If you feel like tossing the D7000's, please toss them my way smile.gif

 

Do they have warranty still?  I'm sure Denon will take care of it.

I've read some reviews on amazon saying that the PC 360 is only at its max potential when using an amp or a dedicated sound card. I am interested in getting this headset to be used on my laptop but I am worried that it'll be underpowered. I game mainly on the PC so the Mixamp is not an option for me. Suggestions?

 

Edit: The FiiO E7 looks nice :D I've always preferred USB sound cards over integrated on-board and I can't be bothered to buy dedicated ones.

Edit2: I play mostly FPS games like CS, COD4, TF2. Other than FPS games (which I play competitively), I really don't care about positional audio.

It will be probably worthless without some kind of positional audio algorithm. If your game doesn't have one you'll need to use something like the mixamp. It takes optical in so all you need is an optical out for your laptop.

Razer carcharias is not as good as the sennheisers, but considering the price I think it is a great value. I compared it to my pc 360 and it is a bit bassier and the mids are not as good as on the pc360. I could hear footsteps in gears of war from farther distancies, I belive that was due to the more bass it has. It is also closed compared to the open style of pc360 which I prefer. IT was a huge surprise for me, I didn't expect it to be that good.

Hey guys, I'm going to be moving into a small apartment soon and I'm going need to be able to use 2 sets of headphones at the same time, my HD-555s and Shure SRH-840s.  Do any of you know if there is a system out there that allows this?  From my own research the Astro 5.8 MixAmp allows this but I would prefer a wired solution as I don't want to have to charge the batteries all the time.  Also I stress I would need to have both powered at the same time because the wife will want to watch TV/play games with me.

Did you see my post in your other thread about this?  It should answer your question:

 

 

The AX720 has two ports - one is for headphone out and one is for microphone in.  So you can't power 2 headphones at the same time that way, but you can get an adapter I talk about below...

 

Are you going to need for you and your wife both to be able to voice chat?  Or just using headphones without voice chat. 

 

If you both are going to be using headsets (with mics and voice functionality) The mixamp is the only that will support two headsets working from one amp by either:

 

      1)  using the "powered splitter" accessory, or

      2)  buying an additional RX receiver to pair with the Tx amp - probably quite costly in Canada

 

but all the amps will support two headphones with just a standard splitter. 

Here's a nifty splitter that has separate volume controls

 

In fact, if you don't play online and don't need voice at all, the DSS (which is the cheapest of the three) does a fine job IMO.  I own both the Mixamp 5.8 and DSS.

 

As for the mixamp using batteries, if you plug in a usb cable it gets power that way and doesn't need batteries.

Sorry I didn't see the other post you made since I haven't checked that thread since it wasn't as active as this one.  Anyways voicechat isn't something that's needed by either of us actually.  If I used a splitted would that be enough to power both at the same time though?  I found an authorized reseller here in Canada but it's still substantially more expensive than the AX720 option.  I guess my other question is, if I got the Astro MixAmp (non-wireless), could I use the powered splitter with it to power both headphones?  Would there actually be enough power in it to power both?  Thanks again.

post #956 of 37327

Also, would any normal splitter be enough or would the 2 of them together on one unit require the powered splitter?

I think a normal splitter would be enough.  The main purpose of the powered splitter is to work with two headsets

 

How much is the DSS in Canada?  It should be cheaper than the AX720.

 

You're aware that the wireless mixamp does not need batteries if you plug in USB right?  Same as the wired mixamp.

Actually, would the Earforce with the Astro Powered Splitter work?  The problem with all these amps is that I can't find any sort of specs on them.  =\

post #959 of 37327

I'd actually buy the Earforce off Amazon in the US because of the exchange rate right now and save $20.  If the powered splitter is not required, that's even better really.

I think that the Ultrasone Pro 900 are amazing, I can hear everyone. I just knife people around cause I hear every footstep of them in the map. that' not even in search and destroy on modern warfare it's on free for all, and that's without the Mixamp, I don't wanna know what's gonna happen when I get the Mixamp, Honestly.
