I guess I'll wait to for the 400s's... Tyell seemed pretty jazzed with them. So they have to be pretty impressive. I'm excited to hear the difference of dynamic/planar.

I'll have to see what's going on the day of the meet. That would be pretty cool.

Quoting MLE for emphasis. Going planar or electrostat could end up changing your perspective on headphones completely. I try dynamic headphones occasionally and I seem to find myself always going back home to planars after a short vacation. There's a quality about them that draws me in and doesn't let go. And I do recommend checking out an electrostat set if you can as well.

@lenroot77
 - There's a Chicago meet in August where you can demo some of them (and hang out with me, hey!) without going out and spending a ton of money up front. You really should check it out, it's a ton of fun. Shame you weren't at the one we had in June.
I'll be there too @lenroot77, if you end up going and want to try any of the stuff that I have, just ask and I'll bring it!
@AxelCloris, maybe we should put our heads together and figure out how to do a headphone gaming demo station at the meet. I think people would really dig that. I have a few ideas that might work.

The only problem with planars is that they don't do soundstaging as well as dynamics. They hit a sort of invisble wall, so thebsound ends up being a little more intimate, even amongst airy planars like the HE4. The Alpha Dog is the one exception that I experienced. That soundstage was impressive even if it was closed.

Truth. You definitely trade some soundstage size for bottomless bass and liquid effortlessness. Good thing is, the imaging tends to stay pretty sharp. I found my reaction time to be very quick with the HE500 and the soundstage was pretty good too. The biggest drawback for gaming was the sheer weight of the headphone. If you sit up straight, it's not a big deal, but I tend to lean over a bit, and that can get a little hard on the neck.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the HE-560, HE-6 and the Ether, though I spent only a short time with them, seem to defy all of my preconceptions about the planar soundstage. They were all quite spacious.

Hello everyone, a first timer here. Nice to meet everyone of you.

 

Where do I look for using a ATH-M50 and AT2020 USB to xbox one & ps4?

 

Hi guys, any help on this?

 

I plan to use it for PC gaming plus on consoles.

The HE1000 is the first planar I've heard to really break through that barrier. It's the single most out-of-my-head planar that I've heard. My Ether's soundstage won't be as big as the HE1000 (or certain specific dynamics) but it's still a very nice size and a solid win for me in almost every other category.

I'm not sure what You were trying to ask in Your previous post. What exactly do You want to achieve?

Guys if and when I decide to update, prepare for a change to a 5 star system for ratings.

5 = Amazing
4 = Great
3 = Good with flaws
2= Mediocre, Below Average
1= Avoid, Terrible

There wont be any half stars, or half ratings. It also does NOT translate to 3 stars = 6/10. A 6 was okay before. 3 stars is GOOD now.

That is all. Any complaints, is...too bad. Im tired of people focusing on micro scores, so they will no longer exist after the update.

Yay!

Might I suggest the star ratings equate to
5-Stars = Godlike
4 = Elite
3 = Positive K/D
2 = LOL teammate
1 = Woopsie!!

You know, just so gamers can understand wink.gif

5 - Learn how to play without cheats

4 - How the hell did he do that? He must be cheating

3 - This guy is suspiciously good, probably a cheater

2 - Lol what a noob

1 - You might as well go mute

LOL!
I love Skyward Sword's graphic style, I'd like to play it but I won't buy a Wii for 2-3 games total.

Suddenly thirsty.
