Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 7/9/2014: Ultrasone HFI-15G Added) - Page 589

Added ruuku's notes on the Mixamp and 5.8 to the guide.

So I decided to eat that $70 difference and keep the old 990s. They sound cleaner, airier and more 'high end' than the new ones. The new ones sound DT990 Pro bass heavy, which is a good thing, but the vocals are noticeably more recessed than the other pair. I weighed in the pros and cons, and I felt the more balanced 990 makes more sense, as I need them for competitive gaming too. The other one had just a teeny bit too much bass bloat.

Sigh, the life of an audiophile. Costs me $80 more after all is said an done, for a less than 3% difference. Lol.

so the 5.8 mixamp requires an optional 3.5mm to usb cable for ps3/pc voice chat?  you can't just use the normal usb ports that are already there, like you can with the wired 2011/2013 mixamps?

No. It has to be that specific cable (at least for the PS3).

Mad, just ask amazon to price match it for you. I'm sure they wouldn't mind doing so.

It's an epidemic in this forum. LOL

Once you got a taste...

 

Unfortunately, the only cure would probably be an empty wallet.

No sadly an empty wallet is not the cure... as that leads to the selling of Cars and Windows :D which means were all DOOOOOMED

 

But, yar I really want them Dt 990s... any one wanna let me Demo for a day or two :D

 

ALSO, I fixed mah Foo Bar, those VST wrapers do NOT LIKE my pc... everytime I use them I lose Audio in my mmos... which means I can't game with SFX and my own BGM... it's either FooBar or game, BOTH could NOT send Audio out

 

So I just reinstalled FooBar minus the VST wrappers and Eltri-Q... so the stock EQ is enough for me tbh

 

ACTUALLY, there is ONE SOLUTION to spending money... there is this ANNOYING DJ that LOVES to sing over Old School Dub Step tunes... I FREAKING SWEAR, if he lived in my wallet I would  NEVER spend any money EVER again... simple because I just hate his voice SO MUCH... like seriously brev... it's Benga... HE DOES NOT NEED YOU TO RAP OVER HIS FREAKING MUSIC... stupid dj e.e

 

BUT HE could stop my money spending....

Well I can happily say my pc can emulate the Gamecube at 100% fps, I'm FINALLY playing through Tales of Symphonia again,,, because beating it 7 times in a row is NOT enough.

 

In edtion I'm going to try and emulate the Ps2 while im at it, so I can play all the other tales games! Wish me luck, and the dt 880s are very nice for Pc gaming ;3

Only online games (WOT) - that the best?

HE-500

HD600

AD900

?

And headphone processor?

post #8833 of 24488

The best thing you can do is go some where that let you try out the headphones. That way you can use your ears and pick what sounds good to you.

whoa whoa... no Dt 880 on that list :[ The Dt 880 is nice for games I think! And I play all my games on my Dt 880s and I do enjoy them, but teh HD 600 is another good pick. And the HE 500 should be the best pick but ofc it's the most expensive [although I'm not sure how the HE500 does with games... as it's really awesome for actual music] e.e

but yea this is the best advice! But my ears like RPG music... although I don't play games with thier natrual BGMS, rather I play with in game SFX them blast lossless quality BGMS in foobar :x so I like music orientated cans for my Rpgs as opposed to those with enough sound stage to make the sound of some guy crepping up on you from behind in a FPS

When you guys buy used headphones, do you put new ear pads on them? I assume condition is a factor too.
