    How to verify impedance being used?


    Perhaps I am asking the wrong question.
    Yesterday I switched from the open Sennheiser Game One to the Closed Game Zero. I see that the zeros require less ohms at 50 now at least. I love my ones but I'm unfortunately in a loud environment and closed is highly beneficial. I will keep my ones and perhaps use again at a later date

    I have an ASUS z170 Pro gaming with the Supremefx (Realtek ALC1150 ?) With the 300Ω-headphone amplifier built in. They sound very tinny and weak. I suspect they are being underdriven. I could swear I could set (or at least see) what the impedance was at one point. I'd like to verify (or better yet set) the impedance. When I plugged in headset, I got the pop up. I tried auto and well as selecting the headset over the earbuds.

    Windows 10 pro, 64 bit. I installed the latest ASUS drivers Version 6.0.1.7899 from 2016/08/23
    I've think I've looked every where and do not see it in the Realtek Audio Manager or in the windows settings.

    I started reading the stickys and may try them out. I see about the HDA vs the UAD. I hate to do all that and still not see/help impedance?

    Better yet, anyone already go through this with my same motherboard?

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Nokia's 5800 impedance (ohms)

    If the headphones impedance is lower than the 5800 XM impedance, the source (5800 XM) will tend to overheat and more power is used up in the 5800 XM than is delivered to the speaker.



    If the headphones impedance is higher than that of the 5800 XM, its power output will be less than it is capable of.



    Impedance mismatches result in:



    Poor tone quality of the sound

    Energy comsumption issues

    Overheating



    I am awaiting to hear back from Nokia and will be posting the info here as soon as I get it!

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
