[QUOTE=hoot37;34741948]I hadn't really read about the DSS but I can only assume that it wont be as good as the Fiio E10, many say that for £60 it's the best within the £100 price range, so that may be an option.[/QUOTE] The E10 can't fix headphones being shit.
[QUOTE=DarkCarnage;34674846]Agreed :v:[/QUOTE] There is a button for that...
[QUOTE=David Tennant;34745241]A FiiO E10 really won't give him much, he'd be better off using the money for new headphones, the FiiO E10 just compliments already good headphones.[/QUOTE] I still think he's better off optimizing his current setup and seeing how it sounds. Then, if he's still unhappy, he can identify what he thinks he needs more off(bigger soundstage, more bass, etc). It's possible he's got something hooked up wrong and once he fixes it he might be happy with his current headset.

[QUOTE=Neckername;34736619]Well I think you can weed out the idiots/trolls that do not know about audio in this thread. Turtle beach has a decent line of headsets. The X11 series is decent if you want basic stereo and a mic, with a comfortable fit. Other than that, sound quality can differ. When you ask "what can you do to get better quality", that is a very broad statement. What did you expect vs. what you actually got? Did you want more bass? Better decibel range? Better frequencies? Did you think that there would be reduced background noise? I don't know what's wrong with your experience as I am not in your shoes. If it is a volume problem, you can do a lot of amazing things with third party software, as well as drivers.[/QUOTE] There is quite a difference between a self-proclaimed audiophile just because he has a 123 dollar headphone and someone who knows his audio from the inside out. You fit right in the former category.

My little brother constantly talks about audio as if he knows everything about it while in fact the only thing he knows is that bass goes boom. He reminds me of that guy up there.
Asks a question. Just gets a bunch of trolls who try to show their facepunch dominance with their extreme knowledge of nothing important... with maybe 3-4 good answers mixed in there. THANKS EVERYBODY!

[QUOTE=David Tennant;34947019]All you can do is use an equalizer, other than that, buy new headphones.[/QUOTE] Alright, thank you. That's all that was needed. None of this "Go buy a real pair of headphones, not a children's toy." junk. I don't have the money for a pair of headphones better than my current ones, and I don't really want to mess with an equalizer, so I'm just going to say the sound is as good as it gets.
Use these equalizer settings, they'll tame the bass a bit, de-muddy the lower and middle mids, treble should roll off a little better. [img]http://puu.sh/j2Fo[/img]

Besides from that the only thing you can do is use an equalizer.
I've got an X12 and it gets the job done. I'm not an audophile and I won't pretend to be; I have a good 2.1 setup to listen to music and use the headset for gaming. As said above if you tweak the EQ you can make it sound a little better, but I only adjust it for games since I don't listen to music with it.
