I reduced the size of the list, and kept basically what I felt was the cream of the crop. The X1 is still on both tbe fun and all rounder list. For competitive,I put I what I felt was truly on the top. The X1 is great, not amazing for competitive gaming. Just because a headphone is not on one of those list does not make them less viable. It's just a quick reference for those looking for just straight out competitive use. The X1's bass is a bit too prominent and one note-ish, and a little distracting at times.

Mad, I must thank you for giving me a chance to hear these MA900s. After a full day and night of watching movies, playing some BF3, and listening to a couple tracks... I now see why you covet these so much. They do everything so well and at times feel like nothing is on your head.

 

Personally, I think these are more to my liking than the X1 was. I like how its bass doesn't have a negative effect on competitive games... especially those such as BF3 in which you are constantly hearing explosions and chaos from all the vehicles involved. That was something the X1 was too overpowering on... making it impossible sometimes to key in on my immediate surroundings.

Thanks, Mad. 

 
 

What I'd likegreat for gaminglow leak out, great for moviesgood for music and amazing comfort. 

 
 

So can I say AKG 712 PRO is the way to go for me? 

 
 

I'm  among HE-400, MA900, X1 and K712 PRO (since K702 65th Annie is discontinued).

 
 

For gaming, I want to hear pinpointsto have good sound stage and positional audio (am a FPS lover), but I lay down a little of that for better comfortleak out, movie performance and music listening.

I love how people ask for EVERYTHING in a headphone. Lol.

You can't have it all. Always trade offs. Ask yourself what's most important.

Since you want low leak, you better stop looking into open headphones. Since you can't look at open headphones, this means you get the reduced performance of closed headphones, etc.

Unless you have someone in the same room, most open headphones don't leak out to the point of bothering someone in another room. But noise leak out is always gonna happen with open headphones.

As for what you want, that's why i made the all rounder list. Look into those, as far as my own recommendations. The Annie is still sold today. K712 is gonna be a slightly different take on the same sound, and then you have the MA900, X1 as other all rounders.

You'd be surprised at how many private messages I get asking about gaming headphones (even when I specifically state not to message me about it). They always ask the same things:

"What can you recommend for a gaming headphone that has good bass, good mids, good treble, big soundstage, good positioning, comfort, easy to drive, not so expensive"


Gee... so you want EVERYTHING?

Once in a while, I'll have someone ask me at least something feasible, like good balance, without overpowering bass, slightly smooth, etc.

I know it.

 

You told AKG K702 65th Annie has a good leak out for a open headphone.

 

The priority is even positional gaming. So, by elimination, open headphone are the right choice.

 

Excuse for I 'm not manifesting me so well, but I don't know speak English.

 

I hope you had understood my asking. In other word, among those headphones I've listed, what's your recommendation for me?

Go for the K712 Pro, unless you need a LOT of noise leak control.

Thank you very much, Mad.

 

Actually, leak out is a my minor concern. I just need a pair of headphone that doesn't leak so much that it does the sound goes through the door of my room.

 

That said, is your recommendation kept?

BF3 TDM is a bit overwhelming with the X1's. Definitely. It's a thought like this that is making look at getting a third headphone. But, I do love the feeling that I am actually there--or in a movie. Yippee ki yay!

No open headphone is gonna bother someone not in the same room with the door closed. Unless you have it loud enough to cause ear damage, most won't even bother if the door is open.

Open headphone leak is over exaggerated anyways. Depending on how loud you listen, you may not even bother someone in the same room. I've used all of my open headphones even with people around, and no one complains.

Yes. The K712/Annie would be my best recommendation as the true all rounders, if you can afford them and have a good form of amping. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with the MA900, though the MA900 leaks out more than any other headphone I've tried that isn't Planar magnetic/stat.
