Yes... unless you have a good AVR, a soundcard makes more sense than an external device like the Mixamp.

Ok so I just tested what you mention earlier about higher impedance cans, and you are absolutely correct. I tested 3 different headphones akg 702 annies, senn hd 598s, and the denon d600s. In that order, they had the least amount of hiss.

 

Since Im foolish, I probably will try to track down an audio reciever with a dolby headphone jack.

avr is most likely audio/video receiver, like a home theater receiver. think Denon, Yamaha, Marantz home theater receivers that do surround sound.

I think MLE should try and review some Fostex TH600s for gaming wink.gif

I got them a couple weeks ago and they are amazing, and as most people say they're upgraded d7000s and 90% of th900 sound for half the price I think you'd dig em.

So comfy too, super light (lighter than th900) can wear em for hours and not even notice them being there. The soundstage is amazing, better than a lot of open cans I've heard, and great positioning for gaming. Been playing Gta5 and loving it; straight out of the Audio engine d1, even half pot is almost ear bleedingly loud.

I'm wondering if anyone has tried th600 with an Astro mixamp as I'm curious about this Dolby headphone business. I'd probably run it into an E17 if need be. Tbh I dont really see the need for Dolby hp tho it the D1 staging with these cans works so well for me as-is. Would positional accuracy really be that much better?

I guess the mic mixing is a big bonus though, trying to work out what mic to get too for ps3/ps4 if any.. USB mic that I use on PC might do the job..

Anyway I need to try the th600 out with some PC fps now.. I wonder if BF4 will have better audio than BF3's horrible in game audio muddled positioning, might try the demo..

Btw on the front page, there will be a new planar magnetic cans from OPPO. Its also chinese like Hifiman.

I wonder how will they sound and perform on gaming compared to Hifiman.

However, Oppo in China is mainly making mobile phones. Audio compared to Hifiman, Oppo is less known. However they do have MP3 player.

A planar from Fostex is coming as well.

Supposedly the planar from Fostex is using the same drivers as the T50RP. Probably an effort to nab some sales from MrSpeakers...

Who's the source?

It's been mentioned various times on the Alpha Dog thread, IIRC.

Well, let's wait for Fostex to give more details. Too much hype right now with the AD that gets into peoples heads, though I wish and want Dan to have the best success.

If the TH-600 is anywhere near the TH-900 then it gets my definite recommendation for gaming. I actually rate the TH-900 right now as the best headphone you can get for both worlds. While the HD 800 is technically a feat it's less exciting for music and can only best the Fostex in pure multiplayer, and that's nitpicking the Fostex at a very high level.
 
I am in love with this headphone. Yesterday I finished MoH: WF. While mediocre the sound quality is better than most games and with the new gen the future can only be brighter. It was very entertaining and helped me enjoy the game despite it's many shortcomings.

Having a hard time finding comparisons. Anyone have an opinion on the A2000X? And can anyone compare it to some of my favorites? The AD2000X, W5000, and AD2000. Thanks!
