I haven't tried, but I assume it works the same as any other audio inputs in Windows.  Click the little speaker in the lower left (system tray), then click "Mixer",  It'll bring up all your volumes and you just adjust as needed.  If that doesn't work, right click the speaker and go to "recording devices" insead of "playback devices".  The Z software probably has sliders for this too.

 

 

 

Appreciate it Still,

 

I looked at the Omni and it looks like the ticket for control, with that said I think I'll still go the Z route just for the amping power. If I'm not mistaken the Omni is a little weaker. It could be a addition down the road to make controlling everything easier.

I don't recall the specs off the top of my head, but I do recall the difference was like 105 (of something) to 107 (of something), which I don't consider material.  I ended up with the Omni over the Z simply because I got it cheaper at the time.  I'm sure you'll be happy with either.

Gaming, music, comfort, soundstage, bass, vocals, clarity, etc. Philips knocked it out of the ballpark. It will be my #1 recommendation for those that want a headphone that does everything at least good or better. I'm not saying it's the best at any one thing. I'm saying that the whole package makes it a must have if you need that one headphone that can handle anything.

What's the ETA on the Fidelio X2 review? As of now what number rating would you put for Competitive? The X1 received an 8. Does the X2 surpass it?

Probably 8.25 because it has slightly less bass and more clarity....at least from what I have read. There might be more to it but i dont think it will ever get a 9 or 9.5, if thats what you want to hear.

Omni doesn't have an optical input for the game console:

This. Also, while the X2 is clearer, it's soundstage isn't as wide as wide as the X1s. Think DT880 vs 990 though the X2 has better depth than the 880 for sure. It still has a very good soundstage, just saying the X1 reaches out farther, IIRC. I don't feel comfortable confirming this as I don't have the X1. I don't remember it's sonic characteristics quite well though. There are some headphones I can easily remember and pick out in a blind test. The X1 is one of those.

Looks like I missed out on that X7 sale while I was on vacation. I only had service for a few hours in Puerto Rico and Grand Turk. Boo on that. Oh well. I should be able to game for a bit this week (end of the week, really) on the Geek Pulse. That promises to be interesting.
