I do it on occasion myself, but usually there's other reasons for such, and those heaphones have swivels for very specific reasons. ^_^

It's extra special when someone wears them like that and they don't notice you talking for a while because they're engrossed by mono biggrin.gif.

I just went off into lalaland. I'm giving up pretty much my entire sound system, AKG Q701 headphones, Audio-Technica AD900X headphones, Audio-Technica AT2020USB mic, and Aune T1 Mk.2 with stock and Amperex 7308 tubes for sure, and possibly more, for one item, the Schiit Bifrost Multibit... if the guy accepts, ofc. And then I'd need a Magni 2 Uber for a new set of AKG Q701 headphones and a new mic...

Agreed, though I'd tell them to keep their mitts off the tubes before slapping them tongue.gif.

I would warm them after I slap their hands. tongue.gif Tubes get hot and I don't want any reactionary flinching motions to mess with the painted labels on the tubes which would really tank resale value if I decided to sell them. As for monitors, they really should just know better. LOL

You sound insane like me.

LOL

Poor lad. cheers.gif


fyi everyone, Fiio K1, at 100 volume in windows, powers the t20rp's mark 3's... like perfect listening level, you wish you could turn it up a nothc more but it would hurt your ears at that point anyway... honestly I love the K1 more than the fulla. fulla and schiit is too harsh on the highs... K1 warmer and better imaging imo with all my cans...

edit: obviously the k1 leaves one wanting on something hard to drive like the t20's. but still impressive for a little thing... E10k olympus 2 I think is my end game for now... warm dac like k1 and same ampage as fulla

need a bit of an advice, i have a razer kraken chroma at the moment i am planning to get rid to it as it is uneasy to wear for a longer duration, can someone tell me what is the difference between the two sennheiser game zero and sennheiser game one? as they are pretty much the same price in my country, and would they sound better then my razer kraken chroma and would they be comfortable ?

btw i have a Asus maximus VIII extreme motherboard below are the details of the motherboard with respect to its sound soundcard and is my sound card good enough for these sennheiser game zero and sennheiser game one head phones



here is also a link of my boards manufacturers specs

Kingston Hyperx Cloud Revolver sounds better than both Sennheiser and Beyerdynamic headsets. Not the Cloud 1 or 2 mind you, the new Cloud Revolver, the Revolver is also super comfy. Check it out on Amazon or Ebay or Newegg.

If you don't need a headset, or can get buy with a cheap $10 desktop mic like I do, then you would be better off buying Pioneer SE-A1000 with HM5 velour earpads.

i cant order on ebay or amazon or newegg, as the custom charges and shipping would double its original price ..... the only decent headphones for gaming and with a mic are game one and game zero ? so please tell me there difference if you know

Lol I do this a bunch with almost every headphone. The hardest one to do it with for me is my Fostex tongue.gif. I only do it when someone comes up to speak to me, though biggrin.gif.

Lol drives me mad... mainly because every set of X12s my friends owned ended up having duct-tape and metal splints trying to hold them together a little while longer and were broken for exactly the same reason. So the mental image of my HD650s being held together by duct tape because people wear them lopsided or bat them back off the ear makes me cringe biggrin.gif .
