Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 7/9/2014: Ultrasone HFI-15G Added) - Page 1146

post #17176 of 24506

I noticed with the PLYR1 that when I navigate the PS3 XMB...the initial first UI "click" noise when navigating the menus is very soft almost inaudible (couldn't hear it until I bumped up the volume). I also occasionally hear a brief popping/clicking noise when going from silence to audio. I can consistently reproduce this in DVDs by jumping between the different pages for scene selection. Bringing it up because it doesn't seem to happen on the XP400s or maybe its just not as audible. 

 

Is this like due to changing of source or audio format or something like what people complain about with some audio receivers? A normal occurrence on some headphones?

They pair fine.

 

What is the 60 ohm spec your talking about? 

 

For music I still prefer the iCan over the M-stage because of the switches on it. 

It says on the spec sheet, the lowest impedance output for m-stage is 60ohm. X1 is rated 30ohm, so will the m-stage higher output do any damage on the low imp x1.

Still don't understand about this impedance rate relation between amp and cans, need to learn more...

"Output Power: 200mW/300Ω, 400mW/60Ω"

 

That's just telling you how much power it's putting into 60ohms.  That's not the lowest it will go.  You can plug IEMs into it if you want.

The M-stage's actual  HP jack output impedance is 5 ohms.

 

The M-stage is probably a little overkill for the X1 though.  They're not that hard to drive.  A think a cheaper amp would work fine with them.

These are the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. I will never view headphones the same way after buying these. I prefer the sound signature over the ad900x. They're less fatiguing and sound great for all genres.

Anyways, just felt like chiming in and thanking you for the suggestion on this badass headphone.


Yay, another convert! biggrin.gif

That's somewhat normal, as it's jumping from different audio types. DVD menus tend to default back to PCM, while the movie itself plays in Dolby Digital.

Many devices do this, not just the PLYR. My old soundbar did this, quite loudly.

Thanks for the explanations.

I must consider to buy stronger amps for my next cans, probably k712 or hd650.

If I buy cheaper less strong amps now for X1, then I must buy another amp later. More money to spend.

Too bad I can't find magni/modi seller here. I must wait for my brother from USA to visit me here next year.

Don't know if it's been mentioned or not yet, but Plantronics has just released their new RIG headset + mixamp combo.

 

Check it out: http://www.amazon.com/Plantronics-Stereo-Gaming-Headset-Xbox-360/dp/B00EV00N02

Video Review: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AgDzFuDczKY

 

I absolutely love the removable/replaceable cable and mic! Otherwise, I'm not to fond of the mixamp as I don't need it and would love to see the headset sold by itself.

I've owned Plantronics headsets and I wasn't impressed with the sound. With this headset, once you take their mixer out of the loop I wouldn't expect it to be much better than the ones I've heard. The mixer piece is the key selling point of that system, designed to mix in other devices like cell phones and mp3 players. It's not a Mixamp alternative. There are other headsets that have detachable mics and there are certainly better sounding headphones than the Plantronics sets I've heard before. Heck, my KSC 75 blew away my old Gamecom headset and was more comfortable as well.

Initial impressions, plox

Granted, they're gonna be a radical departure from your Ultrasones. wink.gif

OMG classic 60gb PS3? So much want.

It's actually an 80gb MGS4 PS3, the one with software backwards compat. I have an original 60gb boxed up with a bum bluray laser tho.

 

Initial Impression? I didn't know about the box full of popcorn and it was dumped all over my bed lol. I'm still getting accustomed to the sound but so far I like it :)

 

Also, notice anything different?

Could use some more too.

What pads are those, and do they sound anywhere near the stock pads? If so, LEND ME THEM, PRETTY PLEASE! biggrin.gif

Sorry about the popcorn. I didn't have the patience to figure out how to put the MA900s back in their 'carton', so I left it out. frown.gif

They're from my donor pair of vintage Beyer DT901's with a bum driver. Slightly increased soundstage at the cost of some of the bass. Probably because of the extra thickness of the pads. They're twice as thick but have a smaller inner diameter.

Bah... not willing to make those sacrifices. frown.gif
