A little off topic but for the iphone 4

Are the Etymotic hf3 worth the price difference over the Klipsch S4i?
post #397 of 5434

I think you may wanna ask about IEMs over at Head-fi, as this is mostly all relative to full-sized headphones. Daekwan owns the S4i and loves it though.

Mack, lol. Drunk typing ftw.

Robert, I've got the Klipsch S4is and they are excellent, but personally I think they emphasize the highs and mids a bit too much. Great in-ears for the IP4 and they were the best w/integrated mic+volume control until these came out IMO:

I liked the sound of the Sennheiser MM 50 more than my Klipsch S4is as well but they didn't have the integrated volume control. The MM 70s fix that and have an amazingly full/even range for in-ear, even without EQ enabled on the iPhone.

I actually don't find that to be negative, since for consoles, I can use spdif to a receiver, then analog out to the Sony box. The advantage is for pc, where I can use a soundcard or mobo analog out and still therefore get discreet 7.1, EAX effects, etc... PC games tend to not be encoded in Dolby Digital so spdif output is stereo unless your pc supports Dolby Digital Live

Thanks man. I'll go with the Senn's. Much appreciated.

No problem Robert, I know you'll dig'em with the iP4. I've compared them directly using the same source material with the S4is and I always hear more detail with the Senns.

Not to derail this thread any further, but keep in mind the Senns are an asymmetrical design...meaning one earphone cord is longer than the other. the longer one goes behind your neck. It's a Euro thing. I've actually found this to be an advantage. I can mow the lawn with these on and not keep catching the cord on the handle when I turn ;-)

The DT990/600 were at 229.00 at amazon, but since today, they are not anymore

However, at B&H they are still at that price with free UPS shipping

As a sidenote, I just placed my order muahahaha

Shin, they better be godly for non-FPS and movies (and some music), or I will ask my contacts in your city to make you suffer :P

I used them today in the Black Ops campaign and they were AWESOME. ;p

Lol, I used the CALs today to talk to a few of you guys. T'was fun, and had no problem using them in Black Ops, though the game gets weird on me and gets really muddy at some points and then just fine a few moments later.

Experienced it with all 3 of my headphones, even the K701 (which muddy it ain't....ever).

Damn, playing with 'Nerd and a few others made me want a quick, easy to drive headphone setup... >_<<br />
It literally took me 3 matches (in between) to set up my CALs. I played with the K701 the first game, the CAL the second game, and was finally able to plug in the mic for the CALs during the 3rd and so forth...

With something like the PC360, I wouldn't have that issue.

It's to the point where I don't even wanna add the E9 after the mixamp as I'm already happy enough with the K701 and DT990/600 off the Mixamp when I don't voice chat. The refinement in sound isn't worth the headache of moving my E9 from my desktop to the gaming area...

Of course, I'll be using the E9 as soon as I get my mic in... but I'd rather just not deal with it...

I want my E9 as my desktop amp for PC use, and not power amping anymore. ;_;

I realize two things:

I only use the K701 when I'm competitive which I realize can be done with even my 990s... maybe someone else would have better use for them?

I'm gonna put the K701 up on Head-fi for trade for the DT770/600 or PC360... headphones that get more use. I do realize the PC360's retail for $250...

Don't get me wrong. I don't think ANYTHING in the price range can match the K701s, but I realize that it's a waste to use them for just that...

I'm kinda disheartened really. Dunno what's come over me. I promised myself I'd never sell them but they deserve better.

If anyone here wants some K701s, I'd trade them for the DT770/600 which is $185 new right now on Amazon (so you can either buy them and ship them directly to me for no extra cost to you or use paypal). The PC360 which is that price as well from some vendor somewhere, lol.... Considering the K701 goes for $225 USED, I think it's fair. PM me if interested.

I'm gonna make some serious decisions here in saying that I plan on using my DT990s for music and gaming, the 770/600 whenever I need closed for any purpose, and hopefully the PC360 as my gaming headset in the eventual future.

Look what you guys made me do.

That's gonna be the extent of headphone love for me...

edit:

It's been set into motion...

Shin dude I am really enjoying my senns.
post #406 of 5434
Just a heads up for the next hour or until it sells out, Amazon is currently selling the HD595 headphones from Sennheiser for $119. Currently 67% sold and ticking up regularly. Too bad I can't afford it!
post #407 of 5434
Yeah if the Senns end up happening for you I think you'll really enjoy them...

