    Audio Technica ATH-AD900x Impressions Thread

    Okay, so I got mine a few hours ago. I'm a little tired, so I'm not giving them a full run, but from what I've noticed so far, they are doing well. I look like a total dork, but luckily that isn't the point :P.   Have any of you noticed that twangy sounds are especially, well, twangy? I was...

    PCI-E Sound card for Vista?

    Okay, one last suggestion before I order my ATH-AD900X's.   I was looking for a sound card for Vista 32x to help power my gaming audio. Originally, I was suggested this card, which looks fantastic except that it only lists Windows 7 and 8 as operating systems. I've e-mailed Creative about it...

    Open cans for gaming/music: ATH-AD700, ATH-AD900, Sennheiser HD598 or something else?

    @ PurpleAngel:   Okay, so I've pretty much decided on your original recommendation, which is the ATH-AD900X with the SB-Z.   Just to be clear, this particular sound card is the one I believe I was recommended: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102054   It'll fit in...

    Audio Technica ATH-AD900x Impressions Thread

      Okay, scrap that. I got some information from the ATH-AD900 appreciation thread... I've heard excellent things about those phones and from what I've read (so far) the ATH-900X basically extends the bass a little bit, which I would appreciate with all the electronic music I listen to.   My...

    The ATH-AD900 Thread

    Thank you!! Your feedback is super, super helpful. I admit that I miss oomph-y bass sometimes, but right now all I have is a lousy pair of Bose stereo speakers, and I haven't had headphones since my noise-cancelling Sennheisers (for portable music) broke ages ago. I'm sure that once I get used...

    Audio Technica ATH-AD900x Impressions Thread

    Hello! I was seriously considering the ATH-AD900's for gaming/music. I was looking for something super immersive that treated vocals, environmental ambience and electronically-laced music very well (with no worries about the bass response being super heavy, just "right"). Need them to be very...

    Open cans for gaming/music: ATH-AD700, ATH-AD900, Sennheiser HD598 or something else?

    Hello! Still having trouble trying to decide on a good set of headphones for my gaming/music. Both are equally important to me. I have a budget of about 300 for the phones, so unfortunately that pretty much excludes the AKG K702 Annies, despite the fact that they were recommended to me twice on...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (1/26/2021: Redscape Audio Review added)

    Hello! I am seeking a headphone to compliment both my music and gaming, and after a few suggestions in my thread at Introductions I was directed here. Both gaming and musical experience are equally important to me. I feel like I might have to compromise the quality of one for the other...

    Hello! Best headset for gaming/music?

    Hi Billson, thanks for your reply. I looked into both Sennheiser models and I read up on the HD598 especially, it looks like it hits a lot of what I am looking for.   Thanks also for letting me know about wireless - I was already leaning away from it because of the decreased quality, but...

    Hello! Best headset for gaming/music?

    Been reading around more, and I see that I can get adhesive or clip-on mics (like modmic). That takes care of the headphones vs. headset problem. If anyone has suggestions for a user-friendly, quality added mic, please let me know. I'm still curious about virtual surround sound for my gaming...

    Hello! Best headset for gaming/music?

    Thanks for your input PurpleAngel. I browsed the appreciation thread for these as well as some sound mag reviews and the official site. These look like they would be wonderful for my music! Unfortunately they are headphones as opposed to a headset, and I team game occasionally and also use...

    Hello! Best headset for gaming/music?

    Hello! I've been doing research and asking around on tech forums (which were a beautiful help upgrading my busted GPU), but I thought the best place to go would be a high-fi lovers forum for the most accurate advice. Despite my love of sound I'm relatively new to terminology, so feel free to...
