Audio Quality on the vita is WOWWWWWW!

16 Replies 5,356 Views Created 25-02-2012

Did anyone notice that? After getting the vita for a few days, i tried everything and gone bored trying to load some music on it, plugging in my sub earphone (new apple in-ear) wow i notice a difference, crisp detail, not much sound distortion in it without any amp connected.

 

Then i plug in my tf10 and wow unbelieveable!!!! im not super audiophile but im really impress with the sound chip in the vita, anyone knows what sound chip is it on board?:smileyhappy: that really was a suprise

I thought sound off the device itself was very low.  Is that normal?  This is my first PSP...

Make sure AVLS is turned off on the Vita's settings

It could be argued that it is a PlayStation Portable called the VIta though.

Your earphones most doing magic with it because I've found the volume on Vita to be far too low & I'm overall not happy with the sound in game, I think it help to have a real good pair of earphones which can boost the volume with devices like this but I have so many pairs of headphones sitting around I can justify buying a nether pair.

The low volume is probably because of EU law, MP3 players in the EU have to have the volume capped by manufacturers so maybe this law applies to the Vita too, though I'm not sure.

 

Sony tends to volume cap their EU MP3 players a little lower than other manufacturers though you can sometimes get round this by going into service mode. With some MP3 players you can also get round the cap by setting the player to a non EU country.

 

If the volume cap has been applied to the Vita then it will be interesting to see if there is a way round it. Maybe someone with a Japanese/US Vita and EU Vita can compare them and confirm if the EU is actually quieter.

I find you can't go wrong with iPod headphones, I'm finding them a nice max with these headphones but others are quiet... I might just have to invest in some Beats they should be a perfect combo!

good to know the vita sound is up to these. However at £115 for earphones is a bit steep compared to the vita price lol

the sound from the vita is ok , not great but not too bad either

i use a pair of Ibeats with them and the sound is crisp clear and bassy when its needed , highly recommend getting a pair if anyone is thinking about it

Audio Quality is fine, I used my BbD Solo HD with the vita, however I agree with others that the sound is very low in terms of volume.

You should count yourselves lucky that you can use earphones at all, I can't due to my Tinnitus problems.  I have to make do with the Vita's speakers :smileytongue:

Sound quality is good but not great my biggest gripe is the volume even using earphones it's miles too low , I know it's a stupid law that volume can't exceed a certain volume but dam it's low.

Letting everyone know, the sound on the ps vita is amazing!!!! I couldnt belive it to be honest, im not talking about the speakers on the thing because those are obvoisuly going to be basic speakers, im talking about the audio outpout coming from the headphone port, i usually play music off my pc and im using an ASUS p8z68 v pro gen 3 motherboard(a very high end pc gaming motherboard) and you can hear the crispsness and clarity from the vita, didnt expect this from a handheld gaming device! very impressed!
