Hello guys this is my first post here..I am big audio noob so yeah..
I have problem with my PS4 audio setup..I am on vacation and I bought PS4 so I can play some Playstation exclusives.
I bought DT 990 headphones and e11k amp and antlion v4.0 mic...when I connect amp to optical output on PS4 and headphones to the amp I can hear everything clearly but when I connect antlion mic to my controller there is no audio in my headphones and all audio switches to controller(there is no setting to fix that I think) 
Is there any way to fix that trough optical output or usb port or something?
I was thinking about this but idk if this will even make sense
going trough usb port to fiio d5 and from d5 to e11k amp to my dt 990 headphones?

You connected the PS4's digital optical output to the analog audio input on the E11K??
 
I would think you would need a DAC with an optical input, to go between the PS4 and the E11K.
The FiiO D03K (optical) DAC is $28.

I'm not even sure how you made that happen - optical output is SPDIF, or Sony-Philips Digital Interface Format. The signal that comes out of there is in digital, as in 110010001010101010010010100000001010100101111111111111010101000000000000010101 instructions that need to pass through a DAC first, not an analogue signal that can be fed directly into an amp like the E11.
 
The only way you can "hear" that without running it through a DAC first is if you're on the Nebuchadnezzar
