Hi, I have only $420, no more no less, to spend on audio for my new pc but I'm a bit lost, I've done a lot of research and don't really know how to best spend those $420.
First of all, I would like to use this money to improve my pc audio, for gaming, watching films and listening to music.
All my musics aren't in .flac or other lossless codec. I have no soundcard (other than my integrated soundcard) or amp but I already have a JVC HA-RX900, they're nice cans but I find the sound to be somewhat too flat, not detailled enough. I don't know if it's because of my integrated soundcard or if I should use an amp to use them at their best.
So I've done a lot of research and ended at those 3 choices:
- ATH-M50 with an audiotrak Prodigy HD2 Advance DE
- DT 990 pro with a cheap amp (don't know which one actually, maybe a Fiio?)
I don't really know wich one of those choices would be the best, I've heard that the ATH-M50 are nice and relatively cheap wich would allow me to buy a soundcard or a cheap amp. Same goes for the DT 990 pro that I can get at the same price than the ATH-M50. And recently, I've heard about the HE-400 wich seems to be a bargain but if I buy them, I would have no more money to buy an amp or even an other soundcard than the one in my motherboard + I don't know if they really worth the money for my use : gaming, listening to .flac and .mp3 and watching films.
Can someone help me to get the best sound out of my skinny wallet?
Sorry for my poor english btw.
