Also...any one wanna trade some cans :D I'd love to hear the Creative Aural Live [I think it's called that] :D

 

More importantly I might be selling my zune! Gonna replce it with a 32gb SD card for the hifiman hm 601 I have. the hifiman has better bass... so might as well sell le zune! 

 

Haha, now now, what were you going to say? I had to get this done though, repaired that is. I just thought I'd go through him as opposed to the last company in Florida I used (that did the 12v fan mod and something similar with much less warranty). What a wonderful decision it was. Yup, all for it. Gotta have at least one console. The rest I can emulate mostly. Haha, thank you sir :) Yeah, you should see what PC's I've wanted before :P I am making a Windows98 build with a Aureal Vortex2 card :P It's called legacy for a reason. Anywho, I'm more of a efficiency guy than someone who's all about cosmetics, so, this worked out wonderful for me as I could care less for flashing lights and what not (just extra expense to me that does nothing performance wise). I told you about the rarity man!

anyone else using the PULSE Headsets? been trying to find reviews on Head-Fi for them but it's quite limited.

still thinking of how to connect a Mixamp to them though... (or with them... the Mixamp isn't necessary?)

i'm getting quite confused by it.

if i were to connect it via 3.5mm (and not the USB dongle) does the Virtual Surround still work and 

 

it's being shipped over so I can't test it out.

was thinking if I should get a Mixamp (over a Fiio) and match it with the Monoprice (any word on this?) or something else.

 

used to have an AD700.. but sold it (never knew about the Mixamp then)

The surround only works with a Digital input, Tos-Link in the case of the Mixamp. The virtual surround is acheived by a Dolby processor. Analog in = Analog out, no Dolby.

ended up goin over to best buy and getting this adapter. Works fine, but I am thinking I may be loosing some sound quality since I have to use the 1/4 inch adapter? What do you guys think?

and this:

does have 7.1. I assume it has a box like the mixamp with it. That link is slim on details but it's common. Turtle Beach has DSS. Triton has theirs, Razer has one, etc.

Mixamp comes with an adapter like that and it's fine. I have already gone through one and had to get another. Fewest wires and connectors is always best. But what are you gonna do?

The Pulse either works as a wireless 7.1 virtual surround headset with the PS3 only with the included usb dongle or a regular stereo headset when using it with a wired connection. It uses Sony's own virtual surround headphone tech which should be exactly the same as the ones they use in their receivers.

thanks for clearing this up!

hmm. would it be better i put aside the USB Dongle and get a Mixamp to go with it? 

 

anyone can confirm the mic works on wired connection too?

 

EDIT: guess this answers it

Utilizing the included stereo audio cable this headset is compatible with many cell phones that have a stereo audio jack. Depending on your cell phone, you may need to turn the power off on the headset (if it is on) in order to utilize the headset.
Note: based on your cell phone design, your device may utilize the headset mic or continue to use the cell phone’s mic for voice communication. For further details on hardware compatibility, please visit

new mixamp pro, which is what I have doesnt come with an adapter like that. Hense why I had to go out and buy one... haha

 

I may just order one online, one that has two female 3.5mm inputs, so I can get rid of the 1/4 adapter.

That isn't a full mixamp. That is an extra receiver for the wireless mixamp.

So this is my mixamp hooked up to my mstage.

 

Here's how I have it setup:

Xbox/PS3/PC -> HDMI cables -> HDMI Splitter -> Harman Kardon AVR-247 -> Optical passthru -> Mixamp -> Startech HeadSET splitter -> 3.5mm stereo to 2x RCA -> mstage -> headphones

 

When I don't need chat when I'm playing consoles, I just plug my headphones directly into the receiver. When I'm playing PC games or just want to listen to music I have an Asus U1 hooked up to the mstage to supply it with DH. Then I have some Monitor Audio speakers and a carver sub set up for when volume is of no concern.
