only if you find a 1/8" female to mini xlr adapter or if you modified the connector on the headphones. imo its a waste of time trying to make that fit and I guess you could always just zip tie it to the side of the headphones connector and have 2 cables running down it.
Best choice is to get a stand alone desk mic like the blue snowball/yetti or you could get the modmic 4.0 which is made to be attached to headphones without any connectors but that down side of that is that you will have another cable to deal with, as my current setup (k7xx + modmic) its pretty bloody epic for games and voice chat.
Where did you place the ModMic magnet on the K7XX? Any pics? I have the ModMic 4.0 as well. Thinking of putting it either by the K7XX logo or lower on the grill by the cable connector.
I put mine on the right side in front of the driver/logo, I prefer having cables going down both sides rather than just one side as it feels more even, plus I can still flip the mic up or down without the driver getting in the way of it. Left side mics just bug me too much :P
does that help?
Thanks. If I place it on the outer grill it will be below and behind the Limited Edition logo. That puts the mic at the corner of my mouth.
You wouldn't want it behind the Limited edition logo, that's too far back (for me). you can always bend the boom down and back up to make it shorter and closer to your mouth if its too far forward.
I wouldn't place it there if the mic didn't reach my mouth. I think the default length from the mic to the bend may vary from set to set.
For example, in this picture (
)the magnet is placed behind the K7XX logo. I tried the same location with mine and the mic didn't reach my mouth.
That's possible they vary, I tried mine like the one in the pic, it doesn't reach either but it would reach if I loosened the clamp and shifted the boom forward.
I haven't applied the magnet. Still indecisive if I want to go with the modmic 4.0 or the v-moda boom pro. A member on head-fi is making adapters ($10 US) for sale for the AKG 'mini' XLR 3-pin jack. Cleaner setup than the modmic, but I'm not sure which is the better mic.
only thing about that adapter is it adds a bit of length to the connector right? I hope it doesn't get in the way of the shoulders when you turn your head. Besides you can always remove it and redo it if you need to.
I'd go with the modmic over the vmoda :)
The picture doesn't show it going to his mouth, it's just a weird perspective (the ModMic is stretched straight out and doesn't curve towards his face at all).
lol mine doesn't even reach when its straight, maybe its just my head.
so if i bought this http://www.amazon.com/Rode-VXLR-Adapter-VideoMic-Mini-Jack/dp/B000Y021NA it would work with the vmoda mic?
is that modmic 4.0 re-attachable? as in, can you keep putting it on and off repeatedly? my only concern is i want to be able to use the k7xx whiel traveling and at home listening to music and whatnot. the mic gets in the way if its not re-attachable. and if it is possible, would it lose its adhesivebility?
That adapter looks like a XLR and not a mini XLR? I dont think it will work.
Modmic has 2 parts to its mount, a magnetic base which attaches to the headphones and a magnetic clasp that holds the mic to the base, you can remove the modmic as much as you like and it won't wear down the magnets holding it unlike using some sort of adapter it won't break the connectors over time.
tbh those magnets will probably outlive you :P
It wouldn't work. that's male XLR and you need a female mini XLR connection to put into the headphones.
Not what I was saying. It's just straight, and doesn't reach nearly as far as it looks like it does in the picture. It's just a weird perspective to make it look longer.
