Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 163

Here's 3 suggestions.  Denon sound the best and most comfy.  Ultrasone are an excellent deal if you can find them under $150 (Amazon has them right now), very fun headphone for your purposes.

 

Denon D2000

Ultrasone Pro 550

Creative Aurvana Live

So with the Senns being out due to open back what would you suggest?  Looking for closed back, long session comfort (excellent at the moment with my siberia v2), and decent music and game performance.  Really looking to hear the rumble and guns of the tanks while listening to a wide variety of music, and occasionally jumping over to Battlefield 3 and listening for that helicopter position overhead.

Problem is, I cant listen to my headphones on my Xbox360 without dolby digital. There is no other optical way to connect them to my TV.

 

I'm sure that might be the case for PC, but this isnt the case for me.

Ahh, that makes sense I didn't think of that being a PC gamer.

can't you disable DD from the output?  ps3 allows you to disable it, I always assumed the 360 offered similar functionality.

Edition 8 (with S-Logic) are very good closed headphones for music, movies and gaming (bf3 for example). The details and bass are amazing :P

Hi everyone! I have finally chosen the dt 770 80 Ohm- version. I just have to decide which dolby headphone amp to get. As i previously stated:

- I play on my xbox 360 without having the need for voice chat

-I watch a lot of blu-ray (or brrip) films on my macbook pro or my tv

Which amp would be the best one for me, considering that i'd like to spend no more than 100 dollars? (I can raise my budget, if needed)

Thanks again, Nicola

If you don't need voice chat, go with the Ear Force DSS. 

 

I think Macbook pro's have a mini toslink out in the headphone jack, not sure.

Yes, they do. You'll need a TOSlink-to-1/8" (female to male) adaptor though, but I can confirm that it works--used to connect my MacBook Pro to a Maverick D1 this way.

 

To give you an idea of what the adaptor looks like:

Sigh, really wanting the Senn 360.  I'm still really new to this hobby, how bad is sound leakage from open headphones?  Is there any video or sound test out there that demonstrates what the sound leakage would sound like from certain distances?  Trying to figure out what I can get away with with my wife sleeping one room away with open doors (room gets too hot to close up).

Door open???

Can you close the door most of the way.

Maybe put up a partition

Is there any distance between the rooms?  You likely don't have to worry about it;  leaking isn't that bad, unless you're talking about something truly open (I'm looking at you, grado)

The PC360s leak an exceptional amount.  Think AD700 leakage.

if she is in another room, i don't think leakage is that important. My wife complains about me talking, not playing when I'm in the PS3 with K702.

 

Just order using amazon, and if you don't like it, or leaks more that you want, return it.

Hi guys, I'm undecided on these models:

 

AD700 - HD598 - PC360

 

I'd use them mainly for gaming (competitive counter strike) and for some music.

 

Mad Lust Envy speak so good of all these models so I really don't know wich one I should pick.

What do you think ?

 

Thanks you so much!

HD-598, costs the most but will have the best sound.

The price has come up about $50 in the past few weeks.
