I live in the UK so the one i'm looking at will be a little easier to get. Do you know if It will work for my PS4 out of the box.

I don't know anything about which version it is, but this whole guide is all about people using the Mixamp with their consoles.  I'd be very surprised if it didn't work with your PS4.  The only think I can imgaine you'd might need is a random cable or something.

That's a 2011 Mixamp. It will work just fine. As long as it comes with or you have a mini usb as well as optical cable, you're golden.

I managed to figure out how to get a set of headphones working with the Xbox One with game audio and voice chat using this guide as a core.

Here is what you need: (What I used)

Headphones (ATH-W11r)
Surround Processor (Turtle Beach DSS)
Mic (Modmic 2.3)
Optical Cable
PC Headset 2 female 3.5mm to mobile phone male 3.5mm adapter
female 3.5mm to 2 male 3.5mm adapter
Xbox Chat Adapter
1/4 to 3.5mm adapter (if necessary)

So it gets a bit complicated, but here goes:

Headphones to 1/4 to 3.5mm adapter

3.5 mm adapter to female 3.5mm to 2 male 3.5mm adapter

One male end of the 2 male 3.5mm adapter goes to the DSS
The other male end goes to the headphone female 3.5mm of the PC Headset adapter 

DSS goes to Xbox one via optical cable
PC Headset adapter goes to Xbox One controller via Xbox Chat Adapter

Modmic goes to mic female 3.5mm of the PC Headset adapter.

Essentially you're setting it up like a legacy headset for xbox one. It was crazy figuring out all the adapters, but I did it and it worked very well for Titanfall. 

I hope these directions help someone who wants to implement this guide for an Xbox One.

Feel free to PM if you have any questions or want to know what adapters I used.

I listed out instructions earlier in the thread, but they are easily missed. Feel free to PM if you have any questions.

It was a decent little mini guide, maybe Mad can add a hyperlink inside the guide for others to reference? Quote me:

Anyone help me out with finding a foam windscreen thing in the UK that will fit snugly over the BoomPro mic? The one I have off a Turtle Beach headset is far too big and slides off all the time.

What about one that comes off clip on microphones like the ones on my first post?

I contacted V-MODA in regards to my defective BoomPro. They are going to send me out a replacement today. Great customer support! I will be purchasing V-MODA products in the near future.

Glad to hear they're getting it sorted out. I've only had good dealings with them so far and I'd love to continue to do business with them.

I liked your updated DSP demo video, I'm gonna steal it for my guide wink.gif I'm also gonna make a video demonstrating various headphone setups, so people can see how that can look. Didn't end up having time to eat AND prettify my PS4 setup post... but I will, and link/credit JHex2 for writing it up for XBO.

I can't find your link for the DX mic or the generic lapel I found on Amazon on your guide anymore, and under your "lists" spoiler you've got a Chico heading I don't think you mean to have there.

Six star support. I'd love to see a fully curcumaural version of the M80, the M-100 is good but tune it like the M80 (with better extension, like it has now but with less bass slightly more mids) and make the earcups a bit wider in circumference... this is probably not the best place to post suggestions, but I'm sure Axel will back me up that V-MODA is a surprise and makes very capable closed headphones.
