  1. If you wish to keep a similar setup, Modmic. http://www.modmic.com/
  2. Used USB audio interface will be your best bet I think, if you really can't return it for a USB version. Besides, the XLR variant will give you TONS of upgrade choices, you can get a proper compressor to limit loud sounds, keep the good AT2020 and upgrade your interface at a later date for potentially better sound instead of limiting you to one mic at a time, you can upgrade mic and still use the same interface, so you won't have to install drivers (even though they just take like 15 seconds usually), and probably tons more things that I have no idea about because I'm no audio engineer, and I do not own my own studio either.
  3. I think most people have the thought of "it uses 20 watts more than the nvidia counterpart, so it'll cost me more in electricity!" and also the good old "AMD cards are so hot, it'll burn down my house!" which are all moot points, electricity is cheap and 20 watts is like a 20 cent a year, and the cards aren't that hot when you get a good cooler on them, AMD reference coolers just suck.
  4. Yeah, and? my Phonar Micro 2 does 91 dB at 1 watt.
  5. Thank you for moving it, but this was not a "help me" thread. This was more a "hey guys did you know this" thread. I do change it back to full range when it gets reset, which often happens when I'm updating drivers. But I'm also getting the error on DisplayPort from time to time.
  6. Are you guys aware that by standard, NVidia sets a limited RGB range on HDMI outputs? The standard, limited range is 16-235, and everything looks like crap with it enabled. You can of course change it in the NVidia Control Panel, by going to Change Resolution, and on the screen you will see the option for "Output dynamic range:". Change it from limited to full. The tooltips there suggest that many TV's have limited RGB range. Both my DisplayPort and my HDMI connected monitors get the 16-235 RGB range by standard. I do have this issue myself, as I noticed the RGB range was limited the first time I plugged an HDMI connected screen to my GTX660Ti, and I see SO many people who also have that problem and have no idea about it, they just think that it's supposed to be like it. Does anyone have any suggestions, how we could get this info to the masses, and potentially make NVidia have the standard option be 0-255 instead of 16-235? EDIT: I don't really have a problem with it, I can tell when my range is limited, and I just set it to full range, but the people that don't know about it are the victims here.
  7. Why do you think you need one?
  8. All of them apart from the V-Moda's are great in that regard. the V-Moda's are a liiiiiittle bit too bassy in terms of their sound signature. Here's a graph. http://graphs.headphone.com/graphCompare.php?graphType=0&graphID[]=4011&graphID[]=533&graphID[]=2861&graphID[]=713&scale=30
  9. Not sure as I have not been able to test the closed Sennheiser headphones / headsets. What I do know is that the PC350SE and G4ME ZERO is basically a PXC450 but with wires and a mic on the side. And it has more bass than the HD558, which is the PC360 / G4ME ONE. But if you want more bass, there are always other headphones. V-Moda Crossfade LP1 and M100 come to mind, you can get them with mics as well. Beyerdynamic DT770 (no mic options) and Custom One Pro (which you can also get a mic for). Shure SRH440 with 840 pads (or just SRH840's), Sennheiser HD280 Pro are also an option. No mic options for that. These should all be below 200 USD new, as far as I can remember.
  10. Yes they do breathe, that is correct. but the closed ones are also fantastic.
  11. comfort? The sennheiser PC360 and G4ME ONE and 518, 558 and 598 are all exactly the same. PC350SE and G4ME ZERO are exactly the same. They're all fantastic in terms of comfort. oh and they have alright bass but not as much as the Custom One Pro's.
  12. Both Amazon and ebay have used HD558's for 80 bucks, and modmic is 50 bucks on amazon, and 35 on ebay. 130 or 115. a used Sennheiser G4ME ONE is also around 130 bucks. And you can use the modmic on several headphones, you won't need to buy a new mic when you need a new set of headphones. and the other way around as well. Get a mic and headphones separate.
