Thanks to NamelessPFG, that recommended me that thread, it is very interesting.
Even if I own that set of Stax 202/212 for many years, I did not used them that much, but never wanted to get rid of them. I'd rather listen direct with my Martin Logan SSequel 2 electrostatic speakers.
But recently, I have started playing more FPS video games, and I wanted to use headphones to hear where they are all coming from; so after reading the Mad Lust Envy thread, I decided to buy an Astro Mixamp (should receive it in about 1 week or 2) to make the headphones Dolby and was going to get a set of Q701 or K701, as recommended by MDL, as being one of the best for competitive gaming.
This is where I remembered of my Stax headphones, sitting in the basement for years.
My question is: with all the great experience I read there is in that thread; before spending any money on a new set of headphone, would I find any advantages from a Q701/K701 over my Stax 202, strictly in a gaming environment.
Thank you in advance for your great comments.
I have a pair of Q701 and a Stax SRS-2170.
Don't even bother with the Q701 or K701.
While they are both quite good, they are not in the same league as my Stax system.
You will find that the AKG will sound a bit gritty and grainy with peaky treble after listening to the MartinLogans. Most dynamic headphones will sound like this.
BTW, I have a pair of Aeons myself.
