Amazon has the KSC75 for $9.99 today. Had to reacquire it.

So if anyone has been ever interested in trying them... now is the time.

Unless you're in some tournament setting, I would just leave the mixamp Pro on standard or something.

 

Thanks, will buy the Fidelio X1's then since they are that good even without the pro mode setting and look more sturdy. I only got one problem with the cable. The one you listed doesnt excist here and i dont know really what to look for since they dont write what ohm the cables have. And i dont want to import.

I use Pro Mode on my X1 when playing Tomb Raider because I hit this button a lot that does a really bassy sound (instinct button) and it gets a bit tiresome.

Wow, as if on cue... an hour after hitting the buy button on the KSC75, my modded PX100-II shorted out on the right side... talk about timing. rolleyes.gif

I have no idea.  I was advised to get a different one as well despite the fact I probably would have found absolutely sod all difference between the original and the one I got (Fisual S-Flex)

@Mad Lust Envy, I can confirm that the M-Audio Q40 works fully with the V-Moda BoomPro. My only (small) gripe is that at times the mic is just a little -too- sensitive in terms of picking up background noise and that's without any boost options being enabled.

As much as I like the bass of the X1's, I still prefer my Annies over them. Both in comfort and overall sound. The bass on the Annies isn't exactly weak either, it just doesn't hit as hard as the X1's do.

 

It would be nice if there was a way to get a microphone similar to how the vmoda is for any AKG headphone really. I know AKG makes microphones that will fit the connector but they are like 300+ dollars for them, that's just way to expensive for a mic hah.

I dislike 3D movies very much. You might enjoy these 2D glasses like I do. Great for when your friends all want to see 3D and you'd rather be able to focus on the whole picture rather than where the studio wants you to focus. They make a separate pair for IMAX and RealD, so you might end up having two pair if your friends are like mine and adore 3D.

I would love to see this with an inline mic much how they do with the Porta Pro. Would pay the premium for them.

Well, after a full night of BF4 with my new XBA-H3, I must say I was VERY impressed! The most impressed I've been with an IEM when gaming, I tell ya! I was able to locate positional cues with ease, and the impact on the lower end was very engaging. Did I mention these have a wise soundstage for an IEM? Not wide like a full sized headphone... but definitely wide for an IEM... extremely wide for one.

 

Also, the in-line mic cable that was included works with both the DS4 controller and the mixamp. I was told this was the clearest I've ever sounded, so the in-line mic is top notch. Since my mixamp is too far from where I sit, however, I was stuck using the DS4 controller as my source for most of the night...

 

I was so impressed, that I may just have to invest in a wireless 5.8 mixamp just so I can use my XBA-H3s with the mic cable more often for gaming. If anyone is willing to sell one, holla atcha boi!

 

As far as headphones and IEMs go, this may just be end game for me. Yes, I said it!

I'm no wealthy man (I'm actually in school and have a regular job). I just know how to manage my money and priorities... which in result gives me room to play in this hobby.
