So correct me if I'm wrong, but the Sennheiser 220 are better for totally wireless gaming than Astro A50s? I need wireless as well. Could anyone explain how I'd set this up on 360/ps4/x1?

The A30s I got sound like utter garbage, so it wasnt me. I dont like it at all. I still have to send mine back since they sound like they're mismatched.

What do you suggest to pair my akg k701 for the best positional (accurate) audio in bf4 ?

 

Thanks

What do you mean by "pair?"

Do you mean amp? Sound card? Is it for PC? Console?

Be specific, please. This is why many people's questions get overlooked... and they wonder why no one has responded...

Weak, weak man...

I'm still holding out as long as I can lol

I still have to get my 612 reterminated and maybe get some memory foam pads. The stock pads have softened up a bit... so my interest in the 712 pads is purely sonic based.

What are you thinking about selling? Hmmmmmmm?!?

1. How can I use it for games, do I need to select 7.1 in-game menu Stereo or Headphones ?

 

2. For example BF4 , Hi-Fi and Surround, is that the correct settings, or Hi-Fi Stereo ?

 

3. In movies, how is it possible to get surround in PotPlayer , PowerDVD13 and arcsoft Therater .

2. BF4 needs to be set in HiFi with stereo mode. Done and done. Dolby Headphone will take care of the rest.

Ok well maybe I should be very specific:

I need wireless. I think the Turtle Beach X41 sounded good until they broke. Are the Astro A50 better to justify the price for gaming purposes only?
post #20619 of 37296

I have a gaming pc and i am playing bf4 most of the time .So i would like to pair my akg k701 with a good sound card with build in headphone amp OR a sound card + external amp OR external sound card +external amp . One of these three if something is better that the other.

 

 

I would like good music playback but first i would like to have the best positioning audio when playing bf4 .

 

I dont like mess 3d sound with unspecific positions of tanks and helicopter and also loss of any footsteps .

@roguegeek? This is your specialty, isn't it? I'm on PS4 so I can't really help, here...

You have a couple different directions you can go. It's good you're talking about amping because the K701 does need some extra juice to get the most out of it. You'll also need a sound card with the codecs (CMSS-3D or Dolby Headphone) needed to get proper positional audio into your headphones.

 

My current gaming setup is a K702 AE amped by a FiiO E09K and then plugged into an X-Fi Titanium HD sound card. The E09K and X-Fi Titanium HD are a relatively cheap solution. You could also look the way of the Xonar STX as it has Dolby Headphone and a headphone amp built onto the card itself. It's a nice card, but not the best amp. Should still provide adequate power to the Q701.

 

Those are specific solutions for about $180 each. You could go cheaper, but these are really nice solutions for the price. What's your budget?

I can comment on external amping. The Matrix M-Stage pairs extremely well with all open AKGs I've tried... and would be a much better choice than the E9k... if his budget allows.

Heard so many great things about that amp. May look into it myself. It's a nice low risk price.

post #20625 of 37296

Thanks for this solutions . My budget is not going to be as much high a Matrix M-stage + audio card goes . What about something like the new sound blaster ZXR with and amp output of 300ohm ?I dont have any clue how good the 3d sound of the new Z-series are but with the Z and the zx and the zxr have an 300ohm amp built in
