A shame, the PX100-II is FREAKING PHENOMENAL in sound quality for the price.


That's good to hear. I didn't either, they pressed against my earstoo hard into the driver units causing physical pain. They resist having their clamp reduced after having them for like a year and many stretching attemps they still haven't really reduced in clamp, my head is too big for them, I ended up just giving them to my mom.

 

The PX-100 ii was one of the few Senns I actually liked and I do miss it some but I never used it much because of comfort.

It specifically says "Dolby Headphone Device" under the 2013's picture in the front of the guide.

Yeah, but I've seen the DSS2 referred to as a Dolby headphone device (OK not here), that's why I wanted to make absolutely sure.

Sigh.

Gotta love those questions, lol.

In fairness, even the Astro website doesn't explicitly say "Dolby Headphone". It says "Dolby Digital" 5.1 or 7.1, so I don't understand why it's such a stupid question.

Good thing this thread sometimes drifts towards those ultralight headphones. I want to buy a pair for work during those idle minutes and my first thought was the Koss Porta Pro. That Ultrasone isn't availabe directly from Amazon unfortunately but I don't need the mic. I could have gotten a CAL but I prefer open so I can hear people around me.

If you already have the Omni why don't you see how that sounds with the pc360 before you get the mix amp , you never know they could sound good together!

Because I literally answered this right on the Mixamp 2013's entry, and you don't even have to click on the spoiler. People ask questions that are literally answered on the first page. The the DSS entry specifically states that the DSS2 does not have Dolby Headphone.

I mean... it's like people skip the first page and ask questions.

I've got consoles too, so I want the Mixamp for those. I'm not fixated on Dolby Headphone, I just wanted to know exactly what I'm buying. If it sounds good I couldn't care less what technology it is.

Well, if you're not fixated on Dolby Headphone, the Creative Recon 3D USB is a very versatile gaming device, which works well for both consoles and PC. It's cheaper, and has considerably less hiss than the Mixamp Pro.

And as I stated, I've seen people incorrectly refer to the DSS2 as a Dolby headphone device in the sense that it decodes Dolby signals for use with headphones, but it doesn't use "Dolby Headphone" as in Dolby's own digital signal processing technology/algorithm.

 

I didn't read the DSS description as I wasn't looking to buy one and already know that the DSS2 doesn't support "Dolby Headphone". That is why I sought confirmation about the Mixamp.

 

In regards to an additional amp, I'll hold up my hand and say "my bad". I've been referring to the guide for info on headphones, headsets and virtual surround devices. I didn't look at the amp section, but being not too knowledgeable about matching impedances and power outputs of amps, I thought I'd ask for a suggestion, this being a forum after all.

Thanks for that suggestion. While I am not fixated specifically on Dolby Headphone, I would like to try something different. I already own the SB Omni which shares the same technology. I see buying the Mixamp as a chance to broaden my experience.

 

And I'm sorry for arguing with you. I felt you were being short with me and as much as I respect your opinion and the work you've done, I don't back down if I feel I'm not in the wrong. Hope you understand :)

He did the same thing to me when I was in here asking questions at first.  Fortunately, I stuck around despite him and have met some cool people and learned a lot.  Don't let grumpy MLE get to you.  Ask your questions and learn so you can help the next group of noobs.

The last thing I want to do is pick a fight. Maybe I should have better communicated why I was unsure at the beginning. Hopefully he accepts my apology.

MLE's a good guy, don't let the frustrated comments bother you. But I agree with him that a lot of the questions people ask can easily be found in the guide information on the first page. Many of us "regulars" end up answering the same questions multiple times. And if it's not on the first post, searching the thread could potentially reveal more information. That said, I can't count the number of dumb statements/questions I've made here, and I'm still around.

+1 :D I totally get why MLE is like that sometimes.

 

And all yo newcomers - don't let that get to you. The more experienced you become the less "stupid questions" you will ask and the more you'll warm up to MLE and us <3 :P
