Daydream

its not quite that easy, the G pro X has a full on DAC and equalizer built in to Logitech’s G software. Check out some video reviews on them and youll see what I mean. Anyone spending that much money on a headset isnt just plugging it in and going. Especially when you stream for a living.

I’m sure he has it plugged into his Focusrite audio interface rather than using the cable in the back of the PC

Daydream

With his latest partnership/sponsorship thing (?) with Logitech, We might be able to get him to speak on it in a stream. With the software Logitech uses you can share or see other users settings (if they have it set up to) and even download theirs if you want. Maybe if someone has privilege’s on his streams wants to ask him to upload or make a video on it. Would be good publicity for Logitech sales department and shroud himself. Obviously people want shrouds exact gear Logitech capitalized on it already, why not his settings too!
