Headphones Explained in 5 Minutes:

QUOTE
ExplainedELI5: The difference between $250 earphones vs $10 earphones.

-A better pair of headphones will:
-Have less distortion
-amplify evenly over a broad range of pitch and volume
-be more durable
-fit and stay in your ears better
-block out external noise

There is a also a good deal of marketing and audiophile BS involved, and some of these differences are only something a trained ear would notice. The difference between $50 and $3000 headphones are pretty clear, after that, things start to get a little dubious.
EDIT: Just to be clear, by "dubious", I don't mean headphones stop getting better at $3000. What I mean is it becomes less clear whether you are paying better features or marketing hype.



QUOTE
ExplainedELI5: FREQUENCIES

TL;DR Version.

Low - Bass. Drums. Kickdrums. EDM. Anything that packs a solid low end punch. Best versions of bass is those where it's solid and tight. A controlled thump, rather than a loose boom you hear in that of Beats headsets.
Mids - Vocals. Musical instruments of the mellow kind like guitars or pianos. Supposed to be lush and mellow. Like a buttery feeling when you listen to it.
Highs - Treble. Also musical instruments but generally more sharper ones like snares, cymbals. Lousy treble control usually ends with highly annoying Sharp hisses.

Some people prefer bass. Some likes treble, especially gamers.

Finally a new thread.

I'd like to come up with a Top 5 (or 10, or whatever) headphones for gamers.
Though generally speaking, those on the budget can always look at Superlux or search for some second hand stuff.

Well, we can always get a Top 10 based on value. If a cheaper headset can kick higher end headsets we give it a place.

Speaking of which, I haz good news. There is a store in Sungai Wang that has the Alpha Dog. Shall we go try it out? brows.gif

I owned the TH900... for a short period of time. Then I had to sell it, cause you know... when I bought it, that was a very insane impulse buy. sweat.gif

Oh, is his store fully opened yet? I heard he's still stocking stuff.
Btw remind me to poison you. brows.gif

In my view, all headphones qualify for gaming, movies or music.

The seperation where these gaming companies has made is atrocious. There's still an unbelieveable amount of people out there who thinks gaming headsets are the best you can get when you wan the best audio experience when playing games. That's just so wrong. A good headphone is a good headphone, period.

HUH, WHAT? YOU ACTUALLY BOUGHT THE TH900?!? *faints*

Impulse it was man. Holy shite. Well, we test out the Alpha Dog and see how it stacks up at 50% the price.

Yeah I THINK he has a store already. Plus the fact he PMed me means he is stalking me too. Hahahaha. You let me know when you free lah. I probably will go next Monday or Tuesday since i need to get stuff from Times Square.

+1. Good hearphones are meant for everything. That's why we are here to share what is great for gaming. Doesn't matter what brand.

Yes, caused me a kidney.
Luckily I sold it back at 90% of its original price and it was very easy to sell it too, since it was so hard to get that people don't mind paying for it.

High hopes for the Alpha Dogs indeed. Next Tuesday sounds fine I think, let's see how it goes.

That 10% loss still sounds painful mate. sweat.gif
Hahaha. But yeah, everyone wants a TH900. It's good Shit.

Warning though, we are kinda building too much expectations on one headset hahahha. Alright sure, let me know anytime next Monday or Tuesday.

Hope it'll be my end game for the next few years before I reeeeeally step into high end HeadFi when I have the capability to do so.

My actual pc still havent completed until now loool..Bitspower took their sweet time today only sending the parts..

Only reason I'm selling the mining rigs is to buy ASICs hehe..

Have you guys read the thread on Mad Lust Envy's gaming headphones roundup on head-fi?
It's more console-focused but some good info there too.
I'm not sure if we can link to other forums here though :S
