Hi Mad Lust Envy,
I am trying to set up my PC for better headphone experience (my time spent using the headphone is mainly for MMO gaming and movies/mp3.
I am currently running Soundblaster Z and Tactic3D Sigma (wired) and going towards a wireless setup.
I have Astro Mixamp 5.8 coming my way in about 10days and I am wondering which headphones would you recommend me to use?
1) Beyerdynamics DT990 Pro 250ohm
2) Philips Fidelio X1
I can get a pair of DT990 for about US$150 there about pretty good price. I just do not know if the mixamp rx unit is able to power it, I do have a mini pocket amp Fiio E5 if it is of any help at all for my setup. The next most logical upgrade will be a portable amp like Fiio E17 or portable tube amps.
My question is if I would need to get the E17, would it be more sensible to get the X1 over the DT990 Pro? I end up paying about the same for getting E17 and the DT990. Of coz getting E17 would means more flexibility for my future applications like getting E9 dock for E17 and high quality headphones.
Hope you can comment. Cheers!
