Awesome!, no problem  ;)

I think I found Emperor Potara latest EQ for Clouds 2 and Revolver: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1wqoKRrRKBXUFB4cN9SBQJZ0ExD4zczBc

Answering those who asked me: what is my current Setup?.

I'm using the Mayflower ARC MK2 with Beyerdynamics DT990Pro for competitive gaming, for casual inmersion I went back to my Hifiman HE-4XX.

I'm using the Mayflower ARC on Optical mode, my microphone is a sE V7 dynamic XLR microphone connected to the Shure MVi USB Interface connected to my console, its headphone output goes to the back of the ARC Audio In, this allows me can hear party chat+my voice and control/mix its volume with the game audio that comes from the optical input, this way I have Hi-Res Audio quality and a professional microphone quality for vocals.

MVi offers EQ presets, one specific for speech that increase clarity and presence, couldn't be happier.

I can stream from my console using a pro XLR microphone with a supercardioid pattern, which is made for singing surrounded by instruments and only picks your voice, this means it doesn't pick up background noise at all, no matter how hard I smash my keys (blues switches) my friends doesn't hear a thing.

Try different headphones, ones with lower impedance. If your sound is low, then something is off with your amp.

Hi Alan,

Do you think the Fosi Q4 is a good pairing with the DT990 Pros (80 ohms)? Its currently on sale on drop, so I'm curious to pick it up. I also have the Sennheiser 599 and the PXC 550-II (wired mode lol). It will be my first DAC/AMP combo. Do I need anything else to connect to a Xbox One X/Series X?

It goes to the gamepad, you need a Y splitter that separates Mic and Headphone output, connect the Mic on the Mic Input.
.

I'm not sure if works directly on the controller like on PS or you need the Xbox Headset Adapter
.

I don't own a XB, others might confirm this.

Iím on series X , akg K702 ,modmic, Fiio A3 ( ek11) amplifier, mixamp pro tr, and hdmi extractor to spdif , i can confirm that the Y cable work on my mix amp, so i think it could be the same with a controller , knowing that the most recent controllers have a jack, no need for an headset adapter

Good afternoon, help me connect a microphone (Audio-Technica ATGM 2) to the xbox elite series 2 gamepad, I ONLY NEED A MICROPHONE!  WHAT WOULD HE EARN !!!!  The headphones themselves are connected to an amplifier and a sound card from jds.  * the microphone comes with a proprietary adapter, the 4-pin one is working, but it separates the sound for the microphone and the headphones, and this does not suit me, since I have to disconnect the headphones from the amplifier and connect to this adapter so that the microphone and headphones work in pairs!  The 3-pin jack (THE CLEANEST MICROPHONE, WITHOUT AN ADAPTER) does not work as it is a 3-pin jack, and a 4-pin jack is required for the microphone to work!  Today they brought a small adapter, from a 3-pin to a 4-pin jack - but it turned out to be not working.  What should I buy next to make the microphone work?  There is an option to try to buy an audio adapter - from xbox (a box that is attached to the bottom) Are there any options how to solve my problem?  I think there are people here who have xboxes.  Help please, thanks;)

I found out the reason why the microphone does not work, the whole point is that for the microphone to work, you need a 4-pin jack.  (there should be three stripes on the jack).  Since connecting ordinary hypers with a wire + microphone (4-pin jack) everything works great.

you donít understand what I wrote .... The splitter is included with the microphone itself, but if you use it, then there will be no need to connect the headphones to the amplifier, since the wire from the headphones and the wire from the microphone will go to this splitter !!!!  I WILL REPEAT AGAIN, I HAVE EARS AND MICROPHONE GO EXCELLENT!  EARS GO TO AMPLIFIER WITH SOUND CARD, JDS.  A MICRRPHONE, ON THE WIRE GOES TO THE GAMEPAD!  BUT AS THERE IS A 3-PIN JACK IT DOESN'T WORK!  HOW TO MAKE IT EARN?  ADAPTERS FROM MICROSOFT DIDN'T HELP, ORDERED AN ADAPTER FROM AMASCHON (FROM 3PIN TO 4PIN) DID NOT HELP ..
