The MD would be a better alternative to the Kingsound as it's open vs. closed. The X1 and Kingsound are both open.

The point is even though I put my amp on high Bass Boost, the Bass is still not what I would have experienced at the movies, and then the distortion when things gets exciting.

So I think the DSS actually has both a bass boost and a bass reducer built in.

Do you feel these mixers are a cheaper option then getting a new pair of headphones ?

Are you asking if bass boost is a cheaper option than buying new headphones? 

 

I guess it depends on how much more bass you need.

@mle

how strong of an amp do you need for the Mad Dog to use portable? I have an E07K that I'm not using very much, but I see a mini3 amp on for sale forum if that's needed. I have a d2000 that I use at home and am looking at these for walking around. also is the bass similar/better than he-400? thanks

Hope you enjoy! It's hard to guess what prices will be like in another country, or know what your purchase options are. The DT990 are also very good.

The mini3 is tiny and doesn't look like it'd be a worthwhile improvement over the amp in the E07K.

now that I think about it I think the mini barely has more power. I was looking at the high performance version of the mini. gonna take a look at the e07k specs

edit: well after looking at the specs, i was wrong. the mini3 is actually twice as strong as my e07k.

Headfonia finally reviewed the T90, and they seem to like it:

Need a proper cinema experinece, like at the movies, not too much bass but adequate.

You know what I mean ?

E07K: 220 mW@32 Ω
Mini3: 300 mW@33 Ω

E12:   880 mW@32 Ω

 

If you want portable power, I'd get the E12.

You're not going to get the same bass as a theatre with headphones, you need subwoofers for that. The bass boost on the DSS doesn't cause distortion from my experience.

Any difference between the DSS1 or 2, the DSS1 is cheap, worth getting?

I agree, the DSS bass boost is pretty clean.  Your headphone drivers will probably rattle before the DSS distorts (rattling is the headphones fault, not the DSS).

Yes, they use different surround sound processing.  The DSS 1 uses Dolby Headphone, while the DSS 2 uses something called "Cirrus Logic headphone surround". 

Not much is known about the latter.  Turtle Beach may have used it instead of Dolby Headphone to save money on licensing fees.  Turtle Beach's flagship headsets use Dolby Headphone.

 

The DSS 2 does a couple other things, like shifting around the virtual speakers and has with a few digital EQs built-in.

 

I believe the DSS 1 has a nicer bass boost.

So I just got the S500s in. They sound amazing with techno, but jeez these or so uncomfortable. The clamp isn't as bad as the 280s, but at least the 280 pads were soft. These feel like bricks against my ears...
