Start laughing then, because it's true.

 

The Gold (and also the Pulse Elite) headset wakes up entirely just being connected to an amp. Be it a cheapo TB DSS or a Mixamp, doesn't matter. Give it a little bit of power and it sounds so much better than being wireless.

 

My understanding is that because the battery needs to be used when in wireless mode, the drivers aren't actually being fed enough current for them to actually work. This is to of course improve battery life and Sony can't afford to put in bigger batteries as they want to keep their headsets light.

 

So yes, it sounds significantly better when wired. It's not even a competition. Otherwise in wireless mode, every damn thing just sounds so veiled even at max volume.

Sony's VSS is nothing to shout about. If you want to know how it sounds like, take Dolby Pro Logic 2 and cut out 20% of the reverb. That's Sony's VSS.

What do they sound like when wired? What's the closest match (aside from other sony headphones, I guess)

The LME49720 op-amps are low cost, like $4 each.
Don't do that unless you like incredibly jacked-up bass and treble with hollow, distant, recessed mids.

I made a similar change and it sounded horrible. Immediately put the JRCs back in and everything sounded much better.

I need some help, I currently have akg 545 and the acu from turtle beach. I recently picked up a blue yeti and was wondering how would I connect everything to my Xbox one?

Are there any good op-amps replacements for the stock op-amps on the Ti-HD?

There may be some good combinations out there, but I haven't bothered experimenting because I like how the Titanium HD sounds in its stock configuration already. I'd likely find myself disappointed again and again and again.

Hey guys can someone please tell me if there anyway to send gameplay sound out of the ps4 via optical and do chat thru the ps4 controller? If so what cable do I need?

I was just reading the ps4 3.5mm x2 thread and I couldn't find d a definite answer.

Thanks

Have you guys read up on this new Cayin C5 portable amp? It supposedly has similar juice to the E12, maybe a little more? I'm also reading that the sound quality compares to that of the iCAN, which was noticeably better than the E12 to me.

Very interesting...

I am definitely happy with the OPA2111AM swap out of the 2114's...essentially followed this guide HERE. They were expensive but love them.

What did you like so much about the change?

I can't speak for OPA2111AMs, but putting LM4562/LME49xx0 variants in place of the stock JRC 2114Ds is a total no-go for me, never again. Everything sounded kinda raspy and shrill on top of the extreme V-shaped response.

It's simple he'll assign the HD800 a perfect score all across the board

I want to buy a pair so bad but I'm too worried I'll get them and not like them or decide it's too incremental of an improvement for the cost. I live in a big city with no high end headphone boutiques. First world problems :P

I'd buy them in a heartbeat if I had a money for them and an amp powerful enough to drive them to their full potential
