Hmm at that price headphone that will cover applications that the X1 doesn't....
If the Sound Blaster Z can power them then my willpower will be tested.
If I may interject with my own thoughts, I'm in the middle of Bioshock Infinite and I'm absolutely loving it. Picked it up the day it came out for Mac. The story is pulling me in so much it's almost nuts. I'm also loving the atmosphere of the game a lot more than I did the feel of the original Bioshock. Plus, it's absolutely wonderful zipping around Columbia on the rails and then launching down on top of someone. I began playing the game in stereo, and I can already hear the groans of the others in this thread. But I didn't have my Recon3D at the time to try surround with the game. And right off the bat, around the point where I was coming up to the lottery I found myself greatly missing the surround sound effect. Even though nothing critical was going on, just simply the music from the fairgrounds moving left to right felt so unnatural. But again, this is all due to me playing in stereo.
If you do pick up BL2 and you're playing on PC/Mac I'd love to play with you sometime. I'm on steam under the same name. Easy to find. If you have Skyrim and ME3 ahead of you, you're in for some major treats. ME3 has one of the best stories in years. Notice how I didn't say endings. ;) And Skyrim is far and away my favorite open world RPG just after Fallout: New Vegas. Dishonored I have in my queue as well, but I haven't touched it yet. I was planning to before Bioshock: Infinite, but when they released the Mac client through Steam, I installed it and went on my merry way.
I love the logo myself as well. Unfortunately I cannot take any credit for the design. I was talking with an industrial design buddy of mine, trying to get a little inspiration from him to create one. Between leaving work and coming home, he sends me a file, "something like this?" I absolutely love the work he put into it. It's almost creepy how there are several subtle layers to it that convey something about me but aren't necessarily obvious or direct. So what started out as an aside between friends turned into him getting an inspiration and creating this. Wish I could take credit for it; but credit where it's due, it was all him.
An program to edit the videos? A person to edit them? A person to edit your writing?
I don't have a degree in Electronic Media specializing in Audio Engineering and Video Production for nothing. :p
The Koss KSC75's and a AntLion modmic seem like the dreamteam pair for budget gaming, total of about $45 on Amazon. A bit more and maybe I could get the Skull Candy Slyr but I might miss out on the "directionality is accurate" of the KSC75's also their clip-on comfort, cool and lightweight.
The lightweight and cool is key, I currently use Logitech's Ultimate Ear signature UE6000 which I love their looks, the noice cancelling, bundled splitter, case and in-line remote for smartphones. The UE6000 have been heaven for me except I cant wear them long before my ears ache, the driver presses onto my ears and disappointing because the heat.
I'm planning on downgrading to get the light KSC75's because I need comfort even though I'm sacrificing a bunch by switching from my UE6000. Still questioning between that dreamteam KSC75+modmic or Skullcandy SLYR whatcha guys think has better comfort?
You'll have better results attaching the ModMic to the PortaPro (or even SportaPro) but it may be difficult on the KSC75. I use mine on the PortaPro as my travel headset and it works great.
