amitabhbansal, you could also go with the Sony Pulse Elite Edition USB dongle/Wireless. These sound awesome. The only drawback is only 5-6 hours of battery time before needing a recharge. Buy 2 and keep the other charging.

The bass is awesome, even without the Bass Impact boost, and gaming / movies sound great. They say Playstation 3, but they work great on my G750JH and PS4. If you reduce the Bass Impact you can extend the battery life.

Much better sound than BT headphones, but I still mostly use my Sony MDR-10RBT's because I switch between the G750 and Sony Z Ultra during the day, and I get 18+ hours use from them.

I can also recommend the Sony MDR-1RBT headphones, but there is also a MKII version of those out now too - I haven't tried those. The originals got 20+ hours of run time.

Another thing to try is to push through the obstruction with a more narrow plug - like used with Toslink - the headphone jack doubles as a Toslink port. You would use an adapter like this:

If that fits, you can run a headphone amp, Receiver, DAC or other Toslink capable device - like my Sennheiser RS-220 headphones- to get audio out.

amitabhbansal, bad news, there are lots of complaints about the G35 / 390 not working reliably on Windows 8.1 with USB 3.0

It may be related to USB 3.0 vs USB 2.0 ports, and the G750 only has USB 3.0 ports

http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support/g35-surround-sound-headset?section=downloads&bit=&osid=23&prevOSID=

It looks like it isn't reliable on USB 3.0 + Windows 8.1...

Here is an older Steam post that might help if the newest unified driver won't work well, and the 64 bit ftp url still works, these are Windows 8.0/8.1 problems...

amitabhbansal, if I was there I would start looking for new distributors inside India, to find a Sony, Sennheiser, or other dealer to import what I wanted - like the ones I mentioned - or other devices that are known to work with Windows 8.1. There must be a Sony India or Sennheiser India or some other wireless headphone maker importing to India - it is a popular product / need / desire.

And, I would go into your local India Asus Support center and explain the problem with the headphone jack, and try to get it fixed - without them messing up something else :)

And, you should know some people have issue with the headphone jack analog audio with low impedance headphones, like Apple earbuds, or other similar earbuds. You want wired headphones with 100-300ohm impedance to match the headphone amp in the G750.

I have paired other Bluetooth brands as well, like Plantronics - these the predecessors of these models that ship in the US:

Call of Duty® Ghosts Ear Force Phantom Limited Edition Gaming Headset - these are good.
https://www.turtlebeach.com/product-detail/call-of-duty-headsets/call-of-duty-ghosts-phantom/394

amitabhbansal, I thought you wanted to avoid a wired headset? Did you get the headphone jack fixed? For a working USB solution you are going to have to find someone that has hooked it up with a USB 3.0 port and Windows 8.1 to make sure it is compatible / trouble-free.

Charging becomes 2nd nature, as I fall asleep I plug in half a dozen things to make sure they are all ready for when I wake up the next day :)

The Pulse headset solution is to get 2... kinda overkill you might think, but think of the 2nd one as a backup for when you accidentally trash one of the two, you will still have one to use while the other is fixed/replaced. You can always start with just 1 to make sure you like it, you will :)

Before the Sony MDR-10RBT I used to rotate between several Sennheiser models - MM450/MM350, and before that several Plantronics headsets - the Sony is the first one with a long enough charge, and sturdy enough that I can depend on it enough to have just 1. I took back my Sony MDR-1RBT as I didn't need 2 for backup.

Sony India doesn't list the Pulse headset in their Playstation gaming area, but someone independent might import them.

Let us know what you find.

FlipKart is an importer in India that has Sony gaming accessories, but don't list the Pulse headphones, they might be able to import them for you... you could ask:

They do import other gaming headsets :)

Remember, the USB headset's don't work well on the USB 3.0 + Windows 8.x, so make sure you can return whatever you get to try out. Know that specifically the Razer's have been complained about on here before, the Kraken.

amitabhbansal, Sennheiser makes lots of different models with different sizes and materials, I doubt it is their company policy to make headsets that are uncomfortable for amitabhbansal ;)

I have found some headsets in all brands that are uncomfortable, so you just have to look to the characteristics / size / materials that you have found work for you, and find them again in another brand/model/function.

I found several gaming headsets, like the Triton's and another I can't quite remember the name right now, that were hard and square shaped that boxed my ears - so I took them back.

If you look at the Sony round and plush ear pads, that is what you are looking for. The Turtle Beach ones have that feel too. And the Sennheiser MM450's over ear have that too, my MM350's are smaller and on ear but are so light and the pads soft enough that I can wear them for hours.

The Sony MDR-1RBT's were heavy, but they were balanced - they were a bit too closed, and I sometimes sweat in them, so there are even drawbacks with some that are otherwise perfect.

I am always on the lookout for the perfect surround, gaming, BT headsets, and have given you my list already... I don't know of any others except for the USB kind - there are some obscure high end ones that are tough to even find here that I like, but unlikely to be available in India...

