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.

While everyone is talking about sound cards, what sound card is recommended for gaming usage (Dolby Headphone, I guess?) for the Senn PC 360? I believe someone mentioned an Asus card, however, there seems to have been a few more brought up and I'm wondering what would best fit my usage scenario.

I don't think it's been long enough yet, not been quite a month yet since that email, but I am anticipating great things. In the meantime, I am re-acquiring a Recon3D USB and I intend to compare them someday.

The priority is even positional gaming. So, by elimination, open headphone are the right choice.

Excuse for I 'm not manifesting me so well, but I don't know speak English.

I hope you had understood my asking. In other word, among those headphones I've listed, what's your recommendation for me?
The fact that you aren't a native English speaker, yet you used the word "manifesting," makes you awesome in my view. smily_headphones1.gif
Among the headphones you listed, with your preferences, I would suggest either the Sony or AKG headphone. Everyone so far has been surprisingly pleased with the MA900, it gives you everything you need and is very easy to live with, but the AKG provides that extra 2% of wow that will spoil you from anything less.

^Check out nameless's guide here. Lotsa ideas and setups for each budget.

I'd also like to take a moment to thanks MLE for this thread for I would not have gotten the x1 without it. Should have my mad dogs 3.2 in by Monday for my closed set. Now just gotta find a portable for my work and commute set. Been getting less and less inclined to use IEMS nowadays. Maybe when the wallet recovers a bit i'll look into some Beyer 1350s :P. Gotta go put the beats on ebay and Prolly should sell my second set of X1s.

Just finished Bioshock Infinite and i didn't even turn on my z5500 once since i got the X1s. Definitely also have been "rediscovering" music esp old EDM and oh what a difference a little bit of bass makes. So much more enjoyable than the HD280s. Since i've been playing A TON of Dota 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7H30B013I0

So, it seems having a little more income has proven to be much more expensive, lol.

Xero, I know what you mean. How'd you like Bioshock Infinite? I'm up for watching a little DotA 2, I haven't found a mentor or fellow noob to play with/learn from yet.

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.

AxelCloris,
A welcome interjection.
I just noticed Newegg has a discount on an Infinity download code... $16. Of course, I just re bought a Recon3D USB myself (I can already hear the groans... Jk guys!) and a few other treats, and I must cool down the wallet exercise for a little while. Bioshock: Infinity, Metro: Last Light, Borderlands 2, and even Destiny are on my "definite buy" list, but I have a backlog of other awesome games I bought to play too (Skyrim, Mass Effect 3, Knights of the Old Republic (probably will play on Mac), KotOR 2 (must play on PC, with troubleshooting, sadly), Dishonored, the last few levels of Tomb Raider after windows needed to be re-installed mid-game, Batman Arkham City for the 360...).

Also, awesome new logo, loving the effort.

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.

I would love one of those for my youtube channel avatar. wink.gif

I seriously need an editor...

Axel,
I played the first few missions, feels like a refreshing change of pace, I find myself morally challenged to replay missions over and over not to kill anyone innocent, but even that gets challenged... and it has the same feel of smart, polished gameplay design like in Beyond Good and Evil. Once I get BL2, I'll take you up on your offer wink.gif

Mad,
Are you asking, or just talking? wink.gif

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?

If you've never used a clip on, it might take a little while before the Koss clips become a non-issue. Like a few days to a week. After that, its like youre not wearing anything.

The Slyr is incredibly comfy, though you may have to tuck your ears in to get them inside the cups, instead of just letting the pads rest on the ears.

Overall, the Koss is more comfy (THE most comfortable of all headphones for me, while the MA900 and Siberia v1 are the most comfy fullsized for me ). I dunno how you plan on attaching the mod mic though. Not much area on the clip ons, lol.

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.
