Yeah, I think I'm gonna switch priorities again...

Returning the DT990s for refund + getting my refund for the Audio-GD stuff + Income tax money = Almost paying off my Amazon balance (just a few hundred shy of paying it off).

For now, I'm gonna settle with the D7000 + maybe getting an E17, and that's it.

The Headzone can wait until much later, and open + velour = gonna have to wait.

Gotta be smart. I realize I can settle with the D7000 plus not that much power and enjoy the sound instead of the equipment for a good while.

I have a pair of K702 coming, and I will get to the bottom of the "K702 and Q701 are identical/different" debates.

 



waiting for this before i order anything else :)

Yeah I suppose it's probably best you don't go too wild for now.  

 

I did have an idea about the pleather deal.  You can buy Beyer leather pads separately, and I'm pretty sure they'll fit the Denons.  I've heard they'll both fit the HiFiMan orthos, so they should fit each other.  For now you could try the pads from your DT990 on the Denon's rings and see how that goes.

Well Lawton Audio is going to be selling real leather pads for the Denons soon. I'll go for those.

The DT990 pads are very open and would kill off the bass in the Denons. I distinctly remember swapping out the DT770 velours for the DT990 velours and vice versa. The outcome wasn't pretty. The DT770 lost all their bass and became 99% treble. The DT990 became nothing but a wall of farts. It was scary.

Pretty sure pad rolling would change the D7000 too much, other than well tested pads.

D7000 has pleather pads?!

 

I thought a flagshop headphone like that would have leather....

post #3606 of 37458

What's wrong with pleather?  Good pleather is more resilient than leather.  A good trait to have when always in contact with skin oils and sweat.

Yup, but don't get it twisted, they are VERY high quality. I wouldn't know they were pleather by touching/looking at them. They are very soft and comfy. They just get damn hot, and sticky though.

Not sure if you guys saw my post.

It's very difficult to describe how it sounds, but it isn't normal.. and I'm worried it will destroy whatever is putting out sound. Anyone experience this?

 

EDIT: It's almost like a metallic echoing sound.. if that makes sense. I have no idea what it is happening.

Your saying it only happens on MW3?  If so, that's very odd... I don't play MW3.  If have the sony PS3 wireless headset, you can rule out connection issues because you can't trouble shoot the wireless connection really.

The DSS 2 surround sound angles thing looks interesting...

3 looks like normal DH, while 6 may help discern rear sounds better. 1, 2, and 4 look like a TERRIBLE idea.

I'd be down to try the DSS2, but honestly, I'm trying to lower my debt. biggrin.gif
post #3612 of 37458

I wonder if it's a DSP on top of a DSP, like turtle beaches own DSP on top of DH.  Or if it's actually changing the dolby headphone DSP itself..

post #3613 of 37458

If they're able to just move the speakers around like that I can't help but wonder if the Dolby Headphone algorithm is technologically capable of true binaural.  I also don't get why they don't just have a setting that puts all the speakers at 72 degrees to one another, at that would place them on the corners of an equilateral pentagon.  What this would be useful for would be to match the game's field of view with the sounds.  Doesn't Dolby have recommended placement for speakers or is that actually just different HRTF profiles?

My reasoning for trying the beyer velour pads was that if they fit you could get leather pads from beyer for a lot less than the Lawton pads.  You mentioned in the J$ thread that you didn't want to change their sound (unless you changed your mind?) and I think the beyer leather pads are closer in thickness to the denon pads.  Basically just another option to consider.

I have the PC 360s with mixamp 5.8. I was only mentioning that it happened on my ps3 headset and the PC 360s. I have no idea where the sound comes from. Is it uncommon?

Unless it's some weird DSP artifact (not the case if it happens in stereo too), I don't know what it could be...You could look at the audio settings in the game...
