I know people said the method of using the USB soundcard plugged into the front port of the DSS doesn't work or have I read incorrectly?

Can't the headphone be plugged into the front port of the Turtle Beach DSS headphone jack and USB soundcard plugged into the USB port on the DSS. The mic then plugged into the USB soundcard?

Like this:


Will this work. Will the PS4 recognise the mic and output the sound via the headphone? The USB desktop mic method works but i'm not sure with a 3.5mm mic converted to USB.

You could always just plug the USB soundcard into the other PS4 USB port if the DSS USB causes issues. Only issue I see is that particular soundcard might not fit in the PS4. You could use the ILuv USB Audio Adapter.

Any chances that we will see a DTS Headphone X Mixamp/Decoder for consoles?

Thanks for the reply.

I was looking at ordering the modmic 4.0 and use my AD700 headphones. I want to plug the modmic 4.0 into the PS4 controller and plug the headphone into the turtle beach DSS. I could just try the USB soundcard method as well instead of plugging the mic into the DS4.

Always using the usb sound card method because you get better mic quality instead of using the controller jack.

Thanks for that. I will need to buy the correct USB soundcard since the once i used with my ps3 won't fit in the ps4 USB port.

You don't need to buy a new usb sound card. Just buy a usb extension cable.;)

 

It's cheaper btw.

Using the Astro Mixamp 2011 and the astro y-splitterfor my headset and clip-on mic (console settings are correct per the ps4/astro setup video). The chat volume I hear is very soft while everyone hears me just fine. Staying wired isn't a problem for me. What do I need in order to hear normal chat volume levels? Or, am I stuck having to upgrade to the latest mixamp version.

There is so much crap, bad information in this thread it is unbelievable.  No wonder so many people are just throwing their hands up in the air and buying Astro A50's.

 

Over the course of the last week I have experimented with each and every possible combination of the following:

 

Astro A40

Astro A50

MixAmp Pro + Sennheiser G4ME

MixAmp Pro + other PC headsets

 

The bottom line is this: the Astro's honestly just sound poor in comparison to the Sennheisers.  But the Astro's sound wayyyy better than the Sony Golds and any of the other off-the-shelf "gaming" headsets from Tritton and Turtle Beach and the like.  You do not need a Schiit Supreme or whatever the hell that thing is called. The MixAmp Pro is more than capable of driving my 600 ohm BeyerD DT880, it can drive your gaming headset of choice.

 

Here is the MixAmp Pro you want: http://www.amazon.com/ASTRO-Gaming-MixAmp-Pro-playstation-2/dp/B00NY5ZNZA/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1431549586&sr=1-1&keywords=mixamp+pro

Here are the headphones I prefer: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-G4ME-BLACK-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00KK8ZLEC/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1431549611&sr=1-1&keywords=sennheiser+g4me+one

 

1. If you don't care about talking to people and sounding like a robot:

 

MixAmp Pro + G4ME One's

PLUS you will need http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-headsets-separate-headphone-microphone/dp/B004SP0WAQ/ref=pd_sim_147_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0V08Q36ZKPHJJ66T1G0W

You will plug the headphones into the mixamp with this Y-splitter cable and you are good to go.

 

2. If you DO care about having your voice heard loud and clearly:

 

MixAmp Pro + G4ME One's

PLUS this same cable as above: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-headsets-separate-headphone-microphone/dp/B004SP0WAQ/ref=pd_sim_147_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=0V08Q36ZKPHJJ66T1G0W

AND you will need the Turtle Beach "Chat cable" to connect the controller to the MixAmp pro: http://www.amazon.com/Turtle-PlayStation-Headset-Compatibility-TBS-0276-01-4/dp/B00HS5FETM/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1431549515&sr=1-1&keywords=turtle+beach+chat+cable

 

 

This video explains the chat issue with the MixAmp Pro and why you need that Turtle Beach cable for good voice quality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd3CxBbrRS8

 

All this talk about amplifiers and old versions of the MixAmp that you can't get any longer are a huge waste of time. You don't need anything other than what I posted above. Sub in your own headphones if you have other preferences.

 

if you do NOT care about 5.1 audio I recommend just plugging in some iOs/Android chat-capable headphones like Momentums into the controller and call it a day. The sound quality is more than acceptable and mic quality is great.

 

FWIW - I am extremely hesitant to recommend Astro products as there is much evidence they are aware of all the problems with their MixAmp's but do nothing about it.  But as far as I know, there are no alternatives to what the MixAmp pro can do for the PS4.
