Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 29

post #421 of 37416
I've got my dt 990 pro headphones for three days now, and they sound great for gaming, movies and music. But my problem is that they just have too much pressure and after some time, it just gets really uncomfortable. Can i do sth about that? Are all headphones like that? Are shall send them back to amazon and get others instead?

Mad Lust, do you play with Dolby Headphone when playing FPS games with something like the AD700/K701/598? I haven't done a lot of comparing, but on quick analysis the sound stage seems to be just as good or better with it off with these headphones as the sound stage on them is already incredible. What's your thought on this?

Always play with Dolby Headphone enabled. Stereo is terrible for FPS gaming, I don't care what anyone says. Digital processing should always be on when playing a game where directional cues are everything.

I don't possibly see how enabling it could be any better at all. I can pinpoint exactly where people are, be it up, down, behind etc. I know for a fact that it isn't "terrible" on the AD700/900s.

I was but it would have took too long. I'll post an actual "unboxing" video tomorrow.

On stereo? You use headphones just on stereo for fps? I mean I'll be entirely honest, I used to use stereo headsets too back long ago. Then I was introduced to digital processing, such as CMSS3D and DH and I can say without any second thoughts that I would never ever go back. There are so many advantages to using digital processing that using headphones in stereo for gaming just seems utterly insane. I don't remember seeing if you had tried DH or not, but if you haven't I would definitely suggest using it. It's a night and day difference. This is, of course, my opinion. It is however shared with hundreds of thousands of gamers across the planet. Hell, maybe even millions.

This thread is starting to go in circles in regards to Dolby Headphone vs. stereo. Read back a few pages on the debate, but in the end this thread is a guide for those interested in the potential these headphones have with Dolby Headphone. If you disagree or have doubts, then look elsewhere.

I dunno if it went completely over your head, but even the topic titled states I game SPECIFICALLY with Dolby Headphone. DH is EVERYTHING to me. My first post has my thoughts on EVERY worthy headphone I have used with DH including the K701, AD700, and HD598 which are pretty much the top 3 spots for competitive gaming for me.

 

Umm, soundstage (the sense of space and distance between sounds) is one thing, but directionality (positional cues) is something else. I find that DH ON gives me the full 360 degree directionality I want, while stereo mode sounds one dimensional to me. The level of DEPTH between DH on and Stereo is by no means a comparison, as DH is SO much better than normal stereo. YMMV. To me, it was like opening my eyes (or ears) when I went from stereo to DH.

Made lust envy, could you answer my question from the top of the page, please?
post #432 of 37416

My HD650's work quite amazing for gaming. Anyone else have any opinion on them?

The Pros are known to clamp a bit more than Premiums. I had the DT770 Pros and I too found the clamp a bit too strong for my taste. You can stretch the headband outwards a little (it's metal, don't worry). That shouldn't be a reason to return it, just try stretching them out first. Perhaps over some books, or folded over pillows, or if you're adventurous enough, bend it with your hands yourself. I'd grab both cups and spread it outwards a little.

I'm with you Mad Lust. I notice a huge difference even with my TB DX11. Just for the heck of it, I turned off the DH on the DSS and I could no longer pinpoint my enemies with the same accuracy. I'm really looking forward to getting my HD598's that I just ordered from J&R for $171 shipped. It will be nice to hear a good headphone. This forum is a wonderful resource that I'm glad that I've found.

You called me a bastard for stretching my DT770/80s! They clamped my head way too tightly, lol.
