I think that the Ultrasone Pro 900 are amazing, I can hear everyone. I just knife people around cause I hear every footstep of them in the map. that' not even in search and destroy on modern warfare it's on free for all, and that's without the Mixamp, I don't wanna know what's gonna happen when I get the Mixamp, Honestly.
You don't find the Pro 900 to bassy for FPS style games? I haven't tried them, but am just wondering. I don't love my HE-6 or LCD-2 when it comes to gaming. Sound is awesome, but the surround placement just does not work perfectly with DH. I was about to buy a pair of AD700 dedicated for gaming, but luckily had not yet. It is bad enough that I just bought a Victor/JVC SU-DH1 last month, since now I am already planning to sell it.
I am buying a Smyth Realiser for movies, and also gaming. I would say my decision was more based on movie watching, but I am very excited to see how well it works for video games. It should be epic. I get it in on Monday, and may be able to give some early impressions (not sure what my work schedule for next weeks is yet), but wont have it fully calibrated until sometime next month. I am thinking it may be the next greatest thing in gaming. I bought the SU-DH1 for the same reason as the Realiser, movies. It is a real disappointment that the Mixamp or DSS does not decode DTS. How much more could it really cost them for the licensing. Anyway, when I have everything set up I will let everyone know how it is.
