2- Music, I listen to music verry often so thats also really important.
And yes i read reviews about CAL but they dont appeal to me. (Dont know why)
I was thinking about this set up:
Xonar DG. 30 euros
TB DSS amp 75 eu.
PC350/ HD595 / AD700.
But the two headsets you linked are accesable in the Netherlands atleast the superdeluxe, but its only 30 euro's. How can that be better than a PC360 ect. ?


I own the CALs, worked great until I broke one of the cups off, nice sound.

But the cups are small, the diaphragm seem to be about 1mm from your ear, not something I would want to wear for long periods of time.

That is some great info. Now I can scratch them off my list and bump getting a pair of Portapros ahead of them.

Since I re-ordered the mixamp I decided to get them with the astro headphones just for sake of curiosity.

 

They are far worst than the 770's and antlion mic mod.

post #4294 of 37364

Yep, they sound horrible. The build quality is very sub-par as well.

I want to get a gaming headset for the PS3.

 

I was thinking of getting the Mixamp Pro and the Sennheiser PC360.

 

Before I pull the trigger, do you think that would be the best combo?

 

Someone was saying the A40 headphones are better.

 

Any other suggestions?

Whomever told you the A40s are better clearly don't know what they're talking about. The PC360 and MMX300 are the two best headsets on the market, no gimmicks.

I'll chalk it up to OLED's not being perfectly uniform with it's blacks in a very dark room. Normally, not an issue with others, but my main time playing with the Vita WILL be in the dark... can't have it all.


How are you spotting them? Is it like backlight bleed on an lcd? I've had my Vita since last week and haven't really noticed anything. As long as it's something I can replicate that doesn't involve Uncharted because I traded that game in a few days ago.

I would still say Sens. You really don't want the AD700 for general music.

PC350 take to much modding to make them sound good.

So HD595, HD558, HD598 I would research those.

Find a completely black image or very dark background. Now view them while you yourself are in a very dark room with almost no ambient light. You should see some black spotting on the screen.

Looks like the adhesive used to bond the screen or something.

The boot up screen with the PS logo shows this as well, but it goes by too quickly.

If you are going to be playing on pc and getting the sound card. You have no reason to get the dss. It will give you the same effect your sound card will. Its not ment to be a desktop amp. So I doubt it would power headphones much better than the sound card.

Unless you want to also game on consoles and your computer does not already have optical out stick with just the sound card.

Ah okay, I see them now. Pumping up the brightness to max made it more visible. I have 2 spots about the size of a grain of rice on the left half and a few specs here and there. It's really no biggy for me since all the games I've been playing have a pretty vibrant color palette and the only time they are apparent is when it is completely black and in a pitch black room. I also turn the brightness to its almost lowest setting while playing games to reduce eye fatigue.

I usually play at the lowest brightness myself.

Mine is more than a few specks but I'll have to live with it as the first one was horrible, and don't wanna take another chance and getting another bad one. Just one of those things we have to live with. It just really irks me during semi dark scenes. Looks like the screen has dust in it or something.

Ahh so you only need an amp if you play on consoles?
post #4304 of 37364

Yeah, I went back and looked at the picture you took and that thing was half covered in black splotches when it should've been a dark grey. My phone has an amoled screen and its perfectly uniform dark grey.

Here are your options to get Dolby Headphone out of your computer:

a sound card that has Dolby Headphone built-in -> Amp (optional) -> Headphones

a sound card that outputs a Dolby Digital 5.1 signal via optical -> DSS or Mixamp -> Amp (optional) -> Headphones

 

Here are your options to get Dolby Headphone out of your console:

console connected to a DSS or Mixamp or a Receiver that has support for virtual surround headphones (sony, yamaha, harmon kardon) -> Amp (optional) -> Headphones

 

This is an over simplified explanation but this is what you basically need.
