post #14671 of 37278

Is there anything out there that supports DTS audio for the PC? Most of my movies have DTS sound and using something like the Mixamp results in no sound because there is no DTS support.

For some reason I catch myself using the X1 a lot more than the MDs... even for music. That's saying something about the X1 because I usually like my music to be in my face (rather than open).

 

The MDs are still badass, though...

Asus Xonar DS and DSX sound cards come with DTS audio support.

An A/V receiver such as Pioneer has excellent headphone surround that supports everything including DTS & Dolby TrueHD.  It can't decode DTS HDMA but, will use the core DTS instead.  I use XBMC for my Bluray .mkv's and it works perfectly with my entire 300+ collection.  I actually prefer the Pioneer virtual headphone surround sound compared to my Mixamp Pro (+ it acts as pretty strong amp as well).  Or the Victor SU-DH1 which I found to be near impossible to find.

 

Edit: I should have mentioned I have a HTPC not a desktop setup, sorry.

I got this. ...

 Yes. Yes. No, be gentle. Yes, be gentle.

 

Read stuff.

Thank you.

All 3.5mm jacks should be handled with care. That includes on your devices like phones, etc.

The mediabridge cable sounds fine. Better than stock. Easier to handle than the Inakustik Premium cable. If you're worried about low resistance, just get the Monoprice cable:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021816&p_id=9765&seq=1&format=2
They also have a 10ft version.

They look identical to the mediabridge cable, and I have a feeling they're the same cable (probably same OEM). Chico confirmed the Monoprice cable to be 0.4ohms, so you should be set. I can't confrim the Mediabridge cable's resistance until about 8 hours from now. You can wait until I conform the resistance, but the Mediabridge cable is twice as expensive for probably the same exact cable.

As for the pads, as long as you're not wearing them while being all dirty or wet or something, the pads should last a long time. If anything happens, I'd just contact Philips for a pad replacement. Not sure how long they'll be in business, though they'll probably transfer all the warranties and repairs to Funai.

The worst kind of pads in terms of long use is cheap pleather, which start to flake.

I caught that. lol. I honestly which I could change my name, or start a new account, but I'm too well known as MLE. frown.gif

Too much infatuation with the seven sins. rolleyes.gif

That and Fullmetal Alchemist. biggrin.gif

Wow, Amazon for some stupid reason will NOT allow my K702 65 review to be posted. I edited the hell out of it and they still won't accept it. rolleyes.gif

Anyone know if the thick Monoprice cables have the same resistance?

I now have astro a50 but its mic problem is very annoying when talking quietly . I wonder if byerdynamic dt990 would250ohm pro (160) has better sound than a50? Fun wise. And u said it got strong clamp I also have a m50 and it hurts after 2hours of gaming I wonder if dt990 would hurt as bad? Thank you so much!

DT990's are far and away the most comfy pair I've ever owned. I could wear them all day with no issues at all. They will sound worlds better than the M50's for all applications and be a lot more comfy.


Thanks,


D

The A50 is nowhere near as good as the DT990 Pros. And the 990 Pros clamp less than the M50 (assuming you didn't bend the M50 for a looser fit.

Not sure, but I would strongly recommend NOT using the monoprice "premium" cables as a headphone cable.  They are super thick and super stiff and will likely destroy your jack.

I've already watched the original Fullmetal Alchemist.

Is the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood different enough to be worth it to watch,

or is it mostly close to same as the original Fullmetal Alchemint?

Like Chico said, avoid that cable like the plague. It's a incredibly bulky. Like having two thick cables paired into one. (THICK cables per each channel). But the one that looks like the Mediabridge cable. Same low resistance (0.4ohm). I confirmed it today.

Brotherhood is so good, it renders the original pointless. No, really. It's amazing. The story deviates from the original by quite a bit. New characters are introduced, and the way it ends, it may as well be a different story altogether.

Cool, I can add it to my Netflix list.
