In Topic: Best Headphones?

21 September 2014 - 02:43 AM

I have a pair of Sennheiser HD280 Pros and HD650.  Love them both.  I know this is an old thread, but it comes down to how much are you willing to spend?  The 280s can be hard for under 99 bucks usually.  The 650s tho...I got lucky and found a local seller on Amazon last weekend and paid 350 for a pair that looked like they had never been used.  A bit of warning tho, the high up you go, the more likelihood that you'll have to buy an amp or amp/DAC combo.  I plan on getting one for the 650s in a couple of months


In Topic: Gone but not forgotten - CAGs of the past

02 September 2014 - 09:54 AM

When I first saw this thread I was thinking it was about CAGs that have passed away.  Glad that its not.  I do seem to remember there was a thread many many years ago about such a subject.

 

I used to be quiet active on here years ago myself.  Surprised at some of the names of former CAGs that are no longer active.  To be quite honest, I stopped bothering with this place because of TFN.  It got to the point he was stalking my posts in totally unrelated threads and doing nothing but insulting and bullying.  A few times creating OTT names directly bullying me (fine example something along the lines of if you love bears don't post in this OTT, referencing my PSN name).  I brought it up to the mods to do something, but they just sat on their hands.  I saw that hes now banned, and has been so for a while now.  I am very curious as to what he did that finally got him banned.

 

Occasionally I'll pop in this sub forum and look around, but as all of you guys have said this place is a ghost town.  Other than that, I'll check the deal threads a couple times a week, but thats about it

I can vouch for Sennheiser myself.  I've been using a pair of HD280 Pro's for almost two years and they are awesome.  They can be had for 100 or less.  The only issue with the ones I have is that they are a closed design.  Meaning no air in and no out, so they can make your ears rather hot at times.

To be honest, I'd take SEH's advice and get a really really great set of cans, best you can afford, and add a clip on mic.  Thats what I do.  Sennheiser actually does make gaming headphones with a mic.

With the One's Amazon has a 50 difference between the white and black (white model 200 and black one for 250, just posted the link for the former).  Either way, here is Sennheiser's gaming line  http://en-us.sennhei...gaming-headsets

 

Some makers, like Sennheiser, who are focused more audio, make gaming headsets.  So it wouldn't hurt to checkout brands like them to see if they make any.  Reason being is that, say you buy a Turtle Beach headset, its more for gaming and you'll find it lacking the music department.  Thats how I've always seen it.  Sorry for being overly verbose or anything, but starting to fall asleep lol

Saw Amazon has BO2 for $30. Is the MP still active?

Yeah, its still pretty active.  I checked last night and it has about 2200 people online.  Free For All, Domination, Team Deathmatch, are the most active.  For the hell of it, I checked Ghosts* as well and both are pretty much equal in terms of activity.  Heck, last I check a month or two ago, Black Ops 1 is still active online

 

And just checked again a few mins ago, BO2 has about 8500 online while (using it as a comparison) Ghosts had about 7000.  So yeah, its still pretty active.  I honestly prefer BO2 myself.  Ghosts just feels way too cheap...
