Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 7/9/2014: Ultrasone HFI-15G Added) - Page 1441

If I got the 6 then I would get the combo available to me with the ef6 for 1800. The air and imaging is what made me curious about it with gaming. It was the first headphone I'd heard with that much out of head height and width. It was freaky

So... It would kinda be like emotional good rather than logically good, like a triple decker hamburger with cheese, mayonnaise, and 6 strips of bacon, topped with a low calorie bun, then dipped in chocolate and deep fried.

Don't think I'd agree with chocolate on a burger, it would completely mask the taste of that wonderful, succulent beef. I'm not much of a sauce person either. Prime burgers should be served with light sauce if any to allow all the flavors of the toppings to shine through and merge into one mouth watering palate quencher.

 

I think the worst sandwich that I eat health-wise is the Elvis: creamy peanut butter, sweet banana slices and thick cut fatty bacon on your choice of bread. It's definitely emotionally good but terrible for my diet. Sometimes emotion just trumps logic and there's no harm in giving in a little.

Does anybody here have any experience with the Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear headphones?

So tell me how I was playing with the DNA PRO today doing well in Ghosts, as usual. So I got tired of it, and switched to the A30s... and played with them for a good 4-5 hours.

No lie, today is the first day ever in Ghosts where I was consistently getting more deaths than kills. Like... BADLY. I know myself, and I know I'm pretty good at this game. Well, believe me when I tell you, I thought I was plahing in stereo most of the time. It was so hard to gauge where enemies were coming from with the A30s. Also, my friend was telling me that the inline mic sounded better than the boom mic that it comes with. WTF.

So...yeah... I got used to the A30s for tv shows in stereo... and that's it. It was...not good for gaming for me, and I'm being kind. At one point I had almost 20 deaths. Considering I almost NEVER go into double digits, getting almost 20 was a sign that the A30s were really messing up my game.

I'm disappointed. I went back to the DNA on ear, and went back to destroying people. This sounds like hyperbole, but it isn't. The A30s just did not work for me.

For gaming, they shouldn't even be considered an option.

Why you using on ears? Surely mle has the nicest pair of headphones available for gaming

Monster has been sending him headphones for review purposes.

post #21610 of 26356
No personally owned headphones? No truly musical headphone that doubles as a good gaming headphone? Or am all I'm going to read about headphone wise is what manufacturer sent him headphones for that month... No I'm not trying to be negative just fishing

Well, on ears CAN be good enough for gaming. PX100-II did well for me, though I didn't review it because it was modified as a clip on and didn't sound as bassy and smooth as it did at default (the headband clamping force basically pushed the drivers closer to the ear, increasing bass vs the clip ons just letting them rest on my ears.

The DNA On Ear has served me well, despite it it being warm and bassy. Certainly a leap ahead of the A30s. The Ultrasone HS-15 that @calpis gave me have also done well enough for gaming, despite it having some notable recession (still very early testing). It's S-Logic = Dolby headphone has paired well, in terms of soundstaging/positioning. I'd really like to try the HS-15g at some point, as it's an open version of it.

I'd wager the Momentum On Ear would work about as well as the DNA on ear, hopefully.

It's a shame I wrecked the PX100-II. I would've eventually reviewed them.

Personally owned (aside from Monster DNA OE and Pro):

A30s
KSC75
broken/modded PX100-II (one working driver).
HS-15

Out of all of these, the DNA Pro takes the cake, easily. One of my fave sounds.

BTW, all of these (except the Pro) are on ear (if you count the KSC75, which I love for all things).

I've just never found them comfortable for long. I figured you'd have a go to over ear

The Ultrasone HS-15 is easily among the top 3-4 headphones in comfort for me. Headphones shouldn't ever be that comfy, lol.


Yuin G1A
KSC75
Ultrasone HS-15
MA900

Irony here, is that all of these are on ear, except the MA900 which does rest on the ear in a bit.

I'd say it may beat the MA900 in comfort. It's even lighter, and the padding is stupid soft and airy.

Could you update your channel please, you don't have many videos!
What headphones are better than the monster DNA for hearing footsteps? I don't play Ghosts, just MW2. Tbh, I don't see how people like Ghosts, especially having played the prequels.. (except MW3, worst game IMO). I think ghosts is a lot more difficult than MW2 and more annoying. I was thinking of getting the HD809 to use with my PS3 but I don't know how I would connect it through a good amp. Do you use the astro mixamp pro?

Speaking of on ears, there is one last portable on my radar that I'm willing to try. If these don't work out... I guess I'm going to have just deal with IEMs on the go.

I say that because these have been reported to have QC issues similar to the K545. Its really a shame... because I was absolutely loving what I was hearing from the one working cup on the K545. But after two duds, it has led to to look elsewhere...

Hopefully, there wont be any issue with these...
