[Help] Buying Headphones Gaming+Movies+Music [Solved DT990 Premium 600ohm]

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi, i saw a lot details about everything here and i can't figure which i need or what i can have for my uses.

 

1. So i am planning on buying new headphones for gaming is priority then movies then music, so figures i need something which can simulate me a 5.1 or 7.1, if there is such thing.

 

I live at Israel so delivery from ebay is going to be a problems finding the right item-price-seller-delivery to get them to me.

 

There are so many companies i don't even have idea what to think of. The headphones i am currently using is SteelSeries Gaming 5.1CH so i think i'll have improvement. And i'll need new sound card on the way cause i have XFI XtremeMusic so i don't the headphones will even work or just sound awful, i was thinking about the new Asus card don't recall it's name.

 

2. And it's going to be plug to my Computer if it wasn't clear mainly to computer.

3. Cost anything for like 150$ and above but not too much max i think 250$ but preferd to the lowest but still good with everything

Thanks

Audio Technica AD700. They have wonderful soundstage, perfect for movies and gaming. Iv'e got a buddy who modded them to have a mic so he can use them for gaming. He says they are better than any other headset/ headphones he has ever tried. And the best part, if you look around some, you can find a pair for under 100 bucks.

one sec stay with me, what connections will i need to connect it to Asus sound card ? they say it has low bass AD700 and AD900 fixed that

 

Could you help me to find the AD700 from ebay for 100$ that sends to israel ?

 

I saw this headphones too DT990 (Premium)

If you can get the DT990's, go for them. From what I hear, they have more bass than even the AD900's.

I'll see if the DT990 is expensive, if it's a lot more expensive then i'll check AD900, if thats too expensive then i pick AD700

 

Ho there are 2 kinds, Pro and Premium, ones pros 250ohms and the premium 600ohms, will i feel any different ?

 

Why the Omdiance is so low here ?? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beyerdynamic-DT-990-Over-Ear-Headphones-FiiO-E7-Headphone-Amplifier-Amp-DAC-/300728034848?pt=DJ_Gear_Lighting&hash=item4604c9a620

 

There are like 3 kinds of 990, one with low Nominal impedance 35 or something one with 250 and 600, how come there are 3 kinds :X

 

On the thread he says that Sennheiser PC360   is good almost same as the DT900-990 AD700, should i just buy the Asus Sound card with this headset and be happy ? or i'll really miss stuff not getting the DT ?
 

EDIT : Nvm i already bought Asus phobus should arrive soon i hope , now i just need to choose headphones.

Almost to no and impossible to find DT990Pro, and usually the premium is way too much.

 

And how will i know what ohams it comes, cause they look the same on the pictures and nothing to see what ohams it really is, they just write it up and the price is the same.

Usually the 250-Ohm Pro version is the cheapest.

The Premium version come in 32-Ohm, 250-Ohm and 600-Ohm.

 

The Fischer Audio FA-011 is somewhat like the DT990.

Why they sell it the same price ? isn't more ohms cost more to make and has a better quality ? it's like you buy less power for same amount or some of them sell it even higher.

So you think this is the cheapest i can get ? the Xonar Phobus will run it or will i need Amplifer ?

Overpriced, Amazon has them for $280.

DT990 Pro 250-Ohm, only $180.

Sadly Amazon doesn't deliver to Israel, that's why the are overprice cause the delivery to Israel is more expensive. Didn't have any choice, just think that in Israel it will be even more expensive :X

 

So i ordered the Xonar Phobus 235$ + DT990 Premium 414$ , No freaking choice :X -- so i hope i will feel the different between my XFI XtremeMusic + SteelSeries 5CHv2 Headset.

 

Still do i need Amplfier ? or the soundcard will be enough ?

The sound card should be enough, I've used 600-Ohm headphones on my Essence STX.

Your audio quality will be way improved over the X-Fi & Steel series setup,

If you like classical music, you'll now like it even more.

Israel, I'm sure it's full of nice people who have to pay too much cash (taxes) for everything.

Lol, Expect classical music,, Gaming + Movies will i get Full surround and footsteps dynamic location, i mean will i hear everything in the game and such from where and which location ?

 

That's the important thing ! xD

 

EDIT : Btw is there any way to see what version they send me ? they can get confused or something ? or it says on the box 600ohm, i mean where the hell is it written on ? xD
