Will this work with the ADV. nsmo 3D triple-driver gaming iem's mic? It may be a stupid question, since I don't know if iems need that much power in the first place, but I wanted to know if the connected mic still works if they are plugged into this.

pretty sure it would need to be a 3 pole connector to have mic passthrough but I'm not an expert on 3.5 combo connectors

I generally find video reviews helpful, but while the first one was just barely tolerable, when I clicked on the second one and heard: "What's up...this is your boy..." I knew I'd seen enough!

Hi, can someone please confirm if the cables are braided or not? I am seeing different types in the photos. Has the item also been updated? There are people complaining about the buttons being difficult to press.

Hello, yes the cables are braided and some of the comments on the button's being a little sticky were only in early production runs on a handful of units. With any new product release there are a few tweaks to work out in manufacturing which have been done thus the buttons all work very well.

With this device depending solely on a 3.5mm input, it seems kind of pointless. If your 3.5mm output sounds like crap, a AAA won't make it sound any better, just no worse. I guess I'll just stick to the output of my LG G7.

You are right in that if you have a bad source this will deliver bad sound. If you have a good source (like your LG) the THX amp won’t mess up the sound through another amp stage, you will get more power, and the ability to boost the bass. I have this and an LG v30 and this device really is not bad out of the LG, or my iPad. But, given the future - or lack thereof - of 3.5mm output jacks, this is a purchase with likely a short useful lifespan...

Will this amp drive the 6xx headphones?

I wonder how well it will work when combined with a dac like a cobalt. Ill be interested in getting feedback on that. I have a cobalt and it might be worth using both, but only of they work well together.
I'm not sure why you would have a need for this if you have a cobalt, similar power specs into 32 ohms. Are you interested just because it has THX modules? FYI the mobile modules are not the same level of performance as the 788 or 888 modules you find in desktop amps. Will it work, most certainly, is there any reason... not that I can see.
FWIW - I've had the good fortune of using the DB12 AAAMP with some HELM DAC prototypes and if you listen to your headphones at "decent" volumes (I don't want to encourage hearing loss but some of us are well on the way to that destination regardless) the DB12 AAAMP has plenty of power and the whole THX AAA zero-distortion technology is something to behold. I don't believe that the experience would be much different with a competitor's DAC. If you like it mobile, loud, and crystal clear, the DB12 AAAMP delivers the goods.

Awful looking which it’d be more metal like instead of plastic looking.
More metal or "more cowbell?" (Sorry, couldn't resist.) I've attached a couple of shots here so the finish is a little more visible.

Thanks Drew yep cowbell would have been more appropriate, at least it talks the talk walks the walk and on top of it, calls you back to the barn when done listening, can’t wait to stick it between my ear and my neck 👍🎶🤑 Did I mention how visible the large audio control signs are, hard to miss even without glasses, thank you for saving our eyes but touch sensitive instead of ink sensitive would have saved our music browsing from insanity. Other than that might be worth the price as long as you hide it from other cows.

Is there something like this that has will also pass-through a 4-pole microphone signal?
We've had a lot of success with Xbox, PS4 has some wrinkles. Make sure you check out the Xbox's "hidden" controller audio menu for headsets.

“Hidden” you say? I’m fully intrigued. I thought I knew everything there was to know about these things.
