Selling a few PS3 games... shameless eBay plug thread(40 posts)
Hey Deacon, I haven't won any auction on Ebay. Do you mind if I send you the extra P&P money through Paypal as a gift? Have you considered my offer?
Hey CyberMarco - yeah sorry mate, have been pretty busy the last couple of days...
Rayman's got a bid on it already, so I'm not sure - can I still cancel that and sell elsewhere?
I'd be willing to send both games including postage for £15 or so, but don't want to get any negatives for cancelling the auction :\
@polygem I use Sennheiser (HD 280 pro) headphones too. Don't care about mics, but have you tried the Sony PS3 headset & if so, how does it compare to your Sennheisers?
(Sorry this is off topic)
I see, I'll try to get Enslaved if no one bids for it. About the P&P costs, I can send you the extra ~1£ through Paypal.
Oh yeah and thanks Poly and anyone else who commented RE the headset! :)
@Digital B. and Deacon:
I had the playstation branded 7.1 headset and also some sony wireless phones (MDR-DS6500 )...they both lacked punch and bass imho and i am not one of those "MORE BASS!" kinda guys. i just want a balanced sound with a good punch.
the 7.1 and the DS6500 aren´t bad headsets/phones but if you compare them directly to others you realise that they do not sound that great.
the mdr has awesome battery power (last forever!) a lot of input options and decent build quality, but after trying other phones and headsets the rs 180 really is the best option for me. i am 100% happy with that thing. they are also among the most comfortable phones i ever had. it´s not a headset though. it also lacks many input options (no optical!). that´s no problem for me because i have it connected to a receiver anyway. all my consoles are connected to that receiver. there is no difference in sound between analog and digital anyway, even if some people say so, i never realised any differences and i really think it´s nothing a human ear could hear. there is another wireless sennheiser line especially made for home entertainment with surround sound and bassboost: the rs 170, but i really think the 180 is the better option for games, movies and music. they really sound all around great. the bass is just right too. totally recommend those to anyone looking for wireless headphones. the kleer tech is awesome. chrystalclear, no hiss. battery last very long too. never had a problem, even after ultralong playing sessions, never run dry. the rs 220 is the top end line in the sennheiser wireless department atm but they do not use kleer but another tech which is supposed to be even better but with the price of battery life. the sound differences aren´t really big though many reviewers say. battery life for wireless phones is important for gamers so i would really rule those out.
i do not chat much anymore these days so i have given up on dedicated headsets. hate all the cables too. if i want to chat i just use a throat mic/headset which i use under my phones...works good. i wouldn´t buy into headsets now with the next gen just around the corner. they might change the set up. i had the tritton ax pro´s, some turtle beach (cannot recall which ones), and the astro a30´s, also checked out the a 40´s...the astros combined with the mixamp are miles ahead. best sound, best build quality. seriously, i don´t think there is a better option on the market for multiplat headsets atm. the trittons sounded ok (not as good as the astros though) but felt cheap and were uncomfortable. the turtle beach were ok for the price, but not great if good sound is important.
they are much cheaper now though!
And...sorry; i forgot; all those headsets don't come close to High end headphones.people might disagree but seriously if you compare directly you realise.
Thanks Polygem. Those RS 180's look great. Just working out my budget.
Am I right in thinking that any of these wireless headsets that runs from a transmitter unit should work fine across all devices? I've only ever used dedicated sets so I'm not 100% sure on this.
Thanks again man :)
i paid 149,99 euros for the rs 180´s brandnew on amazon germany. they´re totally worth it.
you can connect the transmitter to a receiver/amp and then connect everything to that amp: your tv, all your consoles your stereo...whatever you want. i tried so many different set-ups and it took me ages to figure out that this actually might be a bit more expensive at the start but so worth it in the end. it is convenient and it guarantees great sound for all your multimedia stuff. if you buy good phones once you can keep and use them for all your multimedia stuff for 10 years at least or even much more. good phones stay good phones. my dad has some very high end marantz headphones which he bought in the late 70´s/early 80´s and they are still used almost every day on a vintage stereo and they sound awesome.
with the headsets it is kind of a different thing. the astro´s, trittons etc. arent´t wireless...maybe there are newer models these days? haven´t checked for a year or so.
with the astros and trittons you connect the ps3 and 360 to a mixamp (it´s included with the trittons (but it´s cheap plastic and not that great - and costs extra with the astros but it´s really good quality) then you connect the mixamp to your consoles.
with every headset you´ll have cable horror!!! i am so done with that. i always hated that. you´ll have this problem with all the headsets, esp. with the multiplat ones.
i just found out that there is indeed a wireless new option from astro now: the a 50´s
....never checked those out though, but probably worth googling it for more info.
also worth checking out the tritton warhead 7.1. no personal experience on this one though. also wireless.
EDIT: scratch the trittons, not multiplat. 360 only :(
also had the siberia steel series headset by the way. not good.
but remember. wireless means sacrifice in sound most of the time. this is why i am so excited about the sennheiser rs 180´s. they´re wireless but still sound like top line wired phones. they really do and that´s amazing....fuck the lack of a mic if i can have that great, immersive sound with that perfectly balanced bass (at least for my taste).
so basically all i am saying: imho good phones always > than good headsets regarding sound...if you do not chat a lot, a great allround headphone will be the better option, combined with a small multiplat in ear headset that you can wear under them if you wanna chat. those headsets are most of the time not worth it. even the overpriced better ones. compared to great phones they all do not sound that great.
