Hey mate, thanks for your feedback on this. I actually use the Q1ii with my old XMG gaming laptop and its a great improvement over the built in Realtek sound chip. Better resolution, more spacious sound, improved definition and just overall a completely different presentation. Also, I received my Sennheiser PC37x today that I bought from someone on eBay for like £60 which is a bargain in my eyes considering they're basically Game Ones without the fancy styling. They also sound almost exactly like the old PC360 G4ME that I had with the rubber cable. Music out of the Q1ii and Sennheiser PC37x sounds good, although I can't stop thinking they might be better paired with something less smooth. Like a Dragonfly or something, ESS related. I use my laptop for literally everything, music listening, music production / DJ'ing + playing games and competitive games occasionally, watching films. So that's why the PC37x is perfect for me in that regard, there really isn't anything else in this price range that comes close to the versatility and comfort of this headset. In fact the only thing I can think of is the ATH ADG1x which cost like £300. Sorry this post was a bit OT.
