As I mentioned in my last blog post I had done quite a bit of research on headphones. This brand kept cropping up Mayflower electronics. Best DAC at this price point you can do no better. If you want to save even more money you can build it yourself if you know how to solder.
We went with Objective2 and ODAC Rev. B DAC & Amplifier handmade by Mayflower electronics in the USA.
This takes all of the sound out of the computer and puts it in your headphones from USB cable it is beautifully simplistic. The sound that comes out of this compared to what comes out of your sound card is incredibly different in the best possible way. There is also no added nonsense so you hear the games the way the game developers meant for you to hear them.
So if you have a good set of headphones or a very premium gaming headset you should really get one of these. It also has no drivers to speak of so you won’t have to worry about updating the drivers if your operating system changes.
Good old Creative Labs has not put out an updated driver for Windows 10 for quite a few of the old cards and only one driver since Windows 10 came out no updates whatsoever. Which is pretty surprising considering how many driver updates we get for video cards.
If you are looking to get some headphones like the AKG K712 Pro they won’t really function correctly without a DAC. I would highly recommend this brand very prompt shipment only took about three days and we’re in California and they are in New York.