So I put my copy of BO up on craigslist but people keep emailing me trying to get me to trade it for this or that.

I guess I will just keep it for now and just say F it...
post #408 of 5434
trade it into amazon, they give you a shipping label and everything.

I sort of wanna do the same. i dont see myself playing this game for a long time, and already used the damn zombie map codes... oh well. gonna be something i do every once in awhile. To be honest, I just don't game that much anymore.
post #410 of 5434
Why so much hate for BO?
post #411 of 5434
Dude I don't hate anything...that's a strong word ya know. I was just very disapointed in the game in general. Its a very slow moving game for me for one...also I really kind of had to laugh at the graphics. Call me a graphic whore or whatever but a game has got to be damn pretty for me to play it. I actually just got done playing it for about two hours with a friend from work and its almost like I have to use Marathon. If not I'm hardly seeing anyone on the maps. I dunno man...not for me. I think what it really boils down to though - is that MW2 was the first COD I ever played and I got it on the day it came out. I played the F out of that game...something like 60 days between my old account and my new one, so that's kind of my baseline for judgement. Graphically it can't be beat - not by BO at least. And the new currency system is OK...but if you think about it - remember how bad you wanted Fall Camo on your gun? Well...you had to get 250 headshots to earn that. Now you can just buy it. Kind of takes out some of the incentive and fun of trying to get certain thing - like camo. Anyways whatever, its all good...as long as you're enjoying the game that's all that matters. Hey Shin...I think I remember reading an article a while back talking about the two main studioheads from IW going over to EA. Have you heard anything about this? If so that could mean very good things for the future of FPS.
post #412 of 5434
Heh.. Ok, not hate, just dissapointment.

I don't have any cod yet and considering getting it for ps3. Didn't know was that bad, that's why I'm asking...

I'm not disappointed in Black Ops, I was just expecting more fast paced action. This game is definitely the slowest COD...

One thing I noticed is that this game is so balanced that it takes away player skill when going up one on one. This game is all about who takes the first shot. Before, you had a chance to battle. This one, not so much.
post #414 of 5434
Yeah man definetely has a slower pace to it...also man...just an observation and Shin back me up on this if you agree - but does the audio seems a little wack to you?

By wack I mean just a little off...I mean next time you throw a spy plane up listen closely.

Put it this way...there's other peeps that obviously feel the same. Sorry for the triple post.

I just picked up the AX 720's the other day but haven't had a chance to even open up the box yet. Can I use the optical output on my receiver into the mixamp for these? Or do I need to go directly from my 360/PS3 into the mixamp? I have both being sent via HDMI to my receiver.

I tried searching the other thread but didn't see anything. I'll have to search for the dongle that came with my 360 if not.

The audio is DEFINITELY wacked out for me. With all 3 of my headphones, I have experienced them going from clear to REALLY muddy, as if I was wearing some cheap $20 cans. It fluctuates, and it's just weird. In any case, set the audio to 'Theater' and 'Quiet'. That's the most correct audio for our headphones that already have virtual suround (mixamp, etc) mixed in. Surround Headphones is being procesed to slightly emulate surround on unprocessed headphones.

Guys, since you guys are my crew, I'm willing to sell you my K701 for $170 (+ shipping and Paypal charges), so it shouldn't be more than $190 or so. PM me if interested.

I'm really gonna get rid of the stuff that I hardly use anymore. Cutting back in a lot of areas financially too.

It looks like your receiver will work, but it's typically better to hook up your cables directly to your source. The less stuff in the audio chain, the better the sound.

Damn Shin I'd be jumping on that **** if I didn't just drop a few hundo on my new setup. I'm sure someone will scoop em fast...

I hope so. Seriously, they're nearly perfect for gaming. You guys that own it already know. I just no longer need to be that competitive edge... I'm tired of owning so many headphones for so little use that they actually get. I'm thinking on just having the 990s and 770s and that's it. Clip-on mic or Califone whenever I need it. Nothing that is attached to the headphones themselves, nor a headset (as much as I'd like to try the PC360). I just don't game that much anymore to spend so much for it.

Why aren't you playing as much?
