game zero and static what is needed to properly setup for gaming

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i bought a pair of game zeros and i plugged them into my astro mixamp pro and when i turn up the volume it get static and its not turned up all the way. I was wondering if i needed to add something or fix something that would make the headset work porperly.

i just disconnected it from the mixamp and plugged it into the front of the pc and even with the volume all the way down there it static ....tho its not much its still there and i heard some talk about dacs and amps and wasnt to clear on whether i needed one

Noise is expected, however it seems like you have a bit more than normal if you hear it when the volume is down. Did you try plugging your headphone into the back of the PC?
