Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (3/18/2016: MrSpeakers Ether C 1.1 Added) - Page 1319

post #19771 of 37443
Hey there been looking at this guide for quite some time, so I am thinking to get another gaming headphone. Here are my choices Dt990, pc360, Q701,mmx 300 I am having a dilemma and can't decide I want something that's good gaming and music. How would you compare these headsets? Also what's a cheap amp to drive them? ( under 100)

Sure you can. I'm infected, stage 2, and I'm house hunting currently. It's completely possible. Just skip the 3 car garage for a 2 car. ;)

If you are using a laptop, the 250 ohms are a no go.
I'd recommend the MA900, as it's a great headphone anyway.

It might be helpful to know what sources your plugging the headphones into?

AMP & DAC?

post #19777 of 37443

ummm not sure what sources do you think would be suitable for the 770 250ohm cause i really want these headphones XD best headphones i ever had was dr dre 1st gen beats pro but sold them didnt think they were all that amazing for 400 bucks

The Fiio E09k + the E07k as a DAC is the basic thing you can get I get. If anyone knows of a cheaper option, chime in.

Ive got an AD700X and i enjoy it much, but the AD900X is only about ~30$ more..

 

Should i upgrade to the 900X? I play CS:GO Competetive only, i dont care about Music.

I use an Xonar DX, might "Downgrade" to an DGX for an low budget AMP

Stick with the AD700x. The 900s are known to perform worse for competitive gaming.

I have a question for people that play FPS including COD Ghost on PS3, what's best Tritton Ax 720+ or Creative Aurvana Live + Mixamp, i play multiplayer mode and my budget isn't very high 150$/200$ +/- or have you any suggestion for that budget? Position and footsteps is the most important.

Sorry my bad english i'm portuguese.

 

Thank You

I'd get this:

http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Astro-Gaming-A30-Wired-Audio-System/productID.253781900

 

You get arguably the best iteration of the mixamp in terms of sound quality, plus a FREE Astro A30 headset (which is supposedly decent).  That gives everything you need to get started.

 

Later on you can add a nice open headphone using the money you saved.

Sorry to bump, but really curious if anyone has any thoughts on the ability of a Marantz receiver's headphone out powering the AKG Annies vs. a desktop amp per my question earlier: 

Hey guys, I have the AKG K702 Annies and they are driven from a Marantz receiver (SR-5005) with Dolby Headphone. Does anyone know how the output power and sound quality of a receiver like this on the headphone jack compares to say the few suggestions most people make for lower budget desktop amps here to drive the notoriously power-hungry AKGs in the $100-250 range?

I'd expect a budget desktop amp to be a side-grade or even down-grade compared to that receiver.
