ModMic on my DT880!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 

So Its been a minute since I've posted, but I had to put this up.

 

I just got a new mic from Jim over at http://www.modmic.com/ and put it on my DT880's, here are some pics.  I chose an under mount style as the cup on them made for a nice location.  As you can see in my profile I'm an Xbox gamer and use the Astro MixAmp into a Schiit Asgard amp as these are 600 ohms.  Anyway the mic went on great and works very well.  I love how light weight it is and I have it bent in a way that I can't see it out of my peripheral vision.  I cant even tell its there, it just works.  The sound is great as my friends have complimented on it over Xbox Live.  For you guys with a custom set up this is a great way to go.  I have gone through a couple different mic set ups so far and this has been my best one yet.

They only have the one design that I know of for sale right now as you can see on their site.  That is the one I have there in my pics.

I think jackwess meant, "what mics from any other company have you tried?" Not just "what other AntLion mics".

 

Interesting choice, mounting them below the cup! I have one on my 880 too, and it's on the side where it says "DT 880". 

Nice headphone stand too. What is it?

LOL.. I have used a mic from Tritton that i made a custom clip for, but I had to have a custom 2.5 female to 3.5 male cable made.  Head-fi user Mad Max made a cable for me and it works great.  I just didn't like my clip I designed and need to redesign it.  i will hold off on it for now as this mic works great.

 

The stand is old parts from stirling solar engine that I designed while working for a solar company.  I don't work there any more but the parts made a nice stand.

Hey, I know this is an old post, but listening to something on medium-70% levels on PC, does the modmic pick up the sound of the DT 880's?
