what adapter is needed to plug in xbox 360 control without mixamp? want to see if i can use this with my X1.
The TH-600 came in today via Justin at Headamp. First off, if you don't know Justin he is a stand up guy. For anyone that does not know, he has a demo thread where he sends out quality headphones to those who sign up... http://www.head-fi.org/t/645941/headamp-headphone-demos-audeze-fostex-hifiman-sennheiser-stax-sign-up-now
My very initial impressions of the Fostex with DH were extremely disappointing....until I added an amp to the mixamp. Then everything changed. Positional cues especially rear cues are the best I have ever heard. Better than the HD-800 even. The sense of space and sound stage is enormous and spot on. I figured these were going to be beast when I initially heard them a month or so ago at a head-fi meet, but I never expected this. Truly phenomenal for gaming. Off to listen more......
Did you pair it with the E12?
I am thinking about a TH-600 sometime for console gaming.
Hey I just have a quick question regarding the gain setting on the Asgard 2, theres low and high, I'm not really sure which setting I should be using with the Annies.
I've been mostly using it with low since the headphones are 62 ohms, but I've also tested high and it makes the volume and everything just much louder, basically on low gain i tend to leave the amp at 9-10 o clock but on high gain depending on the game i leave it lower or else it gets to loud lol.
although high gain mode almost sounds like everything is much more detailed and clear sounding.
Good point there Madlustenvy
I forgot to say that my Burson DAC is broken, and only work with coaxial input, used by my M2tech from my imac, for music. I bought it second hand, and the seller..Well, it robbed me, you could say that. Either way, since I'm in Reunion island, and FAR from everything, returning the Burson to Poland (where Burson european after sale is), well it was a no go (cost plus waiting).
So I'm forced to used the soloist second analogue input, thus, the U7 that got the analog out, but as you said, I'm NOT sure this will retain the whole dolby surround stuff.
Thing is, the U3 + Fiio is so close, money wise, to the cost of U7, it made me hesitate (less items, but as you said, they are so little, it can be hiden.
If the U3 is the only way to send the surround sound to the soloist, then, I'll go that way, but as I said, I hesitated because of the "one item" thingy..Hope you understand my point.
Alright, I just received my Mixamp pro 2013 as I sent it for repair due to hissing/buzzing noise when you turn the knob to 2/3 of the way (between middle to MAX). However, although they said it was fixed and tested before shipping back to me the hissing noise was still there.
I've sent an email to them and they told I'll have to use different USB cable or different headset. Trying out different cables and headsets resulted in same problem.
With that being said, I would like a clarification if this is normal or not. I've asked this question before but after reps from Astro gaming confirmed that it is "not" normal (hence, that's why I sent it back for repair) I'm not quite sure if it is or not.
