I should be getting my D7000 in a few hours. Ok... more like 10 if UPS sticks to the usual schedule of my deliveries. AGH, I can't wait! Ah, who am I kidding, I'll be asleep by then.


Here's some epic music for the those who love sexy lyrics and a banging bassline.

Massive Attack - Paradise Circus (Zeds Dead Remix) The SFW one.

The NSFW non-video... is umm... pornographic...and it's on youtube. biggrin.gif

To work properly the Realiser need to be used with a headphone that has excellent extension on both ends, low distortion, and very fast transient response. The headphone has to be as good or better than the speakers its trying to emulate in those areas or it won't work very well and people will bitch about how it sucks because they're using it with crappy studio monitor 'phones or something.  The Stax it comes with is the cheapest way to get all that.  The setup it comes with is only really limited in maximum volume.

 

If you call them up and tell them you have a better headphone they'll sell it to you without the Stax system.

Yeah, that's a shame. I don't think NaturalPoint was pushing the technology hard enough, or at least being successful enough to convince more developers to add support, given how most people thought Johnny Chung Lee's cool hack of turning the Wiimote into a TrackIR was a completely new idea.

 

I play my fair share of combat flight sims, so it's worth it to me (head-tracking beats the hell out of finagling with a hat switch to slew your view around, plus it frees up that hat switch for more important functions), but it could use greater support to justify that hefty price tag (not counting alternatives like Freetrack, FaceTrackNoIR, etc.). ArmA II does, which is nice, but it also highlights how badly the older Battlefield titles needed it while I'm in an aircraft; it feels like I've got my head in a neck brace the whole time, and turning on mouselook turns OFF all control over the aircraft, even if I'm not using the mouse for that.

Just got my "New In Open Box" D7000s from Electronics Expo. These are DEFINITELY to be considered new. The contents inside are definitely untouched, down to the 'tape' that covers the metal size adjustments. So anyone skeptical should feel 100% confident about getting their D7000s for a very cheap price through E-E's Amazon listing. I had bought a brand new D7000 last year from them, and it's in the same condition.

$585.... what a deal.

My babies are here!

I have a little bit of shock coming from the DT990s. I just put them on and damn... I miss the treble clarity of the DT990s, but I know it's just me having to get used to the signature change (that and the DT990's treble makes any headphone sound muffled in comparison, lol). The low end.... OMFG... most impressive bass ever, lol. It's just so pristine... just reminded why I love them so much.

Now that I have both, and can see how different they are, I know I do wanna keep both of them.

edit: Just tried both off the E9 and E7 alone. The E7 makes the treble a little sharper, and the bass looser. The E9 balances it out... it just sounds daaaamn good off the E9. Sure the 10 ohm output impedance is technically not ideal for the 25 ohm D7000, but in actual practice, let's see anyone complain about the combo. Just stellar. Note: The D7000 sounds almost identical on both... which is a testament as to how easy they are to drive. They sound good off ANYTHING.

Glad you got your D7000s back MLE.  My DT990/600s just came in as well! beerchug.gif

 

I'll have to test them tonight and see how they stack up against the Q701s....

YAY! I absolutely cannot wait to hear your impressions of them. I hope to the almighty that you like it. The Matrix M Stage should tame that treble a bit compared to the E9, so I don't see how I myself wouldn't love it even more than I do now.

Any first impressions?

You know I expect you to give me a full review. biggrin.gif

Didn't see the M-80's mentioned here.. how would you guys say the soundstage is for these headphones? Good enough for gaming? Comparable to the DT 770 pro?

Haha, well I plugged them into my sansa clip and there's not enough bass so I'm returning them frown.gif

 

No, seriously all I have ATM is my clip and they sound fine and very clear.  And the clip's the size of my thumb.  Can't wait to plug them into the "stage" later and juice them properly...

Hahaha, I did the same but with the Sansa Fuze. Safe to say, not the best impressions, lol.

God, new toy syndrome or not... the D7000s make me wanna sell everything and build a rig around just them. biggrin.gif

JK, JK. .

Not gonna lie though, I enjoy music more off the D7000 by quite a margin. It's to be expected, they do cost about 3x-5x more than the DT990s. Lol.

Fired up CoD: BLOPS for a few rounds with the D7000. These may have one of the best front/rear and overall positioning cues out of all the cans I've tried. Even with the amazing sub bass, I could easily pick out the minor details and where they were coming from. Even the DT990 has a harder time locating rear sounds. The D7000 just does it all. BLOPS doesn't even have good audio, yet I could clearly tell where my enemies were. I still wouldn't ue these for everything, but if they were my only cans, I would dominate with these, no problem.

D7000 and DX1000 is one of the most inviting headphone to listen to. Never too harsh, nor too soft that it muffles the details and the basssss.

Looks like Sony's starting to take interest in binaural sound... Wonder if this means PS3 titles will start to see this in games!

Though I can't see that off my phone, I think Sony should REALLY push Binaural sound for the Vita. CoD on the go with binaural audio? HELLS YEAH
post #3463 of 37339

Ha, Now I see you are all buying the expensive stuff.LOL Well, today I ordered some "like new" Sennheiser hd-555 for $75 , Since everyone seems to think once these are modded they are some of the best can's you can have for positioning cues. Not a bad price for some backup gaming headphones. I still have my Razer Barracuda for now. I think I'll wait and see how the asus xonar Phoebus review's once it's released. As for proper headphones and amp I'll think I'll wait just a bit longer and end up building my own amp. I have my eyes on some interesting stuff from a couple decades ago that may perhaps surpass the dt 990's for about the same price. New tech isn't always better tech.

I thought something was wrong with me because I had an easier time pinpointing enemies with my D2k's than the HD598's :P, not to mention that they are absolutely better than the Senn's for my music taste. Obviously D2's aren't D7's, but still haha. The 598's were shipped back ~3days later. I guess I'm officially a Denon fanboy.

 

Definitely could see myself upgrading to the D7's down the road.

Got my Modmic from Antlion today. Thing is SUPER sensitive. Has a ton of cord to it, maybe about ten feet to much for my own uses. I just wish it had a mute switch other then that it works as advertised. The quality on the PS3 is nice and smooth. On the Xbox it seems to crackle a bit. So that seems to be down to the system. My Modmic also came with two clasps which I was pretty happy about. About the only thing I am going to change is mod a sock on to it with an old KSC75 pad and an elastic band. Now I just have to wait for my HD598's to arrive and go through some testing.

 

All this talk about the Denon D7000 makes me wish it was available in Canada for a price even close to the American ones. At 999 CND I could buy an amp, a Q702, and throw a party for 10 of my closest buds. 500 bucks buys a lot of Canadian.
