I tried the SRM-2170 with Counter Strike: Global Offensive and it wasn't bad. I prefer the K 701 over it for gaming but the soundstage of the SRM-2170 is definitely more 2D and positional cues aren't as apparent in comparison. Maybe it's due to the K 701's odd imaging and 1D soundstage.

"Meanwhile playing The.Last of Us"
-_- °-° 0_0 ^_^ :O biggrin.gif
Seriously I am having so much fun with this game. The story the characters the gameplay the graphics the sound... This must win the GOTY! I am so into this game ~ even though I know the ending already :/ (thanks internet!), there is just so much stuff... I am halfway through the game so far and enjoying every single second... An absolute recommendation! Well played again you Naughty Dog you, well played.

I'm still holding out before buying TLoU. The price is still a bit too steep and it's not like I have no backlog to attend to anyway... x_x

So the Philip X1 earpads are really not replaceable for real? I haven't got any confirmation from the company, ppl are just talking about how they can't replace them. That's the only one thing that stop me from buying this awesome X1 headphone for gaming. I guess I would have to go with the DT 990 250ohm pro. What do you guys think?

I guess they are replaceable. You rip em off, and stick some new pads on Stax style?

They're attached via adhesive and some screws. You'll have to carefully yank them off. Replacing the pads is probably just hard due to needing adhesive, but the problem isn't that. The problem is that Philips may not sell the pads...

Yea so they're not replaceable in the end. Not worth buying this headphone then. Im just gonna go with the DT 990 Pro. I thnk in terms of the sound quality , the 990 Pro is almost as good as the X1 for gaming. Plus the 990 Looks way better on your head than the X1. And the silver velour earpads from the 990 won't get dirty as easy as the black ones on the X1. Basically I hate these black velour earpads, like why can't they just make them in a different color like silver, red, or soemthing. Because black velour are very easy to attract dirt and other stuff, even with just 1 day of usage.

Silver velour pads actually stain easier. Black velour just shows the dust easier.

The 990 pro is one of the ugliest headphones I've ever owned. The X1 is beautiful.

Both are huge and look dorky worn.

The X1 is a significant leap in sound quality over the 990 Pro. Make no mistake about that. There is nothing the 990 Pro does better.

I dunno what's gonna happen in a few years, but I plan on taking care of my pads. I'll probably ask for a replacement before warranty is up.

The X1 when u put it on your head, u look like an ugly mofo. Just take a mirror and look at urself. The 990 Pro on the other hand looks cleaner. The silver velour earpads do get stain easier, but they're still look cleaner, and u can buy a new one after a year or so. The only thing that the X1 does better than the 990 is the bass, and a bit less harsh on the treble. I just can't see myself wearing the X1 and look like an ugly mofo.

I purchased the X1 based on the overall positive responses from these boards, but I sent it back the same day and went back to my 990 Pro. It had nothing to do with sound quality.  As soon as I put the X1 on I felt a difference in the comfort. The earpads just were not as comfortable for me as my 990s and they made my ears feel warm after only a few minutes.

The 990s spoil on comfort, I dont deny that. Those pads are heavenly. But you'll be stuck with them forever. If you find the X1 uncomfortable.

But what about the sound compare to your 990 Pro? If it wasn't for the comfort, would u keep the X1?
