AD700's are best for pure gaming. 598's if you plan on using them for other things. Extensive reviews have been done in hifi forums. I also use AD700+DSS+spectrum combo; plugging directly into the DSS seems to provide a better overall quality however sound chat is extremely crucial if you play with a team so audio mixing is absolutely critical.

P.S. AD700's fit great, they are also extremely comfortable. People who complain generally have small heads. Fortunately I do not fall into that category. In fact in most reviews you will find that their comfort is usually touted with great reverence. That said they do fit 'looser' than your average headset. Like if I tilt my head all the way towards the floor they will slip forward-- @#$% you gravity!

And there we see again, Headsets are preference and matter of taste. I found the 700AD boring and no fun and prefer the HD598 and Retrospect would never trade in his. The spectrum generates really bad sound quality on my system, maybe on Slims it doesn’t. So there is no other way than try yourself and keep what you like. Seems Noobs and me we have the same Taste as we tried just everything and ended up with the DSS and the 598s.

Yea but theyre both using an actual mixing console to do it... Mixamp and dss should have eqs on them... Right now im thinking about getting a cheap desktop mixing console for my setup like these guys. Wouldnt be that hard to put a two or three band eq on these devices from the getgo though.

The hard part is not to produce noise as there is a second grounding involved.

Yeah but they don't use crappy controllers with two way 2,5mm pin connectors. I gave up, but I will try again if someone steps up with a good mixing solution.

Lmfao yep your def right on that.

Oh man I got so far off topic sorry bout that. but yea the mixing console im looking at only runs 50$ us so it may be aviable solution and also it has an eq. The noise can prolly be helped with a ground lift of sorts.

not always j/k ;) :D
Great peeps at the German Discussion Forum ^_^
 
Ontopic:
As Noobs states I use a Mackie 802-VLZ3 in combination with the DSS and I really love it!
 
Headphones are really personal, as I really like my AKG Q701 which preamped has a good bass.
If you like more bass I also have the AKG 271 MKII and as a "console" headset I also own the Turtle Beach PX5 running completely wireless throught a bluetooth module.
 
The sound of the PX5 is also very good and I really like that the PX5 can be completely preset through a PC you can set the filters just like you want the sound to be. Filter out bass and amp the Hi`s whatever you want.

I also have DSS+ Hd 598 and i love them! I had same dillema about no voice mix... In xbox setting(preference->voice) I changed game volume to half and give voice to max.Now if someone talks,game volume reduces a little and i hear my team mates perfectly! It work great for me! Just try this !

Thats why using an analog mixer would work great for audiophiles. Usually include ground lifts.... Eqs.... Preamps.... Aux sends and returns.... Though seeing as a good part of the xbl audio system is so cheap im conflicted. Cables are not sheilded well and crap jacks. It could be like trying to polosh a turd.
