Get a sennheiser headset like the u320!

I am using MA900/modmic to 2011 mixamp on my PS4. Does anyone have issues with Voice Chat not being loud enough? I have to max out the mixamps volume introducing hiss in my listening and have the voice knob turned all the way to almost max to hear anyone. If I even bump towards game volume I get completely deafened. I am wondering is anyone else having this problem?

I have the same setup, but using a DX mic instead of the modmic. I can't say, as I have my E17 attached to the Mixamp for more power to the MA900. I don't wanna tweak the volume on my Mixamp, since it distorts so much when I adjust it. I have left it at 70% with the game/voice knob entirely on game. Been that way for months. Sure, I can't hear chat through my MA900, but haven't had a need to yet. I may pick up Ghosts, since games are pretty slim pickings right now, and I don't think I'll be enjoying KZ for too long.

How loud are open headphones? Loud enough to be picked up by modmic?

No, unless you're shattering your ear drums. Never heard an open headphone loud enough to be picked up by any mic. My MA900 is vented and as open as it gets, and the mic doesn't pick it up. My mic does pick up the fan though...

A condenser mic might but again, it's unlikely :D

Do these headphones tend to go on sale online on Black Friday?

I',m sure you'd find some. Headphones go on sale a lot throughout the year.


BTW guys, interesting... the Xonar U3 works on the PS4. No way to adjust it's settings, and functions basically the same as the PS4's controller audio jack, and any other standard USB adapter with the only options being available being the PS4's volume control. It'd be very interesting if I could get it to do DH off the USB feed, though it's doubtful.

This would've been useful on the PS3 (maybe it did work, but no one tested it?)






I basically just volunteered, didn't I? tongue.gif

Hmmm, I thought I read somewhere that PS3 USB ports couldn't transfer audio... strange.

Anyway, nice find with the PS4 :]

Do try to experiment with it.

Nah, doesn't seem to be any way to make the U3 convert to Dolby, though I'm sure USB audio is probably limited to stereo.

edit: So the U3 registers as usb mic adapter, so that's good to know.

Any chance you've listen to Dark Side of the Moon on the MA900s? It is one of my listening pleasures, so I'm curious to know how it would sound.

Does nobody else find it slightly disturbing to keep seeing Reggie's face on the top right corner of the screen every time they come to this thread?

 

It's like he is haunting me now LOL

Nah. For a real-world demo about how much different headphones leak sound, watch my YouTube video. I posted it about 3 pages back, and it's also linked on the last page of my Journal thread in my signature.

Mic has never picked up my game audio with any of my headphones, even the KSC 75's.

Yes, you did. Keep testing!
I missed your stream today. Can't watch it inside the Twitch.TV mobile app :/

Meh, it was just more testing. I don't plan to stream anything but online play. I'm still on the KZ campaign though I think I'm pretty much done.
