  1. Here's Why The Audio Technica ATH-M50X is a Terrible Headphone

    Over here its never changed, even from the m50s till the m50x, its priced at $200, whereas the dt770 is around 175-200 depending on the seller. For amps, they are quite easy to drive, i got the 80 ohms version and even my iphone 5 can drive them up to slightly uncomfortable level, my pc also can do the same with side note: that newer mobo's can power this headphone quite easily compared to older ones.
  2. ASUS CORSAIR MSI ripping off customers

    Hmm... this is very odd especially for me who used to work in one of the largest pc hardware distributors here. Usually if someone gets a bad item, DOA especially 5 times, we manually check all the defective units infront of the person including a BNIB unit to make sure everything is alright. But after we provide the new unit and testing it out infront of the person and it gets spoiled then it must be the users fault but this is a very very very very rare case..
  3. Friend's looking for closed-back headphones from $100-150

    Go for Takstar Pro82, you can get it from aliexpress or amazon, they have a bass slider for him to fiddle around
  4. Here's Why The Audio Technica ATH-M50X is a Terrible Headphone

    I know few people still recommending them, i mean they're okay if its cheaper like around $100 or less (ideally imo) but in my area, they're called like "holy grail" here and sold at $200 +/- whereas dt770 is around the same and sometimes cheaper here..
  5. Friend's looking for closed-back headphones from $100-150

    Takstar pro82 (if you can find it) is a good deal imo for closed back (around $90-100 +/-) DT770 is also good and you can do a detachable cable mod to make it more versatile and increasing durability for the future. Or Stretch a little bit for this ATH-MSR7 (this is kinda flat and good option for monitoring purposes)
  6. Sennheiser GSX 1000/GSX 1200 pro?

    Personally i feel spending alot for 7.1 virtual surround sound is not justified at all, especially in terms of gsx1000 which is kinda costly. Reasons why: 1. You can download it for free OR purchase the program for like $10-15 (dolby from windows store iirc) 2. Its a software oriented (back to point no. 1), hardware to simulate this is kinda waste of money. Yes, i can differentiate between the software but the difference are kinda marginal and games nowadays are improving with their surround sound capabilities from their own sound engine compared to the past. 3. There are better choices to improve your experience (like separate dac/amp ex: schiit fulla 2) and just download or purchase the program (point no.1) to compliment it. Not saying it sucks, its just my personally opinion tho. You can try point no.1 first then move up the ladder should you choose to.
  7. Microphone like the Antlion Modmic 4.0

    What about massdrop mic? its a copy of modmic at a cheaper price..
  8. Best headphones under 500 euro?

    Around $399 iirc. But will only be sold via massdrop. https://www.massdrop.com/buy/fostex-x-massdrop-th-x00
  9. Best headphones under 500 euro?

    I reckon TH-X00 might satisfy your itch..
  10. Ah ic, thanks for the clarification my man!
  11. Nice setup. But just my 2cents, you know you can just plug in the modmic straight towards the motherboard? cos using the usb soundcard will not benefit you and will just add more un-necessary things.
  12. Best 50ish dollar gaming headphones

    HyperX Cloud Core is a great option if you can get them. WAAAAAY better than Cloud Stinger. But with that being said, i will go for SHP9500+vmoda boompro, no gaming headset will come close to it period, with very very few exceptions, do note they are open back headphones so they will leak sound in and out of the headphone.
  13. In some places, the headphones you are looking for can sometimes be cheaper or at the same price of the Fulla 2. IIRC, i saw dt990 at $100-120 range (for a week) last year at Amazon US. With that being said, he meant, its not advisable to spend more on the amp than the cost of the headphone itself. Its better to get a better headphone than spending more on the amp/dac.
  14. Is there a better 7.1 soundcard than Sennheiser GSX 1000?

    Will wait for @Dackzy, but from my experience, ohm is not the absolute factor that determines the power you need to drive the headphones. Fostex T50rp mk3 are really fucking hard to drive for example and they are 50 ohms. You will get the idea once you drop into the pit of headphones
  15. DT 990 Pro 250 VS HD598 VS Ad-900x

    For more immersion and great imaging while gaming i will go for DT990, great bass but with slight treble which not everyone can handle and for more laidback and overall use headphone i will get HD598., they are great for games too.
