@mle

how strong of an amp do you need for the Mad Dog to use portable? I have an E07K that I'm not using very much, but I see a mini3 amp on for sale forum if that's needed. I have a d2000 that I use at home and am looking at these for walking around. also is the bass similar/better than he-400? thanks

No problem! smily_headphones1.gif
Hope you enjoy! It's hard to guess what prices will be like in another country, or know what your purchase options are. The DT990 are also very good.

Do you feel these mixers are a cheaper option then getting a new pair of headphones ?

The mini3 is tiny and doesn't look like it'd be a worthwhile improvement over the amp in the E07K.

now that I think about it I think the mini barely has more power. I was looking at the high performance version of the mini. gonna take a look at the e07k specs

edit: well after looking at the specs, i was wrong. the mini3 is actually twice as strong as my e07k.

Headfonia finally reviewed the T90, and they seem to like it:

I guess it depends on how much more bass you need.

 

Need a proper cinema experinece, like at the movies, not too much bass but adequate.

You know what I mean ?

E07K: 220 mW@32 Ω
Mini3: 300 mW@33 Ω

E12:   880 mW@32 Ω

 

If you want portable power, I'd get the E12.

You're not going to get the same bass as a theatre with headphones, you need subwoofers for that. The bass boost on the DSS doesn't cause distortion from my experience.

Any difference between the DSS1 or 2, the DSS1 is cheap, worth getting?

I agree, the DSS bass boost is pretty clean.  Your headphone drivers will probably rattle before the DSS distorts (rattling is the headphones fault, not the DSS).

Yes, they use different surround sound processing.  The DSS 1 uses Dolby Headphone, while the DSS 2 uses something called "Cirrus Logic headphone surround". 

Not much is known about the latter.  Turtle Beach may have used it instead of Dolby Headphone to save money on licensing fees.  Turtle Beach's flagship headsets use Dolby Headphone.

 

The DSS 2 does a couple other things, like shifting around the virtual speakers and has with a few digital EQs built-in.

 

I believe the DSS 1 has a nicer bass boost.

So I just got the S500s in. They sound amazing with techno, but jeez these or so uncomfortable. The clamp isn't as bad as the 280s, but at least the 280 pads were soft. These feel like bricks against my ears...

The closest thing to getting movie theater subwoofer bass is probably a headphone like the D7000, which is way out of your price bracket.

 

The bass tends to roll off with open headphones as it gets closer to sub bass.  You can bass boost them to try and correct that dB drop off, or you could just hook up a sub and use it along with the headphones... 0_0

How often do movie theaters have subwoofers? The only time I notice it is when they decide to make the entire movie play at 100 db... Its so annoying...

The D7000 is the most cinematic headphone I've used. It produces bass like no other headohone I have heard, while maintaining clarity. If it's movie theater type bass without destroying the quality everywhere else, hunt for some D7000s.

What about your LCD-2 rendezvous?
