Mpawluk91,
Your name is a little hard to remember...
The Mixamp from 2011 will do that for you, if it comes with or you buy a TRRS Y-split cable to separate the mic input and sound output into two plugs, and your console isn't a PS3 that requires USB chat input (the very first Mixamp didn't support this, Mad just posted a pic a page or two back).

I personally don't bother, the only game I can't adjust down the game volume where I really think it needs it, is Halo 4. So, I just have a lapel mic plugged directly into the controller.

Also the pre-2013 wired Mixamps have considerably less hiss than the DSS.

These impulses will be the end of me.
This.

 

If its headphones, I say the Momentum on ear. If it's gear... I have no clue... tongue_smile.gif

Hahaha. I got to hear the Momentum, and while I liked their sound sig, I wasn't a fan of the pads. Both because they aren't velour, and because despite what people say, those are only over ear for a fraction of the world's population. They sit completely on ear for me.

There would be a bigger chance for me to get the Momentum on ear instead because I heard it's v-shaped and more bassy (which I prefer at least for portable music use), and because the pads aren't leather/pleather. Since both Momentums sit on ear, my OCD tendencies would lead me to rather get one designed to be on ear in the first place.

That being said...

If the mixamp had a line out for external amp that would be awesome

The hiss isn't a problem for me with the DSS.

Didn't say it was a problem, just that the wired pre-2013 Mixamps have considerably less of it. For those who want the cleanest signal, the Mixamp is a better choice.

Uhm... since we're on topic for voice chat on the PS3, I just want to let you guys know that there is a work around for it if you are using the original Mixamp or the TB DSS.

 

Get a bluetooth mic. Any will be fine, but a clip-on like this will be ideal.

 

Then go to Settings > Acessory Settings > Audio Device Settings

Your input device should be your bluetooth mic, BUT set your output device to System Default Device (this will go to your DSS, thus to your headphone).

 

Also, set Stereo Heaset Audio Extension to > On so all audio goes to your headphones. If this is set to off, only the chat audio will go to your headphones while in-game audio will go to your speakers.

 

After that, well you're done.

You basically get a wireless mic where you don't have to dangle 2 wires off your desk resulting in even messier cables around the place.

Most bluetooth mics now a days have a control where you can set the incoming volume from your friends, so another problem fixed for needing any voice chat volume control.

Otherwise, most games with MP has volume controls for chat volume as well.

 

I'm personally doing this and has been doing it for a very long time. It's a good work around for those who cannot get a Mixamp pre-2013 (because it is increasingly hard to get and it's being sold for a stupidly high price right now).

 

Hope this helps. :)

Brilliant. Now, to find the european equivalent of that thing...

I would just cut the earbud off of it and clip it on my shirt

So has anyone here double amped the mix amp? I would just plug my arrow 4g or my c&c bh into the headphone jack and run my cans off the amp,

But the real question is do I need the extra boost? No doubt the external amp will add quality and real eq switches but I don't know how clean the mix amp's headphone out is.

I've never heard a mixamp or a dss2, the only true 5.1 headset I ever owned was the tritton pro + and it was crap, it had no freakin bass man I was pissed
