Headphone and amp

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I probally will get people telling me to search..

Soo... I want a headphone and amp for gaming and listening to music under $200. Ill be using it on my laptop. I listen to Dubstep/DnB/metal. I am an audio noob. I recommended myself from what ive seen in other (as of music only not gaming) HFI-780,HFI-580,Denon AH-D1100.

I know this is a BAD comparison but i want more bass than the Atrios MG7 IEM

Panasonic HTF600. No amp needed. Does your genres like a $150 headphone does. But for way less. Check it out.

 

Very best,

Not sure if you've made your decision yet but I would recommend the Ultrasone HFi-780's with, I know I'll get beat up for this, the Behringer HA400 amp. The HFi-780's are made for movies and gaming. Don't get me wrong, they sound great for all uses but this is where they really shine. As for the amp. I like this amp because it gives VERY low background noise when you crank up the volume and let me tell you, the volume definitely cranks. The plus part is that this amp has 4 channels. This way if you have friends come over and stuff, they can plug in their headphones too. It is run from a 12v wall adaptor but since you are using it specifically for gaming I didn't think you'd be using it while not having access to an outlet. Headphones: ~$150    Amp: ~$20

Behringer's headphone amps are all pretty much running with a giant resistor in the line to safely give the power to the HFI-780. The output impedance is sky high and they are pretty current limited because they use op amps which are not designed for high current headphones. If you're going to use a Behringer headphone amp, the MA400 is the way to go and it still isn't that great of a choice for low impedance headphones. In a nutshell, I'm disagreeing with this choice because it doesn't make sense from a technical perspective.

I agree with the technical standpoint all the way. I gave that opinion because it 1) Fits in their price range 2) It has multiple channels that could be used for multiplayer games.

I feel mind raped because I cant decide. I wanted to get mind raped with bass not decisions. Lool. I bought the Future Sonics Atrio MG7 because I wanted an IEM but Im unsatified
