Well, most headphones will open up after 50-100 hours and many usually do leave their phones playing overnight. Burn-in is pretty subjective- some say it's a myth, some say it's science. Some say you need pink noise to burn them in. My advice? Just play your favorite music and listen them to yourself closely to see if they sound better yourself. 

Very helpful, thank you sir.

The best part about them is that they have a detachable cable that is very standard and can take any 3.5mm to 3.5mm you throw at it so no need to mod or stick mics on them. Personally they will stay with me for a long long time because of how flexible and comfortable they are. Its hard to describe the sound. They are basically a jack of all trades. They don't lack or excel in any ONE area but top to bottom do everything really good! 

 

I also like my M100's with the deeper XL pads but the X1's being open and more comfy have pretty much taken over as my gaming set. 

 

 

Thanks,

Still, I really appreciate it.

 

 

 

Not a problem, happy to help! 

 

Sure you can, they pop up here on the used threads all the time for under $200. Just keep your eye open and I'm sure you'll come across a pair soon enough :beerchug:

 

 

Good luck!

 

 

Thanks,

Thought i would post a quick update here. :etysmile:

 

So far I have bought the ATH-A700X and I am thoroughly impressed with them, although they do slide down fairly easy but I think its something I can deal with. I just got it today so I cant really comment on sound yet, but so far it sounds alot better than what I had.

 

Also I purchased a Xonar DX from my local computer store (http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX20617) and I am sofar impressed with the sound quality I am getting. I was just wondering however if something like the Xonar DGX  price aside would be more appropriate? (http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX40246) as I hear it is completely and totally build for headset gaming.

Hey glad you're enjoying the headphones! 

I haven't used those particular soundcards you mention so can't help you there I'm afraid. :(

Contact Casper @ http://www.head-fi.org/u/348881/ccasper-tfg and he'll turn any headphones you like into a headset w/ microphone.
