I am so stoked. I sent my AD700s off to AT to get repaired, all but ready for a bill since I had modded them, and not only did it only take them a day to repair them and send them back, it was no charge. Even though only one driver failed, they went ahead and replaced both. Audio Technica has my vote. Now I can take the money I was going to use on them or a new pair of DT770s and get this Dual 1019 TT I have been looking at.

I have high hopes for the ATH-M50/M50s. I hope they will release something better at a good price I can get for Black Friday this year. I'll probably get myself something more than a computer building experience. I need to work hard this year for money (I get $0.25 per chore ).

How you do it, is define chore. For instance, if your chore is mopping the tile in the kitchen, you define your chore as mopping one tile. Then you get 25c per tile. Of course then they just tell you to do it and don't pay you anything .

Hi all.

I mostly listen to loud music while playing warcraft 3 with very low sound and chatting on Skype. So I need a good headphone for music.
But I play FPS games seriously too like CS, so the headphone have to be good in audio positioning too, do not have to be the best on it :X
I would say I need a headphone 75% for music purposes and 25% for games.
I listen to all Metal derivatives like Heavy Metal, Metalcore, Hardcore, and Rock Punk/Pop Rock as well. But I like a good bass too. Hate those headphones that have more treeble than bass.

Im considering to buy a HD555 with Zalman clip mic, and need your opinion.
Im curently using my onboard Realtek card. I heard that for headphones like this, I would need a better card like a Xonar or X-fi.
What you guys have to say?

Thanks.

I wouldn't recommend the HD555 if you like your bass. Budget?

I dont like tooooo much bass, but I like bass
I would say i prefer equally bass and treeble and mids a little less.
Im considering to spend around 100$ more some good cheap soundcard if needed.

I was testing some cans out last week in case I had to replace my AD700s, and the DT770s sounded great. Kind of like the 700s with bass. They are closed of course, but the sound stage was just as impressive as the AD700s.

But the DT770 is 200$ man :/

Ok, for starters... I know nothing about Headphones...

I am wanting to get a head set that I can use for Gaming and also plugging into my Ipod while on the go, so I guess it would need a (think) 3.5mm plug. Was also looking for one with a Mic that can be removed or at least folds up outof the way and doesn't look too goofy.

Anyone know if there is such a thing?


Kind of posting this as I run out the door from work...

and you will get every pennies worth out of them. Especially with the music you like.

Any low impedance headphones will work, and you can get a clip on mike. Something like these Grados might work for you .
