    Best Open Headphones for Gaming? $300-$500

    Just an update since I started this thread. I ended up falling down the rabbit hole. I ended up buying the HD6xx, 58x, 7xx, LCD-2c, HD598, 4XX, TR-X00. I have to say the best cans for gaming out of those are the 7XX. Has wide soundstage and great sound for the price. For more intimate games, I...

    What do I need, to hook up my new amp/dac with sources?

    I'm new with amp/dac's, and I'm not sure of the best ways to hook up my sources. I just pulled the trigger on the "Massdrop Liquid Carbon X + SDAC DAC/Amp" and I'm planning of driving them with all my headphones. My sources are as follows: Apple TV (4th Gen)- Does not have an optical out; only...

    Nintendo Switch Headphone Power Output (ohm)

    Nintendo switch has great games for portability, but one thing it lacks is decent power output for headphones. I currently use Sennheiser HD-598 (50ohm), but the switch cant juice it up; max volume is low and you lose out on detail. I tried finding the power output for the switch, but I can't...

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    Both are great. 4XX has that spacious sound and more soundstage. 58X is superior overall: tighter bass, quality and quantity of bass, greater detail, easier to drive, less fatiguing. Not sure if I left something out.

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    I’m looking forward to trying my 58X with video games. Hopfully tonight. My previous to go cans were the AKG 7XX for the soundstage. I have two games that have excellent soundtracks to test them on. REZ Infinite and Wipreout Omega; both are heavily focused on music, with Rez gameplay impacting...

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    It seems very high-end headphones can combat these restrictions best, but never abosolute. If my memory serves correct, the HD 800 S improves in detail, but loses some soundstage.

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    It's great for a complimentary headphone. Headphones that excell at soundstage, lack in detail -- you can't have both. It comes down to preference, but to counter that, some people only want one headphone; sacrifices will be made.

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    Your the first person I came across that said the 58X aren’t great for rock. From my experience, that’s one of the genres it excels at, as well as hip-hop and EDM. Thank you for your feedback.

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    I disagree, with your main argument on 6XX being superior due to mids. One can argue 58X being superior due to bass, and here is why: in Hip-Hop producers like No I.D and Kanye West focus on drums and snares to give that deep punch, while DR. Dre and Swizz Beats use lots of bass. 58X produces...

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    @Tuneslover “If anyone is on the fence and wants a neutral sound signature with good detail that isn't harsh, grab these immediately. Even at $200, these are a good value. We live in a world where the HD6XX is already a thing (and comes with a nicer box), but that shouldn't detract from what...

    Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 58X Jubilee Review & Measurements

    I'm really enjoying the 58X, and thrown off that they are as good as they are for $150; I was expecting less since I bought them simply for mobile usage. I have a HD 6xx, so I'll do a quick comparison, and will be saving my full review for Massdrop. -58X are warm, and has deep bass while also...

    Best Open Headphones for Gaming? $300-$500

    Hey everyone, thank you for sharing and please continue. I just picked up the Sennheiser HD6XX (650), AKG 7XX and HE-4XX all from Massdrop. So far I’m really digging my AKG7XX for PUBG. What’s crazy is that you notice how bad gaming companies focus on their surround sound quality. Some games...

    Best Open Headphones for Gaming? $300-$500

    Thank you everyone for the info. They do look very good and enticing. I hope Massdrop makes a special version of the HD700. Looks sexii. Im curious how they compare to the 600 and 650.

    Does my Pioneer Elite Receiver SC-65 have the juice?

    I currently just picked up the AKG 7XX, and was planning to run them through my Elite Receiver which is sending music from my Apple TV (latest model) via HDMI. I'm new to headphones and was curious if my receiver is powerful enough to drive these. I noticed I can raise volume to max, and I...

Now my question: is this the best way to get surround sound through headphones? Do I need any more hardware to improve surround sound or am I good to go? If...
