They are USB so I wouldn't expect anything too amazing. If your sound card sucks and you need a headset it would be a really good idea though.

What do you guys think about the AKG K-701?

I want some very good, realistic, lightweight headphones.

BTW any reccomendations on a good Headphone Amp?

those akg k701's are some of the best headphones around... incredible instrument separation. What kind of music do you listen to?

for amps... ask soloz. it just depends on your price range and music you like
post #356 of 38150
Well I will be breaking them in with a lot of live recordings of the Grateful Dead

But I listen to a wide range of music. Everything from Metal to Classical.

I was also looking at the Ultrasone...that natural surround sound could be good for gaming...

I found a tube Amp on Ebay that might be okay...http://cgi.ebay.com/XIANG-SHENG-708B...QQcmdZViewItem

the k701's are very nice. I spent some time with a pair using my PPX3 and liked them better than the heavily lauded k340's. I still like my HD580's more though.

for an amp I'm not too versed on amps that mate extremely well other than tubes for sure and I've heard several good comments about the millet max.

Yes, I know I've been plugging this amp a lot lately, but it really is that good and it can be configured however you want so you can literally get it to sound good with just about any pair of cans.

yeah im sure that's what happened who would have thought anything could go wrong storing loads of info on a 16 HDD configuration for months on end

Just a lowly pair of ATH-M30's. I'd like something more exotic but my sound card needs upgrading first.
post #360 of 38150
Count me in, I'm currently in a state of newfound bliss, only to be improved when my x-fi elite pro arrives.

Sennheiser HD595, CX300, and RIP Creative EP-630's~
