PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

    Best headphones for PMDG Sound

    I am currently using Bose Pure Sport headphones. They are great for the sound. Does anyone know if the noise cancelling non-wireless headphones draw some sort of power from the computer which could affect FPS? Meaning does The noise cancelling technology draw computer power somehow?

      The answer is no, it does not.

      Can you provide some sources on your statement besides the only one that I found to which that one wasn't even resolved and was related to a USB issue seperate of joysticks, mouses. You've peaked my interest on this "proven" issue with P3D.

      How does the power draw affect FPS? And your wireless phones draw power too. probably more power than a wired version. Bose is meh, when you get yourself senheiser for 2 grand then you can brag . Other than that. I'm quite happy with my no frills logitech 600s Actually use it more than senheiser. My wireless band is too overcrowded getting all kinds of issues and problems and no patience to troubleshoot them.

        Funny you said that because I use HD 800S for flight sim and everything else.

          It doesn't and if you saw "proven" answers about that issue then you wouldn't have even asked.

            I use the HyperX Cloud Stinger Core headset. They're wireless, or you can plug in a charging cable to them and they're wired then. They have amazing and I really mean amazing quality sound. I have some crappy amazon headset with decent base, but the plastic was cheap. This headset that I have is about $80 USD, but man does it do some work! It has surround sound, noise cancelling, they're very high quality and they don't squeeze your head to death. Highly recommend. PMDG sounds, and any other aftermarket base sounds, are just pure bliss for the ears.

              I was so getting tired of being tangled up in the wires or snagging the cable with my chair and dragging headphones onto the floor that I got me GSP series. Only to find out that my wireless band is so over crowded that they'll either drop connection every half an hour or worse yet shoot me up with so much static that my fillings pop. Now I have to decide if I want HD800s or a Virpil set, and given the havoc pandemic played with mainstream stick prices I'm leaning towards virpil. At least I don't feel too pissed off when my logitechs get dragged over on the floor and get cracked. I'd be doing some serious wall punching if HD800 would get damaged like that. Curiously enough my RS195s hooked up to my receiver work just fine. Guess that separate heavy duty transmitter does make a difference.

                    I have also got the HyperX Wireless headset and I am very pleased with them. Really hated all the cables and if you are like that then I highly recommend it. Also as Jordan mentioned you can use it as wired headset by connecting the charger to your PC's USB port.

                        I would never go wireless until I really need it, because I've never seen any advantage other than being able to move around over bigger distances: You have to load them or change batteries, and you still have a chance that they interfere with other wireless devices. So, I've got the Beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro and I'm perfecetly happy with it. Before that, I had some Sennheiser SD xxx something (??), they've been very similar and also very good. What's very important for me is that they don't push at my ears at any time. And the only solution for me were headphones that sit aournd my ears, and not those in-ear plugs. Furthermore, I prefer open headphones over closed ones (some headphones are availible in both versions), because the closed ones anyhow gave me a vacuum feeling in my ears, even if this wasn't the case. Closed headphones only make sense to me if you mustn't be heard in the same room or if you're making recordings and the sound from your ears mustn't be heard through the microphone again. Apart from those conditions, I've always been happy with most around 150€ open headphones that sit around my ears. And I've tested a lot of those before buying.

                        I'm a music teacher and I'm playing in a band semi-profesionally. So, for the monitor sound on stage, I really needed wireless headphones, because I need to switch between the keyboard and the trombone all the time. I also needed in good in-ear plugs that isolate well and that still don't cause any pain in the ears after 6 hours. In the end, I've paid 300€ for the reciever / body pack, and again 700€ only for some InEar SD 4 in-ear plugs (yes, all the others were pain in my ears after some time!). And all I can say in the end is: They are really good, but they don't sound the slightest bit better than my big wired 150€ Beyerdynamic headphones at home. The only thing they can do better is being small and give me the chance to move around without looking like Mickey Mouse ;-) I don't need to do this in fron of my PC while flight simming, so I don't use the InEars there.

                        But as you can see, opinions on that are very different. What I want to say is just: It mostly takes less money for classic big headphones to sound good in comparison to smaller wireless stuff. That has at least been my experience.

                        Best regards,
                        Dominik Jensen

                            I also have my eye on a pair of those! I have heard good reports and read some reviews about them. They are wired though.

                              I also have the arctis 5. Super great on vatsim since you can use the included chat mix dial to raise and lower VATSIM atc as needed and on the fly.

                                I understand, I actually bought a custom aftermarket cable so I can use them as a 4 pin XLR for my dedicated headphone AMP/DAC. I use the Schitt Jotunheim. I got the cable at a good length as I don't understand why Sennheiser supplies a 10 foot cable...
