I wasn’t going to mention anything about audio but decided to anyhow. For good or bad only time will tell.
My problem with the audio quite frankly is mainly the volumn level or maybe my aging body and with that hearing. In addition my environment i will describe can be noisy, this summer with temp all month expected in the 90,s my airconditioner blower not far from my place space running continously and with my additional blower fan i use whenever dawning the hmd to provide additional comfort, I simply could not hear anything while in SkyrimVR and that was with all volumn sliders and settings 100%.
I decided to try head phones and they did work but I have always thought that the discomfort they add sometimes from the weight or mearly the problem of getting wires tangled to not use and instead have enjoyed my P8k with the Vive Das.
That led me to this mornings idea and question, can I use the DAS earphones and someway attach them to my new Pimax Vision 8kX?
I saw where someone had demonstrated that the smas speakers could be removed.
So I thought what the hell lets try it this morning. I can’t here in my circumstances now anyway. I’m also to impatient to wait for KD or DMAS, and i don’t mind tinkering a little bit.
Here are some pics and its not a permenant solution and in my case needs some spacers (rubber washers). But the sound and comfort over head phones is so much better now, I went into SkyrimVR just after and the difference was night and day better sound quality wise mainly volumn, wow i can here everything again now!
I don’t mean to criticise Pimax Audio solution for the 8kX it may be okay for some in quieter environments but for me this change was a necessity.
edit: just to add a disclaimer here, if you yourself attempt this somewhat easy mod be aware of what i see as the only real danger is that you could do one or two things. The mod is so far dependent on one very small screw size ph000 and if you loose it well have to find a new one, or if you strip it out you run the risk of permanently damaging your smas and the option to for adding the later KDmas. Maybe someone could find another more secure way without damaging the smas. The screw can also easily come loose over time, so again be aware and perform at your own risk.
