Can't wait to play BF4 with this set....want to listen the so called huge soundstage. :D

I'd suggest you look into a different mic. Those Zalman mics have poor quality control IMO and they only sound ok at best. MLE recently updated the front page with some mic options, so check it out. Even those cheap Neewer packs are better than the Zalman. I have a Labtec LVA-7330 and I have no complaints.

After initial success, the problem persists.  It is hit and miss with docking the e17 to the e09k and getting continual functionality.  Too inconsistent so will probably end up returning the e09k.  

 

On a positive note, I love the 990s that I got.  Any suggestions on a good closed back pair?  The quality of a good pair of headphones really amazed me and going from my 990s at home to normal cheap earbuds (which before now I thought sounded fine) was very saddening and I don't want to keep doing it!  So I guess maybe a pair that sounds similar to the 990s if that is possible?

According to the Antlion Modmic blog, all models are in stock at a moment, so if you wanted to order one and have it ship out without having to wait, now would be the time.

What's up guys. New to the thread. I game on ps4. I'm looking to upgrade my k701 to either hd800 or k812. I currently use headzone h1. Will the h1 be enough to power the hd800 ?

The Headzone has a very high output impedance and the power specs aren't that impressive. I suggest attaching a good desktop amp to it. I'm jealous that you own one. I owned it briefly and loved it's dsp.

MLE - perhaps stick chico's FAQ at the top and near your introductions? It's a damned good guide, but I bet most visitors will miss it stuck way down there. Just a wee suggestion :smile:

The guide has a structure:

Intro
Headphones
Amps
Mics
Misc/FAQ/Notes/Etc

It just makes sense to me this way, as we're getting what this guide is about first.

If they don't bother to read the lists, which tells them where the FAQ is... well, they need to learn to read, and stop skimming.


Nevermind, I overestimate the intelligence of the mass population.

The FAQ has been moved to be the first section after the intro and index.

You could also steal some common answers to questions from this page:

Always assume that the masses don't read books. Forgive the suggestion - best to get the FAQ out of the way so as to prep minds. That's how Lenin did it.

Aria, from Feenix. A new $350 head...phone, or set (since it comes with a lapel mic). I'm liking the wood design - http://www.feenixcollection.com/aria.html

Gaming and movies...on PC or on a console?  What's your current setup/source?  The CALs aren't hard to drive, so you either have a weak source or something is off.

 

The CALs are already bass-heavy, and an amp won't really increase the bass.

 

hi

 

on a PC.

 

im using onboard audio.

 

im using this motheboard.

I think that onboard audio should be enough to give the CALs decent volume, so unless you listen insanely loud I'd be inclined to say that something might be off (windows volume/game volume/media player volume/etc.) 

 

Is the audio from the CALs soft on other sources besides your PC, or is ONLY your PC soft?

Change, I was gone for a while late last year, but did you ever try out the 940? My impressions still hold true with that one.

Sorry I've been gone.

Nah, I ended up with the 840 because the 940 didn't seem like what I was wanting in a closed headphone. I heard the 1540 pads turn the 940 into some beasts, tho.

Axel, how do you fair gaming wise with your 1964 Q? After reading someone's inquiry on IEMs, I tried my SM64 and was very impressed. I'll be using them for gaming, now, until I get my K612 back.
