5 out of 5 eggsA Film Watchers Perspective

Pros: Perfect 5.1 Surround Reproduction.

Cons: Proprietary Optical Audio Cable (~8' long)

Other Thoughts: Wow.

I found this while searching for a device that would allow me to listen to Blu-ray films through headphones. My current apartment prevents me from running my surround setup at night. Given that this is mainly advertised as a gaming device I did not expect the highest quality sound.

Needless to say it has exceeded all my expectations and then some. The entire sound field is perfectly mixed with great surround simulation. Ran Scott Pilgrim, Drive, Akira, & District 9 to test and every moment sounds FLAWLESS. Dialog is clean and clear, with crystal clear highs, midrange, lows, and great bass. Highly Recommended!

3 things to note.
-The Optical audio cable packaged with it must be used, as it has a unique end to attach to the mixer. Thankfully the cable is relatively long.
-7.1 content seems to mix more heavily in the rear/side, though this may be the PS3 and not the mixer.
-Near the very very low end of the volume, individual channels start lowering at an uneven rate in 5.1 mode.

***Make sure you have a great set of studio headphones to get the most out of it!***

5 out of 5 eggsSeriously Awesome

Pros: Really incredible device plug almost any pair of headphones through this and they'll noticeably sound better. Have had the 2011 and 2013 versions of the MixAmp, really incredible device.

Cons: Can't be. :)

Other Thoughts: Recently found out you can talk to your friends on Xbox while using it on the PC, Only device i know out there that lets you do this, but remember you have to use the Astro Headset for this to work, you can't just use any headset with it. Also since any pair of headphones will work with this you can hook up your audiophile grade phones and play xbox with them, obviously you cant talk to anyone but it's awesome to hear the explosions in any game with your favorite pair of phones.

5 out of 5 eggsNice improvement

Pros: Nice directional sound improvement with its build in EQ. Pro-mode (top left had corner light) provides excellent directional audio especially enemy footsteps. I've had the 2012 model without the EQ and surprisingly, this is quite the upgrade.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use this on a Xbox 360 mainly playing BF3. I have 10 hours online with this mixamp and love the fact that I can hear sneaky people trying to take my dog-tags. Lots of hate mail claiming I'm cheating. Well done Astro :)

5 out of 5 eggsAmazong sound

Pros: Hi quality sound, great software encoding to mimic surround, and really brings out the sound quality on a good pair of headphones.

Cons: Lack of info in package about setup.

Other Thoughts: I set this up on my PC running windows 8. In testing I at first thought it was not working and sound was still running in my surround speakers. When I realized the sound was to clear for my speakers, I took the headset off. Works so well I actually thought the sound was coming from behind me. I purchased some audio Technia ath-m50 studio monitor headphones, paired with a modmic for voice chat when needed. The sound on a good quality pair of head phones is amazing.

For those of you wondering, the MixAmp 2013 turns a pair of 2 channel headphones into a 7.1 surround system. The better the quality of headphones the better it works. I can "feel" the bass from the deep sounds and explosions, and I can tell what direction the sounds are coming from.

I would recomend this mixamp to anyone, however it will work better with a higher quality set of headphones than those that astro makes. Get the mix amp, not the headset.

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost but not quite

Pros: When working with a compatible headset the Mixamp performs amazing.
The sounds were never distorted even when maxed.
When set in FPS mode it made footsteps noticeably louder.

Cons: optical audio cable has a unique connection on the mixamp side so you have to use the one provided.
The length of cable for providing Xbox communication is very short.

Other Thoughts: I use Turtle beach x12 headset and because both the headset and the mixamp require USB to power them it would produce a feedback sound that could not be overlooked.
