Awesome closed back headphones.

Great for sound whoring, but also fun and exciting, very wide soundstage and open expansive sound. great instrument separation.

Excellent positional cues, really good for imersive and competitive gaming.

Recommended :D

 

 

 

The stock pads are trash though, I'd recommend the 900X instead or such. You should be bale to fit many different pads on it :]

What sound card (pc) do u guys recommend for the dt 990 pro 250ohm

post #18333 of 31572

Hello, I'm new to the forums which I found while researching headsets. I read the guide and didn't seem to find a good gaming rating to price ratio for me.

 

I'm looking for a good headset that has cloth or soft ear pads. My old headset was a Turtle Beach DPX21 which had an optical cord go through a USB sound card; Does that decrease the quality of the sound at all should I have just gone straight to USB or to 3.5 millimeter?

 

I play a lot of FPS so sound quality is important, I've seen some debate on this, but surround sound would be a plus if it actually helps. My last two both had the arch break on me after a year or so one being a Gamecom 777 and my last one the Turtle beach DPX21.

 

Also while reading up I heard some people recommend a headphone and mic combo instead and was wondering if anyone could weigh in on that as well.

 

Here are some things I have looked at so far:

 

Razer Carcharias Over Ear PC Gaming Headset - $60

SteelSeries 7H Fnatic - $98

Thermaltake Shock - $80

For a headphone + mic combo I'm looking at these for headphones

Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series Headphones $88

SR850 - Professional Studio Reference Headphones - $50

And for the mic

Zalman Zm-Mic1 High Sensitivity Headphone Microphone - $10

You need surround sound for bf4 mate.. I wouldn't choose a stereo headset nowadays..make sure it's got dolby headphone or some sort of surround sound!

I'm pretty sure that the Dolby Surround Sound (For Headphones) is a marketing gimmick.

Any set of good headphones will give you that surround sound feel if you have a good enough sound card or audio processor.

OS and Filter ?
Also any special settings i should have when i have installed the DGX / xonar drivers ?

I would say to get Unified Xonar Driver version 1.70.

I just use the optical connection for everything, to me the music is good enough.

With my Xonar, I leave the sample rate at 96Khz.

It will be a while before I buy BF3's map pack so not to worry there. Lately I've been playing CS 1.6 and maybe some GO. To be honest most FPS today are disappointing. Anyway point is regardless of stereo or surround I need recommendations.

Well I have an onboard one, not sure how great it is I have an ASRock H61M-VS motherboard that has it. I have the USB soundcard, but Idk how good it is its an Encore Electronics one.

They look nice, but dos pleather ear cushions drive me nuts. I guess you might be able to replace them, most manufacturers charge and arm and leg for them though either up front or in shipping.

thought so. thanks.

I was wondering if the 8323 is any good? I mainly play Counter Strike: GO and I just need a cheap upgrade from my crappy speakers. I don't really want to spend that much because I'm don't play often. Would the HD201's be better than the 8323?

For gaming I'd recommend something open if you can. Koss KSC75 and PortaPros come to mind in your price range. The 75s are only $10 on Amazon currently. For something like GO, I'd want more detail in my sound to make it more exciting. If you need closed, the 8323 aren't bad. I prefer them with velour pads. My 75s get much more head time than my 8323, which currently gets none. I always reach for one of the two Koss.
