I saw Sony is selling MDR-1Rmk2 for RM649. Just wondering are these worth it even at this "low" price? I'm comparing to the like of HD558 and AT M50, and I know I might be wrong to compare with monitoring cans.

Before this I'm eyeing on the Kingston HyperX Cloud, basically a Takstar 80 with a mic. However it's very much overpriced here in Malaysia. At ~RM400, I think I can get a much better cans.

- Your rig: Asus Xonar U7, AE Aego M
- What usage: FPS Gaming + Music
- File format: lossless, 320k mp3.
- Genre of music: pop song (taiwan, english)
- type: over hear close or open.
- Other requirements: bonus mic, I don't mind if it sound great and do without one.

EDIT on 13/9: A few people asked me where did I get the MDR-1R for RM649, good news is that Sony Malaysia is running promotion now, so you can just pick them up at Sony stores in the country. The price is also shown in their online store.

The price is OK for 1R mk2, I think they just want to clear it and give way to their new flagship. And it is more portable than M50 and HD558, and have better look imo.

What model are they releasing soon?

Then I think I'm picking up the MDR-1Rmk2. That Z7 is a USD800 part!

Do checkout the SoundMAGIC HP150 as well  nod.gif

I heard the HP200 look like quite a value buy! And I'm guessing the HP150 is as good as HD558 and stuff?

The bottom one should be Sony MDR V6, any idea where I can test one of these?

Hi all Sifus here,

May I know what's the difference between gaming headset and normal headphone ?
Besides gaming headphone might have mic for communication purposes.

Some gaming headphone have 7.1 surround if not mistaken.

Using for connecting to hp for listening to music (spotify) and might me some gaming.

Most of the 7.1 surround gaming headset are software simulated, which you can also do the same with normal headphones using software like Razer Surround or sound cards from Creative / Asus.

Some true 5.1 gaming headphones really have 3 little speakers for each ears, but because of physically small size, the sound quality isn't as good compared to normal headphone.

Kingston HyperX Cloud and Cloud II got lots of good review for their sound quality being a gaming headset, you might want to look into it.

If you're loaded, do get an audiophile headphone and add a Mod-Mic.
