Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 7/9/2014: Ultrasone HFI-15G Added) - Page 1718

Dammit Astro, get it together. Some native PCM, DTS to Dolby Headphone conversion would be nice. Receivers have been doing that for years...

Do they at least plan to add extra digital inputs? Because this is one thing that is unacceptable nowadays. Gamers don't tend to have just have one console.

FiiO could have came out on top, here. I don't get why they keep making all these excess versions of their X DAPs and E1x amps. I mean, I get it... but.. c'mon already! They can really take over in this situation...

Rant over...

Well FiiO did already state in the petition thread that they'd be open to the idea, but right now they have too many things in the pipe to start branching out into a whole new area. But I agree with you that FiiO really could come in and make the gaming device of the people. They have the capacity to really deliver on an appropriately priced DSP with all of the features the gaming market would like to see. I guess there's not much we can do right now, though. We'll just have to wait it out and see what they do at this point.

I mean, that's FiiO's speciality, right? Making the "Device of the People." I still think they'd be good to go if they just took the 3rd party DSP/DAC chip used in the DSS and tied an E11 amp to it, at least as an easy introductory unit, and then when they make good sales they can release an upgraded unit with the input and amping features we'd love.

Really, any manufacturer could do this... It's a currently underdeveloped entry-level niche.
So, nobody is suggesting FiiO is bad or has any responsibility for this, but it's an opportunity, heck if I had the money I might try to make a startup and create a nicer device.

It would be nice, but don't hold your breath on FiiO. Not when they are opening threads like "what is your dream DAP." We'll probably have to wait for ten more DAPs and a couple more versions of the E12 and E11 to come out before they take a look at the petition again.

Okay, I may have over exaggerated a bit... tongue.gif

But you are right, Ev, they have no obligation to us. Kind of seems like we got put on the back burner, though... and have been forgotten about...
post #25761 of 26134

I don't mind being on the back burner. They're a big company. I just hope that somewhere along the line there's a post-it or something to remind them to come back and look again. Sometimes it's best to forget about something and then come back to it later because you'll have a different perspective then.

 

I will say that this conversation has given me an idea that I'll run with and see what happens.

 I am going to make a dongle with Auro-3D® for surround, when you just want to listen to a bit of dance music it will sound like a void sound system.. comes with a wireless headset..all for just $169.99 in store only 1 per customer!

As long as my Mixamp 5.8 continues to work flawlessly, I'm happy.

I'll probably be back to a 5.8 Mixamp soon. Then my setup will be similar to Change's. How about a photo of the finished cable, my friend?

For a "wireless" system, you sure have to use a fair number of wires.
post #25767 of 26134
^That's because your PS chat cable doesn't work. As you can see in my situation, it's plug and play with just the BoomPro. That cable in the background is from my desk speakers.

For Xbox... and PS users without the cable, your point is true, though...
