The way the gaming brands are marked up on price, and since they're still selling other models "below" on the product line, I could believe this price and it'll be awhile before the price comes down.

I seriously doubt that turtle beach would put a good dac or headphone chip in there....so if TAC costs 300 which I doubt, X7 will probably cost maybe more than 600 bucks...
How much of a difference is definitely up to opinion! You really have to get used to them to tell the difference, and even then people have different preferences.

Creative already confirmed a $399 MSRP.

I plugged the Recon3D USB into the Playstation the same way as the diagram illustrates for PS3, it worked right out of the box. You can install drivers on a computer and adjust the sound preferences from there, but default is pretty good.

There aren't really any other surround encoders for headphones in the X7's range/class... unless you count home receivers, which have less building cost focus on headphone components and surround processing.

How are razer kraken ? (the standard version without the mic)

They are recommended to me (among other headphones) in bass topic.

 

I am looking for comfortable and fun headphone. To have some fun and also get immersed. And I dont play competively so sound stage doesnt matter I think

post #26673 of 26682
I think the 399 price tag on the x7 is pretty fair, has a lot of nice features/ gear and having them all in one place is awesome. Also may pick up some bookshelf speakers for it.

Anyone see any red flags of concern on the x7?

been searching around and all I'm seeing is the AD700x at that price tag. getting mixed reviews about the "updated" x line. anyone know if they are any good? also the lowest price i can find on the AD700 is 200 bones. 

 

and is open back really more superior to closed? i always thought it was the other way around. yeah, as you can tell I'm a complete noob with this stuff. sorry

I have the AD700s, which I never use, I prefer my Sennheiser HD558s over my AD700, as the HD558 have more bass, not a lot more bass, but at least more then the AD700.

And used HD558 are selling for under $100.

 

Here is a replacement cable ($18-$26) for the Senn HD558 that comes with a 3.5mm plug, and comes in 5 different lengths.

Hello dude, I saw that you helped a lot of people on reddit that wanted a good pair of headphones and I hope you can help me as well. I have made the decision to buy new headphones and I've chosen SteelSeries Siberia V2 White/Black doesn't matter the colour. Now I have yet to decide what to buy, the ones with 3.5mm jack or the ones with USB, I don't know anything about my sound card, but maybe you can help me to find out if it is better for their quality to go with my sound card or to go with the USB ones. I want to use them for gaming and as well for listening to music, but mainly playing League of Legends, rarely Counter Strike and listening to music.
P.S: If you have any other better options in mind, like other headsets that are the same price as these ones or lower please tell me.
I am looking forward to receiving a prompt reply from you, if you are willing to help me of course.

Maybe this will help to tell me what/if I have a sound card:

This might help you to determinate whether my sound card is good or not.

P.S2: When I went in my Device Manager at Sound, video and game controllers section it showed NVIDIA High Definition Audio 5 times and NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device(Wave Exstensible) (WDM) 1 time, what does this mean? Do I have an audio card? Is my audio card better than the one that I receive with Siberia v2 USB?

Go to the first page of this thread and find Yourself something in Your price range, MLE has reviewed a lot of them so it should be easy to find a pair in Your budget.

 

If You didn't have an audio card There would be no sound coming out of Your pc whatsoever, You probably have something integrated in Your motherboard

 

The USB card that comes with siberias is utter garbage. My roommate has them and I used them for some time and aside from the comfort I can't really say anything good about them.

Valid point, but couldn't you get a nice decoder that DID do those things and then hook it up to a NICEE amp and run that to your headphones for that price? I mean, more wires, but if it has more value, then I think it is possible competition. Please correct me if I am wrong though!

Well wow haha HD558 under $100?!  Go for that. I have the pc360's and the drivers are similar if not the same and it helped a TON when I used to Scrim for COD4 (vs my Razer Carcharias lol). I think that is a winner

Anyone studying what op-amps will be the king for console gaming on the X7?  sounds like fun testing different ones
