So you guys don't think I'm upselling or whatever on the Mixamp, I bought mine for $150, WITHOUT THE BATTERY PACK OR CABLE. I paid around $200 just to have my Mixamp 5.8 setup.

I got my Mixamp 5.8 in a bundle with A30's, $240 at the Microsoft Store but they had it at a one-time 50% off sale around May... At the same time they were selling a bundle with white A30's, still at full price.

In case anyone's curious about the A30, I thought it was decently comfortable from the velour Earpads, it arrived with the left driver unattached to the earcup so it clicked around if I shook my head and was all messed up compared to the right driver. I contacted Astro Support and they exchanged the A30 for me, but the replacement sounded just like the right driver had on the old set, honestly the Koss KSC75 sounded more detailed and enjoyable, however my buddies on the Xbox 360 said the mic was recording good sound.

There's a cheap GoPro usb-to-3.5mm mic cable on Amazon that has me wondering if it could replicate the USB Chat feature.

I'm wondering about the X7 myself since it seems to be marketed directly at me. I still have my mstage and also using an SMSL SA-98e to power my bookshelf speakers for PC use. An X7 would cut down my cable clutter that I have now by A LOT since I'd be deleting the amp, head amp, and odac/U1. 

 

The only difference between the X7 and X7 LE is the paint job and upgraded power brick right? I see that creative is selling the upgraded power brick for $130 on amazon and I bet you can use the same spec'd ones on ebay that only cost around $40 as an alternative.

Output impedance is lower as well, albeit "only" at 1Ohm. A safer choice for 16 Ohm headphones though. 

Now the only question is output power per impedance and when the damn thing will be available in Deutschland.

That defeats the prupose of me selling the whole thing. :/

Ebay sells batt packs for $15.

If anyone is interested in a badass open/bassy/ultra comfy headphone, I'll be selling my Ultrasone 15G for like chump change ($50 total), since I have not touched it in an eternity, and it's an absolute waste for it not to be used.

Definitely a very good, immersive gaming can. I should probably put up my E17 as well for a similar price.

Change, I use this battery. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002MQ1NP6/ The photo is misleading, I received the actual Astro 1800mAh battery, not some third party one like what's shown. Works like a champ for me and under $16 shipped (prime).
