  1. That's true.. You can try it if you want.. I've never tried it and also i never had problems with the headphone at all regarding germs, cos i know i'm the only one using it...
  2. You mean wiping it right? I usually wipe it with damp cloth and clean with dry one afterwards..
  3. Sennheiser HD558 / ATH M40X is a good choice. If you have doubts, just look up z-reviews (pls dont kill me ) on youtube and listen to the sound demo. Its not the most accurate sound reproduction, but it will provide a general idea of the character of that headphone. Note: HD558 are open backs and not ideal for on the go use. M40X are closed backs and quite portable. EDIT: Few words.
  4. Oh your location says otherwise.. DT770 80 ohms are great, i love that headphone. Very fun, great imaging, nice soundstage for a closedback and bassy headphones. Built quite sturdy actually.. You should be good with it imo.
  5. Just curious, if you're in the states, shouldn't it be easy for you to get the dt770? I mean amazon/ebay has plenty of them.
  6. headphones

    Denmark? Let me summon a friendly neighbor for you. @Dackzy He should be able to help you out. Btw, if there are any headphone store where you can try the headphones before purchasing, i would like suggest try K612 pro first, see where it goes from there.
  7. You mean HD518 + a boom mic and sold at a hefty price? then yes PC37X takes the cake imo, HD598 drivers at $120 only. Wished i didn't passed up on those, could be my go to "gaming" headset.
  8. Try a good battery then? something like Sanyo Eneloop might solve the problem. They are rechargeable and works well for everything i use at home..
  9. I would go for the Beyerdynamic DT770, excellent bass for electronic music, fun for movie and gaming too.. They're better than m50x imo BUT doesn't come with a detachable cable..
  10. Under $100, i would usually go for: Philips SHP9500 + Vmoda BoomPro or Hyperx Cloud Core / Cloud 1.. Both of them are good at their price point. DAC/AMP is not necessary cos in that budget headphones, the difference is very marginal and not worth paying the extra cash. Its better to upgrade your headphones..
  11. The improvement will be small and not justified if you purchase the extra dac/amp. It will be wiser to get a better headphone than investing on an amp/dac for m40x.
  12. IIRC, g4me series use HD518 drivers and attach a boom mic to it and sold as a different product altogether. If you're budget conscious person, Philips SHP9500/S + vmoda boom pro will be absolute best solution at the price point. I would tell you to get these first, if you don't like it, upgrade and upgrade from time to time like me DT770 is super fun for gaming, although the bass can be too much but will be fun for movies, DT990 is the same but open backed with less bass but a little bit higher treble for some people.. TLDR: go for shp9500+boompro.
  13. Any price? Please go ahead and get the Sennheiser Orpheus. Unless you be specific on what you want, likings and how much you want, people will either troll you or give you viable suggestions.
  14. HD558 is a great choice! Have fun
  15. We here prefer headphones more than headsets, well majority of us here, they provide better value with the performance provided. Mic wise we like standalone/separate mic.. Cloud 2 are better value and performance compared to revolver imo. Revolver is too pricy and the difference in price and performance is not justified. I tried all the headsets from HyperX even the revolver s, clouds core/1/2 are still better..
