Barely sounds different than what's on most gaming headsets. Most motherboards don't have good shielding or power output so you'll need an external soundcard (around $10-15) to make the mic even audible. And the dang thing keeps falling off. You barely touch it or pull the wire and it falls off thanks to it's magnetic attachment system. I got the Roccat Juke external card and it comes with XEar software that is supposedly really good. It helped the mic and added some cool Virtual Surround Sound for the headphones. I've tried it in CS:GO. Can't say for sure if it's better than gaming headphone software, but it definitely adds detail and makes it easy to pinpoint where shots are coming from. If there's one positive I can say about the mic is that since it's detachable I can now take it off and put it directly in front of my arse so my opponents can get the full effect of my farts.
I spent probably the 1st week using this thing just trying to get it to audible levels. I kept trying to ask players what did they think, could they hear me now? Was it better, worse? I guess most gamers are selfish bastards because they kept saying Shut up, we're in a match.
So if you combine this with the $40 entry level headphones now you've got a $110 headset that is supposed to "stick it" to the big gaming companies. Except that it doesn't. It's not wireless, the mic is decent at best, it's extremely uncomfortable, it doesn't have any gaming features (like easy way to mute/unmute mic), and it's not a 1 step install. Which if you're looking for a great gaming headset, quite a few people will try to point you toward this route and it's just such a pain. And I think everyone that reviews headphones must be getting paid every time they say the word "sound stage."
I will give this some more testing and will update my review should it warrant.
- The adapter can be placed on any pair of headphones. It even comes with additional magnetic holders to the microphone can be attached to multiple devices
- It came with a carrying case and wire clips to try and keep everything neat and untangled
- It works
- The microphone wire is LONG. It's easily twice the length of my Audio Technica's. This isn't necessarily a deal breaker, but the rest of the wire was wrapped up underneath the PS4 controller.
- It uses a plastic mic arm instead of a metal one many headsets, including my old pair of Turtle Beach's, use. Trying to adjust the mic with one hand is incredibly awkward, so often times, I had to put my controller down to fix.
- My friends recognized that voice was different. They reported that my voice sounded "hollow" and "distant" and they preferred my voice from the TB's instead. So sound quality was not there.
- There was at least a half-second delay between what I said in the mic and what I heard from the headphones. This may not seem to be a big deal, but hear me out: my Audio Technica's are noise isolating, so I can't hear anything outside the headphones. This includes my own voice. So talking and hearing my muffled voice is very odd. My TB's would compensate by having my own voice come through the headset, but nowhere on my Audio Technica's, Antlion mic, nor PS4 gives me this option. Considering that there's an incredibly distracting voice lag (which I hear testing the mic level), I wouldn't want to talk anyway.
The biggest problem isn't the adapter's fault, but it's still present: you have to control all volume through the PS4 rather than on a gaming headset (like you can with virtually any one). Sometimes, however, this doesn't work well enough. You cannot control the volume of other people's voice on the headphones. On the PS4, you can only lower it a bit, but it's still too loud when you're trying to pay attention to a game you're playing alone.
In conclusion, this microphone worked. Despite it's (and the PS4's and Audio Technica's) limitations, the voice delay is the biggest deal breaker. If I could hear my own voice, I wouldn't want to. The Sennheiser adapter was not the problem since I heard no audio delays from the game or use of other mic attachments. I would understand if this wasn't intended to be used for the PS4, but it was specifically advertised to work both here and on Antlion's website. The Antlion and Sennheiser adapters cost $75 total. With that, you can get an actual decent and functional gaming headset.
This attaches magnetically to the side of your headphones. I get lots of complements on how clear my voice is in-game. Highly recommend!
;tldr: ModMic is awesome! great sound quality.
