Another headphone recommendation! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Aw well do, I'm going to make a few phone calls. If none of the retail store have it then I'll order from Amazon.

Thanks for the quick recommendation. It's kind of funny how everyone was so quick to jump on AD700 and Zalman mic

I use the same set up as he listed. No they will not have a lot of bass. As they are open back. The closed back model will have a little better bass but then you lose out on the sound stage of the open back ones. I keep my zalman mic clipped on my monitor stand side. And it is a great one, very clear and no problems with it.

But the ad-700's are some big headphones. But they are not heavy just plain big. Just depends on if you got a big head i guess. If you wanted something less sticking out pick up some sennheiser 555 with the zalman clip on mic.

I just wanted to update you guys about the recommended purchase. I was at amazon.com and ready to submit my credit card information for the AD-700 but cancel the order instead. Something came over me and it said, "try to fix your damn headphone before spending another $100", I think it was my conscious talking to me. Anyways, I started to google, "How to fix headphone", and came across a youtube video. It explain thoroughly on what is needed and how to fix. Went to radio shack and bought the 3.5mm connector, I spend half a day trying to get it to work w/o success. I was going to give up and buy the AD700 but my conscious was yelling at me again, it said, "why the hell are you giving up? You don't have anything better to do so you better learn from your mistake and get your ***** together". Woke up today head over to home depot to find some screws to fit the 3 holes for the connector. No luck at Home Depot so I head over to Ace Hardware. Finally found the screws I needed. I started to disassemble the wires and re-attaching them to the new connector. Hour and a half later I successfully transmitted sound through my headphones. Now I need to do it for the Mic as well. Another hour fiddling with the wire and I've got the mic working again. I currently have sound on both ears on the headset and no more static on the mic. This cost me a total of $12 and now my $100 headphones are working like new again. The feeling of satisfaction from hard work and money saved is great. I encourage anyone with the same dilemma to do the same
