Are you using this on your PC, Xbox, or PS3? Xbox: is your controller connected to your mixamp? PS3: do you at least have the 2010 revision of the mixamp and is it plugged into your PS3's usb port? If you don't have the 2010 revision, do you have the ps3 chat cable connected?

Probably because that mic only has one division (mono), and the Y splitter is made for devices with 2 divisions (stereo)?

I assume you would need a mono to stereo adapter to make it work.

My most recent headphone I used for gaming was the DT 770 Pro 80 with the Mixamp 5.8. The sound is great, but I'm looking for something open with a wider soundstage. I have the Dealextreme clip on mic and it works fine. 
 
I'm looking at either the Q701 or the PC360. I will be using this for music as well, so I'm leaning towards the Q701. However, I have heard comments that the Q701 has an unnaturally large soundstage. Can anyone share their experiences with these two headphones?

but i used the splitter to see if it worked on my laptop and it did record my voice...

 

ill buy an adapter hopefully my 7330 doesnt take too long to get here

Does your laptop have a single jack that does microphone in and headphone out? IDK, man. The only thing I can see different between your mic and the 7330 is the number of divisions.
post #2123 of 37320

There is something else going on there, it's def not the divisions.  I use the deal extreme clip on with the mixamp on my ps3 with zero issues.  The DE clip on looks virtually identical to the mic he posted in that link.

Wanted to update this -- I was correct in that the bass enhancer does nothing for the sound when using the mixamp 5.8 through a PC-USB connection.

I don't have any problems with the K702 soundstage at all.

 

Maybe ppl that have both cans (MLE among others) can give you a direct comparison.

I never had any problems with it's soundstage either. I also think if someone did find it weird or whatever, that they'd get used to it fairly quickly anyway-especially with games. My .02

I'm a competitive gamer (played CS 1.6 during CAL Season 15 and 16) and dabble in competitive TF2 (pug Scout).  Looking to get into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive when it drops.  I'm looking for open cans with the best soundstage under $400 UNAMPED (I might be attending events, and even if it's a portable amp, it's a bit of a hassle).  From your suggestions, it looks like the HD598 and DT990 32 Ohm fit my needs the best.  How does the Audio Technica ATH-AD900 stack up to these?  Which of these are the best for positional audio unamped?  Thanks in advance.

 

Also, does anbody know how the Hifiman HE-300 will be for PC gaming?

DT 990 for cempetition play? No. Unamped...but...out of a Mixamp? If so the K702 will be best if you don't mix in chat. If not those, I'd look and an Ultrasone 2400 (open) before looking at the AD700. Any of these will be perfectly good though for you needs.

Thanks for the reply.  I wasn't considering the HFI 2400, but after doing some research, they seem like a good buy.  I wonder how they stack up against the AD900, though, since they're both around the same price.  The AD900 fixes everything that people hated about the AD700 from the reviews I've looked at.

 

Also, like I mentioned in my last post, does anybody know how good the Hifiman HE-300 would be for gaming?  I know for serious gaming, it probably isn't really a contender, but just for all-around use (music and gaming unamped), how is it?

I found the AD900 a terrible headphone in every way, it has no bass, even with my Essence STX, on the other hand my Ultrasone PRO 2900s are the best gaming headphones I have heard yet, the combination of Slogic and Dolby is magical. I'm not a competitive player, but they do a great job in Fallout and other games where atmosphere is key. The 2400 should be very good as well.

What I didn't like about the AD900 was that the soundstage sounded congested, it sounded like all the sounds were cramped together when there was a lot going on, what was great about them though is the sense of air behind the sound, but air won't help you in competitive gaming, you want accuracy. The 598 is more accurate, but I would consider it unusable unamped, its very grainy and under-powered sounding. Unfortunately my gaming computer was not working when I tried out the 598 so I only heard it through on board sound.

The AD900 was good unamped, my Ultrasones terrible, but the 2400 is supposedly a lot less demanding than my 2900s and meant to be run unamped.

My old Grados had really good positioning direction wise, but did not sound believable at all.
