XDefiant. And the gameís development has gone radio silent since September. Iím looking forward to it as well. Canít see it being a CoD Killer though.

but its fun when paying with friends.
Isnít this true for all games though?

Hey, no need for that! He was only expressing his opinion.
And I agree that CoDís MP franchise is in a bad place now. Activision has put so much emphasis on making sure that n00bs get kills that it has taken too much of the skill (and fun) away from seasoned players: sbmm, poor map design, OP weapons, bloom, badly thought out challenges, poor player progression, lacklustre kill streaks, unrewarding objective play, etc. etc.).

I gave the free weekend a go. And although I felt it was much better than MW 2019 (the worst CoD ever made, IMO) it was nowhere near as engrossing or entertaining as the OG CoDs, or even the jet pack iterations (which I also enjoyed).
Unfortunately, until peeps stop buying the game (or another Dev (Respawn?) comes up with a CoD challenger) weíre going to keep getting the same type of game each year. One that I really donít like and wonít be buying).

So to return to the OPís question, I donít understand either. CoD has become a watered-down, soulless shadow of itís former self and Iím not optimistic about its future, either.

The recommended 3.2 ADS setting was too jerky for me. I've changed it back to the default 1.0.

PC38X were overhyped, I was dissappointed too, but my bar is too high anyways when coming from studio Hi-Fi cans.

If you don't mind cable mess best option is to use a Headphone Amp between controller and HD560S and external mic like modmic back to the controller (Y Mic/Headphone Splitter).

If you only want a good headset, IMO ATH-ADG1X is the best out there for a nice open back, great imaging and soundstage gaming headset.

Is a entry Hi-Fi airy headphone turn into a headset. You can drive it from the controller easily, pairing it with a DAC/Amp improves its performance.

Here proof that I have tried them, sorry @#$% blurry camera.

I'll second the G1Xs. I reviewed them in AMGs mega thread, here.
You'll get better spacial awareness with a proper audiophile headset and amp though.

Thatís right. No shenanigans required with the Series X. You just need to run the Beta software.

Hi ceebs,

It is like a hum or buzz?, it might be a ground issue, quite common when you are putting together two devices with different outles.

It may be fix with a ground loop insolator: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001EAQTRI/

It goes between the RCA 3.5mm male and the Headphone input.

Honestly iFi Zen CAN will be the best upgrade.
That helped. Thanks bud.

If somebody thinks you're using a XIM and criticises you for it, educate them.
If they say you're cheating, point out that your device isn't banned under either Sony or Microsoft's ToS and so you're just using the input device that you're most comfortable with.
If they insult for using it, f*** 'em!

XIM APEX Discussions / Re: XB Series X or PS5?
« on: 07:48 AM - 10/27/21 »
Iím very happy with my XSX. I bought it rather than the PS5 as I knew all CoDs will play with the Apex, on it. I still have my PS4 Pro and a PC with a GTX 2070 in it, so I feel as though I have all the bases covered.
If youíre in Europe, I got mine from Amazon Germany.

Did you change any cables in your X7 setup? Bundling any audio cables with power cables? What input & output are you using?
I unplugged everything a few weeks ago when I replaced my gaming desk and the problem started when I reconnected, but all the cables are the same. I've swapped out all the 5v power packs to see if I plugged in the wrong one, but that didn't fix it.
I can only think that I damaged the X7 when I moved it.

Feels great on the Series X. Thanks Mist.

Snappy turning! Who'd a thought it? It's just a shame that the game didn't ship with these movement features, two years ago!

I need to bin my SB X7 as I'm getting interference (a low buzzing/hum) no matter where I position it or which socket it's plugged into. I'm suspecting a loose internal connection.

I'm thinking of getting the Fiio K5 Pro, as I can connect my PS4 (optical), PC (USB) and Series X (RCA) to it, all at the same time.

In your opinion, is there much difference in sound quality between the iFi ZEN CAN and the Fiio K5 Pro?

If I remember right, you can use SB X7 RCA Audio In with a Y RCA L/R to 3.5mm adapter to keep using its built-in amplifier.
  ??? Sorry, but this went right over my head. Any chance you could explain what you mean to somebody that knows nothing about audio equipment (me)?
Sorry for the late reply.


Headphone to SB X7.  ;)
Thanks Alan.
Yes, it does work but I’m picking up interferance (from the Apex and something else, that I can’t isolate). Think I’ll just get the Zen Can.

Me too, but aiming isnít good. Iíve tried a few generic STs as well but the dead zone is just janky. Hoping Mist can pull off his magic again.

Any chance of an ETA for Far Cry 6, please Mist?
