Problem is, I'm not good with my hands and the like.

Both my Q's cables are green. frown.gif

BTW, I added Moon opamps for my NFB 5, which will give it a tubelike sound, which should be nice for the Qs.

Probably gonna get the M50's now
just wondering if they can be run efficiently from mobile/portable source ( SGS2/iPod Touch in my case ) without an amp ?

M50s are hella easy to drive. Not much to gain from amping.

Lame. My a40's leak way too badly for me to use them in public. Are the q701's easy to drive?

I may consider sampling them sometime this month.

I still cant decide which full size headphone im going for. So, as a stop gap, I bought the KSC75s on Mad Lust's recommendation.

 

I'm kind of suprised, but they really are good. Very nice in DH; accurate, spacious, seem to put out a fair amount of bass. In Dead Space the ambient sounds have gone from unnerving, to pretty damn disturbing... 

 

+1 for the KSC75 as budget gaming champion.

Not really.  And they leak still.  Not as bad as AD700 and PC360, but still noticeable.

 

So, not good for public listening =\

Well, I got my Ultrasone Pro 900s today and after some gaming on the Syndicate demo + a BF3 single player mission, got a feeling I'll be happy with these.

 

They are closed but don't clamp enough that I can barely hear my own voice when talking, important that I ain't shouting down the mic lol, plus they are very comfy.

 

The bass on these things is just unreal... I have no doubt in my mind that it will drown out sounds when gaming online etc but it sounds so good that I don't even care lol.

 

Can't go into much more detail as I'm not really good with all the 'terms' etc but I'm really happy, they have a good soundstage + great imaging/directionality (? :P) and I had no trouble pin pointing sounds.

 

Only issue is a slight hiss but I'm guessing that's probably always been there, just with open headphones it'd be harder to notice?

 

Anyway yeah... very happy. Can't wait to try out Dead Space 2 later.

Anybody try/ or has the Ultrasone pro2900. If so I am curious how they do for gaming.

post #3882 of 37462
I had the PRO 2900's before my HE-500's. They were pretty awesome for gaming. Very comfortable. What they had over the HE-500? Sound stage. HE-500 wins in base extension/impact and overall neutrality.
post #3883 of 37462

which did you prefer, I was also looking into the he 500.

post #3884 of 37462
Much prefer the HE-500. It has a much smoother frequency response and gives you sub bass that the PRO 2900's simply can't. The HE-500's aren't exactly bass monsters, but when a source demands bass it will give it to you. Example: the sound when you first start up Skyrim. It sounds awesome on the HE-500.

Get the HE-500 if you want a smoother FR and better extension. Get the PRO 2900 if you want a better soundstage. IMO, the HE-500's are better in every way except for soundstage size. The HE-500's are still positionally accurate, they just can't place sounds as far away as the 2900's could.
