Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 27

Thread Starter 

I'm 1000% completely happy with the sound off my D7000. I don't wanna tweak ANYTHING about them. The bass is perfect, the mids are perfect, the treble is JUST the way I like them, sparkly. The LA7000 would make the bass more subdued, the mids more forward (I don't need them any more forward), and the treble smoother. 3 things I DON'T want or need. No thanks. That and I don't even like the modded woodies. The stock D7000 cups look the best, IMHO.

 

If I wanted an 'improvement', I'd rather just save up on another pair of headphones with a different sound, which I have absolutely no interest in other than mere curiosity in the Ultrasone Pro 900, LCD2, 325i, RS1i, and the high end Stax models. That's pretty much it.

 

I have found a headphone I'm honestly completely happy with otherwise, that is the D7000. Seriously, they really did cure my upgraditis. Everything else is a sidegrade to downgrade, as I would never spend more than what I paid for these ($600).

You are making me want a pair now... (even though that's been on my "list" for awhile)

Mad Lust Envy, did you ever get the chance to try out the Astro A40 again?  I am looking for a replacement for my old headset to go with my X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty and am considering either the A30/40 or the PC360.

post #396 of 37451
Consider the PC360 or MMX 300 before the A40.
post #397 of 37451

Don't even consider the A40 until they drop the price about $100. For how much they're charging it's an absolute gimmick. The PC360 has better directional cues and overall better sound quality. The reason the A40s are so expensive is because they're endorsed by MLG, which reminds us of what product... Beats... 

post #398 of 37451

The only thing that keep me from picking up a PC360 right now is the price.  I was hoping to get something for about $200 or less.  Any other ideas for a headset?  I really want something with a mic and if I can't find anything that looks right the PC360 will be what I end up going with.

 

PS I should also mention this is meant mostly for gaming with only casual music.

PC360's can be had for $179-189

post #400 of 37451

Used?  Because new I see somewhere around $300 and the cheapest used I've seen was somewhere around $240.  I can see the PC360 is better but worth that increase in price?  If I am able to get one for about the same then no problem.

post #401 of 37451

Sent a PM for price...

post #402 of 37451
Ebay had a few auctions for $179.99. I never seen more than one bid for them, so the winner got them for $179.99 :P

The guy just pulled all his listings yesterday. My guess because of this very reason :P

Other got in on $249.99 (Or Best Offer) deals and won it with an offer of $180.
post #403 of 37451

I sent Kazul a PM for the same guy's website where the PC360's are sold.  I don't know why he pulled the listings, maybe they've been selling like hot cakes.  You can get similar price through the site.

If you're talking about who I think you are, I just bought the PC 360 off him last week for $180. Authorized reseller to boot. Anyhow I checked his items on ebay tonight and although he has plenty of other Sennheiser models he's no longer listing the PC 360. Maybe he just ran out of stock?

post #405 of 37451

I checked out the site and they seem to still have them.  Though it almost seems to good to be true.  I'll let you know when mine shows up.
