Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (4/8/2015: Full X2 Review update) - Page 1165

post #17461 of 30794

I bought Journey during a sale a while back. At under $4 (with PS+), why not?

 

I've actually bought a few games off PSN here and there, most recently Okami HD and D&D: Chronicles of Mystara.

 

(Normally, I'd buy the latter on PC, and I probably will when the inevitable Steam sale hits, but a game like that just has to be played in the university game room, with people on couches next to you. I don't trust my little HP 2730p with its godawful Intel graphics to be capable of running any PC game these days.)

They still looked pristine by the time I shipped them to Calpis. The person before me (MattTCG? Change?) did a really tidy job wrapping the cable too. They may not be suitable to chuck into a backpack, but really they only LOOK flimsy because of the size ratio between the headband and earcups.

Please review the k712 first biggrin.gif since it will be out here soon and wanting to hear early impression of it. Are the e12 or 17 not powerful enoug for the akg or md?
YouTube stuff gets blocked on my iPhone sometimes too. The game is Journey, I know it's on the PS3 but it may be on PC too? At any rate, I sure hope they make it available to download on PS4. I really enjoyed the demo of the game at our Walmart, even though as always I'm reminded how much I dislike Playstation controllers.

Journey won't ever be on any other competing platforms since it was basically all funded by Sony.

Youtube is being blocked in China completely, along with facebook, twitter, blog and other download host sites.
I dont really care for those sites, but banning download sites... its getting difficult to download jav here
Journey is ps3 exclusive. I hope it will be available on ps4 later, along with ni no kuni, uncarted, killzone and god of war series.
Damn, i really regret buying a 360 now...

Imo, this is the best looking planar cans yet... Much better compared to Audeze and hifiman bland design.

hope is sound good too and doesn't weight a ton. i wonder how will it do on gaming.

Too much hype. Oppo hasn't proved anything yet with headphones.

Agreed it got too many hype, I never know oppo made a cans before. Its only known for smartphones in China.

Still, its really a good looking planar phones imo. Hoped it sound as good as it's looks and good for game too.

Like I said before, My guess they will have rough road on start. Give them few years and I think they might able to compete with hifiman.

Hi, I'm going for a pair of headphones under $300 for gaming (I will also get a snowball mic), but I'm really stuck on what to buy. The Philips Fidelio X1/00 ones look really good, and you rated them well. Would these be the best possible headphones I can buy for Battlefield 4? And will I need a soundcard?

The X1's would serve you well in BF4. Another choice would be Sony's MA-900.

 

A sound card isn't always required since most mother boards have on-board audio now. However, Creative's new Z series gives you a very nice surround sound experience. That Recon USB is well though of as well.

I really don't like how flimsy the Sony ones look, plus the x1s seem to be better. Should I go for the x1s over the Sennheiser 558s?

 

 

Hm, I'm thinking of going for the Asus Xonar DGX because going for a top notch sound card would be over my budget, I have a gigabyte UD3H Z77X motherboard, will I see much of a difference?

 

Thanks

They LOOK flimsy. Unless you are a barbarian, the MA900 will be just as sturdy as most of headphones out there. For the few weeks I had them, I tossed the MA900s into my backpack every day for work, and I didn't think twice about it getting damaged or anything. Like I mentioned on the review, unless you start yanking on it's cable on a normal basis, you shouldn't have any issues with it.

The X1 will definitely not be as good as the MA900s for competitive gaming, but the X1 is my best recommendation for the price if you want a bass heavy headphone that does everything else relatively well.

Oh, I see, thanks but in the UK the x1s cost more than the Sony MA900s by £17. So should I go with the Sony's as they're cheaper than the x1s?

That doesn't seem to be a large price difference. I'd recommend whichever you feel you'd be more happy with sound-wise. Bassy and more energetic, better build (but pads aren't replaceable) or warmer, more balanced, and less fatiguing?

Both of them are well worth their price. Both of them are very comfortable overall, and both of them are easy to drive.
post #17475 of 30794

I'm not a diehard competitive gamer, but I spend long hours on games on the PC. I like bass-heavy headphones, and comfortable ones. I think I may go with the X1s.

 

Anyway, anything's better than my current Turtlebeach x12s right? xD
