Poorfag here, got some of these. Some of the best headphones I've ever had. For $60 it's up there with some of the more top-of-the-line headphones. Great neutral sound and excellent soundstage.

Also got a Mixamp for virtual surround sound with my PS3. Works wonders on games like MGS4.

are you retarded? Just buy open headphones. If you just use them indoor and not on public transport or so, there is little reason to go closed. And yes, soundstage is really important

Good soundstage is nice for all types of games. Useful for stuff like CS or whatever if you're into that, yes.

sure, you dont need graphics, if the mechanics are good, but Its nice to have. Especially if you listen to music too with your headphones.

>>256332585
yes, true, but it can ruin the fun, if you also listen to music with them. Soundstage is makes or breaks good live recordings

>>256332713
I am not talking about the simulated-tacticool-7.1-soundstage in shitty headsets, but the differentiation you get with good open headphones. sure, you might not NEED them for your flat-mixed vidya music, but vidya-only headphones with wich you dont listen to music too are really pointless. and like I said, for music and live recordings you do want a clear soundstage
>>

Had a headset before but it broke so I just got a seperate cheap microphone and got myself a rather cheap headphone.
Since I heard the superlux HD688b had the best price / value range I got that.
After boosting the bass a bit and lowering the treble some I am really happy with them, way better then those fucking headsets that were even more expensive.

Though I know it is stil plebe tier for most.

They are shit for vidya since they are the exact opposite of neutral.
Might be fun to have oversaturated bass if you listen to some speficic music genres, but not very good for all kinds of different sounds you will be hearing in vidya.

Can anyone recommend headphones that compare to the 7.1 headsets?

I have tried all of these shitty stereo headphones and they sound barely any better than beats.

Something with decent bass, crisp highs and low mids?
>>
>>256335257
I prefer a closed system. No sound leaking out, no sound leaking in. Plus, it's much less space, cheaper for the same quality, and the only thing I really miss out on is true surround sound, and headphones can give a close enough imitation.

Plus, portability is nice.

DO
NOT

get a headset. Headsets are fucking GARBAGE.

>What do I get with a $50 headset
$5 goes to the headphone quality. $2 to the mic quality, $8 to the build quality of it. $35 is marketing.

Instead get a superlux HD681
http://www.amazon.com/Superlux-681-Dynamic-Semi-Open-Headphones/dp/B002GHIPYI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1407167477&sr=8-2&keywords=superlux+hd+668b

There's no reason not to get a k702 which has slightly more sub bass.
Anyway you probvably should order them all or listen to them in a shop yourself.
Only use other people's opinions as rough direction since they are often influenced by subjective preception, brand loyalty or post-purchase realization.
I went for the k702 and have no regrets.

the cords are twisted up in a weird way. my friend said its fixable though im not sure how.

the left ear piece sometimes stops "transmitting" sound (quotation because i dont know what word i should use) randomly or from moving my head one way or the other, or moving the cord

And the right ear piece had fallen off. i can kind of stick its parts back into the headband thing but i have to do it everytime i put them on

the ear pad things (sorry its late and i cant think right) are worn and dirty and theres no place to buy replacements

Mine seem to work fine with the soundcard I am using right now. The only downside is that they lack a little in the Bass department, but highs and lows are incredibly well balanced.

Depends what you use 'em with.

I'm console gaymer moving to PC soon. I was using this setup paired with the mixamp and the mixamp hates 3rd party mics; makes them all sound quiet. From what my firends tell me, it was the best out of four that I had though.

On PC, there's no problem.

dumpster diving is actually a great way to get free food and items for that matter.

Food places especially due to how "safe" they have to be with leftovers. At the end of the night at any restaurant you'll find tons of uneaten food that had to be thrown out just because it was left out too long to be be considered safe by the health and food agencies

on a desk a coil is pretty useful, because it coils itself up when you're not very far from the device you're plugged into. I have my coiled cable attached to my ATR-2500 mic and I detach it from the headphones and leave it on my desk when I go to work, and just use the short cable.

I used to own the wired one for 3 years of use. G35s

Mic is fine, macro keys were useful as fuck, sound is what you would expect from a headset.

