There is only one pair of headphones that support it and they're 300$ wireless gaming headphones (Turtle Beach Elite 800). Pretty sure nobody has that kind of cash to burn on a product that is probably going to be mediocre anyway.

Cheapest Turtle Beach Ear Force Z60 with DTS Headphone:X 7.1 for $120.

But these are "fake" 7.1 dts headphone x, since the true dts x must be encode with 11.1 dts hp x audio stream.
And another one for $130.

Do you think an amp is necessary for these to sound good?

I didn't plan on buying an amp because I don't want to spend to much?

Sorry if i sound stupid  I'm a Noob when it comes to this stuff.

Read the review on the first page.

I stopped believing most people even check the first page. Instead, they immediately jump to asking questions.

Then people wonder why I generally don't answer questions or private messages.

Here is THAT QUESTION ANSWERED RIGHT ON THE K612 REVIEW

Quote:
Amping:

Essential

The K612 Pro is a higher impedance than it's 7xx siblings, and therefore demands more power to hit a moderate volume in comparison. For gaming, you can forget about using the K612 Pro off the Mixamp alone if you attempt to use a mic. Even with the Mixamp putting all it's power on game audio, the K612 pro hits moderate, not high volume levels.

Yes, he made a prototype, then mailed it to some rando who had 10 posts and stole it.  Then he didn't make anymore.  That was months ago.

 

I think it's fair to say that we can stop telling people that there's an adapter.  It's too bad, too.  Plenty of people would pay way too much for one.  Maybe I'll email Monoprice and see if they can make one...

I assume the X2 will be okay when using a mic and no amp. I'll know in a few days.


Oh yeah, Not sure if he makes those adapters upon request..? I use the recon3d as well but ill be using a sound blaster z on my pc. Either way, Im probably going to get a Vali later on this year or early next year. Fiio E11 will do for now..
