    I only reply based on stuff I have actual experience with. If I don't, it is because I haven't heard/tested the headphone in question. Believe it or not, I don't make money off this, and the only times I get to listen to something new is out of my pocket or when a company sends me something for review which is rare. I make barely above minimum wage irl, don't have my own place anymore, so you can understand why I can't just try every headphone out there. Life ain't been that kind to me.

    On a positive note, be on the lookout for the Creative Air review which is coming up hopefully within the week. Hopefully depending on how I feel after the surgery Tuesday, then I'm off work for two weeks, giving me time to finish up the review and whatnot.

    What? DAC built in then?
  7. WhiteHartMart
    Shame its stereo only on PS4 :frowning2:
  8. illram
    Interesting. They say PS4 compatible but wouldn't that just be bluetooth stereo? (Since GSX does not do DD+ decoding.)

    edit: x-post with WhiteHartMart

    And on Xbox?

    Doubt it works at all as it uses a USB Bluetooth device.
  11. Fegefeuer
    There won't be any solution for PS4 surround sound over USB in this lifetime.

    PS5 should be much more supportive but most likely will use the Sony inhouse solution as the default model.

    Confirmation for some of the posts above, from Sennheiser's page:
    I've pinged @Evshrug and @Sennheiser for some more details, if they happen to have any available. This has my interest now.

    I asked Sennheiser earlier and they confirmed 2 channel only on PS4 and also confirmed there were two volume controls so voice and game volume could be adjusted independently. Be interested if that is the case for sure on PS4.

    I wouldn't be eager to commit to anything with the PS5 around the corner. That could change the headset game, at least in the surround bussiness department.

    Any suggestions where to go from here?

    Currently have AD700x + Astro Mixamp 2013. I really like the ability to game and hear my pc at the same time, I have a Blue Yeti mic separate as a mic solution on PS4(I had a bad experience with modmic).

    I game on PS4 and have the mixamp plugged to a desktop with the optical going into the mixamp from the PS4. I originally did this setup for competitive fps games like R6. Nowadays I have gone a bit more casual and more into cinematic/story-driven games and more into critical listening of music on my desktop.

    I want to upgrade because I feel like mainly I'd want something not bass light(which was great for fps, but a negative for music), something great across the board. They have to be open-back and I'm hoping whatever I end up with is able to be driven by my current mixamp. Something of a significant bump is what I'm looking for without having to break the bank, right now I'm looking at ~$300 CAD as a budget. I don't know enough about DACs and mixamps and ultimately don't know whether an upgrade is recommended in order to drive higher end stuff, I'd be open to it and might be willing to raise the budget by saving more.

    A thread like this was a nice read but because the many options and not exactly understanding what matters, I'm ultimately lost and indecisive to just pick something on my own. Would appreciate some help.
