Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1257

post #18841 of 37441

Just got a Xonar Essence ST. Sound is really great with my also new 990 pro´s. Except the treble is a bit much sometimes but I´m getting used to it I guess. 

Not sure about Dolby Headphone. Voices sound a bit as if they are coming from behind or around me. But so far I´ve only tried AC3. Anything else I should do apart form enabling DH in the Sonar control panel?

 

Also I´m looking to get an extension cord, would a phono 6,3mm male to female plug be the way to go right?

You need to make sure that the Xonar U3 in the control panel (not the soft ware panel) is set to 7.1.

Did you disable the motherboard's on-board audio? in the BIOS

Are you using the 64-300 gain setting?

I see the Beyerdynamic DT990 made it into your top list. Have you heard/seen the new T70p by Beyer or have any idea as to how they compare?

The DT990 Pro 250-Ohm are not really at the "top of the list", It's just the easiest way to list the headphones.

(The DT770s are good all around headphones, but my ATH-A900X are better for music)

The Beyerdynamic T70 (250-Ohm) do sound really nice, great sound quality, not a headphone for a basshead.

And to think I know a friend who absolutely HATES that game, particularly by contrast to how much he loves Max Payne 1 and 2.

 

By comparison, he can at least get some fun out of DmC, even if he recognizes it for the travesty it is for another one of his beloved franchises.

 

Yeah, tastes in video games are a funny thing...

Me? Guess I just launch the control panel in the task bar and everything seems to work very well.

Yep disabled in the BIOS. I hade the highest options selected, as recommended in the OP. But I should selecct the 64-300 I guess, since the 990´s are 250 ohm? It does actually sound ok, but for music I prefer having DH switched off. Looking forward to doing some more gaming with it! Now I just need to figure out how to connect my Creative Gigaworks II loudspeakers to the card (yes yes I know, Creative product on a hifi fourm and all that:rolleyes:).

Setting the gain on it that high has nothing to do with impedance. It's a stupid setting that should always be set to the highest level, since all it's doing is limiting the volume of the device. There is no such thing has changing an amp's output impedance by software. It's just throttling the volume.

Unless you have a headphone so sensitive that even one touch of the volume varies the decibels greatly, it's not worth using.

Ok thx for that info will keep it on the highest settings then. Any idea on how to connect the Creative Gigaoworks 2 Speakers to the card? They use a minijack to minijack cable only it seems. Could I use a mini jack to phono splitter ?

How I wish the EQ on the u3 was better... Actually it is rubish.
