I'd be down for a lot of these as gaming headsets.

So I went and splurged on the Skullcandy Crusher.

it's about the closest thing I've heard that reminded me a lot of the 'feeling' of bass that the D7000 gave me. For $100, can't complain. I had $40 credit on Paypal, so no biggie.

Even has a detachable cable, so Boompro might work.

Lol wut?!?

Oh it's all good.

I like the idea of bass transducers working in parallel with headphone drivers. Transducers will give you the feeling of bass, without actually making the headphone drivers work for the same level of prominence in bass, letting them work more on everything else. Considering how sensitive I am to mid bass, getting transducers to do the work, without making the drivers sound overly prominent in that area sounds beneficial to me.

That graph shows how relatively balanced the Crusher is other than that staggering dip in the upper mid-treble, which Tyll explains tends to be where most of the harshness lies in most headphones.

Tyll gave it his recommendation, and his tastes tend to fall next to mine almost always. If he says it sounds good, even with the transducers off, I believe him.

I can't wait for these. I think I'll love them for movie watching and may keep me from buying a soundbar, though I'm still interested in some which have pretty high marks. I miss my old soundbar. So convenient.

Guys,

 

Lots of you are going the route of combing the the boom pro with your open back headphones (i see a lot of fidelio x1 here)

Would i sound crazy if I point out that the mic will pick the sound from the cans and create, i don't know, issues?

You overestimate the amount of noise open headphones put out. Certainly not even remotely close enough for the Boom Pro to pick up. Perhaps an Electrostatic or a Planarmagnetic playing at high volumes, but for most headphones, that's a non-issue whatsoever. Not forgetting to add that open headphones would be leaking sound away from the microphone anyways.

Thanks for the clarification.

Yeah, Head-fi in general over exaggerates how much open headphones leak if only to protect newbies from getting something they may regret if they need to keep volume to an absolute low level.

The majority open headphones would only be audible in another room if a door was open, and the person in the other room was very close.

This is the same with microphones. No microphone should pick up headphone audio under most circumstances, unless perhaps it was an overly sensitive omni-directional mic aiming the mic towards the headphones.

In my case it would be a non-issue. Pretty much anyone who has ever said "listen to this" and handed me headphones has had it much louder than I ever have them. I've got pretty sensitive hearing.

post #22194 of 37339

Yeah some people tend to listen to headphones waaaaay too loud... I don't blame them it's cool sometimes but you gotta mind your own hearing.

The saddest part is young people in trains listening loud on apple earbuds trying to crush the train's sound. 14,15, 18 years old. Their hearing is mostly already ruined.

I just read at the AntLion site that they start to accept bitcoin for their modmic.

http://www.modmic.com/blogs/news/11157241-major-4-0-update-stock-info-bitcoin-accepted-now-uservoice-tool-added

 

So instead of throwing a 40 bucks for a modmic, mining something like .08 of a bitcoin is both better and manageable, i guess.

I looked this thing up on Amazon and I got the impression that is has a built-in mic?
