anyone have the new Astro Mixamp 5.8 (wireless)?

I swore it was $99 at launch. Now it's $139. Anyone compare the sound to other systems?

oh, and does it still click when looking for a battery and plugged into USB?

So... I needed to sand a bit more and add a bit more compound to smooth it out further still..


Now I need to hit it with 2 more coats of Primer... then on to the full paint job. Need to get these out the door ASAP!

I'm not with the Crazies, They just like to stand next to me!

I have two thoughts.

1. You bumped a 10 month old thread when there is quite clearly a more relevant thread on the middle of page 1. (which was linked to in the last post before yours here)

2. I have no idea what you are talking about since you provided no link that I can see.

Care to go for strike 3?

I'm looking to buy either AD900s or 598s to replace my AD700s, which my fiancee has appropriated. I find the AD700s very comfortable. I have a big head, and like the wing design taking weight off the middle of the top of my head.

It would be a no-brainer to upgrade to the AD-900s sonically, as I like the 700s for the most part, and understand that the 900s mostly fix the shortcomings of those cans. However, I have read that the AD900s have smaller earcups, shallower pads, and non-angled drivers which together can result in the driver cover cloth touching the ear, which I have found to be uncomfortable on other headphones. I have also read that the cloth touching the ear is from people "wearing them wrong." Could any owners, particularly big-headed ones who've owned 700s, shed light on this?

Anybody own both 900s and 598s (ideally with a big head) who can comment on the relative comfort of them?
