Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 38

Honestly, other than a slight reverb I hardly notice any other differences in quality of sound when gaming using the Mixamp. It's really such a great piece of equipment and so fairly priced that you really can't say no it it.

 

If only Astro would provide a line-out that allowed clean external amplification...

So what was up with that Btrb4u something or whatever his name was. To be honest I knew he was going to get banned sooner or later. When he showed up he acted like the king of these forums, lol. Apparently his knowledge of the A40s is more than enough to claim he's more knowledgeable about gaming headphones than you or I or anyone else. Because let's be honest, those A40s are pretty incredible... NOT!

I saw that thread and was off to a good impression until the finale... the A40's.

 

It had to either of been a troll or someone who really... I don't know. I didn't see many responses before the thread "magically" disappeared.

Yeah that OP was like getting a massage from an exotic woman with promises of a happy ending. Then somewhere near the end, some butch tranny comes in and tells me she/he/it is gonna rock my world.

Stereo gives me listener fatigue/headache in games.  The soundstage sounds like its been flattened with a steam roller.  3d games just don't match well with a 2d soundfield.  They were meant to be matched with a 3d soundfield. 

 

I owned both AD700s and AD900s, and kept the AD700s.  AD900s don't have angled drivers while AD700's do.  AD700 comfort is better IMO (my ears touch the flat AD900 drivers, even after phat pad modding).  AD900s do have some advantages such as better bass, mids, and they look much better :p.  But I didn't find them as clear sounding, and the soundstage didn't have as much seperation and clarity as the AD700s.  They're still great, but I preferred the AD700s. 

 

Neither of them are that fun sounding for gaming.  It doesn't make sense to pay $100 more for the AD900s and get a phone that has weaker soundstage/positioning than AD700's yet doesn't sound much more fun either.  And if your not using the AD700s for the huge soundstage/price ratio, you might as well move away from Audio Technicas all together and get a more fun sounding headphone.

Haha, I totally read this incorrectly and was under the assumption the OP was secretly PMing you with suggestions of sexual attraction, after which sending pictures turned out to be a shemale. Don't ask.

A story I wouldn't find hard to believe, Dub. I been lied to online a few times before, lol. One time being a IRL ex who pretended to be someone else for half a year just to make my life hell.

Chicolom, that's pretty much what I have heard of the AD900. SLIGHTLY better SQ overall, worse gaming performance, more than double the price. That's why I can't take them seriously.

Then again, I own the D7000 which doesn't necessarily sound $200-300 better than the D5000, FWIR. Still now that I do own it, there's no way I'd step down, lol.

Once you start hitting $500 headphones, everything else is incrimental at best, I'm gonna assume.

She pretended to be someone else for half a year just to bust your balls online? How much time did she have on her hands? Thank god I'm settled when it comes to women. I've got my soulmate, and we're gonna get married when we graduate. I can't tell you how many ridiculous stories I could share involving women. None of them pretended to be someone else, but my last girlfriend (from long ago, thank god) used to call me with a blocked number just to get me to answer the phone to see who it was, most likely because I didn't answer the phone when she called 5 minutes prior. That was her only mistake, was calling from a blocked number 5 minutes after calling me 3-4 times when I wouldn't pick up. One time I had my roommate answer my phone when she called and say I was at my neighbor's apartment. She knew our only neighbors were all women, and then she cried and hinted at killing herself (just a way to get my attention, she wasn't serious.) Then she called me one day and told me she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which made me laugh. I literally lol'd on the phone with her, because I thought to myself, "out of all of the guys who say their ex was bipolar, this time it's for real." Then we had a long talk and I told her I couldn't focus on school and deal with her B.S. at the same time. She cried, ignored me for a week (best week of my life) and then texted me one day asking if I wanted to visit her and have make up sex. I was like, "apparently you didn't get the message. You can't have make up sex after I dump you over a week ago. Don't call me again please." And then she trolled my facebook for a good 15 minutes, after which I blocked her. Then I received a skype contact request claiming to be one of my buddies who made a new skype account. They were like "yo wanna cam for a minute?" And I was like, "sure dude." Cam goes on and guess who it is... So I told her to get a life and move on, and I'm not kidding, she told her sister to contact all of her redneck wannabe thug 23 year old friends so they could harass and threaten me. One of them actually waited outside my apartment for me one time and pulled up in back of my car so I couldn't back up. Little did he know I keep a bat in my back seat. So I stepped out with the bat, and he was already out of his truck. I'm not trying to brag by any means, but I'm a big guy. I'm 6'2" 200 lbs, and this guy was about 5'7" with boots on and maybe 140 lbs, with a shaved head and a japanese tattoo on his neck. He was like, "whoa man, no need for the bat." I was like, "you've got one minute to move your truck and drive away as quickly as you can. You better hope you get far too, because I'm watching where you drive, and I'm gonna try to find you. If I do, you won't have another chance to leave untouched." So I got in my car, and he literally peeled out of the front lot. I didn't follow him, and I had no intention of doing so. I just wanted him to think I was a psycho path, and most of the time it works. If you can keep a straight face and blink once every three seconds like you have some kind of a tick, while opening your eye lids very wide, you'll be able to scare anyone into thinking you could gut them and not think twice. Wow, well I got a bit sidetracked. To anyone who actually reads this entire post, I suppose I owe you an apology.

Wall of text. Break that sucker up, Dub!

I did read it though.

Lol, my last ex DID try to kill herself. I had to call the cops and everything.

BTW, I'm 6'2" 200lbs too. XD

Yeah, I've had waaaaay too many crazy exes and flings. I'm pretty much sure that all women are crazy now.

Now if he was using AD700's instead of those overpriced AD900's he would have heard you coming with that weapon swap.

Badump tschng. XD

My last ex had a problem with me spending more time thinking about headphones than her.

I definitely had a big part in making her crazy. =(
