post #5731 of 37452

I wish I could help. As always, I'm feeling lost and overwhelmed, haha. And hoping someone will point me in the right direction. If I do get anything, I am leaning toward the Q701 (assuming my amp can actually drive it -- if not, I will have to look elsewhere) because it seems to be a little bit more balanced between Mad Lust's fun and competitive categories. Having a competitive edge would be nice, but having fun with single player games is probably more important for me.

You know what bro! You just made my mind up. lol! Thanks man! You are so right. I'm not a huge hardcore competitive gamer on comparison to some people and I too enjoy many single player games like Dragon Age and Assassin's Creed. I think I'll go with the Q701, plus the price difference of 50 bucks will help a lot when buying an O2 and a mix amp pro. !>.<!

Lol, no problem. Glad I could help. I hope you like them.

 

Good comparison, chicolom. Thanks.

I'm not interested that much in the headset, but the Dolby Processing box looks like its gotten a revamp.

 

 

I did. But I don´t think there´s a big difference between the old and the new model. Cosmetic changes more or less. And they got rid of one cable by powering the headset through the box now.

 

And I did try the Star Wars blu ray yesterday switching back and forth between Dolby Digtal 5.1 (Spanish) and the "clean" signal from the DTS master. Both with DH on. 

Well, there obviously is a difference cause the DTS master with DH on sounded thinner than the real DD 5.1 signal. But I just turned up the volume a bit and still think the sound is good with DH on. Gives it more space than stereo.

So how does one achieve DH anyways besides using items like Turtle beach DDS and Astro Mix Amp or a Asus sound card?

Some AV receivers got built in dolby headphone.

 

If I watch some TV channel that has a "Dolby Digtal" track and I set my cable box to that track, then the mixamp has the right source material to process with DH. Is that correct?

I just bought the Q701 an the ant lion modmic.  Now selling my pc360 grill mod for $150.00 if anyone is interested.  Can't wait for the new edition!

I'm having a problem with my setup and I'm hoping someone here can help me. This is my signal chain:

Xbox 360 Slim
Optical cord
Tritton Ax720 decoder box
Creative Aurvana Live plugged into game side of Tritton connector.


The problem I'm having is a very intermittent static noise (happens maybe twice in an hour period) that lasts for about a second. It only happens in the left ear. Before I go about replacing parts of the chain, does anyone have any suspicions as to what may be the problem?

Thanks!

I have a new Zalman ZM-1 Mic brand new in box next to me and I'm not sure If I should return it. From what I've read the Zalman is a pretty good deal, but if you are willing to spend a little more money, there are better deals. I could return it at any time up until July, so I'm not sure if I should keep it or get an Antlion/Labtech LVA or something else.

Plenty of good cheap mics there.

 

Ant Lion Mod Mic - Also a good choice

Is it a burst of digital white noise or an analog hiss/static?

Final question before I go and purchase my AKG Q701s and my Antlion Modmic

I am not sure the Tritton AX720 top box can power my Q701s, let alone with a mic attached. I have a FiiO e6 with me now and I'm not sure I'll be getting any other amps for a while. I was planning on using the E6 along with the AKGs with bass boost on, but I'm not sure how this small amp will work along with the Tritton box. Could this setup work or will I have to purchase a e9?

Thread Starter 
The AX720 is more powerful than the Mixamp by a smidge, so yes. Not sure if the E6 will add any beneficial amounts of power as its a very weak amp. The E11 would've been a safer choice. The E5 and E6 I believe share the same power, and the E5 didn't even add an appreciable amount of volume to the Mixamp. People should realize that the difference between a few decibels in volume is quite a bit of power. Not sure how the math is, but I think in some instances, just a few decibels needs twice the power. The E5 barely made a difference when I added it to the Mixamp and trying to power harder to drive cans.

Ironically, I loved the K701 and E5 with bass boost on, though the sound was anything but K701-like.

It's a burst of digital white noise. Bad optical cable?

I'm not sure.  If you have another one I would try it though.  I thought when encoded signals aren't decoded correctly you can hear digital noise.  confused.gif

 

If it's digital noise it's probably in the cable or decoder box I'm guessing.
