Well, you can start pretty simply by looking at tube amps of varying price that many consider to be entry level. Schiit Vali, Schiit Valhalla, Bottlehead Crack, Little Dot amps, Project Starlight, Project Sunrise, the ever budget friendly Bravo amps, and many more.

Thanks :)

But MLE, you should just try BF4. You ahven't tried it so you don't even know if you'd hate it. It's not as fast and frantic as COD, but still plenty fast. It doesn't hurt to try the game at all. It seems like you have this blind hate for the BF series, but I haven't seen as to why you hate it. As much as I like Ghosts, and I do, it just doesn't hold a candle to BF4.


Battlefield 4 is not as good as it could have been..getting shot behind cover and hit from every angle by the gunship and m142 is a bit irritating..choppers were better in bf3..when do you flare/ecm now? not that impressed with bf4 on ps4 if I am being honest..more impressed by infamous second son, looking forward to watchdogs(pre-ordered) and the division! p.s I had some rubber banding on Golmud railway today!

I gotta admit FPS is my least favorite genre.
I never understood the hype... They are fun at times but start to feel mediocre when played regularly...
That's the way I see it at least.

The thing I found about FPS, and especially online FPS, is that when you get a good score. you feel REALLY satisfied, and it's fun too see what you have unlocked. And then, the next round you want to get that score AGAIN and BETTER.

 

But I gotta admit though, after going through 4 prestiges on COD, I lost interest in it... Because by then you know exactly how the whole game works, and it's not fun anymore.

 

At the moment I'm playing GTA 5, and I absolutely love that game.

I've seen some people post about the results they've had while using their gear from this thread... so I want to post a video showing what I can do with my Stax.

It will include those, and MORE. More is more, and more is good. Right?

There will be 5 options, basically showing every scenario. I am a sick sick young man with a problem/opportunity!

For me... I could only get a taste of the genre while growing up, cuz my mom wouldn't allow that "murder training in this house!" But I always had a blast playing Goldeneye at friends' houses, and zany things with Halo+warthogs+grenades. Eventually my dad got me an Xbox (YAY DAD!), and I've been having a lot of fun with the genre since. I still play lots of RPGs and action games, but FPS is also a social experience for me. And after playing CoD 4 for about 7 years, it's kinda like playing baseball or football - it's not about a new game mechanic, it's about competing against people and going for high scores. Same reason why I still play Starcraft II... I get such high value out of these games.

Good for you guys wink.gif
I get much more enjoyment off other genres, SP and MP.

I saw someone was interested in how the ath-a900x performs as a gaming headphone, so after a little over a week with it, I will give my impressions. Soundstage is nice and roomy, while providing nice positioning cues and detailed sound reproduction. Compared to my mmx-300, they are more comfortable, and have more prevalent mids. For gaming, I am still getting used to the audio technica. They are definitely better with music reproduction, but for gaming, I think i still prefer the sound of the mmx-300 due to them being able to separate the highs and lows better. The Audio technica have more of a "flat" response where as the mmx-300 have a "v" shaped response, with their pronounced highs and lows.

 

FPS Gaming wise I still like the SOUND of the mmx-300. Call me a "bass head" but  I love when the explosions have impact and depth. Audio technicas have great bass reproduction, but the seal isnt as good as my mmx-300 with the gel earpads.

But it is more enjoyable to wear the a900x due to their comfortable fit, while still having superb sound.

I will no longer be looking into the ath-ag1, because after hearing that they are based off the ath-a700x, I would not be looking forward to a "downgrade" in sound from my a900x.

 

This is all using the 2013 mixamp pro and e12 amp. 

Note : a900x is still in a break in period  as I have only about 25 hours of listening on them.

 

my question to everyone, "Is there a REALLY comfortable open or closed headphone that can reproduce bass like a tight sealed closed headphone?" Is that even possible?

does the bass of the akg 712 pro even come close to a headphone such as the mmx-300?

X1 pretty good at bass wink.gif
post #23305 of 37939

Quick question:

Im currently using a astro a40 audio system with the mix amp on my pc and would like to upgrade to the philips fidelio x1 or the beyerdynamic 990. I would like to use one of those headsets with the mix amp if it can power them properly (which i don't know if it can) but if it doesn't what should i get instead AMP/DAC wise?

How old are you (unless that is a question you'd rather not answer)?

Well this is just weird, the E12 is making my ears quite clogged up no matter the headphone or the source it's hooked up to, it's the same problem I had with the Magni and to a lesser degree the E11. Switching to the EF2A and my ears are clearing up as I listen.

Have you been on a marathon listening session? I am not nearly as experienced as some here, but fairly recently I had my headphones on for the best part of two days and it started playing havoc with my ears.

 

Even if one amp is seemingly not causing you issues, it may be the ebb and flow of your body making the difference rather than the amp.

 

Feel free to take this post with a pinch of salt as I've had a few to drink :)

Not really, I only listen to it on short bursts of about like 20 minutes at a time then I leave it alone for hours. I've noticed this in the past when I had both the EF2A and the Magni. I've always been able to listen to the EF2A without fatigue for basically all day, the longest session I had with the EF2A was a 14 hours straight gaming session and absolutely no fatigue and I tend to listen to it at higher volumes than I tend to listen to the Magni at, I was never able to listen to the Magni for more than 2-4 hours at a time. The Magni fatigued me after moderate use, it usually takes a few days for problems to occur. This also happened when the Magni was my only amp for many months, ear clogging was a constant problem, so it's not something that has to do with me being used to an amp or anything.

 

I always had problems with solid state amps and devices fatiguing my ears, I was thinking it was just certain amps, but the more I listen to the more it seems my ears just don't agree with something about them, heck I have problems with portable devices, headphone outs in computers, etc. The only fix I have come across so far is hybrid tube and pure tube amps.

It's interesting that some amps seem to cause problems more than others. Is this a case of solid state vs tube? If that were the case it would be even more interesting and even potentially worthy of its own thread.

 

I am a guitar player and know that many people find tube guitar amps more sonically pleasing. The idea that tube amps may be less irritating (from a medical perspective) is intriguing.
