Can anyone sway me in any particular way concerning a choice between a headset and a pair of headphones + mic? I've been looking at getting the SLYR's, but those CAL's seemed particularly nice too. My only issue is that is if I got those, I'd be restricted to playing on the PC instead of both PC and my xbox, and I'd also have to get a mic for it. Although in all honesty, whatever mic I got would probably end up being better than the SLYR's mic. Kinda stuck on what to choose here.:confused:

Took some butchering and a warranty void on the BoomPro, but it works!

The V-Moda boom pro doesn't work with the Q701 or other AKG headphones with the mini XLR plug.... yet... Zombie_X is making an adapter that goes from mini XLR to 3.5mm for the boom pro. You'll have to find the thread he made and let him know if you want to test out the adapter.

As for the mics that do work, you'll have to go for the modmic (rev 4.0 is up for preorder!) or a clip on mic. Right now, I'm using the Neweer clip on mic and it's worked well so far for me. The cord could've been longer but it was cheap enough so I can't complain.

@Stillhart, don't forget to post impressions of the HP100 when you get it. I've been trying to tell people in this thread about their awesomeness and wide soundstage for a closed headphone. SoundMAGIC really get's overlooked since they don't have much of a full-size lineup, but the two I've tried are rather impressive!

 

Maybe once @Mad Lust Envy returns from his looong hiatus, he'd be willing to review both the HP100 and HP200 if we send them to him at the same time :beyersmile:.

Indeed the adapter loan program is open to the US and Canada. Let me know if you're interested. I've pretty much got the final design down.

The Zalman mic isn't that good.  It's not that sensitive.  Use the other mics he recommends instead.

 

Source:  I have one.

Agreed, the Zalman leaves a lot to be desired. I'd recommend one of the cheap clip-on mics. I have the DX version that MLE reviewed. It doesn't claim to be anything more than what it is and sounds pretty clear in chat. I've gamed with a couple guys here and they've said it was clear enough.

You got any extra DX mics, axel, or just one?

Just the one. They're cheap, just slow to ship from DX's Chinese distribution center.

 I know, lol... that's why I asked... *sigh*

 

Need one for the K612 when it returns.

post #23774 of 37400
Here are a couple K612 impressions:
 
 
K612
 
  • The K612 is more neutral than the K712, but not as neutral as the Q701 (going off memory). 
  • Signature probably isn't that different than the HD600.
  • When you put the K712 pads on the K612, it becomes warmer than the K712.  So the K612 drivers themselves are actually a little warmer sounding.
  • The K612 is really hungry for volume.
  • Midrange is a bit more forward on the K612 (compared to K712).
  • Compared to K712, it's not quite as detailed and resolving, and has a little more grain to it. 
  • Build quality feels a little cheaper than K712.
  • Soundstage is solid and plenty good for this price.  The K712s is a bit more expansive sounding and with more layering and cleaner separation.  One of the premiums you get for paying extra (along with the better resolution and greater body). 
 
 
The K612 is damn good for ~$165.  No real faults with it.  It's got a nice balanced signature and good detail and soundstage for the price. It's not as good as the K712, but ya.  The K712 is reallly lovely. 
 
K612s comfort is pretty good too.  The pads aren't quite deep as the K712 or K702/Q701, but you can swap those pads on it if you like.   I believe the K612 pads don't use as dense a foam as the K702, as they seem to compress a quicker.  I remember the K702 pads being firmer. 
 
Overall the K612 is definitely of the best options under 200.

Axel, did you ever get that Geek Pulse amp with the 3D effect? 

 

I'd be curious to compare it with the iCan to see which 3D effect is better...
