Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (4/8/2015: Full X2 Review update) - Page 1076

Hey guys question.

Really dumb question.... I purchased the Creative Soundblaster Zxr for my computer to power my new AKG K702 65th anniversary headphones. Do I need a portable amp? Something like the Fio E5 Portable Headphone amplifier? Is that something I need or something like the FiiO E12 Mont Blanc? OR do you think I should be ok?

You are very ok.

Hey guys, I have a question too.

 

Has anybody made experiences with the Reloop RHM-10 microphone attachment?

It looks like this:

There is an 3.5mm audio input and a 3.5mm microphone output on the other side of the 3m cable.

 

I haven't found anything about it in this forum and also nothing helpful on google.

 

I'm concerned if the audio cable is of good enough quality for a 300$ headphone. The microphone doesn't matter too much as it is only supposed to be used in teamspeak/skype.

 

I'm also open to alternatives but I don't want a table microphone.

You might not think it's a big deal, but listening to someone with a bad mic is quite annoying. I got a Labtec LVA-7330 off eBay and I just put it around my neck and aim the boom at my face. Not the most glamorous thing in the world, but it gets the job done and sounds great.

I know your concern and I meant that the quality should be enough for teamspeak, no need for studio quality. If possible it should filter the sound of my mouse and keyboard which are at a medium loudness in my opinion.

 

Also I just saw the Beyerdynamic Custom Headset Gear which is about 2.5x as expensive but looks like a better quality to me. 

Personally I want to stay with the cheaper Reloop.

 

Sadly the Labtec isn't available in my continent (at least not for me) xD

What about this:

Looks higher quality than that Reloop mic.

I own the v-moda and can confirm that it's great.  I love it.  I did, stupidly haha, return my first one thinking it was defective.  In reality, the mic comes with the default setting of being muted, which I did not even consider, and I thought it just wasnt picking up my voice.  Once the new one came in I realized my mistake and its awesome!

You will be ok. Best test is to just try it, lol. The FiiO E5 would be a downgrade in power and clarity, and if the ZxR is anything like Asus' STX soundcard with similar specs, then it has about equal power output to a FiiO E09k desktop amp. Ohm-rating is a very poor way to tell how much "power" an amp can handle, what you should care about is current and gain.

Let us know how the Zxr sounds and if it's good enough... will probably get one for myself, so I'm really interested in how more demanding headphones will do with it.

Hey, I am looking for some closed headphones for general use (music, games, movies) and I am interested in the DT770 Pros. I noticed in the guide the version reviewed was the 80ohms version which is supposed to have more bass. Do you think the 250 version would be better for games?

post #16136 of 30824

I'm going to go ahead and put my MA900s up for sale. 

 

Too much overlap with what I already have, so they'll get neglected if I keep them.

 

Somebody buy them! popcorn.gif

I swear, you will appreciate them. Especially how comfy and unobtrusive they are, even compared to the X1 and Annie.
post #16140 of 30824
They're definitely nice for hot weather! My KSC 35 can still handle that though.

Under normal temperatures the MA900 aren't necessarily more comfy for ME as Im a little conscious of the pads and tend to micro adjust them too often. They both less intrusive and more obtrusive so it sort of cancels itself out.


If I didn't already have the Anniversaries and X1s I could probably justify keeping them - but I DO have them. tongue.gif
