hmmm that's a bit on the long side.  are you sure you're pressing the right buttons.... ..?

 

yeah the FW900 and HP variant are legendary in the computer geek world.  i haven't gamed on a CRT since around 2004 or so.  i imagine it would be jarring going back.  jarring in a good way.

Actually your evidence being hrtf's, is how we hear and while they are able to use algorythms to understand how our hearing works but when recording a BINAURAL RECORDING it is as simple as two different mics using crossfade.  If you watch a video of binaural recordings,  It's a dummy head with two mics, one in each ear in an anachoic chamber.  They don't alter it in anyway after it's recorded. Now, what you're talking about is turning a MONAURAL SOURCE into a binaural recording.   That's pretty much how dolby headphone works. 

I don't appreciate your attitude btw.  I was just trying to help you out and you turned hcinto a little tkid all of a sudden.

imaybe bmy analogy of crt tv's was a soft spot since you have an "unbeatable picture quality" crt but it's obvious that you knew what i meant.

Great thread, heaps of good info!

 

After doing hours and hours of research I think I've settled on either the DT998, the PC360 or the HD598. I'm going to be using these for gaming and movies, probably about 50/50. I'd be really interested in people's views on which of these are better for movies.

 

I used to have a Logitech 5500 which was fantastic for watching movies, great surround sound and awesome bass. I loved it - way better than going to the movies. Now that I've moved to the UK, I have to go to headphones. I'm hoping to get something as good as the 5500 for movies, but not sure headphones will deliver. What do you guys think?

post #9379 of 26694
I think the overall quality and ability to reveal on any of those three would easily put your Logitech speakers to shame... Bass might not be as bone rattling but it'll be more detailed and deeper, there's always other headphones if you're a total basshead.

Dt990 all the way.
post #9381 of 26694

I personally didn't like the 598's for gaming at all.  The imaging seemed off and the headphone itself is not as detailed as i like.  I personally find the headphone to have a strained characteristic to it.  Like it slowly lets the sound out instead of being effortless.  Also, even with a good amp driving these, i could get the drivers to create a bit of excursion if i wanted to but there was minimal pressure from sub bass.

MLE, planning on trying out the Sony mdr-ma900 anytime soon?

Lol, no. I wont be buying anything anytime soon, though expect a couple of surprises in The coming weeks.

Some brands like Senn might have more similarities across models even between open and closed stuff but even then there's always exceptions... For instance the closed HD25-1 ii sound very different than most Senn (and not necessarily in the way you'd expect), still one of their oldest and most popular headphones.
I guess you could view AT AD700's as a very poor man's Q701? If that's the direction you were looking in... Probably easier to compare specific models or try out stuff with similar signatures based on recommendations and threads like this than to go by brand.

Maybe, I'll be trying a Akg K77 tommorow [a pretty HARD CORE low end AKG can] so well see how it compares to the Koss Pro Dj 100... if it's better than I'll look into Akg more. If it sucks... TO BAD FOR U AKG, besides akg cans are notoriously bass light... [with the expection of thier Bass Heave cans]

 

Also I'm buying a dt 770 pro 80 soon I think :D, I hear the Sub bass is MONSTEROURS ^^

So I got tired of dealing with my modmic/Q701 cables. Not the prettiest, but effective at least.

 

700

post #9386 of 26694

lol @alex saw a kid on youtube that did something like this on his q701's.  Great idea with adding the mic though.

After using a 27" daily for the past 6-months or so, I'd be hard pressed to want to revert to anything less than 24". Display wise, the next few years should be pretty interesting... its nice to see IPS panels finally hitting the mainstream, as well as advances in OLED and other technologies.

 

I don't really think it's a matter of software enhancements, since anyone with any sense would just turn all that crap off. Less input lag and no screwed-up color reproduction that way.

 

There seem to be some legitimate improvements with new displays, like better color gamuts and contrast (deep blacks that aren't crushed in the lowest shades) and whatnot in the professional models, but they still haven't fixed some of the central tradeoffs. What's worse is that people don't care about some of those disadvantages, save for the most demanding of gamers-a niche at best.

Out of curiosity, how well does it display a 4:3 picture?

 

I never thought I would own one myself until a few months ago. Atlanta craigslist FINALLY paid off, and I just happened to have the money at the time.

 

4:3 looks pretty good on it, if you don't mind slight pillarboxing. I sure don't, especially coming from 21" FD Trinitron monitors which were basically 4:3 versions of the FW900 anyway. Just make sure you put up a test pattern so that you get the aspect ratio right when adjusting the image size.

I'm Kidding really i have the HP-A7217A same as yours and i can't game without it at all. Aside from getting nauseous when playing games on lcd's of any sort they also make my eyes blood shot red after only an hour of playing on them. I gave up using lcd's 3  years back and found my new joy.

 

She takes about 30mins to get to her climax and put out like no other monitor can for me and then when she does its oooHH so Heavenly it makes me wanna  cry lol..

 

If she breaks down i don't know what i'd do.   I0 years old and she still puts out vivid colors, crisp blacks and crazy nice contrast ratios like a spring chickin..

 

Yeah, if my FW900 were to ever break down, I'd be pretty frustrated in that now I'd have the urge to buy another monitor, and it would most likely be worse (either another 21" aperture grille CRT like the ones I had been using prior, or a 24" 1920x1200 IPS LCD). Part of the relief in owning the FW900 is that I'd never need another monitor as long as this one works.

 

LCDs don't make me nauseous, but it's pretty easy to notice slower response times and the ghosting/blur that occurs as a result, along with non-native resolution scaling and the inferior viewing angles.

Okay, I admit, I re-read my post some time later and thought I came across as a bit too much of a jerk. Being a jerk is not something I ever intend to do, but sometimes I see things that strike a bit too close to home, and that brings out my embittered side like a dam that just burst, the part of me that's frustrated at how things are going these days. Regressions in technology, game design, things like that.

 

But enough of that; what we have here is a disagreement on definitions and semantics. I adopted the term "binaural" to describe such HRTF-mixing technologies because it was the best way I could think of to describe headphone surround done right.

 

If you think about it, a binaural recording done with a dummy head just has the dummy head as the HRTF filter, and in this context, I'm not talking so much about the source recordings (dummy head in real life vs. monaural sound effects in a video game with HRTF filters applied) as much as the end experience. Listening to a binaural recording and listening to a game that uses Aureal A3D with a Vortex-based card or OpenAL with CMSS-3D Headphone or Rapture3D's various headphone HRTF mixing modes is a very similar experience in terms of spatial perception over headphones. That's why I describe it as such, especially since a lot of people here on Head-Fi have at least passing knowledge of binaural recordings.

 

If you have a better term to convey the experience of 3D sound over headphones in video games, please tell me, because I sure can't think of one. "Virtual surround" has too many connotations of emulating speaker systems instead of the way we naturally hear things in all directions.

I get called a jerk, and an ass all the time. Thats what happens when youre a bit too blunt with opinions. biggrin.gif

That and messages through the internet tend to be taken with unintended perceived inflection. I sound serious even when im joking, so I have to literally add emotis here or there so people understand that im not being serious. frown.gif

People are pretty easily offended on the webz. :/
