Ahah, I hadn't thought about the electric bill. Well, if it works, then I'll deal with it! :P

It actually has a lot of RCA, although I have no idea if those are "true" line in...guess I'll just have to get a 3.5 to rca cable and try myself.

Whats up peeps. Need some help here.

 

I am a 100% PC gamer.

 

Im looking for accuracy and detail whoreing. I have no one around me and noise from open cans wouldnt matter.

 

I currently have a ROG Phobeus sound card (600ohm) and AD700.

 

I love my ad700's but the are starting to seem dullish.

 

Im looking at the AD900's but would like opinions. I could care less about bass.

Dont care about how they fit either.

 

Im looking for maximum detail whoreing and accuracy.

 

 

Would like to keep price under 350$

 

Thanks!! 

 

Oh, i also mostly play FPS's and MMO's

^ Sounds like the AKG K701/K702/Q701 line is what you're looking for.

AD900s won't increase "detail whoring" and accuracy over AD700s.  In fact, they may even decrease it.

 

The AD700s are pretty much it when it comes that, especially given their price.

 

You can get more fun and engaging sounding heapdhones (more bass and body to the sound) by spending more, but you can't really increase the detail and accuracy over the AD700 by spending more.

 

 

Does that soundcard come with surround DSP's like Dolby Headphone?

I want to get ack to adding to mine, though I'm kinda bummed because I'd hoped to write about external DACs from personal experience, but I never was able to successfully troubleshoot the ODAC connection before sending it away.

 

A thread is probably a better idea.  I was just gonna make a post here, but I suppose it could get buried quickly that way, huh?  Thanks for the tip!

If strict pc gamer it would seem you could EQ with AD700 and dail in the detail whoring. Not sure you could do much better. Also ask on the Nameless pc guide you may have better luck over there.

On that note I really enjoy my 12ua7 RCA Clear Top [in my Indeed G3] for my dt 990s

 

On that note I got teh Mad Dogs in today... they nice. I use em with my Rca CLear top, since they are a little to rich for me. The Tube gives a little more sound stage to the cans [which they need] and a little better control on bass and seperation.

 

Still I'm happy with the mad Dogs :D

 

in addition I do a alot of pc gaming but... does an mmo really need direct sound... if it's 1st person than yea but most of em are 3rd right?

More for immersion and not an actual need for positional cues, I'm sure.

I've made some lengthy mini-guide posts in this thread, I rescued some of them and put them into my thread or in the product reviews section, but I know there's some that I've forgotten. If you make a good thread with an attractive title, and put the link in your signature, anybody who sees your post could stumble over to your guide. Good luck!

I'm not sure Dolby Home Theater is the same DSP as Dolby Headphone.

 

Maybe Nameless would know...

Not quite tongue.gif.  It's actually this guy

 

The sporta pros are like the porta pros but with a different frame.  They're all KSC 35 drivers.  Sporta pros are the cheapest way to get the drivers though.

 

I've been wearing mine on the parts express headband, and I likey.

The Mad Dogs are kind of moot for me now though, seeing as my LCD2 will be here any day now.

And speaking of the KSC35, I have to send that in to get fixed. rolleyes.gif

Been using the 75s for weeks now.
