I think CALs have "normal" leakage.

 

If you use them at home/work almost noone will listed to what you listen, unless they are very close to you. Man... my DT990 are open and don't leak that much.

 

If you are on a bus, well, unless you use some noise-cancelling stuff, you will do a sound war (your headphones vs outside noise).

 

I wouldn't worry about leakage with CALs IMHO.

By leakage you are also talking about them leaking in sound too  right?

I m not and heavy commuter i take 2 10 minute bus drives

I mostly will use them at bus stops , while walking to class , on school halls.

Might get some CAL's so let us know how they are. I do like AD700's, but how the fit is just awful for me..

The CAL won't replace the AD700 in terms of clarity and detail whoring, but they inject fun to the sound for cheap.

They will be absolutely perfect for you.

Who were the AD700's modelled on, because their head is bigger than 75% of people surely.. the metal at top is just too long but doesn't seem like it would be easier to cut it to make it shorter.

 

I don't want something "fun" or whatever, I really only care about hearing footsteps. Having my brain rattled isn't something appealing for me :P

60 euro for CAL! is a good price for Eurozone

Any headset I should consider which would rival AD700's positioning, sibera v2 maybe?

Usually gaming headsets from brands like siberia and plantronics don´t touch professional headphones for gaming
Ive heard a pair of siberias and they are horrible , stay clear from them
Maybe The senheiser pc 360 that have been mentioned here , altough i have no experience with them
i´ve seen glowing reviews everywhere

Just finally read this thread completely, and wow, kudos to you, nice thread.

 

I couldn't help but giggle at the Tritton AxPro as some of my friends imported them over and it costed them over 260$plus one or two of them headphones broke so they had to replace it, extra shipping to and fro :|

 

and all for nothing too :|

 

I'm laughing but i myself have imported my pair of head-phones and hopefully all of it works fine and i never need to replace it :|

Overall, JUST for gaming?

 

Look at the first post. At the end of the post, I rated which I'd prefer...

 

If you want a well balanced beast that can do it all, but isn't the BEST at everything, I'd say pick up the PC360 (if you need a mic). If you don't, the HD598. I say the PC360 because there's nothing missing. The HD598 is just slightly weaker in bass, so it's not as immersive when playing single player games. I have no problem using the PC360 for all sorts of gaming.

 

the K70x is beter than the HD598, but it needs an amp after the Mixamp. The HD598 doesn't. I'd honestly not use the K70x because of hassle to get it working to it's optimum.

The K70x is better than the HD598, but it needs an amp after the Mixamp. The HD598 doesn't (though it DOES need an amp for music, IMHO). I'd honestly not use the K70x because of hassle to get it working to it's optimum, and it's bass light. If you don't mind paying for the K70x as well as something like an E9 to help drive them WITH the Mixamp, they will do no wrong for hardcore gaming.

 

If you want my recommendations for you, I'd personally go with the PC360 (which I did). Simple, performs well with all forms of gaming, and lacks nothing.

The puck separates, revealing two 3.5mm jacks. One for the headphone, and one for the mic. Any headphone/headset can be used.


Are you serious? So I can just get the AX 720 decoder box as my mixamp and plug any headphones and mic into it? How does the AX 720 decoder box compare to the Astro Mixamp?

I might just get the AX 720 tonight from Best Buy since it's available here and later down the road upgrade to better headphones if the AX 720 decoder box is any good.

Yup. Its exactly like the Mixamp with a little hiss, but the hiss isn't an issue when you're actually playing. I'd have bought the AX720 over the wired mixamp if I knew about it before I purchased the Mixamp. Its more practical and easier to use too.

Go for it! You even get a free headset, lol.

Think I may have to check my AD700's are real, to be honest. Just tried some old earphones I have (JVC Gumy), and I heard more with them, and they cost be about £5 3+ years ago :/
