It will work with the updated E07K though.

Hit them up for the PLYR 2's next, I'm sure you will like them. Or wait until the PLYR 1's with built in DH.

Im kind of hoping I get a break, lol. Haven't had much time to use my own stuff or play games I wanna play, due to all this testing.

I do. Lol.

I honestly dont care much about technicalities. I care about how good they sound to my ears. Just like I loved the DT990/32ohm on the high output impedance E9K. Shouldn't sound good, but it does. Others might be more technical, so I would still recommend an amp with lower output impedance like the Magni.

Im more worried about imperfections you can hear, like channel imbalances.

I know his type of humor. I have the same kind. wink.gif

I will sound serious for something completely ridiculous, and people will believe me. Hahaha.

Don't worry, the subtle satire wasn't lost on me.

 

I agree in that a lot of audiophile discussions get ridiculous like that, from both the subjective and objective sides. All I can say is that when listening to audio equipment, I either like the way it sounds, or I don't like it because either the presentation's not to my tastes or it's obviously defective with a channel imbalance or noise or something else that obviously shouldn't be happening.

 

I've already found my ideal headphone setup, more or less, and I paid surprisingly little for it, though the savings were mitigated when I spent more for newer iterations of the same headphone design, only to put them back up for sale because I just didn't like the overall comfort and sound presentation as much. Sometimes you don't realize that you've already got your favorite headphone (or audio setup in general) 'til you've compared it with a bunch of different ones and came back disappointed every time.

Thanks for your input so far.

 

I went to a friend who owns Beyerdynamic DT 880 and 990, but I have to say, I hate them. I kinda get the feeling, that they have too much treble. 

 

So, my decision is between the HD 650, 600, 598.

 

Does anyone use the HD 650 or 600 with Asus Xonar Essence ST(X)? Is this soundcard good enough to drive them? I don't expect the 650/600 to give its full potential, but I can always buy a better AMP than the one on the Soundcard. I think I would regret buying the HD598 and then have to upgrade to the HD650 later...

That card should be plenty. Just that those Senns arent the best for gaming... the 600 and 650 I mean. They're good not great.

Yes, in terms of gaming I would go with the 598, but if It comes to music, i'm kinda leaning towards the 650 at the moment. 

 

 

I would say 50% is gaming and 50% is music. The Gaming is all competitive (Training/Matches).

 

Which difference is higher?

 

- HD 650 > HD 598 for music

- HD 598 > HD 650 for gaming

Are the sennheiser hd 449 and sennheiser hd 439 good for gaming? I play mostly League of Legends.
Or would I be better with razer kraken pro? I've heard they're good for gaming and the sound quality is okay.

 

And if the sennheiser are better should I consider buying a new soundcard? I'm currently using the integrated audio in my motherboard( VIA VT1708S 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC).

Feel free to suggest other headphones :)

Sorry if I'm asking too many questions..
