    Surround Sound headphones

    I want to get a pair of surround sound headphones for PC gameing. I have looked into the Astro A40's but I'm not convinced of the price. I heard that parting the AD700's with an Astro Mixamp will make a great pair of Surround sound headphones. Is this true and are they good for gameing?  I have...

    Very High Quality Audio Solutions ($750-1000) for Gaming?

    I know that gaming audio is basically a joke, for good reason, but as a long-time lurker (5+ years at this point) and a big-time gamer, it's been killing me that there really aren't any great audio products available for gamers. Seems like a case of "you get what you ask for"--the gaming market...

    Looking to upgrade to a sound card.

    As of now, I use Sennheiser HD558's connected to a Denon E300 AVR. Which feeds from the HDMI out of the video card, into the receiver getting both audio and video. For me, it's been fine this way. Would there be any SQ difference upgrading to a soundcard with a headphone amp? I'm looking to get...

    Xonar STX and Astro A40's

    I was looking into getting the STX to use with my Astro A40. My question is, I use the Astros to broadcast so would I use the mixamp that comes with the astros or would I lost the use of the mixamp. Would I connect the mixamp to the soundcard or its that just a waste of the soundcard. Thanks.

    Best HeadSETS for use with Astro Mixamp (gaming)

    I have the AD-700 that I use for music, but with the mixamp on shooters they have very screeching highs that literally hurt my ears. Directional audio and such is fine with Dolby Headphone, but I need something with a little more bass. I actually prefer a headset with a microphone. I'd rather...
