Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 10/15/2014: Beyerdynamic T51i Added) - Page 1499

If you take what I say to heart, then you certainly won't ever like me. I'm blunt spoken, but I don't mean it in a condescending way. Just relax, it ain't that serious. I'm not that serious either. frown.gif

I'm not grumpy (ACTUALLY PRETTY HAPPY ATM, YAYAYAY), just, I don't like to act like I'm something I'm not. Sorry if I'm not all sugar and rainbows. The internet is way too sarcastic and mean for people to ever take things personally. Think I have time to keep up with people who don't like me? I genuinely can't be arsed. If we get along, awesome. If we don't, well... too bad for both me and the other person who has a disagreement with me.

Just, when you answer the same questions over and over, and get the same questions asked in messages and the forum yet again, it gets incredibly tiresome. Nothing aginst you PERSONALLY. I just wish people would read the guide first before ever asking ONE question. Chances are, it will be answered there. Unless it's about an item that ISN'T on the guide. If it's not on the guide, I can't make a general opinion of it, despite the many, many times I get asked if headset A is better than headphone X when I clearly don't have them on the guide, therefore I don't have enough experience with.

I should add yet another thing in big bold letters:

IF YOU HAVE A QUESTION, PLEASE READ THE GUIDE FIRST, THE ANSWER MAY BE THERE. READ IT FIRST, THEN ASK.

I completely understand. I'm the kind of person who double checks stuff to the point it frustrates people I know in the flesh. I just wanted to be sure I had my facts straight, leaving no room for interpretation.

 

Again sorry :)

Where's this guide you speak of? :D

 

Sorry, couldn't resist :o

Considering it likes to disappear completely when I add a new review and/or edit, it's not too farfetched to not see it at times. :/

How would you compare the ATH-M50 to the Sennheiser HE90?

post #22476 of 27137
Thread Starter 
The HE90 is only like 15% better (I tested this based on reviews) and the M50 seems to have a close enough frequency graph, that I feel I get most of the detail of what i would get with the the HE90. The HE90 also leaks so much I can't use my clip on mic when using the HE90. Also, it probanly needs a little more out of my Mixamp, so I have to attach an O2 to bring it up to par. Since the O2 is neutral, it doesnt really add much to the tonally boring HE90.The M50 works without any additional amping and has just enough bass emphasis for my preference.

I also like tbe detachable 3.5mm cable on the M50x, so I might be able to use my Boompro. I'm stuck with my DX mic with the HE90, since the cable is proprietary. Ah well...

Its much too cumbersome. I'd take the M50 9 times out of 10.

I now have a game plan. PC 360's, Mixamp and if I decide in future I need more power I'll get the EHP-02 (or something similar).

 

Was going to order the headset and Mixamp tonight, but the Mixamp is currently out of stock.

 

This will give me the opportunity to learn a little more about amps and what is available should I want to add one down the line.

With how good the HS-15 has been to me, especially comfort, I can only imagine the semi-open model will fit me even better. This, alongside my soundbar purchase will keep me more than busy enough in terms of audio for a good long while.

It was only a matter of time. I've been using mine just about every day since '08 and only stopped because I ran the pads down raw. Bought new pads a couple months ago and I couldn't be happier to use them again. Now I have enough spare pads to last me another 15 years lol.

post #22479 of 27137

I just wanted to add to the topic that was discussed earlier about new people and their questions. This was my first post ever on this site... after 3-4 months of being a "lurker."

After purchasing and returning many setups, I finally found my match... thanks to you. I am new to all of this... so my ears feel like I'm in heaven whenever I game or watch movies. I ended up with this setup...

PS3 > Recon3D > Matrix M-Stage (2012 version) > Q701s (with annie pads). I am now damn near broke... but still... thank you, again! dt880smile.png

 

I was once a noob, just as blind as the rest... and can't count how many "duh" moments I've had, since then...

 

If one can read, however, and are willing to read, the guide is pretty easy to follow and comprehend. It can be done, people, all you have to do is read it...

 

If you don't take the time to read it... well... don't get your feelings when the following happens:

  • No one responds
  • No one responds
  • No one responds
  • Someone says "read the guide" in a not so friendly manner
  • No one responds

 

Okay... rant over... :cool:

Cal, the pads are glued on, amirite? That's what I'm gathering with the HS-15.

Hmm... I'm wondering if I should try my hand on putting the HS-15's pads on my DNA on Ear. I *think* the dimensions are similar. The DNA On Ear with some HS-15 pads would be HEAVEN if it retained most of it's sound.

I'm convinced that the HS-15's pads are my fave pads out of all pads ever worn....wait... maybe the B&W P3 just may be a smidge better but that headphone is...meh for too much money.

I wonder how Grado comfies compare to the 15's pads.

Yeah, there's just a ring of glue under the wax paper. Grado pads are thicker but they do clamp, it's not harsh but def noticeable. I can't really compare the pads on the SR60 that I have because they look like they've gotten a lot of sun.

post #22482 of 27137

Man, every time I put on my 1540 w/Alpha pads I remember why I'm so crazy about 'em. It is literally my favorite headphone of all time. Going on six months strong... the longest period I've spent with any headphone, thus far...

When you guys are putting your headphones through their paces for music use, do you have go to albums? Obviously people will have their own choices but I'd love to hear some examples :)

 

I think I've just found one of mine (I've heard the album plenty of times but never through headphones).

post #22484 of 27137

Jazz is my go to genre when analyzing headphones... and my go to album is Kind of Blue...

 

Reggae for when I want to get a better feel of a headphone's lower frequencies... and that go to album is Legend...

I can understand why jazz would be a good genre. I actually quite like some jazz but have never actually bought any albums (wasn't really sure where to start, if that makes sense).

 

The album I have decided is a go to for me is Ocean Colour Scene, Mosley Shoals. It seems to test a lot of different aspects of the headphones. Really brings them to life.
