Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (4/8/2015: Full X2 Review update) - Page 1107

Well if you listen to music at insanely loud volume levels like many people at local meets do, then the noise leakage is a huge problem especially when you can hear someone else's music over your own headphones over the background chatter.

 

-_-

 

I also hate it when people let you listen to their headphones and they control the volume knob. Say the volume knob is at the 3 o'clock position:

 

Person: Is this too loud for you?

Me: Uh...hellz yeah it is! Tune it down back to 9 o'clock please.

I just am asking for a better choice.

 

I never am asking for a recommendation of headphones that are great for all.

 

It's because that I made a list where is those good choices what I guess.

That happens in sub-optimal situation like meets. If you're in public, chances are, you're not gonna be using open headphones. For home use, it's doubtful you'd ever need that much volume.

I rarely go above 8% on the windows volume slider. Anything above that just starts to hurt.

Thank you once more, Mad, for your recommendations and patience.

My bad, it seems PC master volume is upsampled as to not lose audio quality from the OS volume (Vista and newer). What you DON'T wanna do is lower software volume control.

Haha

 

Yes.  I've noticed that as well.  How can their ears take that much volume?

 

*Person gives me a headphone then turns the volume several "o'clocks" past comfortable listening level*

Person:  So...how does this headphone sound to you?

Me:  Hmm....LOUD!!

That's not too far off from the price difference here.

 

MA900 ~$189

K712    ~$385

post #16602 of 30548

Hmm at that price headphone that will cover applications that the X1 doesn't....
 

If the Sound Blaster Z can power them then my willpower will be tested.

While everyone is talking about sound cards, what sound card is recommended for gaming usage (Dolby Headphone, I guess?) for the Senn PC 360? I believe someone mentioned an Asus card, however, there seems to have been a few more brought up and I'm wondering what would best fit my usage scenario.

I don't think it's been long enough yet, not been quite a month yet since that email, but I am anticipating great things. In the meantime, I am re-acquiring a Recon3D USB and I intend to compare them someday.

The priority is even positional gaming. So, by elimination, open headphone are the right choice.

Excuse for I 'm not manifesting me so well, but I don't know speak English.

I hope you had understood my asking. In other word, among those headphones I've listed, what's your recommendation for me?
The fact that you aren't a native English speaker, yet you used the word "manifesting," makes you awesome in my view. smily_headphones1.gif
Among the headphones you listed, with your preferences, I would suggest either the Sony or AKG headphone. Everyone so far has been surprisingly pleased with the MA900, it gives you everything you need and is very easy to live with, but the AKG provides that extra 2% of wow that will spoil you from anything less.

^Check out nameless's guide here. Lotsa ideas and setups for each budget.

I'd also like to take a moment to thanks MLE for this thread for I would not have gotten the x1 without it. Should have my mad dogs 3.2 in by Monday for my closed set. Now just gotta find a portable for my work and commute set. Been getting less and less inclined to use IEMS nowadays. Maybe when the wallet recovers a bit i'll look into some Beyer 1350s :P. Gotta go put the beats on ebay and Prolly should sell my second set of X1s.

Just finished Bioshock Infinite and i didn't even turn on my z5500 once since i got the X1s. Definitely also have been "rediscovering" music esp old EDM and oh what a difference a little bit of bass makes. So much more enjoyable than the HD280s. Since i've been playing A TON of Dota 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7H30B013I0
