I prefer a 1/4th, unless you can find a 1/8th with a screw on type of 1/4th plug.

Whatever you think looks the nicest, though I'd wanna see the wire first...

I have no idea where those screw on connectors come from, but I do have both a black and nickle connector housing and both a nickle and gold plated connector, and they all fit with each other, any color preference?  And how long of a cable are you looking for?

Gold plated, umm 8-10 feet?

I'd have to see them, lol.

TBH, this isn't a priority or anything. I wouldn't get one atm.

Still, Nier has the best soundtrack...ever. Not even a debate. biggrin.gif


Ahh! I love Nier. That game's ost is definitely one of my favorites...You should also listen to Castlevania: Lords of Shadow if you haven't already. Epic soundtrack...gives me goosebumps whenever I hear it.

I'm a HUUUUGE Castlevania fan, so yeah. biggrin.gif

I spent a bit too much time on Harmony of Despair (and still do) for PS3.

Around 250 hours grinding the hell out of that game.

I current have the AD700 - running out of a E17 but I am looking now for something with a little bit more bass (or is that "some" bass). I was thinking that the K701 might be the ticket but thought I would check in here first. The other thought was looking at the PC360... but... they just look cheap and nasty ( which has nothing to do with the output of course)

 

Gaming I am on a PC and currently trapped in Skyrim and the battle fields of BF3. I am looking at grabbing the Mixamp also in the near future.

 

 

Regards,

K701 (and even better, the Q701) is a natural upgrade to the AD700. I say go for it.

I've also been playing tons of Skyrim and BF3 over the past few months. I'm partial to my Beyer 770s. I'm actually also looking at the E17 as something to pick up very soon. I honestly never find the bass that overwhelming unless I EQ it up, at which point the Beyers do start to try and lift off your head. Then again, I'm used to playing with my gigantic sub right next to my feet cranked up, and mine came fully burnt in, so YMMV.

MLE,

 

Thank you for the speedy and informed response. Quick question on the K & Q - from what I have seen out there the K is more expensive but older, correct?

 

 

Fantastic thread you have here!

Just wanted to let you know that it's all good now. The plate with "DT 880" engraved on it seems a better surface to stick the mic onto, both for grip and for positioning. w00t!

That's right. The Q is the newer model, and I would say superior in all aspects to the K701. Its a fuller, more enjoyable sound.

Not a big difference, but the change is beneficial overall.

I think why Headroom lists the K701 as more expensive is that they adhere to MSRP's which AKG never formally lowered, but everyone else did lower it, and now the Q701 came out at a more competitive price.

Like LordWormwood I also have the AD700. I bought it as well as the mixamp for an edge in FPS games on the xbox 360. I'm looking for a better AD700. My priority is playing FPS. I'm considering getting either the K701, K702, or Q701. Would the warmer sound of the Q701 result in reduced sound positioning/directional accuracy? Same question for the increased bass. Finally, is an additional amp needed for the AKGs if I keep the mixamp game/voice dial in the middle? I have pretty sensitive hearing so with the AD700 I have the volume set at 1/5.

Not sure how much volume you like, but with voice/game at 50%, I wouldn't be happy with the Mixamp alone for the AKGs. If you want the simplest upgrade to the AD700, I'd say the K701, as the Q701 isn't as analytical (though still exceptional at detail retrieval).
post #3975 of 37458

I'm getting a consensus elsewhere that the Woo Audio WA3 would be best for my DT990(600). Is there any reason I shouldn't go for this in terms of hooking up to the DSS and mainly gaming with it? I haven't seen it mentioned at all on this thread. I already have the E9/E7. Should I go for this or do you have any counter suggestions?
