Nothing. When I was having that problem when I couldn't log in to either my HF or AVS accounts on my old comp (probably a hack or virus), I sent them an email asking for them to change my password so I could use it again. They said nothing was wrong and wouldn't give me my account. So I made a new accounta and they banned it immediately. Now we'll see how long RC lasts...

You'd think they'd have better things to do then swing banhammers around.  Its a freaking AV forum.  No one cares.

Right? They could check my IP and see I'm trying to log in from the same frigging address. Head-fi personnel fixed my problem REALLY quickly. Sigh...

Want me to go rough em up a bit?

post #1131 of 26623

Would you care to give your HE-4's a spin to test how they handle Dolby Headphone?  Admittedly this is primarily out of curiosity, because I know you either need to double amp or use a Xonar STX > line out > beefy amp to pull this off.  

 

A read an assertion on one of the earlier pages that angled drivers don't work well with HRTF, this seems unlikely to me considering that the much lauded AD700 and the HD5x5/5x8 series headphones are all like this.  This might apply to S-Logic, though, considering that S-Logic just places the driver off center rather than angling it (right?).

I think he did, and reported they were pretty good.

Just won a pair of pc 360s on eBay for £72.00 :-)

Just wondering I know they work great straight through the mixamp but do they sound better amped?

Are they a solid headset that last if they are looked after?

They are great and mixamp is enough

So, I saw this and thought it looked pretty interesting.

 

Anyone around here try the W1000X with gaming?

Sorry, I'm having trouble with quoting. I currently have the W1000X's and have tried them with gaming but I haven't done any in depth analysis as of yet. I'm a little busy at the moment but I think I can manage a good listen sometime in the next week or so if you're interested. I can't guarantee that I'll remember or have the time though so just shoot me a pm if I forget. I also have the LCD-2s, AD2000s, and K701s if you're interested in some comparisons.

post #1137 of 26623

Just thought I'd report back after using the setup for a while (Mixamp 5.8 + DT990 Pro + Speedlink Clip-on mic)

 

Absolutely amazing, no complaints from my end, has seen my kills go up about 5-6 per game, I can easily hit about 30 now :)

Only slight complaint would be in the mic department, apparently I am clear, but it sounds like I'm in a toilet!

I'm actually not all that interested since I rarely play FPS any more, but I though I'd bring it up in case someone else around here who does was interested.

 

I would be interested in how they do with movies via DH or other HRTFs which is usually something that's good with gaming and has bass too.  If you don't watch movies and stuff that way then don't bother for my sake.  I'm likely to pick one up sometime in the future any way.

How do the AD700s compare with the DJ100s for music?  Which do you like better?  How does the bass compare?

 

I have the DJ100s and love them, but they're not very comfortable. Since the AD700s are just a few bucks more I thought I might try them.

post #1140 of 26623

If you find the DJ100 uncomfortable you can replace the pads with some cheap MDR-V6 pads. That's what I've done and I haven't found that it alters the sound much, if at all.

AD700 definitely has much less bass than the DJ100. The DJ100 is one step under being bass heavy when amped well IMO. Both headphones are just totally different. The only advantage the AD700 has is more treble and a larger soundstage, but the mids are just not the same. AD700 has slightly recessed mids, but it's not a problem for some.

 

DJ100 is strangely quite good for a closed gaming headphone.

 

Personally I hate the AD700 for music. It has this weird tonality at times. Sometimes it's very good and other times not so good. I think out of the dozens of headphones I've tried only two haven't had enough bass for me. RE0 IEM and the AD700.

 

EDIT: BTW I'm heard some people stuffing things into the DJ100 pads to keep them from touching your ears so much (if that's the problem). They need a good seal for the best bass.
