So the Best gaming headphone in the $0 - $300 price range is the Philip X1 I guess?

The X1s are amazing!

It's a great choice. Probably the safest, as long as you like some emphasized bass. The bass can be from sweet, to a bit overpowering depending on the frequency.

They are my hands down favorite from all I have tried in their price range.

I personally think a safer bet would be the new flat headband K702 and order some memory foam pads from AKG. It all depends, however, on what your sound preference is.

 

For under $300 the X1 and K702/Q701 with memory pads are my top two recommendations for gaming...

I need to find an external dac that does virtual 5.1 or 7.1

Kind of like how astro has the mix amp and turtle beach has the dss, but if I were to buy one of those I would have to double amp it because I play games with my arrow 4g

I'm gonna hook the sound processor up to my ps3 via optical cable and then run my arrow 4g from that to my ue 6000, (it'll be awesome for battlefield 3)

There are none, that anyone knows of. You're stuck with something like the Mixamp. You could score an older marantz receiver which is a good source and powerful-ish internal amp also with Dolby headphone.

Hmm, not sure how I feel about the HP-800. It's like dark. DARK. Like even darker than 650/Mad Dogs dark. The bass, while strong isn't overwhelming, but the mids are distant, and treble is pretty soft...

Gonna have to wait for my E12 to come in... running unamped right now, though these are stupid easy to drive. 30mw max input power. That's like NOTHING.

What do you think about double amping the mix amp? No need probably

The mixamp isn't really much of an amp at all. The main use for it is Dolby. If you're getting a high end headphone, you usually need a secondary amp to use it at its full potential.

Damn I can't believe it, either I'm a genius or sol

That's what I've been saying to do for ages. Even on the first post of the guide...

I'm really thinking people don't read it.

I don't know why someone doesn't just make a small, portable Dolby Headphone effects box that doesn't interfere with the signal elsewhere. I really dislike the Mixamp's inline amp.

post #15539 of 26682
My ue 6000 is 50 ohms and the cable has an inline mic

If I plugged it into the headphone jack of the mixamp would I have microphone support?

also does the mixamp have enough juice to power 50 ohms?

Thank you

Ohm level is not a number to go by how hard a headphone is to drive. You have a 250ohm beyerdynamic that is nowhere near as hard to drive as the 38ohm HE-4 (which demands a specialized or super powerful amp to get going), or AKg K70x line with is around 60ohm and need a good chunk of power to get going as well. That being said, I'm sure the UE6000 is designed with ipods and iphones in mind, meaning it will be highly sensitive/easy to drive.

The Mixamp should be fine for chat. If not, you can buy an adapter that splits audio and chat, then use the y adapter that comes with the Mixamp to join them back into one port. I'm positive you won't need to though.
