Since my budget is limited, i'll order the dss and the creatives. I can still upgrade in the future. And anythings better than tv speakers.

I don't think you'll be disappointed, though I believe your first of headphones should be open, to be wowed more by the virtual surround. Tempted on saying the modded HD555 probably would yield the best result in the low price range, though I haven't heard the HD555 yet.

Don't start a flame war, son.

 

PC or console, they have their own pros and cons.

Whoa I just noticed this thread. Great writeup! Thanks for taking the effort to put this together. Your thoughts mirror my own on most of the cans I've had. I definitely agree on your findings with the K701. I recently repurchased a K701 as my main gaming can. I still need to give the LCD-2 a go to see how it compares but it keeps slipping my mind.

Really interested in this as I have made a vow not to buy another headphone until I can afford the LCD-2.

How would the JVC HA-RX700 fall into the mix?

At less than $34, it's one of those that I would just buy and try out to see for myself. If you end up getting them and then not liking them...give me a shout. I'll buy them off you.

How would the Ultrasone HFI-780 compare to the DT990 for gaming/movies? The HFI-780 are on sale for $170 and I'm thinking of picking them up.

They are both incredible for music.

I personally would go with the DT990s for gaming and movies unless you need some sort of isolation. From what I remember the Sones (Pro650/750) did well with gaming but not to the level of the DT990s. Still it has been awhile since I've listened to either so take that with a grain of salt.

Well, I have K702 and DT990, and for me, they both sound great with music.

 

With classical/female/acustic the K702 sound much better than DT990, but with rock DT990 bass has more impact.

 

Fiio E9 drives K701/2 without any problem at all. Also Matrix m-stage is a well-known amp for K701

The Hfi-780s would give you more of a theater-like experience. A lot of people praise them for gaming, but there are also some people who say they never found them astounding for gaming. It's a toss up, primarily because Ultrasone uses S-Logic, which is basically supposed to emulate surround sound with the way the drivers are angled etc. When you pair that with something else that attempts to emulate surround sound, you can either get one badass surround effect or a horrible, cross reflecting sound cues. I don't have any experience, but I know I almost bought them specifically for gaming and movies. $170 is a sick price, they are also closed.
