Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 7/9/2014: Ultrasone HFI-15G Added) - Page 1174

How about messaging FiiO? I did a few months ago and they only said it was sent to the R&D team. They built a special E12 advertising in this forum so why not use that power? Anything FiiO will be better than all the toys we have right now.

If it were me I would still go for a ~$150 open headphone like the HD558 or a used MA900.

hmm why would you still recommend me to go for open ? and both are pretty close in price, what do you recommend out of the two, besides music I game and watch movies a lot.

Wouldn't something like CAL be better for him? Also, I've read great things about the Focal One Spirit...I don't know how it'd perform with DH though.

I actually started writing them an email a while ago but then stopped.  The message is still saved as a draft though.

 

We should invite James from FiiO into a discussion about a gaming product and what features we'd want in the design.

I just prefer a good open headphone to a closed one for gaming, so if it were me I would try and make that work first.  A good open headphone will be better than the closed headphones at the price point for gaming as they will have better soundstages. The only closed headphones that have soundstages on par with the better open headphones are ones that cost over $600. 

 

The only con with open headphones is leakage/isolation, but it's usually not a big deal unless there's people trying to sleep in the same room or whatever.

 

I'd say the MA900 would be a safer choice than the HD598.

I would looove FiiO to manufacture something similar to this but with Dolby Headphone included...

Mixamp is a toy, we need something better with DTS support, very low impedance output (even line out and/or optical) and (almost) zero noise/hiss. 

 

MUST LUST ENVY!

Considering we're basically choosing between whichever device sucks the least from Astro/Turtle Beach/Tritton/etc., FiiO could come in with their audiophile chops and wipe the floor with them.

 

Asus is good in that regard too, but for some reason they're still strictly PC and are staying away from supporting devices like consoles. 

 

It's not like you need to license anything to Xbox or Sony and brand it up.  I wouldn't care if the device was a hunk of black adonized metal or a plastic box.  You just need to license the DSP tech (and Dolby Digital, DTS) and what not.

No idea...

 

I say use the main component and turn it into a gaming processor for PCs and consoles...

FiiO needs to hire a native english speaker to take 30 minutes of their time and go through some of the product pages fixing the engrish. 

post #17608 of 25597

How much do you guys think Asus could charge for a xbox/ps3 compatible St or Stx mixamp? I personally would pay a premium, but I dont know that many others would. Especially considering the horrible sound most games come with.

I'd offer my services and expertise. Same rate as my current employer.
