Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 10/15/2014: Beyerdynamic T51i Added) - Page 1626

I know, but TAC seems a sure upgrade over Mixamp. Promise no hiss, and have more surround presets. Let's see what is coming.

Oh, I am surely getting TAC. But Q701>>>> any wireless/wired Turtle Beach headset. 90% of commercially acclaimed headsets are crap.

After playing around with the adapter design, I've come around to the final design. The entire body of the adapter will be made of metal with glue shrink holding it together. I've wired all the internal with solid core copper. This also insures the highest quality signal will be sent, though I have considered wiring the internals with solid core Silver. The new design is more snug with the AKG as well. The 1/8" jack I used has a smaller entry, so the Boom Pro wont turn nearly as much as the prototype I made.

 

I'm opening up a testing program for these very shortly. Participants will be put on a list and there will be one unit passed around among the members. Final details will be disclosed later. 

 

Stillhart, I have your adapter in hand, let me know when you want it. Same goes for you MLE.

 

On the left is the prototype, on the right is the final design.

 

Hi Zombie,

 

Following your progress on these adapters with great interest (just bought the 701s for gaming). Looking forward to the next update!

So the AKG Q701's aren't compatible with the V-moda boom mic?

when it the TAC coming out? I sure hope to see some comparison's to the Mixamp. I'm fine with my mixamp, tried TB mixers before, but would always like to see something beat out the mixamp at some point.

Nope. The K/Q7xx line use Mini XLR connectors for the headphones. Zombie_X is currently working on getting the XLR to 3.5mm adapters tested and ready to sell. Those will work with the Boom Pro and any other 3.5mm cord.

Hey guys,

Any solid recommendations for closed back, over the ear headphones? I'm looking into some good headphones for portable gaming and music use. I'm not sure as to which closed headphones will have a good enough soundstage while still being great for music. I'm looking into foldable headphones for portability.

So far, the V-Moda M100, PSB M4U 1 or 2 and Mad Dogs seem pretty decent.

ETA?

Sorry, no clue. You may have to ask Zombie_X directly. You can check back periodically on the testing thread as hopefully it will be updated as the testing gets done. Here's the link: http://www.head-fi.org/t/717192/custom-akg-v-moda-boom-pro-adapter-testers-wanted

For all the talk this TAC thing gets, an HDMI input/video passthrough would be nice.

 

Also, we're making an awful lot of assumptions about its performance and DTS Headphone:X's performance in particular. While I'd like to test it out myself, I can't rule out the possibility that it might actually end up being worse.

It's AC3 -> DTS: Headphone X?

 

No DTS?

There are a couple iOS apps with Hans Zimmer soundtracks in pre-baked DTS Headphone X (and of course Zimmer saying "Left-front speaker..."), not interactive like a game but I thought it sounded good. Well, I say not interactive, but you can switch on/off DTS headphone X mode live while the batman or superman music is playing. Historically, DTS encoding is less compressed than Dolby too, though like anything in this hobby there are people who prefer one over the other... There was an episode of Big Bang Theory where a pretty new girl moves in upstairs and has Leonard set up a home theater for her; Leonard set it to use DTS "...because it has more bass" and Sheldon says "I hate you."

Hey guys, how would the Soundmagic HP100 be for gaming?

post #24389 of 27847
Two people in this thread use it and rave about it often.
post #24390 of 27847

As far as I know PS4 uses AMD audio software which is supposedly awesome and badass etc. So, a question has to be asked, is there a way for PS4 to output virtual surround through optical as two channel pcm stream so we can have both positional accuracy and audiophile level sound quality?
