I asked those questions to help me make decent gaming audio setup so please answer me .
whose better headphone DT990 or HE400 ? and are they on the same level ?
i need overall good soundcard for movies and music and speciallly for gaming ?
do i need amp with the soundcard and the headphone ?
is it true that there is 5.1 and 7.1 headphone/headsets ?
and whose better headset or headphone ?
1. No clue I haven't owned both. I do like my DT990pro a great deal, but I am dying to save up for the HE400 and purchase them.
2. I would ask in Nameless PC guide thread. The PC crew is over there and they have a lot better clue. I am going to say if you aren't going to buy an amp then yes you will want something like the ASUS STX, If you have an amp to add in the chain then no if your onboard (has Dolby headphone) doesn't have any static ground issues, if it does then just get a Asus DG for the Dac portion and to have the ability to have dolby headphone.
3. See 2
4. Yes and some people do enjoy them, Those people usually can't use Dolby Headphone or CMSS cause their hearing won't translate positional audio well. There was a reviewer over on the MLG boards that had this issue.
5. That is up to you and your needs. Usually headphones though. Exceptions would be Sennhieser PC360, and Beyerdynamic.MMX300. These headsets are based on already available headphones on the market that are usually cheaper because you are not paying for the mic tech that is built in.
Not sure if that clears anything up for you or not.
