Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 141

post #2101 of 37339

just a quick question, what settings in the Xbox 360's guide button do you use for voice chat when using the mixamp, with the 668b's or ad700's? can it go through "headset"? because i thought the headphone had to have a built in voice channel for that to work?

post #2102 of 37339

I have my Xbox set to play voice through a headset only. This has been what I've used for the past 3 headphones I've owned.

 

Since you connect your controller to the Mixamp with a chat cable you are effectively using a headphone with a "built in voice channel" regardless of what you connect to it.

Hit the guide button, go to the farthest right blade, hit Preferences, then Voice. The options are there.

Thank you, this is what i have been searching for for some time. If only there was an alternative as for me the mix amp is 160-5$(Australia).

I would actually buy second hand if i could.

I haven't been able to find any info at all on here yet so here it is:

 

The Official PS3™ Wireless Stereo Headset:

While I don't have extremely high expectations, I wonder how this will compare to budget setups such as AD700 + Mixamp. Clearly the integrated mic is a huge plus for us console gamers since there aren't many affordable solutions outside the PC360/PC350, and the fact that it's truly digital wireless is awesome; even less bulk and clutter than the Mixamp 5.8. I'm also very glad they're implementing 7.1 virtual surround instead of using a multiple driver setup. The $99 price tag seems too good to be true, but I'm hoping it will be a quality product for the price.

post #2106 of 37339

Sony's virtual surround headphone tech doesn't hold a candle to DH. I've used DH, Silent Cinema and Sony's VST and that's my order of preference when it comes to gaming while using ultrasone hfi2200's. I'd get it just for convenience but that would be about it. Amazon had them on preorder sale for either $70 or $80 a couple weeks back. I didn't preorder because I don't need to be wireless and I already have a HK receiver with DH.

post #2107 of 37339

What HK are you using Calpis? I'm using the AVR 354 and it works absolutely fantastic for DH-plus a completely black noise floor unlike the DSS which I then gave to my little brother.

 

As a side story: this was $600 receiver just a year or so ago. Someone was was selling it on Craigslist for $40 because it stopped putting out any sound whatsoever after a year of solid use he said. I bought it, took it home, and gave it a firmware update and it now works 100% perfect!ly in every area! I've been feeling pretty giddy these past few days as you might imagine!

I'm using an AVR 254 that I traded a pair of TMA-1 headphones for with a friend of mine. Yeah, them HK's are pretty **** black, I love it.

post #2109 of 37339

Sorry if anyone's offended or anything like that with my views, but honestly I did not hear it. It's not that I am trying to downplay the issue, I was just reporting my experience with the DSS. The most like reason is probably because I've never heard the Mixamp.

I'm not trying to brag that I have super ears either, I can barely hear a difference from a dt990 amped through an iMac vs little dot anyways. Simply put, the quiet nature of the mixamp makes quiet scenes in single player mode much more believable. I do agree the feature the mixamp has over the dss though is its support for true voice chat and chat volume mixing for every headphone on the market.

As for the d2000s, they are great for gaming, but movies are where I feel they truly shine with dh.

I for one think it's a pretty overblown issue here-having owned both the Mixamp and DSS for some time. It's more of something I noticed, rather than something that hindered my experience in any way. For someone who doesn't need a chat volume control-I think the DSS is the much better bargain-especially those who are mainly into SP gaming and movies.

I think this has been the position of most of us that have commented on the hiss in this thread...at least that's my feeling on it. Like I said before, it's not a deal breaker at all but I figured that it should be mentioned for those that care about that sort of thing.

E7 is mainly a DAC.. u don't  need it if you already have E9 and a console (or a decent soundcard if you play on PC)

Keep in mind that Ultrasone Proline is an older series that has been superceded by the Pro series.