These 2 look awesome, but I haven't tried them, and you would need to test to make sure they provide 7.1 surround on the G750... make sure you can return them if they don't work.

You can ask Sennheiser if they have compatibility reports for Asus G750's before ordering.

Please come back and give us a review, and let us know if the Sennheiser 3D USB works with the G750 USB 3.0 and Windows 8.1 :)

amitabhbansal, AFAIK there is only 1 edition of the Pulse headphones, where did you find a new edition vs old edition mentioned?

The Condition is New, so they aren't used.

If you are worried about the battery time, I would try the Sennheisers first. See my other post.

*BassImpact technology, 7.1 virtual surround sound and Audio Modes are only available on the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 systems and may require a system software update.

Also these are Surround sound on the PS3/4, but Stereo on PC/Mac.

These 2 look awesome, but I haven't tried them, and you would need to test to make sure they provide 7.1 surround on the G750... make sure you can return them if they don't work.

You can ask Sennheiser if they have compatibility reports for Asus G750's before ordering.

Please come back and give us a review, and let us know if the Sennheiser 3D USB works with the G750 USB 3.0 and Windows 8.1 :)

amitabhbansal, there are few headphones that will do surround sound, and fewer still, that will cover all the systems.

The Sony Pulse Elite does Virtual Surround on the PS3/4 and PC, and focus on Bass, gaming, and action. They sound good for movies too, but they aren't the best audio fidelity, the Sennheisers are built on better fidelity elements, but both are enjoyable.

The Sennheiser uses a 3D Surround processor driven from a USB device, for the PC, it is unlikely it will work on the PS3/PS4 - the Sennheiser docs list only PC support.

If you are going to game, watch movies, and stream video more on the PC then get the Sennheiser's, if you are going to split across the PS3/4 and PC then I would get both - that is why I have several sets of headphones, there isn't one that does it all.

The Turtle Beach gaming Headphones are great on the PS/Xbox, and work on the PC too, but to move the decoder / stand to the PC and back to the PS/Xbox would be a pain, so I use other headphones on the PC / Mac / Android and yet another set on the TV.

You started out looking for headphones to use on the PC, and the Sennheisers have a chance of being the best for the PC. But, you have to make sure you can return them if the Sennheiser USB Device doesn't work well on the G750 USB 3.0 / Windows 8.1. Call / email Sennheiser to make sure they will work.

It's too bad the headphone jack is messed up, you would be able to use Toslink for all the devices, and run them through a Receiver with Toslink and you could drive normal headphones.

The Sony's are great on the PS4, and work fine on the PC, so they are a good choice, just not as good as the PC only Sennheisers with Surround support in their USB device.

I wish there was a simple answer :)

When you find out if the Sennheiser Surround USB device with the PC 363D and PC 333D work on the G750 USB 3.0 + Windows 8.1 you will be the first to report back to the Forum, so you will be helping lots of G750 owners :)

Here is someone that used the PC 363D on a G75VX, but that is likely with USB 2.0 and WIndows 7:

amitabhbansal, the US model number is on the US sites, we didn't find it on the India site.

You need to find out where your seller sources their Sony items, if from a country other than the US, you will need to find the part number for the source country, it might be different.

When you find the source country, you can look it up on that countries Sony site, and the part number will be in the description somewhere, like here on the US site(s).

Here are highlighted sections from the URL's I gave you, showing the US part number

amitabhbansal, sorry no, that is why I said buy 2 :)

I have other headphones to take over when the battery gives out after 5-6 hours, maybe I should buy another one...

Yeah, that was what I was worried about with the USB dongle driven headphones - Windows 8.x + USB 3.0 can be problematic. Let's hope Sennheiser has worked out the bugs. Are they going to let you demo it on your G750? That is ideal!

The bass impact could get a little tiring 24/7, so maybe it's good you have to take a break of 3-5 hours in between for charging.

There is something to be said of the fidelity of the RS-220 over Toslink... another choice, it's not Surround, but it is most pleasing.

amitabhbansal, the Asus Nomad laptop bag has a headphone hanger built into the bag, check out this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q9XTT9uGUAk

I have a number of large bags I have gathered over the years from headphones, so I just reuse one of those when I need to cover up the headphones for travel, or they came with their own bag. Or, I wear the headphones, more typically. There are also craft bags that you can get at bazaar's or art fairs, and I keep my eyes open for those for later use for electronics, cables, headphones, etc.

3D Glasses for what? I use large glasses cases like for Sunglasses, check with your optometrist / glasses shop. I find the Maui Jim's, Coach, and Yves Saint Laurent cases work nicely. The glasses shop carries cases without matching glasses so you can purchase them separately.

Have fun :)

Too bad, it is a nice sturdy backpack... maybe you can keep searching for a source that is less expensive. The price here in the US also jumps due to availability, but I waited till a large shipment came in and rode the price down to $112, down from over $200 originally.

If you find a source in India to get it for a more reasonable price, please post it here :)

You may have not upgraded all your drivers, like the Asus Charger+, there may be another one involved. Look at what you have installed via Programs and Features, and find newer versions to install.