I just replaced those after about 2 and a half years of heavy use. The top cushion's cover will begin to degrade after about 2 years and the little zip-lock type thing they use to secure the pad to the headset will wear out after about a year. Other than that, good headset.

no
>>
>>256347628
Anything that has a good soundstage in general. There's a reason the ATH-700 is renowned as one of the best headphones for gaming. It doesn't sound too good quality wise, but for pure soundstaging there are few that can beat it (HD800 being one of them).

-Simulated- was the keyword. Virtual Surround works for headphones. e.g Dolby Headphone

If you are just streaming 5.1 straight to the headphones, of course it doesn't work. You would only get the first 2 channels (because stereo like you said) and miss the rest.

Virtual Surround is where you take a 5.1 signal and run it though a DSP (CMSS 3D, Dolby Headphone) which converts it to a 2 channel signal complete with proper positioning and audio cues. It's like you're listening to a 5.1 system hence the term 'Virtual Surround'.

I've used and enjoyed these for like 5 years now, although the microphone is broken off. Come at me bro.

exact same situation

>>256350593
I was planning to get LCD 2 but fuck man that weight is just retarded. If you spend 1000$ or more on headphones you should atlest be able to enjoy them for more than 30 mins everyday.

Audeze has shit comfort but not as shit as Etymotic.

I've heard them both, I prefer the 990 but the m50s aren't bad at all

About that 'foam hack', by removing the tape inside of the headset. How much does th sound quality improve, and does it have any negatives to doing so bar changing of tones?
>>
>>256352305
I'm not talking about headphones with shitty 5+ drivers in each ear. I'm talking about Stereo headphones - y'know, like most of the ones posted in this thread? - and using a Digital Sound Processor to emulate surround sound.

Where the hell did you get the idea that I was talking about something like that >>256349092 POS which uses what you said? Literally 5 drivers in each 'phone which sounds horrid.

Virtual Surround does work. It works with any stereo headphone and creates depth. Using straight-up stereo for games just gives direction, but not distance.
>>
>>256351857
my 5 year old cousin has the same ones and he loves them. Good choice anon
>>
>>256353112
I mean yeah, I like my M50s a whole lot, I just always thinking what if I had bought the 990s.
>>
>>256349380
I'd recommend the Beyerdynamic DT 770. If that's too expensive, you can get the Sony v6
>>
Overall pretty comfy to wear and the sound is pretty decent too.
On;y problem is the cord to sooo short, definitely made for portables and not home equipment.
>>
>>256327960
>using open headphones
>>
>>256354874
The sound is a lot spacier, and the bass doesn't take up space like in the m50s. Also, it's velour pads and open, so it's a lot comfier
>>
>>256335257
>speakers
>not studio monitors
>>
i have a razer tiamat 7.1 and it's alright, it takes a lot of fucking around with settings to get it to sound acceptable and i'm still adjusting it every day, my desktop speakers sound better and cost less
surround sound is nice though, it doesnt magically improve your skill but it helps me stay aware of my surroundings (not a lot of games using 7.1 audio though mostly 5.1 or whatever)
>>
guys, looks like theres a few audiophiles here

recommend me a good mp3 player (that supports flac)

my price range is 200 or lower, preferably lower
>>
>>256355274
The Clip + is really all you need, $35, small as hell, and with a really good sound quality.
It's mini SD too, so with a good size card you have plenty of space for flacs
>>
>>256355274
most newer smartphones.
>>
>>256355057
Are you trying to imply that open headphones don't sound objectively better than closed?
That would be a pretty stupid thing to do.
>>
>>256355214
>studio monitors
>not stage setups
>>
>>256355498
This.
>>
>>256355274
You wont hear a diffrence between flac and 320 mp3.

128 mp3 yes you can hear it
256 mp3 you can barly hear it
320 mp3 you cant hear the difference
>>
>>256355872
okay, then ignore the flac and just recommend me good mp3 players in general that arent phones
>>
>>256355274
>>256355498
>>256355721

Most Android phones in general, even from 2009 support FLAC but not all support 24-bit 192khz. Newer phones are coming that support it though. It's not the phone itself really, because you could always get a FiiO E07k DAC like I have and hook it into your phone's USB port; it's the Android OS that does not support anything about 48khz by default, so the manufacturer has to code it in.

