Watched 3 different videos and they were all the same...just the headset in the box.


very weird...maybe mad lust envy or anyone else that bought the 360's brand new can confirm this?

post #347 of 37296

Its true.  The ONLY thing inside the Sennheiser box is the headphones in a plastic bag.

post #348 of 37296

Yep, all I got the same thing.  Just a box with no documents.  I contacted the seller and asked what I do about a warranty since there is no info in the box.  He said just head on over to http://www.sennheiserusa.com/serviceandsupport_register and register your headset.  Then, if it needs any servicing, the serial number will match to the numbers for his store, and the ebay invoice will serve as your receipt.  The headset is awesome, thanks for the review MLE.

So what is better to go HD 598 for 160 € or PC 360 for 100€ (idk why PC 360 is so cheap now)

If you want a dedicated headset, the PC360 is better as it has a mic attached and volume control on the right cup. Very versatile. The HD598 is make no mistake, noticeably better than the PC360 is terms of overall SQ, but it is a headPHONE, not a headset. I gladly gave up some SQ for the versatility of the PC360. I honestly don't need my gaming SQ to be any clearer than the PC360. No to mention that the PC360 is easier to drive than the HD598 from my experience.

 

Soundstage and positional accuracy is pretty much the same.

So i would need amp for HD 598 or Creative X-fi titanium will be good for it ? and about mic i don't need is so much i just care of sound quality and if is worth to pay 60€ more for HD 598

Is there any mic mod for HD 598. From HD 555 and 558 reviews i saw they removing foam inside ear-cup and that improve sountage

 As i can see from this AD700 mic mod http://www.halo3forum.com/pc-hardware-tech-support/275245-fragtalitys-audio-technica-ad700-boom-mic-mod.html mic is now blocking some holes on outside side of ear-cup that make sound worst ?

Ouch I wanted to try out a pair of beyerdynamic's but they all seem to have gone up in price about $100 from where they were a few weeks ago.

Just a heads-up...Electronics-Expo has the HD 598's back in stock and when you apply coupon code "DEALZON" you get an outstanding $84 off. Total price $165.11 (before shipping). By far the best deal for these cans that I can find right now.

i'm thinking about getting the turtle beach dss and the dt 990 pro 250 ohm headphones. Is the dss inferior to the mixamp (the mixamp costs 50 bucks more)? You tested the dt 990 premium cans, is there much of a difference to ones im planning to buy ( apart from costing twice as much)? I dont play competitive, i wanna use the headphones for single player console games, movies and tv series. So if i do not voice chat, i wont need an extra amp for gaming, watching tv or listening to music, would i? Greatings from austria and thx for your incredible guide!

The DSS is on par with the Mixamp and AX720, but doesn't allow for voice chat unless you have a Turtle Beach headset (which you say you don't mind), and has less input options.

 

The only TRUE options IMHO, is the Mixamp or AX720 amp.

 

Pro model of Beyers clamp more, leading to smaller soundstage, more bass and harsher highs, according to Zombie-X. I had the DT770 Pro and it's definitely more clampy, though I felt they were more secure on the head, and the soundstage was still good.

 

As for needing an extra amp... not for movies or gaming, but these gaming amps aren't made for music. They don't sound good for that purpose, IMHO.

Mad Lust Envy what SQ improvement mean  when u said PC 360 is better coz of SQ improvement  over HD 598  what SQ mean

So as u said PC 360 if i wana mic and adjustable sound volume in headset and HD 598 is better in sound quality

post #357 of 37296

SQ = Sound Quality. o_O

 

The HD598 has better detail in the mids and highs. No contest there, really. They are definitely more mid and treble/high oriented, while the PC360 sounds more balanced as a whole. The bass in the PC360 is probably a little stronger than the HD598's bass, adding more to the immersion.

 

Like I said, for practically all forms of gaming, I don't think you can go wrong with the PC360 as your one for all solution. I even like it for single player gaming, probably moreso than the HD598 due to more bass for immersion, but I still feel the HD598 is on a slightly higher level, sound quality-wise.

 

I'd like to add that I edited the PC360 and gave it a 7.0 in fun factor (from the preview 6.5). They do have more bass than I credited them for initially. Not bloated, but more enjoyable, as opposed to the HD598 being a little on the lean to neutral side when it comes to bass.

But for my purpose (gaming without chatting and watching tv via my ps3) the dss is equal to the mixamp?

And would you recommend the creative aurvana live? Its half the price of the pro beyers.

If not, would you take the 990 or the 770?

Thx for helping me out.

If you ain't using voice chat, nothing wrong with getting the DSS. Just get it.

 

The Creative Aurvana Live makes a better fun can than competitive can. For the price, it's great, but won't compare to the Beyers, though I felt they were slightly better as a whole than the DT770 Pro 80 (which had too much bass for competitive use).

 

I'd probably go with the 990 Pros if I had a choice. That's assuming they sound somewhat close to how the Premiums sound.
