Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1577

Thread Starter 
Don't expect a review for anything in awhile. Call it a hiatus. I may eventually finish my Ultrasone HFI-15G, but not really in the mood to write or review any headphone for a good while.

I dunno, I look pretty bad-ass in red. See how it accents my black? Damn I'm svelte.

Ninja!

 

I'm off to sunny Amsterdam tomorrow :) Digeridoos, palm trees, pizza, sumo wrestling and bagpipes. Yep Amsterdam, the windy city that never sleeps. Can hardly wait!

 

Evshrug, I see you managed to evade the munchkins I dispatched.. The old escape by riding a rainbow to the land of the gods trick eh? Well played sir, well played. Their methods can be quite brutal.

Hey Chico, how about approaching Schiit for virtual surround device? 

 

Hmm.  Perhaps....

 

I imagine Schiit would just want a device that output optical or line out, that way they could sell you their optical DACs and amplifiers to pair with it.  Still, that would be fine with me.

Hmm, console > Schiit DSP > OptiModi > Magni/Vali > headphone seems a bit unwieldy. I'm sure it can easily be done, and I'm not one to take the simple option over the one with better sound, but I don't know. I thought the idea of the new device was to take on the Mixamp and its rivals.

Ok so If its between AKG Q 701 and the AKG k612 which would you choose?  I am trying to pick my new gaming headphones.   Tried to search through this thread but essentially gave up as AKG k612 comes up everywhere since its in the title.  Adding ATH-700x and 900x for good measure

 

SO... Q701 vs K612 vs ATH-ad700x vs ATH-ad900x

 

I will not be using an amp, I will primarily be plugging these into my computer for gaming, I have a moderately larger head.  I used to have ATH A500s which i loved which is why I am including the ATHs in here.  

 

Thoughts?

I'm sure you'll be perfectly happy with any of those.  They're all great for gaming.  What sound card are you using?  If you're not amping, you may want to avoid the AKG's.

If your computer means an onboard integrated sound card, then none of these.

The X1 or MA900 would be a much better choice in that case.

Any headphone (almost) over $100 benefits from an amp to sound more pleasing and dynamic, but most sound better than average headphones without recommended amping supply. Think videogames... A new AAA videogame might be awesome, but low settings aren't as awesome as maxing out the quality.

That said, the Q701 and K612 are very close. Your sound preference ultimately should be the final factor, but in the K612's favor it has a more comfortable headband and has better dampening against noisy computer parts.

The K612 are a lot less..what do they sound like with the astro mixamp, do you think it has enough power for them?
