I've read some post here about the two products but I still have a few questions. I decided to go with the DT 990 premium 250 ohm because I heard they are great for gaming and also for music/movies. Being new to all this audio stuff i also learned that it needs an amp and a soundcard to function properly. What's the cheapest setup I can do to run this headphones? In other words the cheapest amp and the cheapest sound card I can get to run this at it's full potential.
I read Mad lust envy's headphone gaming guide, and I know this can do 7.1 with the proper setup. I still don't understand much about Dolby headphone virtual surround, but It sounds like it could be what I'm looking for when it comes to gaming.
I've read good reviews about the Fiio E9 running this headset, so all I would need is a 7.1 Sound card. I read about Asus DX sonar 7.1 in some forums but is that the cheapest or best option?
Please feel free to correct me or educate me in the way of the audio. This is going to be my first expensive headphone purchase and I just want to be able to play PC games and watch blue-rays with some good audio quality. I love bass so that's why I'm choosing this over the 32 ohm.
