So after doing my research for the past 6 months trying to figure out what to get I settled on 2 choices
- The Beyerdynamic DT 770 pro
- The Beyerdynamic DT 990 premium
but I am having conflicting information from reading many posts and reviews and I am not what is true and what is not, so I decided to ask everyone here on the forum in hopes to settle this once and for all, both for my self and anyone else in the future who will be in my shoes.
I have a few requests in order for this info to be as correct as possible,
- Please don't comment if you never owned/used any of the above mentioned headphones
- Please don't recommend any other headphones as I have already done my research and settled on those two
The questions I would love to be answered are the following:
- What is better for gaming and movies the 770 or 990? (will be used 60% gaming, 40% movies...noise isolation is not a big deal)
- higher ohm=better quality, but some say a laptop can drive 250 ohm (some said 600) just fine with very little difference than 32 or 80 ohms, and some said that it cant and would sound very low/ tiny/ muffled... what is true? (I own an Asus G75 laptop if that helps)
- I own an external sound card with 3D CMSS (similar to Dolby Headphones) called the "xi-fi go pro"
but I am unsure how much power it can drive into headphones, so I am thinking of getting the external Recon3d http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Recon3D-External-Enhancer/dp/B005FKT70O/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1345570837&sr=1-3&keywords=recon3d
The problem is no where on either product is it mentioned on how much power it can drive, and contacting Creative support team lead to them saying they have no info on that and that they cant find it out for me -_- and by searching online I couldn't find ANY info regarding that so I would be grateful for any help from people who own either or know of a better product (that has virtual surround as I love playing with it on) but please dont suggest and amp without the virtual surround sound (Dolby headphones or 3D CMSS) .
Thanks everyone :)