If you just want an mp3 player though, the Sansa Clip + supports full 24-bit 192khz (at least im pretty sure it does) and has a microSD slot to add up to 64 gigs of additional memory.
>>
>>256356096
*above 48khz
>>
>>256356038
ipods. ipod classic is still the best one if you dont want AK240. Which you dont for obvious reasons.
>>
>>256356262
get out
>>
>>256356351
xD
>>
>>256356038
why not just craigslist an android phone like an S3 or S4? You can get them for like 100 bux and it will be vastly superior to an mp3 player because it has the ability to add USB devices.

Just put it on airplane mode or if you understand rooting you can flash a zip that removes the cell radio functionality, making it a tablet.
>>
>>256353714
I cant tell you first hand, sorry. A friend of mine doesnt want to do it and I just read, that it should widen the soundstage. The difference between 558 and 598 istnt big to begin with. You should definitely read reviews from people who done it.

Downsides are that you may not like the slightly different sound (its all subjective after all) and that you void the warranty afaik
>>
>>256356487
thanks for the idea, ill keep it as an option
>>
>>256326768
I got these for 10 bucks new though mine are white...I tend to only buy Skull Candy
I also have the Viking Hesh ones too.
>>
>>256353275
everything in the look
nothing in the sound
>>
>>256356592
I mean I'm not trying to call you stupid for not wanting that.

It's just from personal experience, I would want a device that not only lets me use USB DACs and amps but also allows me to use other features such as wifi syncing and bluetooth transfers, photos etc, and the ability to browse the internet and use custom media players.

An mp3 is just fine for some, but in the age of smartphones and mobile internet devices it's just kind of obsolete now unless you're absolutely wanting sampling rates above 48khz. I'm really not sure if USB DACs bypass this current limitation or not though, so don't take my word on that being something that's permanent

surprised these haven't been posted yet, there are usually a couple champs with these insanely comfy and great sounding headphones.
>>
I've been meaning to get a wireless headset to walk around the house while talking to friends or listening to music, any recommendations? Also how far can I get away from the computer before the sound goes away?
>>
>>256346045
I was thinking about getting these but in Silver.
Are they good for treble? most headphones these days are bass monsters, I dont like a lot of Bass.

>>256356534
Well, just did it then. Taking out those ear pads was almost as unnerving as installing a CPU due to the crunching noises, and I've heard horror stories about the tiny wires breaking at the slightest touch, so having to remove the tape was nerve wracking. Damn though, the sound quality is much crisper, and the bass is definitely improved. Your friend should definitely give it a shot, and the tape seems sticky enough to survive being taken off and on a few times if he doesn't like it.

ok im going to buy a sennheiser hd 598. is this the best "gaming" headphone for $140? i can buy a good condition one at that price
>>
>>256351857

im using these
got them on sale for 30$ shipped
the bass is amazing..

the mids are there, but the highs are static
and these are not comfortable at all
>>
>>256359156
>>256359761
As i said, i almost forgot where i was. Can't say i was surprised console fags don't know shit about anything but brand loyalty, but i just had so much fun playing and discussing the game.
Not that i have top notch headphones, i'm a poorfag and can only afford MDR V6 right now. But i hate overpriced brands like Turtle Beach, beats, Razer, Alienware and the likes to the guts.
>>
>>256360040
How much will 558's set you back?
>>
>>256360583
MDR V6's are just fine, they're used in studios a lot
>>
>>256331182
Got those for $100. Quality is damn good, especially when I need to hear footsteps.
>>
>>256345471
Yep
>>
>>256360040
AD-700s are better for gaming (positional sound), but the 598s have better sound quality. To be fair, the 598s are probably the 2nd best for gaming at that price point only just being edged out by the AD-700s. I went with the HD595s back in the day over the AD-700s and it worked great for gaming. Both lack bass, with the AD-700s having even less bass then the HD598s.
>>
>>256357471
Evereyone likes the open ones better for moar soundstage.
But those get way better bass.
>>
>>256360040
I literally just ordered a pair of 598's an hour ago, then found this thread. Nice to see errybody loves them.

The 558/598's were the only headphones in the price range I could find that were great quality and would be comfortable to wear with glasses. Can't wait.
>>
>>256357471
I tried them, but had to take em back. They were a nightmare to wear with glasses
>>
>>256332942
my negro, wearing them right now, so comfy
>>
>>256366337
>>256332942
So damn mad about the price scalping on these right now.

I want.
