Thanks for the quick reply!
Let's say I need the ability to use voice chat with my fun headphone; does that make the DT770 Pro 80 the next best choice after forgoing the DT990 Pro?
The D2000, D5000, and D7000 are all discontinued so anyone's who's interested should probably snap them up now.
Thanks for the recommendation, I guess I'll stop looking at the DT 770 Pro 80.
Would double-amping the DT 990 Pro with the Astro Mixamp and another cheap amp like the FiiO E5/E6 allow me to use voice chat with it on the Astro Mixamp (if it would even work)? Or would buying the D2000 still be the better option?
I found the DT 990 Pro for about $150 so I could buy a $30 amp and still be within my price range. I'm not really knowledgeable about amping headphones so I'm not sure if it would work or not. From what I understand, you can use an E9 and do it but that's more expensive.
I'm just pushing this voice chat thing out of love for options and convenience. I'd be fine just using the DT 990 Pro for fun and using my AD700 + mic for voice chat if I had to. Thank you for answering my questions. :D
Just saw a video review on youtube from akaTRENT .. He said the PC360 and the new A40's sound about up to par, The a40's have more bass and the PC360 a wider sound stage.
I got the a40's and was looking at the PC360's but I do like bass too so I guess I'll scrap the PC360's off my list .. Im checking out the other headphones in your review now (thanks alot for all the info) .. Which headphone would be the best choice for a great surround sound while keeping heavy impact basses from explosions or epic movie theatre basses?
Btw. I also got the Tritton AX pro's and I agree with you the sound kinda sucks for what you pay for it. There's static noise coming from the drivers non stop (I read its the magnetics in the drivers causing this because they're placed too close to eachother). At first I liked them but as soon as I started playing I noticed the bass sounds very muddy .. Every grenade going off sounds like WHOOOOOOOOOOMMMM rather than BOOM! .. Gets exhausted to listen to after a short while especially when you're into a small map where ppl throw away their nades as soon as they spawn
I used the w4's for fps and they are very accurate. Only problem is my right ear canal is bigger than my left so the sound some times sounded good in my left ear and than right sounded a bit far or less defined. Some one on the head-fi uses the T1's and said he liked them.
