Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 7/9/2014: Ultrasone HFI-15G Added) - Page 1502

Well, after a few minutes, I realized the PS4 is not for me. It's heavy, leaves a dent on the top of my head, and keeps sliding off.

Maybe the Xbox One is more comfortable?

The XB1 is even bigger, heavier and dorkier looking when worn.

The Wii U looks the easiest on the head.

edit: thanks! didn't even notice.

 

I personally find the HD6x0 models very comfortable. The oval shaped cups do a great job of hugging behind your ears and hold the headphone in place. From memory, I feel that the A40 has a smaller opening in the pads than the Sennheisers. I can't speak to the X1, as I've not experienced it yet.

 

Have you tried stretching the headband over some books for several hours? That often helps reduce clamping and improve comfort. I've had to do this with some headphones.

I have no idea how you even think this will be comfortable. Why on earth would you want this thing, MLE? I imagine it'll be extremely side heavy and put a TON of pressure on the top of your skull. No thanks!

Maybe Facebook will buy the idea and turn all our dreams into nightmares.  <3

Knowing Razer's prices, you would need both hips and a kidney.

Assuming you haven't changed your line of work, I would imagine a hip can be incredibly important to your employment. :p

 

In all seriousness, I'm not sure I want the project Christine. I love the concept of a modular computer, but the cost of something like this would be so much more than just building a liquid cooled gaming PC and upgrading parts every year. I'd personally save the additional $400-600 or spend that on better parts.

The part about MLE not being angry or irrational was certainly a reference to yesterday (I'd say frustrated would be more concise, as superficially my question did appear to be a case of not having read the first page when in fact I had).

 

DoctaCosmos then continues straight on from there talking about how people should read the first page instead of asking questions. This lead me to believe that he may still be under the impression that I had made the mistake of not reading the guide at the beginning, instead asking a question about something already covered.

 

My post was not written in anger, but simply to explain what had happened. I realise that my post appears defensive but it was not intended to be (hence the lack of exclamation marks or capitals).

The idea behind Project Christine was to make it subscription-based so that you're spending about the same amount either way.  Like instead of spending $600 to upgrade your computer once a year, you pay $50 per month and get upgrades as they are ready (in your price bracket).

 

It's an interesting idea.  I think the subscription model was more innovative than the hardware model; they just needed the modular hardware to make the subscription service work.

I guarantee that is incorrect. If you heard them, you will know that soundstage is a whole different class with open headphones, the sense of distance and realism.

I think I've just found one of mine (I've heard the album plenty of times but never through headphones).
Which one? I like Andrew Bird's "Armchair Apocrypha" and Wilco's latest album. I also have a bunch of random songs for testing in a playlist I've used for a few years. I also hold CoD4 and Halo:Reach as standards for game soundwhoring.

I don't like ones with multiple drivers. Haven't yet heard one that didn't suck.

I'm in the same boat right now. I was thinking of getting a $300 Asus IPS off of Amazon, but then I was in Best Buy and some other IPS model they had on display (not the same one), and I saw what I guess is ghosting... When I simply scrolled the tiles in Win8 start menu, there was an effect on it that looked like the effect in that 90's TV show "Ghost Writer," the tiles had like a slime trail or shadow that trailed behind it as you moved. That would drive me NUTS with an FPS!! Is that a "real" thing that would be common with ALL IPS screens, even one with a 5ms response time? Cuz the color would be great and practical for photography, but 90% of the time I'd be using the screen for gaming!

Nuff said.

I was using a 24" LED Syncmaster too and this is an awesome IPS gaming display. World's first possibly. 5 years warranty.
I've not heard of this before, tell me more smily_headphones1.gif

I think I am going to spend a bit more and get the best one I can..might get a 21.9 one but not decided yet, I have my Samsung monitor set on game and it will have to do for now!

The Asus monitor I looked has a 1:1 scaling option. The whole reason I'm looking at new monitors right now is my x1050 monitor from Dell won't play with my PS4, even when I manually set it for 720p.
