Hey guys, so I kinda pulled the trigger and got the Astro Mixamp pro (new, wired one). Hooked it to PS3 via optical and ran around some BF3 maps for a while. I am using Sennheiser HD25-II and I must say I am far from being impressed.
I was planning to get Q701 but now I have some second thoughts.. Can someone say, will the experience improve enough to justify a purchase of new headphones? I am doing this for the sake of increasing the immenseness of experience.. but if the difference will be just a bit clearer sound than it's not worth it. If I will really get a crazy soundstage an hear helicopters flying above my head, then definitely yes..
In other words if it will be like going from just $100 headphones to $200 headphones, then no. If there is more to it, then yeah, I will jump in...
Never used open headphones though.. IEMS and closed ones only.
