Designing a headphone with bass elevated starts to become looser and less clear after about 7 dB. You can tighten the impact a bit with a dedicated amp, but the decay will still be longer. Some people just like that sound though, it's a matter of taste.

If you really wanna know what a large bass-weighted frequency response sounds like, use an EQ to reduce everything else and crank up the volume. From where my brain interprets the average volume level from, bass like that just is too much, I seek even bass/mids (maybe a bit of treble lift) but good extension into subbass and great "holographic"-level detail, THAT excites me

I was joking when I asked that...

Hmm, I actually read it as a serious question as well. You do try out new cans quite often. :p

But seriously though, I think the Aviator is HIGHLY underrated. They sound clearly better than the Shure SRH-840 and Sennheiser HD558 for example.

Because you're a sarcastic smartass? That's why I do things like that. :p I'd rather be a smartass than a dumbass.

The Aviator is so bad, it wont even reach my ears properly... lol, it doesnt extend down enough for my head shape/size.

MLE what's your opinion about Q701 vs MA900, which one is better for fps? Or other better recommendation. No basshead.

Thx

I prefer the MA900 for it's more all rounder nature, while for sound whoring, the Q701 is better, just hate the headband, so much. I would suggest getting a newer K702 over the Q701 instead. Which then you can also buy some K712 pads, for a more all rounder, warmer sound for the K702 (giving you options for more soundwhoring with standard pads or more fun and warmth with K712 pads, which will be better than the MA900.)

For me, the MA900 was the more easy-going headphone. Both are good, but I liked the excitement and extension of the Q701.

Giving these DT880 a run... Pretty neat, great with surround cues
post #24566 of 30821
Btw, I'm running these 600 ohm DT880's off the DSS alone... Have to have the volume almost all the way up, but these things are DAMN transparent! Surround is very 3D

I may just end up getting myself a pair down the road. Since I've sold the K612, I've been feeling the sense that I'm missing a reference, neutral headphone with linear bass and a large soundstage. The HP200 with the alcantaras is a bit warmish and the soundstage is not as wide as the AKGs. I would have just kept K612, but it was just too similar to my HP200. The K702/Q701 is distinct enough to justify owning one... down the road that is.

Get the q701 if it's for sound whoring on cod I play cod competitively on mlg gbs and the q701s are on another level to anything I've ever used.

Do You have a youtube or a twitch channel? I'm curious how great cans affect the playstyle

post #24570 of 30821
Yes my YouTube channel is called MrEleven1181
I was actually doing a mlg gb the other day and I was last alive on s&d and all my teammates were shouting we can hear him behind you. I said shut up he's in front on me to the left and as soon as I ran round the corner guess who was right me lol

Also I'm only using the q701 with the mixamp but my schiit vali just came as I'm writing this reply so they should sound even better now.
