Thanks for the link and i'm aware that you can use usb to charge it (that is what i'm currently doing for power), i just heard that using a wall charger gives better results with the mixamp.
And about that charger... you can use any cell phone mini usb charger? Doesn't the voltage output have to be the same? Cell phones use lithium batteries, while the mixamp uses AA. I would think that the voltage output requirements are different.

I sometimes have to adjust it for guys with low Mic's but not drowned out. I usually have my chat just to the left of 12 O'clock and my game volume at around 12:30ish/1:00.
Is it like that throughout the game or does the chat volume drown out just during the loud bassier parts?
I'm liking the mixamp more, but i'm still not completely sold on it. The ability to lower the game volume independently of voice chat is nice (but not nearly as nice if they had independent voice amplification volume adjustment). I tested it out with Halo 3 and CoD:WaW (CoD4 has horrible audio quality; too compressed). CoD:WaW is the best i've heard for a console FPS.
The physical locations you have each dial knob set to, varies. What i mean is, no matter where you set the small knob for game volume decrease, the large master volume knob will be increased the same percentage difference to compensate. For example, if i set the small knob all the way left the larger master volume knob will be only turned up to about 11 o'clock. If you turn the small knob to center (12 o'clock) the master volume will have to increase to compensate for the reduced game volume to keep the game volume the same, and be increased up to 3 o'clock. These time locations will be different depending of how hard your headphones are to drive, but the the percentage differences should be the same.
I also noticed that i can hear better when i set the chat to both speaker and headset. When i have it just set to headset (as astro recommends), the sound quality is much worse, and harder to hear.
Another thing i noticed about the mixamp, is that it accentuates the mids more then my other DH units. This is good. But it feels like the soundstage has been dropped just a tad in the process.
I just noticed that the further you rotate the small chat knob to the right, the more of your voice feedback you get in your headphones.
For some reason the mixamp runs my DT880's fine now. There is no more distortion at loud volumes. Weird. I have to turn the volume to max, with the small know turned down to 9 or 10 O'Clock to get a sufficient sound lvl. Plus the buzzing has went away.
