A new Sony MDR-HW700DS 9.1 lossless is now out. Looks similar to the MDR-DS7500 with the added channels, 4K pass through and ARC. http://store.aikotradingstore.com/sony-mdr-hw700ds-9-1-surround-sound-headphones/
I have a Denon AVR2113C that's connected to a Pioneer Elite. The speakers come off the back of the denon - they are wall speakers.
How do I know if the Denon HDMI is sending audio as well as video so that I can insert the DS7500 between?
I dont want to disrupt the existing speaker sound, just keep that low and use the HP.
I'm new here. Decided to register because did not found answer else where. I was thinking about Sennheiser RS220, but Sony MDR-DS7500 looks quit good alternative. The price is similar, but Sony gives much more options: 7.1 PCM, DTS-HD MA, TrueHD, +3 HDMI connections and more.
But not sure if DS7500 will be advantage for me, because I'll connect it by line in to the computer sound card. I'll not be connecting through HDMI to Console, BluRay player and so on... and probably will not get all this advantages. Besides Sennheiser RS220 - open type, so they will deliver more natural sound (I own Sennheiser HD555 open type for more when 7 years, and I still love them), and from the reviews I read about RS220 - much more comfortable and lighter.
The thing that concerns me more:
1) If somebody were experiencing micro drops with RS220, when the distance between you and receiver was longer or because of extra obstacles?
2) Are the sound and comfort from Sony DS7500 compete with Sennheiser RS220?
3) How long battery live from Sony DS7500?
Thank you for your time and help,
