... $500 FREAKING dollars... DMN. Why so much. He-400 is LESS and I might as well buy a used He-500 for that price xD. Still I'm also tempted

$400-$430 if you shop around, wait around for the price to change up.

I find them superior to the HE-400 AND HD650, and it competed quite favorably vs the LCD2, IMHO. Not as immediately refined or intimate, but clearer sounding, and more spacious. Seriously, people want to make a direct connection to the older models, but the Annie is a serious, SERIOUS headphone capable of hitting well above the standard K702 tier..

Check out Razordog audio he has a coupon and puts the annies at 400. The HE-400 and Annies are just to different to compare IMO. One is mid centric and warm and the other is a DT990 on steroids with less soundstage.

From what we can all read/research a better comparison would be the HE500 and Annies.

You can try the code at the bottom of the site, but I was told by the owner that the discount was only for the first batch. You can still probably get a discount, but it probably won't be for as much.

You can try his ebay site and give him and try an offer that low. Worst he will say is no.

Just felt over this piece http://www.amazon.co.uk/GermanMaestro-GMP-Open-Back-Headphones/dp/B004I77ICO/ref=tag_dpp_lp_edpp_ttl_in 

while searching price on the DT 990 pro. Anyone tried this one for gaming?.

I just realized that the wireless transmitter for my Turtle Beach PX5 headset has a headphone jack on the front of it that apparently outputs Dolby Headphone. If I were to use that instead of the Mixamp, would something like the Antlion Modmic be able to connect directly to the Xbox 360 controller? I know the Modmic is 3.5mm so I would probably need a 3.5 > 2.5mm converter.

Yeah, I connect a mic directly to my controller all the time, no problem. You would essentially be using your base station like a DSS.

I play SP games, and rarely, if ever play MP games. From what I have read here and other sites, the HD 598 does not have quite the bass that other cans have.

 

Hey EdwardB4 are you running HDMI output out of your consoles to your  tv set ?? I'm not sure how eveyone else would do it but before i purchased my HP A717A crt monitor i use to go hdmi output from my xbox360 console into  my  samsung sync master p2370HD and had no problems doing 5.1 virtual surround into the mixamp from the optical out on the tv/monitor.. Same goes for my other samsung LN46A750 it also works last time i checked although it was long ago..

Double post...

Well, hopefully EdwardB4 checked if it really was getting a surround feed. The way I "do it" is just connect my Recon3D directly to my devices, since I only have 1 each PC & Xbox (that sit next to eachother). I suggested a receiver for the reasons I mentioned before, plus HDMI switches I'd seen cost a fair amount anyway. If his testing DOES reveal the Dolby signal to being forwarded to the Mixamp, yay, but I just suggested doing that & considering his whole system before upgrading his headphones again, especially since better components would benefit higher-tier headphones anyway.

Chris J pointed out his co-authored article on headphone impedance, which I thought was very handy (though the implications of my fading math skills alarm me): http://www.head-fi.org/a/headphone-impedance

Looks like the Fii0 E9K has RCA inputs for the AUX IN. Looks like I'll have to purchase a 3.5mm to RCA (red/white) cable separately if I want to hook up the Astro Mixamp to it?

 

Does anyone know if that cable comes with either the Fiio amp or the Mixamp? Doesn't look like it does.

post #11894 of 30428
I believe it's on the review page that only the mixamp comes with that cable

No, just get one off Amazon. I get the mediabridge one. Really high quality and more flexible than the Monoprice ones, but both work very well.
