Astro A10 sounds good for multiplayer sessions.

 

Though I suspect your Sennheiser would be much better at sound quality.

 

I use ear buds I got with my phone, for multiplayer. They are terrible. 

 

But I won't upgrade unless I get something that connects to usb port of my xbox. 

 

No point in having decent hps and plug them into controller to waste their potential.

 

I do have the X1 chat headset. Will give that a go.

XSX controller does a good job of driving heavier hps, much better than dualsense 

 

Controller has odds stacked against it as far as SQ is concerned. 

 

Small battery

Bluetooth

Unknown circuitry in small space

 

Any good battery powered dac-amp running in class A eats battery like nothing. 

 

In use I have used it with Dita Answer, an IEM of much higher quality. 

 

I noticed it lacks ambience, subtle details that makes the soundscape alive. Every instrument is separated by nothingness. 

 

On top it also sounds tinny, lacking in any real bass.

wowowow. What's the best hps and dac/amp setup you have heard?

 

anyway, I'll have xduoo xd05 basic in a few days

 

I'll be using Aux input from controller 3.5mm jack into xd05 and then into my hps, that should do the trick right?

 

because I've purchased dolby atmos for headphones license on XSX and that audio only comes thru 3.5mm on controller.

Absolute best would be this:

 

Sennheiser Orpheus 2: $60,000.

I thought you wanted xduoo for music listening. That is where it will shine best, connected to phone or laptop. Where you can appreciate all the fidelity.

 

Connecting it to controller will lead to double amping which normally doesn't improve sq. 

 

You might be able to use it with ps5 via usb port, feeding digital to xduoo.

 

With xbox, I dunno how it will perform connected to controller. I suggest you try it and see how you like it.

where, how and when did you get to hear Orpehus 2!!!?!

 

also, once I get my xd05, I’ll test out both xsx and ps5 controller audio streams for what kind of audio bit depth and sampling rates both are outputting from controller 3.5mm jack. It’ll show up in the display 

 

now, that’s true Xbox vs PS right there. Who will win the audio wars!! Will know is a day or two

 

I will primarily use the xd05 for Apple Music lossless streaming of course

“TOKYO and REDMOND, Wash. — May 16, 2019 — Sony Corporation (Sony) and Microsoft Corp. (Microsoft) announced on Thursday that the two companies will partner on new innovations to enhance customer experiences in their direct-to-consumer entertainment platforms and AI solutions.

Under the memorandum of understanding signed by the parties, the two companies will explore joint development of future cloud solutions in Microsoft Azure to support their respective game and content-streaming services. In addition, the two companies will explore the use of current Microsoft Azure datacenter-based solutions for Sony’s game and content-streaming services. By working together, the companies aim to deliver more enhanced entertainment experiences for their worldwide customers. These efforts will also include building better development platforms for the content creator community.“

Hmmmm…..that would be really great,no need to spend money on multiple devices whatsoever. :scratchchin:

 

Not that there was any need from 2012-2020 either.

Sennheiser does auditions of Orpheus 2 from time to time. Its travelling all the time worldwide.

 

It was in one of the hotels near airport in Gurgaon. 

 

Audio coming out of controller is analog. Bit depth and sampling rates it will show won't be accurate.

 

You need digital signal for that from usb or one of the optical ports from old consoles.

 

Anything that drives wired headphones like controller has analog output. Wired hps don't have dac amp inside them (unlike wireless hps which accept digital). 

 

Connect xduoo to ps5 usb port for best quality. You can't do that with xbox as they require licensed products.

Ya but sony is a major competitor and sega a 3rd party publisher ,there is a difference there. Azure services in return for titles on Gp is very much a possibility ,eventually the main goal is for the games to reach maximum crowd.

 

Anyways all assumptions ,could be anything so a partnership is good sign .🤞

Totally unrelated business. 

Amzon has been selling cloud infrastructure for years now…..doesn’t mean every developer or publishing house who has been leasing their infrastructure would start trading putting games on Luna Subscription day 1. 
 

Tmrw one can say Sony would wave off royalties of third party & let them use their most popular proprietary hardware for free & instead ask games to be released on PSplus or PSnow day1. 
 

Totally baseless assumption. 
 

But ppl on internet have this habit of putting everything on GamesPass day 1 & spread hype.

Have they signed some sort of an exclusivity deal?

 


Just an MOU that in future if ever need be they will lease M$’s Azure based cloud infrastructure for their games. 
 

Many developers & publishing houses have signed these in the past including Sony. 
 

Has no relation whatsoever with the Xbox division.

Something similar.


Earlier it was a console, and now the cloud.
