'Of all the things I've read about the mixamp, one thing I've never read is that there are some mics that don't work with it...

So would it work with the xbox one over optical..so it would be using the ath adg1 and mix amp for chat and not the xbox one controller?

^this

Even a standard in-line mic cable that comes with most portables will work with it...

I've used multiple in-line mics from other headphones with my MixAmps over the past few years and haven't come across one that doesn't work yet. I had the First gen Mixamp and now have the MixAmp Pro.

That's a function of the Xbox, not the Mixamp.  You still need the cable going into your controller no matter which DSP you use.  I can't speak as to how it needs to be setup specifically, since I have never used a Mixamp.  But I suspect there's plenty of stuff on their website.

Not for me, for our australian friend who was asking about the best set up for his xbox one.. I said get the astro mix amp either with the ath adg1 or the adx700 and mic..just making sure he gets everything he needs..that's all!

I will say that I haven't used the PC Mic input on the backside of the MixAmp, but when I use this in the front, it works just fine with mics separate from headphones.

Good lord, earbuds for $250?  Clearly I'm out of the loop as my preconceived notions are that there's no way you can get the sound of a 50mm driver out of teeny little in-ear drivers.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! I've had numerous IEMs that sound better than some full sized headphones!

All I can say is just stay away from IEMs. Save your wallet, and stay away...

You would really be surprised. When I had my Westone 4r, the separation is so good because there are different drivers for different parts of the spectrum, and because of that everything can be so much more precise. I only don't have IEMs because I'd rather have headphones on my head and get the proper sound immediately rather than finding the seal before I listen. That annoys me.

Yup! That was one of them! :wink_face:

Alrighty. So after looking on Amazon (.com) at the Fidelio X1, I saw that I can get them for right around $275 after shipping and customs to Canada. I definitely would prefer these in terms of convenience as I wouldn't have to get a mic like the modmic or a clip on mic and instead I can just order up the Boom Pro for another $30. I'm just not so sure about how much of a competitive edge I will get over the Astros and how much worse these are than the Q701 for competitive use. Can anyone tell me if the Pro setting on the Astro Mixamp will make the X1 a lot more like the Q701? Should I go with the Q701 with the modmic (or even one of Zombie_X's adapters and the Boom Pro) or should I go with the Fidelio X1 as a more all around music/gaming/movie headphone along with the Boom Pro?

 

Also, do the V-moda cables that come with the M-80s (the standard audio cables) work well with the X1?
