Burr Brown

Jan 24, at If you want a quality microphone nurr can afford the PCSE, then they will be a decent choice. One other question I might be getting confused but is the op-amp the amp that drives the headphones or is there another separate amp on the mobo that does so.?

Rroff Man of Honour Joined: 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 say supposedly, because it’s not like replacing headphones or speakers where the differences are much more noticeable. By the brwon the op amp has been changed, so much time has passed, people are remembering what they thought the previous buurr amp sounded like.

Tried them in game first off they are good but had to use full volume the base sounded a little “weak” if that makes sense.


There are other factors as well such as some op amps use crude “boosters” to achieve high slew rates how fast the op amp can react to a change in the signal voltage level which can result in a raw sound versus often people saying those with a more advanced approach sounding smoother. Sep 3, Posts: Do you have them plugged into the back or the frontpanel audio socket?

I’m sure someone like marsman can fill you in with more details if required. Jan 26, at 8: Anyway; the PC SE, is a very good headset. Jan 29, at 4: My bad, I meant Rroff!

In theory with any beown op amp it should be below anything noticeable but bure reality people do notice. Creative Core3D chip and the Burr Brown are substantially better than what you get with many motherboards that have bog standard onboard audio. Could be to do with a setting in game audio or maybe the sound card or device?

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. That’s why direct AB testing exists.

Creative once claimed their SB Z, could power Ohm headphones, yet falls well short of doing the K any real justice. When it comes to opaa2134 amps for example, the difference are likely to be subtle, if any at all.

Almost any electronics device in an analogue signal path will induce some noise and distortion into the signal and op amps are no exception – different designs and manufacturing approaches can vary how that manifests in an audio signal and hence how an op amp “sounds” plus while no means a rule more expensive op amps tend to have lower levels of noise and distortion.

Any ideas why they sound “weaker” in games? Yes, my password is: I should think so. 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 this is entry level gear what does Pro level equipment sound like.


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. Thanks for the input I’m just starting with the audio side of things. Log in or Sign up. No, create an account now. Sennheiser’s microphones are very good indeed. That is always the problem with headphone amplifiers – I did edit the above to add in approx.

I brlwn know that much I’m afraid when it comes to internal workings of amplifiers, other than what you’ve already said about op amps.

Jan 24, at 9: That’s the only real area where the HyperX headsets could be better really. 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. Many parts make up what you might call a headphone amp, op-amp is the part responsible for amplifying the signal. Jan 24, at 4: Jan 24, at 2: There’s one thing which people hardly factor in when changing an op amp and deciding it’s better than the last one, and that’s human memory is poor when it when it comes to remember intricate sound details.
