PS4 with 3.5mm x2 Type Headset... - Page 19

For the purpose of gaming, I think the Mixamp works just fine with it, but prepare for a lot of warmth and woolly bass. I think the DT770 pro 80 would work real well with something like the Magni or E12. Both tighten up bass, and sound nice and tight in general. The E9 is a hair warm, and would probably work the least best out of the ones I posted on my guide for the 770 pro 80.

@Mad Lust Envy

Do you think the EQ on the mixamp 2013 would be any help with the bass of the Dt770's?

I believe hes talking about overall bass quality not quantity.

I know. I didn't mean the question to be a direct response to his advice about an additional amp but moreso as a general question while I had his attention, before I make my purchases. I am still deciding between buying a used 5.8 and dealing with all the nonsense that comes with it or just being wired. I thought maybe if the EQ would help offset what could be an issue with the dt770's (I won't really know if it is for me until I hear them) then maybe it would help make the decision between the two easier.

The DT770 has a problem with both quantity and quality. It's overly prominent, and loose. the Mixamp Pro's bass reduction eq may help the bass, but it will highlight the harshness.

Ok guys I have been reading this thread for the past few days and I guess a lot of us are having a few issues with our PC headsets or other headsets. I have 2 pairs of headsets, Steel series H wireless and Steel series siberia v2. I got the H ones about a month ago, works great with the PS4, I like them better than any Astro's a40's or a50's, in my opinon they are better than those, great features and no issues setting them up. The V2's I use for my pc and love them great pc headset.

 

So with this said I wanted to use my V2's with my ps4 which I can but no chat as we all know. I have a sound card in my rig, Sound Blaster Z, which has 2 optical inputs, one is for out and the other is for in. I use my sound card to play audio from the ps4 to my rig's speakers or my v2's, no issues there. The SB z card has an encoder so I can use the optical from the ps4 to the optical in, in the sound card. Works great no issues there.

 

I read rc10mike thread and how he has his set up and tried it to see if I could make it work, the only diffrence was that I am using a sound card and he is using amp. I went out and got this usb adapter

 

http://www.sabrent.com/category/audio/USB-AUDD/

 

Its is a very cheap adapter,I might say. Well I set it up just like rcmike10 pic shows, Well it kinda worked, I can talk, send a recorded message but I can not hear myself or anyone else. Well I tried something else I connected a 4 pole 3.5mm Y adapter to the ps4 controller. From there I connected a 4 pole male to male 3.5mm cable to the controller and to the usb sound card connected to the ps4. 

 

Well it worked!!!! It worked for 5 mins and then it just stopped!!!! I checked the cables unplugged the usb adapter a few times checked, changed settings, I did everything. I could not make it work again. While it worked it sound fine, just like if I was using my H wireless headset, it sounded great!!! I am bummed because I could not get it to work again but I am going to fry's and pick up a few usb adapters that I seen that they had and going to try again with the set up that mike shows or try my own set up and see.

 

What I do not understand is why would a cheap 2 dollar mic that the ps4 comes with or any cellphone headphones that are a 4 pole 3.5mm work with the ps4???? I mean we have high end headsets and we can not get them to work with this console. I tried using the my Galaxy's Note 2 headphones just to see if they would work just to use the mic and it worked!!!! I could hear people chat and people could hear me, I just dont understand???

 

I will update you guys to see if I get this working with the other adapters that I try, wish me luck???

Im having a hard time visualizing what you are talking about with your setup.

post #277 of 356

I tried a soundcard with a SPDIF input. After a few hours I finally managed to get it work. Problem is that I have to run my pc while using it. The other problem is that you can't support the card via ps4 usb power input. Otherwise the ps4 gives out the sound via usb and that means that It's only stereo. Gonne try out the voice chat tonight.

 

I tried to support the box with power by my mobile phone usb adapter. That doesn't work.

Gonne update you If It's possible to use it without a pc.

I tried for 4 hours trying to make it work and no matter what you do it just will not work??? I dont under stand how a $2.00 headphones from my cell phone will work but a $100.00 headset just will not??? 

 

Mike this is how I have my set up.

 

Ps4 connected by optical cable to my PC internal sound card, http://www.soundblaster.com/products/sound-blaster-z.aspx  Pc is always on for this to work.

 

My siberia v2 connected to the sound card, using a 3.5mm 4 pole Y adapter, plugged in to the headset jack on the sound card.

 

On the ps4 I had somthing like you have, a USB sterio adapter. From there I pretty much set it up like your pic in this thread.

 

i also tried working with the Ps4 controller jack and still nothing. I can talk to people they do hear me but I do not hear them at all??? 

 

I pretty much gave up on this and just use my steelseries H wireless for the ps4 and my V2's for the pc. 

 

I wanted to use my PC sound card because it has alot of sound features and it just sounds Aweasome, but the H wireless are a great headset too but nothing compared to using a pc sound card.

There are a few problems that appear. First problem is If you go with optical output you can't connect the headset via usb for voice chat. The same problem with the pole y adapter. I tried the solution myself that doesn't work. You can talk but you can't hear the other people talking.

 

USB Soundcards are useless If you use headsets with surround sound. So there is only one option. Buy the astro mixamp. Or maybe my solution works witha soundcard that has a SPDIF input.

yeah Red, I dont think we will get this to work at all, really sucks that sony does not give us a patch to help this out.

I'm done with this bullsh**. Yesterday night I tried to get the voice chat runnin. No chance If you use a soundcard with SPDIF the mic won't work. I'm officially done to get my mic work. F*** this crap.

post #282 of 356

I have settled for a basic version solution for now.

 

PS4 > optical > SU-DH1 dolby amp > ATH-A900.

 

PS4 > Controller > supplied mic.

 

Basically I have the earpiece (loosely) in my ear for in game chat, and then put my headphones over top.

 

 

*Not exactly elegant, but functional until they add bluetooth support, and and option for in game chat to go via headphones..

Additionally, TB has a PS4 Headset Upgrade Kit in the works. Because the PS4 lacks analog audio inputs, audio is handled by HDMI, or by digital optical cabling. This means the expensive analog headset you liked to use with your PS3 is obsolete before you even buy a new console. The DAC1, as it's being called, attaches to your analog headset of choice, and converts the analog connectors to digital optical audio. Not bad for a small USB dongle, right? Pricing and availability is TBA.

More technical Info about the PS4 Upgrade Kit:

 

Quote:

PS4 Upgrade Kit:

A new PS4 Upgrade Kit will allow owners of analogue stereo headsets to use the console’s optical port for game audio. A USB-powered converter takes audio from the optical SPDIF connection and outputs it through a 3.5mm stereo jack, and includes a 2.5mm to 3.5mm chat cable for chat audio. The PS4 Upgrade Kit will launch in the second quarter of 2014 with a MSRP of less than $40 USD.

Sounds like an spdif dac with some crappy internal amp.

Essentially something like a non-proprietary turtle beach DSS.

Now... if it has some form of surround... then it may be worth looking into. Otherwise, nothing new.
