Considering I feel the CAL stacks up to the M50 sound quality-wise, I'd say it'd be a step up, though I have not heard the M30s. The CAL is also more open sounding than the M50 and much better suited for gaming.

Not sure on your taste in music, as the CAL is warm, slightly reserved, and not exactly quick for those genres of music.


In other news, I'm about 40% done with the Annie review. Got to finish it later, as I have things to do.

Okay I figured out my problem so I have a better question. I dont have a digital optical cable for my dss so I use the aux in using a 3.5mm cable. Due to this, the dolby digital doesnt turn on, only the plix light. Does this affect my sound or no. If so should I buy a digital optic cable or will it sound the same.

Not sure if I have a faulty device, but I've tried using a few mics with my Astro Mixamp and Sennheiser HD595. I purchased a Y adapter and the headphones work fine but the mic doesn't. Am I doing something wrong?

Yes. You absolutely need optical or you're not getting Dolby Headphone.

What system? System settings? Xbox controller cable from the Mixamp to the 360 controller? Default communication device on the PC set to the Mixamp? Etc.

Use the first usb slot to attach the Mixamp. Go to accessory settings and make sure the device is the Mixamp.

Yeah, did that, but for some reason it only doesn't detect the mic. Audio comes in through the headphones but nothing goes out thru the mic

Hmm, I get that same problem. Try the other usb slot. Make sure the voice/game knob on the Mixamp is halfway. You'll get it eventually. Its a pain at times.

What does the default device say?
