Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 377

post #5641 of 37444

I will be using a standard XBOX mic around my neck with the DT990 on my head. I'll make it so that the voice comes out of the speaker channel, but hopefully I will be getting a mixamp soon.

If I end up getting the DT990 Premiuum 600 ohm though would I need to add an amp along with the mixamp like an e6,e11, or e9?

I'm looking for a closed headphone for competitive fps games. Seeking Him:
- Best possible positioning.
- The good soundstage.
- Amplified by a creative titanium HD.
- Really close because my pc is at my side and he does a lot of noise, gets in the way.
- Rich in details (footsteps, carry guns, sounds like it has to be very clear.)
- Use for Call of Duty series and CS series.

I've been reading and saw the following options: I would like a deeper analysis of each one who has already tested, looking for the following high realized.

AKG K550, phone however said to be the new K701 closed. Attracted me to this very fact.

DT770 80, am afraid to get a dark sound, muffled by taking me serious detail and clarity.

akg k272, be equal praise for the akg k271, but nothing concrete, just be a neutral phone.

denon D2000, diversar opinions but nothing concrete.

The D2000 doesn't isolate well, and being so close to your PC will be a factor. The DT770 Pro 80 does isolate extremely well, but as you said, they're not the clearest headphones.

I honestly don't know what to recommend as I'm not a fan of closed headphones for gaming.

You might wanna try looking for some Premium DT770s, but they've been discontinued...

As for the pcluv, the DT990 600ohm will absolutely need something like the E9, if you're using a mic. The others won't be enough, and the E9 has no EQ function.

But how would the behavior of the D2000 for competitive play? No need absurdamentes closed headphones, I just want a greater concentration and isolation of the environment - noise PC - domestic noise.
the 80 DT770 are really too dark and muffled to the point of disappearing with the clarity and detail in games like call of duty, for his review by positioning them and something very cool.
What about akgs, as they are for competitive and akg k550 akg k272HD?

That's what I'm saying. The D2000 doesn't isolate outside noises like a closed headphone. It leaks in outside noise like a semi open headphone.

I don't have much experience with closed headphones that isolate well other than the M50, DT770 Pro 80, and HD280 Pro. None which are perfect for you.

Perhaps the Fischer FA-003/Brainwavz HM5 sounds ideal on paper. I'd look them up.

Mad, you recommended me the DT770 premium. Until they can, but in your analysis, you said the bass are very strong and his misguided way, this is true? as you also said it might have something wrong with them. Because premium, presumably they would have greater clarity, fast bass and sound smoother and less dark, right? I was confused about their review and indication for the details you look in the headphone.

The pair I got was completely different from how they are normally reviewed. I think I got a dud. The 32 ohm DT770 isn't known to be strong in bass, so that may be the one to go for if you could find them.

If you have the means you might consider the Beyer t70.

post #5649 of 37444

Maybe someone can tell me out picking a good headset with a mic,

I currently own the a40 system (the a40s and mixamp), but i am not satisfied with the headset..

they sound really nice and clear but i cant tell where sounds come from.

Everyone suggests the siberia v2, but i havent seen anyone post about it here yet.

I've seen some on sale so im thinking of getting a pair.

i game on consoles, but also have a suround sound computer.

What's your budget, illbleed? The only real competition as far as headsets go would be the PC360 and MMX300 and they are both worth a lot more than the Siberia V2. There are cheaper headsets, but they seriously won't compare to the A40s. Maybe the PC320? I haven't heard them, but they are supposedly a warmer sibling to the PC360.

Well it really depends if i sell my a40s,maybe around a good 200.

The thing about my a40 system is that i really enjoy the sound, but it has no 3d sound to it.

Its possible mine are faulty, because people have mixed reviews on them and a lot claim they are accurate and have amazing "pinpoint" sound.

I use to own a ax720 pair and i loved them, but they broke on me.

I get better results distinguishing how far sounds are and if theyre behind me or in front, left, or right with a pair of x11s with my mixamp.

Its really disappointing. Is this how theyre suppose to sound?

I would love to try a pair of pc360.

How can you compare the siberia v2s to the a40 headset? what is the difference.

I read your long list of headphones but nothing on siberia v2s lol.

I tried listening to virtual barbershop with just the a40 headset alone and it doesnt work with them.. just sounds like stereo.

With a regular uprock skullcandy pair of headphones i can totally tell the distance and such apart.

I dunno, those A40s sound pretty bad by your description. If you can't get any binaural effects with those, something must truly be wrong, as those recordings should work with every headphone.

I haven't heard the Siberia V2, just the V1. The V2 is supposedly kind of bassy and warm, which isn't something I'd like out of a headset.

If your budget is around $200, you might be able to score some PC360s for under that. Amazon currently has them for $209. I think Razord Dog had them on sale with a coup for $189 for a long while, which is where I got them from. Been a long time though.

Maybe you can describe the a40s to me as you remember them?

or if anyone else can help me figure this out.

Im hoping its just my pair, my girlfriend bought them for me for my birthday in march, and it bothers me that she spent so much on me and they dont do as advertised..

I will look into the pc360s.

But mostly want to figure out the a40s problems.

Some people do complain about the same thing.

Its possible some of the headsets just dont work how they are suppose to.

Do i have to burn them in?

i got them in march of this year.

thanks a lot for your help so far :D.

also if you can link another audio clip/video clip that i can test them on just to be sure.

Try that Team Fortress 2 video on the first page. Just remember, don't turn on any virtual surround when watching those videos, as they are meant to be watched from a standard stereo output.

I had the 1st gen A40s, which sounded very hollow, and everything sounded like there was no weight. The treble was very harsh, bass was light (which doesn't bother me for a headset), and everything sounded a bit too echoey.

Whats coincidental is that you loved the Ax720... which pretty much falls with the same opinions I had on both. I preferred the Ax720 over the A40s, and thought they did a better job simulating surround vs the A40s which didn't do absolutely anything for me. So perhaps you are hearing what i did, though I didn't try those virtual surround tests back then, though I did play CoD4 multiplayer a lot, which is a great for demoing.

I wasn't kidding when I said I was very underwhelmed by the A40s. It wasn't until I got the Ad700 that my whole thought of the Mixamp and gaming with headphones truly clicked for me.
