Those look strangely familiar... wink.gif

 

The modmic is pricier, but worth it IMO.  Clip-ons can suck it.

Ya the clip on doesn't work well for me.  I have the PC360 but I'm thinking on selling it.

Take that back! Right now! mad.gif

My DX clip-on that cost me less than $3 works perfectly. tongue.gif

Though if you were more specific like say...

The Zalman clip-on can suck it... then yes, I agree. biggrin.gif

Its sad that I spent over $30 for the Zalman and was appalled at how horrible it was.

IF my DX clip on messes up, I'll get the modmic myself.

Hrm, I see, well I went and got the LVA 7330 as recommended by the guide and plan on attaching it to the Q701 one way or another heh.

A legitimate alternative, though you have to sand off the headband, and find a way to attach it to your headphones. The double sided velcro didn't work well for me when I had the LVA7330. It was too heavy for the velcro.

How bout double sided tape?

I sold the CAL with the LVA7330, didn't try tape.

$30?!  WTH, I think I spent $8 on it...

post #5277 of 37456

If anyone is interested in a PC360 pm me.  I did the hd555 grill mod on them.

They were a bit more expensive before, sadly.

As many others have stated, fantastic thread MLE. Thanks for all the help you give gamers out there.

 

I'm just getting into this expensive headphone business so bear with me.

 

I have some questions about what headphone would work best to compliment my AD700s. I currently use the AD700s connected to an Astro mixamp for competitive gaming and it works great, but using them for casual fun gaming, movie watching, music listening, etc. isn't the greatest experience. I'd like to pick up a fun headphone to fix this. :)

 

I'm considering the DT770 pro 80s and the DT990 pros so far as a result of my $200 budget. I don't plan on getting an amp, I just plan on using the mixamp.

 

I like the clarity I've heard in the AD700; does the DT770 pro 80's powerful bass take clarity away from its sound a great deal? Or am I misunderstanding how its heavy bass affects the headphone? Loss of clarity might be a turn-off for me.

 

How does the DT990 pro compare to the DT770 pro 80 for gaming purposes? I've heard that the DT990 pro is like the DT770 pro 80 but with slightly less bass and better clarity of sound. They are relatively close in price so I'm wondering if the few extra bucks for the DT990 pro is worth it.

 

Also, would using the DT990 pro with a mixamp alone take away any advantage it has over the DT770 pro 80 in sound quality? I don't really understand how that impedance stuff can affect sound quality.

 

Thank you all for your help! :D

The DT990 Pros smoke the DT770 Pro 80 in every way other than isolation (obviously).

If you're not using a mic with them, the Mixamp will be fine with the DT990 Pros.

And yes, the DT770 Pro 80s tend to sound muffled at times because of the bass. The DT990s don't. Unless you need the fantastic noise isolation of the DT770s... there's no reason not to go with the 990 Pros.
