What gaming headphones to buy? - Page 355

post #10621 of 10626
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 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?
