You might look into the new HiFiMan cans coming out later this year.  MLE is very excited fro the HE-560...

I'll be getting the Q's back in a trade, but I def don't want them.
Hmm, but isn't the HE-560 going to be a lot of money? Anything beyond $500 (hell even $400 is my "pre"-limit) is kinda ridiculous.

Pretty much what I want. Something that's a neutral "reference" headphone but has a bit of bass to it. Kinda like the Audeze LCD-2, but just with qualities akin to that of the AKG's.

 

Aside - IEM's hit the marks when it comes to portability and being able to listen to in public/working out, but can they match/near match the performance of my AKG k702 annies? I even considered the HE-500's. I prefer a neutral headphone that has great bass extension and some oomph to it as far as music goes. For gaming, of course the soundstage, imaging, and clarity are going to be the biggest things.

Weird, I coulda sworn you mentioned $800 earlier... Sorry can't help with suggestions as I've never tried anything in the $400-500 range.

Out of curiosity, are there any console gamers out here who use SCUF controllers? In your opinion are they worth the money?

$100-$150 for a controller. Not worth it at all unless it prints money.

Good, for a minute I thought I was the only one who thought that is the utter waste of money

$100+ gamepads that are just custom-modified versions of official first-party gamepads? No thanks.

 

If anything, $60 for a new gamepad is expensive enough as is. The price really adds up when you want to have some local multiplayer.

I had one for a while. Sold it after a bit because I realized just how much of a waste of money they are. I'm maybe marginally better with a Scuf on competitive games such as CoD. Don't get one unless you either have a ton of money to burn or are committing to a gaming profession. If I have a ton of money, I MAY consider getting the base model one for PS4.

Now Kontrol Freeks and Squidgrips are two controller accessories I can't play without.

I had squidgrip for PS3 some time ago. Had to throw'em away when the controller died on me. Still it was a great accessory

Never tried the CAL! but from reading many impressions of it, I think the SoundMAGIC HP200 might be a well suited upgrade for ya smily_headphones1.gif

So I have a question, I currently have my fiio x3 set as my dac, now assuming I want to use surround sound software for my headphones is there anyway to use this while the x3 is connected? I am getting basically 2 volume output sources on my pc if I pick the one with surround sound I get no sound from the x3, anyone have a solution to this?

I guess You're connecting x3 through USB. Well, virtual surround can be outputted (sorry for bad english) through analog or optical port. Since x3 doesn't have optical/coaxial input You can't really use it as a virtual surround dac. There is a method for doing this posted on the first page of this thread but I'm not really sure how is this supposed to work
