Does the microphone work if you just plug them in to the headphones and not also a source? I want to game wirelessly, so I'd like to have a bluetooth headset that transmits my voice to my computer wirelessly.
From what I understand, no. Likely anything plugged into the analog jack on the Panda disables the internal electronics, and I doubt that jack supports combo mic/L/R for what you're describing (aka not TRRS, instead probably TRS for audio in like all headphones). The boom mic is essentially Drop's version of something like a V-Moda BoomPro. Someone correct me if I'm wrong please!
For wireless gaming, the better solution would be a wireless Modmic or a condenser desk microphone and running the headphones aptx LL.
Something I do wonder for the Drop folks, is it possible to do a mic input through the USB-C jack to override the internal mics with a firmware update? That could be an easy way to produce a wireless boom microphone option for those running aptx LL without the absolute need for zero latency...
So i've been trying to couch game with my pc so I've gotta go all wireless. But this is insightful thank you! Ended up getting some corsair headset.
Writing/correcting here just incase anyone is passing by, not relevant to this conversation... These almost certainly do not support aptX LL, but instead aptX adaptive with low-latency capabilities of 50-80ms. Get aptX adaptive adapters for your computers, NOT aptX LL adapters.
