When running on a budget, Mix Amps can be pretty darn costly. Especially if you’re looking at something by the likes of Astro where you’ll be paying £100, which is quite a sum. However, Prif got you covered with a more affordable option in the form of the MixSonic 1. The MixSonic 1 is compatible with PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC DVD and Mac. So the MixSonic 1 is quite a versatile little device, and it will only set you back at £30 (It has been sold for less too). It’s small and compact design make it easy for travel or storage when not in use. The functions consist of options for game volume, chat volume, monitoring your voice loudness and a button for local chat for those that game via Lan.

Prif´s Mixsonic 1 does exactly what it says on the box for the product.

Sound wise the MixSonic 1 doesn’t have any sound settings that let you enhance Bass. For example, it simply makes adjusting volume into a simple and streamlined experience. In other words, I didn’t need to stop my game and bring up the PlayStation menu to sort out my in-game volume, just a twist of a dial is all that’s needed. In conjunction with the PlaySonic 2, the two went hand in hand; the PlaySonic 2 received a noticeable boost to audio quality. I even used my Astro headset, and the little device did a good job at putting through decent sound. Furthermore, MixSonic 1 should come in handy when it comes to making sure that your voice isn’t too loud for other players in party chat. As it lets you monitor your loudness using the voice monitor function, so your pals won’t hear you while you’re eating crisps.

Furthermore, the MixSonic 1 is best used as a Lan device, daisy chaining one to another is good for Esports environments and teams running on a budget. The sound quality may differ from user to user, depending on your headphones you’re using. I found it adequate while not on par with higher-end goods that offer various options to set your audio to specific settings (which are available on the likes of Turtle Beach PX5 or an Astro Mix Amp). However, for the price it does enough to make it a reasonable purchase. Prif state the amp is able to provide better bass and treble which it does deliver a slight quality boost compared to simply plugging in your headset to your controller.

The Prif MixSonic 1 is small and compact, so it´s perfect for travel.

There aren’t any immediate downsides with the MixSonic 1 as it does what it says on the box, nothing less and nothing more. It’s a good starting point for those looking to fine-tune their gaming set up on a budget before leaping into the high-end sound set ups, for those looking for a set up that’s on a budget look no further than Prif’s MixSonic 1.
