ok, now You are onto something. Even price is better than hp200.

Thanks. Will read up on this. Especially build quality as it is kinda the worst point of CAL!

Been gaming with my X1s for about 6 months now. So amazing. Such a step up from my Astros A40s. Night and day!!!
Now the right driver is effed! Distortion. Crackling. Basically every time someone talks in a game. Happened in a Wolfenstien. Went over to bf4. Same.
Soooo bummed. I live in japan. Bought them in the USA. Phillips won't honor their warranty cause I bought them in a different country . I have to send them back to the USA, send them to phillips get them sent back here. Probably cost me 100 bucks and take months.

What should I buy in the mean time. I can't take a step back. No way.
Hd598? Akg 702? Beyer??? T90, t70?
I use astro mix amp. Can it drive 250 ohm cans like hd650s?
Hifiman he-4s.
I have vmoda m100s at work but have gamed with them. Talk about fun cans!!! I want something like the m100 for gaming. Maybe I can get some new closed back for work and then use my m100s for gaming?
Realy want alpha dogs. And i can buy direct and get shipped to japan. Or t90s?
Possibilities are endless. So I want something as good as or as fun as the x1s or m100s

Went up to mad dogs from an x1. Bass isn't as boomy but way more accurate and enough for me. Became even less bass when I upgraded them to alphas (never adjusted the bass screw though) but got even more accurate and are almost as open as the X1s.I ended up selling the x1s to fund a Lyr 2 (also sold an Asgard 2). X1s non replaceable cups worried me in the long run and customer service from Dan at Mr.speaker's is top notch. Looking to either get a he400\he400i or he500\he560 for open bass slam phones (to pair with the alphas) as I do miss the fun sound signature of the x1. Maybe they'll make a replaceable cup X2 someday.

The problem is amping. Don't the hifiman and the alphas need some amping above and beyond the astro mix amp?
X2s..... Those would. Be nice. Hoping vmoda with coming out with xs version of th m100. They are like an upgraded m800 right? How about an upgraded m100. I couldn't imagine a more insane set of cans.

I was watching mlg finals just now (entertainment, not education) and i noticed that these guys were using Audio Technica ATH-AG1 headsets. It kinda surprised me since most trupr0players use a40s, so a question needs to be asked, are audio-technica headsets as good as their headphones? It would be cool if MLE could review those.

Yeah, they're. It's the same what Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic does - rebranded audiophile headphones.

You of course pay a premium for headset convenience.

Since they have 32 ohm impendance and come with a 4 pole jack they can be run off the mixamp alone which makes them pretty dan convenient. If only they weren't so pricey

Phillips says if I bought them in the USA, the warrenty is only valid in the usa. I bought them in the USA to save 60$..... stupid. 

Amazon (USA) has already sent a replacment set to my home in the USA. So now I have to ship the brokem pair back, and get my parents to ship the new pair. 

what a pain. 

Picked up AKG Q701s for the meantime but my new X1s will probably get here about the same time.  and will use my M100s too, they are portable afterall. so hauling to and from work is not that big of a deal.

I have been gaming with my AD700x for a couple of months now and am extremely happy. I just snagged a pair of q701s for a great price and am looking at an amp. These cans will be used exclusively on Xbox 360/Xbox one with my astro mixamp.

My question is will I need an amp with a DAC? I know I need an amp to drive the 701s, but if I am exclusively gaming on xbox, will I need a DAC as well? Could I just get the older fiio E9 instead of the e09k? Sorry for such a noob question. I've looked everywhere and can't seem to find an answer.

You won't be able to use a separate DAC because the Mixamp does that already.  Just an amp will be perfect.  Yes, the older E9 will be a good alternative to the E09k for your uses.
