Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 480

post #7186 of 37327

I searched a couple terms in the thread and I'm pretty sure nobody has even mentioned the Sony MDR-V900HD headphones. I have heard absolutely amazing things about these headphones from a couple people that actually own them, but never had a chance to test them out myself. Apparently there's a "Pro" version of these too, the Sony MDR-7509HD headphones too, but I don't know what the difference would actually be between the two.

 

Does ANYONE have any experience with either of these? I would really love some solid feedback on them as it's hard to find any real input from people. Especially if someone could compare them to some of the headphones in the first post of this thread.

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. 

 

 

Well, I've just stopped listening to music on my headphones lately (and in general), but when I do listen I'm tending to use my speakers. As far as the T1 goes, I really don't like closed headphones. And the HD800's are like $1,500 (maybe 11-$1200 used?). The T90's are only $650 new, and it sounds like they'd be way better for gaming. Plus they should weigh less and be more comfortable than the HE-500's.

 

I'm just curious about how they compare to something like the Q701 for all out gaming headphones. Maybe downsizing to a Q701/AD700 and focusing more on my speaker system is what I ultimately should do. Have a speaker system for the fun factor and something like a Q701 or AD700 (AD900?) for competitive sound whoring. confused.gif

which one of these two will give me crystal clear surround sound at gaming adn music ?.

 

 

You ask as if they they cost even close to the same amount.  The D7000 route will run you about $400 more then just buying the A50s.  I'm not recommending the A50s, I'm just saying they're in completely different price brackets.

AKG K550  and Audio Technica A900x are both supposed to have good soundstage.

 

I've seen the K550 described as a closed Q701.  FYI closed headphones that have big soundstages, usually don't have the best isolation.

ninja: FWIW I tried K550 with music a few times (in a store), and I think it really is an excellent headphone. Comfy, classy looks, good build quality, isolated well enough, and the sound felt quite clear, evenly presented and uncoloured. Note that I'm not good at spotting the "weird resonance" in closed headphones as some of my friends are, so perhaps it was there and I did not notice it.

 

It is highly regarded by Tyll, though: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/wonderfully-competent-akg-k550-sealed-headphone

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.)

Yeah, sorting by closed/open would be very helpful. I'm currently looking for a nice open headphone for the soundstage, but sometimes pictures can be deceiving especially to the untrained eye. I've got around 150 USD to spend and the AD700 seems like the way to go. Anyone have any other suggestions at that price range?

People will likely recommend a dedicated headphone with a separate microphone attached. If you must have an all-in-one solution that is the headset, there's a few recommendations on the first post. Besides that, the Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5 looks interesting. But it's only become recently available outside its manufacturer's store, so there are only a few reviews of it and none of them are in-depth. It would be nice if someone here reviewed it.

ZeeBAD: dude, it's really hard to follow your thoughts.

 

If you want the best (according to MLE's guide) it's probably the D7000 I think everyone here is trying to talk to you to check that you're making the right choice, but you don't really seem interested in the details, so...

Just buy the D7000 and a MixAmp and a modmic.

 

If you find out later that your soundcard can't do 5.1 or 7.1, buy a soundcard.

Ya, I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

 

Mad Catz owns Tritton.  Tritton also makes headsets with 50mm drivers.  I wonder where THIS headset's 50mm drivers came from??

 

Cyborg makes gaming mice and keyboards, and clearly they used their experience designing those to design this headset.  Should translate well.

 

Although, it IS using "the highest quality drivers available for use in commercial headsets".  Oh really?  What about the MMX300 and PC360.  They should have asteriked that to say *commercial headsets made by Tritton.

D7000 impulse buys FTW !

post #7197 of 37327

OK semi-serious question: where to buy D7k? HeadRoom and Amazon are out of stock.

 

ZeeBAD: sorry, the D7000 might be unavailable. I guess you should buy a HD800 and a Woo Audio amp to smoothen out the highs.

Also, for clarification, the A50 is not a 7.1 headset. It's an A40 with the mixamp built in. It's stereo. The mixamp is what gives the stereo headsets surround sound. Hopefully that clears a little confusion for you.

Not for PC gaming. The Mixamp is a console gaming device first and foremost. For PC gaming, a sound card offers more features and sound quality at less cost.

 

If you want the best from a competitive standpoint...I'd say Stax, but their hardware is pretty damn expensive for something you'd only use for gaming, even the cheaper Lambda setups.
