      Even the basic SR-80 phones (around $80.00) are excellent. And you're supporting a nice family-owned & run business, with a 50 year history.

      • Agreed. Sennheiser is quite overhyped, and the stuff under $300 is pretty much circuit city quality -- OK, but not great. The Grados are fairly cheap, sound pretty damn good, and are much more comfortable to use.

Practically every review of this set says they're not very comfortable, and I can't wear my pair for more than two hours without my ears feeling like they're going to fall off.

Playing an FPS against someone with no audio is extremely easy, because it makes it harder for them to notice engine sounds and gunfire (silencers were invented for a reason), and of course they can't hear your footsteps.

    I see. I knew there was something wrong when my $20 headphones would actually store up the sound for like 10 milliseconds before playing any of it. Thank goodness this company built speaker drivers "faster than most conventional speaker drivers found in traditional headphones, making the Everglide s-500 optimized for millisecond feedback."

    Now I can listen to games without my speaker drivers storing up all the sound before spitting it out.

    And it's a good thing they optimized these for games because games produce sound, like, way cooler than music can. And it's directional, whereas music just comes in stereo and binaural forms, which aren't directional at all. And they can pinpoint sound to a pixel, which is cool because I have a lot of pixels.

    And it's good they made these comfortable, because people who listen to music only spend like a few hours listening, whereas a gamer like myself will typically game for 48+ hours, so I need that extra level of comfort.

    And it's cool they reproduce the full 20 Hz - 20 kHz sounds range; just looking at sub-$500, I have yet to find a pair of regular "music" headphones that can do 20 Hz. (Of course they spec their cans at +/-1dB or +/-3dB; maybe these people spec to +/-60dB, in which they might be right.)

    Fortunately, if anyone buys these, he or she must be so enamored with the purchase that he/she will think that he/she has the best set of headphones (for gaming) in the world. And ignorant happiness will ensue. So buyer and seller will have achieved their goals.

But it fit my needs so I bought it.

    • You scoff at speaker drives that store up all the sound before spitting it out, but this sort of buffering system is actually very useful if your ears fall behind and can't process all the sound, or if there's some latency along the audio cable (as can happen when multiple signals are competing for bandwidth).
    • Actually, any decent headphones should be flat down to 20Hz. The problem is, the ears can't hear sub-bass very well, you mostly perceive it with your body. Also, computer soundcards can't drive headphones with frequencies that low because they have shitty AC-coupled amplifiers with cheap tiny electrolytic capacitors. I just tested my soundblaster live, and it distorts horribly below 60Hz, even at low volumes. There is a reason nobody in their right mind builds audio amplifiers with AC-coupled outputs.

    "In fact, making the speaker driver very sensible to minimal audio response resulted in this Headphone to lack in Bass audio quality."

    Not only did the author use "sensible" instead of "sensitive", they also make an erroneous connection between the speaker sensitivity and bass response. In fact, it appears that the author doesn't understand speaker sensitivity. The speakers are supposed to be super-lightweight, so they make sounds faster than regular speakers, so no one can sneak up on you in a game. The result of this is apparently the lack of Bass (why the caps?). Both of those statements make absolutely no sense.

And it would have a line of spare parts for things that break on them and go fatigue. Like the cushions and the lining.

    All their fluff about the fast membrane is just that: fluff. Sony has used biocellulose membranes in their headphones for some time and they aprobably aren't the only ones. Doesn't really matter, it works well, so do other materials. The "millisecond response time" is bullshit. All headphones respond as soon as the voltage starts changing, and because of the short distance to your ear, propagation through the air isn't an issue. The sound is instantanious. The only thing a lighter, better controlled driver will buy you is better highs. Of course that also requires an amp that can keep control over that driver, which generally takes a current output you don't get from PC soundcards.

    To me it sounds like the reviewer has just been using the $5 Radioshack special headphones and this is the first higher end headphone he's ever heard. I remember the experience, I used to always have little America West headphones my dad brought back, that was all I got to use. Then, I finally saved up money and bought like a $50 pair of headphones from Radioshack and I was blown away by how good they sounded. I had no basis for comparison so I was amazed at the improvement. Now, having heard a wide variety of good headphones with good amps, I'm very unimpressed.

    Looks like these are some reasonable quality, maybe $40 headphones in an expensive $100 box. I'm sure they aren't horrible but really, do yourself a favour and get some real phones. If you like ear buds I just can't say enough good things about Ultimate Ears. The 3s are great, the 5s are stellar, and I can only hope someday I'll be rich enough to try their 10s. You will be much happier with the money spent. They may not have hired gamers to help them design their phones, but they did get musicians, audigolgists, audio engineers, and other people that, you know, might actually know what the fuck they are talking about.
  • Hey everyone, shutup already about the ads!! If you complain too much about the products, point out it's flaws, and uncover the fact that the article is a farce, then you will nullify the effect of the advertisement. We will then see things like the tagging system go away, and more heavy comment moderation from Slashdot editors.

    Ok, I admit that it would help if the ad wasn't written by a 12 year old and the product wasn't an overpriced piece of junk made by a mousepad company.

    WTF is a "Professional Gaming Headset," and does it come with AcoustiMass technology or a 30 day Excitement Guarantee? Also, will I get a better sonic picture if I use these power cables [thecablepro.com]?

    Thanks!

  • Old Man Murray [oldmanmurray.com] used to have this great feature on their short review pages - on each short review there were flags at the side of the page, which you could click on, signifying major languages. So you'd click on the flag of Spain to see the review translated into Spanish via BabelFish.

    Or at least, that would be your first guess.

    Of course, as it was Old Man Murray, what actually happened was that if you clicked on a flag, you would see the review again in English, but after it had been translated from E

I'd rather be led to hell than managed to heavan.
