So am putting off buying the M50's considering the fact everyone thinks the Galaxy SII is a ****ty music player
So will probably get a new player then buy the headphones

 

Thanks for the recommendations though

With game/voice at 12 o'clock you max out the mixamp's master volume?!! confused.gif  Even with game voice at 70% I still only go to 65% on the master volume...

Pictures of my Pro 900s w/ the mod mic, one with the mic on and one with it off. It's a brilliant little device.

It's dependent on the game I play. If I have game at 100%, my master volume tends to be at around 70%. Once you set game/voice to 50%, volume takes a steep dive. I have to do more testing, but FWIR, I need more than the Mixamp gives.

Hmm...If I have game at 100% I'm only at 40% master volume.  I guess you just like to listen twice as loudly as I do tongue.gif

Probably. 70% at full GAME is pretty much my very limit. Most of the time, I'll run it a little less, maybe 50-60% which isn't loud but moderate for me.

Best gaming headset ever.

I wish the mod mic was a bit bulkier. I liked the huge mic on the PC360. It looked legit.

Narrowing it down a tad I am looking now at the Q701 or the DT 990 - they are falling in the same pricing range here in Australia. Is there any personal fav. out there regarding the two?

Depends on what you want. The Q701 is more balanced, and a general all rounder. The DT990 specializes in fun, with great bass and helluva lot of sparkle in the treble. The Beyer equivalent of the Q701 is the DT880.

If you want find yourself playing more single player games, the DT990 is it. If you're more competitive in games like FPS, the Q701 is it.

I personally prefer the DT990, but since I have the D7000 (which would do the same tasks but better), I have no need for it. The Q701 is my complimentary can for all other uses.

if I were to put them in an overall tier list (for all uses) ...

D7000
HE-4
DT990
DT880 = Q701 (I especially like that the Q701's treble isn't harsh, but still sparkly enough).

As my personal faves, above all the rest I've owned. Again, that's for GENERAL use, not just for gaming, hence why the K701, HD598, and PC360 aren't on there, which I don't like for anything outside of gaming competitively.

So the K701 for competitive gaming and the Q701 for all-around gaming, music? Is the Q701 warmer than the HD 595?

Are you saying that the K701 works fine with just the mixamp for you?

Yes, technically the K701 signature is better for competitive gaming.  Not enough to justify losing the fun of the Q's though IMO.  Q701 is warmer than my PC360, so it should be similar for the HD595.

 

...But if all you care about is competitive gaming I'm not sure either AKG is better then the HD5xx Sennheisers.  Not enough to justify the price difference anyways.

For me, yes.  The mixamp can drive them past what I consider ear-damaging levels, especially without chat mixed in.  With that said, I do double amp with my M-stage, but only because it boosts the soundstage.  I don't need the extra volume.
