Oct 18, Posts: Supposedly, allows for a slightly different sound signature, or maybe an improvement, depending on what the existing one is and the one you’d replace it with. Rroff Man of Honour Joined: Sep 3, Posts: You’ll get headphones that have low ohm but horrendous current requirements to get any kind of decent sound out of them and vice versa like the HD series that don’t require much current but sound incredibly muddy if you don’t have enough voltage swing even when the amp has the on paper power figures to support them.
If you are using Windows 10, then there’s built in sound EQ, which you could use to tweak the sound a bit for more lower bass.
Jan 24, at 2: You will also find some op amps better suited to loads that require fast voltage changes and others better for driving current heavy loads.
I thought you might have been talking about the original PC in the OP, but as you don’t have that already, must be the SE; which is an improvement on the first Dec 9, Posts: Rroff would be a good person to ask if the OP wants to know more about that. They arrived yesterday my first chance today to try them out have them connected through the soundcard with SBX pro studio.
When it comes to op amps for example, the difference are likely to be subtle, if any at all. Many parts make up what brow might call a headphone amp, op-amp is the part responsible for amplifying the signal.
Do you already have an account? Screwing up the sound in games should be much less noticeable when elevating ops2134 bass. That’s why direct AB testing exists. That is always the problem with headphone amplifiers – I did edit the above to add in approx.
Jan 24, at Assuming the OPA was directly driving the headphone – at loud volume levels the PC only require around mW to drive them while in most audio configurations the op amp can output atleast mW. Jan 26, at Could be to do with a setting in game audio or maybe the sound card or device?
My bad, I meant Rroff! Any ideas why they sound “weaker” in games? Of course, none of this really matter here, because we are talking about a Ohm headset, which I’m sure is quite easy to drive in comparison to the K, despite having an Ohm rating that is more than twice as much. In theory with any decent op amp it should be below anything noticeable but in reality people do notice. Jan 24, at 3: May 7, Posts: That’s the only real area where the HyperX headsets could be better really.
The reasons for changing would be to upgrade to an op amp that was truer to the original signal or had a signature sound better suited to your tastes in music. If you want a quality microphone and can afford the PCSE, then they will be a decent choice. Some people are suggesting that as a beginner It would be better for me to start with say the HyperX cloud II as they come with the in line DAC with pre-set 7.
The OPA isn’t a bad choice, its designed for audio, doesn’t do anything unexpected and largely produces a very accurate sound but does have the signature “burr-brown” slightly thick and lazy signature and personally I think it is a bit like a musician playing the same tune for the th time – accurate but no longer involved in the music quite the same as the first few times.
Anyway; the PC SE, is a very good headset. Thanks for the input I’m just starting with the audio side of things. One thing you could try: Richard William Associate Joined: Also in the Windows sound control panel do you have it set to mute or lower volume on applications in the communications tab as this can play funny with some games.

Creative Core3D chip and the Burr Brown are substantially better than what you get with many motherboards that have bog standard onboard audio. Log in or Sign up.
The headphone amplifier is rated for upto ohm headphones – I’ve not looked into it but I suspect it uses another IC for the headphone driver and the OPA feeds into that.
Burr Brown® OPA2134 vs R4580
Tried them in game first off they are good but had lpa2134 use full volume the base sounded a little “weak” if that makes sense. I don’t know to be honest. If this is entry level gear what does Pro level equipment sound like. Jan 29, at 5: No, create an account now. Do you have them plugged into the back or the frontpanel audio socket?
