    Wireless gaming headsets as good as Fidelio X1 ?

    Is there a wireless haedset for PS4 that is as good as my Fidelio X1?    I'm currently using a Fidelio X1 and a Creative BlasterX G5, and I love this setup so much I almost never use my speakers to play. I love how fun the Fidelios are. My only major issue is the cord. It's utterly annoying to...

    Philips Fidelio X2 : A Review by Baycode

    I have a question though. Tyll mentions in his review that the headphone wouldn't work well with high impedance tube amp. The original review from this post mentioned that the X2 works very well with tube amps. How do we reconcile the two? My plan is to get a Bitfrost/Lyr2 setup with my X2. Will...

    Using my kitchen scale, the X1 is 376g without cable

    Mixamp + HD598 + Modmic for a PS4

    Yeah. I'm thinking of the Bitfrost-Valhalla 2 to prepare for the Fidelio X2 that's been creeping up in Europe. What do you think. And by the way, did I do something wrong or was the unit faulty?

    Mixamp + HD598 + Modmic for a PS4

    Thank you very much. I had no idea.   I also want to point out that I've been able to significantly improve the quality of the ModMic by placing it further away from my mouth. It's next to my cheek now and the PS4 recognizes my voice better. I have to do some more testing, but things have...

    Mixamp + HD598 + Modmic for a PS4

      Well, since you came to this thread, may I thank you for your work on the gaming headsets. I'm sure you have already been told, but it's not only impressive, it truly helped me get the foundations to get started. What do you think about the bass of the K612 compared to the Fidelio X1?

    Mixamp + HD598 + Modmic for a PS4

    Well, I mostly have CDs, but there was a time I got songs on iTunes (they're encoded in iTunes Plus AAC 256 Kbps 44.1 kHz). What is your view on that? I also purchased DVD-Audio and a couple of Blu-ray Audio to try out. My personal impression is that it really depends on the mix. Some show real...

    Mixamp + HD598 + Modmic for a PS4

    You did it again! You brought me something I had never thought of and completely rocked my frame of mind :) Thank you!   First off, I misused the word "warm" when I wanted to say "bright". My apologies. A review of the glossary set me straight. So yes, I'd wish a little brighter sound when...

    The sad state of my EarSonics SM3 after three years

    Thanks for your post. I hadn't thought of it, but after reflexion, I think I'll just give up.    1. Although the drivers work, I have doubts about their reliability. After all, one of the reasons I had to send them back was a faulty driver (at least I think it was) and I have no idea how long...

    Mixamp + HD598 + Modmic for a PS4

    For Canadians out there, Futureshop has one Mixamp Pro left (there used to be two, but guess who got one ) and for the life of me I couldn't find one on any other Canadian website. newegg.ca and best buy.ca have both run out and only Amazon US has some, but between customs and shipping, you do...

    Mixamp + HD598 + Modmic for a PS4

    Please, allow me to run this by you for comment and criticism.   After research, here's my envisioned setup for gaming on a PS4: Astro Mixamp Pro 2013 Sennheiser HD598 Antlion Modmic   I was considering the HD650 at one point, but decided against it because I believe the Mixamp won't...

    What DAC for my Mac/SM3

    OK, let me give this thread a little bump.   After a little reasearch, I came up with a few options:   MagicDAC from Cambrdge Audio Headroom Micro DAC Musical Fidelity V-DAC NuForce HDP   Some are over my budget, but I would be ready to wait/save until I can come up with the...

    What DAC for my Mac/SM3

    Thank you for your post.   I don't wanna bore people with my life so I'll just go to the point. I'll be switching from an iMac to an MBA, but when I'll be listening to music, I will be in front of a desk, so it's true that I don't need a portable DAC, especially if they are cheaper or better...

    What DAC for my Mac/SM3

    Thanks for your answer.   I'm currently using an iMac late 2007, so do you expect that Apple changed the DAC and improved upon it, because in my case, a piece of classical music played low is horrendous, especially since I've had the custom sleeves (never noticed it much before that).  ...
