I heard DT880's were great but I read they have an issue with the rear channel not being very present, when it comes to games for whatever reason so I opted for the Q701's.


My initial impression of the Q701's and ZXR is... meh. I mean it certainly is an upgrade from my onboard but not really that steep of one. I know the Q701's and AKG headphones in general take a longtime to burn in before you really begin to hear them shine though so I will reserve total judgement for a later date.

White noise let it run overnight in a closet or in a box. Even while you are away at work. http://simplynoise.com/
