Finally have a decent headphone/mic setup. Running the Sennheiser HD6XX through my AV Reviever (Marantz 6012) and they sound great. Will have a dedicated amp/dac setup in the future (looking at GD R2R 11). Currently have the ModMic pluged in via a splitter to my controller. I've had difficulties optimizing this setup due to powering the headphones from an external source (not the controller) and therefore not being able to adjust chat volume in Xbox settings. To fix this I am now running the ModMic to a computer (with Windows 10) and using the Xbox app to host parties. A bit more complicated than I prefer, but it works nonetheless.

If anyone has suggestions of how to better setup this combination on Xbox, advise would be nice. I don't want to plug the headphones into the splitter, sound quality and volume is not as good.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the ModMic thus far. The unidirectional function of this mic works great and blocks out even loud music that I have playing in the background. But I can still speak quietly and be heard.

Thanks for the drops, Massdrop!

Just so you guys know, you can buy strips of 3M tape on amazon for a couple of dollars and re-use your base magnets, rather than spending 15-20 dollars getting ripped off for a couple more. The old tape comes off pretty easy if you work the edges then rip it off, and the new tape adheres exactly the same.

I appreciate the problem you're having with the adhesive, but the average life of people's adhesives is over 3 years based on our survey results. We believe this current adhesive is as strong as possible without damaging the surface it is applied to. Stronger adhesives exist, but we don't want our base clasp to damage the headphones should you remove it or the adhesive fail. I'm certainly not arguing that you're having difficulty with it, and you're certainly not the first or only person. I would love to know why your adhesive failed though, but its hard to ID since if you knew you wouldn't have the problem in the first place :) Here's some quick tips/common issues:
Installation:
Be sure to really clean the surface with isopropyl alcohol and make sure its totally dry. Don't touch the surface with your fingers after cleaning.
Stick it on and hold it down very firmly for 1-3 minutes and then let it rest for an hour.
For even more firmness, heat the adhesive with a hair dryer and let it rest with a book or something on it overnight. Careful not to melt the adhesive.

Cable and Resting Positions:
Once you get the cables set up how you want, make sure there's a little bit of slack on the microphone cable so the mic isn't taking the entire weight of the headphone cable and any cable stress.
Don't rest the device ON the mic when you set it down. If you don't have a good headphone stand, just lay your headphones down mic-up.
Most adhesive failures do not occur due to a sharp amount of force, but rather a small amount of force over a prolonged period.

If I can think of more I'll post them :)
I picked up a ModMic during the October drop and have been using it with Sennheiser HD579's and a PS4. The adhesive has held up well even though it is mounted to the metal screen on the outside of the headphones. The performance of the mic exceeded my expectations. Nobody complains about hearing background noise like a football game or the sound of my furnace that is 6 feet away from where I play in an unfinished basement. My only complaint is that the cord is super long and not modular so that I can swap out different lengths. I can't wait for the (hopefully) inevitable ModMic 5.0 drop.

Thanks for the review TreeFrogs - Glad to see another happy customer :)

Don't buy the modmic 5. Just get a TRRS Jack and solder on a new connection after cutting it shorter. I have an old unused modmic 4, I may do this for the heck of it but I'll need to buy some TRRS jacks first.
EDIT: I just purchased several TRRS Jacks, gonna be a couple weeks until they arrive, but I will post the results.
you've got to be kidding me. I JUST bought the minimic....
should i take this or go to modmic 5 ? i already have 1 and need 1 more for my sony ma900 tough :(

in don't have really xlr connection amp so i pass on it i play purely on pc gaming and console only
That's tempting, but I already have a Modmic 5, and a DAC. Additional costs of a decent XLR capable ADC of decent quality and a new mic isn't something I need, I'd rather buy more headphones. Good to see you guys branching out a bit though.
My version is the muteless omni variety, purchaced in 2016.

The Good ; I had really good audio quality from my old MSI 890GXM-G65 motherboard rear connector. No frills just plug it in and a bit of volume boost helps.

The Bad; Its been 1.5 years since purchase and my cable is cracking and plasticy. At the spot where the cable connects to the boom there protrudes exposed copper. I can bend it a few times with my fingers and cause graying in the black plastic cable. I'm not covered under warranty so I suppose i'll solder a new cable on .

My overall review; I'd buy this again as the quality vs price is good and its super convenient for daily use. Perhaps the company is using higher quality cable instead of this plastic crap now, and i know to give the mic cable more slack next time for easier wear and tear.

already join my second modmic 4 drops

but for the acc packs the mass tell me to buy another modmic4 so i can get the acc pack

it['s not even let me buy the acc packs more than one :( i use the cable ties in my first modmic if i know was like this instead buying the useless antlion modmic soundcard

i should get the acc pack in my first drop :(

this is sad

do you have any ways to buy 1 modmic4 and 2 acc packs sir?
aditxman
Yeah I am saying if you email the Massdrop guys right now they SHOULD be able to add a second accessory pack to your order (I don't see why they can't). There's nothing I can do from my side unfortunately, as I don't have access to anything behind the scenes here.
what are the chances that this will drop?
EndlessRage
It just opened again, yo.
i need this 1 more for my sony mdr ma900 man pls drop it again

the one i already bought already attached to akg k702 so i need this 1 more

also the soundcard is not to good tough

but i will buy 1 more with 2 pcs extra acc packs !!!
whoa massdrop more faster than the promising shipping day

11 january and already shipped out nice man
My ModMic 4 Uni has been really lackluster. I hope I have a bad sample because even old discarded phone headsets are favorable in comparison.

It has bad issues with gain and noise. I need to set gain to +30dB and stuff the mic so close it's touching my lips to be heard at all, and even using noise reducing software the noise is clearly audible. The magnet glue-on also can't stick to my headphones and falls off just from the weight of the mic itself.
