Unfortunately I just purchased three drivers from audio technica..
The price I paid for all three drivers Boggles my mind in comparison to the price of the entire headsets complete!!..
1- ad700 driver
And
2- ad900 drivers
Very inexpensive!!


If you were interested.  Just throwing it out there.

 

How much were the drivers?  I'm not sure what they'd be worth.

post #5027 of 37340
$9
And
$13

It seems their drivers are inexpensive compaired to others!!

Bob would be the parts guy in audio technica of America if you needed parts from them..

I'm sure also but I did not check the ATH-AD1000 drivers are probably not much more pricey if id have to guess..

Wow.  That's amazingly cheap.

 

I'll have see what new AD1000 drivers cost then.

post #5029 of 37340
Yeah I was shocked also.. I did not believe it!

I wonder how much also the 1000 drivers cost and also if they sell the entire frame without drivers how much that is?

I'm slow I should have asked about those drivers and the ear pads for that headset because they look comfy and I know they ate not selling for no $30.00 bucks like the dt 770 soft pads..

Oh well I can call again tomorrow and find out

I noticed the AD1000 isn't listed on AT's US site...  evil_smiley.gif

Can't wait for the european version.


Tales of Graces F uses basic stereo from the sound of it. Probably do to the original being a Wii title, and Wii only does Pro Logic II at the most. They didn't even use that for this game. Son, I am disappoint. frown.gif

Hey all.   First post for a 2-year lurker and semi-noob. 

 

First, @Mad Lust Envy (and others) – thanks for a great thread. I’ve only recently come across it and your guide has been incredibly helpful in choosing to upgrade from my AX Pros.   Really well written, and the time and thought you put into the post really shows.

 

As an aside, I purchased the D7000’s and a Yulong D100 II this weekend.   Kind of freaking out at the money I just spent, but I would say it’s mostly giddiness, as these are my first real mid-fi purchases.   I’m sure most of you have been there!  

 

For FPS (mostly COD) gaming, I also bought an Astro Mixamp and AntLion modmic setup a couple of hours later…Yes, my goal this weekend was clearly to stimulate the global economy.

 

Slowly getting to the point...I bought the D7000’s and D100 II as a desktop setup, and do/did not really plan on using the cans for gaming.   In my head, I planned on buying this gear and subsequently picking up either the 598’s or K702’s based on MLE’s recommendations.   Further, I do not own any quality open cans, so I thought that I could also use them as a music alternative to my (incoming) 7000’s and my other cans/IEM’s I own and use  (mainly FA-003’s, ety 4P’s and FS Atrios).  So basically to also help broaden my horizons on gear.
Plus, the thought of gluing the micmod to the side of shiny new mahogany is def. not appealing to me!   rolleyes.gif

 

1)  So that leads me to want to pick up the 702’s based on the OP recommendation for pure comp. FPS gaming.  My only concern is the mic/voice chat issue when driving them that MLE mentions.   Forgive me if this is a noobie question or was already discussed in this thread, but was hoping someone could expand on this issue in case I misread it.  Can I NOT use the mic at effective volumes for in-game chat while driving the 702’s with the MixAmp on the ps3? 

 

2)  Not relevant to this thread:  Might anyone reading this happen to have the K70x and D100 combo?  Would love to hear any input before I pull the trigger, even if it’s via PM.

 

Thanks in advance for any input, and sorry for the long post.   


-Will

Now I already know how volume =/= driving force, but for gaming with dolby headphone, you WON'T think about that or notice. Trust me, the Mixamp is enough for the K701 if again, you don't add voice chat. If you do, you WILL need to attach an amp to the Mixamp's headphone out, just to juice the K70x and voice chat audio.

Welcome!

I have definitely been there in terms of stimulating the economy where I haven't had anything to really stimulate it, lol. We are brave souls in terms of splurging on equipment we didn't test out ourselves. Blind purchases are scary and exciting the same time.

I'm pretty sure you will be blown away by the D7K and D100 (I was close to getting one myself but opted for the NFB5).

My personal preference in volume level leaves me desiring a lot more than what the Mixamp can provide when it is powering both the K70x and mic. Some say it doesn't need it, but I am definitely not in agreement with that. Hell, depending on what I'm playing, even the Mixamp may not have enough for the K70x alone (only a few games did this, where the audio was considerably quieter than what I consider normal).

Oh, I would highly recommend the Q701 over the K70x, as it has better balance for more genres of gaming and music. The K70x is a bit sterile for overall enjoyment.

Well I did call again AT to find out price on AD1000 drivers and as I thought almost as cheap as the others..

They had them in stock so I purchased a pair also along with ear pads..

I hope the ear pads are more comfortable than the pleathers that where on my HE-400!!

The pads on HE-400 gave me Headaches bad until I got gel pads..

I even used pads off my ad700. Which where nice with he400.. Can't wait until my HE-500 come in today.

At this rate I should just order some W3000ANV drivers...

post #5036 of 37340

Hah got my HE-500 today and it comes with a silver cable.. It pays to read and do research lol. 

 

I will do my own diy cable anyway because i have all the parts already..

 

why for you ask if you already have a silver cable?

 

So i can experience doing  my own Diy headphone cable and  also because I intended to make one for my he-400 when i had it..

What would you do with just the drivers??

 

What Would you put them in?? 

 

If you get them are you planning to use them just for gaming only or music also??

If really wanted to I could make something to put them in or put them in another AT frame  I was mostly joking about that though.

Just wondering, does anyone know if it is possible to use electrets or electrostatic headphones with a Mixamp? I know the electrostatics require a special amp to be placed in front of the Mixamp, not sure how Electrets would work. Would EITHER be possible with a Mixamp?

Just run the mixamp's output to the input of whatever amp the other headphones need.
