Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (4/8/2015: Full X2 Review update) - Page 1100

This guy did a pretty significant price drop on his K712s:

He's asking for shipping + paypal fees extra though...

I predict a lot of MA900 headset mods, like they've done with the AD700.

 

It's very likely that I'll be sticking some kind of mic on my MA900 in the future, at any rate.

 

For that matter, Sony needs to wise up and start making gaming headsets based on the MA900/F1 design instead of the stuff they're pumping out now...

I guess a good old Antlion modmic will easily attach side of the cups. Still, nothing beats the easy integration of the v-moda mic...


And that stock cable is a bit thinner than I'd like.

I am one of the few that don't really like the 3d iCan switch apparently? Don't like its signature that much.

What headphones did you use it with? 

 

It works best with warm headphones IMO, because it adds a little treble energy and air when it's ON.

HE-500 mostly. It is pretty nice with movies and games, etc. Also some music.

post #16492 of 30510

Does the iCan drive the HE500s OK?

David... by some chance, you know anyone named Semir Ugljanin? I have a few friends in Copenhagen. smily_headphones1.gif

No, I don't.. Live pretty far away from Copenhagen anyway :)

 

The iCan drives the 500's pretty decent, actually. Nice dynamics and lively sound, but lacks that control and bass impact of bigger amps. Think there'd be better amps for the 500's for the price, but the iCan is decent, and definitely better than the e17...

I'm missing the planar magnetic sound of the LCD2.

I wish Hifiman would release a less edgy upgrade to the HE400, with less weight than the HE500. Hopefully new design too.

HE-4?

The HE-4 is on the bright side, and doesn't have the HE-400's bass. Also, the need for a nuclear power plant to drive them properly isn't exactly ideal.

Old design, with horrible pad mechanism.

Mad Lust, any chance of seeing an Brainwavz HM5 review entering the thread?

Unlikely, unless I was sent a pair for review.

Hmm... I'm interested in the HD239 and/or PX100-II for away use.

They have a single cable entry point and looking at the pictures, it should be possible to stick a female TRS plug in there.  That would be a pretty cool headset indeed...
