What headphones do you use with your g750?

Like the title says and what do you think of the "awesome amp"?

Im using one of the most sensitive and lowest impendance iems on the market (ie 80) and i get a noticable background hiss (Before I followed the guide to get maxx audio installed properly it was too much but now its tolerable, thanks to everyone posting about that particular solution. The only way to control impendance/gain setting is through maxx audio so if youre getting crazy hiss with low impendance headphones its probably because the default gain setting is high without maxx audio installed.).

Money is no object within reason when it comes to sound quality for me. Only reason i bought htc one was the sound quality through headphones. I always have the best available source files for my music, never anything below 320 kps mp3s and thats rare its almost always flac.
I own a cambridge magic + for my speaker setup.

Im considering buying Shure SRH940-E or hd 650 because i dont want a whole string of dacs and amps, I want something that works well with the built in amp wich i can hear is more than enough in clarity except for the hiss. Im leaning towards Shure SRH940-E because detail is everything to me but its so clinical it enhances all faults in the source from what ive read, so im wondering if hd 650 might be a better choice if the built in amp has that hiss regardless of impendance/sensitivity.

Anyone using either of those phones?

Im not going to buy hd 800 because that price class is beyond reason for next to no gain imo. Its to use with this laptop without a string of extra gear, thats the point.

I think the headphone amp is great for what it is ( more separation and clarity than any other built in solution ive heard even on bad recordings like youtube) except for the bad gain settings/hiss.

I use Logitech's G430. Amazing quality for an even better price. Full Dolby Digital 7.1 comes with a USB sound card and the mic quality is surprisingly good. All for the price of $70 :0

I'm hoping there will be no issues with my Logitech G930's (with some of the usb 3.0 issues reported). I love these headphones!

I use Logitech's G430 and they are AMAZING. Super good quality, stylish look, great sound control via Logitech software, 7.1 Dolby Digital surround sound, and all this for the price of $70?! Such a good deal 🙂

iweber95, are you using them on the Asus G750?
Do they work?
I am planning to sell my Razer Megalodons
and I am pretty scared they might not work

Audio Technica ATH-M50. Lovin' them.

Extremely sensitive headphones and they are almost unusable with the rog G750. The hiss is unbearable

Sennheiser momentum
Hiss is there but not nearly as bad as with the Fischer. I may need to invest in usb audio amplifier. Oh and this is awesome.. I use voip for work, and the hiss is sometimes maddening to my customers.

I use my beats. Anything is find really. Its just a headphone. But you can see what the beats can do at http://www.thehonestreviews.com/audio/beats-solo-hd-on-ear-headphone-review/ if you want.

Is anyone using 32ohm non-USB headphones without any hissing noise?

Yes- standard iPod headphones are 32ohm. Don't really use them, but tested successfully with no hissing.
