Past few days have been a trip trying to figure out what audio solution I want for my gaming rig in January. The headphones/headset I choose are pretty much exclusively for gaming as I could care less about my music.
Choices are pretty much get AKG Q701's and figure out what amp/dac or sound card to get (This part is throwing me for a loop, so many opinions on what sounds better, having an amp that can drive it properly, etc)
Cut out all the hassle and get the Sennheiser PC 363D's and just put up with a headset.
Who knew audio could be so complicated.
