K612 for gaming is tops.
Tested them thoroughly and they beat the MA900 for me.
The imaging with the Ks is sublime and they provide a more focused experience imo.
I found the extra air the MA 900 provides to be slightly distracting and the imaging to be a bit indistinct sometimes...
The X1 to me does surprisingly well here too.

The good is that the MA don't require extra amping, apart from the AKGs.

Also, I was a big closed headphone supporter but for gaming it's a no contest... They sound way too canned and congested ;/

I need closed headphones as im in a room with other people and t.v and that is why I have problems with the pc360

just for my layman knowledge, what would the difference in terms of surround, soundstage and pinpointing be between these 2 configs:

 

1.- Just the Senn HD 598 from a powered source (for example, I guess a PC would do)

 

2.- The Senn HD 598 + DSS1 from the PS4, assuming the DSS1 performs as an amplifier and as a DH 7.1 surround (did I well understand?)

 

I mean, would the Senn by itself have a decent "surround"? If so, what does the 7.1 DSS1 add? Does it turn 2 channels into 7 virtual ones (+subwoofer), then improving surround in what what terms? Or what is the "gain" I will have thanks to the DSS1?

 

And another doubt: do you think moving from a Senn RS 160 to a Senn HD 598(+DSS1) is quality worth it?

 

Thks

Thks,

 

I finally got a dss version 1, but is it all the same in terms of audio quality the SoundBlaster Recon3D? Does the Recon3D handle both audio+chat? Would you recommend one over the other?

 

Thks

I personally found the K550 dull and lifeless on their own with music, so I wouldn't expect them to be any fun for gaming. That said there are others who absolutely love them. I am not among those people.

I can't speak to the sonic differences, but the Recon3D can definitely handle chat.

Not sure how good their isolation is, but soundmagic HP100 are closed and have decent soundstage FWIR.

Before i got an AD700 i had an PC350 and the isolation is for a closed Headset really bad. You will hear most things out their, just at a bit lower Volume.

any thoughts on the

a700

akg 550

post #20204 of 28669

The A700 and K550 have both been discussed at length throughout the thread. I'd recommend using the search option when you have a few minutes to read through everything that's been said about both of them.

As Chico mentioned, try the HP100 from soundmagic.
