hey everyone, another newbie here, i am looking at some headphones for computer gaming use, along with minimal use for movies & music through my computer.
I am looking at the HD598 & DT990s based on researching over the last few weeks, and have read up on mad envy's thread here on the forums recently. can anyone suggest which would be ideal for gaming? for the DT990's which version should i get , 32 OHM or 250 OHM? while i enjoy bass, i am not sure if the DT990 would be to much for online gaming where voice chat is common or would drown out the other sounds due to heavy bass.
I am leaning towards picking up a Xonar card as well, and wondering if it would provide enough juice to run the headphones, or if i should plan on getting an amp along with a xonar card? Its looking like i will probably pick up the xonar STX & headphone, but i am still unsure if going another route is preferable for online gaming, with a dac/amp setup connected to the headphones?
I'm going to guess the Essence STX will be fine powering 250-ohm cans, but as my Essence STX will not arrive for another few days, will not be able to test the STX with my 250-Ohm cans.
