Someone needs to grab this K612 from the Amazon warehouse for $149... like... for real, for real...
I listened to a CAL2 today at the airport. I was pretty impressed by the sound, especially given the price. A really good amount of bass without being overbearing or in-your-face about it, mids that were present alongside all that bass and highs that were decently detailed. The two major negative things I noticed: lots of outside sound leaking in and I couldn't get enough volume from my Nexus 4 (not sure if this is a problem with my phone or the cans).
It's no X1 or Q701, obviously, but if the CAL1 sounds the same as the CAL2, $75 is a steal.
Hey guys, long time lurker.
After reading over 300+ pages of this thread, I've finally decided to just ask the experts here specifically about my situation, since I can't find all the answers I'm looking for on my own after days of research. For reference, I am not an audiophile, but I am discerning about my sound.
-I have a PC and a PS4.
-I want good quality sound for both, preferably with one set of cans.
-I would like to be able to have the cans connected to both devices simultaneously so I won't have to constantly plug/unplug wires all the time (but I am not willing to sacrifice sound quality for this convenience if it causes a loss).
I've pretty much decided on the Fidelio X1's with the BoomPro mic and an Astro MixAmp 2013.
-What would be a good sound card to pair with the X1's for use on the PC?
-Should I also use the MixAmp on the PC (with the sound card), or is that overkill?
-Any other advice/comments about this setup?
Thanks guys. :)
Kill two birds with one stone. Get a Recon 3D USB, compatible with consoles and PC...
Nope, not gonna do it. Some classy gentleman sold his M500s and they're quite lovely.
Wierd... some classy guy bought my M500 and I used the funds to get a Momentum On-Ear! He loves them, also, and I'm happy with my purchase!
It's a small world after all...
