Lmao. He's not being irrational or grumpy. Just like he said, people seem to just skip the front page. Or if they don't they skim over it. I've found that people on these forums have the same nature and that is they tend to read, digest and then instead of going back over what they read to fill the gaps, they get lazy and ask questions. I understand some people have bad reading comprehension but just take your time and go back over it. And the best part is that if you're absolutely horrible at reading THERES A NUMBER RATING SYSTEM. There's not much that he can answer that's not on that page.

I assume this is reference to yesterday. As I have explained, I asked not due to lack of reading comprehension but due to semantics. I wanted to be sure that by Dolby headphone device it was meant that the actual technology used was the trademarked technology "Dolby Headphone" and not a device for "headphones" that just so happens to decode "Dolby".

 

Yes, I did overlook the amp section of the guide, but other than that the only thing I did wrong was not effectively communicate what I meant. It is also true that on the Astro website it does not say "Dolby Headphone" in the description for the product. In fact I tried to view the PDF for the 2013 Mixamp, but only found one for the older model. It is only in retrospect that I spotted the only real indication that "Dolby Headphone" technology is used is the logo (which is a picture, not writing). That is a case of assuming knowledge on Astro's part.

No, not even close. He was making a general statement as this kind of thing happens all the time

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.


You could have a look at the asus xonar essence stx and the phoebus!

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

I've been meaning to put together a stanbdardized list.  For now, I have a few albums that I've listened to a LOT over the years, which I ripped to FLAC for testing:  Shpongle "Are You Shpongled?" is one of my all-time favorite albums and it's great for testing detail because the music is so layered; detailed headphones bring out sounds you didn't even know were there. Bonobo "Days to Come" (picked for familiarity) and Hiromi's Sonicbloom "Beyond Standard" (jazz!!!) are two of the others.  I need to find one or two more that have more variety.

Eizo Foris FS2333.

 

Nuff said.

 

I was using a 24" LED Syncmaster too and this is an awesome IPS gaming display. World's first possibly. 5 years warranty.

Hi guys, watching the COD Chanpionship last weekend, all the players where wearing IEM headphones, underneath their Astro headphones used for the mic.

Mad only reviewed one set of IEM, why are those guys all using IEM, except for sound isolation?

Any positioning advantages in FPS using IEM?

Any particular brands better than other?

Thanks

Alternatively, you can get a cheaper LG IPS234V-PN. It should perform similarly. There's some solid info in this slickdeals thread.

Yeah, well he didn't say if there was a budget. I think the price for the one I suggested is reasonable though.

$400 for a 23" IPS is robbery. You can get a Dell U2312HM for under $200 on Amazon right now.

Or pay $400 for a 30" IPS from Monoprice.

I respectfully disagree, sorry.

 

The one you posted is great but I took 2 issues with it when choosing between the two - 1] no HDMI input 2] recent Amazon offerings have a yellow hue [all of them...]

 

Luckily Dell offers 5 year warranty and zero dead pixel guarantee! Oh, wait...

 

I spent a lot of time comparing many different screens but found the Eizo one the best performer albeit at at a premium price.
