Sennheiser HD598 Special Edition (aka the same one in black) at 119€ on amazon.de but only via the amazon app (so can't see it through the website)
Beoplay H6 at 199€ on amazon.de https://www.amazon.de/b/ref=lp_8662678031_gb1h_tit_c-3_0207_96cf46c6?rh=i%3Aelectronics%2Cn%3A8662678031%2Cn%3A8662678031&ie=UTF8&smid=A3JWKAKR8XB7XF&node=8662678031   Not an outsider but apparently they are quiet good.
Hey guys, just found this topic where you might better help me... I'll copy paste my message from the DT990 thread: I received my DT990 pro 250 ohm yesterday. I'm using it with a Sound Blaster E5 as a dac. That dac/amp got a switch "low gain / high gain" which supposedly should be used based on the impedance. The low one is for 0-120 ohm headphones while the high one is for 120-600 ohm. My issue is that if I use the high gain I have to set the volume of my computer on 10%...
 I'm using it as a DAC (so no line in). So the volume knob adapts the volume of the PC and not only of the amp.I guess that I'll indeed use the low gain setting. Just scared of losing some bass due to the lowest impedance provided. But that's really weird, maybe Creative didn't implement that gain thing correctly :( I've switched to the E5 thread. I think they'll be able to give me more info concerning this issue.
Hello everyone,   I received my DT990 pro 250 ohm yesterday. I'm using it with a Sound Blaster E5. That dac/amp got a switch "low gain / high gain" which supposedly should be used based on the impedance. The low one is for 0-120 ohm headphones while the high one is for 120-600 ohm. My issue is that if I use the high gain I have to set the volume of my computer on 10% else the volume will blow my ears.   Anyone encountered the same issue ? DO you have any suggestion ?...
Yo, small feedback concerning the dt990. Just listened to some tracks so this is not a definitive opinion. I really like them, they are quiet comfortable and this is the signature that i was looking for. Didn't test in any game yet so I won't say anything about gaming . As for the trebles I do not find them too hard, maybe it's the Sound Blaster E5 which has some rolloff with those frequencies? Last thing, if I set the E5 on high gain I cant put the volume higher than...
 Well I found those graphs from a website that I trust and DT990 and X1 seems to share the same kind of  signature: X1: DT990: Sources: http://www.lesnumeriques.com/casque-audio/philips-fidelio-x1-p14348/test.html (in French sorry) and http://www.digitalversus.com/headphones/beyerdynamic-dt-990-pro-p21660/test.html Couldn't find a X1 only X2. So I'll give a try to the DT990 (139€ via Amazon) and as I said I can send them back if i'm not happy. Thanks for your help, I'll...
Well since I intend to use the headphones for gaming only (and not competitive, i'm speaking about AAA titles such as Tomb Raider or The Division or whatever will be out) I would want to have a decent amount of bass. The Fidelio X2 is 100€ above the DT990 and 80€ above the HD598. So from now on I'll wait a little bit.   The other option is now to order a DT990 from Amazon and send it back if I do not like it :D edit: DT990 250ohm ordered. Let's see how they do.
 Unfortunately the AKG K7XX is not available in Europe :(I totally forgot about the Fidelio X2, I'll give them a look. Thanks!
Damn... Still can't decide. I've looked into this the whole weekend and there is at least one issue for each of the models I've selected.   HD598: apparently there is almost no bass? DT990: apparently the trebles are really tiresome. DT880: apparently it has issues with virtual headphones, rear sound does not work that weel. K702: same issue as for the HD598.   So back to the point where I do not know what to do. Maybe the K612 Pro could be the solution...   Else do...
