^This. the Wired Mixamp is more robust and better sonically than the 5.8 (little to no hiss on the wired), so if you're close to whatever the Mixamp is plugged into, it's best to get the wired. the 5.8 is a great product, but I wouldn't get one over the wired if you're gonna be thethered or close to your gaming rig.

The T1 uses a more sensitive driver, so the Mixamp has an easier time driving it than the 600ohm Mid fi beyers. Not meaning it sounds at it's best off just the Mixamp, but that it just doesn't have to strain as hard. The Mixamp really needs an amp to push any of the Premium Beyers, IMHO. Even the 32ohm sounded a bit weak without extra amping for my taste.

Mad Lust Envy thank you!

Could you tell me if the mixamp fit in 250?
Should I take the 32 ohms?
This is it less efficient in the medium?

xjacker messaged me about this product and was nice enough to tell me they'd send me one for review, but I honestly don't feel I can review it fairly as it's a stereo amp, and not a Dolby headphone one. In any case, it's $20, and seems to do what some people would need, which is give them an amp to plug in their headphones+mic with like the Steelseries Spectrum Audio Mixer, but with more power, and cheaper cost.

Somebody who hates Dolby headphone and just wants a gaming amp + mic solution should get one and give us a review. I honestly can't.

I believe if you're NOT gonna use a mic with the Beyers, the Mixamp can power the 32 and 250ohm alone well enough (voice/game knob must be turned all the way towards the game side, meaning absolutely no power being fed to voice chat). The 600ohm can clip/distort without extra amping. Though the Mixamp will drive it to piercing volumes. If you plan on using a mic... then yes, you WILL need an external amp to help the Mixamp, even with the 32ohm, IMHO. The difference between the 32ohm and 600ohm on the volume knob wasn't that much, tbh, but volume doesn't = driving force.

MLE just want to confirm- So it is NOT possible to use the HDP or E9 in combination with the mixamp 5.8?

post #1522 of 37467
Thread Starter 
I already said yes... o_O

Mixamp -> Mixamp's headphone out -> E9/HDP/any other amp's line in -> headphone.

If you're using a mic, plug that into the Mixamp, not the HDP/E9.

This is how I game with my HE4, and my previous harder to drive cans.

Oh yes, you'll wanna max out the Mixamp volume and control volume with the E9/HDP/other amp.

500

This was on Page 18. XD But yes... this is somewhat of the setup. The E9 doesn't need a 3.5mm to RCA, but a 3.5mm male/male, as the Line In is a 3.5mm instead of an RCA input.

Mad Lust Envy If I take the DT 600 + the Fiio E9, I could safely use the Voice chat?

 

The best combination for DT600?

 

Thank you for the schematics ;)

Never heard the DT600. I assume you meant the 600ohm beyers like the DT880/600 and DT990/600.

I meant that if you add the E9 AFTER the Mixamp, that it would help the Beyers. The mic still needs to be directly plugged into the Mixamp, but yes, the E9 adds plenty for the 600ohm Beyers.

Sorry, I spoke well of DT900 to 600 ohms.

I would not have a bad surprise?

Someone on this forum he would use this set (+ E9 + mixamp DT900/600)?
Could we talk about the game experience?

It's a fantastic experience. Positioning is top notch, bass is impactful and immersive, treble is... well the DT990 is a special case in terms of it's treble, lol. You will either think the treble is so sharpit cuts your ears, or will tolerate them. The mids are incredibly detailed, but distant which is not gonna be a surprise due to the bass and treble being the stars of the show, but they aren't gone. The E9 is also a bit rich in the mids, so the DT990's benefits here.

Thank you, that's what I wanted to hear:)

I'll take all Fiio E7/E9 (170 ) because I have a Cowon J3.

So I have to buy a small RCA cable 3.5mm male / male.

A cable that must be what capacity? You have an internet link, maybe?

I honestly just use one of the supplied cables that came with one of my Mixamps.

BTW, the E7 is useless in this equation. Get the E7 only if you need a DAC for your computer. It will do absolutely nothing when using the E9 attached to the Mixamp.

Interesting. I havn't noticed any hiss with the DSS+AD700. Do you know if the DSS and Mixamp put out the same amount of power? I know the AD700's don't need much to drive, but am wondering in case I get different headphones later one down the line.
