zalman 5.1 headphones

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
if this is in the wrong section pls let me know so we can get it moved pls..

hi guys..... i need some asistance pls. i have a set of zalman 5.1 headphones... and i think they are true 5.1 as they have 6 speakers in the thing.... anyway..

they are good headphones and do 5.1 souround sound brilliantly... i neeed a pair that will fit my head for hours on end and still have 5.1 or 7.1 sound.....

the reason i need to upgrade is my little one got hold of them and played tug of war with them.... and broke the one wire in the headset... and i am not a brilliant solderer so i need to get a new set...

the requirements are... they must be 5.1 or higher.. and the sound must be compatible with the asus xonar dx...


cheers

Stereo headphones + Dolby headphone (which your DX has) = MUCH better than 'true' surround headsets.

Budget?
How do you intend to use it?
music tastes?
other factors to consider?
post #3 of 12
I agree with ChineseKiwi, it will be ALOT better if you just use Dolby which your Xonar has on it as a setting and then use some good stereo headphones.

Give us a budget and what you listen to.
And we'll be sure to try and suggest durable ones

i use it to play games......

if i use a good pair of earphones i can only hear from what is next to me... and co not hear anything that is comming from the rear or side etc......... and it is a real pain to figure it out and mot of the time i make the wrong dessision and die....

the 5.1 helps me to hear from what angle they are comming from. i keep the centre base out and have it from 6 possible places left right.. front left front right.... rear left rear right.... and the zalmans where perfect for that..

Were just telling you, right here and right now, the only thing 5.1 headphones will do, is add more weight to your head and make it less comfortable over time.
What I will say then, is just get another pair of Zalman 5.1's. They are not what I would choose, but its opinion, they worked for you, you like them, why change em?

You should be able to take them to your local electronics shop and they'll be able to resolder the wire for you. Is the warranty gone?

Have you used the Dolby Headphone feature that comes with your DX or not?
post #10 of 12

are these the ones?


If so...for 30, i wouldnt even really bother going to get them resolder the wire. I would just buy a new set.
