I am a little new to purchasing high end headphones and am currently wondering about two different options for my setup. After reading through a couple of forums here I am pretty sure I have come to an understanding of what will work for me.
This setup is to be used with both a Playstation 3 and a PC:
Sennheiser HD 598
Paired with a mic to make it compatible for voice chat in game:
Zalman ZM-MIC1 Microphone
Lastly to connect everything together to a PS3:
Astro MixAmp Pro:
Would I need any additional cables in order to make this setup work on PS3? My understanding is I would also need a TOS Optical cable. As far as I understand I plug the Headphones/Mic into the inputs on the MixAmp device and then connect it via Optical cable to the PS3? Does anyone know if this is correct?
Use the Sennheiser PC 360 HD headset in conjunction with the MixAmp to connect to PS3. In your opinions is it a huge difference going from the 360 to the HD598 in terms of sound quality?
Thank you for any assistance anyone can provide I really appreciate it, I have been trying to do a lot of research into this and most people seem to be of the opinion that headphones with an external mic are going to be superior sound quality then that of headset with a mic built in.