I answered this a couple of times before, fixing the problem, but I don't recall all the elements involved at the moment. It was a driver upgrade though :)

amitabhbansal, this is why I like to debug problems in the forum, and not in PM. :)

Here are the PM's:




My charger Plus software was 2.1.5 i just updated to 3.1.9, but giving me some error BIOS reporting failed, i think its disabled in BIOS and i forgot how to enter in BIOS, please tell me to get in the bios

amitabhbansal, as a suggestion, I would download the manual in your favorite language from the download area. All the standard shortcuts are covered there. F2 is what you use from a powered off state. Immediately after you press power on button, start gently tapping the F2 key - not the Fn+F2, just the F2, then when the BIOS comes up use the right/left/down/up arrow keys to move around - you will see the USB Chaging option to enable - all this is in the manual :)

I am trying F2 from last 30 minutes but not able to access it, when the system is off as i press power and then immediately i start pressing F2 but nothing happens just windows start, i dont know how i entered in the bios before, i forgot :(


Read the G750JZ English manual starting at page 68 => F2

Or, enter from Windows:

http://www.thewindowsclub.com/access-uefi-firmware-settings-windows-8-1



You tap F2, you don't press and hold F2.

I just did it myself. I powered down my JH, and from power down state, I used my right hand forefinger to press the power button, then moved my right hand to the F2 key and pressed it:

tap, tap, tap and on the 3rd tap the screen went blue, and after a few seconds the BIOS screen came up.

Then use the right arrow key to move to the Advanced tab and enable everything then press F10 to exit and save, confirm, done :)

You want to keep the latest version 3.1.9, that is what I have been running for a while. And, I get full speed on all the USB 3.0 ports.

Test the speed on all ports - remember small file transfers will run slower than a benchmark run - stick to the same test so you have a base to compare to.

This is what my device manager usb device entries look like, note I have both generic microsoft and intel devices - and I get full speed USB 3.0 on all ports.

Refresh the page and read the long post with our PM's above. Reinstall the 3.1.9, I use that version, there are no model specific versions.

Then go into the BIOS and enable the USB charger.

If you still have errors, don't uninstall the 3.1.9 version, keep it, and test the usb throughput, ignore the error we will figure it out :)

amitabhbansal, sorry I had 2 USB devices attached that clouded the pure view, here are the USB device entries without any external USB devices attached.

41222

I don't load all the default Nvidia drivers from their install package, just these:

41223

I don't have a 3D screen internal/external, so I don't install that driver - which apparently includes a USB component - probably for the 3D sensor. You can leave it installed, but it isn't needed and can be uninstalled.

How is your USB 3.0 speed through all the ports with USB Charger Plus 3.1.9 installed?

What is your test? Are you doing a copy? Try a CrystalDiskMark run, you can reduce the size from 1000MB to 50MB to make the test scale for a USB test. Then test against each port, and find take a snipping tool snippet of each completed run - save them for yourself as a base run, don't post here :)

Which port are you getting the fastest CrystalDiskMark run, what are the READ/Write speeds, first line?

Windows Explorer copy speed vary from run to run depending how the list of files from the source directory are enumerated by Windows, and copying lots of small files goes slowly, even on USB 3.0 that is working properly. It is an unreliable method of benchmarking - use a throughput tester like CrystalDiskMark instead - it will give you consistent test runs you can save and use as a reference.

Did you get into the BIOS and set the USB Charger option?

Uninstall the Nvidia 3D package that includes the USB device, just in case it is interfering, lets sync our configs so we can debug.

You can also uninstall USB Charger Plus completely, reboot, and test the speeds - to remove that component/variable from consideration.

I ran the Crystaldiskmark test on all 4 USB 3.0 ports, with the 1TB 5400rpm HDD, here are the results

Read/Write MB/sec 50MB
Left Rear - 87 / 84
Left Front - 87 / 85
Right Rear - 87 / 85
Right Front - 87 / 83

Pretty consistently the max speed of that slooow HDD.

amitabhbansal, thats excellent! The materials are likely to match the purpose - light weight and fast moving for gaming. Sometimes going from exaggerated sound / video makes it tough to go back to perfect sound/video - but you get used to it again, and appreciate it - then moving back to the exaggerated sound/video isn't as nice - it's strange how the human body/senses adapt to the situation and don't like to change again :)

My Sennheiser RS180, RS170, RS220 all sound great, I look forward to trying out the 363D's :)

Thanks for reporting back amitabhbansal!

amitabhbansal, did you uninstall Asus Charger Plus, and update the Intel INF Chipset, and update everything else? Reboot after uninstalling Asus Charger Plus.

What are you testing against? A USB 2.0 or a USB 3.0 device, what is the device? 1 pass on 50MB is enough to get the kind of reading we are looking for, a quick test is ok.

amitabhbansal, uninstall the 2.1.5 version - the old version you reinstalled - and reboot - don't install the new version. Then check the speed.
