I guess I'll be comparing the X2 to the K7XX whenever the first drop ships out. I'll even add the HP200, I already own, to the comparison. Should be a very interesting audiophile holiday season

I too will be comparing the X2 with the K7XX.  I am going to have a 3-way shootout so to speak.  The X2, K7XX and the SRH-1840.  My guess is that the K7XX will win just based on its price to performance ratio. 
 
Round 1 begins today when my X2 arrives and goes head to head with the 1840.

Quick questions:
1. What's the difference between the old Sennheiser PC360 and the new Sennheiser PC 363D?

2. Does the integrated mic work on the PS4? 

3. Do they require an amp next to the mixamp? 

I believe the 360 uses two 3.5mm jacks and the 363d uses USB (built in DAC). You'll want to avoid the USB one for gaming with a mixamp. The one with two jacks works just like any headphone and mic.

looking for a new headset to replace my 4 year old sharkoon xtatic 5.1 (its basically tritton ax pro rebranded) while the sound cues are great for competitive once you adjust bass, rear, front etc.. it has pretty bad sound quality overall as its cramming multiple speakers into each cup.
 
my budget is around 300$ / £200  and it must be an all in one solution headset type. will be used for competitive + music + variety of games.
 
i have narrowed it down to astro a40 + mixamp
 
or
 
sennheiser G4ME one & used astro mixamp
 
or any other suggestions you can come up with. thanks

I'm very familiar with the 1840, so please share your thoughts when you do so! :D

Well, there are some nice reviews on the first page of this thread for the A40 and the PC360 (which is the same as the G4ME ONE).  Go read those and decide for yourself.
 
If neither of those works, I suggest the HD800.

I will just sit in my corner over here... not that it is related to console gaming.. but 980ti's are rumored for February release! RUMORED of course... I was going for 980's but I still need to pay off my car haha. Depending on the price of 980ti's, I may jump on those and if they are out in February.

Completely ignore that comment, elimelim. Not once did you ask for the "absolute best headphone for gaming." You even mentioned a budget, so such a smart ass comment was not necessary.

Totally love it when people try to be a dik, and fail...

Edit: Please leave the arsehole comments and replies to the professionals, around here (Me)!

Oke, but under specs it says on the Sennheiser website "connector: 2x3.5mm for desktop/laptop pc" and also in the box a 3D USB adaptor. So it does uses two 3.5mm jacks or am I reading something wrong?
