I thought the K550 was terrible from the demos...

browsing this forums, looking at reviews they seem to be one of the best closed headphones, i am curious how would they perform in competitive gaming

I've been using Vornado fans since around 2002. My first one, a 10in-ish model, was great and I had it on for literally 2 years and it never had any issues. I bought their tower fan a few years ago, which broke down after 2 years but they sent me a replacement within 3 days on their dime. It's only an okay fan but still better than the majority. Their circulars are the best and worth their pricier price tag.

Yo gents,

 

I've been using Evshrugs Mix-AMp 5.8 for a day now and I like it. The surround processing is batter than that of my NAD, and is quite three dimensional. I was playing Ground Zeros and head enemies driving up behind me in a jeep... behind me.. I was taken aback by that. It does have this binaural presentation to it. 

 

Though I had to purchase an adapter to use my mic with it as the mic input on the Astro is for a 2.5mm headset. Though my 360's headset now works on my PS4..

 

I might keep it..... *runs away screaming SNAAAAKE!!!*

Never thought I'd ever see Zombie praising Dolby Headphone. THE WORLD IS ENDING.

I just wanted to throw this out there... people are sleeping on the M500...

 

Really wish I didn't have to sell it. I'm packing it up so I won't be tempted to listen to it, anymore...

I've heard that the M500 is like a portable, more efficient Mad Dog. Any truth behind this?

I say that's fairly accurate if they're talking about the 3.2.

I have to say it extends a bit further in the lower frequencies, though... with slightly more coloration. Mids are nice and slightly forward like the MDs. Highs are as smooth as butter without being recessed... while still maintaining good clarity and instrument separation. And, oh, soundstage is the largest I've heard out of an on-ear, though I've only previously owned the M80 and Amperior in that regard.

Okay, we just wasted a whole hour trying to get chat to work on the PS4 for Zombie through the 5.8 with just the BoomPro. Not working...

It seems the PS3 usb chat cable is faulty... because chat isn't working on his PS3, either.

Hearing it "in the flesh" is different from samples, which is why I wanted you to be able to at least hear it since you weren't liking DH before. I don't know why your NAD doesn't do it as well as a Mixamp...

You bought a thingie for it?
The headphone jack is actually a smartphone TRRS jack. I had an adapter I forgot to send along with it that I bought separately, but if you have a BoomPro, that would fit right in there no problem. I currently have only the PS4 bundled mic thing (my Neewer mics became lost).

When you say 2.5mm output, the Mixamp directions label that jack as the connection for the chat port on an Xbox 360 controller, that's why that 2.5mm Male to Male cable is in there... I didn't think it would serve as a Playstation output too! Crazy, but... I guess it could work.

I like Dolby Headphone too.
Why do these snowballs taste like chat and ash and the souls of the damned? Crunchy.
