oh wait, so, if you record a video with fraps, it will pick up the audio after it has been processed by the sound card (ie, already processed by dolby headphone)?

 

Is that what is happening in OP's video?

If I'm reading it rightly:

AD900 mod = AD700

AD1000 mod = AD700 - some treble, soundstage, and bass?

Yeah thats what i intended to do but changed my mind.

 

Next came the big revelation could i just put these drivers in some other headset shell for a fraction of the cost of the originals being the drivers where inexpensive campared to the original audio technica headsets complete and be it an easy mod??

 

Yes i did it

 

also besides for people that don't have the big noggins just small narrow shaped heads the superlux is a snuger fit without floating all over the place like my ad700 does on my head now...

Why do people continue to misinform others? The 558 modded does not = 598. Just because it worked that way for the 555/595, people assume its the same for the new series? I though this was discredited almost as soon as these came out. Sigh...

I think it makes them closer, but not quite the same (FWIR).  They do have different internal housings after all...

Thank you, Eric.

That makes them close to each other kind of like the K701 and Q701, and most of us here agree that while they sound similar, are NOT the same. Surely different enough for me to hate one, and love the other. It appears that the differences with the modded 558 and stock 598 are even bigger.



They should call the 558 mod, just that, a MOD. Not a "make it a 598 mod", which is misinformation...period.

These things about head-fi, quite frankly... irk me.

Actually, the modded 558 may appeal to most people anyways, as it has more bass and a warmer tone... IF it had the same soundstage and positioning as the 598, these may be a better alternative for those that want stellar gaming cans that don't need them to be as mid rich as the 598, which is a bit too mid rich for me. More bass, and less mids would be what I'd have liked from the 598, lol. Not sure about the treble though, as I found the 598's treble to be spot on.

Anyone been playing MW3 lately? I think they've fixed the sound. I distinctly remember upto a week or two ago, the sound was horrible to the extent I would hear footsteps in my left ear when the person was actually on my right. But now I'm catching people sneaking up on me again from quite a distance away (not the 2M radius I had before), like I used to on MW2, and can hear grenades and silenced weapons more clearly.

Spawns are still BS though (I literally spawned within knifing distance to someone in FFA).

I sold that game within a week and went back to Blops for awhile. I sure as hell hope Blops 2 picks up MW3's slack.

Yeah mw3 is bad but I paid for it and also purchased elite so I deciede to keep playing it i just modified my playing tactics.

Yup camping and sound whoreing works well when there is so much lag.
