Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (5/31/2015: Beyer COP+ and Shure 1540 added) - Page 1669

post #25021 of 31250

Hello there,

I've started one thread and redirected here.

Here is my question :

I'm more of a gamer and music fan.

I've a creative ZXR sbx card and wanna use it for gaming and music.

I don't own any amp or dac or whatsoever.

for the past years I've been using gaming headset with virtual surround sound but now I wanna use sound card and audiophile headphone.

Here is my priorities :

1- large and big sound stage

2- I'm not bass head but like bass more than treable because very highs pierce my head

3- I've had big head and prefer big cups

4- I like closed back more than open but sound stage is very very more than important to me

These are my options :

First if you think there is another pair please don't hesitate to tell me.

1- HD 800

2- HD 700

3- HD 650

4- DT 990 600 ohm

5- DT 990 250 ohm

6- K701

7- K712

8- Denon 7000

9- Denon 7100

10- T1

11- T90

12- Razer Kraken Forged

And one another question :

I wanna use creative surround sound but is there any headphone amp or dac that I can connect to ZXR and benefit its sbx system without any distortion?

Because I've heard that I can't use PC virtual surround sound with dacs.

Thanks in advance for your time and help

Alpha,
This thread is about surround gaming with consoles, so generally we don't know much about PC sound cards...
That said, read the headphone reviews in the first post, that should give you some idea about many headphones (and several on your list).
Also, Creative sound cards do support sending SBX headphone surround processing out through optical (so you could connect an optical DAC), if you want to do that you might as well get the cheaper (and smaller, for better airflow in your desktop tower) soundblaster Z.

Your headphone list is all over the map, with price from ~$200 to $1500, and totally different sound signatures. I wouldn't dare make a suggestion for you, instead I'd recommend reading the many reviews on this site and picking a headphone with characteristics that seem appealing to you.

As a new PS4 owner I am pretty overwhelmed... After reading all the fluff and negativity on the next generation consoles being just low end PCs and the jump being rather small... I must say I disagree! The jump from PS3 is rather drastic IMO.
Everything just works. It's fast there's multitasking, game lead fast and look and run great...
So much is happening I feel like that kido first time in a supermarket again biggrin.gif

All those games on the Now Beta, and not one is free so we can TEST the damn thing. Like 5 dollars for a 4 HOUR rental? You've gotta be ****ing kidding me. I know it's a Beta, and yet, they should have at least ONE game to test out. But no, they immediately try to get you to fork over money.

No trial, no interest.

The whole thing has been a gimmick since its announcement. Only having the option to rent is a freakin rip off, if you ask me. I hope it fails so they will then have no choice but to sell the damn games... with the option to download.

I had to setup a fake us account for it to work and then connect through a proxy. All the hassle to check if it works. It doesn't. so much time wasted.

 

Also the siberias v2 earcups look pretty much the same size as Fidelio X1 earcups so try with x1 drivers. @Mad Lust Envy

I think it's not a bad idea for single player games you play through and then sell.  Watch Dogs would be great... $15 for a month, beat it, never think of it again.  It's a better deal than buying it new and then selling it to Gamestop a month later.

 

Then again, if Sony would just make it a subscription-based service like Netflix, they will OWN this gen.

I am sure now that they have the foundation laid out, they can tweak the subscription model instead of making it an overpriced rental service...
The way it seems to me now is that it indeed is a bit of a ripoff especially value wise.

I agree if they do them for less than what it is to buy the game and trade it in it will be a good idea, i traded in watchdogs and infamous second son after i completed them both in a week..we probably won't end up with top titles like the ps3 had on ps+ because of this playstation now!

Greetings,

I went through the first page (reviews) and the last 15 pages of this thread and have a question regarding headset recommendation for the PS4. I am making a small gaming room where I will use the headset exclusively for sound and online chat during long Destiny (and other games) gaming binges.

I have a set of Sony gold headsets that my wife will be using when we play Destiny together and they sound ok (not great compared to my 5.1 Denon/PSB setup in the living room). I've read the reviews of the PLYR1 and they seem to be the top recommended all in one headset for the PS4. I've also considered the SteelSeries H headset due to their reviews. I'm leaning toward wireless, but can be persuaded to go wired if I can get better sound for less money My budget is $300.

Can I get a recommendation from y'all on a PS4 headset setup in my price range?

post #25034 of 31250

So guys.. Im upgrading from Sennheiser pc 360. Will there be a *big* upgrade if i buy one of these 3 ?  AKG k702 or the q model,  or akg k712?
I will be using the Creative soundblaster Z Or ZxR. Haven't decided 100% yet.

PLYR1 is pretty solid for an all-in-one wireless solution.  I had one for a bit, but ended up returning it.  See, I also had purchased a Recon3D and a Q701 and the AKG just blows the Skullcandy away.  They're like in a different tier.

 

With a $300 budget, if you can swing wired, I highly recommend just getting a Mixamp or Recon and something like a K612 and a cheap clip-on mic.  You can also troll eBay for a cheap wireless Mixamp 5.8.  I got mine for $40 shipped!  That's a great budget and you should be able to find plenty of solid solutions.
