Everyone here double amps the Mixamp. Its the only way to power some harder to drive cans properly.

It doesn't nessasarily needs to be an i-tech bluetooth, anything as long as it is bluetooth 2.0 compatible then it will work with the PS3.

If you want, you can even get the official PlayStation bluetooth mic and just hang it around your neck or something.

Haha, no you shouldn't because there is a button on the earbud that acts as the on/off switch.

Why is the Creative Aurvana Live so damn good? Gah, if ONLY it had velour pads. frown.gif

Borrowing it again to compare to the HP-800... and it just blows me away.

I have some shure srh840 headphones and I bought the velour pads for it (the pads from the srh940) and honestly it ruined the sound. It took away almost all the bass and muddied up the sound all together. I think they don't seal as well, I really just think pleather is the way to go, and they're just as comfortable to me at least

Only thing I don't like about the CALs is that my ears touch the drivers, especially my antihelix as it protudes out more than my helix. So the CALs became completely unusable after 40+ minutes of my ears pressing against the drivers.

I know the HM5 pads fit on the CALs, I also know there is now an angled pad for the HM5. http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_66627_NVX-XRE100A.html?creative=21997576328&device=m&network=s&matchtype=p&gclid=CIL02uT89bgCFed_Qgod5F8A0Q they might help with your driver issue. I don't know if they fit. Just saying they might.

I do double amp the DSS. It helps a lot with harder to drive HPs and makes those little ohm ones dead silent, no hiss, no anything. It just works.

MLE, I wish you'd try the JVC S500...or even its little brother, the S400. I would love to read your opinion on them.

I double amp the DSS as well without issue

FiiO has a new product coming out...

 

http://www.fiio.com.cn/products/index.aspx?ID=100000048596648&MenuID=105026003

 

It has optical in and out... so I wonder how this can be used for our gaming rigs. Anyone care to chime in?

I just bought the Phillips Fidelio X1 and after reading everything I can't seem to make up my mind on what to get for the dolby 7.1 amp. If I got the DSS would that alone be a good enough amp for the X1?

Also I don't want the hiss the mixamp pro 2013 gives you so searching for the 2011 version and I think I found it on ebay for $96. is that a rip?

 

Also I am not totally sure its the 7.1 mixamp cause the nobs in volume control look different in the picture. you can find it on ebay if you search for the following.

"NEW MixAmp Pro Only For Astro A40 Gaming"

 

anyways what do you guys think I am better off with? I am not super concerned about using a mic right now.

 

Thanks

I don't go direct out of the DSS, but I've tried it and it's fine for the X1.  Considering you can get the DSS v1 for $25 on ebay, it's not much of a risk.

post #15747 of 23151
I was looking into the beyerdynamic custom one pro headphones. Any idea how those stack up? I'd be using the astro mixamp with them for my consoles, but not so much for the PC. I also want then for music so that was a big point for me.

On the mic side I'm looking at the beyerdynamic mic for the COP's but it's $80 frown.gif
I don't know if v-moda's boompro mic would work with it but that one is only $30.

What do you guys think?

I own the modmic actually and while I like it, I'm not a huge fan of the secondary extra long cable hanging off the side of the headphones, and I don't really want to stick something to the side of them (although with the removable plates that wouldn't be the biggest issue)

I think it's stupid to pay $96 (and this is excluding shipping?) for a mixamp, especially when it's primary use is only going to be its DSP; Dolby Headphones.

 

I'd go with the DSS if I were you.
