Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 479

Stax? LCD-6? Shure 1840? I bet the SRH-1840 would be like a K701 on steroids.

edit: I knew it...



I can't justify spending $700 on an analytical can. I LOVE their looks though.

ok so guys help here astro a50 with its built in mixamp 5.8 or denon d7000 with astro mix amp pro.

which one of these two will give me crystal clear sound in music and gaming with surround audio ?.

post #7173 of 37458

Mad: LCD-2 has no good soundstage for gaming. The HE-500 has more but I would take a T90 for gaming even when the T90 can't beat the HE-500 in music. Now this means, T1, HD800. Stax are way out of my mind, I'd rather save up for speakers. 

What's left? HD 800 and the Shures. I should try the Shures just for fun, I don't think they'll be better than the T90. Do you know about their potential? HD 800 is a bit too much for gaming alone. If I spent 1000€ they should be the one for all which I doubt. Who knows though. ;)

are you joking? :D

post #7174 of 37458

So the T90 is definitely better than the HE-500 as far as gaming is concerned?

Hey Y'all. In the market for some decent closed back headphones and how is the Fiio E7 DAC/amp? I was thinking the DT770 250 Ohm + E7 or my O2 Amp.

If you travel through the land in Skyrim (skyrim has well recorded samples) for instance you have a better sense of the space. You can test with the waterfalls as well, they sound fresher, more realistic as if you could put your hand into it. 

 

Generally it's the soundstage (3D), spaciousness, imaging, airyness that makes the T90 the better gaming headphone. For music though I prefer the HE-500.

Ninja, the E7 is a decent dac, but the amp is pretty weak, and definitely not for 250ohm.

I have the Q701 as well. I guess I don't need another amp yet but I was thinking something for my wife's ear buds but she probably won't need it either. Yeah I just really want some good gaming headphones with closed backs to match these open backs. Still can't decide on a SC though. mad.gif

I may sell my HE-500's and buy a pair of T90's. I hardly ever listen to music on headphones these days.

Personally, I would go for the D7000. The A50's won't be able to touch it in the bass department, and the build quality of the headphones should be miles apart. Besides, wood is classy.

a50s will give your crystal clear garbage. You compared crap headsets cans to high quality expensive cans. D7000 any day of the week.

 

Edit: D7000 are very high quality cans.

 

Any word on some decent closed back headphones? I think we should add a closed/open section so we all know which phones are which on a quick reference. (Without looking at pics but reading the upper list.)

I wouldn't do that, some day you will listen to music again. Even next week. 

 

Of course I can't decide for your wallet. You might as well get a good offer on T1 or HD800 if you're going all the way. However I don't regard twice the price as adequate but we all know how climbing to the top is.
