I can't believe how addicted to this thread I am!  As someone completely satisfied with my Denon D1100, but looking to get open cans in the near future, I'm researching the crap out of headphones.  I LOVE the sound Denon produces so I'm heavily considering the Denon D7000's because a lot of reviews say they do allow for a good mount of outside noise to come in and I need that for when I need to hear my wife calling me in another room.  Only issue I have is they don't look to have a 3.5mm input jack and I have a powerful enough decoder box where I don't want to get another amp just to be able to run these.

 

Other phones I'm considering are PC 360 and DT990's but I would really like to stick with Denon as I am just a huge fan of their sound as a whole.  I may wind up getting the PC 360's just for gaming with friends, but I really want the Denon D7000's!

If you talking about the little foam pads under the Q701 badge and/or the foam right behind the ear pads, those don't play much of a factor....

 

Have you seen different photos of the internals?

post #4129 of 37339

I think that was it but I don't remember the details.  It wasn't really something I was following too closely.  Have you tested those foam discs or something?

 

Maybe I could try something similar with my K601...

The little sticker on the inside says 03893

im also trying to get a few new headphones for me and friends.

creative live - budget pc headphones for dolby/cssm

denon 1100 - $100 musical headphone with decent bass for rocksmith

ultrasone 750 - portable easy to drive headphone for music and ps vita and to see what the s logic fuss is about. Hopefully theses are not massively bassy just something with a little kick.

Ya, I tested it.  Didn't make much difference.

Hmm...

 

Maybe its something different then.  I see some changes in Tyll's graphs that could indicate driver tweaks.

What will an amp actually do for the sound of the q701?
I am trying to figure these things out. I know they are not bassy headphones but there doesnt seem to be much of any. I am thinking its because its my first real open headphone. So maybe I am just used to the sound pushed into my head rather than being around it.

What source are you using? My apparently easy to drive Samson's have zero bass plugged into the back of my motherboard and cell phone, but they sounded great when using my receiver and pretty good with my iPod. Try a few different ones if you can.

I am hoping that is what it is. I definetly dont have a volume problem. When I hook it into my laptop I only have it set to 3-4 out of 25. All I have is the laptop, cell, a $100 htib rca receiver, and a old sony cd player. When I put the bass boost on in the cd player it fills the headphones really well.

I have a objective2 amp built for me. But had the guy hold onto it so I could have the dac built into it when it is released.

To all my gaming buddies here, please vote for a gaming sub-forum here on this site! We all would have personal interests for this, where we would be ableto actually discuss our fave games at length. It wouldbe a huge win for us gamers, and would keep me here on Head-fi even more.

I will be adding this petition to my sig as well as the first post when I get home. Thanks in advanced.

Uhh, the back of motherboards tend to be for actual speakers, not headphones. I'm seriously surprised people are doing this.

Also tried the Binary Domain demo. Game looks so ace.


I see what you mean about the mass effect demo.  Those reapers made some juicy bass noises when they moved and shot stuff.

 

That Binary Domain demo was interesting.  Very Japanese and surprisingly polished.  The menus remind me so much armored core games.  The robots looked a little lame, like iRobots instead of terminators.  And WTF with the french robot and and Gorilla robot at the end?  Unnecessary... tongue.gif

That's what I love about Sega, they tend to publish some interesting games that break from the norm. I actually love that Binary Domain has robots more like I Robot. Makes it more convincing that these robots were once our own creations that we could relate with. Terminator type robots are just that, killers first.

I added the petition to the thread and sig. I hope all of you are on board and VOTE!

I agree with you about sega I love the look of valkyria chronicles. Maybe four will come out on the vita.

Oh yeah. My tactile transducer was rocking my chair to hell. The demo had some serious bass in it.
