The information is available all throughout this thread now. You just gotta know where to look. ;) I'm sneaky like that. Forum ninja.

Oh.  Interesting.

Yes, very interesting...

Though I'm a bit hesitant to try it. Not good for my wallet :/

I understand that feeling. I would stay away from electrostats if I were you, otherwise you may be temped to venture into the expensive world that is STAX.

You're telling me, and I'm the one that bought them :p Definitely not good for the wallet. Hopefully good for the ears.

The latter unfortunately still has audio issues but due to being a Sony title it has better samples than most games and when the audio mixing works (usually well done by Sony 1st party and in this case it is often really good but akwardly dies off or cuts off (not signal-wise but within the mixing process) the Fostex proves to be my most immersive can. Thanks to low distortion, fast decay and very good soundstage it's a ******* good experience. Don't worry about the bass woofering your ears. It's really "quick" (decay) and very detailed.  

 

HD 800 is another reference for gaming but forget it with the Mixamp, only use it with the PC or a better signal than the Mixamp. This is why I appreciate more headphones that are higher up but still sensitive enough to run good from mobile and transportable devices. Very few TOTL can do it. TH-900 can. Use them on your receiver, smartphone, Mixamp, create a transportable setup. Not easy to do with the HD 800. My future will be with cans that are more flexible. I'm done with hard to amp stuff that glues me on my desk (yes, I could use long cables throughout the room, but really?). 

 

K812 is another good option with very good separation, imaging/soundstage and balance (albeit being on the sharper side) and its ability to also shine from low powered devices actually saves it a bit in its competing range (still too expensive imo).

 

I agree.

 

I had a brief experience with the TH-900 on The Last of Us, it was just absolutely chilling... in a good sense. That hotel basement level was just fantastic. Never heard anything like it.

I'll be sending to you, first, since you're right next door and it will cost me less. These deserve some recognition among the favorites, here... and it pretty much will not happen until you review it...

 

As far as the tour goes... I wanted no more than five people that I am familiar with. So here is who I came up with...

 

MLE

Chico

Evs

Axel (if you're interested)

Nameless

 

I'll be sending them with both sets of pads (stock and angled).

Can you, if you want it yourself ofcourse, also let MLE review the Shure 1540's?

HE-6 worked pretty well with DH for me as long as a hefty, powerful amp was added of course :D

The bass might have been a bit too tight for full immersion, but I still loved it,

post #21596 of 31536
If I got the 6 then I would get the combo available to me with the ef6 for 1800. The air and imaging is what made me curious about it with gaming. It was the first headphone I'd heard with that much out of head height and width. It was freaky

So... It would kinda be like emotional good rather than logically good, like a triple decker hamburger with cheese, mayonnaise, and 6 strips of bacon, topped with a low calorie bun, then dipped in chocolate and deep fried.

Don't think I'd agree with chocolate on a burger, it would completely mask the taste of that wonderful, succulent beef. I'm not much of a sauce person either. Prime burgers should be served with light sauce if any to allow all the flavors of the toppings to shine through and merge into one mouth watering palate quencher.

 

I think the worst sandwich that I eat health-wise is the Elvis: creamy peanut butter, sweet banana slices and thick cut fatty bacon on your choice of bread. It's definitely emotionally good but terrible for my diet. Sometimes emotion just trumps logic and there's no harm in giving in a little.

Does anybody here have any experience with the Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones?

So tell me how I was playing with the DNA PRO today doing well in Ghosts, as usual. So I got tired of it, and switched to the A30s... and played with them for a good 4-5 hours.

No lie, today is the first day ever in Ghosts where I was consistently getting more deaths than kills. Like... BADLY. I know myself, and I know I'm pretty good at this game. Well, believe me when I tell you, I thought I was plahing in stereo most of the time. It was so hard to gauge where enemies were coming from with the A30s. Also, my friend was telling me that the inline mic sounded better than the boom mic that it comes with. WTF.

So...yeah... I got used to the A30s for tv shows in stereo... and that's it. It was...not good for gaming for me, and I'm being kind. At one point I had almost 20 deaths. Considering I almost NEVER go into double digits, getting almost 20 was a sign that the A30s were really messing up my game.

I'm disappointed. I went back to the DNA on ear, and went back to destroying people. This sounds like hyperbole, but it isn't. The A30s just did not work for me.
