Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1351

Mine either, but I want versatile headphones as I'm 17 and don't have a large enough income for multiple pairs of headphones. Again, I'll be using them for music (both On my PC and iPhone) as well as competitive gaming. With the XL earpads (to make the headphones semi-open), and the fact that the M-100s have an impedance of only 32 ohms, what would be the best possible sound card or DAC (or combination) for positional audio?

(if I could choose any 2 pairs of headphones it'd be the M-100s and either the Fidelio X1s or the AKG Q701s.)

Does the $150 need to include the shipping to Argentina?

Has anyone here used Razer Surround? I've been using it for a couple day's and i find it better than Dolby Headphone.

 

It's free on razors site if you want to check it out.

Just discovered this awesome thread and I have some questions:

I'm considering buying a mixamp and I'll probably go with either the DSS(2) or Astro Mixamp Pro, what I'm wondering is how the sound quality compares between them. Which one has less hissing? Better sound processing?

Also should I go DSS1 or 2? Astro Mixamp Pro 2013 or older version?

dss1 over dss2 for real dolby headphone surround sound. if your going to use chat get one of the mixamps, if not the dss1.

They may not look as cool as the Sony MDR-1Rs, but they are supposed to have absolutely amazing sound.


Thanks again for your recommendation for a comfortable pair of over the ear closed headphones.
Let us know what you think of the hp100 as I am torn between hp100 or dt770
Thanks

Hi fellas, Ive just switched from 360 to PS4 and need a mic could anyone recommend one to use with a y splitter connected to 5,8 mixamp. I use DT880s (32ohm) and Denon D2Ks for gaming but im thinking of selling the beyers and gettying the X1s would it be a worthwhile upgrade for gaming, Thanks.

I feel selling the 880s and getting the X1 is logical. you can buy the Vmoda boom mic, and you'll have an instant headset whenever you need it.

idk what to do...   I have an AD700 atm but could just get an AKG701 for 180€ without an good AMP. Currently i have an Xonar DG which has an low budget amp thats simply not good enough.   Would the akg701 without an amp be better then my AD700? 

 

I would buy an amp in ~2 month

Ok, this is going to sound extremely nub, I received my X1's this morning and I am trying to use a different cable other than the stock one, but I cant connect either the monoprice 3.5mm mobile cable or the V-Moda Audio cable into my Asgard 2. The gold plated mini jack adapter is to big for either of those cables and won't fit on them properly, so what do I do? is there some kind of special adapter that will fit onto these? there just standard 3.5mm cables on either end. It looks like the AKG K702 stock cable is larger than a normal 3.5mm cable so maybe thats why it fits properly with the provided adapter.

 

would any 3.5mm to 6.3 or 6.35mm adapter work?

 

I have them currently plugged into my PC sound card directly and wow these have some awesome bass lol. I'll try them directly from the astro mixamp later but I would like to get an adapter that lets me use the amp as well.

You'll need an adapter. The Asgard 2 has 1/4" output and those two cables are 1/8". Any adapter should work, if you have one handy just use it. Some companies include adapters like that with their 1/4" equipment. But I've never owned the Schiit A2 so I can't say if that one did or not.

That would work perfectly. You may also be able to pick one up locally for $1.50 and not mess with the shipping.

post #20265 of 37339

the thing is the annies came with an adapter like this, its just to big to fit onto any other size cable it seems because the annie cable has a larger piece connection from the looks of it than a standard 3.5mm. I suppose I can order one of those and try it out.
