Yeah, but that was the Aussie branch who couldn't do anything for me. I'll contact the usa branch...eventually. lol.



So got my PS4, and maaaaan is it crippled atm. Took an eternity just to set up some settings that needed an internet connection. Bought Killzone off the Amazon digital downloads, and the ps4 states I have 99 hours until it's completed. Even downloading Amazon Instant Video took an eternity. I hope by the time I come home tomorrow morning, it's running somewhat ok.

Some settings are either missing, or takes Indiana Jones to find. Hell, to turn off remote play on my Vita, I literally have to turn on the ps4 controller so that the Vita gets kicked off. It's not intuitive. Something as simple as changing the profile avatar is nowhere to be found.

I hope it's just because psn is so messed up on ps4 atm.

Navigating through the menus just takes some getting used to, but I get what you mean.

 

As far as download times... they're long but not 99 hours long; at least not for me. My internet has 30mbps download speed; just to give an idea of what I'm working with. NBA 2K14 downloaded while my friend and I played a quick match... so about 1 hour or so for 46gb. And I let BF4 download overnight... so no idea there.

If I wasn't trying to get through a game backlog, I'd be right there with ya. I'll probably get most of my games on disc... Crazy that a disc can store 50 GB ph34r.gif
I'm pretty confident that after the initial activation frenzy, you'll have a better experience.

If I had a following like you do... I'd do a write-up for the guide. But lately, I haven't been producing much. Who knows, maybe I'll get something done on thanksgiving, but once Black Friday hits I'll probably disappear for a while, lol.

I'm disappearing after my last surprise comes in on Tuesday. I had to return an IEM that I bought on a impulse, and exchanged it for something I've been wanting to try for a while (also to avoid a restocking fee). It's still mid-fi, and won't be too surprising to some in here if they're familiar with what I already have... and like.

 

As a result, I might have a couple goodies for sale, soon... :cool:

I hope to read some 1540 impressions from someone I'm familiar with, used to similar headphones. Still rockin your K712's? I want to play with mine, but I know if I start now I'll be exhausted in the morning wink.gif
I still can't get myself to sell my Q701 though, lol.

Yeah, I still have a "current-gen" backlog of about 10+ games I need to get through.

 

I think I'll get games on disc when possible too.  I like having a physical collection of cases and box art.  Plus transporting 40gb games around isn't really possible without that convenient blu-ray disc.  A 40gb download game seems highly unportable.

Yea I'm still rockin my K712s, very often, though what I have coming in may replace them... ;)

 

As for the 1540, here are some that I posted in the 1540 thread, for now...

 

Quote:
 Midrange and treble seems linear but not recessed at all. The bass has great impact without overshadowing the rest of the frequency... making it a rather enjoyable fun headphone. Soundstage is pretty wide for it to be a closed headphone... and is actually one of the largest I've heard among that category falling slightly behind the HP100.

 

Quote:
Man, do these pack some punch compared to what I'm used to. I had already shipped out the MDs before the 1540 arrived; so I couldn't do any A/B-ing. The 1540 has a significant bass emphasis, compared to the MD 3.2, while still maintaining great detail and extension without hampering it's frequency. Nothing is recessed... so no need to think these are U-Shaped by any means.
 
The K712 PRO is very similar to the MD in sound signature (slight differences being large soundstage, slightly less bass and slightly more upper mids). So, in the end, I am appreciating the 1540 a little more because it has an extremely "fun" sound signature to compliment the reference sound of the K712. Not that the MD 3.2 wasn't fun or a great compliment, itself, it was just too similar and I always felt the need for a little more bass, sometimes.

 

Quote:
Well, I ordered a pair of Alpha pads and can say the 1540 responds very well to them while adding the extra isolation I needed. The changes in sound is nothing too dramatic, but it does tighten the bass up slightly.
 
Getting a good fit was a bishh, though, as the angle of the pads along with the angle of the drivers were not cooperating with each other. I finally just kept turning the pads until I found a decent fit by having the angles facing the top of the headphones. It's a tight fit, but still really comfy and with a better sound to it's low end, IMO.

^ Cool info, thanks. Not "my" kind of headphone, but sounds like something worth suggesting to others. Comparing it directly to the M-100 would be interesting... maybe I'm a hypocrite for saying it's not my kind of headphone when I own an M-100, LOL. Sometimes it's fun to have variety.

Also... Even looking through your post history I can't guess what headphone you're going for now with any certainty. HE-500? I've just not been on Head-Fi as much, too much work (and now Tiny Death Star, I only just managed to kick my Guardian Cross addiction and only two weeks later picked up a new iOS addiction!).

Chico,
I'm in line with everything you just said.

If the HE-500 was available where I had to do the exchange it would have definitely been my choice. I will say that I almost bit on an HE-500 when Razordog had given me an offer I almost could not refuse, but did...

 

As for what I'm getting, you will soon see my friend lol... :ph34r:

Is there any way I could reap the benefits of a Xonar DG's Dolby Headphone while using the desktop DAC/amp instead of the soundcard for processing like this?

 

Xonar DG -> DAC/amp -> headphones

post #17983 of 30935

I have been saying how to do that in basically every single mention of Xonars here.

In the software, there is an option to change the audio out to spdif (optical out). Also to change the signal to PCM. Enable dolby headphone, and voila, digital out with dolby headphone, for your dac/amp.

So I got my PS4 live streaming on twitch.

For the PS4 owners...


My Skullcandy PLYR1s work but I'm not sure if I'm configuring them properly.

 

I have my Audio Output Settings set to:

Primary Output Port: Digital Out (Optical)
Audio Format (Priority): LPCM

 

When I try and play a movie in Netflix that supports 5.1, Netflix only allows me to select Stereo instead DD 5.1 Plus. Changing Primary Output Port to HDMI brings back the 5.1 audio option in Netflix. But this setting goes against the setup I had on the PS3. I also found instructions on the Astro forums also stating that you should be explicitly setting this to optical.

 

I noticed that my receiver lights up with LPCM and PL II (Dolby Pro Logic II) when using optical setting versus just LPCM when using the HDMI one. I guess multi-audio output is just the default now versus a toggle on PS3?

 

So yeah I'm confused...which settings should I be using for my headsets to get proper the proper virtual 5.1?
