    The Nameless Guide To PC Gaming Audio (with binaural headphone surround sound)

    @Monstieur I wouldn't need a DAC Amos, right? Also I understand correctly that it makes no sense to do any kind of AutoEQ on the headphones when I use Atmos? It will be overridden pretty much, I guess?

    best soundstage in closed back full size Headphones?

    Looking for closed headphones for surround sound. Audeze Mobius looks promising but I don’t need wireless nor microphone so would rather have that budget go towards headphones not addons what is the next best option for $400-500?

    Best headphones for virtual surround? ~$400

    I have Q701 + O2 + Soundblaster Omni. I am looking to upgrade Q701 to something that is better in terms of immersive sound and sounds better with virtual surround (Dolby DTS, SBX etc.). I am considering Audeze Mobius but I don't really need the microphone (I have Blue Yeti for that). Is...

    PCIe soundcard with good 3D sound (headphones) for O2 amp?

    Q701 headphones. O2 is just something I have - I don't think the mobo's soundcard will be able to drive the Q701

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Was my choice too but I heard it is super bright and ppl who recommend it always say they jumped through some hoops like switching several cables or something to like it. Did you like it out of the box? How bad?

    Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Guys whats the best chi-fi for $150? Tried Starfield and didn't like it at all - tiny sound with lots of detail lost. Also tried ZSX - liked it better, but it's a bit too bright to my taste, so kinda tiring. Most important things for me are soundstage, detail and isolation, also bass should be...

    thanks a lot! Any idea how their perforated sheepskin pads sound like? I am not a fan of velour pads skin-contact-wise

    I have Q701 for gaming powered by O2 amp with external surround from Creative Omni. It's good, but I would appreciate a bit more bass for the SFX without losing on the soundstage. Is there anything better than Q701 for FPS?

    @mbyrnes - more bass and same or bigger soundstage & detail I guess How does M1060 work in that regard? M1060 vs HD6xx vs k702? what would you say?

    Massdrop PLUS Universal IEM

    I am not sure I am that much in love with FLC8S - are they considered "not relaxed" ?

    2-pin IEM cable with GOOD microphone?

    I tried 2 Null Audio cables and their microphones are really bad (one cable also fell apart after a year - wow $99 well spent). Is there a 2-pin IEM cable that is reasonably sturdy and also has good microphone? And doesn't cost more than $100.

    Massdrop PLUS Universal IEM

    Would these be an upgrade from FLC8S ? Or to get to next IEM level from FLC8S I should really be looking at at the $1K+ range?

    Sennheiser GSX 1000 / 1200 Impressions

    Is anyone using GSX1000 with O2 here or any other amp (Schiit maybe)? Does it still provide surround? I have Q701 and seems like GSX1000 by itself isn't powerful enough for that. Or is it?

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (12/3/2020: Audeze Penrose Review added)

    What headphones are you using with GSX1000? Also do I understand correctly - I can plug GSX1000 into O2 (3.5mm out -> 3.5mm in) and still have all the surround stuff?

    Hey guys would GSX1000 be worth it as an upgrade from Sound Blaster Omni? I have Q701 now. I assume I would have to get O2 to plug GSX 1000 into it as well, so I wonder if GSX 1000 would provide a noticeable enough upgrade in terms of surround quality

    How significant is the upgrade from $300 IEM to $1000-1500 ?

    hmm so resale value is the main factor really with universals? I guess i can do universal + custom mold instead of the foam /silicone tip?

    IEM cable (2-pin) with microphone for <$100

    I need 2-pin cable with microphone and remote for my FLC8S. I bought the Null Audio cable a year ago and the plastic part around the 2 pins fell off. I was pretty careful with the cable and headphones (always have them in the rigid carrying box etc.). Is there a more reliable cable with...
