Gee... so you want EVERYTHING?

Once in a while, I'll have someone ask me at least something feasible, like good balance, without overpowering bass, slightly smooth, etc.

Thank you very much, Mad.

 

Actually, leak out is a my minor concern. I just need a pair of headphone that doesn't leak so much that it does the sound goes through the door of my room.

 

That said, is your recommendation kept?

Personally, I think these are more to my liking than the X1 was. I like how its bass doesn't have a negative effect on competitive games... especially those such as BF3 in which you are constantly hearing explosions and chaos from all the vehicles involved. That was something the X1 was too overpowering on... making it impossible sometimes to key in on my immediate surroundings.

 

BF3 TDM is a bit overwhelming with the X1's. Definitely. It's a thought like this that is making look at getting a third headphone. But, I do love the feeling that I am actually there--or in a movie. Yippee ki yay!

No open headphone is gonna bother someone not in the same room with the door closed. Unless you have it loud enough to cause ear damage, most won't even bother if the door is open.

Open headphone leak is over exaggerated anyways. Depending on how loud you listen, you may not even bother someone in the same room. I've used all of my open headphones even with people around, and no one complains.

Yes. The K712/Annie would be my best recommendation as the true all rounders, if you can afford them and have a good form of amping. Otherwise, you can't go wrong with the MA900, though the MA900 leaks out more than any other headphone I've tried that isn't Planar magnetic/stat.

Well if you listen to music at insanely loud volume levels like many people at local meets do, then the noise leakage is a huge problem especially when you can hear someone else's music over your own headphones over the background chatter.

 

-_-

 

I also hate it when people let you listen to their headphones and they control the volume knob. Say the volume knob is at the 3 o'clock position:

 

Person: Is this too loud for you?

Me: Uh...hellz yeah it is! Tune it down back to 9 o'clock please.

I just am asking for a better choice.

 

I never am asking for a recommendation of headphones that are great for all.

 

It's because that I made a list where is those good choices what I guess.

That happens in sub-optimal situation like meets. If you're in public, chances are, you're not gonna be using open headphones. For home use, it's doubtful you'd ever need that much volume.

I rarely go above 8% on the windows volume slider. Anything above that just starts to hurt.

Thank you once more, Mad, for your recommendations and patience.

My bad, it seems PC master volume is upsampled as to not lose audio quality from the OS volume (Vista and newer). What you DON'T wanna do is lower software volume control.

Yes.  I've noticed that as well.  How can their ears take that much volume?

 

*Person gives me a headphone then turns the volume several "o'clocks" past comfortable listening level*

Person:  So...how does this headphone sound to you?

Me:  Hmm....LOUD!!
