Hey guys, looking at getting a pair of headphones for <$200. I'm looking to use them for a mix of music and gaming, with music being slightly more prioritised. I listen to a range of music, mainly whatever is in the top 10 plus a lot of rock, metal and dub-step. It's also important that there is some nice bass ;). With gaming I'd like to be able to use them to pinpoint footsteps and gunshot directions.
I will be listening to music and gaming on a late 2011 Macbook Pro and have a few question regarding this. Will the quality of the headphones be greatly hindered by the sound card or lack there of in this machine? for the surround sound I need for gaming will I need an external device (mixamp?)? or will it all be available through the Macbook/headphones?
I'm looking at getting the dt-770's as they seem to tick the above boxes but I am looking for any suggestions or approvals :).
Any help is much appreciated. If I have broken a rule or posted this in the wrong place please let me know.
