The X1 sounds like a perfect fit then. I highly doubt you'll be disappointed.
post #17477 of 31249

Great, thanks for your help.

 

Also, I read in the first page that the cable is bad? Is that still an issue and if so what do I need to fix it?

But he's coming from the TB x12, known to best even the SR-009 in every possible category!


(Kidding Saul, you'll love the X1)

Not that it's bad per se. The X1 will still sound great with it, but bad in terms of resistance and it somewhat limits the potential of the X1 overall. You can easily just buy almost ANY 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable, and it will more than likely be better than the stock cable. Something as cheap and sturdy as the Monoprice cables, or Mediabridge cables sold on Amazon will be an improvement, however subtle. they're like less than $10 overall. You can go to any store and buy an mp3 cable, and it will more than likely be better.

What product has Jude talked about that doesn't receive hype. :tongue_smile:

Thing is, Audeze was the same way, as was the Abyss planar. Upstarts which got a lot of hype, and ended up proving their worth. Oppo is not a new company and knows their stuff. I, frankly would believe in them more than the others.

Haha ok ethan :P

 

And thanks MLE, I'll buy one of those. Thanks for all your help.

Seems good.

They don't mention the cable's impedance but... Should be fine, I guess...

I dunno, it looks a bit too fat to sit right on the X1's cable jack. Try and get one with a piece that sits between the barrel and where the actual piece that goes inside the jack...

See?

When I get a desktop PC I was wondering when I should get a sound card, if I get one now my budget would be around $50 I think.

I would use the HD 558's with it and I would play mostly single player games like RPG's and some multyplayer FPS games on the side.

post #17486 of 31249

Most onboard sound cards are pretty bad. One of the best decisions I made when I started getting into headphones, was buying an Asus xonar stx.

 

You dont need to spend that much, but there are some really good options around $50.

See?

Yeah I see, it's just they're not available on the UK amazon. I can't find any others with the design you said they needed for my country :/

Can you give me a few name's? I checked the Asus xonar stx and it's too steep for my blood sadly.

Xonar DG or DGX. You could also pick up a used X-fi Titanium.

DX if possible, I found the DGX to sound very dull.
