Howdy CL,

Afternoon Big,

Did you have the newer Game Zeros's not the G4ME Zeros?

if you have the newer Game Zeros then we can source new pads and cables locally for you :)

In regards to sounds cards, I would recommend moving to an external card to avoid any internal interference caused by your pc.

A good starting USB DAC and Amplifier would be the E10k https://www.computerloun...entview.asp?partid=23372
GA-Z97MX-Gaming 5
4790k @ 4.8Ghz
16GB HyperX @ 2400Mhz
860 Evo 500GB + 4TB HHD & 6TB HDD
GTX 1080ti Strix
S340 Elite Hyperbeast

thnx for the help.. I have the older G4ME ZERO ones.. I did notice the newer ones have the removable cord.. and i was hoping that there was a way.. nothing wrong with them at the moment just looking for fix's if it happens..and the Dac you mentioned.. would I need a sound card to drive it or is it a usd aio type thing.. not up to speed on dacs..lol

I was looking at https://www.computerloun...entview.asp?partid=30282 as it seems to be a great model and has good reviews .. thoughts ?

Morning Big,

The G4ME Zero's do not have replacement cables and would have to be opened up and manually soldered/ attached if they were to get damaged.

The JDS Labs Amp/Dac you linked is a substantially better Amp/Dac and can run 600Ohm headphones whereas the E10k can do 150-200 comfortably which leaves you a fair bit of future proofing if you were to ever purchase higher end headphones with higher impedance.

If you have the budget for the JDs there's no reason to consider the E10k in my opinion, both are sent audio via USB, the E10k is also USB powered whereas the JDS has an AC adapter, the JDS can also have an 3.5mm input which is a bonus.
