Found a website where a reviewer said the HD600/325/HD570/HD590 sounded better then the F1's but added..
 
In fact, for movie watching or listening to binaural recordings, I would probably rate these as the best of the batch. And for those of you who don’t like the inside of the head effect headphones can be sometimes accused of, the Sony’s would also likely be you first choice.
 
Replace movie watching for FPSers.. The listed price was 225.00..

As it seems to be very good compared to some top of the line sennheisers, and still have that open design which lets me hear my wife easily if she talks to me.
"Replace movie watching for FPSers.."
 
I think he meant that as movie watchers woube need the same as First person shooters players. so those would be great for gaming

Really...
 
Could you exspand a bit more when you say " perfect set for gaming"...
 
Thanks

 

Thanks for that...
 
So he precives the Sony MDR-F1 the best out of the bunch for movie watching or binarual recordings?
 
What does he mean when he says this "Replace movie watching for FPSers.."

The only comparison I saw in this thread is vs the AD-700.  The fact that the AD-700 ($90) is compared to a much more expensive MDR-F1 ($400) headphone shows the VALUE that the AD-700 holds.
 
I would like to see a comparison of the Sony unit vs similarly priced headphones.  Such as the DT-880/990 600 ohms, K701,  (which actually cost significantly less) Sennheiser HD 600/650.
 
As far as holding value, many good headphones hold their value really well.  There is also the fact of name recognition.  Some people buy Sony just because it's Sony (not that I can blame them sometimes).
 
It is easy to get caught up in the new product of a thread that others have not heard before; however, I wouldn't not get overly excited until more information has been collected and sifted through.  Besides $400 is a lot to spend on an item you have never heard before and may or may not like.  Do you know if it requires amplification?  If it does add more money invested...
 
Sorry to be the downer.

For positioning in online first person shooters, the K701 have been treating me VERY well

My 650's sound nice for gaming, it have more soundstage and bass. The key is having a good source.
