Did he happen to mention what has been changed/improved?

I meant new as in brand new. The only improvement I would make is to make the cable tangle-free.

Thanks NamelessPMG, after reading this thread, I decided to get rid of my Turtle Beach wireless, and I ordered an Astro Mixamp to really feel thru define sound positioning in my FPS.

I was planning to buy Q701's to mix with the Mixamp, but I have that set of Stax 202/212 siting in my basement doing nothing.

Before spending money for nothing, I was wondering if they could manage something close to the Q701.

Should received the Mixamp next week, will post my evaluation.

And in case people are wondering which lapel mic I use (cheap but sounds great), it's these:

Like I said, six star support, I'm a fan of their business model in working towards long-term customer relationships. Even if the cable wrap getting frayed is cosmetic, it's nice of them to cover shipping and a replacement mic. Are you sending them back the old one?

Grats! Which one did you decide on? The first time you hear truly great headphones... it's eye opening, huh?
post #21986 of 37339

I got the NAD Viso HP50s.

 

I dont think it was a good idea.  I have a family so I got a closed headphones.  Now im going.....well if these sound this good, maybe I should get an open set for the times i can use it............

Very nice choice. I've read nothing but high praise on those. I even considered them, myself, as my portable but decided to go back to the M500 on-ear, instead.

Im really liking them, wife complains that im not paying attention to her haha.

post #21989 of 37339
Hmmm... seems like you need an open headphone to alternate with? Try out the AKG K612 PRO and some K702 pads. Its a safe choice at under $200 ($165 at razordog using coupon K612PRO and $31 for the pads at AKG parts).

Don't want the wife getting too jealous... but the HP50 might wink.gif

Don't go with the 1000X... like I did. They are closed and they don't hold a candle to a good [200-300$] open back headphone...

YMMV, but the W1000X really excelled only in the midrange  [though I've heard better], the bass and treble extension is not that impressive and as with all closed headphones, the lack of air/soundstage expansion doesn't help anything...

Just my 2c obviously :] Waiting for the 560 and Jade2 possibly later. The Oppo planar seems to be lost somewhere in translation.
