Ooooh, that's a different story. I thought they were the K550. And yeah, Brian is a class guy who takes care of people. It's always a real pleasure to work with him.

As soon as I opened my door to leave for work, I practically tripped over this:



Keep in mind, I didn't know if they were sending these to me... and it's 11pm...

They could've easily been stolen right front my front door.

OMG, yes. It has a detachable cable. IF these are worth anything, I'll be getting the Vmoda cable and using these as my headset.

The A30s will.. have to take a backseat. Time will tell.

Even as an onear, they feel more comfy than the DNA Pro, and have more extension, so they fit my head perfectly.

This is the on-ear version of the newer DNA Pro, right? Do tell...

I actually liked the DNA from the times I tried it with my own gear at the Apple Store. They're not bad at all for the price.

Boom Pro I hope. It is a lovely cable. I am biased.

Yeah, On ear.

First song... they already blow the hell out of the A30s. The A30s sound like AM radio for me. EVS stated his rumbles... mine sound as thin as any headphone I've used, outside of the AD700 and the like.

Yeah, the Boom pro.

It depends on how well these do for gaming. As long as they hit around a 7... I'll use them.

edit: I spoke too soon. After about 30 minutes, my ears are raw... the pads are absolutely massacring my ears. Sigh...I guess I'm just not on ear material. The extent of on ear comfort is only with clip ons...

Reviewing this one is not gonna be easy on my ears...literally. A shame, as I do find the sound quality to be quite pleasing.

Yeah, I was playing my CoD: Ghosts, and explosions rumbled like those gamer chairs with built-in speakers.

I submitted my 2nd email to Astro (they wanted some additional info). Get the ball rolling.

After the 3rd cable desaster of the UE 900 cable I got a full refund. They were practically endgame but that horrible cable problem that plagues this series should be a embarassment for UE. Unacceptable for a 400 bucks product. They are discontinued anyway. 

 

I have a hard time liking those few onear headphones I recently tested (KEF M500, P7) and will opt for inears again.

Is astro going to make a new mix ampo pro? just wondering...also, whats this hissing you guys talk about that occurs with the mix amps, especially the 2012 and 2013 models>?

 

because i used my ma900s with my friends 2013 mix amp and i dont hear any hissing. Is it when raising the volume high when there is like aloading screen or something?

 

?????

 

Still wondering where is that hissing,

P7 is over ear. wink.gif

I actually really love how the P5 feels. BW really knows on ear comfort. They just need better SQ. If it were cheaper and sounded better, I would easily buy the P3. That has to be one of the best pads and comfort out of any kind of headphone.

I know, I just lumped them together for the single purpose I bought them: mobile, transportable, alternative to in-ears. ;)

 

Will be sending them back and go with the SD3.

So I have the 2013 Mixamp on its way to me from Amazon, it will go with K712 and an O2 playing a PS4. Are there still chat issues connecting the Mixamp to the PS4? I was going to connect via USB but just read about sound quality issues with chat using this method?
post #20835 of 31989

If anybody is interested in a 2013 mixamp pro, I have one for sale on head-fi at 70% of its retail with free shipping.
