He wrote some nice comparisons between it and the HD800 at one point....
If you want surround from your Xbox One, you're limited to the Astro Mixamp, Sound Blaster Recon3D, Turtle Beach DSS, etc. There is a list of them in the guide. The DSS will be your cheapest option.
They don't make the DSS anymore so you need to get it off ebay. You can still get the DSS2 new, I think. I dunno, I'm not going to give you a link. Use Google, you lazy ass. :P
I've never used the DSS or DSS2, so I can't say 100%. You definitely need to connect it with the optical (for sound) and USB (for power), then set the Xbox to output Dolby. For chatting, you'll still need the adapter to plug it into your controller... that's the part that I can't help with on the DSS.
Open? Philips Fidelio X1. With the X2 out now, you should be able to find them under $200.
If you find any place where they get below 200 can you please let me know.
These are perfect.
Since it's actually you, not I, who is shopping for them, it's much more likely that you'll find them than I will.
Amazon has used ones for around that price. If you want new...you might find it this black friday or cyber monday.
Just because you know there's one in the grass does not mean it will simply come out and engage you.
