    Huh wait, you got me confused on the previous page, I should be able to use headphones, Modmic and splitter with the ps4 controller and get decent results right?
    No need for extra boxes if I have those things? Unless I wanted better sound. Which I probably will in the future but I don't have all the money right now.

    Wanted to look into it today, I mainly want to hear people better, getting better sounds through the headphones is a bonus for me. Currently don't have any sound setup, so it's tv speakers.

    I don't really understand what he's offering to be honest.  Also I don't have a PS4. In simpleton terms, will I be able to connect the headphones to the XBone pad and hear the films and be able to shout abuse at people on FNF?

    You should be able to connect them to a Bone controller, it may need an adapter if it's an old one - "Older Xbox 1 controllers require a stereo adapter. New Xbox 1 controllers should have a 3.5mm port immediately available."

    @Nina correct, cans plus modmic plus y splitter plus controller (bone or ps) will work, but if you want better sound aye, output to cans from external amp of some kind and keep mic attached to controller.

  • I've never tried connecting headphones directly to a controller, so I couldn't comment on what the quality would be like. It's supposed to work so I guess it would, might just have some extra noise and stuff.

    Yeah it wouldn't be flash, but useable certainly.

    I will use this thread to speak of the great challenge of not spending 1k+ on new cans, I burden I bear anew each day.

    Fuck I really want these ones though, never picked me up then they got discontinued then I spotted some secondhand and erk

    Moot knows my pain

    @Skerret, thanks. Should have looked at the website before asking, it's not really that much what they're offering (couple of different modmics and accessoires). 

    I'll see what B thinks of this, it's a bit more expensive than I thought I wanted to spend (but that was when I  was still thinking cheap headset) so I'd have to go for the modmic 4 without mute and an Y adapter. At least shipping is free, and you can always improve the set by getting that amp or getting new cans. (b doesn't have the ohms you mentioned, he has the wrong ones as he thought he'd get an amp for it at some point, never did though. Could still play for enough hours with the headphones connected without really draining the battery. )
  • If you spent 1k on cans you'd be saving money in the long run.  You'd never need another pair for starters.

    I know but then there are the 2k cans, then the 3k cans, then the 6k cans, then the 7k cans, then the HE1 and the Shangri La but it's them or a house and while it's a close run thing having somewhere to wee takes precedence. Damn if the ZMF Auteurs don't look like a set to end all sets though.

    @Nina agreed the plus is definitely that you can always upgrade the headphones and reattach the mic rather than trashing the lot. Aye probably the 32Ohm ones then, them and the AD900X, HD600 and AKG 7XX round out the attainable good-for-gaming cans.

    I might try out my tube amp and the HD650s with Dark Souls 3 tonight, wahoo boys night in.

    You're supposed to pretend I'm right and buy them, you're rubbish at this.  Buy a 4k set!  That way you can have a wee safe in the knowledge that the least sensible decision was miles away from wot you dun.

    That said though if you choose carefully the right cans hold their value. I could resell the HE500s for near enough to what I paid for them

    He's better off with the 555s and a ModMic. So long as they don't crack on his massive head. Their headbands are a known downside.
  • Perhaps, but it's a very decent plug and play option without an extraneous box.
    retroking1981: Fuck this place I'm off to the pub.
  • Hair, those do actually look like they might fit the bill.

    Gurt (and Skrote), thanks for the help and the generous offer but it does sound a wee bit fiddly, and the possibility of needing a further adaptor to connect to the bone controller is a concern.  Apologies for keeping you hanging on in the meantime.
  • And they are now ordered.
  • Gurt, want me to see if I can shift the Sennheisers at work?  I'm tempted myself, to try open back cans, but realise it's a bit silly to have two pairs of good headphones at home *COUGH SKERRET*.  I've got a colleague looking to spend big on bigcans, I might be able to convince him not to bother.  Plus I'd get you to send them to me so I can test them for hours first.

    So after all of Skezza’s advice you went and bought a gaming headset?

    Heh.
    Don't prepare for appointment.
  • What a moran.
