The perceived increase in air was little to none and the decrease in imaging clearness was/detail retrieval was easily noticeable.

IMO, to my ears.

If the memory pads are even warmer then no way for me :/

When the K702 AE was released with the memory foam pads, a lot of comparisons between it and the Q701 (the last iteration at the time) and it was pretty clear what changes you got from them. Not discounting your perception at all. Just reiterating there was a large amount of the community who found differences in the signature from one pad to the other. I'm not debating which one is better (the angles pads, dammit!), but there was a clear difference.

His impressions are on the K612, so he's comparing the angled pads to the K612 pads (same material but thinner).

The time I spent with the angled pads wasn't long enough to critique, so you may be right. Either way, I liked the change enough to order a pair of my own :wink:

 

And you're right. If you found the angled pads to sound too warm on the K612, then the memory pads are a no no for you.

My Astro 5.8 RX unit dies out quickly using AAA batteries with a 7 year shelf-life from Costco. I'm talking around 3 hours of usage. Is this normal?

I was getting about 4hrs from an Energizer batt. I just kept it plugged in using USB.

Buy the rechargeable battery pack for the 5.8 on Ebay. problem solved. It charges through the micro usb, which is SUPER convenient.

Got that same one, and have zero issues.

I know about the battery pack butI just don't think it should be dying so quickly which leads me to believe that something is wrong. I might go ahead and order another one as a replacement. That's if I don't end up returning it and going with the new Gold Playstation 4 headset.

So the Monster DNA doesn't suck and you like it more than the X1 maybe :O...  not bad I'll never support that company :3 but I'm happy to hear they are at LEAST brining some decent souding quality to the masses

Nothing is wrong with it. The Mixamp 5.8 literally eats through batteries, hence why you'll want to get the pack. I thought I could live with recharging my eneloops while not playing, but it became quite a hassle, as the 5.8 kept dying, and the recharge rate of the eneloops was way too long (double the hassle, as you had to remove them from the Mixamp to charge them). The battery pack lasts awhile, and you can recharge as you play too. More than worth it.

As for the DNA Pro, it's not a decent sounding headphone. It's a fantastic sounding one. If they can get the next version to be comfortable, and extend more for larger heads, it'd easily be among my top faves of all time. The sound quality is that good for the price.

An Astro rep said that it's supposed to last 7 hours with batteries and 17 hours using the battery pack. I'm guessing that's BS...

I'm pretty sure they rate it in the most convenient situations, as in low volume, etc. No batteries have lasted that long for me with either the first or second 5.8. The battery pack lasts long enough for a days worth of gaming, and it charges quickly too. You're literally throwing money at the 5.8 if you use standard batteries. Buy the pack. Just do it.

You know what's REALLY cool, Office Depot. They sell Beats headphones and the take returns on anything that is with box recipt and in working condition under a week old!

 

I've gotten a few pairs of $100+ Koss headphones there before and Im fairly certain I may be able to buy and return a pair of Monster headphones as well, 

 

I hate Monster, for the image it represents BUT... if monsters becomes to headphones what Apples is to computers, I'll still hate it... but I will also respect it. I hate Apple, all their products and their entire... just everything about the company aggrivates me. BUT I do respect them, they make a solid product that is reliable and easy to use. I respect the technology and hate teh buisness :3

 

If monster can produce a good headphone, that's Fantastic for the money... I'll still hate the company... but it'll be with up most respect :3

Monster =/= Beats, just in case you didn't know. Beats is it's own thing now. Monster is a better company for it.

Agree'd but you know the company history, Monster wants Money, I respect them for making a better product for this goal and I respect them for severing ties to Beats, how ever... this is still Monster, maybe in 20-30 years they can establish some credibility as Koss and Sony has, but for now I'd rather avoid them, and support more passionate and smaller companies
