Was that three pairs of the akg headphones and a schiit dac headphone amp? are you keeping all three headphones or are you just testing them out?

Sup,

 

Is that Change's K612? Screw the Bifrost, I want a Magni. Much I sense in you. 

post #23554 of 24970

Wait a minute: I was supposed to wrap the headband in that cloth thing, NOT use it as a cable wrap?

 

Oh well, still felt comfortable enough to me without it.

 

Yes, that's Change's K612 in that box, and no, I definitely wasn't expecting that Bifrost to come packed in literal popcorn!

 

...Is that a second-gen Wacom Bamboo tablet on your desk? Didn't think you'd keep such a thing in portrait orientation, or that you might have one to draw stuff with.

 

In unrelated news, it turns out my MMX 300's cable is in worse condition than I thought; sometimes the mic portion will cut out, and that's the part that doesn't have a spliced replacement plug! I need to have this thing completely recabled one of these days.

That Ev's K712 (which was sent to MLE for testing), Ev's Q701 and Change's K612.  Also a Schiit Bifrost Uber DAC (not amp).

post #23556 of 24970
Change's K612, my Q701 and K712, and now, my first discrete DAC. It has the über upgrade. Only problem (besides popcorn smell) is that I don't have an RCA to RCA cable, or any music on my computer currently.

Hey guys. So I've had my Titanium HD and k712 Pros for about a week now. I love it very much. (Coming from a onboard mobo soundcard, Turtle Beach's x11's, and DSS). But it feels like something is missing. An amp maybe? If so. which one should I purchase? Should I use my DSS for the meantime?

 

Also I'm confused with the game mode. What's everyones settings like? I'm having a hard time with setting the X-FI software to either 5.1 surround, 2.1 speakers, or just headphones. I've tried to look online but all the threads are like 2-4 years old. They said something about configuring windows to 5.1 surround, and having X-FI to headphones. Don't know if thats true or not. Should I enable X-FI CMSS-3D with these headphones? Or enable the other extra settings?

 

Please help. Thanks.

post #23558 of 24970

This should be the right settings:

 

Windows to 5.1 /7.1 surround and X-Fi to headphones and enable CMSS-3D for the surround effect.

I'm also thinking what good headphone AMP should pair up with TiHD? I own a X-Fi Titanium and O2 and thinking of buying an external DAC (optical) or TiHD? :confused_face_2:  (I think this question should be posted on The Nameless Guide to PC Gaming Audio)

you don't have to set the windows to multi channel, CMSS-3D/THX Surround work differently compared with the Dolby Headphone. Just turn on the CMSS-3D in the driver software ...

Thanks for the reply. Awesome!

Welp, my Modi stopped working so I'm returning it.  (Hope they don't charge me shipping to return their broken product, but I'm not expecting much based on my communications with them so far.)

 

Looking forward to @Evshrug's impressions of the Bifrost since that's next on my list of DAC's to try.

post #23562 of 24970

I am going to buy the Bifrost as well...

Anyone here play titanfall on the one? I have the mixamp, k712 pro and an O2 DAC/amp combo and have a very hard time picking up footsteps. Anyone have any experience with this game as I just got the equipment and was wondering if it was more the game.

If anything, it's the game. When playing Titanfall on PC, there is so much going on around you that you hardly ever have a chance to listen for footsteps. You can kind of hear footsteps if you are lucky enough to be somewhere in which there aren't explosions nor gunshots but otherwise, they aren't too audible for me. You can hear jetpacks and jumping quite a bit better though. I'd say, enjoy the sound and depend more on the minimap for detecting enemies biggrin.gif

I play it on the Xbone, and the only time I can really hear footsteps is when I'm up an a relatively quiet rooftop.  I've definitely turned and killed folks who were trying to snap my neck... I can just imagine the looks on their faces!  lol

 

And as grumpy said, jet packs are really loud.  There's a "stealth pack" to fix that at higher levels, but I don't know if I've ever seen it used.

 

Oh and the Q701 is GREAT for hearing where gunshots are coming from, which is what I use it for more than footsteps.
