Oh, I believe you. I think it's the same problem I had with the Slyr and using it with other cables. Some worked, some didn't. It's odd. Since it's inconsistent, I won't put it on the list, until someone tests it with the BoomPro itself.

i've seen soooo many videos of this guy.....I WOULD LOVEEEEEEE to see a video where he gives nothing but praise to a headphone. He always complains. Mr Debbie downer if you ask me.

What do you mean test it with the Boom Pro itself. I have the Boom Pro right here with me. They didn't work for the PSB.

Ah ok. And umm, he doesn't always complain. He just has an ear for what sounds and measures well. The K812 did neither for him. You can even see the ragged treble and impulse response on the graphs. He called it like he saw it. Graphs are part of an equation, but they are a good indicator. The K812 has a fantastic balance...up to the treble, where it becomes... not so high end.

Tyll is well known and respected because he knows his stuff. I would rather believe someone that can nitpick a headphone's shortcomings, rather than brushing them off and giving nothing but positive impressions. Especially on a $1500 headphone which shouldn't be having these problems in the first place. In fact, I've been told that he's like me, we try and see the good side of every headphone. If it's bad, we'll say why. Like my review of the DNA Pro. There's nothing to hate about the sound (one of my fave sounds on ANY headphone), but plenty to hate about the build quality and comfort. It's a Monster product, and they sent me these headphones, but I'm not restricted in any shape or form on my opinions. I won't brush off statements that I feel are true. Tyll won't either. He may keep it to himself unless he gets asked, which is the case with the K812.

BTW, he loves the Fidelio X1 AND it measured well.

Also, you're not getting AUDIO at all? Or just mic audio?

PM me  your email. I took video proof with my iPhone. Just would like to show you. I took a look at the FX1 and they look great too but again I'm in a gym with my headphones 80 percent of the time. Not until recently I'm going to use them as a gaming set as well. I don't think the open headphones are something i can use unless i was always going to be somewhere nice and quiet.

I wanted to give a quick update on my Astro wireless mixamp, X1 + BoomPro setup. I installed a rechargeable battery about 2 weeks ago and charged it to max capacity. I've been gaming on my PS4 at least an hour a day and the battery has yet to die. Amazing battery life compared to 3 AAA batteries which lasted almost 3 hours max! Wow! BTW, X1 + BoomPro + Astro wireless mixamp = amazing. If Sony releases a firmware update that raises the chat volume when using the USB PS3/PC chat cable, this setup will be perfect.

Hi all I have just started on headphone journey I have just purchased as set of astro a40's second hand (around 2 months old) to get the mixamp (2013 mix amp pro).

I am trying to decide if I should I dive in a buy a set of ad700 straight up and sell the astro headset as they line up with my budget or wait and see how the astros sound? I mainly play FPS games.

I will be using them on a xbox one via a hdmi audio extractor so I can get 5.1 until Microsoft sort themselves out.

Any thoughts?

Is the Creative Aurvana Live! 2 compatible with the V-MODA Boompro ? How about HD598 ?

 

 

 

Also, How do CAL1 and CAL2 compare ?

The Creative Arvana Live! 2 is a headset. Already has a mic.

post #21282 of 26217

It has detachable cable, the mic is in the cable i think. so I am wondering if it is compatible with Boompro ? is CAL!2 significantly better than CAL!1 ?

 

 

and how about HD598, is it compatible with boompro ?

post #21283 of 26217
The original CAL! (designed by Fostex) sounds better than the CAL2!, though I haven't seen any reviews on their new gold and platinum offerings.

The HD598 has a special connector, FWIR not compatible with a BoomPro
