How about the headphones that I mentioned before? How do they work with Xonar DG card if I am going to buy it?

Any headphone between 32-Ohm to 150-Ohm should work fine with the Xonar DG.

 

Sennheiser HD558 50-Ohm

AKG 240 & 242 55-Ohm

I'm afraid that its calling more than just my name. More like my soul and everything I have. XD

I would never spend that much on a headphone.

When they go down to $600 on E-E, then maybe.

Portapro vs. KSC75?

It is so deep and clean, with just the right amount of reverb. It is just one of those wonderful bass tracks. I find a lot of chill trip-hop and dubstep have those wonderfully deep sub level sounds. 

There is a mix on 8tracks called Lucid that I have listened to almost every night for the past couple of days cause it just rocks.

 

Hirvi I would just try the HD558 and see if it to your liking as long as you can return it. (Most important part.) I had the HD598 and I believe they are very close with a slight difference with bass (Stronger on the HD558) and soundstage (smaller on the HD558). 

 

And if a mic is a must then the PC360 would be the next choice. 

 

If you must hear every little footstep with ninjapro (That is what the MW people call it right?) Try the AD700. Its all about return policies. :) Unless you live in a headphone stale place like I do then it is all about taking chances and reselling with a loss. (Due to massive postage costs!!!!)

I'm hoping for a TH700 with the same driver and less fancy cups...

I'm an Xonar fan, but I can't argue with using a Titanium HD for gaming.

If you were using headphones that are 250-Ohm or higher, the Essence STX would be better.



Thanks for the help, I'm going to check out the fiio e11 then, for the soundcard I'm still a bit undecided due to my old creative driver issues, I'm basically scared it will not work as the old one did, and I'm thinking maybe an stx could be an investment for the future, I'll make my mind around this then and decide these days...

I just honestly don't want anything else with non-velour pads. I'm half tempted on getting something like the Pro 900 for when the D7000 bothers me.

If you get a used Xonar DX or D1 ($55), it gives you a fairly good sound card that you can plug the E11 into.

The Xonar DX or D1 are barely ok for driving headphones on their own.

But for $13 (on eBay)  you can get two space batteries (BL-5B) and a battery charger for the E11.

 

But if you feel like just getting the Essence STX, everything is in one package.

I find those Superlux 668B terrible for Gaming if you use DHP or CMSS-3D.

Hello, I'm trying to choose between the 360's and HD 598 however you rate the 360's higher in the fun category yet you still say they are behind them? Could you maybe clarfiy that? As I'm looking for the better sounding one as I can get a clip-on mic from somewhere at a cheap price. They are similary priced where I plan on buying them. Plan to use them for games, movies and music.

 

Thanks

I heard a rumor that the PC360 is based off the older HD595.

The HD598 has really prominent mids, so the bass isn't as present in comparison to the PC360s. The PC360 is better balanced all around, though the HD598 is slightly clearer. The difference is minor, unless you want really forward vocals, which the HD598 is pretty much the undisputed king out of all the headphones I have heard.

I'd still choose the Pc360 over the HD598 due to the built in mic and volume control. Soundstage and positioning are pretty much identical. The PC360 is slightly warmer too.

Would PC 360s work well on that cheap Xonar DG soundcard?

I don't see why not. They're very easy to drive.

It's kind of strange. My system's played along nicely with the X-Fi Titanium HD, no driver issues...and yet reports of Creative driver issues are not uncommon.

 

Meanwhile, the others aren't immune either. Asus driver issues led someone to make these "Unified" drivers. Realtek has had their fair share of complaints too. About the only ones whose drivers I haven't heard complaints about are HT Omega (who just use stock C-Media drivers, and whose cards are still pretty obscure).

 

Is there some sort of curse where all sound device drivers have to suck for someone, somewhere, for inexplicable reasons?
