    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Finally got my TY32 from Penon, not the S version. Does anyone have any foam suggestions to tame the high mid end. Vocals are insanely sharp and fatiguing. Worse then a DT990.(Which I own and love by the way.) Bass is great but I can't concentrate on anything but those screaming frequencies...

    Mass Effect Andromeda

    Just finished it last night started just burning through the story when I realized that nothing I did made any impact on future gameplay. Never thought I would miss paragon and renegade as much I do. The difficult "choices" have absolutely no impact on your character relations as far as I can...

    Sony MDR MA900 Impressions Thread

    For all you MA900 lovers still lurking in this thread, I was wondering what the next step up headphone wise would be? Would like something close to the same sound and do not want to lose the soundstage. Love the out of head feeling I personally get from these headphones. I am not getting rid...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    I ordered from the VE website not Aliexpress. Was surprised when they showed up. Also made sure the order was under $20. (big deal in Canada importing.)   Finally found a fit. It was with oddest thing. I tried the foam from my new not even a hour old SHE3800. Don't know why it didn't work with...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Got my Monk+ in. There is definitely something special there but getting a proper fit for me has been a nightmare. Tried so many different foams and stacking and ear hooks but when ever I stop holding them in I lose all the low end. Becomes all shrilly highs and fatiguing lower mids. I am sure I...

    Absolute best budget earbuds?

    Thanks Willber. I am looking at earbuds can't stand iems in my ear. Plus the Godzilla walk, as some people call it, drives me crazy. The iem suggestion was for my partner he loves my ksc75 but would love to have a bit more isolation. He uses and likes the DT990pro and his Bose (don't freak out)...

    This is bound to lead to a fight. Though there are way to many AKG users on this post so it would probably sway that way. Though I would personally disagree and say the MA900.    I really have to update my profile.    Hey MLE are you going to grill mod your HE400's? I am also in the same...

    I am very interested in this since my mixamp just took a dump and astro doesn't want to support mixamp users. Lost a lot of faith in them.    Thanks for posting this Evs.

    I own both and to be honest unless you live in Canada and have access to a replaceable cord and ear pads, just buy the OG CAL.   I think I dislike the CAL2 ear pads even more then I dislike the OG CALs. Luckily I have a pair of HM5 pads around, now I just have to replace the cable. I hate mic...

    Well I guess that would depend on where you live. In Canada the damn things are only $20 apart so for the better build and pads, plus I already have a CAL1 I figured what the hell.   Yah I can't see you enjoying them if they are even bassier.   I know Tyll has been brought up a lot as not...

    Sony MA900. All the headphone you will ever need. Unless you want to get your skull crushed by bass in dubstep tracks, then you would need a second headphone.

    PS4 with 3.5mm x2 Type Headset...

    I think this proves there is something really screwy going on with the USB on the ps4. You guys using USB devices your chat might actually be working but it is so quiet you can't hear it. My chat with my 2011 works if I set the mixamp to full volume, mixer dial all the way to chat and my E09 to...

    I don't think the DT990pros or AD700 are what you are looking for. Ad700 is bass shy which would mean bass guitars are going to sound boring, lifeless and possibly nonexistent. The DT990pros are lacking midrange because the bass is so thick on it. The DT990/600 would be a better Beyer open...

    PS4 with 3.5mm x2 Type Headset...

    I just bought a 3.5mm male to 2.5mm female TRRS adapter for $3 I am going to try with my xbox chat cable hoping it works. I still think in the long run i am going to go wireless. I tripped over my mixamp usb cable after work it twisted my plasma on its stand. I have my usb plugged into my...

    PS4 with 3.5mm x2 Type Headset...

    I really really need to get this cable, but I can't because I'm Canadian and it won't ship to Canada. Astro REFUSES to admit anything is wrong. Support even told a 2010/11 owner that his mixamp must be broken yet it works on every other console. Another poster found that if he removed the USB...

    PS4 and new Headset?

    There is a fix involving a Turtle Beach PS4 chat cable. But yes out of the box the 2011 version is not working.    The 2013 with the latest patch does work.

    Yup reading more about it on another website. It is strictly a lan broadcasting tool and pass through. Another great loss for the Dolby Headphone community. It is sort of starting to piss me off we are so tied to Astro. None of these companies are willing to take a chance, and Astro after...

    Nice catch Axel. Then what is the point of the optical input then?

    PS4 and new Headset?

    As far as I know Neo it has to be a Turtle Beach headset no way around it sorry.    Yet the Plyr series was developed by Astro. Maybe they will take what they have learned and apply it to the A60. After looking at the Steelseries H9 wireless though Astro needs to seriously up there game in the...

    I am surprised this hasn't been brought up yet and for a crazy price right now on amazon almost the same price as an astro mixamp.   http://www.amazon.com/Force-Tournament-Mixer-Not-Machine-Specific/dp/B0099R6GU8   I don't know how it sounds but if it works as advertised you wouldn't need...

    PS4 and new Headset?

    No it can't on the DSS1 because the DSS1 uses usb to the headset itself for chat.

    It will work. But you don't won't have a mic. Unless you have a Turtle Beach DSS1 compatible headset.
