Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 211

I personally thought line level was close to max volume anyway (I'm sure it's about 80% of the max volume, as that puts the E9's volume near 11, where I have it for the E7/E9 for the PC.)

I honestly haven't been using the Mixamp + E9 lately, outside of a few tests with the DT990 pro and DT990/600. My computer setup is in another room from my gaming setup, so it's a hassle to disconnect the E9 and take it to the room on a normal basis. The E9 will be permanently moved to the room once I get the C-2.2 amp for my main computer setup.

So I guess for those double amping, I recommend having the Mixamp master volume at around 80%.

I guess, I'll keep the wireless mixamp, as it's really quite a standout feature. The hiss is almost not audible with unamped k601s or k701s. It's problematic with very sensitive phones, as the hiss stays the same level below 12 o'clock. Using the mixamp at the 10 or 11 o'clock position with sensitive phones yields the worst results. The mixer has no evident influence on this. Seems logical, as the amp is probably at fault here. Maybe upgradeable?

Just received my ksc75 today :D

 

Tried it for a few hours. The left one doesn't fit properly, quite annoying to put on and hurts my ears. Sound's good so far though. Need to spend more time to work out whether it's better than the x41's, but initial impressions are it actually works for gaming!

It takes getting used to, but once you learn how to put it on properly, it slips right on and then doesn't feel like anything is there.

Guys, what about these? Someone told they are identical to DT770s, with a mic attached.

The QH-1339 headset was created jointly with beyerdynamic. The closed construction absorbs external sounds by approximately 18 decibels (dBA), which makes the immaculate reproduction of sound possible even in loud environments and turbulent LAN parties; you can now hear even the smallest details in the game that you have never been able to hear before.

I have no doubt those are probably just rebadged MMX300s. They color scheme looks pretty sweet though.

Glad you picked up another D7000, MLE. I got my Brainwavz HM5 in two days ago and am loving it. I have yet to game with it, but will likely get some time in this weekend. It sounds like the FA-011 would be perfect for gaming, as fellow head-fier LFF said in his review of the product. My FA-003 varient is said to be more neutral, but as it is closed it will suffer from soundstage issues. I'm tempted to get the FA-011's just to wear around the house when listening to music, but I just don't do enough of that to justify spending $120.

 

They ARE pretty, though:

Yeah, the FA-011 was one of those headphones I was close to getting, but the nightmarish impressions on just getting the FA-011s to show up at your home, let alone properly made me avoid them. It seems to be just an issue with the FA-011s and none of the other Fischers.

I wanted the FA-003/HM5, but I knew it was going to be a cheap replacement for what I really wanted, the D7000s. No more beating around the bush, lol.

I still do want to hear those, but I know they wouldn't be getting any real use here.

Why do you have the FA-003 in your sig, when it's the HM5? XD

Please give us your impression on them for gaming with the Mixamp. I have no doubt they'll pair up well.

Because i'm LAAAAZY and they're the same headphone. You're right, I do need to get around to changing it. What's funny is I have an actual FA-003 on the way. STUPID RUSSIA. Never, ever order anything from GD-audiobase. It is a complete nightmare dealing with them. Frogbeats is the way to go. I just hope their Fischer inventory expands soon.

Still waiting for a MMX 300 to show up in the for sale forums, going to be running that with the bundled usb soundcard for a bit, then switching over to a Xonar STX when I build my new computer in the next couple of months.  I just haven't seen a MMX on there in a long time.

 

I may have missed it in the thread somewhere, but does anyone have an opinion on the Shure 940 as far as gaming goes?  I have one coming in the mail at the moment, and I'll put my impressions as far as gaming goes here when I get it.  Mainly just planning on using it for music, but I figure I'll at least test it gaming wise.

 

Oh, and for those interested in the FA-011, I have one up for sale in the forums.  It didn't have quite the sound I was looking for so moving on to something else (think I got spoiled by hearing the Grado PS500 over the holidays).

I THINK I read that the Shure 940 has a smallish soundstage, which wouldn't lend itself well for DH gaming. Harkens back to what I thought of the M50s. I absolutely love the M50s, but the small soundstage ruined them for Mixamp gaming.

I might be wrong though. They might be stellar.

My guess.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Premium 32-Ohm.

Correct. the Beyerdynamic MMX300

419 357

Which is a DT770/32 with a mic. The QPad ones have the same exact specs, price, and everything in between. The only difference is the color scheme, and the ugly Qpad branding right on the cups. Branding aside, I prefer the looks on the Qpad version.

In any case, you could just get a DT770/32 and buy the antlion mod mic and save some cash.

Congratulations on your D7000 MLE!

 

I knew you will fall again into upgraditis :P

But not as far as you! biggrin.gif

I might eventually go for the HE400 as the upgrade to my DT990, but only if the bass is comparable. Once I have the Audio GD amp and dac stuff, I'm pretty much done and you wont see me here for a while, like last time. tongue.gif

But wait, they have pleather pads... ARGH. If people test them with Hifiman velours and they end up sounding the same, I may go that route.
