I forget which is the amp or DAC, excuse my ignorance. Anyways what are your thoughts on what I should buy to really make these sound the best for gaming? Also so I "need" a DAC for these? If so I read I couldn't pair modi and magni both with the mix amp correct?

 

You will likely want an amp if only to get the volume levels up.  If so, the E12 Mont Blanc and Magni are both recommended often around here.  One is a portable (needs to be charged) and one is a desktop (needs to be plugged in all the time).  Get whichever is more convenient for you, IMO.

Thanks in advance

These are only 150 bucks on Amazon right now seems like a really good deal? I'm coming from a pair of hd558's and I'm hoping these will provide a more fun and immersive atmosphere for single player gaming. Thoughts? Suggestions??

 

I can't confirm that as I've never heard the Beyer's.  But I know my E11 isn't that beefy of an amp... I suspect you might want a little more juice.  Then again, Evs says his DT880 is just fine right out of the DSS so you'll probably be fine too.

So, I just went to my mailbox... and...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

LOL!

So I've decided to get the Superlux HD668B headphones and I have a bit of a elaborate plan that I'm not sure will work or if there's a better way of accomplishing what I'm trying to do.

 

Basically, I'll be plugging this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5mm-stereo-TRRS-audio-male-to-Earphone-headset-microphone-adapter-PC-iphone-/390785856921?pt=US_Cell_Phone_PDA_Cables_Adapters&hash=item5afca6f599

into the jack near the ear.

 

Then I'll plug this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/301032500289

in the mic port of the above adapter.

 

Then I'll plug this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1m-4-Pole-35mm-Jack-Plug-to-35mm-Socket-Extension-Cable-005820-/380487036027

into the 3.5mm male of the above adapter.

 

That cable is then plugged into this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5mm-AUX-Audio-Mic-Splitter-Cable-Earphone-Headphone-Adapter-Female-to-2-Male-/291132593316?pt=AU_Television_Accessories&hash=item43c8dad4a4

 

Which then plugs into a Xonar U3 which is plugged into my laptop.

 

Essentially, I'm trying to create a temporary headset setup for my HD688B's for gaming.

Is this the best way to do this? My main aim is to keep it as one cable, however, my concern is that all these connections will deteriorate the sound quality. The V-Moda Boom Mic won't work as the HD668B's jack near the ear is male not female, hence my elaborate plan. However, if anyone knows of a mic/audio cable which is split at both ends, one dual male one dual female, that'd work too but I don't think it exists.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Philips FIDELIO X2

 

http://www.ep-schroeder-werdohl.de/philips-x2-00-fidelio

 

same MSRP as the X1, so no worries it seems.

The big question, however, remains...

Removable pads?!?

Can't You just plug the headphones and the mic directly into the u3?

Mic from Chinese store 2.5€ , my chat friends said they sound clean as other good mic headset. Very nice, now I can take mic when i don't use headphones for gaming.

Then my mic won't be near my mouth. The way my laptop is set up with my monitor make the U3 to far away. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Or plug the mic into an extension cable and plug the other end into the U3, You original setup has so many unnecessary adapters

Hey thanks for answering..,, last question- for the one I plug in through USB, can I just plug it into my 360 or ps3? And do you know if I buy the mangi modi stack I could plug that all into the mix amp and have it work and be beneficial?

But that defeats the whole purpose. I'd have two cable and no way of attaching it to my headphones and therefore no way of having the mic near my mouth. I don't want a desktop mic but a temporary headset setup. I'm not sure you're seeing how it'll fit together. Google a photo of the 668B without its cable attached and look at the links I posted and it should make sense.

My setup won't create a mess of cables but it is made of probably too many connections, hence why posted. To see if maybe someone knew of a cable (dual male dual female possibly?) or way to make it work nicer.

Cheers

Dude I like the look of that.... I feel like I should have bought a boom mix instead of the clip on.... Still they seem cheap to buy so I could do it if the clip doesn't work out enough
