+1.

DH won't make you a FPS monster and probably won't impact your K/D ratio all that much either, but it sure as hell gives you the time to react better in every situation thanks to a much more accurate positional sound, because you can approximately tell where a threat is coming from and how far is from you.

Your skills, your knowledge of the maps and other player's weaknesses (and TEAM(WORK) >_>). That's what really makes the difference...Being able to pinpoint the enemy's location thanks to a more accurate sound, is just the icing on the cake.

It worked for me, on MGO, although that's not your typical FPS game...it's more tactical and slow paced. For example, with my old "all in one" headset I couldn't precisely pinpoint which floor other players were hiding. It was a muddy mess...but switching to the HD555 (plus the DSS obviously), I could finally do that and as a result my performace improved as well. With the DT990 it was even better, because I find it even more accurate than the Sennheiser.

R.I.P. MGO, btw.

Is this how you do with all the headphones that you have tested in youre guide?

 

I will be getting K601 to have as reference for future headphones (if needed).

My current(and only ever had) headphones are Sennheiser HD212pro, I have had them very long maybe 7-10years.

They are closed and are considered to be bass & "fun" friendly according these reviews 

Ive read they have good positional direction for gaming considered they are closed, my guess is that the K601 propably is better.

 

The K601 are supposed to be on the low side when it comes to bass, they are open headphones, analytical(?), Ive read one member write they have similar sound to Q701, some say it is quality wise slightly below or equal to K701.

 

Price wise here in Sweden it is much lower compared to K701/Q701 so it logicaly should be not as good but regardless I'm hoping to be satisfied with them :)

 

Basicaly the K701 is 50% more expensive then K601, then the Q701 is 100% more expensive then K601, and lastly K702annie is 100% more expensive then Q701 so the Annie is 4 times as expensive as K601 

 

This decision makes no sense. It sounds like you're expecting to get close to Q701 performance for a fraction of the price. You are going to be disappointed. For the money you're spending, there are better choices out there.

But he lives in a place where prices run way differently then most others. The K601s are more expensive then the Q701s in the USA, so price really doesn't judge value in either countries.

Naingolann,
Well... My K:D DID rise, slowly, over time, as I got used to making use of surround rather than just sound "Alert! someone is shooting!" It took a while to retrain, but it raised a skill cap a little bit for me. I know that I could be even better if I was selective with my aggression (still you don't win by camping all the time), in fact I do have my "try-hard" moments where I am as strategic as I am tactical, but making use of surround is near-instinctual and takes little concentration.

It's too bad MGO was gone by the time I heard of it. I guess that's because I was only focused on what would be available on the system I had. Still, I wish I had been able to play some Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory in Surround before THAT game's mp shut down. The new SC game's emphasis on action seems to further the direction SC: Conviction was going... I'm going to miss the old voice actor.

Maybe the price after conversion rate to US $ is more, but the Q701 is priced higher still, so the value is still somewhat to scale. Wasn't the K601 a former flagship model from AKG? But many (perhaps most) agree that the K701 was an improvement, and the Q701 a minor improvement over that (though retroactive to the still-produced K701 & 2). So, the K601 should still be good, but maybe bright and not a representation of what the Q701 sounds like.

That makes sense, but there's always the AD700.

Just picked up a pair of PortaPros and, holy poop, is that sound really coming out of a $40 headphone?! Can't wait to try these things on some BF3 tonight. Are these the same drivers that are in the KSC35 and SportaPros?

post #13508 of 31260
Same as the drivers in the KSC75, which I just bought. Similar, though.
post #13509 of 31260

Portapro, Sportapro, KSC35  =  Same drivers

 

KSC75  =  Titanium coated drivers

I'm not even a fan of Halo.  I do wish I was able to play Gears though.

 

 

Gears is my favorite xbox exclusive.  I LOVE the multiplayer in it. 

Halo has pretty epic campaigns (most fun when played in Co-op) but I don't like the multiplayer  :\

 

 

Not sure which console I'll go with for next gen.  I might switch over to Playsation....

If I had to grab just one, it's probably going to be Xbox, but chances are I'll pick up both. Nothing is exciting me about PS4, though. I bought my PS3 first day and I only used it for the Blu-Ray and GT5, which was awful. It's just collected dust for years now.

I can only speak for myself. But DH is a huge reason why I do so well. I can have near zero death games on the regular because DH gives me a good field of sojnd, that anything out of place that I notice, I can pick out near instantly, keeping me from getting killed. If I didnt have it, I WOULD die quite a bit more. Dh is an extension of myself in certain games like COD.

Yes, personal skill is involved, but DH boosts your awareness by a LOT.

I didn't even know the xbox 360 had exclusives besides GoW and Halo...

 

On the other hand, the PS3 has a good amount of single player games that can be enjoyed. Maybe Its just I don't like multiplayer games that makes the PS3 way better in my eyes...

post #13514 of 31260

sooo no less bright alternative to the DT 880 at around $250?

 

Saw the Fidelio L1, looked interesting, anyone tried those with  dolby headphone?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_game_exclusives_%28seventh_generation%29

 

A couple other nice xbox exclusivses were Alan Wake, Forza, and Left 4 Dead (valve hated PS3 for a while there).

 

PS3 has some cool ones that I'd like to play, like Heavy Rain, Killzone, Uncharted, etc.

 

 

I think the Next Xbox gets revealed next week, so I'll have to see the direction they're taking it...
