But have been reading a little in the beyerdynamic dt 990 2005 edition thread, and a light just powered on. Is the version i have ordered, an OLD model???

 

Or is that one the newest?

Anyone knows this?.

Seeing how quickly Amazon's turn around on products is  (at least here in the US), I would highly doubt that they would have a 2005 model laying around; unless it was through a 3rd party seller. Do you know the return policies of amazon.de? If its anything like its US counterpart then exchanges are fairly easy and painless, should the need to return them arise.

Small price to pay for such a great deal on the HE's.

Which type of pic do you guys like better on headphones: shallow DOF or greater DOF?

 

I took some both ways.  Here's a gif of both types....

 

 

I'd have to go with the greater dof.... the back bokeh doesn't pull my interest as much as the detail in the serial#... just my opinion fwiw. The plain white background might have something to do with it though.

PYYYYYH :D.

That's nice to know.

Do they have plans to release a new version/upgraded version og the DT990, since it's 8 years ago, they came available ?

I don't think so. I think they're remaining and focusing on the Tesla line, though I did hear their next plans are a Custom One Pro version of the 880s.

A Y-splitter with a 4 pole connection on the end. Be sure to check if the one you are getting will work.

 

Didn't your mixamp already come with one? Or do you still have to get the Mixamp as well? New ones come with the Y-adapter.

 

In my experience so far with the Mixamp I find that it gives a little bit of background static noise when connected to the controller mic port of a WIRED Xbox 360 controller. With the wireless controller it sounds fine.

 

Reports all over Google that Xbox is very noisy when it comes to the USB connections.

Search Amazon for a Startech HEADSET splitter.

no it came with the opposite for some reason. Its only lets you plug in one thing, but has two that plug into your pc i guess.

 

Edit: a PC Splitter.

 

is this the correct one?

Is it possible to add an extra amp to the 2013 astro mixamp? I need an extra amp to help fully power AKG Q701 headphones with a mic. Right now the 2013 mixamp is topped out.

So, I'm gonna invest in the ad700's for my birthday at the end of the month, but I want a good amp to invest in too so I can get the most out of the 700's. I don't know anything about amps other than the mixamp but I figure if I can get more out of the headphones I'd be willing to pay a little more. Would prefer a portable amp but If need be I'll take a non portable one. I'd also like it to be idiot proof since I am technologically challenged frown.gif

Are you looking to game with the ad700's? like on pc, ps3, or xbox 360?

Ad700 doesn't need an amp at all.
