Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 10/15/2014: Beyerdynamic T51i Added) - Page 1633

As like in the 1540 thread, you are in the minority with how you feel about them. To each his own...
post #24482 of 27860
Quite a few People at the office have the same opinion. We literally test headphones all day and I'd say about 75% were disappointed.

Has anyone hooked up the TH600? Guessing they sound identical to the D7000.

You'd guess wrong. TH600 is know to be more neutral, though with a stronger mid bass emphasis over the sub bass, which is the opposite of the D7000, which is known for it's whopping sub bass.

Change, I may take up your offer for the 1540 loan soonish, if you'll allow me. I'll send you the 15G on the way back if you wanna try something new and cheapish. biggrin.gif

Regarding the U3, I've never heard it so I can't say.  I will say the DAC in the Omni was indistinguishable from the Schiit Modi to me so I returned my Modi.  Considering how highly people rate the Modi around here, I'd say that's pretty solid.

 

Regarding the HP200, keep an eye on Amazon used section.  Micca Distributor sometimes sells refurbs for dirt cheap.  If you can get one of those, it's a no-brainer.  Mine was $135 shipped ($200 normally).

Thank you once again for your help, Stillhart.

It sounds like you really enjoy the HP100's.  If I were to change my mind and go for a closed headphone, is the HP100 the best choice at the sub-$300 price range for immersive (not competitive) PC gaming?  I've heard the DT770's are pretty good too, though perhaps the 80ohm version would need a better amp than the U3.

Woot! Something exciting may be coming from MLE once again!

I would, but the only set of 1540 alcantara pads I have are on the HP200 (I sold the replacement pair a while back). The 1540s have alpha pads on 'em (which are a bih' to put back on after removal).

I know how important it is for you, Mad, to review headphones in stock form. Do you still have the shure velours you bought off me? If so, I can just borrow them and place them on the HP200 while you have the 1540 and its stock alcantaras. I really can't see myself dealing with just the stock pleathers on the HP200 during that time. Plus, I'm very curious as to his they will sound with plain velours.

I cut off the screen on the 1840 velours, so it probably won't be ideal whatsoever.

Damn damn damn lol. Oh well tongue.gif

Be ready towards the end of the month. That's when I'll have the extra funds for shipping and such. I'm on a tight budget, right now...

As am I. Having two friends from Denmark staying with me for 3 weeks... basically dried up all my funds. Financial bind is being modest.
post #24490 of 27860
I'm basically j-o-b-less until the fall semester starts. I really have to to keep a lid on things until then...

Have any of you ever heard of Allen and Heath headphones? I had a buddy that works at Guitar Center suggest them to me when I told him I was looking to purchase the Q701s. He really seems to stand by them and he owns a pair of Xones (I think that's what they are called). I didn't see them in the guide, so just wondering if any of you have any experience with them.

Nope. Never heard of that brand.

Idea is to output surround sound from console into a PC and then use virtual surround sound software on PC. This way I can avoid a Mixamp and avoid Dolby Headphone.

 

Can this be done through a capture card and virtual audio cables?

Probably using a card that has optical input, then run optical out from console to optical in in audio card then set optical in as a main audio source on pc, then apply dolby headphone encoding and output through headphone jack. To be honest, just buy a mixamp or dss, less hassle.

 

Also, I know You guys advised me to go with K612 and not hd598 but I found used hd598 for an equivalent of 70 usd so I bought them immediately.

Hey Change, did you listen to the Fidelio L2?

I almost got the DT770 before I got the HP100.  I was told by a couple people that I wouldn't like the DT770, given my preference for the Q701's sound signature.  I'm sure they're great, they just sound different; once you have a better idea of the sound signature you like, it'll make decisions like this easier.  Unfortunately, that will only come with experience.

Score!  I'm sure you'll be happy with them for the price.  And if not, should be easy enough to sell them for the same price you paid (or more!).
