And with turning the Mixamp on, it reaches his usually, uncomfortable volume level.

 

MLE said some posts ago, that he'd got a separate USB hub to solve that kind of problem. You folks think, this would solve my problem too? I tried a USB extention cable, without success. A USB splitter may work different...

 

Wait, just the outer casing of your PC and there's already static and distortion?

 

Perhaps you've tried this or perhaps not, but is your PC/PS3 properly grounded as well? Because it seems like anything that is electric conductive is causing the noise.

I noticed the same exact issue, I started using my phone charger instead of the xbox to power it, and the hum went away. Oddly enough, one charger made the hum present and another one didn't. Guess that one had the same issue as the Xbox.

Can't really find anything about them on google, I thought they would have gotten more attention since the AD700 are so popular for gaming.

I see Audio-Technica finally caught on to the AD700's gaming popularity...

 

"Other features of the headsets include a USB DAC (Digital Analogue Converter) engineered for the new line"

 

...if the headset's hard-wired to said DAC, that's an instant deal-breaker for PC gamers with sound cards and console gamers alike.

Well...AD700X/A700X w/mic.

It looks like it will fit similar to the AD700X, which means it won't pivot vertically - same as the AD700.

Hopefully Audio Technica wasn't stupid enough terminate it to a USB DAC instead of using universal headset plug.... blink.gif

Hey MLE,

I have no idea how many cups, at least a dozen along several design paths. The baffle was tough as well.

Dan should give this man a job... lol

MLE will be the Prophet, just living for our safe, secure and rich headphone future. One day there will just be the suit and his soul, no flesh, no bones, no tissue, all memory, experience and foresight. Being an expert in the field of heat dissipation, robustness, soundstage and military grade pinpoint accuracy most headphones will still fail his approval and be crushed instantly in his hands, without a single word.

I have to be careful of my words! eek.gif

I should contact Dan to see if he'd send me a loaner of the Alpha Dogs for review.

The only problem is that I no longer have a beastly amp to drive them...

MLE you should comment that headphones...should be cheaper.

MLE,

 

what are your known differences between E12 and O2 in pure sound/technicalities, excluding portability? Still deciding on a Mixamp double-amping solution.

I can't say, as I haven't heard the O2. I find the E12 to be quite neutral itself, which I know is what the O2 is known for (probably more so than the E12). I don't pick up any extra warmth which is known to be a product of Fiio's house sound. Comparing the E17's amp with the E12's... I can hear some extra warmth off the E17.
