Why both ?
I guess X1 is for music right ?
So I decided to stay with my aurvana live! because there seems to be a huge jump in prices after this headphone, if I want something better. I don't really care much for dolby headphone. Maybe only in a couple of games but its optional. I want to ask, if I should bother with getting anything other than my xonar dg ? some dac or other sound card? Maybe external ? Or am I good set in stone with xonar dg? (I could use voume wheel on some external device. Right now I am just controlling volume with control wheel on my g11 keybosard). So I want volume wheel control and just something on my desk so I could easily switch headphones.
That way or another, I was at media markt yesterday and besides testing some normal headphones(god those prices...) I did had a chance to see/try some gaming headsets/headphones. My general impression was always that gaming headsets are more feature rich at better prices than normal headphones. Most sport memory foam, are comfortable etc... with exceptions. There was Creative Evo set and besides being kinda expensive compared to everything else there, it looked very nice! Great build quality, nice cushions, killer looks, detachable usb and jack. built in microphone. Sadly I did not had a chance to use it. I had Creative mkII and Tactic 360 sigma(still have it and using it's amp with my aurvana live! on 360) before and creative must be my fav hedaphone brand. I always liked their warm signature but some creative sets lack detail, have poor build quality or have bad wiring/cable. That Sound Blaster Evo seems to try to improve on everything. There also was siberia v2 set but packgaged with strakingly low price. skullcandy crusher was there too. Comofrtable good cushions but rather poor seal I think.
