DT990 & PC360 with XONAR DG Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have the Xonar DG and i believe it can handle up to 150 ohms. From all the reading I have done on the forum (Mainly Mad Lust Envy), I am really leaning towards the DT990 Premium 600, but I don't think my Xonar DG can drive it properly. I currently have the M-50s and I can agree with everyone that the sound stage and sound for gaming is terrible, however music is very nice.

 

I play competitive Quake Live & some Team Fortress 2, and I play single player rpgs etc. I really do not want to invest in a new sound card or an expensive amp. I know the PC360s are very good for competitive gaming, but will they sound good for music and general gaming as well? From what I've read the DT900s are very immersive for single player. I do communicate on ventrilo & Mumble quite frequently, but I am not opposed to a clip on or desk mic. I just want all around nice sound through all forms of audio, gaming, music and movies. Would the 32 ohm version of dt990 disappoint? or maybe the cheaper pro dt990?

 

Thanks,

Barry

Heya,

 

Get the DT900 PRO and save a buck, otherwise, get the DT990 250ohm. You'll be fine with anything 250ohms and below.

 

Or, skip that, and get the Fischer Audio FA-011 (also nice and bassy) for even less. It's a great headphone for gaming, and music, and movies.

 

Here's some for sale from another member for a decent price.

 

Very best,

What are the major difference between the dt990 pro and premium? Is it all mainly cosmetic? and those Fischer Audios, I can't seem to find those on amazon or newegg.

Fischer Audio FA-011 at GD. I bought them there. It's $20 shipping from Russia. Worth it.

 

As for your DT990 question, I found this via search.

 

I'd still get the FA-011 for it's cost.

 

Very best,
