if you buy the Fischer Audio FA-003 please tell us your impressions.
It's between those and the Denon AH-D2000's. I do like the Fischer Audio FA-003's since they are different and not everyone has them.
Meh, reviews are overrated. The only way to know if you will like it or not is to listen first hand.
I would rather get some good open back headphones if you do not need isolation. AD700 and HD598 are both easy to drive and sounds great for their price. D2000 is the most boomy headphone I have heard in a long while, D7000 did improve on that issue though. FA-003, shame that I haven't heard them at all.
6-8 weeks is a long time to wait
I don't like open back headphones deployed I have a roommate for 6 months and then we spend a couple weeks in a tent I would probably be killed. It doesn't help that I rather like to listen to music loud enough that it has some kick. I have been rocking the JVC's off of the couple of reviews quoting them better than some more well known brands in the cheapy category that was the better part of ten years ago just trying to upgrade to the best bang for my buck sort of thing and would rather like something robust enough to last a while.
I am back to my home theater I can wait trust me if I was currently deployed I would be singing a different story, but the JVC's are still usable and I rather like my home theater to be used. Can't let that harmon/kardon sit quietly to long.
you don't need to audition a pair of headphones that cheap. I mean $150 is a lot of money to some people but he isn't buying Sennheiser HD800 or Denon D7000.
No kidding I wish I could jump on either of those. Wife would kill me in my steps. Maybe next deployment I can con my way into some. At that point I should probably be looking at either making the best headphone amp I can or shelling the big bucks out for a real one.
check out iBasso
I am using an iBasso D12 currently. Enough power to drive my DT150 to good level. If anything, the DT150 totally trumps the D2000 even in bass slap without sounding floppy. It does need an amp of some kind though.
The old iBasso D2+ I used to own is also plenty power for the price, but the DAC section was far inferior.
you can always visit Mark Lawton if you have the money
What's everyone's opinions on the FA-002w's?
They are around the same price of the Denon's and people are comparing them to much much nicer headphones. I want to try building my own amp there is a lot of talk about getting different sound out of different caps I have no problem giving it a shot.
It's your fault you told me to look at the 003's now I like the design
it's hard to stop scratching when you get bit by the audio bug.
I am thinking the FA-003's or the 002w's depending on funds.
somebody has to buy them haha
Does anyone on TPU have either set?
I don't think so.
hmmm well in that case I like not going with what everyone else chooses.
Hey guys im looking at buying the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 with 7.1 Surround Sound. i have looked into it for a while now and im thinking these are the gaming headphones that i will be buying. but im not sure exactly if this is a good buy or not. do any of you own or know anything more about these?
I just got some SRH750DJ 's but there was no cable inside the new and unopened box I bought it at Best Buy and they are out of stock since a week now in my whole city (4 Best Buys).
I also bought a Creative Aurvana Live! but the cables at either side annoyed me. They were much more comfortable than either my SRH440s and my SRH750DJ's, but I find that the SRH440s are a bit better in the sound quality department. I'm a little bit of a bass head, not the big on mids, but still like to have nice highs and the SRH750DJ seem to fit the bill! Build quality and especially comfort aren't where I'd like them to be though, and the flat headband isn't that attractive or comfortable. The earpads, especially considering the clamp force and that I am wearing glasses, aren't that comfortable either.
Hopefully the sound will make me fall in love with it anyways Do any of you burn in your headphones? If so what is your methodology?
Shure has some new headphones coming out this year
Yea the open cans... They promise to be awesome, but out of my price range The AKG K701 is a better buy than the SRH1440 though, so hopefully they will give it a healthy price drop
The SRH 940 Just came out, apparently they are great and have very detailed sound
the AKG K701 is a classical/orchestral headphone.
I don't but I have 2 wireless headsets:
- The Creative HS-1200, which sits atop the ear (which gets painful if you wear glasses) and is so-so in terms of sound quality. Certainly for the price you can do better. They are Stereo and have their own USB sound card.
- The Razer Chimaera Xbox edition. This one plugs into the headphone/mic jacks in front/top of your case and take their sound from your sound card. If you have a good sound card (which I do, an Auzentech Prelude), then you can set it to emulate 5.1 or 7.1 on the Stereo headset. Frankly, after owning two multichannel (wired) headsets, I feel this is the best way to get the directionality and immersion you look for. To be honest, this Razer has been a very pleasant suprise. It is comfortable and has very good sound, for a wireless headset.
There is also a PC version of the Razer Chimaera, which is more expensive and has an USB sound card. I don't know about that one.
