what amp should i get for the dt 990 pro

post #19382 of 37329

SBX surround definitely works well, I can't say it's mind-blowing coming from a G35, but it works and sound is good in game and for music.

ok Ill consider that I heard I'm supposed to look at a desktop amp though

also I'm still new to headphones and I just realized the dt 990s have been out for a really long time so are these still viable for more years from now

I think you need an amp to drive them properly since they have an impedance of 150ohm, and if it's not mind blowing then is deff not worth it, they almost 300$

The Omni has a good amp, it can drive up to 600ohm cans lol They sound really good, doesn't mean they have to be mindblowing...

Highly recommended game. Excellent game to play with a group of friends. I have over 1k hours on this game and it's a ton of fun. It's also a great game to test out the soundstage and imaging/positional accuracy of your headphones. Get it while it's still free...

But, Santa, how can you hear the audio properly through your hat? There's more than one layer of fabric in the way.

Would the AKG K702 paired up with Astro Mixamp Pro (2013 Edition) be good for gaming? If so would the Mixamp be all I need to get them working or would I have to get anything else?

You'd need an amp for those headphones to run between them and the Mixamp. The x70x do so enjoy power.

Worst case scenario, you can play with the K702 and Mixamp alone without voice chat, but if you're just gonna do that, don't bother with the K702, as you're effectively throwing your money away and barely tapping into the K702 potential. You'd do better with a 598+Mixamp alone if not getting an external amp.

The 2013 Mixamp also tends to be a little hissy.

Appreciate the fast replies!

 

In that case would getting a Fiio E07K solve the issue? Also is the mixamp necessary to produce surround sound or would getting the razer surround program do the job?

Absolutely not. The E07k is much too weak. The K702 is a ***** to drive, and needs a proper DESKTOP amp to power.

One thing to understand, power doesn't stack. You need a substantial boost in power to drive a headphone past what the Mixamp does. Simply chaining two portable amps (Mixamp+E07k) does not equate to twice the power.

Don't bother with the K702 unless you have at LEAST the E9K (and that's not even what I consider a proper pairing). More powerful would be even better. Don't half ass it with the K702.

Any homework done on the K702 would easily let you know that it's one of the hardest headphones to drive.
