Looks like these headphones are on sale again. Bet there are a few out there who missed December's deal. Have fun!
Any idea how warranty works with international purchases from Amazon?
How are these for music? Lets say for example, compared to ATH M40x
They're definitely not up to the audio technicas but having said that, they're not bad either. The plus points are they are very comfortable, decent audio and have 7.1 if connected via USB.
Any stereo headphones can do 7.1 virtual sound, the USB soundcard has one algorithm.
I had an old pair of Corsairs that needed new ear cushions with no where selling them anymore. Contacted Corsair, and although they asked for the receipt, they did send me replacements for free. I was sorta hoping for replacement headsets, but better than nothing!
Happy to try these out as I need something new for cheap. Thanks for posting this deal.
I got a pair in the last sale - highly recommend them. For the money they're awesome. The mic works great, the sound is good for gaming, and they're very comfortable. Highly recommended.
Got a pair in last lase for $54, little bit hot to wear in summer though.
Here's a fix used by audiophiles to fix the hot ear symptoms.
How do these compare to the hyperx cloud II or alpha? I missed that deal last month
They're all crap.
Well can you recommend me a good pair? I'm loofing for my brother as I have a modmic myself and a good pair of ordinary headphones but he wants a headset (within this price range or less then $100)
Massdrop Minimic (25USD) + Samson sr850 (35 AUD from aliexpress)
I've had the chance to try the minimic a few times. Seems quite decent.
@JuliusSeizure: he wants a headset not a separate mic
@AlmightyBeing: Then he has to live with subpar sound quality.
@AlmightyBeing: Let me be clear. Happy to post these types of deals because Ozbargain has a huge gamer community. However, in the comment sections, I'll continue to make noise about my product opinions. Admittedly I have a pretty high bar as I'm one of the lucky few who can distinguish from MP3 and FLAC (tried and tested). The logic is - even though I might not like the item, I'm sure it will help someone else here.
If your brother is happy for an on-ear headphone, I'd tell him to go with the Koss Porta Pro X from massdrop. In my opinion, the Porta Pro is the ultimate portable headphone that your brother can continue using if he wants higher fidelity in the future. It also has a mic but I haven't tried Massdrop's version so I can't comment on sound quality. imo The headphone has the widest soundstage for any headphone under 150 and is pretty accurate when I play the occasional FPS.
If he wants an over-ear headphone, he's out of luck. The Corsairs will suffice but they are not even close to being endgame if he ever wants serious music listening sessions.
@JuliusSeizure: You belong in the Head-Fi forums.
@JuliusSeizure: Yes Gaming headphones are all crap. Even the Senheiser gsp500/600 are crap. A HD598 for non amplifier use and hd600/650 or any monitoring headphones are great. Thank you for telling people the truth!
@theabyss: @theabyss oops fail tag. my response is up there ^
Try rtings for a rating comparison.
In realistic terms for a regular person these will be absolutely fantastic (this guy while not wrong perse clearly has overly high standards leaning towards audiophile excessiveness).
Gone down it seems, $62.05
They've gone and sent me a HS50. The plastic wrapping has a barcode that says HS60 but the box clearly has HS50 on every side haha.
Wow the same thing happened to me as well.
Amazon are being a bit annoying with swapping it over as well, urrgggh
I can understand if the wrong barcode is on the item, but the barcode sticker says HS60 but the HS50 logo on the box was right next to it. Surely someone checks before sending it across?
In the end I got them to call me (their system makes you enter your number and they call you). I explained the situation and said the postage would be a bit much as it is going back to the USA and that I'd prefer that they pay the postage up front rather than me having to apply to get re-reimbursed. He put me on hold and said "as the postage will be high, we will refund you and you can keep the item." Win for me in the end haha.
Amazon have their moments - I had to send a broken joy-con charger all the way back to the US (they reimbursed me, and sent a replacement beforehand). But they said I can keep the ironing board (which was the wrong colour) which was shipped from Amazon AU and even refunded the cost of it - so I could buy another one.
Yeh i dont really want them to "Say" they will reimburse me expensive postage. Really i just want my bloody headphones, dont really want to keep the old ones. A shame the guy at the factory stuck the wrong barcode on it and stuffed it up for us all.
I'm going through email at the moment, they asked for pictures of the wrong headphones…will see what they want. A refun aint gonna let me reorder them anyways since the price as gone up since.
