Would I be able to chat on the ps4 and would the sound quality of the dolby headphone from the px5 base station be as good as the astro mixamp?

I am using the PX5 station and the X1 worked fine with it... Though it starts to distort in the bass at roughly 80% volume and up. A second amplifier did improve the sound a bit but not drastically... It does not have a mic output though, so...

The DH processing is the same as the Mixamps though.

Firstly thanks for your reply. So there would be no way to have chat using a boom pro mic and the px5 station? Maybe via the controller?

Either using the controller or use one output for both the headphone and the microphone but that way you won't be able to regulate microphone volume levels...
Via controller it should be possible I believe?

I think i might just have to get the mixamp, would the mixamp also be good enough use with the pc for movies and music? Im really not looking forward to the bucketload of wires across my floor but the wireless 5.8 mixamp is impossible to order her in The Netherlands nobody has it in stock.

They don't make the Mixamp 5.8 anymore so it's impossible to order anywhere.  Ebay is your best bet -- I snagged mine for $40!

 

Personally, I think the Mixamp sounds pretty bad so I wouldn't use it on a PC where you have a lot more options.  Get a good cheap sound card for the PC.  There's a cheap Asus Xonar that people on here like, but I don't recall the name.

Would I need an amp for those? Or is my sound card adequate for the task?

Should be fine. Just ask our good friend, Stillhart, from a couple posts up...

Correct, no amp needed for these.  

 

I haven't actually tried gaming with these yet, BTW.  I use them for music at work (for which they're fantastic).

It's built kinda like the original Beats headphones, but IIRC it actually does Dolby Headphone for PS3/4 audio. And, it has a cable if you want to use it with a mobile device without Bluetooth. It's not going to be a world-beating headphone, but if you want surround, wireless, inexpensive......

Disclaimer - I haven't actually heard the pairing.  But Q701 needs amping so any amp will help.

Thanks guys :)

 

At my local retailers here actually they also have good customer service and return policy (fortunately the stores are only about 10-20 mins from my house) sooo if have a problem with the products i can bring back to them straight away.. I think i will get the FiiO Eo9K. Many thanks to everyone :)

Eh, no~

 

The Gold uses Sony's own proprietary HRTF, sounds nothing like DH, not even close. If I have to compare, it's more remotely close to Razer surround with a slightly wider soundstage and just as poor rear cues.

Knowing that Razer Surround is godawful I think I'm going to pass on these.

Is there a headphone out there with a large soundstage, good imaging while still having a lot of bass impact and clarity? 

 

I bought the X1, and they had all of this, but the fit is really awkward on my head, and that's why the imaging gets weird for me so I had to return them.
