$100-$150 for a controller. Not worth it at all unless it prints money.

Good, for a minute I thought I was the only one who thought that is the utter waste of money

$100+ gamepads that are just custom-modified versions of official first-party gamepads? No thanks.

 

If anything, $60 for a new gamepad is expensive enough as is. The price really adds up when you want to have some local multiplayer.

I had one for a while. Sold it after a bit because I realized just how much of a waste of money they are. I'm maybe marginally better with a Scuf on competitive games such as CoD. Don't get one unless you either have a ton of money to burn or are committing to a gaming profession. If I have a ton of money, I MAY consider getting the base model one for PS4.

Now Kontrol Freeks and Squidgrips are two controller accessories I can't play without.

I had squidgrip for PS3 some time ago. Had to throw'em away when the controller died on me. Still it was a great accessory

Never tried the CAL! but from reading many impressions of it, I think the SoundMAGIC HP200 might be a well suited upgrade for ya smily_headphones1.gif

So I have a question, I currently have my fiio x3 set as my dac, now assuming I want to use surround sound software for my headphones is there anyway to use this while the x3 is connected? I am getting basically 2 volume output sources on my pc if I pick the one with surround sound I get no sound from the x3, anyone have a solution to this?

I guess You're connecting x3 through USB. Well, virtual surround can be outputted (sorry for bad english) through analog or optical port. Since x3 doesn't have optical/coaxial input You can't really use it as a virtual surround dac. There is a method for doing this posted on the first page of this thread but I'm not really sure how is this supposed to work

Sorry, I meant to say HP100, the closed version.
post #24222 of 30679

ok, now You are onto something. Even price is better than hp200.

Thanks. Will read up on this. Especially build quality as it is kinda the worst point of CAL!

Been gaming with my X1s for about 6 months now. So amazing. Such a step up from my Astros A40s. Night and day!!!
Now the right driver is effed! Distortion. Crackling. Basically every time someone talks in a game. Happened in a Wolfenstien. Went over to bf4. Same.
Soooo bummed. I live in japan. Bought them in the USA. Phillips won't honor their warranty cause I bought them in a different country . I have to send them back to the USA, send them to phillips get them sent back here. Probably cost me 100 bucks and take months.

What should I buy in the mean time. I can't take a step back. No way.
Hd598? Akg 702? Beyer??? T90, t70?
I use astro mix amp. Can it drive 250 ohm cans like hd650s?
Hifiman he-4s.
I have vmoda m100s at work but have gamed with them. Talk about fun cans!!! I want something like the m100 for gaming. Maybe I can get some new closed back for work and then use my m100s for gaming?
Realy want alpha dogs. And i can buy direct and get shipped to japan. Or t90s?
Possibilities are endless. So I want something as good as or as fun as the x1s or m100s

Went up to mad dogs from an x1. Bass isn't as boomy but way more accurate and enough for me. Became even less bass when I upgraded them to alphas (never adjusted the bass screw though) but got even more accurate and are almost as open as the X1s.I ended up selling the x1s to fund a Lyr 2 (also sold an Asgard 2). X1s non replaceable cups worried me in the long run and customer service from Dan at Mr.speaker's is top notch. Looking to either get a he400\he400i or he500\he560 for open bass slam phones (to pair with the alphas) as I do miss the fun sound signature of the x1. Maybe they'll make a replaceable cup X2 someday.

The problem is amping. Don't the hifiman and the alphas need some amping above and beyond the astro mix amp?
X2s..... Those would. Be nice. Hoping vmoda with coming out with xs version of th m100. They are like an upgraded m800 right? How about an upgraded m100. I couldn't imagine a more insane set of cans.
