I think I figured out why I can't hear anything.

I think normal gaming headsets are about half the impedance of my headphones. I may need an amplifer to power these headphones so I can hear things better...

 

What impedance are your headphones?

If you really want to know, my astros have 48ohms. But if you are wanting to know the way to hear footstep sounds then it's frequency you are wanting which is 20 - 24,000Hz for mine, with Tournament Ready Amp that comes with, brings it to 10Hz - 24,000Hz

Oh you have a gaming headset? I just have some T50RP's I bought in college. I mean I could try DT770's, but at 80 ohms I don't think it'd do better without an amp.

 

Here's T50RP. I have either MK1 or MK2, with alpha pads: https://www.innerfid...sAlphaPrime.jpg

 

Here's the DT770: _HDM-X_-_90_20-20k_-_fr_impedance.png' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>http://reference-aud...r_impedance.png

I was thinking getting these ones later down the road. https://en-us.sennhe...-audio-hd-800-s with 150ohms, 10 - 41,000HZ

Here's the Astro A50's for comparison: https://www.rtings.c...ponse-graph.png

 

I just read up on literature because I haven't been in the headphone game for a while. Supposedly you don't need one sub 60 ohms, but from my experience while the sound quality is great, things are definitely noticeably quieter with my T50RPs. I should try plugging in a pair of earbuds as a test.

I would say do it. My friend let me borrow a pair of HD800s for two weeks. I almost went out and bought a pair. In fact, I almost bought the mass drop HD-6XX's... except I have too many headphones as it is. Also, the T50RP's are great becaues I don't need to stick a mic on, I can just get (and did get) a v-moda boom mic.

The reason I was looking into this was because I was playing AAPG, and someone on my team kept saying "behind you, behind you". I didn't hear a thing. I turned anyway, and shot the guy dead. There's a map I absolutely /hate/ (breach?) because there are people who know exactly where you are all the time and shoot you through walls...

i really noticed a huge difference in game play and sounds when I purchased my astros A40's .  In aapg sound is key.  I have not been dissapopinted with astros, actually going to get a new pair in the very near future so i can get the mix amp with it this time.

I personally use the Turtle Beach Stealth 450's. They are pretty sweet for my budget.
