Went for these, which have a flat cable, rated highly on Joker's iem thread, and are supposedly comfy...

Ultimate Ears 500 - $45

I'd be just as happy with a $20 IEM that has a flat cable and sparkly treble... IEM use isn't that important for me, as I just need treble clarity for gaming, and I can EQ for music every other time. These should do the job. The Turbines were too smooth and bass oriented for me.

Yeah, I saw those too, but they didn't look too comfy. We'll see though.

SitRep Pro: Infinity Wards way to screw COD MW3 over! SitRep Pro makes everyone else's footsteps louder. (So whats so new/bad about that?)

Dead Silence Pro - Completely silent (No footstep noise at all)

 

So I still don't get it?

 

Well the Pro part of SitRep Pro cancels out people with Dead Silence. YEP! THAT'S RIGHT FOLKS! Even if you earn Dead Silence when you learn/earn at a later level, SitRep Pro is made to make that skill completely useless.

Dude... cant wait to go home and do this, I had no idea!!!!

 

I run all over the place in S&D with dead silince on thinking I'm a boss haha.

MW3 is terrible for demoing Dolby Headphone. You're better off demoing MW2 or Black Ops (with ninja pro). MW3's sound is too messy, and the positioning isn't there like before.

Interesting, I havent used dolby headphone with MW3 very much but I felt like I got pretty good positioning cues from my HT. But I also havent played MW2 or black ops in a long time and didnt have good surrounds or a good calibration when I was playing those games. Im even more excited now to take the D-7000's for a spin with one of them biggrin.gif

I find NinjaPro is too suddle and drowned out by other sounds to be effective more than 10 feet. (Which if someone is sprinting gives you about 1 second to react.)

Crusty Lusty is right on one thing. MW2 would be a great game to test out some DH. Do you know what is even better?... CRYTEK's CRY ENGINE 3!!! Sorry but this game gives me wet dreams.

 

 

Most amazing game to ever be made. (Click to show)

The story of 10,000 dollars.
 
Let me tell you a story.
 
Once there was 10,000 dollars walking along the street.
Here it came by an audio store and decided to take a peak.
Three hours later the money was gone, but what could have taken its place? 
A Woo Audio amp and a pair of Stax headphones, both never needing replaced.
 
The moral of the story is: A penny wisely spent, is a penny not spent at all!

The day I got my Stax Lambda system for $250 was probably the best AND the worst day in my life.

 

Best because it's probably the best deal I'll ever get on headphones, and it is THE headphone for me when it comes to sound presentation and comfort.

 

Worst because it may have actually been a gateway drug to Stax and electrostatics in general, tempting me to spend even more. Every time I see a reasonably affordable electrostatic piece of equipment, I get the urge to buy it if able, even though there are other things I want to get and could get with the money spent.

Stax for $250??

 

What have I been wasting my time on all this while.

Sigh, instead of updating the AX720 with better drivers, or design, they decide to update the stupid nonsense known as the Ax Pro.

When will companies learn that two great drivers with virtual surround tech will always beat multiple, mediocre drivers crammed into each cup? rolleyes.gif

If one thing can be said, is that Tritton knowns how to make some really ugly looking headphones.

The only way they will stop, if people research and stop buying them. Til then they will come out with dozens of new model claiming improvements in the way they place the drivers. While still using cheap mini drivers inside of the cup.

So I was doing some testing in how binaural and DH sound from different driver positions (like wearing the headphones with the headband under your chin, but still using the right driver on the right ear, etc. Positional cues are EXACTLY the same. Common sense, as the ear is getting the same exact sound. However, with true 5.1 headsets, you'd mess up the positional cues, due to the multiple drivers being placed strategically...I base that assumption with how the Ultrasone's holes are strategically positioned, and wearing them off center messes with the sound. That's another pro of just having two drivers/standard driver placement. You don't need exact head positioning to get the most out of the sound.

Just random testing before I went to bed, lol.

It seems increasingly like I was in the right place (that being Head-Fi B/S/T) in the right time to get a Lambda and an SRD-7/SB that affordably. Most other listings I've seen are in the $300-400 range.

 

It's easier to do if you don't mind pre-Lambda models like the SR-X/Mk3 and SR-5, which I have yet to try out.

As long as people who don't know any better (and there are a lot of them) keep getting suckered into it and giving these companies money...

The whole promise of a Stax at that price prompted me to spend the last few hours reading up on electrostatics and planar magnetics. Most productive afternoon in the office, ever.
