Would it make sense to buy Q701 ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I already have the following headphones:

 

A700X (surround gaming, music)

DT 990 (multi purpose)

HD598 (surround gaming, music)

Grado SR225i ( for heavy metal)

M-Audio Q40 (for bassy music)

 

 

Would it make sense to add Q701 to the list ? Will it give me better "fun" and "surround sound" or does it have the upper hand in a certain genre of music ? if you were to replace an item in the list with Q701, what would it be ?

 

I mainly play single player FPS games and some RPGs, I want to hear the enemies/monsters that are coming at me from different directions or perhaps hear the noise they are making from a near or a far distance..Would the items in the list do what i am looking for ? do you have any suggestions ?

IMO, not even a little.

You might like the Q701 a little better for surround sound gaming, compared to the HD598 & DT990.

But as I do not play FPS or own the Q701, my opinion on FPS/Q701 should not count for much.

You might consider asking your Q701 questions in this thread.

Heya,

 

The Q701 doesn't make sense to me with the HD598 in your line up, as they're quite similar. The rest of your headphones are different enough to warrant trying it.

 

It's no more fun than the HD598. Both have big sound stages, so no gain there either. It's a neutral headphone. The DT990 is "fun" and you already have it.

 

Very best,
