If the lawton pads attempt to reduce bass, it's an absolute failure to me. Why the hell would anyone try to take away what makes Denons...Denons? Get an LCD2 if you want better mids while retaining some (SOME) good bass.

Nothing can touch the D7000 to me. The fact everyone says the two new Fostex have less bass, means they aren't as memorable to me.

 

Sounds to me like your ears are subconsciously thriving for the D7000's bass! biggrin.gif

 

I wish I was lucky enough to try them... let alone afford them. tongue_smile.gif

I've always wanted them again. But I've been pushing this want aside in favor of trying new things.

Im half temoted on cancelling my pre order of the Kingsound stats.

I agree on trying new things, especially in your position. Still, you should own your favorite can. I mean... it is your favorite, right? With all the help you guys have given me, I have personally assigned myself as the person that will try to add that final convincing for you to go back to your precious babies.

I must confess the D7000 is rather special for gaming and movies. I'd say for this category it's subjectively more enjoyable than any headphone I've tried so far when weighting immersion in with spatial representation. This includes the 650/701/880 trio and AT's closed back portfolio. The response and presentation is just eerily similar to a nice speaker arrangement.

Nonetheless, using them for music makes me realized how accustomed I am to intoxicating mids. I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not to keep them.

I hope you try the Fidelio X1.

Try and review the akg k550 because the sound stage and directional sound ques from it are amazing.

I demoed the K550 a few times and thought they sounded like crap. If I review them, its gonna come from a loaner, and I don't expect to like it all that much.

They had an odd seal when I demoed them. Once I got them to seal properly I thought it was ok. But it didn't have any major presence in any area and no overall strong points from what I heard. Plus, to get that seal I had to press the pads against my face. It was a really loose fit, which is odd considering that "one size fits all" hats are too small for me.

I just found them a bit lifeless, dry and artificial sounding in the treble.

Might work well for competitive gaming, but I want enjoyment too.

The K550s just don't have enough bass.

The Q701 is a lot more enjoyable to me. And they aren't particularly bassy.

I whole heartedly agree. If someone wants a great closed set, the Mad Dogs deliver. I'm running the 3.1 and I absolutely love them as my closed set. Now I just need to find a complimentary IEM to my HF3, pick up Annie pads, and I should be set for a while.

Recently, I've purchased a Astro gaming mixamp latest edition (2013) for my PS3 and paired with K701, the sound was spectacular.

 

However, there is one minor problem. Whenever, I turn my volume knob towards MAX and as I reach between the middle and MAX I can hear non-stop hissing and buzzing noise. Both when I'm playing a game or doing nothing (quiet), the noise is very noticeable.

I've tried to pair with other cans/earphones and tried hooking it up to PC, and the noise was still there.

 

I've contacted Astro support about this and so far I haven't got any replies so far.

 

Is this normal?

I own both and each are amazing in their own way but overall the LCD 2's are superior overall. The D5k's are super fun with addictive bass and great clarity but so are the LCD's but with better sound separation and a significantly better mid range.

How much do you have to spend on an amp? So many to choose from!


Thanks,

Yes.  The mixamp starts hissing after about 2/3s travel on the volume pot.