  13. You might be able to find PC360 (open) or PC350 SE (closed) for even less money, and they're the same, just different colors.
  14. XxDeadpool67xX: yeah, this. I once read a review of the Siberia Elite when they first came out, and they got so much praise. Then I started using better headphones for a year or two, then tried the Siberia Elite. It was such a meh experience.
  15. soundstage is not frequency range. Soundstage is how wide the sound feels. a wider soundstage means better positional / directional audio. Picture a recording of an orchestra. A wide soundstage (and detailed mids), will help you literally place where the instruments are in the room. EDIT: and it will tell you where the asshole shooting at you is.
  16. I tried the Steelseries Siberia Elite (first elite that came out) and they suck. muddy mids and bloated bass, just as I said. HyperX Clouds are a LOT better. I have tried those. Much more detailed, less bloated bass. The mic was meh though. Frequency response range means almost nothing, as long as it's reasonable. Average human hearing is 20-20khz. As long as the range isn't like.. 300 hz - 1 Khz, it doesn't mean ANYTHING.
  17. The Steelseries ones would suck. the "gaming" term doesn't mean a single thing. It can't be the fact that it has a mic, cus that is "headset". headphones don't have mics. 99% of "gaming" headsets have bloated bass and muddy mids, and a slightly narrow soundstage. A certain sound? No. I already said that 99% of them sound like ass. If something is to be good for gaming, you want: clean sound with a wide soundstage. that is all. And nothing is required for it either. Sure, there are games where you need a mic for things, but it doesn't have to be attached to your headphones (making it a headset).
  18. No use in fighting. I am certain the Custom One Pro's are a LOT better than Beats.
  19. I really hope all of that is a joke (not just the Beats part, I mean) and you'll actually use the Custom One Pro's for everything, because they are a great all round headphone.
  20. Custom One Pro will have better bass than either of those. The Elite Prism sucks a lot. Sennheiser ones are good.
  21. "gaming amp+dac" would imply only audio output. you need an adc for mics.
  22. You won't get 7.1 unless you purchase a 7.1 home cinema setup. 7.1 in headphones is possible (razer tiamat) but it doesn't have the same effect. it sucks. I've tried a couple different software solutions, and I've tried the Razer Tiamat for a couple minutes. It all sucks. Use the headphone option in the games you play, that is all. I have no idea what you mean by "if there is a way then I can replace the soundcard with a modmic". Mod mic is a mic. That is all. http://www.modmic.com/ Those are very different headphones. Custom One Pro have the bass switch thing, you can choose which bass response you want, which is great. Overall sounds good, slightly elevated highs, but a very like-able sound. AD900X are open. The A900X is closed. I would suggest the A700X instead if it's at retail price. 199 for A700X, 299 for A900X. The A700X sounds very good, a very mid and high-centered sound, lots of detail. If it's close to the open AD700X, not a lot of bass. A closed headphone naturally has a narrower soundstage than an open headphone, but if the A700X is anything like its open brother, the AD700X, it has a nice wide soundstage. the 900X series is just a little better in every aspect. Maybe not value though. but the A700X is 130 usd on amazon, while a900x is 145 usd, so I think it'd be worth to get the a900x instead of the A700X at the moment. If I were you, I'd get the A900X over the Custom One Pro. I've tried the Custom One Pro and they were good, but not entirely my cup of coffee. But that's just me. If you want more bass, definitely Custom One Pro.
  23. Lose that soundcard thing you got there, your onboard is MORE than adequate for the Custom One Pro's, and get a mod mic or something, and you're golden.
  24. Sounds great, I hope this will actually get some sure footing and spread out. Not certain about the 3x and 5x things, what they would translate to in non-theoretical scenarios, but an actual improvement in charge speed, density and such is fantastic. SO many things can benefit from this. EDIT: also, Intel backing this is HUGE. It's ACTUALLY gonna happen, with a serious backer like Intel.
