Had both, Cloud Alpha any day for me, sound quality is just so much better it's unreal. Although Arctis feel more comfortable, you simply forget you have them on your head.

"Although Arctis feel more comfortable, you simply forget you have them on your head." This is where I am stucking. For example when It's hot arctis is good because it's made of sponge ears, hyperx not.

hyperx are also made out of sponge but they are fully enclosed and the leather warms your ears

even if Arctis is more comfortable you will miss the sound quality. My brother bought the Arctis and ended up using his old wired sennheisers instead because the sound quality was so shitty on the Arctis. I would really not recommend them but your choice friend

2021-12-06 17:50

Pro's are playing with earbud on LAN because they have to, they are required to wear noise-cancelling headphones over these. Even still, most pro's have sponsorship deals in place deciding which headphones they play with, so using the argument "Pro's use this therefore it is the best" is flawed in most cases. Also, while I beleive that most 'gaming' headsets are overpriced and unsuited to the tast of actual competitive play, there are some that actually perform decent enough, though few and far between.

What I meant by pros playing with earbuds on LAN wasn't the fact that they chose to or what not, but the fact that they can compete at the highest possible level with garbage gear like that. U misunderstood my comment. And completely agree with the latter part.

I guess they're just paying for the convenience of having two things in one, aesthetics, or the brand name. I wouldn't waste my money on gaming headsets neither.

Eh, they're decent, but I wouldn't exactly call them the best in any category. The Cloud lineup consists of somewhat decent all-rounders with sub-par mics and a bit muddy bass. Not bad, but not great either

that's the thing, they're not the same, at all, it's more the tuning of the m50's are really bright, like way way too bright. I used to have the m50's and then I moved to Senn HD700's which were again too bright at the time. Dialed back to Fostex t60's and they're my happy place now.

Oh yes, the T60RP, the best factory mod of the T50's :D Also about the M50's, I found them too bassy and also a bit too bright, but in a weird way, and this is coming form someone with 2 pairs of Beyerdynamic's :D

they lack distinguished mids. With stock pads, they're okay but then you get anything else on them and it becomes a bit of a shit show. T60's are the best. Though I do have a nuclear power reactor powering them (Emotiva A-100) Full audio set up: Focusrite 2i2, emotiva a-100, t60's, MXL770 :)

That's a lovely setup you've got there :D I went with a Rode AI-1 feeding into a JDS Atom, with a Shure SM7B (I know, how original). As far asheadphones go, it's a bit of a mid-fi mixup Hifiman Sundara, Sennheiser HD600, Monolith M1060C, Audeze Penrose, Beyerdynamic DT 900 Pro X and DT 770 250 Ohm, Philips Fidelio X2HR, Meze 99 Neo, Audio Technica AD700X, plus HyperX Cloud Flight and Corsair Virtuoso (which I'm about to sell) I'm probably gonna sell some of these and go with something a bit more special, maybe an LCD-X, or maybe the new Meze Liric

That's a pretty tasty set-up! - The Sundara good? Keep the HD600's though they're like the old trusty haha! Maybe look at something from Dan Clark Audio (previously Mr Speakers) - I'd probably run something from his range over the LCD-X's I haven't been looking at reviews too much recently though :)
2021-12-07 12:36
1 reply
Oh I'm definitely keeping the HD600, that one's a keeper, if only for reference :D The Sundara is indeed great, though I have modded it a bit, the original is very neutral, but I had to replace the earpads (too shallow for my ears), swapped them for Dekoni LCD micro suede pads, now it's my chill headphone, a touch less top end, a bit more bass, still great mids, great for long evenings with mead. I could try something LIke the Aeons, open or closesd, but I haven't had the chance to give either of them a lister, whereas I had listened to the LCD-X for a bit and I loved them. Ultimately, it will depend on what I want from the headphone. I might go sor something to enjoy the music and vibe with, instead of something for critical listening. The main deciding factor for me will be comfort though, I need good 28mm of pad depth just to make sure it doesn't squish my ears :(

The higher frequencies are overexagerated, making the S's and T's very noticable, sometimes painfully so. Plus, the M50's have next to no soundstage (width of the sound, how large it appears to be)

That depends what you want. A generally similar type of headphone (closed-back studio monitors) that i could recommend is the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro. It sounds a bit more balanced (m50x has a bit of a humpp in mid-high bass), has a batter defined/resolving sub-bass. It also has enhanced top-end, but I found it much less noticable, though your mileage can vary. Or were you looking for a different type of headphones?
2021-12-07 14:37

nah the same type. I have had the m50's for a long time, but have never had them in heavy use :D kind of hard to explain why but yeah thats that I just had this impression that they were considered good

They have a bit of a "Love it or Hate it" reputation, Either someone loves them and is willing to defend them with his life if necessary, or they hate them with passion of a thousand suns. I personaly stand at a steep dislike of the headphones.

I'll be honest here, while the durability is good and I give HyperX credit for the replacable microphone and earpads, As far as sound goes they are just a bit above average and the mic itself is a bit sub-par. It's a pretty decent headset, but not exactly what I'd call the best
