Hi, im new to the whole high(er) end audio world and have been reading on and off for the past few weeks.
now that i have been exposed to the different quality of sound i am very desatisfied with what im hearing, i have Senn's HD238 with onboard audio (asus p8z68 v pro/gen3).
the sound level is low and not very clear.
my main goal is to have the best sound i can get within my budget for movies and vidoes i watch from my pc.
i have been looking at getting Sennheisers HD555 or 558. and in addition to that am willing to spend another 100-120$ on maybe a new sound card or amp.
- are these headphones good for watching movies, if not do you have any suggestions?
- i am confused about getting a new sound card like the xonar d1/dx and an amp or and external dac/amp like the Fiio e10 or the Nuforce uDac2.
do those external dacs support dts or dd for watching bluray movies?
any other variations/combos or tips would be a great help..
