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

    Hmm, I wonder if the Super X-Fi can be combined with the X7 or AE-9 so you keep the sound quality but use the SXFI's VSS capability. Have you tried emailing Creative?

    GoldPlanar GL2000 Thread

    How do they compare to the hybrid D pads that the GL2000's come with? Also, do these Brainwavz pads affect the soundstage? I wonder if any Dekoni pads may work with these headphones

    Other than being a bit cheaper, any reason to get the 8xx over the 800S?

    Ordered them on Amazon on January 16th. Received them January 29th. Plus, unlike Drop, you can actually return them if you don't like them. The restocking fee on Amazon is less than if you bought from Linsoul direct, plus they have a warehouse in the US for Amazon orders, so you don't need to...

    GoldPlanar GL2000 Thread

    I bought my GL2000's on Amazon. They shipped a month ahead of schedule, plus Amazon has a way better return policy than Drop. Also, Linsoul has a local warehouse in the US, so you also don't need to worry about customs if you need to return the headphones via Amazon.

    GoldPlanar GL2000 Thread

    Barring the fact they're 3x the cost of the GL2000's, what would you say are the differences in sound between them and the GL2000's?

    GoldPlanar GL2000 Thread

    So I compared the GL2000's vs my Fostex TH900's with the Dekoni Elite Hybrid pads. Also bought the Elite Sheepskin Fenestrated ones, but the hybrids turned out to be better. I gotta say, even with the enhancement to my TH900's, I still find myself switching between my TH900's and the GL2000's...

    Which Verite do you have? Closed or Open?

    Gotcha. Appreciate the insight! For games that support Atmos, do you typically use the Movie setting or Game setting?

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Just euthanize them now and get the hybrids lol. I honestly wish I got the hybrids right from the get-go.

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    In my opinion, the hybrid made the bass better and tighter, mids came out a bit more, and at least to my ears, opened up the soundstage a bit. Isolation is a bit better too.

    I'm seriously thinking of trying Redscape. Sounds very interesting, especially because you can tweak the "spacing." One of my main pet peeves with a lot of VSS software is that they're not very good at verticality. No matter if its DTS, Dolby or SBX, they're just not that accurate when it comes...

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    You weren't kidding! I tried both the Elite Hybrid and the Elite Fenestrated. The Elite Hybrid wins hands down. It really improved the sound of the TH900 in every way, especially over the stock pads.

    Isn't 600 mW @300 ohm a bit overkill for anything other than the highest of impedance HP's? lol

    Once my new computer is set up - I will be comparing the AE-9 vs. the G6. The AE-9 is a more powerful DAC/AMP than the G6. According to Creative, the sound quality should be better. We'll see what happens!

    GoldPlanar GL2000 Thread

    Mids are more a bit more forward (not by a big margin in my opinion) and the treble is bright, but not fatiguing like the TH900's. Granted, the TH900's definitely take the gold medal for bass, but the GL2000 isn't that far behind. Really impressed, especially for a planar

    I can't stop picking them up. Been using them for the past week and haven't even touched my Fostex TH900's. The ultimate test of these things is coming soon though. I bought some Dekoni pads for the TH900 with attenuator rings and I'm going to be comparing the elite fenestrated sheepskin...

    Set the "Surround" setting to anywhere from 50 to 67. I personally prefer 50, but that's just me. Other than that, EQ if you feel you need to until you reach the sound signature you like.

    Atmos is great for movies and music, and any games that are specifically designed for Atmos. Otherwise, I find SBX to be better. However, as of late, I've actually been liking DTS:X better than SBX - at least for FPS games.

    GoldPlanar GL2000 Thread

    I have to say that I’m impressed with them. They literally on par with my TH900’s, which is absolutely insane to think. I think the Fostex has an edge on bass a bit, but the GL2000 makes it up with a bit more open soundstage and some impressive imaging. Without EQ, I didn’t like their sound...

    That's pretty cool, I'll take them for a spin. Maybe I might get the fenestrated ones too to see if they open up the soundstage further

    Fostex TH900 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Yeah, there seems to be an inverse relationship between Fostex HP's and size/expense of amps. They seem to perform better on those little portable amps than the big setups, lol. For the Dekoni hybrids that you use, how do you feel they changed the sound on the TH900 vs the stock pads?

    1) Yeah, that's what I figured too. Some were mentioning 5.1, and I guess they were focusing more on music than games 2) It's definitely much improved now that the EQ is gone. I wonder how it compares to Redscape

    Did you try any other of the Dekoni pads? Like the sheepskin? Or the fenestrated version?

    GoldPlanar GL2000 Thread

    Yeah, I found that with EQ, they really do sound great. Without EQ'ing, I didn't really like it. I made them a bit more V-shaped to be more similar to my Fostex TH-900's. I have to admit, these headphones are impressive so far. The bass is very impressive, ESPECIALLY for an open-back planar...
