You'll get cinematic bass with the Signature DJ as well. I dived into the experience from the very beginning. Never heard such a great subwoofer bass in headphones that doesn't destory the rest of the spectrum and hits very hard. I finished Infamous in 2 days which is beyond my regular habits. biggrin.gif

Similar. Dont have them to A/B, but they have a similar level of presence and impact, fwir.

High end Denons are probably the only headphones that give you that sub-woofer like ear rattling sub-bass. They ought to since there one of the leading high end home theatre manufacturers.

Lighter and more comfortable, for sure.

Don't know if It'll feel like a subwoofer, with movie audio, though. Dubstep sounds like it has a really really loud subwoofer attached, though.

Edit: Note, when I say these are uncomfortable without the mod, I mean I find the HD 280s comfortable, and MLE gave those a 1 for comfort. MLE, you need to get these just so I can find out what score you'd give them.

+1
Default pads are a bit uncomfortable at first and they really did hurt my ears, especially the left one for some reason. Believe me though, when I say that the more you use them, the less they'll hurt because they'll slowly take the right shape! At the moment, I can wear them for about 2-3 hours with no problem whatsoever.

The bass is of a very high quality and doesn't get in the way at all! The mids are very clear and treble is a tinsy bit recessed. I'm in love with these cans honestly. :-)

has anyone tried out the he-300 rev.2 ? very curious as to how these might perform with dolby headphone

post #13779 of 31629

Hi, I recently bought Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and I want to bring that surround experience into my ears. So I was looking for surround sound headsets.

I'm also using a MSI GE60 notebook as my gaming machine. So I don't know about its onboard sound quality which has THX TruStudio Pro drivers on it (I don't know if it tells something).

 

The place where I'm at several different prices for the headsets I'm considering. People often suggest Astro A40/A50's but it's not available in my area. Also Turtle Beach isn't available too. So my options are as follows:

 

Corsair Vengeance 1500 (165$)

Plantronics Gamescom 780 (102$)

SteelSeries Siberia V2  USB (170$)

 

These are my first options, there are also:

 

Sennheiser PC 360 (255$)

Sennheiser PC 363d (325$)

 

So PC 360 is one of the favorites, but a bit pricey. So between the first three, which one you choose? Or should I really get PC 360.

 

My main concern is the surround sound quality, I want a realistic sound production from the phones.

post #13780 of 31629
I have the pc360 and that would be my vote they have a nice soundstage, nice detail and bass is neutral. Good sense of space and airiness. While gaming I can get a few extra kills just based on sound whoring with Dolby enabled. There are better headphones available for the price with standalone mic, but as a headset they are great. The pc363d is pretty much the same headset except cosmetics altered and a dac included. I personally don't think the extra $ is worth it unless you are skimping on $ and don't already have a dac substitute.

You should get the HD598 with a ModMic if you have a device with Dolby Headphone, it's an upgrade on the HD595/PC360.

+1 agreed unless you want a headset and don't mind paying a premium price for all in one the hd598 senn would be a better option in $ and sound.

Wow, I'd love to hear the theaters you guys go to! Sometimes a Michael Bay movie or the like will reach down into the bass, but I wouldn't say he theaters have great bass. They can go lower than most speakers, but when I'm there and hearing it these days I'm often thinking about how much distortion there is, stress in the speaker's efforts even after they upgraded to the DLP projectors and refurbished the theaters and stuff.

My memory is a bit fainter on the $15.50 per ticket theater down at the Waterfront, but in general I've cut down on going to the theater a lot because it was relatively inexpensive to own better than average AV equipment and have a more satisfying movie experience at home. Better popcorn too. I had an almost godly experience watching Star Trek and Terminator 2 with my AKG's, and my Polk Audio 2.1 setup is pretty great even though it is smoother and so-far not a surround setup.
post #13784 of 31629

Yeah, it's really strange. I've never really heard of a movie theater with good audio...

post #13785 of 31629
Most standard movie theaters excessively echo the sound and have crap mids and highs, but IMAX is better.
