overpowering one-notyness of the bass? :evil:

I mean, that's one of it's downsides, but that wasn't my issue. My issue was that I'm particularly sensitive to the specific region of bass that the X1 (and many other headphones) boost. It gives me a headache. Hell, even the Q701 fatigues me,
even with it's less than bassy sound.

It's not an X1 problem. Its an MLE problem.

Thought you might be interested Mad Lust, I just got a review loaner of the AT AG-1!

 

 

Absolutely gorgeous looking can. Will try to get a video up of this in the coming weeks, but first impressions as far as sound goes is that this thing sounds like how I remember the A900X sounds. Apparently the 3D wing mechanism on this version has been tightened up a little as well...

That's too bad.

I wash my face every morning and night. Once I'm done I apply creams and or oil's to moisturize my face. My question is, won't the X1 pads go to hell quickly in my case? Should I be worried?

Does anyone here have any experience with the JDS Labs Cmoybb V2.03?

I was thinking about getting one of these for the X1's. I was talking with a customer service rep and they customize the amp for your specific headphones. So the gain/bass boost/whatever will be tailored for the X1's specs. The guy I talked with had personal experience with the X1 so he knew about them. From what he was saying, they base there customization's off of user feedback, but I also assume it would be off their own usage/testing as well. They apparently had their booth set up next to the Philips booth at Canjam in October.

 

There is also a rechargeable battery version as well if you wanted it to be more portable.

I mentioned earlier i don't have experience with a good pair of headphones. As a first time user would I be able to notice a large difference between CALs and the other headphones in the 150-300 range?

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90 Just as China finally lifts its ban on foreign video game consoles, one of its biggest electronics OEMs has announced a new Ouya competitor. It’s called Tron, and Huawei hopes to sell it for less than $120. The console itself is about the size of a soda can, and its minimalist exterior hides some pretty impressive ARM internals. Huawei opted to one-up Ouya by dropping in an Nvidia Tegra 4 processor and 2GB of RAM. They may offer two different models, one with 16GB of storage and another with 32GB. On the back of the “can” you’ll find an Ethernet and USB 3.0 port as well as HDMI and headphone outputs. Tron’s storage is expandable, too. There’s a door on the bottom that conceals a micro SD slot. The Tron controller is a lot like the Ouya’s — the main difference being that the trackpad in the center is larger. It connects to the console via Bluetooth and can be recharged by hooking up a cable to the micro USB port. Like Ouya, Huawei has heavily customized Android for their console. The simplified dashboard offers up access to games, videos, apps — and, of course, Huawei’s store. Google Play access doesn’t appear to be part of the plan, but that might not matter a whole lot. There’s a good chance that the Huawei Tron might never be sold outside of China. Disappointing? Perhaps a little. Those who got to spend hands-on time with the console at CES found it zippy enough. Then again, it sounds as though Huawei failed to mitigate the annoying Bluetooth controller lag that plagues Android consoles. What’s more disappointing is that Huawei went with the name Tron and didn’t even bother to deck this thing out with some blue neon and angular geometric patterns.

The only way you can get a headset or dac/headphone amp to get sound from a OUYA if your monitor has no speakers is by getting a HDMI to VGA converter with R/L Audio Converter!

Naturally a stripe down from your sideburns (if we go straight down in a line) isn't sensitive for whatever thing you might have. acne etc...so you could spare that part out and not worry about letting your X1 pads soak everything up, because otherwise they will. Not sure what you are using though so something that makes you a shiny face might look odd there. 

 

Why do you use a lot stuff on your face anyway?

I don't use a lot of stuff on my face. I simply wash my face and then apply moisturizer and at night I wash it again and apply moisturizing oil. My skin is great because I do this every day. I don't walk around all day with a shiny face if that's what you are thinking, lol.

Daddy.. hate to ask this, but are you a man or a woman? Only asking for a bit of context (my GF get's me to put on cream n stuff occasionally, but I'm 170% man etc, honest guv).

 

Anyways.. think that sock mod might well do it for you (the one in the Fidelio mega thread)

I'm a man. My lady is the one crazy about beauty so she got my in the habit. I'm thinking that maybe I can apply cream in the morning on face except the part around my ear. At night, I guess I can wait until right before bed to wash my face. I usually do it at night when I'm up and alert and not right before bed. I hate that feeling of being super sleepy and having to do something like wash my face when all I want to do is sleep.

  • A well moisturised man generally tends to be a PS4 player (according to scientists).

 

  • Guys with flaky skin, paunches and a " tbh pal ... I couldn't give a flying ****" veer towards the Xbox.

 

How's that for social commentary?

I own both. Interesting.... :blink:

 

I don't want to get rid of these bad boys. If I decide to keep them, I'll have to take real good care of the pads and maybe Philips will release a new revision so I can sell these and buy those. Hopefully they are smart enough to not mess with the sound. Make the pads replaceable and I guess they can strengthen the cable socket while they are at it. I haven't had issues myself but I hear that it can break easily?

Ok guys sorry for all the questions. I'm very new to the headphone game and want to make sure i spend my money wisely. I'm looking for a "fun" headphone that I can use for PS4 and PC gaming, and music. I'm not too worried about being great competitively but obviously that's a plus. I'm looking to spend around $150-200 or a tad more.
