So, I was wondering if this setup still works? I have a PS4, a now older Yamaha AVR, and a set of Senn HD558's. I've just started playing multiplayer and want to add the ability to chat with other players and friends. But I don't really want to add more components, like the Astro mixamp, if I don't absolutely need to do so. Not to mention $$$. So if I pickup the antlion modmic, would this setup work? The modmic connected to the USB headset adapter?
The only other "simple" solution I think I see is to get a Vmoda boom mic pro and mod my 558's to remove the locking mechanism, add a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter and then the 558/vmoda would be plugged into the DS4 controller. But I assume I would lose a fair bit of sound quality connecting through the DS4 as opposed to what I get from my current PS4-hdmi-AVR-headphone setup?
To be honest, I'm still making my way through the 28 pages, but I am open to suggestions.

The y-adapter is needed to sort of "intercept" the incomming chat and play it through your headphones. Without it, you will only be able to talk, and you wont hear anyone.
Plugging they y-adapter in line like this decreased my volume, but that was easily fixed.
Im not sure about the Mixamp since Ive never used it.
