People complaining about PC360? Have you HEARD Sennheiser products? They are almost always very linear, warm, and non-fatiguing. They're not going to scream excitement. If you prefer the AD700, it's because you pefer a strong treble emphasis. They're complete opposites of one another. If you compare directly, of course the Senns are going to sound dull. Same way as any warm, smooth headphone will sound dull when you're used to bright headphones.

Honestly I just find Sennheisers in general boring regardless of them being dark or bright. Some reason they just fail to engage me, to me they lack what I call the euphonic factor. I personally can't agree with the notion that any smooth and warm headphone will sound dull if one is used to bright headphones because that hasn't been my personal experience.

Yep, the sound they deliver is second to none as far as i have experienced. I have been checking online every day for the Audio technica ATH-AG1 or ADG1. I hear they are the A900x's with a mic?

Well, my K540's broke when I wanted to listen to music after breakfast...

 

That REALLY f-ing blows...

 

But I have one headphone that I'm interested in, the Sony MDR-1R MK2. It's said to be like the 1R, only more refined and with better and more bass and sub bass.

Hi, I've Googled lots of different phrases looking for info but with no luck. With the phrases I've tried, this thread keeps popping up. Being this thread is now pretty vast I'd rather not read the entire thing and someone may have some info not contained in this thread.

 

I currently own a set of PX 21's (yeah I know they're not great, but it was my first headset and I've learned a lot since buying them), a set of AKG K240 mkii's, a DSS2 decoder and a Yamaha RX V375.

 

I was wondering if anyone knows of any products similar to a DSS2 or Mixamp pro planned for the future that will support DTS decoding. While my AV receiver has Silent Cinema, I'd require either a USB or stereo cable extension to simultaneously plug into the receiver and my PS3/4. That would be a bit of a pain having the cable going across as I have the consoles placed low on the right and the receiver high up on the left. Also if I wanted to use my AKGs from my bed, it's a bit of a stretch for the cable.

 

Any info on upcoming processors similar the DSS2 or Mixamp pro would be interesting to me anyway (like for example if they were to support lossless formats). If anyone knows anything, I'd love to hear it :)

If you need DTS for Blurays...you could just set the ps3 and ps4 to bitstream mix...it will basically convert DTS to Dolby.
post #22135 of 24808

Will that just not come out as stereo? Being I wont be using the AV receiver, the DSS2 will be my only option. I think it only supports Dolby otherwise it just does stereo.

 

Edit: Am I just being dense? Plus I should have noted that my primary concern is games.

Not understanding why you need dts for games, when Dolby Digital is embedded in all games.

And no, bitstream mix changes the dts signal tk dolby digital, which the Mixamp devices convert to proper vurtual surround. Of course, many movies don't do much surround cues to begin with so the effect is muuuuch more noticeable for games.

I'm listening to a 18 euro Philips SHE3590 in-ear earphones ($10 in the US) with the 16Khz boosted.

 

I swear, it sounds ALMOST as good as my K540's. They only have more recessed vocals, and a more boxed in sound and less detail, but the clarity is nearly the same.

post #22138 of 24808

Sorry, didn't get a notification that you'd replied for some reason.

 

I didn't realise that all games had Dolby or that there was a bitstream mix option (I generally watch DVD's on my PC and only own a couple of Blurays).

 

Maybe I should have researched more, it was just that Fifa 14 and BF4 both had the DTS logo quite prominently displayed so I thought DTS may be more common in the future. I therefore thought it might be worth looking into a decoder which will do both Dolby and DTS.

 

BTW I was just checking out your Youtube channel :)

I wasn’t complaining, I was asking for advice with a disappointing purchase.  And no I haven’t heard a Sennheiser product which is of course why I came to this guide.

 

I think everything said in each review is 100% correct.  Where I now differ is in the competitive rating of the PC360.
