Ok then.
And what about games? I do play BF3 a lot. Does that (or in general games) need a higher setting?

If i set it to the highest possible setting, does that cause something negative, when i listen to lower quality (lower as the setting itself) audio? Or do i have to deal with increased delay because of the processing power it needs? (sorry if the question is dumb, i dont really know how this works)

I have Logitech G35 Gaming Headphones

Ordered Panasonic HTX-7

And have my Klipsh S3's

I have tried out the ATH m30's at GC, and I was rather let down by the preformance of them, I know there was no burn in because they were just out of the box but still...

EDIT:
I will upload my own pics soon, Does anyone know of any repais to fix the G35's? the little plasticy bit that holds on the ear cup has snapped off and I am using gorilla tape and zip ties to keep it on.
post #11968 of 38136
I like the G35 too, it's a nice set appearance wise, good software, and great sound. Every now and then I get an audio glitch with weird metallic sounds though. That's annoying but is usually quickly fixed by disabling and enabling the headphones device in windows, or just muting and unmuting windows. Have a button for that on the keyboard.

This is rather surprising...

Anyway does IEM counts? I thought it's a headphone only club.
