DH3 sounds like you're in a big room, with a lot of echo/revervb, and sounds more processed.
If you're using the headphone setting (IN GAME options) in black ops, you're not getting Dolby Headphone at all. Those types of options are either turned back to 2 channel audio optimized for headphones, or adds it's own software surround emulation which doesn't come close to Dolby Headphone, but if you think its better, sell your Mixamp and stick to that. That is, unless you were using that headphone mode WITH the Mixamp... in which then you were using two different surround processings at once, which SHOULD sound like crap. But hey... I'm not you.
Black Ops has it's best DH audio when you set it to Quiet + Theatre. That is the general consensus, and one I agree with.

Oh no **** eh! So turn on DH on my mix amp. Change the xbox to 5.1. Then black ops to quiet + theater? Is this correct?

When I hold my wireless landline handset (during a phone call) over the top of the AX720 volume control, there is a loud hum in the left ear only.  When I hold it under the volume control, loud hum moves to the right side.  That explains the left side only problem because the volume control was always facing up and the iPhone was next to it.

 

Thanks to everyone who helped me try to solve this issue.

That's why I never use wireless.

That's great; I still won't be able to help you because I don't understand the different surround sound codecs in the market. Go to Nameless's thread where the PC gaming audio enthusiasts can advise you.

Yes, that would be it.

Nameless'. Correct* :D

Sorry, but that is incorrect. I proofread business documents for a living and had to resolve this same conundrum before. Here's what I found:

Unless you find it on Purdue Owl it doesn't mean ****. All major college use Purdue as a benchmark for APA, MLA, and other formats.

  • add 's to the singular form of the word (even if it ends in -s):

    the owner's car 
    James's hat (James' hat is also acceptable. For plural, proper nouns that are possessive, use an apostrophe after the 's': "The Eggleses' presentation was good." The Eggleses are a husband and wife consultant team.)

  • add 's to the plural forms that do not end in -s:

    the children's game 
    the geese's honking

  • add ' to the end of plural nouns that end in -s:

    two cats' toys
    three friends' letters
    the countries' laws

  • add 's to the end of compound words:

    my brother-in-law's money

  • add 's to the last noun to show joint possession of an object:

    Todd and Anne's apartment

So both are acceptable in a sense. Though if you had said Nameless's

threads then that would have been incorrect.

Edit: Besides you quoted wiki and some English "forum" 

.com        You have now lost all credibility. I at least quoted a expert college's website.

WTF is going on here... lol.

I'm getting the itch to try out the newer HE400s with velours. Argh. Must resist.

I'm not going to lie, the D7000's pads are getting on my damn nerves during these hot months. Half tempted on getting the Pro 900s and HE400s...

Wow, that was aggressive. Hey maybe you're right and I'm wrong; I don't come from America and I don't know much about Purdue, or what major colleges outside of the States use Purdue OWL (it is "OWL", right? Since OWL seems to be an acronym for "Online Writing Lab").

 

Wiki isn't necessarily wrong if the sources it cites are credible. 

 

Anyway, I proof for a business setting, where people really don't know what's grammatically right or wrong, and I just try to check for acceptable rules to live by. Like I said, maybe you're correct; for my purposes, a rule of thumb like "apostrophe+s unless the word is a special, classic name" works out fine.

 

If you feel the need to discuss this further, let's do it by PM and avoid derailing the gaming audio discussion further.

You could maybe rejigger some Aude'ze vegan pad, or maybe try some Lawton angled pads (pretty steep price to try, I know), real leather is more porous than pretty much any artificial leather.  

 

 

I'm also getting some crazy ideas involving filling ear pads with that stuff from gel notebook coolers.

No sir! You were correct. It is acceptable in today's world just as saying "Nowadays" - which is a common slang word - has now been accepted in widespread use.

I was curious how the PRO 900 would sound for gaming on my xbox 360 console?? Pro 2900 seems like a serious contender for gaming, how would the closed back version compete??

I wouldn't buy the Pro 2900 though. Its severely overpriced. Sure, it sounds good, but it should cost in the $200 range.

how much does it cost? Is it better than the Q701?

$450. I still greatly prefer the Q701. The only thing the Pro 2900 does better is bass. Nothing else.

By its own merits, the Pro 2900 is solid... just not for the price.
