And sadly, it doesn't support DTS decoding and has is not usable with consoles.

Then it's not a Recon3D successor... it's the total opposite to it...

 

It kinda looks more like a successor  for the X-fi HD? (can't tell because I don't know the specs of that thing, creative site is not loading and I'm too lazy to search for it :) ).

 

 

 

Oh and BTW about my questions regarding creative recon 3D, creative respond the following:

I got my x1 for 296usd in Hk, but only got 12 months waranty.

36 months waranty is a good deal for 330usd, considering that x1 pads is not user replaceable and questionable connector quality. The long waranty also helps higher re-sale value.

But two you might look into, the Sound Magic HP100 and the Fischer Audio FA-011.

 

Hmm okay..

 
I'm really struggling to find what I want..
 
I've read countless threads on the internet and what makes it worse is I cannot go anywhere to try before I buy, So I'm pretty much relying on other's responses to what I'm chasing..
 
I'll say it one more time just in case others missed it ..
 
I'm after a FUN headphone that will immerse me in my game play (BF3 & GTA5 atm) I want good directional positioning as well as a nice kick to the bass for when there's explosions etc.
 
I'm located in Australia so prices here are a little bit more then the US..
 
HALP MEH! :)

The Creative Sound Blaster Z (SB1500), $95, seem to be the best option, for around $100.

I'm pretty sure that aussie got many headphone stores, just google it. Headphone stores in China and hk are rare, but I can still find it and tested many headphones.
I wished i can to go aussie and order unique melody ciem. Its very troublesome to order it from here, despite the factory is in China.
Chico, how is matrix m-stage amp? I got an offer for 180usd here and considering it besides aune t1 for 100usd.

It's a good amp, better than other amps I've owned.  I don't know how it compares to the T1 though.

Aune T1 is a small tube. I never used one before, so its just my curiosity...

 

The matrix m-stage is very popular in here, and since I got a discount price, very tempted.

Some review said the Aune can drive the HD800 and sounds good too, assuming it can properly drive the akg k712 well too.

The problem is space. I don't have enough space on my table anymore, need To buy bigger table and spending more unnecessary money...

The M-stage is a fairly long amp, so I guess take that into account.

Yes.  I've noticed that as well.  How can their ears take that much volume?

 

*Person gives me a headphone then turns the volume several "o'clocks" past comfortable listening level*

Person:  So...how does this headphone sound to you?

Me:  Hmm....LOUD!!  

 

 

 

 

That's not too far off from the price difference here.

 

MA900 ~$189

K712    ~$385

 

Where is there you are?

I don't think it's been long enough yet, not been quite a month yet since that email, but I am anticipating great things. In the meantime, I am re-acquiring a Recon3D USB and I intend to compare them someday.
The fact that you aren't a native English speaker, yet you used the word "manifesting," makes you awesome in my view. smily_headphones1.gif
Among the headphones you listed, with your preferences, I would suggest either the Sony or AKG headphone. Everyone so far has been surprisingly pleased with the MA900, it gives you everything you need and is very easy to live with, but the AKG provides that extra 2% of wow that will spoil you from anything less.

 

Am I awesome? Sorry but I don't think so. I just made a lot of use of the Google Translator. :D This what I'm writing here right now is, in much of, supported by it. Even so, thanks. I'm still not understanding whether that word was suitable. Whatever. It may be because both Portuguese and English make much use of Latin words. e.g. In Portuguese, we have the verb "manifestar". I think this is a cognate. Two languages ​​and the same word. It's funny, is not it? Once again, thank you so much for your reply. :)

 

One point that makes me look more likely to the Sony than the AKG is the fact that the former is much easier to drive. Furthermore, there is the price point. Do you think it's a good idea to use the same headset for PC and console? If so, the MA900 has advantage because I intend to use it with a Sound Blaster Z series. As its amplification is enough good for the Sony but is not for AKG, and as it is not a good idea to use an external amp with SB-Z...

 

A more question: Do you or anyone know whether NFL Madden for PS3 will be avaiable for streaming for PS4?

If you ever want to borrow my T1 I could drive it up one day. Grab a bite at that BBQ place in town. I plan to bring it to the next meet, since I'll be going out of my way to make that one. A quick note, the amp is SS, the tube is only for the DAC and can only be used through USB. But for a cheap little amp (I got mine for just over $100) it can put out 1W.

Hey Envy do you know anyone who might be interested in a pair of HD595s and/or fiio e17 in the orlando area?
