    Need IEM/Headphone Recommendations for FPS Gaming

    If OP is just looking for Audio only, there's loads of options. My issue was having something with a mic that works on the Xbox controller.

    Need IEM/Headphone Recommendations for FPS Gaming

    I have the Plantronics rig-400hx. I picked them up at Walmart for $35. I got them because my controller didn't seem to recognize the in-line mic on my V-Modas, and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. They're definitely not bad for the price. They're super lightweight and comfortable, and have...

    Sony MDR-XB*** series? What happened?

    That's crazy they're so much. They used to be dirt cheap. Not even some HD-580s cost that much when they show up for sale and they're FAR better all around. I think I may pick up some M50s or SRH-840s. I'll check out that thread though thanks.

    2013 CanJam @ RMAF (Oct. 11-13, 2013): One of the world's finest headphone audio shows!

    Can't wait. I only live an hour from Denver, but every time it's like a vacation only with some of the most amazing gear on this planet   I recommend checking out the loudspeakers as well - if you have time. They also have a huge room filled with vinyl, SACDs, etc. and every time, I've...

    Denver 2013 Impression Thread

    A week later and I'm just now posting in this thread.   Lots of great stuff and a good variety at that. I found a new appreciation for the Koss ESP-950, this is my third time hearing these and despite the complaints about bright treble they tend to get, I just don't hear it. I think they're...

    Quote: Probably not the Sonys. The ANC on that model is pretty usesless and if you're going to use ANC and mess with the overall sound, it might as well work. You can look into the MDR-NC40 for a cheap ANC headphone. They're not worth it at their MSRP of $100, but I found mine for about...

    IC: Colorado meet?

    Quote: That would be awfully generous of you. If you're willing to do that, that could be a plan for sure. Any day would work for me as long as I know well enough in advance.

    Quote: Right, well that's what I'm saying. If you wanted another cassette player and you can't get yours to work, they're easy to find second-hand and very cheap.

    Quote: If it's just a hair, it may just fall out on it's own or something. My 580s had a rattle in them when I first got them that was present on bass-heavy songs, but eventually it quit, so the hair must have rattled itself out or something. I also did blow through the grills to try and...

    Nothing's really changed but I did get a new (to me) Klipsch subwoofer a while ago, plus I'm bored so here ya go...     @Bee inthe Attic, I think that's one of the few cassette setups I've seen in this thread. Good thing you can find decent cassette players second-hand.

    Don't buy any FiiO product from SainStore on Amazon and how to distinguish a genuine FiiO E6 from a fake one

    Quote: RSA Shadow and Headamp Pico Slim, if you're looking for ~$300 amps. Loved the way my GR07s sounded out of the slim.

    Upgrade dilemma - please help!

    Perhaps this is a stupid question, but are you using lossless files on your iPhone? Or at least 320kbps MP3? iTunes rips to 128 by default. I mean, obviously your dedicated CD player will sound better, but 128 files wouldn't even be close lol.   Also, I would recommend the Fostex HP-P1 as I...

    Quote: Although music may sound fuller nowadays, because of it usually being mixed to a v curve and because older music had a mid-centric sound due to the limitation of the technology, the loudness wars has definitely affected modern music negatively. I like being able to hear subtle things...

    Quote: I don't really remember what the original Triports sounded like, but I've heard the AE2s and honestly, if I didn't have another headphone, and I got them as a gift or for a good price, I wouldn't be that upset. They're not as bad as people put them out to be. I think they're bashed...

    Fast, bright headphones with exceptional instrument separation for ~$100?

    Quote: I haven't heard the 440s but I assume the bass is just north of neutral compared to the 840 which probably isn't what OP is looking for.   If you want anemic bass OP, it doesn't get much more anemic than the AD700s. Instrument separation isn't amazing since they're fairly...
