    Because we all have differences in tastes? For one, the 599 would have a another response, while the K702 is emphasized now in your details. Preferring a smoother response is generally what people prefer. That and you're not giving the K702 a good amp. The K702 has been known for at LEAST a...

    The X2 would be a better choice as it's more neutral. The 990 is a bit too leaning on bass and ESPECIALLY treble. And yes, the all variants of the 990 would get the same score. From my experience, the 250ohm was actually the least favorable of the 3, as the midrange was less audible than the 32...

    Height based channels are the most important improvement that can be made from what we get today. You realize you don't need more than 5.1 + height channels to get the most important awareness. So to get object based info with height cues would be even better.

    Sony is unveiling the PS5 on Thursday, and they said we should listen to the stream with headphones. I think they're gonna provide is with the new headphone-centric features at least in some segments. We may finally not need any external solutions!

    Schiit Gaming Dac/Amps 'Hel' and 'Fulla 3' Thread

    It should provide pleeeeenty of clean power and headroom. You're good to go there. In fact I think the Fulla would likely have more tyhan enough as well. Those aren't particularly hard headphones to drive. I'd say try thy the Fulla. The simplicity of it has a certain appeal over the Hel.

    You can always get something with a 3.5mm input and get an inline mic like the Vmoda BoomPro. IIRC the SHP9500 has a 3.5mm input so you can easily make it a headset. I haven't heard the 9500 so, I dunno how effective it will be, but I've heard nothing but good things about it.

    We can't just suggest headphones for the sake of suggestion. What you need them for, budget, fun, casual, competitive, open, closed, etc, etc. Too many factors.

    I dunno what you mean, it's still being sold. And by recommended, I wouldn't say that. I certainly wouldn't just force cram the AD700 down the everyone's throats. Sure if you want cheap and brutally effective at JUST competitive and nothing else. Personally, I don't like buying headphones that...

    Would you like to buy those headphones and send them to me for review? Like, seriously. I can only review what I buy and/or through the process of some companies sending gear to me. I make NO money of this, and my real life job is a joke and... not at a level where I can just buy things on...

    If you're trying to OUTPUT surround to another dac, then yes, like I said, surround sound CAN'T be more than 48khz. That's not limited to just Creative, that's everything via optical. The 5 channels fed to the G6 (to turn into virtual surround) were 48khz to begin with, so there's absolutely no...

    Destiny 2 has a fantastic sound all around. A great game for headphone testing.

    The X2 would be a better sounding alternative. The reason I recommended the 990 over it was mainly because its more bass and treble centric, while the X2 is less so. But IMHO, the X2 is a better headphone. I haven't heard the other one, so I can't say.

    The K612 is cheaper and more accurate sounding. I'd def think there are people that would prefer them too.

    Congratulations. I'm sure you'll enjoy them. They're a really great pair of headphones. Definitely one of my favorites.

    Can be tizz or sibilance. Headphones with emphasized S sound regions in sound can have this. D7000 has it, 990 has it, X2 has it, and others may have it. Another term for it is 'hot'. The 598 and many other Sennheiser headphones tend to subdue these areas, which is why you don't hear it...

    No. I mean, how would that be possible? The device is literally extracting audio from audio OUTPUTS and converting then into something the Bluetooth codec can read.

    Announcing the Audeze LCD-GX, the First Audiophile Gaming Headphone

    Sidegrade. It's a different type of sound. It's not just an LCD2 with a mic.

    You're misunderstanding. The usb functionality works mainly on pc. Not consoles. Consumes don't have the drivers needed to utilize the Mobius correctly.

    Don't be so hard on them. There are times when companies send you products that they want impressions of ahead of time, even if not all features are available. So we have to work with what we have. I say this as someone who has been on this side of things. It's like video games. People review...

    Better for gaming is questionable. Better for casual gaming, certainly. Better for purely competitive gaming, no. Would I still take the X2 over the 599 even knowing that? Absolutely.

    If the 598 is anything to go by for the 599, the X2 is a better headphone, IMHO. More bass, and a more dynamic sound. The 599 would be more balanced, but not as impactful and dynamic. The X2 is absolutely one of my fave headphones. I liked the 598, but wasn't THRILLED with them. I think...
