You could daisy chain an external headphone amplifier to the TBS DSS's headphone output, but for headphones like the HD668B, I can't see it being worth it.

You can't hook an add-on DAC to the TBS DSS

I would assume the PS4 uses it's USB connection as a mic input.

So I'm assuming you need a cable with a USB connection at one end, with a DAC chip built into the cable and a 3.5mm jack at the other end?

To connect the DSS's line-output (mic out) to the USB connection on the PS4.

Unless the PS4 has a 3.5mm or RCA line-input? (for your mic).

Does anyone know how much different the dt770-80 sounds compared to the 250 omhs? I am going to demo the 250 version and the ultrasone pro 900 with a Fiio e12. They don't have the 80 in stock so the 250 is my only option.

Also, is the Fiio e12 better than the e17? I will also be pairing with a mix amp when gaming.

Your mic will have to go into your ps4 controller somehow!

As for the KRK closed cans, I'm not sure I'm willing to sacrifice that much positional accuracy. But I'll look into them, thanks!

It's not a "complete waste" if you're not going to amp it.  It's just that you're not going to hear them at their best with no amp.  You'd be better off buying a slightly "worse" headphone that doesn't need amping.

 

Heres how my math brain thinks of it:  

Q701 with no amp = 8/10

Heaphone X with no amp = 9/10

Q701 with amp = 10/10

 

You're not getting a BAD headphone when using the Q701 with no amp.  You could get one that's a little better with no amp and come out ahead.  OR you could get the Q701 and then get an amp later when you can afford it and you'll end up with a better setup overall.  Options are nice.

 

The important thing is to understand that, if you've never heard any of these audiophile headphones for gaming before, an 8/10 will still blow your ******* mind.  You should only be sweating the finer distinctions if you already have some experience to guide your decision.

Random Destiny thought:  I've never played a Halo game before, but I've read about how great the controls are and how all other games try to emulate it as the benchmark.  I can say that the controls for Destiny feel amazing.  If this is what people are talking about, I'm a believer.  I suck at FPS games, yet here I am using a Scout Rifle and just getting headshot after headshot.  Thumbs up!

If you're getting "headshot after headshot" and you never player Halo, the game must suck and not be anything like Halo 1,2 or 3.

Hey everyone, this is my first post on these forums after doing alot of research around the internet.

 

I tried my best to try to learn what i needed to go it myself but im just absolutely overloaded with options and information to the point where i just cant process it all myself.

 

So this is my first venture into audiophile headphones, my G35 snapped off the earphone when i accidently dropped it off my bed and i decided it was time to go another venture in technology into the audiophile area.

 

Firstly i mainly intend on the headset being used for gaming, followed closely by music/movies. Ill be using it on a desktop computer, the mobo is a sabertooth 990fx if that information is needed at all. If you need any more info just ask.


So basically after pouring over the OP and alot of other reviews around the net ive gone ahead and ordered a AKG K612 Pro, i havent ordered an amp or a dac for it nor a sound card. I am leaning towards getting a mod mic for it as i do need the mic for gaming. 

 

So my questions are;

 

1) Is there a best option for being on a budget? (amp/soundcard??/mic)

 

2) From my understanding the K612 is on the harder side of headphones to drive, does this basically mean to get good sound quality from it i need to invest in an amp?

 

 

Tldr;

 

I need help understanding the relation between dac's/soundcards/dedicated amp's, im on a budget and would like the cheapeast possible median to get good sound quality/experience from a AKG K612.

 

Its to my understanding that all onboard soundcards are just balls and just picking up a starter DAC would help tremendously, at the moment im just looking for small purchases that give big increases in quality if such things exist, if i can afford the more expensive-for-minor-upgrades later i can look into that then.

I found a store to buy the headphones. Now the only doubt is what is what headphone will be the best for competitive (fps games).
Headphones available:

AD700X

HD598

HD558

 

I can take this three for almost the same price, the 598 is a little more expensive.
Anyway, i just want to know what is the best one to fps games.

Thanks!

My Shure 1540 pads came in today!

I've never replaced pads on headphones before, so that took a brief learning curve (especially since the 1540 pads don't fit as snug in the groove as the original HP100 pads), but overall I think they make a big improvement, at least in comfort!  My ears don't stick out much but I did feel that they were a bit close to the fabric covering the drivers at times.  The 1540 pads are definitely deeper than stock pads, so I no longer have this problem.  I've never worn velour pads before, so I can't compare to that, but I do feel these are slightly more "breathable" than the stock pleather while still giving a nice seal around my ears.

 

I haven't listened to enough music yet to make a judgment on sound, but I DO feel that they increase the "bass feel" noticeably, which isn't unwanted on my part.  When testing with some tracks like Massive Attack - Angel, the bass is definitely more present, while still being more distinct than my old Sony Pulse Elites (which apparently have "bloated bass"?).  However, I also noticed that the snare drums and hi-hat are not as pronounced as they were with stock pads.  I only notice this now because this was a huge difference from my old Sony Pulse Elites, but now the difference isn't as distinct.

 

I was worried that the pads made my music more muffled, so I put on some classical and electric strings (along with some Daft Punk).  I'm glad to say that strings and vocals sound as clear as before, at least to my ears.  

 

I'll definitely be keeping these pads on, and I appreciate the recommendation, Change!  Thanks everyone!
