Means nothing. Whole thing sound fanboyish.

I'm an idiot. I drove this whole thing off-topic again. So...

 

I'll be having to look at a headphone setup for consoles in the very near future. Recently picked up the Grado RS325is and I've been extremely impressed. (did I mention I'm a treble whore?) Anyone throw these into a competitive gaming situation to see how they perform?

You're calling him fanboyish but he clearly games on PC, PS3, Wii, 3DS. So, he's fanboyish because Xbox is not on the list...

 

Pot calling the kettle black?

Check out Planetside 2. I love that game, but its audio is so incredible inaccurate.

BTW, Planetside 2 as an exclusive to PS4... that's a reason to be excited about that system. Doesn't matter to me as I'd rather run it on a PC, but if you're trying to be excited about PS4, it's definitely a great reason to be.
On the 360, positional audio didn't seem bad to me, but usually there was too much going on to really notice small positional hints to look out for among explosions, and in aerial maneuvers I had a hard time predicting enemy position by audio. Flybys and explosions sounded awesome though.

It was something bundled/integrated with his Alienware laptop. You can get basically the same tech in a Recon3D USB, or better yet get a sound card like the new Z-series soundblasters if you're using a desktop.

Umm, I think you misused that statement. It would make sense if I didn't use all of those systems, plus others, but I do. Let's calm down on the personal attacks today.

I agree... 100%

 

But you did attack the man by calling him fanboyish. I realize you get a little defensive when people critisize your likings.

 

In other news, my Mad Dogs arrive tomorrow.

Enjoy! Smell those delicious pads until you pass out, it will fade soon enough.

Maybe its just that I have yet to find the appeal in online multiplayer, then. I'm mostly a single player only gamer, and when I do play multiplayer, I like it to be LAN based with friends. I also don't care about FPS games nearly as much as the average gamer, opting for RPGs instead. I also absolutely hate DRM whether it affects my schedule or not. I will go out of my way to protest against things like that. So seeing as the Xbox One does all the the game types more effectively then the PS4 that I don't actually care about, and it has DRM that, granted, wouldn't affect me but still angers me, I don't really have a reason to get it.

I really hope they compliment my X1.

+1. The smell of the fresh lamb leather is heavenly. My wife still teases me because for about 2 weeks I would just randomly smell them when sitting at the desk. And yes, sadly that smell is gone, but I've had them for a fair amount of time too.

MLE said a couple pages back that they're a great compliment to anything open. I have to agree based on my experience. My MDs and Q701s are an incredible combination, but I have yet to hear the prestigious X1.

I relly hope so. The only reason I have my doubts is because the mids on the X1 aren't as lush as the AKGs.

 

SN: Glad I pre ordered my PS4 last night. Amazon is currently delaying shipping on "standard editions."

Didn't even know there were different editions. I ordered it as soon as it was available...

So, I ended up cancelling the Kingsound stats, since my headpjone gaming habits aren't like before and I rather not spend so much on one setup. I already have a dac and amp, so spending 800 extra dollars was just... reaching. Using the funds for the PS4.

Just checked my Amazon, and it says I ordered the Standard edition. Booooo...

Though it also says they are identical. Probably just means launch edition gets it at launch and standard isn't guaranteed on launch day.
