Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 7/9/2014: Ultrasone HFI-15G Added) - Page 1179

With such expensive price and boomy sound, I think its targeted toward mainstream basshead crowds (beats lover)...

It really did sound like something out of the Beats catalog, actually. I expected more from Sennheiser.

That's disappointing to hear...it's such a beautifully-crafted headphone too.

Actually the "full sized" momentum sounds ok. However the leather and hard clamp really turn me down, not to mention the pricing...

Too bad the on ear sounds like that. Those pads looks comfy.

Upcoming Audio-Technica ATH gaming headsets. Saw this over at Overclock.net

A decent gaming headset?!

No way. :blink:

I'm surprised they too so long to capitalise on the (relative) success of the AD700's. Lob a mic on and change the paint scheme.

Looks like they're going to retail for AU $279 here.

Not exactly cheap, considering the AD700X can be had for $100-150

The closed back one looks nicest and most interesting to me of the two

Looks like they fixed the loose fit. Both the open and closed versions look like they use cloth pads, though at different densities (not sure on the closed, but it didn't look like pleather to me).

Nice of Audio Technica to FINALLY put a legit headset out, seeing how popular the AD700 is.

I sorta wish they got in touch with me so I could review them.

I don't understand why AT continues to design the cups on their open headphones to NOT pivot vertically, but they DO pivot vertically on their closed headphones.  No vertical pivotting causes uneven pressure on the either the jaw or temple and is the reason why some people have to physically bend their AD700s to get a good fit.

 

 

The design is so similar that why not give them BOTH vertical gimbles instead of only the closed one.  Makes no sense.

 

 

:confused:

The Full-sized momentum sounded pretty good, but the HD558 was right next to it and it was clear to me which of the two I would buy...

Oh, new Audio Technicas?
I agree the continued omission of gimbals is weird, but I wonder if the width [between pads at the point they become parallel and thus sit flat on a head] is now appropriate for European descent sized heads... The fit looked pretty good as well as I could tell on that Australian's head.

Release is always at MSRP, hopefully street prices will be lower in a few months (or a year), but I bet the more widely accepted color scheme, mic, "gaming" marketing, and fit will keep the price closer to MSRP than the "unique" AD700.

A900X? ;D

Still using that horrible AT wing design? Count me out for sure. I absolutely cannot stand that headband for more than 30 seconds, even with the rubber band mod.

I like how one cable will work with the mixamp without the need for the adapter. 

post #17685 of 24556

So, the AG2 arrived today and I was about to do some comparing with the iCAN to see if my Mad Dogs do scale better with the extra power. Well, once I tried to turn on the iCAN... it died again... :(... and I wasn't able to do any comparing.

 

I just emailed iFi Audio so I'm waiting on a response as we speak. Chico, you say they responded to you pretty quickly, correct?
