The X1's bass is impressive for an open headphone, but the D7000's bass is unlike anything I've heard from a headphone.

 

From what I've read about the TH900 though, I would probably prefer it to the D7000 as it's said to be more balanced and refined while still having amazing bass.

Hear, hear. The D7000's bass is legendary to me. Nothing.... NOTHING touches it for me. Not the LCD2, not the HE400, not the Pro 900.... nothing.

BTW, I must say, i found the Denon D600 to be INCREDIBLY comfortable. Not sure how long the pads would stay cool, but man... it felt damn good on my head.

edit: I'm hating my laptop's shift key. If i don't capitalize... blame that, not me. frown.gif

How about a Stax Omega 2 or something?

Comfort? What comfort? tongue.gif

I wasn't bagging on you, I was trying to leave you anonymous. Neither was I suggesting you had done anything, mostly that your and Mad's experience was markedly different from mine, and maybe there was a manufacturing defect (or maybe they accidentally made mine better than average?).

But anyway, BF3 used Frostbite 2. Probably about as much change between BF:BC2 and BF2 as between BF3 and BC2. I thought before that you said positioning was bad in BF3 because there was too much going on (and explosions created an in-game effect of ringing ears, muting the rest of game audio). But hey, it would be cool if we squad'ed up sometime.

I probably won't get BF4, just because it's like "Too Soon!" but I probably will pick up Star Wars Battlefront 3 (cuz I'm a sucker for SW). I'm about to play Tomb Raider just now tho, this is the first time I'm really taxing my GPU and I was AMAZED (compared to Xbox) when I found 5 mins to play this morning.

 

Yeah, if there's one thing that stands out in the world of audio, it's personal preferences and clashing tastes. Ultimately, this means that after a point, nobody's really right or wrong because we all hear differently...to the point where I'd even argue that once your gear's high-end enough, the real bottleneck in the audio chain is going to be the listener's own two ears.

 

I'd disagree on the change from BF:BC2 to BF3 being like the change from BF2 to BF:BC2; if anything, it's more like the change from BF1942/BF:Vietnam to BF2/BF2142, all four of which used the same Refractor engine since Codename: Eagle (the series' spiritual predecessor), but got some major upgrades with BF2 (ragdoll physics, pixel shader effects, and replacing Miles Sound System-based DS3D with OpenAL come to mind).

 

Going from BF2/BF2142 to BF:BC2 meant an entire engine transition from Refractor to Frostbite, which made for quite a drastic change. Going from BF:BC2's Frostbite to BF3's Frostbite 2.0 seems like more of an incremental upgrade by comparison, arguably even less than the BF: Vietnam to BF2 transition.

 

Speaking of squadding up, though...maybe we can get some sort of BF3 Origin Head-Fi squad going, for all we know?

post #14392 of 31567
My Origin is Holotype but I'm pretty rusty as I haven't fired up a game in many weeks. Glad to squad along if other people are on though.

That would be totally unfair to those squads without tactical headphones... tongue_smile.gif

I can't shoot for **** on BF3. It just feels weird. I miss my arcadey CoD shooting.

That's because there's actually real recoil on BF3 lol. It takes much practice to get used to it. Hell, I've been playing it for 18 months and still can't shoot for sh**, sometimes... tongue_smile.gif

Just wait 'til you try Counter-Strike...I have the worst luck with actually hitting anything in that game, 1.6 and Source alike. (Haven't really tried Global Offensive.)

 

At least Battlefield series crosshairs actually give you a decent idea of weapon accuracy, and while it's too early for me to speak on BF3, BF1942 and BF2 are pretty straightforward.

 

(By the way, BF1942's free on Origin, except it's under the "demos" section for some stupid reason. If you don't mind the decade-old look, why not give it a shot?)

I played it on the 360. Not a fan. The last Bf I liked was the first Bad Company. Other than that, I'm a CoD guy. I prefer BF2: Modern Combat as far as BF goes. I miss that crazy game. So sad when the servers died.... i played that game almost as much as CoD4. I was a beast on it. My very first FPS ever. Then came CoD4, and I was hooked.

Ain't that the truth! I'm a level 77 (Demfox20 on 360) and I still get owned when im not on my favorite maps. BF3 is the real deal plus doesn't hurt that it has the greatest sound ever in any game. My Mixamp lets me use any headphone I own and that game wil test the limits of your cans and your sanity lol. MMX300's are still the best gaming cans I've owned or tried and the bf3 they're practically God like. For regular headphones the a900x are probably some of the best I've personally tried with my Mixamp, way underrated IMO.


Thanks,
