Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Vokyl Erupt designed for the PC, Xbox One, PS4, or mobile?
Yes! The Erupt uses a completely analog signal, so you can use it for any one of these things. We will say that you will need a 3.5mm splitter for PC use or an adapter if your phone does not have a headphone jack :(
Is the Erupt just for gaming?
No! We designed the Erupt to be your new audio secret weapon. It will give you a fantastic headphone experience whether you use it for gaming, movies, or music.
What about surround sound?
You probably see our headset and are thinking “Wow the Vokyl guys are a bunch of surround sound haters”. We don’t hate surround sound. We love surround sound. We think that surround sound is awesome. We just think that it's best delivery method for headphones is something besides the headphones (software, DAC, etc). Engineers put a lot of work into in-game sound design and there's some great free surround software out there, so we encourage you to use those options with your Erupt headset.
What if I have a studio/desktop mic?
Great! Desktop mics are top quality gear. Simply use your mic-less cable for the Erupt headset and you’re good to go! You’ll use the Erupt as a pair of headphones and your mic as you always have.
What if I have a headphone amp and/or DAC?
Ooh you know what you’re doing, this is a fantastic way to enjoy your Erupt! For headphone use, you’ll use the Erupt via whatever output your amp has. For headset use, you’ll need a splitter to utilize your amp/sound card’s mic input.
I wear glasses. Will this headset crush my temples?
While no one on the Vokyl team is a nerd with corrective eyewear, we have heard from several nerds that these are some of the most comfortable headphones they’ve worn with their glasses.
My question is clearly not one that is frequently asked, how do I get more information?
Well we did our best, don’t hesitate to shoot us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you still have questions. The instructions guide included in your headset is also a great source of information!
